Come and experience the most beautiful section of western New Hampshire! Newly renovated 3 Bedroom family home features beautiful Connecticut River Valley views, and private access to 150 feet of river frontage for all-day fishing and kayaking. While the home is situated directly on the Connecticut River, the private access requires a short walk down a switchback trail to the landing area.

The house features a brand new gourmet kitchen with island bar, and a large dining table for casual dining and card games.

Master bedroom with fireplace has a Queen bed and en suite bathroom. Second Bedroom on main floor has two twin beds. Third bedroom upstairs has 3 twins and adjacent loft with futon. Loft can also be used for kids play area or quiet reading. Second full bath is on the main level.

The house is located directly on the Connecticut River with 2 kayaks and a canoe provided for your use. Light fishing gear and safety equipment is a also provided. You will be sure to catch some perch and sunfish and if you're lucky enough, pike or walleye! Larger boats are available for rent at Fairlee Marine in Fairlee, VT.

Hikers will enjoy the proximity to the Appalachian Trail. The closest AT trailheads are Glencliff Trail to summit Mt. Moosilauke (15 mi. NE) and Mt. Cube Trail to summit Mt. Cube (19 miles SE). Many other local hikes off the AT are close by, including Wright's Mountain in Bradford Town Forest (10 mi W) and Black Mountain in North Haverhill (10 mi N)

In addition to the river, there is swimming at Piermont Pool, an old-fashioned waterhole fed from mountain streams. There is also a public beach with swimming at nearby Indian Pond.

Golfers can play a scenic 9-hole Public course in Bradford, VT or an 18-hole lakeside course at Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee.

For the truly adventurous, scenic hot air balloon rides are offered at Post Mills Airport in Thetford, VT.

Enjoy a campfire with s'mores in our yard, or sit by the outdoor chiminea with a warm drink. On a clear night , you can stargaze or catch fireflies.

In the summer, there are many local stands to get fresh produce, farm cheese and country meats. We love Peaked Moon in the summer and Indian Corn Mill in the Fall. Just a short drive away, you can pick your own apples and kids can pet the animals at Windy Ridge. They also have a Cider House cafe and wine tasting! In addition, several family owned restaurants feature Farm-to-Table style menus, such as Ariana's in Orford. Polly's Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill has been serving up homemade breakfast to New Hampshire's White Mountain visitors for over 75 years. Newly renovated and now open year- round, they offer incredible views and unbeatable meals.

Check out the Old Church Theater in Bradford for local summer stage shows. You can also relive your youth at the Fairlee Drive in - featuring first run double features all summer long! Other attractions include gold-panning in the Ammonoosuc River, visiting the New England covered bridges ( Swiftwater, Bath, Woodsville), looking for Lost River in Woodstock, or taking the kids to Clark's Trading Post in Lincoln.

Shoppers will enjoy Farm-Way, Copeland Furniture Factory Store, The Round Barn Shoppe and many other local stores featuring the crafts and handiwork of the Upper Valley, such as North of the Falls.

Annual events nearby include Fall Leaf Peeping, Annual Wild Game Supper, Connecticut Valley Bradford Fair, Bath Street Dance, Paddle the Border, North Haverhill Fair, 41st Annual Orford Flea Market and Antique Fair.

For winter guests, Piermont is uniquely central to many of the best east coast ski areas. In under an hour, you can be on the big mountain slopes of Bretton Woods, Loon and Cannon in NH, as well as the smaller family hills such as Dartmouth and Whaleback. Ski Killington and Stowe VT and be back in time to enjoy our wood-fired sauna. The private river access directly behind the house is known for some of the best ice fishing in the area.

Visitors to Piermont River House will be sure to spot some local wildlife including deer, turkeys, bald eagles, ducks, geese and many varieties of songbirds.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Piermont! The home is completely secluded and fully stocked with everything you could need for fun in NH and VT. We enjoyed kayaking via the private river access, fishing with the provided gear and hiking in the area with our dog. The home is wonderful and includes so many great little touches. Deb provided fantastic communication and was incredibly accommodating. We hope to come back in the future!

Best of both worlds - relaxing adventure!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable setting with water adventures down the private backyard trail to the river. House was clean, updated, and nicely stocked with little extras (smores supplies! coffee, apple cider!). Owner was very nice, attentive, and accessible. The website description of this house is 100% correct.

This house really has everything you need to have a great NH vacation!

I cant wait to come back!

Top Notch River House

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a week and the house is as described. The house was immaculate and has plenty of "extras" for those with kids. The kitchen was sensational as well as the blueberries that we were encouraged and able to pick onsite. There are plenty of toys, games and additional items on property to do during "rain" days, although we had a pretty weather perfect week. My son caught his first fish! A nice yellow perch. As one can expect growing up in Northern New England, the mosquitos are out, but the house has a screen porch attached to the house to enjoy for those that choose to stay inside, with an outside feel. There is plenty of space inside and outside of this home to explore and enjoy. Most of all, Deb is super communicative and even sent along additional information of events in the area. The house is decked out! I have rented several and you wont find one better for the money! Well Done and Thanks on behalf of our entire family.

Relaxing New Hampshire Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Piermont River House in June. The house was perfect for our needs. It was set back off a long lane and very secluded. Everything you could think of was there! It appeared to be recently remodeled and was very comfortable. We had 2 hot days and managed with the fans provided. We were located in a good location for all our basic needs and sight seeing. We used the screened porch, sauna and cooked on the grill many times and cooked our meals in the beautiful kitchen.

We enjoyed the canoe and kayaks on the river and the fishing was beyond excellent. It was amazing how many different species of fish we caught and how big the large mouth bass were. Even the dog enjoyed the river and did not want to come out.

Our only down side was we had to buy more mosquito spray to fend off the New Hampshire mosquito's!

Deb, we thank you for allowing us to use your home for a memorable vacation. We all had a really good time!!

Awesome family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and well kept. The surrounding property/lawn is also well kept and great for playing outside. The red garage is stocked well with sports equipment, bikes, and fishing rods. The river is down a short somewhat steep trail to the river. We went out on the canoe and my daughter caught her first fish! there is lots to do around the house and beyond. We did day trips to Mt. Washington and the Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory. There is really a wealth of things to do with kids in this area. We had a great time.
