Guestbook comments from the manager

Lisa & Sue,

I wanted to take a minute to thank you both for a wonderful weekend! We had a fabulous time. The house was beautiful, warm and cozy. We were so happy to meet Susan, and the girls had a nice night of chatter on our final night Wewere so sorry to hear about Susan's sister passing. I hope that the few hours spent with Cheryl and Linda helped her in some small way. Thanks also for allowing us the opportunity to wait out the storm, the extra day helped as we were able to fly home on dry roads. Other who panicked were much less fortunate and spent several extra hours on the road home. Your hospitality was greatly appreciated. The constant snow just added a note of magic to the whole weekend, as well as allowing us to meet your friends Jamie and Jamie Jr. All in all it was truly a Great North Woods weekend. We hopefully look forward to returning, maybe even in the fall.

All our best,

Mark & Linda Pecci (and the gang)

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful experience my 3 sisters and I had at Riverside Farm. From the moment we arrived (which was ll PM in pouring rain from Boston A/P) Lisa greeted us, and could not do enough to make our stay one of the most memorable we have experienced. Starting with the delicious coffee cake awaiting us the next morning, to the "Sisters High Noon Tea" I had pre-arranged with Lisa and her Mom, Sue, as a surprise for my sisters, it was so much more than I had expected. If you go to this delightful farmhouse, you must arrange for Lisa and her Mom to cook a meal or two for you - they are both superb cooks! The rooms are large, beds very comfortable, kitchen is huge, and the scenery out back is beautiful - especially for us Florida gals! There is a covered bridge down the road, the town of Littleton is near by and great for a day of shopping, and the town of Lancaster even has a movie theater! We four sisters felt like we had acquired two more sisters by the time we left - will definitely be returning!

1st Experience

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend that you go and try this beautiful property. This was the 1st time in a long time where I felt like I was back in the south. The home is beautiful and the hospitality from the 1st email to the last day of your stay is nothing short of amazing. You will feel like it's home. The scenary was beautiful and if you are are an early bird like me I recommend sitting on the back deck with a cup of tea. There are things to do with the kids like we went to Forest State park and to the drive in and had a blast. Just walking the backyard was fun. The pictures you can take are beautiful. This was a great first experience. I have never tried to rent a home for the weekend but it was well worth it.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
Lisa and Sue,
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in your beautifull home. Our favorite thing was to just sit on the rear deck and enjoy the view and during the evening just staring up at all the stars was absolutely breath taking. The homemade blueberry muffins were delicious. And Sue was a great host, there when we needed her and other than that she left us to our privacy.
Thank You,
Ernie and Carol

HI Lisa,

I just wanted to thank you again. Your home is beautiful and your Mom, Sue, was so sweet. The carrot cake cupcakes were decadent! We didn’t want to leave, especially our dog. She flat out REFUSED to get in the car! The only time she has ever done that in the year that we’ve had her. I couldn’t blame her though, we didn’t want to either.

Thank you again for sharing your slice of heaven with my family and friends,

Magnificent Home

  • 5 of 5
I am a frequent vacation renter and I can only say that this home is without a doubt the best property I have ever rented. I have payed 3 times as much per night for other rentals and they dont even come close to this home. It is PERFECT in every way. It shines without a doubt! Thanks so much Lisa for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. The snowmobiling was the best ever!

Wonderfull Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I rented this house for Labor Day weekend and were blown away. He grew up in Berlin, NH and we wanted to rent a house to invite his HUGE family over for a family get-together. Not only was there enough room, but the HUGE backyard was such a bonus. Everyone commented how the house was inviting and had everything we ever needed. Since we will be coming to NH often, we def will rent this beautiful house again. Gina Plus my dog Audrey had a blast ruuning around in the backyard. We live in the city, so if was a treat :)
