Washington. This executive level home sleeps 10 in beds, 2 on pull out sofa for a total of 12 in the main house. An apartment over the garage is also available FOR AN EXTRA RATE and sleeps 4. The home and property are the perfect venue for family gatherings, both large and small. There are so many things for you and your guests to do at Bretton Woods we can't enumerate them all in our summary, but you could spend your entire vacation, here, at the resort. This beautiful acreage can accommodate a large tent for special occasions, with the house being spacious enough for guests to mill about. Enjoy the comfort of arriving in winter by automobile into and departing from a heated 550 square foot garage. The home has four bedrooms with 3 balconies and three additional porches of thick granite. Eight people sleeping in comfortable bedrooms, en-suite baths, and their own temperature controlled radiant floor heat. Two to 4 more people can be accommodated on a couch pull-out bed in the private den w/large flat screen TV, and other couches are available.

The home sits 300 feet back from any roads so it is very quiet with a shuttle to the ski area picks up at the end of the driveway.

Gas fireplaces in the Family Room and the Master suite ( 700 square feet), will give you a quick warm up after skiing. *Note: Wood burning fireplaces are not available for use after May 1st..

A second floor laundry room is ready to dry your ski clothes in a Maytag dryer or steam cabinet which will take the clothes on hangers or laying down on screen shelves.

A beautiful new FIRE PIT and an outside grill are used year round with the grill being gas fed from the house gas system.

This home sits 200+ feet above the Valley floor in the middle of the National Forest. The Ski area is visible and views of Crawford Notch and Mt. Washington are visible from some rooms in the winter. We have a large resort here, built in 1901-02. A Donald Ross golf Course is available for play as well as an 1890 nine hole Links course. There are many, many recreational amenities here, and also in the valley and surrounding areas.

This 5500 sq.' house has a separate apartment over the garage with a private, outside entrance which is located at the end of the house. This apartment is used by the owner's caretaker, whom has been a custodian of the home for over ten years and is an excellent source for any unforeseen issues that may arise during your stay with us.

Room for all..... Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything you need. It has multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, all the things you will need in the kitchen with beautiful views. The creme de la creme is the back yard with the fire pit.. You are sure to enjoy a nice fire ( wood supplied) to enjoy your family/ friends. The owner is fantastic and loves to make sure you enjoy your time there!

Owner's Response: This was a large group of middle aged women who enjoy an annual vacations together. They were a joyous group who had many meals together and one large dinner at the Mount Washington hotel which is just a ten minute walk away. - Allen Strasser owner, designer and builder of the 5,000+ square foot home that is 12 years old on 2 acres of land with views of only mountains and trees.

Wedding Extravaganza

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property because we needed a place to have our Wedding rehearsal party. We were afraid the owner or management would frown upon us having such a large event, oh contraire! They were great about everything. The grounds were beautiful, inside was great plenty of room. There was plenty of wood for the fire pit and fireworks were allowed. They even had a foo's ball table. The one thing we didn't like was the kitchen was a little small but still workable and the fire pit was in the back but still great. If your having an outdoor event you may want to use the front yard as opposed to the back it is larger and more accommodating, you may also want to bring string lights or more lighting for the event. All and all 5 stars, Thank you Allan and Kathy for making this wedding a dream come true

Wonderful place for a ski weekend with friends!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year our friend group of four couples have stayed at this terrific house for a Bretton Woods ski weekend. The house has lots of space for a large group with well furnished bedrooms and a private bathroom for each bedroom. It is great place for preparing group meals as the kitchen is well stocked with cookware, dishes, glasses etc. Proximity to the mountain is fantastic! It would be a perfect place for families with small children - with plenty of space and a big yard that is set back from the road. The owner, Allen Strasser, and property manager, Harry, are very friendly, helpful and responsive if needed. We had a wonderful time and look forward to having the chance to come back again!

Fantastic Wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone, from family members, out of town friends , wedding party, and our 12 house guests loved and enjoyed every part of the the house we rented!

This home is very spacious, clean and comfortable!

We rented this home so that our 12 family members traveling from all over the country could be together to celebrate our daughters wedding at Mountain View Grand Resort on 10/1/16.

We had a rehearsal dinner on Friday evening comfortably entertaining 55 people, by setting up 3 buffet tables with linens in the garage. which we rented from Abbott Rental. There was plenty of room in the house for guests to sit at 2 add'l rented tables along with the kitchen table. The day after the wedding we had a Sunday Brunch for 25 of the wedding guests to help send off the bride & groom.

The fire pit on Friday evening had ALL the wood and kindling you could possibly need & was great in helping relax the bride, groom & wedding party pre-wedding day!

The house has everything you need to entertain on site, as well as completly accommodate all of our house guests needs ; from clean spacious bedrooms, large bathrooms, which included bed linens, towels, laundry facilities, gorgeous views and large rooms to relax in.

The owner was very prompt answering my emails, and he went above and beyond to make sure the garage was spotless because he knew we were using the garage to set up 3 buffet tables.

We highly recommend this home for anyone wishing to spend a lovely vacation with friends and or family. We hope to someday return.

First class property

  • 5 of 5

Our group has been renting in Bretton Woods for over 30 years. This is by far the best rental yet. It has a great location within walking distance of the hotel and the house is spacious and has every possible amenity. We especially enjoyed the fire pit at night. We thoroughly enjoyed staying there and hope to come back again next year.

About Kathy Bogan

Owner is a retired Airline Captain and USAF fighter pilot. I have 4 sons, seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren. My wife of 53 years passed away suddenly 18 months ago, So, I am rearranging my life by traveling more and still spending some time at Bretton Woods skiing which was why we came here. My late wife, Pat, picked Bretton Woods over any other place in the world to retire to and she had 18 wonderful years living here.

Kathy Bogan purchased this house in 2005

Why Kathy Bogan chose Bretton Woods

We designed and built this home here on this site because Pat wanted a view of Mountains and trees and no views of man-made things.We desired to be across the valley from the ski area because it is much quieter with much more sun in the winter. Slopeside has too much noise from snow making and grooming every night.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits here are that one lives in a wilderness area with abundant wildlife and yet one has every amenity to really enjoying life. In addition this resort is the only ski area in New Hampshire that has development restrictions so that only so many places can be built here. There are currently just 387 units ( condos, duplexes, homes) here and only 900 more can be built.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I must thank you once again for having us at your home. It made our son's wedding fantastic! The event at the house was something they will always cherish. I hope you find everything in order and the same way you left it. From our whole family, we thank you immensely, God bless you, Sincerely, Wayne and Cinda.
