About the property

3 bedroom, 1.5 Bath Mountain Home With Seasonal Lake/Mountain Views

You're gonna love this place. It's a gorgeous, clean, well-maintained, family-oriented 3 bedroom chalet in the Eidelweiss district of Madison, NH, just minutes from North Conway and White Mountain National Forrest.

Getting to this high-altitude cabin is half the fun. You literally feel your ears popping from the altitude as you look out over Mount Chocura on the left and Pea Porridge Pond on the right. You know you're in the mountains.

Although you're in the heart of the white mountains, you won't need to leave behind all the creature comforts of home. The cabin comes fully equipped: air conditioning, high-speed Wifi access, a printer, wood-burning stove (in addition to regular heat), washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, range, cable TV with HBO and DVD/Blue Ray player and DVR and Netflix, Keurig coffee maker, and the best part... a 2nd living room/den so the adults can enjoy some peace and quiet in the great room while the kids do their thing downstairs in the den (which also serves as the 4th bedroom). There is also a propane fire pit on the deck.

Once there, take a walk back down the hill to the beach at Pea Porridge Pond where, depending on the season, you can go swimming, kayaking (THE HOUSE COMES WITH TWO KAYAKS AND A PADDLE BOARD FOR YOUR UNLIMITED USE!), or ice skating (bring your own skates).

Also, there are enough nearby attractions to keep a family busy all summer. My favorite is the Kangamangus Highway, 5 minutes away, with its hiking/snowshoeing/cross country skiing trails, covered bridges, waterfalls, and scenic overlooks. You can also go downhill skiing at King Pine (15 minutes away), Cranmore (25 minutes), or Attitash/Bear Peak (30 minutes). Right down the road is a Saco River Canoe Company which leads tubing/kayaking/canoeing trips down the Swift River. Snowmobile rentals are nearby. There's even a year-round dogsledding place.

Lousy weather? Don't care for the outdoors? Go shopping at the factory outlets in North Conway (10 minutes away), go to the movies, or better yet, check out one the Mount Washington Valley's three theater companies. Or how about the railroad museum? Or Tours of Tuckerman's Brew Company?

Have little kids? Take 'em to Santa's Village or Storyland or even the MWV Children's Museum. Have older rambunctious kids who are tired of swimming? How about Monkey Trunks High Rope & Zipline Adventure Park, or take a ride on the Cog Railway, or drive the car up the Mount Washington Auto Road, or take the Snow Cat to the near-top in the winter. (Or believe it or not, hiking up the mountain is not as hard as you think.) Are there mini-golfers in the family? With three nearby mini-golf courses, the MWV is the veritable Hilton Head of min-golf.

The bottom line is that there is so much to do in this area, not even the most hard-to-please, pain-in-the-neck kids will be bored.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me. I try to respond to all inquiries the same day. I couldn't be happier with this place and I am excited to have others have the opportunity to enjoy it as much as my family, friends, and I have. -Keith

About Keith McCarthy

I am a school-teacher in Massachusetts. I bought this place so my family, friends and I would have a place to gather and have fun together in the winter and summer. So far, I couldn't be happier with it.

Keith McCarthy purchased this chalet in 2014

It was a perfect fit for us and was exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than adequate; clean, comfortable, cozy but with room to spread out, all the amenities WiFi, cable, laundry, snow removal. The location on the mountain side is beautiful and close enough to stores, restaurants and recreation. The owner is responsive and easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 week stay!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home tucked away from all the hustle and bustle but close enough to check it all out. The home was spacious, clean and offered more than what I expected. Great communication with the owner who was kind enough to check in to see how we were doing. The nearby beaches were a joy along with the use of the kayaks. Thinking about a winter stay as I didn't realize there were so many ski mountains nearby. Top notch!

We rented this cabin for my sister's birthday. It was a group of 10 friends. The weather was kinda cappy (it rain all weekend) but we stI'll had a amazing time. It's very spacious where everyone had enough space and we did not feel on top of each other. We had a wonderful time. Will be deff going back someday. Recommended 10000%

Very spacey, and loved the mood the house gave out

  • 5 of 5

Although there's not much to do around the place. (Unless you drive to the surrounding cities.) There's plenty of beds, and all very comfortable. Place was clean, and had a very spacious kitchen for cooking. Only thing was we couldn't get to the cabin for a while because our car couldn't go up the hell due to it being very very Icey. But that's not there fault, other then that 5 stars!
