                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Welcome to the Mt Washington Valley and Humphrey's Ledge Mt House. Sam and I have traveled all over the US and many parts of the World, but always loved to come back to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. For 20 years we traveled to this NH wonderland from Massachusetts on weekends to hike, ski, canoe and bike. We couldn't wait to retire and settle here permanently. We just love the mountains (especially the fall colors), the rivers, lakes and the friendly community. With our weekend house now our rental house, we get to enjoy visitors from all over the US and Europe. We hope you will enjoy all the area has to offer. Just ask us for some travel tips! Birdy and Sam, Bartlett, New Hampshire

                      Why the Owner Chose Bartlett:
                      Our decision to buy a vacation home in the White Mountains of New Hampshire started with extensive visits to all the New England states and sites of interest. We chose the Mt. Washington Valley because it is not only a year round recreation mecca, but is also centrally located between Maine and Vermont. We are 70 miles from the Maine's rocky coast and only an hour away from Vermont's rolling green hills. In addition, with the mix of outdoor recreation with cultural events such as plays, concerts we don't miss the busy urban environment we left behind.
