  • Great Location and Plenty of Space


    The house was perfect for our group, well equipped with plenty of space. We were in town to attend a wedding at whiteface hollow, and the venue was very close which made things very convenient. Plenty of space for all ten of us to sleep comfortably and get ready before the event, and beautiful spot on the river to enjoy the summer weather during the days. Would highly recommend!

  • Wonderful family stay


    The home was wonderful for our family for the long weekend and the brook was a perfect spot for hanging out. We enjoyed the large table for meals. My daughter didn't want to leave she loved the home so much! The home isn't as open as the pictures look, but is still a great place for a large group. My mother-in-law struggled a bit navigating the home especially to the bathrooms because of her mobility challenges. There were lots of towels but not enough sheets for the pullout couch. All and all a great place to stay and we would book again!!

The kitchen had everything we could possibly need the rooms were clean the bathrooms well stocked and clean. What a wonderful place to stay.

  • Enjoyed the area


    First the absolute good - this was a large property with room for our six person party to spread out and spend time together as well as enjoy their own personal space. The beds were very comfortable and the property manager was accommodating of a late request for an early check in. The river and sounds of it are beautiful - it was really nice to have the sounds and the area around to explore. Prior to check-in there were a LOT of communications about rules etc - most of which seemed to result from prior poor experiences with visitors. It made us a little uneasy about our choice and upcoming stay. The problem neighbor wasn’t really a problem if you were a normal person acting reasonably on a property - we found them pleasant enough. Upon arrival, we were disappointed at the state of the screen porch which we had intended to use pretty extensively. Due to dirtiness from pollen and a smaller grill than pictured (small Weber not large grill), we were unable to utilize this space. The owner did indicate this was due to being out of season and would be addressed for future visitors. Also the property photos seem to be dated, all is considerably more worn and there are signs about numerous broken pieces of furniture or out of use items throughout. Things just need a touch up and some care and this would be resolved.We felt the property manager was receptive and responsive to concerns as raised. One other note for anyone who might visit the area in June - check to see if it is Laconia Bike Week. Apparently this is every year in June and it was a significantly different experience of the town than it would have been when bike week wasn’t going on. A number of businesses closed, changed hours, etc due to this event. Overall our visit was pleasant, the owner was helpful and we appreciated having the space. This afforded us the opportunity to gather in a way we would not have been able to at a hotel.

    Manager's Response:

    From the owner: We genuinely appreciate the candid review, and we’re glad that you liked the house in general. Please allow us to address some of the specific comments:

    We had an unfortunate incident involving midnight fireworks by some guests a few months ago, prompting our note to upcoming guests asking them please to respect the peace of our neighbors; this seemed like the best way to avert future issues of this type. We haven’t had any further problems (knock on wood) and our neighbors have been very gracious about the whole thing.

    We just returned from three full weeks at the house and have this year invested almost $100,000 in upgrades (including forty new windows, Andersen storm doors, some furniture, and (still pending) a new roof, granite countertops, and some new decking), and none of the furniture is broken. We did recently have to replace one broken bed (it took a week to get it) and we’ve added another new bed since your departure. We have notes asking people not to move the huge and heavy dining room table because in the past guests have damaged it by doing so. It is now in great shape.

    Almost all the pictures were taken by a professional photographer in the past several months. There are a few older exterior shots, including one of a gas grill. We now offer a charcoal grill because we had so many issues with the gas one.

    We have also tidied up the screen porch and remounted its screen doors and added a new hammock, so the space is now much more usable.

    Overall we have been through the house a lot over the past month and year and replaced a lot of curtains, curtain rods, rugs, towels, bedding, dishes, glasses, pans, etc. Things are looking good and we are striving every day to make them even better.

    Thanks again for your candid comments.
