Overview

About the property

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.

Un super weekend !!

  • 5 of 5

Dès que nous sommes arrivés, nous avons fait WOWW ! Quel beau chalet, on se sentait tout de suite à la maison ! Une bouteille de vin nous attendait avec un petit mot pessonnalisé. Tout était impeccable ! Ce chalet a vraiment tout le nécessaire pour passer du bon temps entre amis ou en famille. Nous avons passé de belles soirées dans le salon au bord du magnifique foyer ou à jouer au ping pong au sous-sol. Pour les repas, nous sommes très confortables à 8 dans la salle à manger. Il y a 2 salles de bains complètes. Bob a été très accessible par téléphone et il nous a suggéré de belles piste de hicking qui répondait à nos besoins. Ce chalet a été le meilleur que j'ai loué. Je le recommande à tous ! Merci Bob !

Spectacular! Beautiful log cabin with lots of privacy and super clean!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had a wonderful time staying at the log cabin. The owners left us a welcome card and a bottle of wine to start off our vacation. Everyone was amazed with how clean and comfortable the place was. Lots of room for our party of eight. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the wrapped around deck, made s'mores at night at the fire pit and went kayaking down the road at perch pond. White Mountain attractions are about 30 minutes away. We all really enjoyed the accommodation and will definitely stay here again next time. Thank you Bob and Susan!

An exceptionally well thought out and designed log home. We were impressed when we entered that the home was immaculate inside. Congenial owners who left us a welcome note along with a bottle of wine. A great start to a wonderful vacation. Lots of great outdoor activities in the area as well as beautiful scenery. We highly recommend and would definitely stay here again!

The home is breathtaking down to the littlest details

  • 5 of 5

Between the beauty of the home and the proximity to all the fun mountain activities this place was 5 star. The owners take pride in giving it that authentic log cabin with all the high end amenities of a resort like getaway. I'd like to say your guaranteed a glimpse of a bear, we lucked out and saw one! Definitely would recommend this home to a family or more. Plenty of room and beds to make it a great stay for possibly 2 families. We had a great time exploring Loon Mt nearby with summer fun activities, just make sure you do the ropes course early bc they stop taking people up to the spot by 4pm even though it's open until 6. Great places to eat close to the home. Just a short jaunt down 93 to Plymouth and there's lots to choose from! Thanks again!! Hope to some day return to the home!!

Here there is a wide sandy beach and an outcropping of jumping rocks. This spot entertains toddlers through teens. This is also a popular entry spot for tubing. 1.8 miles from the house is Perch Pond. This is one of the best fishing spots in Campton.

The Town of Plymouth is only 10 minutes away. This is the home of Plymouth State University. It has a quaint Main Street with a variety of restaurants, shopping, live theaters and a skating rink.
