"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."

"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 husband and I stayed in this charming farmhouse for Presidents' Day weekend with our three-year-old and one-year-old girls, and we had a wonderful time. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for cooking, as well as plenty of spices and condiments. The house's floor plan accommodated our family perfectly: we used the two downstairs bedrooms and put the baby's travel crib in the passageway between the living room and master bedroom. One thing I'd note to families with small kids is that there isn't a bathtub; but our girls did fine with a big bowl and some wash cloths in the shower. The setting is idyllic, with views eastward across the lake in one direction and westward over a big pasture in the other direction. We had frigid temps and loads of snow while we were there, but we were still able to play outside a bit, using the sleds stored in the barn on the quiet dead-end road that the house sits at the end of. We also enjoyed a little time at the local branch of the town library, where the librarian was nice enough to let us borrow a few DVDs. It was the perfect "country getaway" that we'd been looking for!"
