About Lao and Harlan McCanne

Harlan and Lao live in Scituate, MA with their two children. We enjoy living near the ocean but are excited to get away to the mountains and skiing as much as possible. When we can't be in Waterville we hope families and friends can enjoy the area while calling our condo home base.

Lao and Harlan McCanne purchased this condo in 2013

Why Lao and Harlan McCanne chose Waterville Valley Area

After only two visits to Waterville Valley we realized very quickly that we wanted to be a part of the community. It has a magical feel, set in the middle of the White Mountains, amidst hiking trails, skiing, rivers and more while also providing the convenience of Town Square with it's restaurants, shops, ice skating, and so so much more. And who can forget the WMAC, the athletic club with it's pools, hot tubs, tennis, fitness area, and more. It's all here. Come see for yourself!

What makes this condo unique

We chose Mad River Condos and this unit in particular because it has a wonderful feel. With views of the mountains and the rushing Mad River below and all the natural light flooding in, we knew right away it was the place we wanted to call our home away from home.

Wonderfull Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two night at the beginning of October. We are two couples with young kids. The house was clean and well organized, with enough space for everyone to feel comfortable. We had everything we needed in hand, with lots of peace and quiet too. Great location, good kitchen, a nice balcony for having a cup of tea, great loft with bunk beds for the kids. We were happy with the simplicity of the house (no silly decorations!) and Lao was available for every questions we had. This was our best experience in renting a vacation home. Thank you very much Lao!

Great condo in Waterville Valley

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable condo. Clean. Nice view of woods and a bit of mountain from balcony. Kitchen well equipped. Loft with bunk beds would be great for a bunch of kids. We are a 60 something couple, our adult daughters and a 9 month old baby. (Spouse of the one with the baby was unable to come at the last minute but there was plenty of room for him.)

Very quiet in June. Easy walk to Town Square and red clay tennis courts. We enjoyed not having to drive everywhere. Good hiking. Our daughters saw a moose on the trail. Great for bicycle riders. We kayaked around the small pond in Town Square. Used White Mountain Athletic Club pool on hot days (outdoors) and rainy day indoors, with 9 month old grandchild using kiddy pool.

Lao was very available via text/email to solve some issues (turning the heat off completely in the June heat). It cooled down well at night. She was also very available and responsive during the inquiry and pre-stay process. Great family place to relax!

Wonderfully appointed comfortable condo with all the comforts of home. Great location --- close to everything (short walk thru wooded trails or on the road) yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town square that there is peace and tranquility. Lao was wonderful to work with --- very communicative and flexible. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Great Winter Wonderland Break!

  • 5 of 5

This condo rental was everything the listing promised it would be - convenient, comfortable, clean... The mountain shuttle at the end of the driveway brought us back and forth to skiing with no parking hassles to worry about. Restaurants & shoppes on the Town Square were just a short walk away.... we parked our car on arrival, and didn't move it until departure. Lao was accessible and efficient to work with; highly recommend!
