We are 8 adults and 4 children and while the adults were watching tv and relaxing upstairs the kids were downstairs playing wii I would reccomend this house to anyone clean and cozy!!!! Waking up to the mountain views and then the watching the sun go down was just sooo nice!!!! Rich is a pleasure to deal with and very easy to reach at any time. So if you are thinking you want to rent this house dont just rent it!!! My group just loves it!! Thanks Again Rich!!!!

It is totally private. The home is beautifully decorated. The living room with wood stove was so cozy, warm and appealing. We kept the stove on just for the ambiance; there's nothing like a crackling fire and wood was plentifully provided. The kitchen is beautifully equiped; the bedrooms extremely comfortable; there was satellite TV, a hot tub, wireless Internet, lots of games, movies, books. The night sky from the deck of this lovely A frame was awash in stars that cannot ever be seen from the city. The mountains were brilliant with fall colors. This was truly a perfect getaway weekend, close to the Fryeburg Fair. We hope to return in the winter for another delightful stay.
