"We found the home lovely and modern, with wonderful decorations, coordinated furnishings, clean and roomy with two full size bathrooms and a nice sized kitchen. We grilled dinners on the second floor deck and had our morning coffee there as well. It is super quiet at night and we didn't even miss central A/C because of the ceiling fans in the main area and bedrooms. It is all it was advertised to be. We had ice cream at Newbury Harbor, went grocery shopping in Newbury, actually took the 90 minute drive to Hampton Beach, and went to the movies in Claremont on the only rainy day we had. We walked the John Hay trail, took a short hike up Keersage mountain at Rollins State Park, went to an outlet mall in Tilton about an hour away. And even though it sounds like we we busy, in fact we relaxed much of the time right at the house or at the Chalk Pond beach. We used the floating devices and the canoe and had fun swimming and canoeing around the pond. All in all, a very nice home, a great location, a clean, quiet pond, trees, woods, lakes, and mountains all lending themselves to having a most wonderful time."

"Simply put The North Star House made our vacation. Our 10-day stay at Bill and Jenny’s house was a mini family reunion. Our daughter was spending her Sophomore Summer at Dartmouth and family joined us from New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts for 10 days of fun and relaxation. There are wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces to sip cocktails and play lawn games. The bedrooms are charmingly furnished and boast more than ample closet space, wonderfully comfortable mattresses and sumptuous linens. Likewise, the bathrooms are meticulously clean and stocked with everything you need and more. The Connecticut River is perfect for river activities and North Star Canoe Rental (no relationship to the property) set us up with canoes and kayaks for a great day on the water. There are many great restaurants in the area. When we weren’t having wonderful meals out we used the well-appointed kitchen to make some wonderful meals at home. And if you aren’t able to leave all of your work at home and need to stay connected the WiFi was great. We’ve stayed in many vacation rentals here and abroad and North Star House is The Best! We are already planning another visit to this very special property."

"My family had a lovely time in Canaan this summer. My children picked apples, berries and herbs on the property, biked in the driveway, and enjoyed checking out the resident groundhog and cows. The spacious house is well loved and the bathrooms are recently updated. Ailsa responded quickly to any concerns and questions. We greatly enjoyed nearby attractions: we swam at Canaan Street Lake every day, hiked Cardigan Mt three times and enjoyed the local farmers markets and farms. Hanover is only 30 minutes away with King Arthur Baking Co., the magnificent Montshire Science Museum, high quality grocery stores, and plenty of restaurants."
