About this listing

Beautiful, contemporary home on the Merrimack River with gorgeous river views. Open concept home with a chef's kitchen. Living room features a gas fireplace, which is loved by guests. I am the owner of Furnished Solutions of Manchester.

The space

The beautiful kitchen is completely outfitted with everything you need to cook a simple breakfast or a gourmet meal. We supply the kitchen inspiration, you supply the food! Feel free to use our cabinet full of spices and condiments in the fridge.

Living room features a gas fireplace (in use from October - April) and a 50 inch plasma TV with plenty of seating and huge ceiling fan.

The bedroom features a 4 poster bed with king size mattress and fine linens. Master bath, stocked with towels is attached to the master bedroom. The convenient second half bath is located off the foyer entrance.

The Merrimack River view is breathtaking all year long, from the kitchen, living room and dining room. The deck is enjoyable seasonally with patio table and chairs, propane fire pit, and propane barbecue. Enjoy the deck seasonally, April/May - October, however it is not available during winter months, as it is slippery.

No pets and no smoking.

Conveniently located off I-293, I-93 and only 15 min from Manchester airport. We are approximately 50 miles from Boston & Hampton Beach and just an hour from the White Mountains for great hiking and skiing.

I stayed in this lovely home in June 2017 while in town for a wedding. It was fabulous. The home was immaculate, comfortable, and clean; the host was warm and gracious; and the view of the river was incredible. It was really nice to enjoy coffee on the deck in the mornings. Donna was the model host by which all other AirBNB hosts should be judged against.

We had a fantastic stay in Donna's beautiful river view home. There was a big snow storm and the river looked fantastic under a full moon. Everything you see in the pictures, and as described by Donna, are exactly the way we found the home when we walked in. It was immaculately clean, and well furnished. The views of the river are spectacular. The bed and the furniture were all very comfortable. Donna communicated everything we needed to know before and during our stay. Great host, great property.

Response from Donna:
Thanks James. The river view is fantastic ... and a full moon just adds to it. Happy you enjoyed your stay.

This has been one of our best Airbnb stays to date. Everything described in the listing was exactly what we encountered if not better. This Airbnb made us want to stay in more than we usually do and it was such a peaceful escape in front of the fireplace and overlooking the water. The listing was extremely clean, anything/everything we needed to know was provided to us before/during our stay, and Donna was extremely responsive at all times. Would love to come back in any season to enjoy more of the amenities available & stay longer. Highly recommend and you won't be disappointed.

Response from Donna:
Yajaira, thanks for the fantastic review. Such a pleasure having you both. "One of our best Airbnb stays" ... my ultimate goal as a host, much appreciated!

Donna's home is beautiful, clean, and exactly as pictured. It's very inviting and welcoming as you first walk in. Donna has a lot of rules for her home, which we were aware of before we stayed. The number of rules are a bit extensive and Donna texted us multiple times throughout our stay including to tell us things like we may hear the sound of shoveling in the middle of the night (we stayed during a snowstorm) as well as to inform us we were over the maximum temperature of 70 degrees, which happened inadvertently when we had the heat set for 68 but the fireplace on. We'd recommend Donna's home if you need a clean, well-appointed place to stay in the Manchester area, but guests should be comfortable with the long list of rules before committing to a stay here.

Response from Donna:
Thanks Michael. I appreciated that you felt that my home is beautiful, clean, welcoming, well appointed and exactly as pictured. Rules are necessary in order to keep the home in "beautiful condition". Apologies, if my message disturbed you at 9 pm that the temperature was at 78 degrees.

Beautiful river views, very spacious, modern and well-equipped. Nice deck facing the river, though we couldn't use it because we stayed in December. The description of the place was spot-on and the instructions - and follow-up communications - from the owner were all very helpful.

Response from Donna:
Thanks Robert. Hope to have you back again during an off winter month ... so you can take advantage of the deck, it is fantastic.

Absolutely perfect. The apartment was charming and the outside deck with fire pit right on the river provided a tranquil setting to unwind. Donna was an attentive host and even surprised us with a special treat upon our arrival. If our travels take us to Manchester again, this will be our first option. A real gem among the Airbnb community.

Thanks for the kind review. So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. A pleasure hosting you!

Donna's home is so tastefully and thoroughly decorated. The space is so welcoming and comfortable. Everything we needed (linens, kitchen dishes & appliances) was available. The bed was super comfortable! She even included things like playing cards and binoculars which were thoughtful touches that made our vacation that much more relaxing. The home is in such a great location for access to downtown Manchester and to major highways to get to other places in New England. There is quick, easy access to grocery stores, gas stations, and restaurants. Donna is such a great communicator. She is personable and friendly. Her instructions included everything we needed for checking in and she was available anytime we had a question. If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly try to rent from her!

Response from Donna:
Thanks Jasmine. We use the binoculars often ... if you keep an eye out you can see the bald eagles fishing for their next meal. Very cool.

Traveling nurses, attorneys, politicians, vacationers, and couples looking for a home in Manchester have all enjoyed our turnkey homes.

I have worked in the hospitality business for over 30 years. A decade of experience with Omni Hotels and Hyatt Hotels. I continued on to own and operate 2 restaurants, as well as a small hotel with short and long term lodging. This experience has prepared me well to rent our homes in Manchester NH successfully over the past 5 years.

We split our time between Manchester NH and Cape Coral Florida, which allows guests to enjoy our homes here in Manchester.
