About Rich Proto
My wife Ann and I live in Massachusetts with our two daughters. We love to travel and vacation, though its not always possible with four busy schedules. Our vacation homes in New Hampshire and Maine allow us to get away on a moments notice. We hope our guests will enjoy them as much as we do!
Rich Proto purchased this House in 2007
Why Rich Proto chose Alexandria
On our way to see this property for the first time in August 2007, we drove up West Shore Drive past Newfound Lake and were just amazed at the beauty of the lake and surrounding area. We arrived to to see the quintessential New Hampshire cabin with its natural wood siding, beamed ceilings, knotty pine walls, country kitchen, handmade tapestries and quilts, and an artist's touch throughout.

Nice Ski Chalet Experiance :-)
We had a relaxing visit.
Short drive to Ragged Mt
very nice time - Thank you!
Clean spacious family friendly home
We loved this home! It was very clean, warm, and welcoming. The top floor was loaded with very comfortable beds that had nice linens. The kitchen was fully equipped and included nice natural Iighr with mountain views. The main floor has a large table that seats ten and a good size bathroom/ bedroom. The bottom floor was cozy once we got the wood stove going- this is where the living room and tv are. We loved being able to bring out dogs too. We will def stay here again! Possibly in the summertime also. Wish list would be two cozy reading/ mountain viewing / coffee chairs by the window in the kitchen vs such a long table ...We had our family of five and two dogs and had plenty of room! Great find! Thank you for a great family weekend!
We would stay again
Great place to stay. There is plenty of room. We were all very comfortable. All the basic necessities were available. We will definitely stay again. Our only complain (not a huge deal unless someone is reliant on the extra bed) is the Fulton’s weren’t too comfortable. We watched movies down stairs but for that purpose, it was fine. Thank you SO much for allowing us to stay! We truly enjoyed ourselves.
Great place, close to everything we needed. We saw deer and a black bear! It was an awesome vacation
The house and location was awesome. Everything in the house was easy to find. Directions to the house are great. Neighbors were very nice. The ride to Wellington state park on newfound lake was less than ten minutes. Couldn't ask for a better vacation. We will return in the future.
This was our second time staying at this property. Perfect location for our family being right on the snowmobile trails and close to ragged Mountain. House has everything we need and is always clean and neat. Looking forward to staying here again
Nice place, well taken care of
We had a great time staying up here during our annual ice fishing trip
