Our home is an idyllic four-season getaway from which to take in all the Mt. Washington Valley has to offer. We are close to all the skiing, hiking, watersports, etc. in the Conway area. But despite its proximity to the activities in the valley, our home feels tranquil and is very connected to the water of Big Pea Porridge Pond. There are excellent views of the water from just about anywhere in the house or on the property. From the deck there are just a few stairs to the open yard that ends at our private sandy-bottom beach. We enjoy hiking and skiing, but it is also very easy to just stay and relax.
Big Pea Porridge Pond is about 140 acres, and motorboats are not permitted. We are on the north shore which provides southerly views and close access to Conway. The mornings are quite tranquil and you will enjoy the call of the loons as the mist rises from the lake. In the fall, our home is a great place to enjoy the fall colors; we are only 3.5 miles to the Kancamangus. There is year-round fishing, and the lake contains rainbow trout, small mouth bass, yellow perch, and sunfish. Use any of our five watercraft (2 sailboats, kayak, SUP, and canoe). In the winter, the lake provides skating, cross country skiing, and ice fishing.
The first floor is open concept with excellent views through the oversized sliding glass door, which opens to a deck that spans the back of the house. The connected living room provides views through a large picture window, and the woodstove is nice for quiet, cozy winter evenings. The second floor sitting area provides excellent views through a picture window and has access to a second floor deck. Sleeping arrangements are provided by a first floor bedroom with a queen bed; and on the second floor a king bedroom and a bunkroom with two sets of twin bunks. There is also a queen pull-out couch in the upstairs sitting area. If you filled all of these you might sleep 10, but at 1500 sq ft, we feel eight would be more comfortable.
From the back deck or anywhere in the yard you can comfortably watch your family and friends playing on or in the water. Varied features we also hope you will enjoy: a hammock, blueberry bushes, beach toys, floats, puzzles, games, WiFi, fire-ring, gas Weber grill, etc.
