The SpaceWELCOME TO PARADISE!
We feel that our dreams came true when we discovered this house just a few months ago. There is nothing else like it at Bretton Woods. Surrounded completely by National Forest land, the house sits on 32 acres bordered by National Forests on 3 sides, and the Ammonoosuc River on the other. It's located right below the West Mountain ski trails at Bretton Woods. The river runs along the property for over half a mile, and there are several separate private beach areas to be enjoyed - sandy beaches and pebble beaches. Awesome for tubing, fishing, swimming! Spectacular views of the mountains, including Mt Washington, will greet you when you are not immersed in the stunning woods. In front of the house, a large meadow is kept open by the National Forest Service to provide forage for many animals including moose and deer. On an opposite corner of the property is a beaver pond and a bog area that is a popular feeding ground for moose on summer nights, when it is not unusual to see people sitting near the entrance to our driveway to wait for the majestic animals to show up. Throughout the property, patches of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries alternate with beautiful woodlands and the sound of the river. In warm summer nights, you will be mesmerized by the thousands of fireflies that fly all around the property. Fly fish, swim, tube from your own backyard. And at night, enjoy more stars than you thought possible while making s'mores on the stone fire pit.

ABOUT THE HOUSE
Decorated in lodge style, the house is furnished with everything you need, from a fully stocked kitchen to linens and towels. Although hardly ever needed, we also have AC! The house has 2 floors and a huge deck, 12 foot deep deck.
The top level features over 1700 sf of living space, plus a huge deck overlooking the meadows and the surrounding mountains. The views are outstanding, spanning from Cherry Mountain to Mt Washington to the slopes of Bretton Woods. A 2-person sauna will warm you after a day of hiking or skiing (or a dip in the river!), and we offer complimentary high-speed wifi and a huge library of on-demand movies and shows from Amazon Prime, HBO, Netflix, etc, plus live cable TV.
You will come in from the front door, which is located on the meadows side. As you walk in, a mudroom provides a convenient place to take your shoes off and leave your jackets. From there, you will have the living room on your left, and the sunny "reading room" on your right.
LIVING ROOM/DINING ROOM/KITCHEN
To the left as you walk in, you will find the open concept living/dining room and kitchen. The living room features a complete set of log futons, which double as sleeping space if needed; the sofa opens up to a queen bed, the love seat to a full bed, and the chair to a small bed, great for a little kid. The TV is equipped with Roku, which will give you access to tons of live and on-demand programming including cable TV, HBO, Hulu, Netflix and Amazon, plus hundreds of other channels. The oversized patio doors let you soak in the views and bring sunlight all day long, and a gas-powered wood stove keeps you warm and cozy. The large kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, and a Weber grill on the deck is a fantastic way to end a summer day.
To the right of the mudroom as you walk in is a spacious family room, which has a queen sized futon and an electric fireplace. A great spot for the kids to play, or to sit down and read a book while enjoying the views and checking for wildlife in the meadows. Of course, the queen sized futon also offers additional sleeping space for the larger groups.
The large master bedroom features huge sliders onto the deck and great views, and a private master bathroom with jetted Jacuzzi tub and separate shower area. The bed is queen sized, log style.
The additional 2 guestrooms on this floor feature a queen bed, and a twin over futon respectively, giving a total of 5 comfortable sleeping spaces.
The 2-person infrared sauna is a fantastic way to warm up at the end of a ski day, or to take care of your sore muscles at the end of a long hike or a day swimming in the river.
A huge, 12 foot wide deck wraps around the house to give you even more places to soak in your incredible surroundings from. It's the perfect spot for an afternoon drink or a morning coffee!
THE LOWER LEVEL
The downstairs provides an additional 2 bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed plus a twin bed, one with a full over full bunk plus a queen bed. In addition, there is a futon that sleeps an additional 2 people. While a lower level, you still get full sized windows that let you enjoy partial views, and you also have access to a TV room with a full set of living room furniture, an extra kitchen and a POOL TABLE!
