Such a beautiful home and plenty of room for our family reunion! Terry was quick to respond to emails and Joe couldn't have been more helpful while we were there. Thank you for the memories! :)

Great place to hang with friends and family!!

  • 5 of 5

Love the had so much detail and charm! Beds comfy, everything clean, plenty of parking. Loved having such a large kitchen to make one tripping over each other! But best of all was back room and deck where we all could hang out eat, play games and just be together. So close to multiple lakes so we were also able to enjoy some boating! Lot of memories made with my large group of friends for our annual get together!!

Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a large, multi-generational group and this house was just the right spot. On one rainy day, the kids were able to run through the house while the adults could chat undisturbed. On a sunny day the deck, grill and firepit were spot on. Every room having its own bathroom was wonderful. Joe was a helpful host, always ready to attend and even let us pick veggies from his garden! Other: Catering from the Appleseed Restaurant nearby was excellent, and the covered bridge is just a short walk from the inn. Lake Sunapee is a 10 min drive. Highly recommended!

Beautiful property and a perfect house for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for big groups with every bedroom having a dedicated bathroom (most are ensuite). We had a family camp there and used the yard for multiple yard games, made s'mores in the fire pit, and had a great BBQ out on the back deck. The kitchen is very large making it easy to prepare meals for many people and the dining room area can comfortable seat 11-15 people. The owner, Joe, was awesome! He was attentive to everything that we could have needed and went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. I would highly recommend staying here!

Excellent for family reunions

  • 5 of 5

This home was so perfect; we were able to fit our family comfortably. The home is beautifully furnished with a large, well appointed kitchen. Joe was so good to work with and Terry responded quickly to our questions. The grounds are beautiful with flower boxes around the porches and flowers everywhere. It was close to so many things we wanted to do and see. I highly recommend this lovely home. Leah from North Ogden, Utah
