Thornton house description

Retreat to the fresh, mountain air of this White Mountain cottage. The eco-built cottage is private, yet close to all amenities. It features a warm, wood interior and a Vermont Castings gas stove. The bright open-concept main floor has living area, fully equipped kitchen, full bath, and laundry, which is overlooked by a cathedral ceiling. A 3 bedroom mezzanine has 2 rooms, 2 with double beds, and 1 with 3 twin beds. A pullout couch lets the cottage sleep up to 8. Loon and Cannon Mountains are 15 min by car; Waterville Valley Mountain is a 25 min. drive south. The deck provides a beautiful Mountain View and steps out to the fire pit and the 70-acre property with hiking and snow-shoe trails, a pond, a beaver dam, and a path to the Pemmigewasset riverfront. We welcome pets (50$/ visit fee) and have made the cottage very child friendly. Check the reviews of past guests and book with us. We take pride in keeping our on-line info up-to-date.


Is your cottage available?: I don't want to waste your time, so I allways keep our cottage availability up to date! If it says the time is available, it is. If you would like to book the time, send me an email with your dates, pets, and number of people. If you have any questions that are not answered in the description, feel free to ask away! I answer my emails quite promptly. If you want to go ahead and book, mention this in your email, and I can send you a rental agreement right away. I also keep the rates up to date and accurate. But if you would like a quote attached to my reply to you, this is easy to do. I look forward to hearing from you.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We are a family with three young children who live in Toronto, Ontario and love to vacation in New Hampshire, we have a Viszla. Jeremy is a contractor, builder and Solar Panel Instaler and Stephani is a commercial photographer specializing in Food and Interiors. We love spending quality time together and cherish the time we spend at the cottage. We love it so much we want to share it when we are not there so other people can experience the restful rejuvenation we get when we are there.

                  Why the Owner Chose Thornton:
                  The property on which the cottage is built has been in our family since 1929. My Grandmother's parents built as small cottage (Wadcheeaukee East) when she and her siblings were teenagers. Her family spent summers there, then eventually my grandmother spent summers there, and my mother, sister and I would visit in the summers. Eventually, my sister and I inherited the property and because we wanted to preserve the family history, we thought that we should build another cottage on the lot (the original cottage is too small) so that we could take our families there and share our love of the White Mountains, and the New Hampshire area.
