"Bear Crossing" Your "Home Away" from home!
average rating of 4.827586 based on 58 reviews

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a short period of time but were so impressed by Marilyn's guest home. The house has everything you could possibly need for your stay, closets full of linens, beddings and towels. Also a fully equipped kitchen and even toys for the kids. The house is warm and decorated for the season, our kids loved finding different bears around the house. We definitely found a home away from home at Bear Crossing. Can't wait to go back!

Thank you Merylin!

A great place to stay for skiing in White Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this home during our Bretton Woods skiing weekend. The house is spacious and is very well maintained. Vintage furnishings and lots of decor create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Knowing that restaurants are scarce in the area, we were glad to learn that there is a great cafe and a donut shop just down the street from the house. A grocery shop is also nearby. Marilyn is a very accommodating host and had been very helpful throughout our stay.

I highly recommend this rental.

Charming house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 3 kids) had a great, four night stay at this property. The house was very warm and inviting and quite festively decorated for the winter holidays! It had everything we needed—a full kitchen (with a nice assortment of Keurig coffees and teas) plenty of bedrooms and comfy, spacious living spaces to hang out in. Equally important, the house was super clean which was especially impressive to us because it is a pet friendly accommodation (we were able to bring our terrier). We came during winter and the driveway was well shoveled and the stairs salted.

Communication was excellent throughout. Marilyn was always quick to reply by text, she gave us clear explanations for how to check in and check out, and even offered us a later check out time. In addition, she was especially kind because I had forgotten my watch and small reading light at the house—she contacted me within hours and offered to ship them to me which I really appreciated!

The location of the house is perfect for skiing. The house is in Bethlehem and in easy walking distance of the main drag (which includes a small grocery/convenience store where we were able to stock up on supplies), it’s about 10-12 minutes from Littleton, 15 minutes from Cannon Mountain (great for family friendly/beginners skiing), and 20 minutes from Bretton Woods. We enjoyed eating dinners at the Schilling Brewery in Littleton and the pub at Franconia Inn.

One note: google maps seems slightly off on the directions if you are coming in from the I93, so you might want to double check with Marilyn on the best local directions.

Wonderful stay, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 3 kids) had an excellent stay for 4 nights at this property. Marilyn's house was warm and inviting and decorated very festively for the holidays! Equally important, the house was super clean which especially impressed us since this is a pet friendly property (we were able to bring along our terrier). The house had everything we needed--a full kitchen, a large assortment of teas/coffees, and plenty of room and comfy sofas to hang out on. Communication was great throughout--we were told exactly how to check in and were even offered a late checkout, plus Marilyn was so kind--I had left a watch and a book light and she contacted me on the same day I checked out to let me know and offered to send the items to me!

The house is located in Bethlehem, in easy walking distance of the main drag (where there is a great place to get espresso coffees and also a small, friendly convenience/grocery store where we were able to stock up on items), is about a 10-15 drive to Littleton and a 15 minute drive for skiing at Cannon Mountain (which was great for families). Bretton Woods is about 20 minutes away as well.

One note is that we think google maps is slightly off in its directions--if you are coming from I-93 on 302, don't turn right on Pinewood (as google maps directs you to), turn right on Jefferson instead which is one block further. (Otherwise you don't seem to be able to access the block the house is located on.)

Anyway, thanks for a great stay, we highly recommend the property!

The place was very warm and welcoming. We arrived to a home with Xmas decorations.

  • 4 of 5

Marilyn was very attentive, responsive, and helpful. She made sure the driveway and steps were cleared every morning when it had snowed. The home was very warm and welcoming. Marilyn had decorated it with Xmas decorations. The kitchen was well equipped and the place was very nice. It was located near the town and close to the Bretton Woods ski area, where we were spending our time every day. Marilyn was very sweet and even provided our dog with a very nice bed and poop bags. We would definitely want to rent this property again.

Perfect for a weekend (or longer) getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! Coordinating the weekend away was easy, the property and house were beautiful and perfectly clean. The space is huge and would be amazing for a group of people. We enjoyed every moment of our fall foliage weekend!
