Landmark home with incredible mountain views, saltwater pool & hot tub

Breathtaking views of Mt. Lafayette, Cannon Mountain, and - on a clear day - Mt. Washington await at this storied Franconia home, an unforgettable place to experience the beauty of the White Mountains. Enjoy your very own saltwater inground pool, private hot tub to soak in at sunset, and gorgeous living spaces full of history, comfort, and entertainment.

This two-story home sits on a parcel of land once owned by Robert Frost; it was later sold to his protege, Raymond Holden, who built the house itself. The setting is secluded, up a 1/4 mile private drive) and incredibly special, overlooking the Presidential and Kinsman Ranges and Franconia Notch to the east. It's a short, scenic drive to Franconia Notch State Park (six miles), the Kancamagus Highway (19 miles), and the slopes of Cannon (six miles), Bretton Woods (20 miles), and Loon Mountain (21 miles).

You'll spend much of your time here in the beautiful outdoor spaces, whether you're watching your kids splash in the pool all summer or sled in the perfectly sloped yard come winter. Host barbecues on the gas grill, roast marshmallows around the firepit, and marvel at how the setting sun illuminates Mt. Lafayette.

There's a palpable sense of history throughout the house (including photos and an extensive written account), but especially in the great room with its timber ceiling, gorgeous fireplace, and century-old baby grand piano (which is tuned and playable!). It's the perfect spot to curl up and stream movies, read a good book, or work on a puzzle with your children on a rainy day.

Prepare meals together in a kitchen that's been outfitted by an enthusiastic home cook, complete with stainless steel appliances and knives and tools that are rarely supplied in rental properties. There's also a light-filled dining room and a sun room for after-dinner fun, offering foosball, darts, another TV, and all sorts of games.

You'll sleep soundly (and comfortably, thanks to a brand-new mini-split AC and heating system) in eight bedrooms, all with memory foam mattresses and plush microfiber blankets. In the south wing of the house, there are two bedrooms downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs; in the north wing, you'll find three bedrooms upstairs. High-speed WiFi, a washer/dryer, and two single kayaks are also provided for your use.
