Merriview provides year-round enjoyment to people of all ages who wish to explore North Conway and the White Mountains. Swim, take a hike, or relax at the beach at beautiful Echo Lake, only 1.5 miles down the road, or fish, swim, canoe, kayak, or ride a tube down the Saco River at the beach located 1 mile from our home. Make your way a mile in the other direction and you'll reach the waterfalls of Diana's Baths, perfect for hiking, swimming, splashing, and picnicking. __________________________________________________________________________
Those who want a workout are invited to extended hikes in the Presidential Range and other nearby mountains, including Kearsarge North, of which our home provides a beautiful view. The area welcomes cyclists with dedicated bike lanes stretching across the main roads and novice to advanced mountain biking. Guests who enjoy heights will particularly appreciate the proximity to Cathedral Ledge, home to some of the best rock climbing in the region, while golfers will value the accessibility to the championship 9-hole course at the White Mountain Hotel & Resort. Those wishing to get in touch with the serenity of nature will love the area nature walks and bird watchers can get their fix while relaxing on our deck as they gaze across protected wetlands and mountains. __________________________________________________________________________
During the fall, take a scenic drive through the White Mountain National Forest along the famous Kancamagus Scenic Byway, which offers numerous hiking trailheads, picnic spots, and breathtaking scenic outlooks. Or drive just one hour to Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeastern U.S., and hike to the summit or take the cog railway up to the top! __________________________________________________________________________
Winter offers abundant opportunities for downhill and cross-country skiing, tubing, snow shoeing, and ice skating. Multiple nearby ski resorts are just minutes away, including Cranmore (3 miles), Attitash (6 miles), Black Mountain (11 miles), Wildcat (17.5 miles), and Bretton Woods (27 miles). At the Farm by the River (2.3 miles), guests can enjoy sleigh rides in the winter and horseback riding during warmer months. Also in warmer months, ski resorts offer adventure activities like zip lines, rope courses, mountain coasters, and summer tubing.
Storyland, a very popular children's theme park, is only 13 minutes away. The bustling town of North Conway itself is a 5 minute drive away and offers tax-free shopping at local shops as well as at an outlet mall, a live theater, a movie theater, museums, and spas. Guests can also hop on the Conway Scenic Railroad in town and take a vintage railroad tour through the Moat Mountain Range or through the breathtaking Crawford Notch area. North Conway and the surrounding area offer expansive dining opportunities from local breweries, to family friendly restaurants, to farm to table fare and fine dining options.
About: When we decided to search for a place we could go to escape the routine of our daily lives sitting at a desk, somewhere we could go year-round to relax comfortably or to be active and adventurous, we knew the White Mountains would be perfect. After spending time working in the Middle East, we appreciated the beautiful, lush scenery in the area even more. Shaun spent vacations here in North Conway when he was growing up, and had wonderful memories of such a special spot. We are honored to be able to share Merriview with others so that they may create their own lasting memories just as we have.
Why North Conway: From the minute we walked into this house, we knew it was the right one for us. Having grown up in the Midwest, Patti was ecstatic to bid adieu to the plains and find a home with such beautiful mountain views right outside the window. We loved that the house had the feeling of a chalet, but offered lots of privacy, with 4 bedrooms and 2 separate living areas, which would make the house a perfect place to spend time with our family and friends for years to come. Finally, the house offered an opportunity to do a complete kitchen renovation, so that we could get the gourmet kitchen we’ve always wanted!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Many houses in the area have great views or proximity to beautiful attractions, but Merriview excels at perfectly combining the two. Merriview is in a prime location, which means you can get anywhere you want to go very quickly, by car, by bike, or even by foot. You know the road will always be plowed and easily accessible by car in the winter. While enjoying the accessibility offered by the location, you’ll still have beautiful views of all the natural beauty of the region.
We’ve attempted to make the ambiance inviting for all circumstances. For those rainy days, we invite you to kick back and watch free streaming Netflix on either of the two brand new flat screen TVs. Adults can choose one movie to watch upstairs, while the kids can watch another downstairs at the same time. For channel surfers, sports aficionados and everyone in between, we also provide digital cable, HD channels, and WiFi.
Finally, at Merriview you have the option to have local, fresh farm food waiting for you upon arrival--this could include a simple package of local milk, eggs, and sausage or bacon for your breakfast, local beef or chicken, fresh local vegetables, and artisan bread for a deliciously fresh dinner, and much more! (contact us for more info) Having such fresh ingredients at your fingertips in a brand new kitchen will make it tough to decide between staying in to eat and going out to one of North Conway’s great restaurants, but you can always stay longer and have plenty of time to do both!
