The SpaceThe house is so close to Lake Gardner that kids can often be found fishing for smallmouth bass right from the large wrap around deck while adults relax nearby from the comfort of Adirondack chairs. Inside you'll find an open floor plan with a fully appointed kitchen (utensils, cookware, blender, spices, toaster oven, coffee maker, oven, range...), a dining area, and a living area. Whether you wish to stay lakeside for the day or go on an adventure, it is nice to come home and throw in a DVD or catch up on what is going on in the world on the 32' flat screen. There is surely a game for everyone to enjoy in our fully stocked game closet. S'mores and ghost stories are always a treat and the amphitheater-style natural stone seating that surrounds our fire pit adds to the experience. Come bedtime, one upstairs bedroom has a bunk bed with a full size bed on the bottom and twin on top while the master has a king sized bed. There is also a pull out couch downstairs if needed. If you leave the curtains open, you can fall asleep looking at the stars and wake up to watch the steam rising off the water as the sun rises above the mountains. Linens and towels are available but we simply ask that if you use them that you kindly wash them in the on site washer and dryer before you leave. We hope that you and your family will come experience the best that the White Mountain's have to offer. Guest AccessWe just keep a closet upstairs locked that has some personal belongings in it but other than that the entire house is open for your enjoyment. Interaction with GuestsWe are a quick call away but since this is our second home we won't be there when you are. The NeighborhoodBig kids, or big kids at heart, can dive in from the end of the dock and with a deep breath just might be able to make the swim underwater all the way to the private raft. Smaller children, and those that like to ease themselves into the cooler waters, can wade into the clean, spring-fed lake from the shoreline. Take the canoe or the kayak out for a paddle around the lake and you might be fortunate enough to site bald eagles, ospreys, loon and other water fowl. If you want nature to do all of the work then just take a quick trip to the center of Bath NH, grab your beverage of choice at the Bath General Store (the oldest in the country), walk across the covered bridge, and drop your butt in a inner tube and take a leisurely journey down the Ammonoosuc River. There is a dirt road that runs along the river which makes for a great mountain bike ride. Deer, turkey, moose and black bear call the White Mountains their home so bring your camera if you decide to take a drive or hike any of the nearby trails. The Appalachian Trail is nearby but fortunately, since not everyone is game for a 2175 mile hike, there are plenty of tamer options including the famed Lost River Caves and Franconia Notch (both within 30-40 mins away). The Cannon Aerial Tram is an easier way to get to the top and offers gorgeous views without the thigh burn. Walk around the grounds and pick blue, red and black berries or go to a nearby farm such as Windy Ridge Orchard and check out the local produce and the animals. Apple picking starts late August but berries are in season earlier. If you prefer to leave the cooking to others there are several top rated options nearby for evening the most discerning of tastes. Polly's Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill, Colatina's Exit in Bradford, and Woodstock Station are all highly rated and delicious. This prime location has modern conveniences like grocery stores, restaurants, etc.. within 5-10 minutes from the house as well as more traditional New England sites such as country stores, covered bridges (we have 3 in Bath), antique shops, waterfalls, farm stands, apple orchards, fairs and more. The entertainment varies from mini golf to challenging 18 hole courses, amusement parks including Clark's Trading Post, Whale's Tale Water Park and Santa's Village, and even the longest candy counter in the world at Chutter's in Lincoln. Getting AroundThis is a house in the woods. The road in is made of dirt. There is no public transportation so you'll either need to hoof it or find yourself a car.

Apple picking starts late August but berries are in season earlier. If you enjoy craft brews then you'll want to stop at either Schilling Beer Company in Littleton or Woodstock Station in Woodstock on your trip back to the house. After soaking in nature for the day it is always comforting to come home to a fully stocked kitchen and cook up a feast. If you prefer to leave the cooking to others there are several top rated options nearby for evening the most discerning of tastes.

A free day of entertainment is also a possibility if you take the tubes under the house and put in at the covered bridge in Bath and take a leisurely journey down the Ammonoosuc River. The take out is just down the road at the farmer's field. There is a dirt road that runs along the river which makes for a great mountain bike ride. It will also give you an excuse for buying that big 4-wheel drive vehicle even though you normally use it for commuting and driving kids around to various activities.

Surrounded by nature and the Connecticut River, you'll quickly find the home and the area relaxing. This is a perfect location for those looking to enjoy fall foliage surrounded by the beautiful fall colors. We recently renovated this 2 story home which was built in the 1920's.

The rest of the main floor includes a formal dining area and 2 living rooms with televisions and with chimneys that open up to a screened in porch which is perfect for enjoying nature while sipping coffee or wine.

Upstairs there are 2 additional bedrooms with the first having a twin trundle bed which can be used as 2 twin beds or put together to make a king size bed. Down the hall, there's an additional bedroom with a queen size bed and another 1 full bathroom. Each bathroom has claw foot tubs that were original the home and perfect for soaking. If you're not into baths, no worries, the tubs also include a stand-up shower. In the basement, there is a washer and dryer, and renters have access to equipment such as children's bikes, tubes and tents. Outside enjoy the fire pit, tree swings, picnic table, or play a game of badminton. For those looking to enjoy nature even more, feel free to use the air mattresses and sleep on the porch or set up the tent anywhere on the 3 acre property. On a typical day, you'll see chipmunks, a variety of birds, and deer on the property. Occasionally, you may spy a fox or moose as well.
