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 White Mountains

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.

Heavenly Christmas in the White Mountains!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rarely take the time to review things, but the magical experience I shared with my husband (and our two dogs) over this past Christmas, needed to be documented! We stayed at this fabulous, "Hallmark" fashioned cottage from December 23'rd- December 27'th. Not only were we greeted with homemade Christmas cookies, as were our dogs (canine equivalent), a '"Welcome" sign, Larry's very brief, but immediate personal welcome/tutorial with re: the amenities, the area, etc....; but Larry, Yvonne, their daughter, and son-in-law serenaded us with Christmas carols on Christmas day! They were further accompanied by their actual brood of miniature donkeys!!! LOL- my friends and family STILL think I am making thw whole thing up!!!

I could go on-and-on,.....but the key points are as follows: the cottage was completely immaculate (in fact, my allergies are extremely sensitive to mildew, mold, dust, and cats- but I had absolutely no issue- also, my husband's Asthma had been horrible prior to the trip, but it went away during our stay, plus with the extensive hiking we did); and the pictures truly do not do the cottage justice (right down to the lighted Christmas tree that was set up upon our arrival); Larry and Yvonne were NOT intrusive at all (even though they live down the way- out of view fro the cottage); the whole area is quiet, private, and sceluded- you can walk right out the door, straight to the base of the mountain; we loved the older DVD's that were there (wholesome, substantive, varied), which were nice after exhausting ourselves all day; and on-and-on,.....

There were NO NEGATIVES!!! I kind of did not want to write this glowing review, truth be told, as I hope it is available the next time we rent it...Yet, as nothing is completely perfect, the only slight "imperfections" (depending on your tastes, of course): the wi-fi is slow and hit-or-miss, there really is no TV, and although the shower water quality and pressure were fabulous, I personally really apreciate a detachable shower head.

Thank you, Larry and Yvonne! We cannot wait to return again next year!!!

Cozy, relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Yvonne are wonderful hosts! They have a wealth of local knowledge. Even in winter time this place is awesome. Lots of trails going right from the cottage. Very private, relaxing and stress free place to stay. We are planning to return. Thanks so much!

  • 5 of 5

we spent a great 4 days at the little cabin. The best hosts we have ever had! really took it upon them to make sure we found the perfect hikes for us (and our dog, Roo!). Even though we had terrible weather, it was still a great getaway from boston.

Weekend in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little dog friendly house for a couple looking to get away. Very clean, cozy, and well equipped. Larry was very helpful with suggestions for an easy hike with an amazing view. Two nights was not long enough. Hoping to return in the future!

Perfect Little House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two night stay at the Little House for Presidents Day weekend. The owners were extremely welcoming and a fresh loaf of bread was waiting for us on the kitchen counter when we arrived with the fire stove lit. All the essentials for a cozy night. We spent the weekend skiing at Wildcat Mountain and the owners were nice enough to let us borrow a pair of snowshoes to take along some of the Randolph Mountain club trails.

Very nice weekend away in the mountains!

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.
