About the Property
5 Bedroom, 4 Bath By A Brook In The Woods With All The Amenities (not A Cabin!)
Rising through the center, a roaring fireplace faces the open-plan main floor. The living room has a large L-shaped couch and two very comfy armchairs. Beyond that is a table and club chairs for card games, framed by towering windows that rise two floors up to the vaulted ceiling and overlook the forest and the brook -- a beautiful view and a source of ample natural light.
The dining table expands to seat ten and also has an expansive view of the surrounding woods. The adjoining kitchen boasts modern fixtures, a full-size fridge, two ovens, a range and a microwave, making it a very functional cooking space. All the cookware you'll need to prepare a feast is here for you -- there's even a fondue set. On this floor you'll also find a full bathroom and a bedroom with two twin beds. Cable TV, a DVD player, a stereo system with surround-sound speakers, wireless internet and firewood are all included.
A floating staircase leads to the upper floor, where you'll find two bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed. One of these bedrooms has its own private deck with a soaring view of the forest. There are two full bathrooms, one with a shower and skylight, the other with an extra-deep soaking tub -- the perfect place to lounge after a long day of hiking or skiing.
The lower floor was added in the 1980s, and they actually lifted the entire house to build it, so it's not a finished basement but an actual floor of the house with windows that overlook the brook. This is a great place for the kids to play -- it's fully carpeted, has cable TV, DVD, and a washer and dryer. There are two bedrooms on this floor, one with a set of bunk beds, the other with a super-comfy queen.
In all of these bedrooms, you'll sleep like a baby. The house is located on a seldom-used street, and nights up here are silent and dark, save for the crickets and the dazzling display of stars. If you're visiting from the city, you'll be amazed at the wonders this does for your slumber.
Our family built this house, and we've taken extremely good care of it. All appliances and fixtures are in excellent condition, and it's impeccably maintained. Should you have any issues during your stay, its owners live nearby. It's a fabulous space that offers a rustic mountain getaway with all the conveniences you could ask for.

The White Mountain National Forest is the most breathtakingly scenic part of New Hampshire, and North Conway is without a doubt the best jumping-off point to experience its excellent hiking, skiing, swimming, and other outdoor activities.
The charming town center runs along a main street lined with restaurants, bars, and shops, past a historic railroad depot that still services the Conway Scenic Railway, which you can ride deep into the mountain passes. The granite cliffs of Cathedral and White Horse ledges can be seen to the west, and Mt. Washington, the tallest mountain on the East Coast, provides a dramatic and towering backdrop to it all.
The stunning natural beauty that surrounds this area is truly without equal in northern New England. In winter, hit the slopes at one of the area's many ski resorts, good for all ability levels. During summer, plunge into Diana's Baths, a secluded series of cascades and crystalline swimming holes, or go tubing or kayaking down the Saco River. Hike the Presidential Range -- from the highest peaks you can see all the way to New York's Adirondack mountains to the west and the shimmering Atlantic coast to the east. Visit in the fall to experience the region's famous, unrivaled display of foliage. Virtually every outdoor activity is at your doorstep: camping, fishing, birdwatching, golf, tennis, show-shoeing -- you name it.
North Conway also has the widest selection of shopping and eating options in the region: everything from antique shops to general stores to brand-name outlets. Sales tax? Not here in New Hampshire!
It's hard to imagine a more scenically beautiful, conveniently located spot than North Conway. The easy-going historic town center is just about a mile from the rental house -- close enough that you could walk there in minutes, but far enough away that you'd never even know it was there while you're lounging on the back deck overlooking the forest and babbling brook. Best of both worlds.
Year Purchased: 1961
About the owner: For the past half century, this house has been shared and cared for by our extended family. We're from Massachusetts and would drive up every weekend, all winter long, to stay here and ski together: brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers and grandparents.
Why the Owner Chose North Conway, Conway, NH, USA:
In 1961, when my grandparents built this place, skiing was still considered a fairly eccentric activity to devote so much time to, but we're very glad they did. Today, it sits in the midst of the region's best ski resorts, as well as a range of spectacular hiking, camping and swimming spots.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's hard to choose one thing about this house that makes it so unique -- the expansive views of its gorgeous surroundings, of course, and its classic modern design. And it's location is unbeatable, set in such a secluded environment yet only a short walk or drive from town and so many outdoor activities.
