About the property

Summer 2017 weeks and ski weekends already booking! Please call or email to get in the schedule. 10 Minutes to North Conway and close to all ski areas!

This house has been recently updated and renovated within the last year. The house sits on the Saco river with sweeping mountain views of Attitash. Relax inside by the hearth or sit outside on the 40 foot deck that is just feet from the river. With 5 bedrooms and three baths the home can comfortably fit medium to large size groups. The house is ideally situated 10 minutes from North Conway, 5 minutes from Story Land and just minutes from Attitash. There are plenty of hiking trails nearby and a utility trail that takes you up the river. Take a tube or canoe down the Saco and get out in front of the house! The house also has a recently finished basement accessible through a outside entrance or steep nordic staircase that was recently installed and not pictured. The basement has concrete floors and shiplap walls with a fireplace, bar, lounge area, ping pong table and foosball table!

This is our first time listing this house and are so excited for guests to share in it's charm and fun. Please check back for more pictures.

Wifi and basic cable included

Large flat screen TV

Indoor and outdoor speakers

The House is an absolute blast but if you decide to stay here you will need to respect the house and the community. Trailers and or RVs are strictly prohibited.

Please note, this house is a camp on the river in the White Mountains. It has been renovated and is a lot of fun but it is by no means a "luxury property". If you are looking for a fun, clean and relaxing family home right on the river this is your place!

Frequently asked questions! Please read before booking so you know what to expect

Is this a high end custom home?

It is not. While the home has been extensively renovated we still consider it to be a "camp" and is very much a rustic chalet that fits in the Mount Washington Valley character. That being said we take pride in the cleanliness of our home and our cleaners are some of the best in the area

Who is this home best suited for?

Most of our guests are families getting together and enjoying the home and the Mount Washington Valley

Can I swim in front of the house?

Sometimes, the water height completely depends on the rainfall and amount of snow. At times the water is 6+ feet deep. During normal summer months the water gets about waist high in front of the house. There is however a swimming hole about 100 feet up the river.

Can I kayak or tube in front of the house?

Absolutely! During normal summer months the river in front of the house is more than high enough to tube or kayak down. If you want, you can float for hours.

Are there hiking trails nearby?

Yes! The mount Stanton trail head is on our road, about a 5 minute walk from the house!

Is the house in a neighborhood or is it secluded?

We are in a residential neighborhood.

How is the internet/cell service?

ATT and Verizon get service at the home, I am unsure of other carriers. The home has wifi but if there are 10 guests who are connected or trying to stream things will significantly slow down.

Great House with a Great Host

  • 5 of 5

The house was right on the Saco river with beautiful views. Brendan was super responsive throughout the whole process and made the stay feel very welcoming. We forgot something at the house and he even offered to mail it back to us. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone!

Great ski house on the Saco River!

  • 5 of 5

Great house and hosts. Had everything we needed for a great ski weekend and the view from the deck is amazing. Would highly recommend if skiing at attatash. Gameroom downstairs was great for extra space, would love to see this place in the summer with the river right in front of you!

Such an amazing home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I just spent an amazing 4 day weekend at this gem of a home! There were 13 of us that stayed and we all fit comfortably. The house was so welcoming and very cozy as well! We especially loved the awesome Farmers table that sat most of us comfortably! We cooked all our meals there and loved hanging around the table enjoying lots of laughs! The deck was amazing! We loved our morning coffee on the deck enjoying the incredible mountain views! The owner Brendan was so nice to work with as well!!! I totally suggest this rental to everyone! It's a great "Home Sweet Home" away from your home!!!!❤

Best of summer and fall!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed at the Riverfront Chalet at the end of August and enjoyed some warm summer days in the river. We were also lucky enough to experience the start of fall weather in September and the crisp nights, it was beautiful! The chalet was comfortable for our family. We really enjoyed the location, convenient to Diana's Bath, Echo Lake, Story Land and many waterfalls and trails within 30 min. Since we were so close to Story Land, we could take advantage of going one day after 3pm and returning another day for free during our stay. This is great especially for first timers to the park. Having the river in front of the property was a very nice benefit. No need to get into a car to get a swim in, just a small walk to get to a secluded beach area. Our kiddos loved searching for their favorite rocks. We truly had a wonderful NH vacation!
