Property description

SUMMER RATE REDUCTION..... REMAINING WEEKS DRASTICALLY REDUCED FOR QUICK BOOKING! Contact us for your vacation reservations. Limited dates available.

When you arrive at a place where you want to be, all is exactly as it should be.
"Great location !!!! comfortable and cozy. I would definitely go back. Perfect place to make memories."

This is what vacation is like at the River Zen House on the Saco. Simply put, this is why you need to come here.

Whether you are looking to reserve your summer vacation week, your winter ski dates, or anytime in between, please take a look at the photos. This property has its own private tennis court, large yard, and is located in the heart of the White Mountains of New Hampshire directly on the river and close to everything the Mount Washington Valley has to offer vacationers. Plus, we have just reduced the summer rate by a whopping 20% so that we can finish filling out the summer booking calendar

The house is a 5 bedroom, 2 living room, private country riverfront house with a sandy beach and beautiful views of the Saco river. For you skiers, Mt. Canmore is just 10 to 15 minutes away. Attitash, Wildcat, Black Mountain, Loon, Shawnee Peak, all are an easy drive away to hit their slopes any day you want. The Settler's Green Outlets are a ten minute drive away for great shopping.

The 3 sliding glass patio doors give constant views to the Saco. During spring and summer you can watch the canoers, kayakers, and tubers float past from the large wrap-around deck and screened enclosure overlooking the water. Our private beach abuts the property and the tennis court on the property is exclusively for your use.

The house has been in our family for many years and we are happy to share it with you. It is available for vacation weeks (7 day weeks) during the summer months and weekends & midweek all other times. Please don't hesitate to make a phone call. We are always happy to answer questions and be of any help we can for your vacation. Call Paul at 802-325-2108!

Manager info

About: The River Zen House has been the Brotchie's family vacation house for many years. We rent it to other vacationers part of the year to help sustain the property. Our kids are grown now but still love to visit when time permits. We have many joyous memories of our times there and still visit occasionally for family gatherings and reunions.

Why Conway, NH, USA:
We grew up hiking and skiing in the North Conway area. We are outdoors people. We were drawn to this home because of it's proximity to the river but also because of it's unique up-country feel. The house was built in the 1970s. We love the wood walls and all the views to the river, not to mention standing or sitting on the deck to simply watch and listen to it pass by when its time to decompress. It's awesome.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The River Zen House is in the perfect location! Secluded and private yet close to everything. Watching and hearing the river's constant voice whispering just outside offers a peacefulness that is just not available to most homes. It's what makes being there so relaxing.
