Upon arrival the driveway, walkway and entire outdoors including deck to the backyard were covered in caterpillars. You couldn’t walk without stepping on one which is completely disgusting. When entering the house I noticed every room had cobwebs the floors and counters were dirty. So after noticing that we took it upon ourselves to wipe everything down because even though they said they had a housecleaner I didn’t believe it. The dryer didn’t work correctly I had to drive my clothes twice on a high heat setting. Also noticed after washing the clothes they had a weird smell like they weren’t even cleaned. The bedrooms were a great size and fit my family correctly for what we needed it for so that was good. The table downstairs was extremely wobbly and was ready to fall apart as my family sat down to try to eat on the table. So that was pretty funny. Lastly the deck sliding door had a hole in the screen and caterpillars were on the stripping to where the door slides so if we wanted to leave it open for air you couldn’t because more caterpillars would come in. We paid good money to rent this house out and it didn’t have things in top notch to use so we cannot give 5 stars. Like if we wanted to use the grill to cook we couldn’t use anything out there. That was something we wanted to do so had to adjust.

From the owners: "Hi Karen, we are sorry you did not have a good experience. Since we live in a wooded environment, bordering the White Mountain National Forest, there are bugs around the property. Unfortunately, this year, there were a lot of gypsy moths and caterpillars. We reached out to professionals to get their advice, and because these critters only come for 2 weeks during the year (and generally once every 2-5 years) there was not much to be done, especially since we live right next to the National Forest and these critters were unavoidable this year. Upon reading your review, we reached out to our association and to Bartlett Tree service to see if anything could be done, and we received a similar response. We do have an amazing cleaning crew who we’ve had a good experience with so far, so we're not sure why the floors and counters were dirty, but we will relay the message so they know and receive the feedback as well."
Ideally situated near North Conway in a forested area, the house provided all the amenities needed for a wonderful getaway. The house has four floors, a well-equipped kitchen (including dishwasher), and gorgeous deck with charcoal for outdoor enjoyment. The house is part of a duplex, but we did not hear any noise from the neighbor, and the entire property feels incredibly private. Given the quiet area, this is not a place for parties, but rather for relaxing getaway with 1-2 families or a small group of friends. We hope to return soon!
Wonderful staying here. Close to so many hikes and activities but yet so secluded. We were looking for a quiet peaceful place to relax at night after the daily excursions and this place was perfect. It’s clean and has all the comforts of home. Thank you Melinda and Ben for sharing your home with us! Can’t wait to visit again!
We had a great stay in Melinda and Ben's townhouse. While it rained for the majority of our trip, we were cozy in the house and had lots of fun cooking together and enjoying each other's company. The location is great and we enjoyed exploring North Conway and nearby Diana's Baths, Cathedral Ledge, and Echo Lake. There was plenty of room in the townhouse for all of us, and Melinda was very communicative and helpful. We'd love to come back again! (Hopefully with more sun ;))
Clean town home excellent for families!
