Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

A private, newly renovated cottage surrounded by trees, mountain stream, fields, and spectacular view of the Presidentials. Abundant wildlife out the windows. Not uncommon to have a moose or bear walk by. You'll enjoy comfortable, restful nights in the serene intimate bedroom on quality bedding, including down and cotton. The adjoining bath provides a shower, fluffy towels, and a hair dryer. Unique architectural details throughout were added to create a cozy environment. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare simple or elegant meals with adjoining dining and spacious living areas. A collection of local guidebooks, maps and reading materials are provided. We've also compiled a list of our favorite things to do in the area, including hikes, dining, and day trips. Many windows let in natural light, sounds, and clean mountain air. There is a small adjoining deck to sit and have your morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The adjoining field is a great place for evening stargazing, a campfire, or a picnic under the maple tree with a spectacular view of Mts. Madison & Adams.. Fall foliage is breathtaking, and in winter, snowshoeing and cross country ski trails start right out the front door. Five major downhill ski areas are within an hour's drive. Many amentities within 5 - 60 minute drive. Day trips can include a shopping trip to North Conway, a scenic trip up the Mount Washington Auto Road, canoeing on the beautiful Androscoggin River, adventurous hikes up Mount Madison or Mount Adams, or leisurely hikes on the hundreds of miles of trails in the White Mountain National Forest or the Randolph area maintained by the Randolph Mountain Club. Clear, cool mountain pools nearby for swimming.

About Larry Jenkins

We have spent the past 36 years creating a self sustained lifestyle. Everything is owner designed and built, including the buildings, landscaping and gardens. We are both retired Larry, a former woodworker, and Yvonne a librarian. We enjoy our beautiful mountain setting and are excited to share it with you.

Larry Jenkins purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Larry Jenkins chose Randolph

This cottage was built and used as an apartment while we were constructing our larger home on the same property, which was chosen because of the spectacular views of the Northern Presidentials. Our dream of converting it into a vacation rental is now complete.

What makes this cottage unique

The property allows you to get away and yet be close enough to everything you need. The small town setting is friendly, welcoming, and includes many seasonal acitivities without the congestion of typical tourist destinations.

A perfect snowy April weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the cottage during a snowy mid-April weekend. Larry greeted us with a wealth of information about hiking trails, shopping, and restaurants in the area. He invited us to explore the property, and we immediately felt welcomed.

The house is just out of the way enough of busy roads to be quiet and peaceful, yet it is also close and convenient to area attractions and restaurants. The home is also within walking distance to hiking trails, which we look forward to exploring more on a less snow-filled visit.

We were less than an hour's drive to all of the places we wanted to visit: Littleton for cute shops and antiques (especially Just L Modern Antiques), Bethlehem for antiques and a great used bookstore (Beannacht Books), and the Mt. Washington Hotel. We also had a wonderful time just enjoying the warmth of the cottage, having a meal, and watching movies in the cozy living room.

The cottage was equipped with everything we needed to make full dinners and breakfasts. We loved the comfortable bedroom and warm fireplace at night. We appreciated the carport for parking our small SUV. To top it all off, the view from the cottage is stunning and unforgettable. This is a perfect place to get back in touch with nature and with yourself.

We thank Larry and Yvonne (and Opal!) for sharing their property with us, and we look forward to coming back again.

Lovely rental with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

It was just what the doctor ordered. A restful stay that wasn't long enough. The view was awesome. The cottage had all the amenities we needed and more. it was clean, cozy and relaxing. Plenty of peace and quiet, walking trails and things to see. Shopping and restaurants are located only a few miles away which was convenient when supplies are needed. Truly a vacation spot to revisit frequently. Larry and Yvonne are great hosts.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a weekend in December and enjoyed exploring the Whites and staying in this cozy cottage. The cottage was thoughtfully decorated, clean, and outfitted with all the necessities. The property and view are beautiful and secluded. Our host Larry was also very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to go back for a return visit!

Map

Since renting our property several years ago I marvel at the number of guests that come seeking refuge from the world beyond Puggy Huddle Lane. Many find it a retreat from their normal lives. Any time of year the cottage is super insulated both warm and quiet so you can discover the peace that comes with silence. In the normal sense of the word, "attraction" it seems our guests are drawn to us as much by the chaos in their own lives as by the quiet we offer. The North Country, as we know ourselves, travels at a slower pace than anywhere else I know. This is most true in the off season when tourists are fewer and further in between but it's also true during peak tourist periods relatively speaking compared with tourist destinations like the "Lakes Region" or the "Mount Washington Valley" .We love our community, Randolph; The spirit of the mountains lives here and has long heritage. There are well over 100 miles of trails in Randolph, The second, third and fifth highest peaks in New England are located in Randolph. (Adams, Jefferson and Madison) Some of our guests spend their time hiking while others come with that intention but never cross the threshold finding the serenity they've come for lives in the cottage itself.

In 2017 we installed a solar tracker which produces 100% of our electric needs. It compliments our philosophical orientation of living as self sufficiently as possible. We've been organic gardeners for about 40 years with a year round greenhouse in which we raise much of the food that we eat.
