100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Modern layout with great furnishings, right next to the river
Recently renovated house, well organized and stocked with everything we needed. Made good use of the kitchen to cook dinner every night of our 4 night stay, not to mention the indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pit. Traffic from the road is not intrusive and the back patio is perfect for breakfast and watching the river flow by (if you can get out of the very comfortable bed).
Excellent Value, Beautiful Location and Interior, Awesome Property Owners
My friends and I (four altogether) visited towards the end of April and had a wonderful experience. Sean and Heath are experts at what they do. We had no issues with accommodations and clear instructions for everything. Plenty of towels, dishware, and anything else you could think of are provided. The grill was nice and clean along with everything else. The bathroom is nice and water pressure is good enough. The washer and dryer were great, I actually would have brought less clothes if I knew how nice their setup was. Even though it's on a main road, we had no issues with sound. The river outback is actually lovely to listen to and incredibly scenic. The fireplace is large and well maintained.
We hiked at Dianna's Baths and Arethusa Falls. Both were amazing. I also recommend Kancamagus Highway if the skies are clear. There's a nice shopping town nearby with general stores, cafes, a park, and more. We were afraid that the nearest grocery store would be remote, but there is one within 10 minutes and a Walmart within 15, if I remember correctly. Not inconvenient in any case.
Nitpicking, I could see how no lock on the bathroom door could become an issue. It wasn't for us, but if we were traveling with more reckless people it could be. The only source of annoyance throughout the stay was the electric stove/oven. Maybe we just aren't fans of electric ovens in general (who is...?), but we needed to set it to ~50 degrees higher than instructions most times and leave food in for far longer than prescribed. Same idea for the stove top, trying to get food ready for the same time was next to impossible for us. I recommend taking advantage of the microwave's "Keep Warm" feature. The only supply missing from the house that would have been nice was sandwich bags or ziploc bags for leftover foodstuff and hiking/road trip snacks. Really though, just bring those if you think you would use them.
All in all, we had an excellent experience and would not hesitate to stay here again! We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of activities in the area and the quality of the house. Thank you, Sean and Heath!
Thank you very much Tyler! We weren't aware there was no lock plate on the bathroom door so I appreciate you mentioning it. There is one now!
Modern, sleek, immaculate, convenient location.
Beautiful house with great views out the back with sunshine streaming in the windows (sorry, no moose sighting from the water on the property. At least 8 ski areas within an hour’s drive (including Sunday River, ME). Everything new & working. Fans in each BR used to help block noise (traffic, snoring!). Plenty of towels & paper products. The owners thought of everything.
The house was impeccably clean, well stocked, warm and inviting. Loved how bright the living area is. Although we didn't cook there, it looked like there were tons of dishes and utensils for just about anything you could think of. The beds were incredibly comfortable. The one tiny thing I wish I had was a suitcase stand, as there was no dresser in the room with the queen bed. (It would've made searching through my suitcase a bit easier.) Would love to experience this place in warm weather, as the river is close by in the back yard and the deck was beautiful.
Great 2 night stay
Perfect house and location for two couples celebrating a low key New Years Eve. Had everything needed to make a dinner at home, and plenty of places to go around for a drink.
Very nice home!
Our stay exceeded my expectations. The house was very comfortable and clean. The owners were for quick to respond on any issue. The backyard was nice and large, and the deck is great. The location is great for visiting the nearby areas. We had no complaints and I would highly recommend this house!
