Fireside WarmthGuest comment entered by owner
We had a wonderful time enjoying the huge fireplace, comfortable couches, great books, games, internet and open living concept with beautiful hardwood floors. We enjoyed the Catamount theater with foreign films in St. Johnsbury and the restaurants, especially the Mexican restaurant, called Alburritos in Littleton, NH. We also took in the skiing at Burke Mountain and loved the small town atmosphere in both communities. We were visiting family in the area, but loved having a private get away.

Fun Family Getaway...
Fun Family Getaway...
This property was the perfect location for a family summer getaway! The home was spacious, fun (a fully stocked toybox in the living room!) and comfortable for my whole family with young children to enjoy. The peace and quiet of the location was fantastic. The community association club house and beach are a quick drive down the hill or short hike down the nature trail behind the house. We used the fireplace, made full use of the washer/drier and loved having a bathroom on every floor. The location halfway between Littleton, NH and St Johnsbury, VT made for easy access to the touristy shopping & activities in both towns. The number of outdoors activities in the area is virtually limitless - we climbed Cannon Mountain in Franconia Notch during our visit. If you're looking to vacation in an 'out-doorsy' setting without going camping you'll love this home! If you're looking for a condo/resort vacation you might have a tough time. I'd highly recommend if you're a fisherman, kayaker or water sport enthusiast. The owners are very hospitable and easy to do business with. We're hoping to come back in the future!

Valerie and her family of five enjoyed spending time at the beautiful secluded beach. The children enjoyed the clean water with sandy beach and bottom. There is plenty of water area for non-swimmers and those advanced swimmers who want to swim to the dock. They also loved canoeing and using the kayaks and the sunfish sailboat. They plan to return again this summer and take advantage of the beach and the local amusement parts. Their favorite is Six Gun city and they also loved Santa's Village and Storyland.

Rob and his family stated they had a lot of fun, enjoyed all the local skiing and especially loved Burke Mountain and Canyon. They felt the house worked great for their family of four and his sister and family from Maine. They loved the large fire place and having nightly fires and the showers were hot! They are looking forward to coming again next year.

About the owner: We are a professional couple with three children and two golden retriever dogs. Two have graduated from high school, one from college, one in college and one is a senior at St. Johnsbury Academy. We love travelling and our children have travelled and lived abroad in Germany and China. The best part of the locaton has been the beach, the beach house, the clay tennis courts and access for hiking, fishing,canoeing, kayaking, and sunfish sailing. The summer beach is the most spectacular setting, with mountain views and crystal clear water for swimming with a jumping dock and great sand castle building. There are large adirondack chaairs for viewing the lake and mountains and a full kitchen for indoor and outdoor entertaining at the beach front. There is a large patio for outdoor entertaining at the beach house and dogs are allowed in this area, but not on the beach. It is truly a peaceful, yet fun place for the whole family with ample room for playing and yet quiet space for reading at the beach. There are never more than eight to ten families at a time and often you will have the beach all to yourself. The Waterford Springs Corporation is only open to those who own property and their guests. Many of the families are from the Boston area and there are now about ten families that are permanent residents. The road has mostly physicians , nurses and other health care providers. There are teachers and builders in the development and it is a very friendly and fun loving community.
Why the Owner Chose Waterford:
Most importantly it is a short driving distance to both towns of Littleton and St. Johnsbury, with movie theatres, museums, art galleries, shopping, restaurants, and also quick access to five ski mountains, a mountain bike park, horseback riding, three close golf ranges, miniature golf, and the dogs love the ability to be able to run on the country roads with little traffic.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property has the benefit of a private beach with stellar swimming conditions. It is nestled in a bay of the Connecticut River and there is access for canoeing, kayaking and some sailing. For the fall the leaf viewing is beautiful along all the country roads and can easily be walked or cycled. There are many local Fall activities and with the splendor of leaf viewing, the tranquility and color are very relaxing and enjoyable for the whole family. It is within an hours drive to theme parks such as Santa's Village, Six-gun City and Whale's Tale, which are all in New Hampshire. For skiing it is close to the five mountains of Burke, Bretton Woods, Cannon, Jay Peak and Loon.
