Spectacular, Mountainside Log Home. A perfect getaway with family or friends!
This amazing log home is best suited for people who love the the outdoors. This property is so appealing because it is in a perfect location. It is 10 minutes away from Route 93, 20 minutes to Squam Lake and if you head North, it is another short 20 minutes to all the activities the White Mountains have to offer. The log home is situated mountainside on five acres of beautiful, pristine forest with a small mountain stream and winter views of the Sandwich range. In the summer it has a cozy and magical treehouse-like feel with the woods edge coming very near to the house. Even though there are neighbors close by, you really feel like you are the only one around! It is not unusual to see a flock of wild turkeys strutting by outside a window or to see moose and deer tracks on the snow!
This home was designed by the owner who is an architectural and interior designer. Much thought was given to the way the house functions with a group of active people wanting to enjoy this amazing area! Our goal is to make your stay easy and enjoyable and to have you make happy memories with family and friends that you will remember for years to come!
As you enter the lower level from the outdoors, there is a mudroom with many hooks to hang up coats and a bench for putting on shoes. Adjacent to the mudroom, there is a huge gear room for all of your outdoor equipment. This includes a packing table, cubbies for storage, racks and pegs for skis, helmets, snowshoes, climbing equipment and backpacks. There is also plenty of floorspace for golf bags! This floor also has a large Family Room with a couch, two oversized chairs with ottomans, a flat screen TV, dartboard, ping-pong table and a classic rough-sawn lumber bar with 3 bar stools.
The middle floor has an open floor plan that includes a Livingroom with a large 'L' shaped sofa and a Diningroom with a table that seats 6-8 people, all under a tall cathedral ceiling with clerestory windows. Visible from both rooms there is a very large custom designed 'real' stone wood burning fireplace with a raised bluestone hearth for sitting and enjoying the heat from the flames or drying mittens!. There is a large sliding door between the Livingroom and Diningroom to go out onto the wrap around porch with a picnic table that looks over the stream, footbridge and woods. There is an additional door in the living room that has direct access to the covered section of the porch with rocking chairs. The kitchen is open to the Livingroom and Diningroom has beautiful custom pine cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, microwave, built-in french door refrigerator, custom wine rack and an island with 4 bar stools. On this floor there is a Queen bed guest room and a guest room with 2 twin beds. There is also a full bath with a single bowl vanity with a granite countertop and tub/shower combination unit and toilet. The washer and dryer are also located on this floor in a convenient hall closet.
Upstairs there is a cozy loft with a loveseat (that pulls out to twin size bed) and classic Adirondack lounging chair with a leather ottoman. This area has a flat screen TV and bookcase with a variety of DVD's, books and trail guides. This is the perfect place to curl up with a book, watch your favorite movie or plan your next hike. This level also includes the Master Bedroom. The Master bedroom has a king sized log bed. Adjacent to this room is a small bedroom with bunk beds. It has a window that overlooks the stream and woods. The Master bathroom is located directly off the master bedroom and includes a single bowl vanity with a granite countertop, tub/shower enclosure and a separate toilet area.
Outside there is a large fire pit with benches as well as a raised log bar for drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Here you will also find a Weber charcoal grille. A short walk from here you can walk across the bridge to a trail that follows the stream up the mountain. This trail connects to many trails behind our property. If you head the other direction, the horseshoe pit is a short 30 feet away.
If you decide to take a walk or jog during your stay here, you can walk to a beautiful covered bridge which is only 100 yards from the driveway. If you pass over the bridge, it will lead you by a beautiful horse farm. If you decide to continue, it's a scenic 3 mile loop back to our cabin. Perch Pond is another scenic walk/jog destination. At the bottom of our driveway go to the right and Perch Pond is 1.8 miles down on the left side of the road. This is a perfect spot to picnic, kayak or fish.

Rustic Paradise! A real gem of a home. 💗
Susan and Bob's beautiful mountain home provides a perfect vacation experience from beginning to end. Gorgeous views, spotlessly clean, and super comfortable. I already can't wait to return again. Stacy from Rhode Island
Good for events at Plymouth State
We really enjoyed our stay. We had family reunite for our daughter's event at Plymouth State University. It was very convenient to the school. Even though it rained all weekend, we were able to enjoy the covered porch, and nine people were very comfortable in the large space. The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped for cooking in. Lovely home!
Amazing home! Everything was perfect!
We had such a great time staying here! Everything was just perfect! We do not have a bad thing to stay other than we wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back! Thank you!!!
We absolutely loved the beauty of Bob and Susan’s home and the exquisite care and decorations they chose to compliment each room. We also felt very at home with the array of amenities they provided from the super cozy beds to the fully equipped kitchen to the complimentary fitness center passes!
We would love to return again in the near future and highly recommend this rental to other vacationing families!
This was an amazing place to stay for the weekend. The owners have really spent time thinking of everything visitors would need and enjoy. We were welcomed with a note and a bottle of wine. Everything you need to know about the property was neatly written out in a laminated manual. It’s a perfect location for winter or summer activities. We will most definitely be staying here again.
The cabin was beautiful and immaculate. My family and my friend's family were so comfortable and there was plenty of room for the 8 of us. I highly recommend this home and hope to someday return.
