From the Gunstock website - Gunstock is a family friendly resort in the heart of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. With amazing views and great terrain, Gunstock also offers night skiing.

About Pam and Perry Smith

Hello! We are excited to share our Lakes Region home with you. There is so much to do in New Hampshire! We enjoy skiing, hiking at Mount Major, kayaking, exploring the countryside on motorcycles, lake activities, going to concerts at the Bank of NH Pavilion (10 minutes away), and embracing all that this area has to offer. We hope you will too!

Why Pam and Perry Smith chose Gilford

Welcome to our Lakes, Mountains & Music Getaway!

Located in the heart of New Hampshire's beautiful Lakes Region, here you can explore the area's most incredible mountains and lakes - go hiking, skiing, swimming, boating - and so much more! For music lovers, the Bank of NH Pavilion is a short 10 minute drive. Come for a concert and treat yourself for a few days of adventure or relaxing!

About our vacation home

Our home is a 2 bedroom (queen beds), 2 full bath retreat, perfect for a family or 2 couples. It is a two story home with one bedroom and full bath upstairs, and the other bedroom and full bath downstairs.

There is a large living room with comfy furniture, electric fireplace for ambiance, large screen tv and dvd player (and a bunch of dvds!), free internet, and books, board games and even some craft supplies. The couch pulls out to a queen size bed if needed. We have 2 child size sleeping bags, and there is a large walk in closet for storage of sports equipment or luggage.

We have a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and stainless steel appliances. There is a breakfast bar, as well as a dining area with a sunny mountain view. The upstairs area is an open concept, very airy and bright, with a cozy reading nook by the patio door to enjoy mountain breezes. We provide a crock pot, pots & pans, dishes, utensils and everything you might need for your stay. We also keep paper plates, paper towels and other basics stocked.

The two bedrooms are large with bureaus for clothes storage and large closets. We provide clean linens and plenty of blankets. Bathrooms (did I mention there two full baths, one on each floor? Loads of privacy!) will have clean towels provided, as well as a hair dryer. There is also a washer/dryer unit in the upstairs bath.

The deck is large and has incredible sunset mountain views. In the winter, make sure to check out Gunstock Mountain all lit up for nighttime skiing!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The property description and pictures on line enticed us to stay but this home exceeded our expectations. The layout is great for gathering and for more privacy when wanted and the view from the deck was fabulous with the changing leaves. The house is well stocked, dishes, glasses, silverware etc and has comfortable beds and great fluffy towels. It was a very convenient base for us to explore the lakes region and the wonderful selection of DVDs a terrific bonus for after dinner watching. The house was spotless and clearly well cared for.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome and we will return with pleasure.

A lovely property in such a beautiful location.

We had a wonderful stay. The property was lovely and perfect for two adult couples. Pam was a pleasure to talk to and more than accomodating. We'll definitely consider renting from them again.
