Other Reviewers Spot On - FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

First, thank you, Kristen, for allowing us to use your home. Second, thank you, previous reviewers, for your spot on description of this home. I always base my selection of vacation rentals on the reviews; once again they were so true!

Beautiful decor, clean, spacious, private road, and magnificent views of the mountains and Pemi River. Working with the homeowner was also a pleasant experience.

You are truly only about a1/2 hour away from it all, Franconia Notch, Waterville Valley, the Kangamangus Highway and many other great vacation activities.

The perfect starting point for day trips, and the perfect ending point for "feeling at home and relaxing".

Lovely house in a beautiful location with an excellent kitchen

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed here during a hiking trip up Mt. Moosilauke. We loved cooking shared meals in the well-appointed kitchen, hanging out in the spacious open living area, and taking a look at the view from the back porch. The house is very comfortable. Beds are great, showers are great, our stay was perfect. Great place to disconnect and relax!

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I have visited this part of New Hampshire many times but this was by far the best accommodations. The views from this beautiful house were breathtaking. The home was spacious, very clean, comfortable and perfectly suited to a large family or just the two of us. Hope to return next summer or fall. Thanks Kristin!

Excellent property and great value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend getaway and had a phenomenal time. The house and location were great and our experience of the fall colors of New England was wonderful.

The house has a great river view and there's plenty of room to relax and enjoy yourself. Property is in close proximity to local hiking and outdoor activities.

The owners was quick to communicate with and they made themselves available to answer our questions promptly. Overall one of the best VRBO stays we've had to date.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

What a great find! Close to hiking, skiing and misc touristy things to do! We arrived after dark and were thrilled to wake up to the view of the river- this house is built for this view! A great open layout, we were surprised at how much space there was! I will definitely be back.

We just returned from our stay and have nothing but great things to say about the property. First, the location was perfect for us, second, the house was clean and ready for our arrival, third, the owner responded very quickly to the one concern we had and things resolved immediately. Can't wait to visit again!
