About Stephani Buchman
We are a family with three young children who live in Toronto, Ontario and love to vacation in New Hampshire. Jeremy is a contractor, builder and Solar Panel Instaler and Stephani is a commercial photographer specializing in Food and Interiors. We love spending quality time together and cherish the time we spend at the cottage. We love it so much we want to share it when we are not there so other people can experience the restful rejuvenation we get when we are there.
Stephani Buchman purchased this House in 2003
Why Stephani Buchman chose Thornton
The property on which the cottage is built has been in our family since 1929. My Grandmother's parents built as small cottage (Wadcheeaukee East) when she and her siblings were teenagers. Her family spent summers there, then eventually my grandmother spent summers there, and my mother, sister and I would visit in the summers. Eventually, my sister and I inherited the property and because we wanted to preserve the family history, we thought that we should build another cottage on the lot (the original cottage is too small) so that we could take our families there and share our love of the White Mountains, and the New Hampshire area.

One of the coziest places on earth!
It was a perfect week! We had nearly a foot of snow! A previous renter had left a plastic sled in which all 3 kids fit comfortably. The little hill on the path into the woods was ideal for sledding! I was also able to cross-country ski a little. Lots of things to do inside too.
Comfortable Family Vacation Home
Wonderful warm home for our first trip to the White Mountains!. Neat and clean. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen, The house had everything we needed and items were labeled so we could easily find things.
A perfect mountian getaway!
We loved the charm, and comfort of the house. everything has been thought of to make your stay comfortable, and completely enjoyable!
The yard, fire pit, and river, make this the perfect spot to escape it all!
We also loved the close proximity to the White Mountains. After an all day hike, this was an awesome spot to come back to.
We really hope to stay here again!
Thanks for an unforgettable getaway!
This is such a great review to hear! We have tried hard to think about all the aspects that will make our cottage, feel like a place you would like to return to again and again!
Thank you for taking the time to send in this review!
The house was lovely. Had everything we needed. Loved the walk to river (our dog did too! ), the fire pit, the games inside and the yard for games. A wonderful family weekend. Thank you for sharing it.
Clean & Cozy Cottage
This property was perfect for our stay in NH. We really appreciated how clean it was and the many amenities! The canoe and kayaks made for a memorable, enjoyable day. We also enjoyed the walk to the river through the back of the property.
Stephani was very nice to deal with. She was always very helpful and timely in responding to emails.
We highly recommend this wonderful cottage!
Thank you for your review! It is great to hear that you used the canoe and kayaks , as we don't hear of many people taking advantage of those.
Thank you Joann for taking the time to comment. We would love to have you back at any time!
Wonderful place with easy access to surrounding towns.
Loved this beautiful camp. Every need has been thought of and planned for. The walk to the river was just right and the dogs were in heaven, off leash and in the water! Mirror Lake was a short drive and and completely worth it. Lincoln was surprisingly quiet so there were no lines for restaurants or stores. The Kancamangus highway yielded up some great stopping points for short hikes and dips in flowing rivers. The weather cooperated the whole week. Even one rainy day felt just right. Yes, we would do it again!
