"My family and I have stayed in this home on an annual basis since my children were infants. We have grown into the home and the kids call it "their ski house". The owner has always been super responsive to any question or concern. We enjoy the privacy with the surrounding woods, the open concept of the main living area and multiple sleep areas. The large mudroom is great for families. It is just a short drive to Sunday River and the driveway is always well attended after snow storms. We have rented several homes in other areas over the years and this property is outstanding. Thanks - we'll be back next year!"

"While I stayed in the Mountain House Lodge next door, I got to see the Farm House and was almost jealous that I didn't stay there. Each bedroom was more charming than the other and was treated to a wonderful ping pong match with the gracious owner Julie who I suspect let me win (just being modest). Just a great experience, fantastic views, diverse walking trails and nice access to other activities. Very relaxing."

"words can not express how wonderful the house on the hill was for our winter in Maine. A real home with high end linens, furniture and full stocked kitchen. Anne does not skimp on anything. I rented this home sight unseen for the winter and I was amazed with the high quality and cleanliness of the house. It is a house with all the special touches you want when sneaking away. Not to mention the very special and king people that take a hand in helping with the House on the Hill like Peg/Bob and Ben the plow man. This home is exceptional in all ways.
Our walks on Howard pond and easy trips to the Sunday River Mountain and Gould Academy to visit my children made my weekends there just perfect and exactly what I was looking for in a winter rental. Anne has a little piece of heaven there for sure! I hope to enjoy it during the summer months as I feel it was a 10+ in the quiet of winter. Thank you so much to all at the House on the Hill for sharing and making it such a very special winter for my family and myself!"

"This house was gorgeous inside and out- it had fantastic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows on the mountain facing side (including the two-story living room), and a stunning breakfast bar (likely made from a tree from the property, though I'm not sure on that one!). The rooms were all good-sized and most had their own temperature control so everyone could stay comfortable, and the three full bathrooms were useful for large groups. We had stunning views of the foliage, and I can imagine it being gorgeous in the winter or summer as well!
Our group of 9 adults was very comfortable, and I think another one or two could have stayed without anyone needing a top bunk; for families with teens or children, 13 would be comfortable.
The owner was accommodating and responsive to work with on our stay.
The only cons/things to be aware of: the walls were on the thin side so conversations carry pretty well through the house - we turned our fan on so it took a lot of noise to bother us, though! Also, 4WD is recommended in the winter but the driveway is pretty steep - those of us with manual transmissions got the trick down pretty quickly of hitting the driveway in second gear to make it up all the way, but I would drive an automatic if you can!
Overall, we had an awesome, fun stay, and thought the house was better than the wedding venue :-)"
