Recent Merrimack Valley reviews

  • A little slice of relaxation

    "My family stayed here for several nights this October. We had a wonderful time. Even my 2 year old loved it, and thought it was his own home! The small bedroom off the main bedroom was perfect for him, and his first time in a big bed, and he LOVED it! Everything was so comfortable and beautiful. The property was filled with beautiful fall colored leaves, everything was picturesque wherever you looked. Conveniently located 15 mins to the Tilton outlets (which "conveniently" we needed to stop at) and 15 mins to Concord in the other direction. But we just loved relaxing and playing in the yard. What made it even nicer was the most hospitable hostess Tori. She left us a sweet Fall/Halloween greeting, along with an even sweeter little Halloween treat for our son. I'd highly recommend staying here!"

  • A piece of heaven!

    "I hesitated to write a review as I wanted to keep this place all to myself and didn't want to give away this hidden gem, but the owner was so wonderful, I just have to share my experiences with this piece of heaven. The property is as described. It is a simple cabin which is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The owner was flexible and even met with me before the visit so that I could view the cabin to see that it would suit my needs. The owner was always available if I had any questions and graciously shared vast knowledge of history of the area. The lake is pristine. The area just beautiful. There are several other lakes nearby to explore, but once you experience Rocky Pond, they all pale in comparison. There is a public boat put-in which abuts the camp, as the owner notes, at which you will see traffic -- mostly on the weekend, but as a solitary traveler, it kept me in contact with the world and I did not mind it at all. You will find yourself in the middle of the woods overlooking a gorgeous pond, yet downtown Hollis is just a few minutes away with grocery, farm stands, small restaurants, etc. You can even find a Walmart within 6 miles if you really need it. The cabin is well equipped with utensils you need for meals and prep. Wood was provided for fire in the stove on cool nights. Beaver Brook Association, located in Hollis, maintains a wonderful trail system which is well marked and well maintained for anything from a short, easy walk, to more challenging hiking experiences. The office is open during the week and they are very helpful if you need information finding trails to suit your needs and maps are left available for you at the main office when they are not open. If you love the woods, love peace and quiet and getting away from it all, and want to spend your days hiking, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and peacefully relaxing at a clean sandy beach, this is the place for you. This camp is a place where you can re-connect with yourself, family, friends and other loved ones, without the distraction of today's world while basking in the more simple pleasures of life. I spent a week at this glorious location and I loved it so much that before I left, I booked a return visit for next summer at the owner's larger camp so that I can return and share this Shangri-La with those I love."

  • So Comfortable and Cozy

    "I love this cottage! It may look small on the outside but it's magical on the inside. It's the kind of cottage where you feel like you can kick your feet up and feel right at home. It has a wonderful rustic decor and every time I looked around, there was something new I had missed the first time. The best place of all is sitting on the comfy love seat with the big pillows right in front of the gas fireplace. There is wifi and over 900 channels as well. The owner, Stephan, is very nice to deal with and he made sure the cottage was warm and well lighted before my arrival. I definitely want to go back soon. I highly recommend this adorable cottage for anyone looking for a wonderful getaway in the winter. Also, it must be spectacular in the summer as it's right on the water. Thank you, Stephan."

To reach the brewery, take Everett turnpike exit 10 onto Daniel Webster Highway from your Merrimack Valley lodging.

Apple Picking for Homemade Apple Pie

Merrimack Valley vacation rentals are the perfect choices if you want to pick apples and make a homemade apple pie.

Beautiful Merrimack Valley, New Hampshire

Merrimack Valley is best reached by Highway 3 if you are coming out of Massachusetts and the Boston area. There is not a direct interstate running through New Hampshire from east to west, so a lot of little roads must take you to Merrimack if you elect not to come through Massachusetts. Merrimack Valley runs along the Merrimack River so the drive along Highway 3 will be a beautiful and scenic one.
