Perfect Property and Location for XC Skiing

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of seven friends who XC ski and snowshoe. We often go to the White Mountains and luckily found this beautiful Thornton home. The property is open concept with plenty of room and privacy for everyone in our group. We appreciated that unlike some rentals, this home was so well equipped for cooking and eating in for dinner each night. I can't think of anything lacking and we hope to repeat this experience next winter as well. The owners are veryaccessible and easy to do business with. A perfect weekend getaway.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had ten people in our group and the home was perfect. Plenty of room , completely stocked, and very homey. The kitchen was huge, bedrooms were very nice, master bath was everyone's favorite. The owners were fantastic to deal with, would love to stay there again. We would highly recommend staying there. Laura

Perfect NH Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this place. The house was more than we could have ever asked for! Plenty of room for 10 adults without feeling cramped. Front and back deck offered lots of extra space to spread out and relax. The kitchen was spacious and stocked with all the gadgets you need to cook for a large group (huge stove, griddle, etc.) We made good use of the grill and fire pit outside too. The owners were a pleasure to work with and were extremely helpful and responsive (even during our trip re: last minute questions). Would definitely rent again! :)

Large, Beautiful Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great find! We stayed here with friends for a winter weekend. The house is in a quiet, woodsy neighborhood and is 20 minutes to Waterville and Loon Mountain. We loved the open-floor plan with lots of common space to relax with our friends. Kitchen was big and fully-equipped. Beds were comfortable. The house was very clean. Everything was just as described. We would love to rent it again next winter. Owners very were helpful and friendly.

Beautiful and Clean Home!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and just as described. We stayed for a weekend for a family ski trip and everything was truly impressive. The kitchen was wonderful to work in and the bathrooms were lovely. There were even board games and cards for the kids to play with. The house was fully heated and everything worked perfectly. Deb was quick to respond whenever we ran into trouble. Check out was smooth and painless. I would highly recommend this place for any large group!
