Why Steven FARRELL chose White Mountains

Eaton remains an unspoiled nature paradise. Our pristine lakeside site nestled in a chain of lakes well off but close to the beaten path from Boston to Jackson & Northern Presidentials was an ideal location to build a vintage 1920s mini version of a grand old NH guest lodge.

Easy access for arrival and departure avoids all traffic and noise polution from the densly traveled N. Conway commercial mecca 10 miles to our north.

What makes this lodge unique

Tranquility, rest, relaxation, campfire, sunsets, outside lakeview dining, moonlight swims and walks, listening to the brook, music, visits & sharing with friends and family.

A Tradition of Great Visits to Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

For the fifth consecutive summer, we have rented Tranquility Lodge for our family (Lauren and I are the grandparents, our two daughters and spouses, and their two children each for a total of 10). One family takes the lower floor, we are on the ground floor, and the other family is in the loft. We come back because the Lodge loves up to its name and is a recreational retreat for the whole family. We use the beach at Crystal Lake, the kayaks and canoe on Long Pond, and the lawn and gardens for games, campfires, and relaxation. The owner is totally responsible and trustworthy. For example, this year we had a small hitch with the water system and the owner appeared within hours to fix it. Our family has come to regard Tranquility Lodge as our summer home for a week. Our grandkids still love Storyland, and we also do blueberry picking, hikes up Foss Mountain, and in August, great viewing of the meteor showers! The lodge is well-appointed and served our family of 10 very well with all the kitchen appliances, etc. that we needed to move right in and set up housekeeping. It is our plan to continue this tradition as long as the families can travel together.

Relaxing Family Winter getaway at Tranquility Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing weekend at Tranquility Lodge. Many years ago my parents had a little chalet in Eaton, so when we found this place it was an opportunity for our family to take a nostalgic trip back in time to a place we all loved. This house is gorgeous and, though the photos on website are great, the place is even larger and more beautiful in person. We had three generations staying there; there was plenty of room for all 12 people to gather in front of the stone fire each evening. The open concept allowed for us to feel like we were all together yet have our own space. From the well appointed kitchen to the very large dining table and comfy sitting room, we were all comfortable cooking great meals and relaxing together. We took turns pulling the little ones (and Grandma) up and down the driveway on sleds, and also found a decent sledding hill down the road a bit. In the evening the kids were cozy and warm inside playing board games around the table with their cousins while the adults decompressd with a bottle of wine and marveled at the architecture. We verntured into town once to go on a sleigh ride...then raced right back to our winter haven. Not one person even attempted to turn on the television. A big thank you to the owners for sharing your beautiful lodge with us. We'll be back!

Great spot for a family get together!

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Tranquility Lodge to have a long weekend with my husband's family. There were 6 adults and 2 children. Tranquility Lodge was a perfect fit for us. Plenty of room and a great natural feel. It's close enough to town for shopping or night out if wanted. Unfortunately, it rained most of the time we were there, but it was relaxing to sit by the beautiful fireplace playing games or reading. Everything was provided to cook big meals at the lodge. We did go horseback riding near by and visited Mount Washington. Lots of activities to do in the area. We would choose it again for a family get together.

Charming & rustic - You will love it!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a rustic cabin feel with updated appliances and bathroom fixtures this is your place. This home is very clean and well maintained with lovely antique/country furnishings. The owners created a truely warm and inviting place. The decor was just perfect. There was plenty of space for all 8 adults and one baby. The central fieldstone fireplace made the evening gatherings a joy. The pond is small and pretty with the fall foliage. There is a canoe available as stated. The ride to NorthConway was about 15 minutes. It is a lovely scenic ride. The Kangamangus highway was not too far either and so this is s perfect place to stay if you'd like to take in some hiking trails. After a day of sightseeing we cooked our dinners at the lodge which was filled with all cookware and dinnerware that you would need. We all just loved this place. If you choose this spot, treat it gently so that it is in the same wonderful condition when I return some day! I would definately recommend this property to friends.

Summer Vacation in NH

  • 4 of 5

Nice, well kept vacation rental in Eaton, NH. My wife and I rented Tranquility Lodge with my in-laws and 3 kids. We enjoyed spending early mornings fishing on the pond (we found large chain pickerel, bass, yellow perch & sunnies), campfires each night under a sky filled with brilliant stars and the milky way, breakfasts and dinners prepared in the well appointed kitchen, and relaxing on the back porch or the swing near the lake. A kid friendly rental.

Nearby, we enjoyed swimming in Crystal Lake ("crystal" clear water), hiking up Foss Mt. (great panoramic 360 degree view), kids enjoyed visiting the Alpaca Farm in Eaton, my father in law and I enjoyed sporting clays at Green Mt. Shooting Preserve (boys liked driving the golf carts between stations), biking on local roads (better to get off 153 for biking excursions), driving up the Mt. Washington Auto Road (yikes), picnicking at Bretton Woods and riding the free chairlift for a view and drink at the top, "water sliding" and swimming at Jackson Falls, Hiking to Thompson Brooks Falls at Wildcat Mountain, outlets in North Conway,and exploring all there is to see in the White Mountains.

We've rented many homes, so here's the pros and cons -

PROS: nice home, nice surrounding property, Long Pond is nice, great stars, campfires & s'mores, well appointed kitchen, Crystal Lake pass (swimming here is really nice), off the beaten track enough yet 25 minutes to groceries, outlets, etc.

CONS: no air conditioning (not hot the week we attended or in evenings but my mother-in-law is addicted), no use of laundry facilities for guests (for families with kids, laundry is a daily routine and makes packing easier), Route 153 runs along Long Pond so occasional cars can be seen / heard from the fire pit and lake.

Note: if you rent this home, the owner requests all deposits and payments be sent to a P.O. Box and the actual home address cannot be located on Mapquest or similar.

This put us off a bit when arranging a vacation via the internet. Also, our minor change to the rental agreement re: final payment was 'ignored' (we changed final payment due date to 2 weeks before our arrival as opposed to 2 months) and despite our initialing this clearly (1st page of agreement) and our deposit being cashed we were advised we missed our final payment... This was a "first" for us and for the owner and after a long conversation on the telephone we resolved. House exists and it is a very nice place to vacation! Rent w/ confidence.

Winter Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at the Tranquility Lodge for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Our group consisted of 3 couples and all of our children (ages 4 months to 8yrs). The pictures actually do this place justice, unlike some of the other properties. The owners were very informative and ensured our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The property has a genuine Great Outdoors feel to it. Only 10 minutes from N. Conway, we enjoyed tubing at Cranmore and the indoor water park at Kahuna Laguna. If the snow conditions were a little better, we would have spent some time skiing at King Pine (only 2 minutes away). Great spot.
