About Heather Johnson

Our parents bought this land, designed and built this home around 1971. We commuted to Jackson from Marblehead, MA almost every weekend during ski season and spent many summers here growing up. Our family moved here in 1977 full time and built on a large addition with extra bedrooms and deck. Our first time skiing was across the street at Black Mountain- at age 3. Actually 3 generations of family have grown up skiing at Black Mt. We learned to love swimming in the ice cold rivers and found some great swimming holes to visit. Now many years later, my sister and I call this our 2nd home/part-time rental. In 2011-2012 this house underwent a complete top-to-bottom rehab with all new paint, carpet, lighting, flooring, appliances, furniture and more. We ski, hike, walk, swim, eat out and see friends in and around the Jackson area. It's a place we love to come to for fun and relaxing and are sad when we have to leave.

Why Heather Johnson chose White Mountains

What makes this house unique

If your 'to do' list is long, then you might find that the fresh country air is what you need to relax and rejuvenate. Kick back on the deck or watch the day go by from the Adirondack chairs and see how fun it is 'to do' nothing! Don't be surprised if you sleep like a log. The babbling brook will lull you to sleep.

Great weekend for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at the Jackson House. It was clean, perfectly located and a complete joy. Plenty of beds and room for all, but still a nice cozy feel. Our kids especially enjoyed the lower back yard and creek! We would definitely book again. Thanks!

Beautiful House for a family trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Jackson home for a long weekend in August. The house is beautiful and central to everything in the area. Everything was clean, there were condiments in the kitchen, extra essentials for the bathrooms, plenty of towels and linens. The yard all the way down to the brook was picture perfect! This was a long weekend family trip, and we are already talking about renting this same house for next years trip! Thank you Heather!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautifully unique home. The house was clean and fully supplied, and the surroundings were so peaceful! The location couldn't have been better- minutes to Jackson falls, numerous hiking trails and all of the North Conway amenities. It was eally amazing place for our two families to share an awesome summer vacation. We can only imagine how great this place must be in the winter!!

excellent location. super clean. well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

Heather was extremely responsive and helpful before, during, and after our stay. We've been visiting the Mt. Washington valley since 1982 and have stayed at approximately twenty different rental properties, this is one is easily the cleanest and most well stocked.

The floor plan is unique and the property is well suited to families, families with young children, couples, and girls/guys weekends. Part of the unique floor plan is the bathrooms have limited ventilation but this is easily remedied with a strategically placed fan.

The location is superb. It's off the beaten path but still convenient to everything. It's less than 5 minutes to downtown Jackson, 10-15 minutes from downtown North Conway and 5 minutes from Story Land. Make sure you take a stroll down to the Shovel Handle Pub, it's some of the best food in the Valley and there is often times live music on the weekends.

The property has a fantastic stream outback that is shallow enough for the little ones to play safely. Make sure you bring apples for the horses across the street, they love them!

If you're anything like me you've got 10 places on your short list and you're suffering paralysis by analysis. Stop torturing yourself and email Heather, you won't be disappointed.
