Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at the cabin! It's extremely private, with beautiful views. Everything you could need is provided in the cabin and there was plenty of space. The walk to the waterfall is a must!

Charming, cozy cabin in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, despite record low temperatures! We stayed inside most of the time and enjoyed the warmth of the wood stove. Played games and did puzzles. We were able to snowshoe one day and saw the waterfall (frozen solid), which was very cool. This would also be a fantastic area for other seasons. I’m sure the fall foliage is spectacular. The owner was great and totally available for any questions.

What an amazing stay !!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family where so happy with the rental. The cabin was spacious and warm. There was a young moose that visited often . Even though you can not ride ATVs in the valley it was a very short trip ( 20 MINUTES ) to the trail head in Plymouth and the boys rode every day and was nice not hearing the machines at night when they got home .The kitchen is wonderful if you like to cook . Will definitely be back in the Spring!!!!!

Our Cabin Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this cabin. The views were relaxing and the waterfall walk was perfect. We even got to watch a young moose graze around for acouple hours each night. The cabin itself is cute, clean and cozy, we loved it. The owner was very helpful and checked in with us few times during our stay to ensure we were all set. Thanks for everything.

Amazing NH rental

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and our 2 golden retrievers just spent 3 nights here over February vacation and I can't say enough great things about this house. It is the perfect little log cabin in the most beautiful mountain valley. The house was so warm and inviting and the beds were so comfortable. The house had everything we needed and was very clean. The outside wide open spaces were fantastic for the kids and the dogs to run around with no cares in the world. You are off the beaten path so there is no worries about them running out into cars. We skied 2 days at Bretton Woods which was about 45 minutes away, but we had never skied there and it was worth the extra drive. Loon and Waterville Valley are much closer. David was fantastic to work with, so nice and so responsive to all my emails. Thank you very much for such a wonderful place to stay. We are hoping to return in the summer or fall.

We stayed at the cabin during a record cold spell. The cabin is equipped with multiple heat sources which kept us toasty and comfortable even during wind chills of -30 below. We found everything we needed including a comfortable bed and a well appointed kitchen. The owner was great at communicating and even emailed to check on us and give us directions to a nearby scenic waterfall (frozen solid)! Tons of privacy on the dead end dirt road but close enough to everything you could want for recreation and entertainment. Highly recommended!
