We are early to bed, early to rise and ask that you respect the evening quiet.
Christie and Richie were the best hosts imaginable. The room is colorful, cozy and spacious enough to host three people. The little bathroom adorable with all the details. Everything not self explaining is labeled, so even late at night check-in is not a problem. We had a wonderful breakfast, including self made Cranberry-Nut-Bread, which I could have eaten all day, and detailed consulting for our hiking trips in the White Mountains.
Thanks for your warm Welcome, you made us feel like home!
Que dire de notre séjour chez Christie & Richie ?!
Cadre ressourçant, maison superbe avec une vraie histoire, chambre confortable et spacieuse, et surtout... Hôtes souriants et agréables avec qui c'est un reel plaisir d'échanger. Ils ont très bien su nous renseigner sur les activités à faire sans le coin et nous conseiller sur les coins de rando.
Leurs compagnons à quatre pattes ne doivent en rien être un frein.
Et en plus... Excellent petit déjeuner avec un cramberrynut bread qui déchire !!
En résumé, séjour reposant chez des hôtes que l'on ne peut que recommander !
This place was better than the pictures could tell. So beautiful, peaceful and quiet. Christie & Richie are superwarm people who really make you feel at home. The breakfast is wonderful and the banana bread is the best you'll ever eat!
Oh and Christie even brought down babytoys for our little baby girl (and us). Very very kind!
Staying with Christie and Richie while visiting the White Mountains in New Hampshire in July 2015 was just amazing. Both are absolutely gorgeous hosts which made us feel as we were staying with old friends right away. Christie's all present good mood was kind of virulent and Richard's laid back personality just hit the right spot in our expectations. The house is quietly set in a beautiful location and sometimes even made us forget, that we actually came for the White Mountains NP and not for Christies and Richard's Happy place! We do have to give you a warning, though. Little Nala and the two cuddly cats are going to break your heart when you hit the road again! Cheers so much, Pasqual and Simona
My wife, 5 year old daughter and I stayed and Christie and Richie's place. The place was beautiful, clean and quiet. Our hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. We highly recommend it.
Words can't begin to describe how wonderful my trip to New Hampshire was and staying with Christie and Richie was phenomenal. They were both incredibly polite and welcoming when we arrived and truly made us feel right at home. Their home is beautiful and amazingly designed. My friend and I both greatly enjoyed getting to read the binder that told the story of how the house came to be built and we loved the entire experience. Christie and Richie were very nice and sociable but respected our privacy and many times my friend and I felt like were had the house to ourselves even when everyone was home. Their pet cats were very loving and their dog was also very sweet and all three were never a bother to us. Our bed was very soft and comfortable and it was really nice having our own bathroom with towels and some toiletries provided for us. The house was incredibly quiet at night and it was very easy to get a peaceful night's sleep there. We ate delicious breakfasts everyday before we left the house and the baked goods provided for us were delicious and it easily was one of my favorite parts of the day. We also cooked two nights while we were there and Christie and Richie were great about letting us have use of the kitchen. We had no problems trying to cook for ourselves because Christie and Richie ate their meals at times that didn't overlap with ours so we had no awkward moments with traffic in the kitchen. I would DEFINITELY stay with Christie and Richie again and I would highly recommend them to anyone that wants to stay in beautiful Conway, New Hampshire!
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt bei Christie und Richie. Ihr Haus liegt mitten im Grünen und ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen, für die Christie viele Tipps hat. Naturliebhaber werden in diesem alternativen Niedrigenergiehaus eine entspannte und angenehme Bleibe finden. Das köstliche Bananenbrot und die Herzlichkeit der Gastgeber werden uns in guter Erinnerung bleiben. Und natürlich die White Mountains, wunderschön: Die Bäche, der Geruch der Hemlock Tannen, einmalig!
