Notch Lodge, very cozy, clean and a great location. It has everything you need. The views were spectacular. We were able to bring “ greatest pup ever” Dublin, our French Bulldog. We enjoyed our early morning walks up Ridge Road where we watched the deers playing in the field and listened to nature’s whispers. We also saw the house of poet Robert Frost “Frost House”. We are looking forward to coming back and skiing at Cannon Mountain. Only downside of the trip is that we didn’t make it long enough. What a great place!

First, the good. The view definitely looked better online but it was nice to sit and drink a cup of coffee on the deck looking at the mountains. The beds were comfortable and they had enough towel sets for multiple days.
They leave you with a wine opener and deck of cards which I thought was a nice touch. I wish they put that money towards real paper towels and a bottle of some cleaning spray. The house was decent but needs a few things.
Why I personally wouldn’t stay there again.
During the pandemic I feel as though the top blankets should be clean. They were not. I did laundry for the first 4 hours of being there.
Also, dishes and glasses were dirty so I went and bought paper and plastic to be safe.
The grill had chicken on it from the previous renters and The propane would not turn on. The jogger going by as I struggled with it for a while even tried to help. Broken.
The house was super dark at night and it was hard to eat dinner at the table. They need more lighting for sure. Also the Mountain View window should be cleaned between renters. There was finger prints all over the glass.
No cleaning products to be found except a couple of really old dirty looking bottles under the sink. I went and got everything I needed for the house including paper towels because the ones they had fell apart with water.
The house smells of moth balls really bad. I couldn’t stop sneezing in the laundry area especially.
The worst part- every morning we got up for sunrise except Tuesday which was our day to sleep in. It was so hot in the house so we left the windows open. We were woken up at 8am by a very loud lawn mower and dirt blowing in the windows. So that was fun.
With the lack of light in the family room and lack of things to do it would be nice if they had a fire pit so there is something for families after dark. Just my opinion.
I called shorty after to ask if we can check out an hour later so we can grab our stuff after the hike and they said no. 10am is a pretty early check out, especially with a late 4pm check in. I could understand if they were deep cleaning everything but that was not the case at all.
Anyways, I won’t stay here again. However, it’s not unmanageable for a short stay.

Bring cleaning products with you! :)

Lots of room to spread out, plus everything needed to cook great family meals was there. Nice to be able to bring the dog too!
We had a great time.

Everything we needed was there for our cooking and eating. No need to bring anything! Near the mountains with lots to do and many nice restaurants nearby. Clean and comfortable. Would rent again.

Very pleasant cottage and super clean. Convenient location and quiet. Rustic furnishings but updated kitchen and baths. Priced a little high but maybe because it was the start of foliage season. Electric heat worked well except for one bedroom. Seems as though the owners use it for a ski camp.

I stayed here with 3 friends for 4 nights and we loved it. There was plenty of room in the public areas to sit/lay back and relax. The bedrooms were spacious with plenty of closet space. The kitchen was fully equipped for cooking. Overall, it was very nice, not run down, pretty modern, but still keeping a nice almost cabin-like feel with the wood furniture.

So comfortable, spacious, cozy and felt like home, have privacy but not located away from civilization. It had everything we needed and more. My mom really loved all the small details and decor of the property! She was very surprised and pleased while on her birthday/mother's day weekend. More than satisfied. It's pet friendly too
