"The pictures the owners have posted, along with the nicely detailed description, tell the REAL story of this beautiful and comfortable home, which is situated perfectly in a very private, protected, yet superbly convenient location. We were searching for that elusive vacation that is hard to come by --- where your find a place that is exactly as advertised, with no complications or unpleasant surprises, and the ability to actually relax and be away from it all (without having to literally be away from it all, if you so choose). Well, we found it here!
We bought all of our groceries in the small village grocer, and found that they had everything we needed at surprisingly reasonable prices (they offered a very nice selection of beers & wines for a small place, they do not sell liquor). Be sure to try some local produce, we bought fresh corn on the cob and broccoli, both of which were delicious (the corn was exceptional). Meals were so enjoyable, from preparing them in the well-stocked kitchen with amazing views to eating them at the bar, dining room table, comfy on the couch, or while taking in splendid scenery on the deck.
We slept great, and enjoyed the breeze and one pleasant evening of soothing rain since we had the windows open just the right amount.
We took the short drive to the Mt Washington Hotel and rode the Cog Wheel train to the summit, as well as checking out a few cascades, and local Bethlehem shops. Other than that, although there are plenty of hiking and skiing options within 15-30 minutes, we just stayed in and savored every moment we could at this special secret retreat.
It was very hard to leave.......
BTW I travel extensively for business and personal purposes, and have never been inclined to write a review before. I just had to in this case, as I give this my very highest recommendation!"
