MCM hideaway with entertainer's deck, dog-friendly yard, Ping-Pong & WFH desks

On a large corner lot with few homes nearby, this home has a groovy 70s feel with a beamed ceiling, angled picture windows, playful furnishings, and a circular crushed velvet sofa. Updated throughout, it has a new kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and abundant cooking equipment, renovated bathrooms, and three new queen mattresses to choose from. Three floors, each with a full bathroom, means it can host a crowd and feel separated. A glass front wood stove lets you enjoy a fire with minimal tending.

Located 5 minutes drive to the Franconia Notch attractions that include the Flume, the Basin, and Echo Lake recreation area (swimming and boat rentals), and what is widely regarded as the best day-hikes in the region. The Appalachian trail traverses the notch, and if you hike up to backcountry huts, Lonesome Lake, or Greenleaf huts late in the day, you may catch a glimpse of 1,000-mile through-hikers on their last 100 miles. If you want to experience backcountry overnights, we highly recommend those (Lonesome, Zealand, Galen, or Greenleaf make good combinations nearby) and signing up early. New Hampshire hiking is on well-worn but rough and sometimes steep historic trails, with many waterfalls and swirling granite pools for unique north country cold water fun. For those who seek a warm pond, directions are provided to one in next town over that is perfect for the youngest kids. With several gourmet ice cream shops, the Colonial Theater for events, and a steady stream of smaller quieter summer festivals, here you can get away from it all, but still access diversions.

There is a huge sunny deck, an outdoor patio with fire pit (kettle BBQ available), and a large mowed field for dogs (extra fee) and kids. From the deck, you can hear a rushing brook and almost no cars, yet be a convenient 3 minutes off the highway and 2 miles from the quaint yet lively tiny town of Franconia. Franconia’s local pub was the subject of a recent ‘Restaurant Impossible’ episode after a top Brooklyn chef moved here for the quiet life and to manage a smaller space. This is part of a dining revival throughout the area, with a range of exceptional summer dining ranging from new breweries to outstanding Thai food, to brick oven pizzerias in an old watermill on the river, and the incomparable Pollys Pancake Parlor with its incredible views.

Local shopping is an attraction on its own. Just 15 minutes north in Littleton (one of Top 10 Main streets in America) you will find original unique merchants from housewares to clothing to vintage records and furniture.
