  • Wonderful stay! Already booked again for 2015!

    "We were so happy with our stay at the Hill Cottage! The owner was very helpful when it came to planning our stay. The property itself is kept extremely clean and stocked with all of the necessities. We used the kayaks that were provided often. The outdoor fireplace/grill was so lovely and the indoor fireplace was perfect on a rainy day. The beach and water was also very nice and clean. The location is perfect for hiking and very close to North Conway for some shopping or eating out. We were so impressed, we already booked with Ken for another stay next summer!"

  • Vacation Bargain

    "My son, friend and I were pleasantly surprised on how nice this cottage was. The interior was exactly as the photos showed and the bedrooms were more than adequate. The wood stove kept us warm on those cool nights and dried us out after a rainy day of fishing. Our dinner meals were prepared on what looked like a new BBQ and the fully stocked kitchen with gas range had everything we needed to cook side dishes and breakfast. It was very relaxing to sit out on the screened in porch in the evening and look out over the lake. The dock was a bonus for tying up our canoe after fishing in the morning and not having to carry it back down for late afternoon fishing. If an afforable, very clean cottage set in a secluded, quiet location is what you're looking for then I highly recommend trying this one. I certainly will keep this in mind for future vacations."

  • Perfectly stunning!

    "What a glorious time we had at this exceptional mountain house! Perched atop a very steep unpaved driveway ( you do need a 4WD vehicle, or you can walk up and down it like we did-- if you don't enjoy exercise, bring the truck!) this home boasts the most magnificent views-- almost indescribable! Each evening, the clouds settle in to completely obscure the mountain range, then, as the sun rises, the clouds gradually lift, revealing the mountains one by one-- it's like your own magic show. We loved the location near Lancaster, an adorable town with lots of amenities but not touristy. Recommend the delicious food at the Moonbeam Cafe in town, we went there for our one meal out. The home itself wants for nothing. It has a massive wrap around porch with adirondack chairs -- I spent one whole day of our trip on that porch just watching the mountains and meditating. The decor is cozy and mountain-themed, and the owners have thought of everything you might need-- rooms are stocked with all your kitchen amenities, laundry, extra blankets, etc. Lou, the property's builder and caretaker, is lovely and so helpful. A huge storm downed several trees on the property while we were there, leaving us without power, and Lou was at the house within minutes. Fortunately, since the house was so well equipped with candles, flashlights and kerosene lanterns, we didn't mind the outage a bit. A candlelit night in the mountains is our idea of a good time. We were just a couple and our toddler on this trip, but the house could have accommodated several more people without feeling cramped, because there are so many different hangout areas. A portion of the wrap around porch is screened in with doors that lock on each side, so our toddler was able to blissfully set up camp out there with his toys while we cooked meals, etc. Others might care about little tiny things like super slow internet, but we weren't there to be on the computer, so it didn't really faze us and we just used our smartphones when we needed to look up a local park or place we wanted to go. There are plenty of resident carpenter ants, but again, we only had to look beneath the kitchen sink to find extra ant traps, and once we put them out, no more ant parade. This place is absolutely fabulous if you want to have a home base for your NH adventures, or if you never even leave the porch. Blissful. Thanks to Kevin and Lou for taking such thoughtful care of this beautiful home. We can't wait to return."

  • Excellent Experience

    "My family and I frequently rent in Waterville Valley, NH. This by far has been my favorite unit. Located on the first floor it is never too warm nor too cold in the summer. Bathroom is completely clean and plenty of closet and drawer space. You have a great view of the mountains and the kitchen was clean and has everything you will need. Best of all Vicky whom you will rent from is by far the easiest person you will ever rent from. She answers back right away if you have questions and is very considerate and extremely reliable. I am very picky and my wife i even more picky. This honestly was the first unit we have ever rented where she had no complaints. I suggest if you are looking for an amazing location without the hassle of renting from a unreliable owner than this is the place for you. I will be renting from Vicky again. I applaud her for helping make my stay AMAZING! Now if I can only find the elusive Moose which I have not been able to find in all the years I have been going :)."
