This house was great! Everything was clean and new for us when we arrived. Cynthia was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. You can tell she takes pride in ownership of this house, it certainly shows. The brook out back is beautiful, such a great spot. I loved that there is no cell reception, it really gave us all a chance to disconnect from everything and enjoy our time together.

Relaxing, Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Cynthia helped make our little time away, smooth and easy! The house is adorable, beautiful much to do around the area, but you might not want to leave the house/brook/property to do anything else! Can't wait to come back. Thanks so much! :)

Wonderful relaxing vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult daughter and 2 dogs and I stayed at the house for a week in August. Our other 2 adult children visited as well. We had a wonderful vacation, and really enjoyed the waterfalls and brook. Our dogs especially loved splashing and playing on the sandy beach. The brook had ample running water when we arrived. Midweek, we had a day of rain, which quickly replenished the waterfalls, making for big changes, much faster water and awesome sights. We enjoyed exploring up the brook as well. We hiked almost every day. Rattlesnake Mountain, Cardigan Mountain, Stinson Mountain and the Quincy Bog Trail were maybe our favorites. We loved the pizza at the Tavern in Rumney. Ripple Pottery on Rte. 25 had lovely handicrafts for sale. There is also a good quilt store and a nice yarn shop on Rte. 25. Cindy and Bob were easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions. We really enjoyed our vacation!

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to have a relaxing vacation. The waterfall is awesome. You can hear it from the downstairs bedroom and the deck. Cindy, the owner was wonderful and responded quickly to my emails about bringing my elderly dog. He had a wonderful time and loved the river. The house is quite lovely and well maintained and had everything you needed for a vacation. The front of the house is close to the road, so you do hear traffic occasionally, but it is not a distraction at all. And be sure to use the fire pit by the river- it's great. We will definitely be coming back again.
