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 on main floor

Flat screen tv, dvd player and gaming systems in the game room

Indoor and outdoor speakers

Hammocks galore

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

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!

Winter Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (6 adults, 4 kids) came for a white Christmas getaway and we couldn't have asked for a better spot! The space in the cabin was perfect, plenty of areas to spread out but also be together. The views are incredible and we had all the conveniences we needed for a week's stay. The owners were awesome, extremely responsive and helpful. Highly recommend!!

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for us to get friends together for a weekend to get away from the everyday stress and just relax. There is plenty to do in the area and having the river right out back makes for a perfect relaxing tube float. Also the owners were super helpful with the whole process and giving us ideas of places to eat and things to do in the area. Overall it was definitely the perfect weekend getaway.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends all loved staying here! The location was perfect: close proximity to several hiking trails, Story Land, and stores. We enjoyed the views of the river and mountains from inside (large windows and sliding doors) as well as outside on the huge deck. The home is thoughtfully decorated and well appointed. The owners, Brendan and Lindsay, were super responsive and friendly. We would absolutely stay here again!

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second week this summer at the Saco river chalet. We love the improvements made since our first stay. The inside stairs to the basement were a huge improvement. They property is well maintained, and close to everything we wanted to be near. Brendan is very quick to respond to messages regarding any questions you may have about the property. We are already looking forward to our stay next summer!
