About Brenda

Owners resides in Farifield County CT. We are a family of 5 that enjoys year round outdoor sports and nature. We love to ski, hike, bike and host our friends at the farmhouse!

Brenda purchased this house in 1980

Why Brenda chose Bethlehem

My parents fell in love with the White mountains on their first prip to the area back in the 1970's and bought this house. The Magnificence of the White mountains including Mt. Washington and the spectacular Franconia and Crawford notches are captivating. The healthy environment with its unique mountain air currents make it heaven in the summer. The terrific snow accumulations and proximity to Major ski resorts make it ideal for our alpine and cross county loving ski family.

Wonderful, Spacious Yet Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our large extended family to spend a weekend vacation in the White Mountains! I highly recommend this house. Although it can accommodate a lot of people, it has a very cozy feeling. We loved sitting around the big kitchen table and roasting marshmallows in the firepit outside. The listing is accurate and the property is very clean and well-maintained. Brenda, the owner, was awesome. She even gave us some good tips for climbing Mt. Washington while we were there! The house is really close to all the things we were interested in doing - Cog Railway, Tuckerman's Ravine, Mt. Washington Hotel activities, shopping and restaurants. Thank you Brenda! We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Kerrie, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Great to hear that you and your group had an excellent stay and enjoyed the house. Our location in the White Mountains really is perfect no matter what season it is! As you note, it is In the heart of the White Mountains, near skiing/Snowboarding (Bretton Woods, Cannon, Loon, Wildcat, Attitash), Shops, and restaurants. In summer, a guest can enjoy 2 nearby lakes, golf courses outstanding hiking, canoeing /kayaking, and clean, well run, out of the ordinary theme parks for the kids ( Santa's Village, Clark's Trading Post), and more. The house's layout accommodates a large group while affording privacy. We look forward to having you back again in the future.

Perfect setup for a family reunion.

  • 4 of 5

It's a rustic house with many nooks and crannies but perfect for a family reunion. Everyone could find a place of their own. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to entertain. The outdoor patio with the fire pit was a real treat at night and on a cool afternoon. A perfect location in the central white mountains close to trails, restaurants and other activities

Owner's Response: Dear Nahiomy, Thank you for your comments. Glad you had a great time. It is a wonderful property for a large family or 2 smaller families. That is one of the reasons that we many of our guest families end up making it an annual tradition in the summer , fall or winter. The excellent location also means easy access to endless activities. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Spacious house on a quiet street

  • 4 of 5

My family of five, and our neighbors and their kids rented this house for a long weekend in mid-September. The house is located on a quiet dirt road with no through traffic. The house is an older home, but maintained, and there was ample space for the 9 of us. The third story has 4 bedrooms, but it is split such that only 2 are accessible from either set of stairs in the house. For us, this was ideal as the three older girls took one side of the 3rd floor, and the younger girls took the other. The large bedrooms are on the 2nd floor. There is also 2 areas to watch TV on the first floor which allowed the adults to have one area, and the children to occupy the other. The kitchen was large and able to accommodate all of us easily for meals. We enjoyed sitting outside at night and using the firepit. The property is situated in relatively close proximity to Santa's Village, Clark's Trading Post and Storyland. There is a decent restaurant down the street that is family friendly as well. I would recommend this house to large groups looking for a quiet weekend getaway.

Owner's Response: Dear David, Thank you for taking the time to submit your comments. The house is the original Maplewood farmhouse and it is an antique structure. It is typical of the rambling structure of farmhouses that expanded as families grew. Like you , this is one of the main characteristics of the house that we love. Namely its rambling nature that makes it fun and affords privacy and space. The easy access to theme parks, hiking , skiing golf and many other areas of interest make it an excellent location. The flat, open yard is suited to games and outdoor fun. As you point out, we work hard to keep the place clean and each year identify an improvement to be made. This year it is a new roof! We hope you will visit again in the future. Brenda

Happy renter!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've rented at Brenda's home! It's a great escape in the white mountains and easy to get everywhere...conway, santas village, clarks, attitash, etc!! We made the rounds and love coming home to a quiet setting with a big ol fire pit to relax around with our family.

Our host is nothing but accommodating and easy to work with!

Thanks again for another stay!

Owner's Response: Dear Meagan, It was terrific to have you back for another family vacation. Yes, the location is convenient to all the White Mountain attractions you mentioned as well as lakes, rivers, golf courses and of course the amazing hiking trail network in Crawford and Franconia Notches. Next time you return I recommend you check out the summer Theatre in Whitefield or Lincoln as well! Thanks for your feedback. Brenda
