  • What a special retreat!

    "Our family had an amazing week at Merrill House. We found the house incredibly inviting and quite spacious for our group. We enjoyed cooking amazing meals in the old kitchen and savoring them in the Dining Hall, which seated all of us. Our evenings were spent in the Great Hall, with games, puzzles and dancing. The children had an amazing time in the swimming pond, particularly jumping in from the rope swing. We bought kites and spent a wonderful afternoon flying kites. The grounds allowed us to set up various games, such as a volleyball/badminton net and relay races. One of us is a painter who found numerous spots to set up and spend the afternoon painting. The drive to nearby parks for hikes were worth the trip, but we certainly enjoyed 'staying home' relaxing at the Merrill House's porch. It was an absolutely wonderful experience for all. Thank you!"

  • Worth every penny... and more.

    "It's always a crapshoot when you rent a house unseen. 24 previous 5-star ratings was almost too good to be true, but in the absence of any first-hand experience, it was all we had to go on. I am happy to be the 25th 5-star fan, and I'm no pushover. The last place we rented (February vacation in Colorado) got 2 stars out of me. Everything about the house says the owner cares - really cares. Everything was AT LEAST as good as advertised. It was clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and impressively stocked. There was nothing that you could need that wasn't there and easy to find. The owner has a spectacular housekeeping service that maintains everything in great order. When was the last time you switched on a lamp containing a 3-way bulb, and all three settings worked? This doesn't even happen in my own house! And yet, every lamp I used had a properly-functioning 3-way bulb. This is superb attention to detail in my opinion. Anne's home was ours. She trusts people enough to put everything 'out there'. Rather than hide things for fear of damage or theft, she provides everything as if she were having her own family stay there. It is all thoroughly clean and orderly, with instructions for everything. Top shelf. This is a find. I will be back many times, I expect, and year-round. I would live there if I had the chance. Anne - you are a gem of a person, with all your personal attention to everything, and your very personable manner in all emails and notes. My best regards to Bob and Peg who care for the place. I believe I will likely never have a rental experience this good ever again - except at the House on the Hill."

  • Comfortable welcoming cabin in the woods.

    "We had a great ski week with our three college age sons with lots of fun making fires & playing board games. Cabin is well equipped with everything you need to be comfortable. With DHL it also kept our children "connected." Close to town and support services like snow plowing provided which insured getting to mountain to ski after a foot of snow. We really enjoyed New Year's fireworks at Sunday River. Cabin is well maintained with good heating system as well as a great fireplace with stocked woodshed. The cabin is located at the top of a steep hill (mountain road) and was a bit challenging to climb in the ice the first night but was fine for the rest of our stay. Made wonderful memories and had a nice stay at "The Cabin.""

  • Just the wedding they wanted.

    "I'm not sure I can find the words to describe my first reaction to Mountain House, I had seen photos but they had not prepared me for how stunning this property really is. Anyone looking for a beautiful outdoor setting for a wedding, family reunion, or any other occasion where you might need to put up a number of people I would without hesitation recommend this venue. It is obvious by how beautifully kept the grounds are, to to the cleanliness of the homes themselves that Julie and Frank pride themselves on maintaining a first rate establishment. I wish everyone the same wonderful experience that my family had!"
