Wildlife is abundant on this property and you will likely be enthralled with sightings of fox, deer, bald eagles, beavers, ducks, geese, turtles, and a variety of song birds.
This bright, private guest loft is attached to the owner's main house (although no common walls between the two & separate roofs) and has its own two private entrances up a flight of stairs. It's fully furnished and equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable with living and dining room furniture, 2 queen beds, bureaus, bookcases stocked with a variety of reading material, games, and DVD's. The newly renovated kitchen is a fully equipped kitchen with pots and pans, dishes, utensils, stove, full-sized refrigerator, microwave and plenty of new cupboard storage space. The cozy bedroom area has windows for cross-ventilation and a comfy queen size bed. A second queen bed is in a cove adjacent to the bathroom/dining room area. There is a spacious modern bathroom, walk-in closet, and pull down stair to access additional attic storage for longer stays. This loft has a cathedral ceiling with fan, is an open-concept space with a spacious feel. It is bright and sunny with plenty of windows to allow for cross-ventilation. For your comfort, an air conditioner is provided as well as a Rinnai heater to quickly warm the place in chilly weather.
There are plenty of river and local mountain views of Vermont from both inside and outside of the unit. A private outdoor landing at the top of the new stairway is large enough to permit 2 - 3 people to sit and enjoy views of the river and mountains. You may wander the property and enjoy listening to the sounds of a waterfall across the river or the sounds of many bird varieties singing.
For your enjoyment some lawn games are available (no charge) such as bocce, croquet, badminton, and frisbee. There's a park bench beneath a tree to enjoy relaxing and viewing the river as well as picnic table and a fireplace/grill at the river's edge. You can also enjoy your own private outdoor area complete with fire pit, adirondack chairs, table with chairs/umbrella, and outdoor gas grill to cook up those burgers and have a cookout while enjoying the view!! Feel free to bring along your kayaks (or borrow ours for free) so you can explore and enjoy the Connecticut River - there's a dam upstream and islands for the public to enjoy, downstream. If you want to make a day trip out of Kayaking on the river, we're happy to come pick you up wherever you end up!! You may also bring your bicycles (or borrow ours) to enjoy venturing out to explore this beautiful area further. Walking around town is a favorite activity for many and you'll have a chance to chat with many friendly country folks while you're on your walk. Hiking is just a stone's throw from the house up Hunts Mountain Rd. so come prepared with your hiking shoes and water bottles. In season there are tasty wild raspberries you can pick and enjoy! While hiking up Hunt's Mountain Rd. you can also take a peek at our second VRBO property - a cozy off-the-grid mountain cabin with the most amazing westerly mountain views and sunsets looking over into Vermont. You just might want to stay there sometime, too (especially once you see the view)!!
This destination property is such a beautiful and unique place we're sure you would enjoy staying here to celebrate some special occasion - honeymoon, anniversary, birthday, etc. The area offers fun places to visit as well and plenty of stores for your convenience. Take a stroll early evenings and wander around this sleepy little town, cross over the bridge by the dam and into Vermont or take in a night in St. Johnsbury (just 25 minutes away), eat at Anthony's Diner and see a movie. Be sure to visit Littleton, just 30 minutes north and check out Chutters, a popular candy store, local shops, restaurants, a covered bridge you can walk across, community theatre, movie theater, etc. Or, play tourist for the day and take in Haverhill, Franconia, Lincoln, Hanover NH or Stowe, Newbury or Bradford, VT. For your convenience, just 15 minutes away is the town of Woodsville, where you can find all the shops you need: A super Walmart, Shaw's for groceries, Rite Aid, Cumberland Farms, Village Pizza, 2 Chinese restaurants, a seafood restaurant, other restaurants, Happy Hour Restaurant (in Wells River, just over the River), P & H Truck Stop (all time favorite for locals and tourists alike featuring homemade pies galore), Slick's ice cream on Rt. 10 north just out of Woodsville (best in NH).
Our goal is that you have the most relaxing, awe-inspiring experience away from home while enjoying the incredible beauty this region of NH has to offer. After living here for 6 years, I do believe this upper valley area is most certainly one of New Hampshire's best kept secrets. I still can't believe we live in such an incredible place and my hope is to share this experience with as many people as possible. We look forward to your stay at "The loft at River's Edge" and we're quite certain you will leave here feeling rejuvenated and relaxed!!
