  • 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!"

  • Great place for families on a quiet pond. Serene setting with a nice sandy beach at water's edge.

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Papoose Pond. The home was comfortable and well-stocked. We really had everything we needed; from comfy beds to a small sailing dinghy & canoe. Blueberry & raspberry picking along the road was so fun! We had a great time exploring the pond in the canoe, and the surrounding area on bicycles. Water was perfect for small kids, shallow water with a sandy area for playing. Owners were helpful and responsive to questions/problems. They called to check in the first afternoon we were in the house to make sure we were finding what we needed. We had a small plumbing problem while we were there and it was fixed within the day by their local caretakers. We happened to be in town while the 'Waterford World's Fair' was going on about 10 minutes away, the kids loved it! We had ten people in the house for two of the nights we stayed there, and it accommodated everyone very well. We'd definitely stay there again."

  • Gorgeous house and stunning views!

    "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 :-)"

  • 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!"
