Canaan Village is delightful, this apartment is well located for the farmers market and recreation.
The Northern Rail Trail is just two hundred yards from the apartment and was great for riding bikes and hiking. Fall colors are just starting to show. Local farmers and artisans made the market a delight. We hiked Mt Cardigan and we had easy access to the trail. The meeting house has been recently renovated and the Canaan museum was interesting.
Canaan Carriage House
We found the property easily but we were disappointed at the appearance of the back walkpath, broken screen in the door and blow-up mattress on the floor.as well as General appearance for the price point. The bedrooms had lovely towels to use and there was a washer and dryer in the kitchen with the venting pipe running through the upper level of the living space. It might be a good idea to use the upper level as the 3rd bedroom, with curtained privacy vs the floor.
This place has many, many attributes and renter appreciated things going for it. If the items mentioned by this reviewer are important to you then this is probably not the place for you. This is the first negative review (not 4 or 5 stars) we have had after many years of renting (we are new to HomeAway, this is our first guest from HomeAway). One item is inaccurate however which we would like to correct. There are no blow-up mattresses in the place. All beds are regular (traditional) queen sized mattresses. We do readily admit we were not able to repair the one loose screen before my trip and assumed that it was not needed right away because the air-conditioning was expected to be needed for the entire stay; we are sorry (we apologize to the guest) if they wanted to turn off the AC and preferred the August heat with screens in open windows. The screen has been repaired. The dryer vent is in keeping with the clean and modern feel of the apartment (1895 building with all new interior). It is of course a conservation thing as most of the year in this climate the heat from the dryer vent adds to the heat of the room; this is more comfortable and saves resources. We have had mixed input on the location of the third bed. Because we have lots of room we have choices. Originally the bed was as recommended by this reviewer and we moved it by request of several other guests. If you stay here let me know which way you think would be best. Or if you are going to stay here and can anticipate which configuration you might prefer please let me know before you arrive; we can reconfigure it for your preferences quite easily. We mostly get families who would like to have everyone sleeping on the same level, but we are happy to adapt to your needs. The walkway is the original carriage way for putting a carriage in a Victorian aged dwelling at night. We have been converting the carriage way renovating and improving the walkway for safety in snowy and icy winter weather; we have a year round perspective on such things. We are always improving the interior and exterior look and feel of the place with safety in mind and we have a long way to go in such a large place. However, our intentions are to fully re-landscape the walkway and garden while repainting the back of the house. Many guests prefer to use the alternative access through the top of the garden and then across the bridge where a few cascading day lilies and other flowers are still present until September.
Everything was as it should be.
