Space 1,100 sq ft
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

Our family condo features a fully equipped kitchen, wood stove, outdoor fire-pit (seasonal), and outdoor shower (seasonal). Main level (first floor) has 1 full bath and 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed. Second/upper level loft bedroom has 1 queen bed and 1 full bed, with skylight & bath with shower. Great for families -- lower level for parents, upper level for kids!

In warm weather, relax on our deck or in our hammock as you watch the hummingbirds buzzing around Crawford Pond. Cool off in the glorious outdoor shower. In cooler weather, enjoy our cozy wood burning stove after a day of leaf-peeping, skiing, or ice skating on the pond.

The loft bedroom is quite private - it comprises the entire second floor and is not an open loft.

Bonus baby & kid items include: pack n play (you'll need to bring your pack n play sheets), booster seat with tray, stroller, hiking pack, kids books & toys, etc.

WIFI internet included.

NOTE: Rates include $100 cleaning fee.

PETS: $35 per dog per night. Two dog limit. No cats. Please leave dogs who like to bark a lot at home or you may risk having to kennel your pet while here.

Area Description: The home sits right on a small pond, and is very close to Route 302. Swimming in the Saco River or Echo lake is 10-15 minutes away via car. The area is very peaceful, private, and quiet. Attitash is only a mile away. Storyland is 4 miles away. Bretton Woods, Wildcat, and Cranmore, are 15-30 minute rides.

Our association consists of five buildings surrounding the pond. Each building has two units, for a total of ten.

Other Info: 1 mile from Attistash, where you can ski in the winter, waterslide and tube in the summer. 10 minutes to North Conway and Mt. Cranmore (skiing). Wade in our pond or take a quick trip to Echo Lake, or the Saco River for swimming. The house is located in a wooded area, so your kids will enjoy 'exploring' and catching frogs and tadpoles. Also, there is a large grassy area across from the house -- perfect for ballgames and picnics. Upstairs loft is air conditioned -- lower level has fans.

Nature at its best: Relax as you gaze out at the pond and mountains beyond. In the summer, enjoy the wild strawberries, blackberries, and hummingbirds. In winter, skate on the pond (make sure it's frozen!)

**Sorry, we do not offer seasonal rentals. In July or August, we generally only rent full weeks or weekdays.

**Pet fee: $35 per pet per night.

**Once you are paid in full, 3-5 days prior to check-in, we will email you directions / info about the house, as well as the key code.

**Security deposit returned 14 business days after check-out as long as no damage has occured.**

About Melissa and Pete Dunn

We are a family of five. We live in Boston, but love spending quality family time together swimming at the Saco, skiing at Wildcat, dining out at one of the many local restaurants, or just relaxing at our retreat.

Melissa and Pete Dunn purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Melissa and Pete Dunn chose Bartlett

We wanted a place where we could escape the hustle and bustle of the big city, enjoy the fresh air, and remove ourselves from technology.

What makes this townhome unique

There is nothing quite like waking up to the view of Crawford Pond, with the mountains behind it. It has the most calming, peaceful, blood-pressure decreasing effect.

Great vacations

  • 4 of 5

We went there for 2 nights, everything was clean and the place is well maintained. The condo is larger than it appears ! The upstairs loft is large and beautiful. The price is very reasonable and dealing with owners was easy. I will surely return again and recommend to my friends.

A nice place to go out is the Red Parka Pub a few miles away, staff was very friendly and helpful.

Woodsy retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cute and cozy. The Dunn's home is warm and welcoming and has plenty of room for a large family. They are minutes from Attitash, Storyland and other attractions. It is a perfect woodsy retreat.

Location can not be beat. We enjoyed ourselves immensely with Attitash a mile away.

  • 4 of 5

The house was a bit smaller than we had expected, but adequate for our needs. Came with everything we could want. Love having a W/D on premises. The Dunn's were super easy to communicate with and helpful.

Nice, quiet and everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice "cottage" with all the amenities we needed. Lots of different sleeping arrangement possible and a fully equipped kitchen with a nice outdoor deck for eating. Lots of toys for young children with the option of tadpole watching in the pond. Close to Storyland and the Cog Railroad and many hiking opportunities. We had a great time.

Cozy vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy and clean, had everything we needed ( even for kids) and close to everything. It was in a quiet area but not too secluded. Although this home is not very large it comfortably accommodated 6 adults and 2 kids plus 2 dogs. The loft area was spacious and is a perfect play area for kids. We look forward to a return visit. The owner was very easy to deal with and quick to respond.

The home sits on Crawford Pond, and is right off of Route 302. The Saco River is about a 5 minute walk and good swimming is about a 5 minute drive. The pond is manmade, and not really suitable for swimming, but is great for your little ones to wade and play. The area is very peaceful, private, and quiet. Our association consists of five buildings surrounding the pond. Each building has two units, for a total of ten. Attitash, for winter skiing as well as summer fun, is only a mile away and Storyland is 4 miles away. Outlet shopping is 10 minutes away and Bretton Woods, Wildcat, and Cranmore, are within a 15-30 minute ride. Fantastic restaurants are within a couple of miles.
