It has been a long winter for many but now as the weather gets warmer it is time to think about relaxing at the beautiful Presidential View House.

The sunrise is just amazing and a wonderful way to start your day at this lovely home. It is hand created Timber Frame and the woodword is just stunning. Relax in the cozy Great Room and if it is chilly, make a roaring fire. The kitchen is fully equipped and the pantry is stocked for your recipe making. After a sound sleep in your bedroom it is time to enjoy the incredible Town of Bethlehem or Littleton. Go for a beautiful hike, take a yoga class, swim in the neighboring stream or just grab your book to read on the deck. Explore the antique shops downtown, have an outdoor lunch or see what is happening at the historic Colonial Theatre. In close by historic Sugar Hill, go have pancakes at Pollys, check out the Garnet Hill outlet store, or explore the Sampler for gifts and samples of their incredible offerings.

Why Kate and Gary Pardee chose Whitefield
My husband and I bought these 13 acres when we were looking for to buy in this amazing area. When we drove up to look at the land we were spellbounded by the incredible views of the Presidential range. This had to be the place to build our home.

Presidential Views Indeed!
My family had the pleasure of staying at this property for a week in February. We invited our good friends to join us. The house was very comfortably and held 4 adults and 4 kids with plenty of room to spare. We didn't even make use of the upper loft area. Some of the highlights for us:
The View - The house sits up on the side of a hill providing an incredible view of the presidential mountains. Each morning I made sure to get up before the sun so I could take in the sunrise which peaks right over the mountains directly out the front windows. Great way to start the day.
Location - I liked being a little more secluded away from the bustle of the ski areas. It was about a 20 minute drive to either Bretton Woods or Cannon and both drives were beautiful. The property is a very short walk away from the Ammonoosuc River. My kids and I enjoyed our short "hikes" down and along the river and over the 1 lane bridge. Being close to Littleton was very convenient as well. We got our groceries there and took advantage of Main St for dinner at Chang Tai (excellent) as well as a visit to the Chutters for candy.
Amenities - The fireplace is awesome! We ended each ski day with an Apre Ski on the couches in front of the fire with snacks and beverages. The fireplace really warms the place up quickly. I really appreciated the well stocked firewood in the garage. The 2 bedrooms were great for the adults, and the lower bedroom with the bunk beds gave the kids a great play/sleeping area they could call their own. The kitchen area had everything we needed to cook most of our meals on site. Although we didn't need it, I was impressed to see the dual car, high bay garage that we could have stored the cars (even with our car toppers) if we needed to get the vehicles out of the snow.
Owners - We got very quick replies to our booking as well as to emails with a few questions I had. I also received a very detailed document describing the house and providing area recommendations which I found very helpful.
One thing worth noting is that the road up and driveway are fairly steep. With some fresh snow before we arrived we found it quite challenging to navigate with our front wheel drive vehicle. Our guests had 4 wheel drive and had no issues. Just something to be aware of.
Overall I'd highly recommend this property. Great ski vacation location and I imagine it would be equally as enjoyable in warm weather, especially to take advantage of that incredible deck.
Thank you so much for this awesome review Jeremy. We do appreciate hearing great feedback and we hope you visit us again. Thank you again for taking the time to write this and we hope you got great pictures too to capture all.of your memories of your trip.
Great place to stay
Beautiful place, views and area. Snowmobile trails 1/4 mile down the road, we road out of the driveway. Satellite internet is fast and Bose radio system made for great back round music. Plenty of room, use of the garage to get your car out of the cold a plus. Plenty of firewood for the awesome fire place and there is even wood for an outdoor fire pit. Well worth the stay and would recommend to anyone.
Thank you Doug. Your a great guest too. We appreciate you visiting. Please come back to Presidential View House again.

Lovely view, great fireplace, and very cute decor!
We had a great friend-reunion weekend at Kate and Gary's NH house this weekend. The house is beautiful and the view of the mountains is lovely. We had a lot of fun skiing at Cannon despite it being a little icy - perfect mountain for a very mixed skill level group. The only hiccup with our stay was the gas tank being empty when we arrived, but the owners were great about getting it filled right away so we had heat and hot water within a matter of hours. As far as improvement ideas go, I think the loft would be perfect for a ping pong/ air hockey / pool table, and some more bunk beds could definitely fit in downstairs or in the loft. A hot tub would be a great addition as well. We had a lovely weekend with great company - played lots of board games by the fire at night and skied ourselves sore all day. Thanks for having us!
Thank you for your review, being so accommodating and please visit us again.

Great views and lovely house!
A group of friends and I stayed here this past New Year's weekend (total of 5 adults) and it was great. The house was beautiful and everything was in place just as Kate had said it would be. Kate was fantastic at responding to issues quickly and effectively (we didn't have internet because of the weather, which wasn't an "issue" until football Sunday haha). The fireplace was amazing and used all weekend long due to the sub zero temps that weekend (PLENTY of wood stockpiled in the garage). We had enough space to relax given that we weren't venturing out to the nearby mountains to hit the slopes.
The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is that I wouldn't really call this a 3 bedroom house. There were enough beds for 6 people (two queens and a bunk bed) so sleeping room wasn't a problem. The main upstairs living area has the two bedrooms, but the downstairs room was more of an extra living space (couch, TV, full bathroom) with a set of bunk beds. There was no door to this downstairs room, so you can easily hear what's going on in the main living area up the stairs (only problematic if you're the first to bed or last to wake up). Given that set-up, the house would probably be better for 4 adults accompanied with children rather than more adults.
But overall, we had a great time and would definitely consider going back - hopefully in warmer months so we can enjoy the beautiful views from the deck!
Thank you so much for your great review and it was a delight working with you too. We hope you come back in the warmer months. As per your suggestion regarding "what will call the Bunk Room" we do get many families with children. In the winter ski months though we also get groups who want to come with more friends. We are honest that this room is open and that even "grown-ups" will have to sleep in bunk beds. I imagine there are a lot of Drawing of Straws. HA! We also have the loft but don't promote that because when the beautiful stone fireplace is ablaze, it is simply too hot. Some believe staying with a big group is part of the whole experience of a good ole fashioned ski trip. We never book more than eight people though even when they ask for more friends to stay.
Thank you again and Happy New Year.
