Family Ski Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time! The location was perfect for us: close to both the nordic ski area and the downhill lodge & tube park. We were 5 kids & 4 adults and appreciated the flexible sleeping arrangements of 3 bedrooms, bunks etc. The drive-in garage was a real bonus for the mountains of gear and groceries that our crew requires. Unlike a previous reviewer, I was glad to see an empty fridge and no left over condiments of dubious age that one sometimes finds in a rental. A little more cupboard space in the kitchen would have been a bonus. We have stayed on Mt Washington in other accommodations before & have always had a good time, but the level of communication, cleanliness and comfort at John & Sue's place will ensure a return visit from our crew.

Great way to bring in 2018

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay over the New Years weekend.

We played games, skied (both cross country and downhill) ate, laughed and really enjoyed ourselves.

John and Sue's Chalet was perfect for our is super convenient to drive in and then just walk across the street to the lift.

If there is anything that I would question it's the fact that there is NOTHiNG left to oil, no spices (there is s&p) the fridge is EMPTY. We have rented many many times from VRBO and most times you do have a few spices and oil and maybe ketchup etc etc, but I guess you know that going in.

We would rent from them again forsure.

Happy 2018!!!

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time on Mt Washington and would highly recommend staying at this mountain retreat! It had everything we needed and more - from kitchen to bathrooms (very convenient to have 3) & comfortable living room and beds. All super clean! Thank you John & Sue-we hope to make it an annual tradition!
