Overview

About the property

Estate, 6 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-14)

This unique property, built with site provided materials, is situated at the top of a steep and winding 1/4 mile long driveway. As you ascend you will pass natural rock outcroppings accented with orchards, tiered gardens and hardwood forests. At the end of this exciting drive you will find a rustic but elegant stone, glass and log retreat. This home will invite you to explore the many artistic nuances that lie throughout the property.

You can snuggle up next to the massive stone fireplace and take in the fantastic views of Mt. Washington and neighboring peaks. In the winter months you can ski, sled or snowshoe the trails on the property. In the summer months you can pick your own seasonal berries or walk though the vegetable and flower gardens that are nestled in the landscape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at this piece of New England heaven far surpassed our wildest dreams. The home is spacious and spectacular. There were so many options for sleeping arrangements for an almost-exclusively adult crowd; not the bunkroom arrangement offered by so many other rental properties in ski country. The kitchen was an amazing place to cook, eat, hang out, play cards and games and spend time as a family. The view was too amazing to describe and no pictures I've seen do it justice. The driveway, which was completely covered in several feet of new snow when we first arrived, went from hazard to adventure as the week went by. In the end, the four-wheel drive trips up and down the mountain proved to be one of the most-memorable aspects of the trip. We all said at the end that we didn't want to leave and that it was the "best vacation ever!" Thank you, Susan, for sharing your "dream home" with us for our "dream family vacation!"

Beautiful home for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Susan and Doug's home. Not only we enjoyed the views, beautiful garden, but could not get over all the furniture and art pieces that they have built, made and collected. They are the sweetest people who have poured their heart into building this home. We walked in to find a lovely flower arrangement with fragrant peonies. Thank you, Susan and Doug, for sharing your dream home with us. Will definitely recommend this place to our extended family and friends!

Amazingly unique property

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house and property with plenty of room for our party of eight. The owners were responsive and available to address any issues, but there weren't any. It was a perfect stay and memories were made.

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting

Loved watching the sun rise over Mt. Washington from the kitchen with a cup of coffee. The house was very comfortable, quiet and relaxing. I loved it.

St. Mary's reunion weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our exceptional temporary residence for our 50th high school reunion at the former St. Mary's in the Mountain School.

While 50 years is something to celebrate, this rental was beyond my wildest dreams. The one-of a kind inviting log building, grounds, views of the once-in-a-lifetime SUPERMOON, stunning sunrises and jaw-dropping foliage. Other adjectives include: warm, comfortable, spacious, intriguing, artistic, original, welcoming. Did I mention extremely creative? The owners were gracious, accommodating and friendly. This is a unique adventure in a vacation/escape experience.

Don't miss this opportunity.

Complete Art in this house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with friends last year in October (2015). it was lovely. Susan and her husband had made this house by themselves and its simply full of art. You feel so relaxed just by seeing it. I wish I could stay there more !!

I will def visit this place again.
