Why Jody Troiano chose Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee

This is a treasured family property, handed down through 2 generations

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with Camp Inches because of it's rustic charm, unique layout and peaceful location. I am especially drawn to the proximity of the Wild Meadows Brook to our home. The waterfall into the swimming pool is unique and sets Camp Inches apart. Even with the windows closed, you can hear that river!! It's so soothing and relaxing. The 5 sliding glass doors bring the outdoors right in. I love to walk Wild Meadow (9 acres) with my standard poodle Abby. Most of it is open meadow and the brook abuts the length of that property too. You can explore the Wild Meadow Brook and find swimming holes and little sandy beaches to rest and sunbathe.

Quiet and relaxing home with a comfortable and well set-up property.

  • 5 of 5

The house is tidy and super comfortable. There is a lot of room for kicking back and relaxing: a living room, great room and large porch, all with plenty of seating.

I enjoyed having a nice kitchen with all the appliances I could need. It was great workspace. I did lots of cooking. Oh, and a very nice gas grill, too, just outside the kitchen. It was kind of cool to have several tables for dining options. My favorite was the outdoor dining area on the deck just off our bedroom.

Outdoor areas were all nice, too. Spent lots of time on the decks (front and back) and enjoyed fires in the firepit out back.

The river running along the property was a nice feature. Pretty, soothing. Nice spot for a little hike.

Stayed on property all week, really. Next time? I'm looking forward to exploring the many hiking options.

BTW: Property owner could not have been nicer or more accomodating. Thanks Jodi. Oh, and really friendly neighbors.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review! It was such a pleasure having you as my guests and I'm especially happy to hear you were able to relax! I find the screened in porch by the brook so relaxing and a great place to take a nap! Which is exactly what I did later in the day after you left! That babbling brook is SO soothing!! I get why you hung around the house more than you might have thought you would! I look forward to having you back next. It's guests just like you that make this all worth it to me!!!

Great getaway place

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a very different place. We really enjoyed it. We would definitely go back. The location is a bit remote, but conveniences are pretty close and only about 20 minutes to a larger city. Perfect for a nice quiet time away.

Truly the most relaxing getaway ever experienced!

  • 5 of 5

Completely fabulous experience, everything you hope and dream it could be. Then come to find out it's even more! And that's just being at Camp Inches, then you have the lakes & mountains within an hour away.

Clean, open, beautiful, inviting, and instantly makes you feel at home and say, "Wow, how are we so lucky?"

That brings us to Jody, the reviews you see her mentioned every time. Well my turn, Jody is a gracious, beautiful person! She is so generous to share this unbelievably tranquile, relaxing, part of her life experience with you. When she showed up to greet us I had few words and walked up to her with the biggest hug, how many people do you know can make you feel that comfortable and grateful to in the first minutes of meeting. Thank you so much for sharing your home, and making this one of our favorite memories in our life. We hope to be back soon!

So pack your clothes, toiletries, food, & maybe a pencil... that's the only thing we didn't find!

Camp Inches is a charming retreat hidden away in a corner of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fantastic week at Camp Inches!

This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had...walking in the stream behind the house, hiking through the woods across the street, playing bocce on the lawn, roasting marshmallows around the campfire, eating dinner outside on one of the many decks and curling up on the rocker reading while sipping a cup of hot chocolate in the quiet of the early morning.

Although we really didn't want to travel away from Camp Inches...it is a beautiful well-maintained spacious home that is full of places where you can sit and take in all the beauty that the property has to offer...we did go for a hike at Mount Cardigan and a swim at Newfound Lake. Both places were an easy drive from the property.

Jody was friendly and full of information about things to do in the area. We could tell how much she loves Camp Inches and has put a lot of time into caring for it. We were very comfortable there and had so much space with the many rooms. We especially loved sitting on the screened in back porch, overlooking the swimming hole and waterfall. Magnificent!!! The view from both inside and outside the house is incredible!

We're looking forward to future visits to Camp Inches!
