A-Frame w/ firepit, fireplace, AC & kayaks - walk to the beach, 1 dog welcome!

Cozy, inviting, and perfectly atmospheric, this two-bedroom A-frame chalet sits just a few minutes' walk from Thusis Beach on the south shore of Pea Porridge Pond. You'll be in the midst of it all - hiking and snowmobile trails, ski slopes, fall foliage drives, boating, and swimming - with beautiful pine walls, a gas-log stove, and a quiet, comfortable living space to come home to each day. Use the provided kayaks and life jackets to get out on the water each morning, returning home for a mug of coffee or cocoa outside on the deck and breakfast prepared in the fully appointed kitchen. Spend your evenings gathering around the seasonal firepit to roast marshmallows with your loved ones or snuggling up inside for a game of cards and a movie by the fire in the living room.

What's nearby:
You'll find this home on the south side of Pea Porridge Pond, within walking distance of Thusis Beach - one of the five sandy association beaches in the immediate area. When you're not exploring Little, Middle, and Big Pea Porridge Pond by kayak, you'll be less than five miles south of downtown Conway, where you can meet up with the iconic Kancamagus Highway for a spectacular foliage drive in autumn. If you're visiting in winter, you'll have your choice of nearby ski slopes, including King Pine (eight miles south), Cranmore (11 miles north), and Attitash (18 miles northwest). You'll also be a few minutes' drive from the Conway Scenic Railroad and a wealth of tax-free outlet shopping in Conway and North Conway.

It were a good time.5*

Very cute house, had just enough wares to get us through four days! The hot water only lasts a few mins in the shower though. Gas fireplace was super inconvenient to light but the electric heat was very user friendly so we just used that. Perfect for a small family or group. Baby friendly. Just enough room in the bedroom for a pack n play.

Very comfortable, great size for a small group. Feels very secluded and has a great size kitchen for cooking! We brought some extra blankets reading other reviews... but was cozy for our stay despite the 2 degree temps outside. Would stay here again!

My husband and I had a great time staying at this property. The A frame was charming and rustic while still being very clean and comfortable. The pantry was well stocked with spices which was a pleasant surprise and Shaw’s is a quick 15 minute drive. We made good use of the grill and fire pit outside. There are neighbors close by but the abundant trees made it feel private and secluded. It’s super close to some beautiful trails/hikes off the Kancamangus highway and North Conway. Be sure to bring your own toiletries for the shower and perhaps an extra blanket or two if renting in the winter. We were comfortable just the two of us but could also see us enjoying this place with another couple. It was the exact kind of relaxing getaway we were hoping for! We would absolutely rent this property again.

This A-frame house was absolutely perfect for our stay! We were looking for a small rental that was dog friendly and felt comfortable to spend time in relaxing. The rental was very clean, provided clear instructions on check-in and check-out, and all communications were answered very quickly. The rental was close to the hiking trails we were looking for and just a quick drive to North Conway! We would absolutely stay here again! Thank you!

Unit was in a great location close to a small private beach. Close to Conway/North Conway and all it offers.

Cute a frame in an even cuter community! Great amenities. We would definitely stay again.

Great location and awesome vibe in this little A-Frame.
Brenda G. Aug 2018
This little A-frame was perfect for a 3 day get away. Close enough for shopping should you choose to do that yet just far enough away for peace and quiet.When we walked through the door the place was nice and clean, the kitchen stocked with everything we would need for food prep. We did opt to bring our own linens,and making the bed upstairs was a bit of a challenge due to the A frame style. A little patience and I got it done.It was great that it had a gas grill with a spare tank (thank you). You do need to be mindful of the stairs as you near the dining table (heads got bumped) After having read the other things people had written I noticed nothing was mentioned about the water pump. It is loud so try not to spend to much time in the bathroom when it kicks on.That being said we`d definitely venture back and happily stay in this cute A-frame again. We`d love to sit by the fire pit with some wine on the next trip.

Cute clean house, perfect for my weekend getaway

The rental was very clean and very close to everything we wanted to do.

We stayed here in October during peak foliage. Everything about our stay was great. The cottage was immaculately clean, and there were very clear instructions about how to work everything. The little lake, only a couple minutes walk from the house, is clean and quiet (no motor boats!). Great for kayaking. We appreciated having kayaks on site so we didn`t need to haul ours from home. The place is just far enough away from the frantic pace of North Conway but close enough to easily access the Whites. The only thing that could improve the cottage would be a washer and dryer. The faucet water was very good - no need to bring in bottles.We would highly recommend this place for a couple or small family. No view as it is surrounded by woods, but the lake is very near. Thumbs up!!

Charming litte cabin set off a dirt road but not too far from downtown North Conway. Perfect for a family of 2. We miss is already!

it was very nice and just like described.
Kelly W. Aug 2017
nice, quiet, private fun getaway spot. Simple amenities and some recent updates made our stay pleasant. Unit could have benefited from a bit more cleaning, but generally it was in good shape. Extra blankets, bed covers and some random (junk items-broken window fan) were thrown randomly onto floor of downstairs bedroom, and a bath rug or two would have been nice. Would return to this property if we are in the area again and may rent for ski season. Glad it was dog friendly and well maintained.

We had a great time in the little A frame house and like to come back next year. Thank you for your hospitality we felt welcome in the home. This is our second time there. We noticed some different furniture and other things in the home. The big air purifier behind the futon was gone. This is a wonderful place to relax, and to go swimming, kayaking, sightseeing and hiking. Just one suggestion, please provide a broom and dust pin as we like to keep the kitchen and bathroom clean of sand from outside. We went and bought our own to keep it clean.

Awesome, very cozy and comfortable rental home
Kimberly L. Jul 2017
Overall, we had a great stay. The cabin was clean and close to amenities.
Dede T. Jul 2017
We stayed here in early July (5 + 2 dogs). The home was just as shown in the pics and was clean and spacious. There is a sandy shore private beach on the pond just a short walk away. My boys (late teens) loved kayaking there and caught lots of fish. Central air was a plus! Only complaint is that all the bar seats and bookshelf were loose & wobbly; we couldn`t find anything to tighten them, so couldn`t use them. Due to recent storms, there were large ruts in the dirt driveway - we were able to get up & down ok in trucks, but not sure a smaller car could easily do so. Overall we enjoyed the home and our stay.
Amy O. Jul 2017
The place was great. Clean, neat, beds were comfrontable and quite. The cabin was an ideal spot for a quite get away. It`s in a perfect spot close to breath taking scenery .
Samantha D. Jun 2017
The cabin was a lot bigger than what we expected. The pictures make it look a little smaller. It was a perfect distance to the private beach and in a secluded area. It`s about 20 minutes to town. We will definitely be back.

Me and my bf had an awesome time. It was comfy and cozy. The weather was a lil chilly but we still had a good time. And we were able to bring our dog it was fantastic.

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful A-Frame! It was clean and very cozy!!! The management staff was very helpful!

Me and my partner had a fantastic 5 day stay here in Oct 2016. What a gorgeous little cabin it is! When we arrived in the evening the lights had been turned on and the fire lit so it was very warm and welcoming. The cabin is spacious, clean and has all the amenities you`d need plus very comfy beds! Having the Netflix on the TV was a really nice touch and great for the one rainy day we had where we stayed in all day watching films. Location is good, easy driving distance to close shops and towns. Extremely quite, didn`t even see any of the neighbours while we were there. North Conway we found to be lovely and full of great shops and places to eat (ours favs where The Local Grocer and The Moat Mountain Smoke House).If where in this part of the world again I would certainly stay here again and can recommend it.
