The sleepy bear lodge is a beautiful home - even bigger than it looks in the pictures with amazing mountain views right from the deck. The house was immaculate when we arrived and is the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prepare your meals. It has a great location convenient to the White Mountains and Franconia Notch State Park. We had a great week there and would love to come back!

This house is absolutely stunning! Very clean and well kept...even the garage was clean!! The amount of attention that went into every little detail of this house is mind blowing! The view was absolutely gorgeous! Plenty of room for 12 people!!! We took our 3 adult children and a few of their friends! They can’t stop talking about it! The yard is huge... perfect for our outdoor games! The campfire was a perfect place to sit and enjoy the millions of stars the sky! This house is even more beautiful in person! OMG I would definitely recommend staying there!!!

Second year we stayed at Sleepy Bear for a 4 night ski trip. Love the house, the location, and the views. Great living areas and kitchen. Very comfortable for 10, but not bad for 11 or 12 if some singles or kids along.
Lindsay A. Mar 2020
The house was perfect for our group and close to Cannon mountain for skiing. The kitchen is very well equipped and the views are so beautiful! We would definitely stay again.

Conveniently located just minutes off the highway in a remote location with easy access to Littleton markets and hiking trail heads. Cabin is extremely comfortable with spectacular views

We absolutely loved our stay at Sleepy Bear Lodge. The home and the views where breathtaking and more beautiful than we could have imagined. We hope to make this an annual visit.

I look forward to staying here every year. Loved some of the outdoor upgrades and the conveince of going right to the house for check in. However, with that, I did miss seeing Cort this year. I can't wait to stay again!!!!

Sleepy Bear Lodge is an exceptional vacation property. The views are stunning, the house is beautiful, and the location is perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. Upon arrival, the house was absolutely spotless - perhaps the cleanest place we have ever stayed! Everything we would need was provided for, although we did have to run out and re-stock some basics midweek (paper towels, TP, dish soap). NOTE: The driveway is steep. After snowing 18" in 24hrs, we were fine with a Subaru & snow tires, other guests were not so fortunate! We would stay here again in a heartbeat and don't hesitate to recommend Sleepy Bear Lodge as one of the premier vacation properties in the White Mountains. You will not be disappointed!

The home is well stocked with everything you need for your stay. The views are lovely and the silence is golden. The bedrooms are spacious and baths are very nice. There is hiking all over and many attractions to visit. Make sure you visit Polly’s Pancake Parlor & Cold Mountain Cafe if you’re eating out.

Fantastic! The lodge was incredible! Great vacation!
Joel T. Jun 2018
Two families (10 of us, all adults) shared Sleepy Bear Lodge to attend a wedding in Franconia, as the cousins all wanted to hang out together rather than be in separate places. It was a fantastic weekend at a great property! The lodge is spacious and immaculate with a large deck on the back side of the house overlooking the mountains. The basement is newly renovated and everyone had plenty of room to move or to have privacy as needed. It was within easy driving distance of area attractions in addition to where we needed to be for the wedding. We all loved this place and would stay here again if back in the area. Highly recommended!

We stayed for 3 days in February and had a blast. The house will take your breath away both inside and out. It was very well furnished and we felt so at home. We simply fell in love with just sitting on the couch watching the fire and looking around this amazing house and property

My family had the most relaxing vacation at Sleepy Bear Lodge! The lodge itself is beautiful with wonderfully comfortable beds, a lovely gas fireplace and a kitchen equipped for all cooking needs. And the view is amazing!! The property manager was incredibly helpful and accomodating. We hope to be back next year!

We rented the Sleepy Bear Lodge the week of my daughters wedding and we couldn't have been happier! It's a beautiful, comfortable place that made us feel right at home during a busy but happy time! The wonderful decor fits the log cabin well and there are many unique touches! We loved the open concept, which made visits from our family very comfortable and allowed us to enjoy special meals together. And the view is spectacular! I would highly recommend renting the Sleepy Bear Lodge!

Absolutely stunning! The home was spotless and had everything we needed to have a truly relaxing and wonderful family vacation. We could not have asked for more. There were beautiful views and abundant wildlife. We enjoyed seeing a porcupine and wild turkeys several times in the backyard. Most exciting was watching from the front porch as a black bear walked right across the driveway and through the front lawn. If you want a slower pace with beautiful scenery and a gorgeous well appointed home...this is the place to call home for a week. I would not hesitate to stay here again if ever in the area.
