Summit Getaway is a mountain top cottage available for nightly or weekly rentals. Nestled in the side of Mount Uncanoonuc, with easterly views of Manchester, NH and Boston. *Mount Uncanoonuc is located in Goffstown NH, and is only 15 minutes from Manchester! This will be a romantic getaway you won’t soon forget!

This privately owned home has been meticulously renovated, resulting in a warm, cozy and comfortable cottage. We have so enjoyed this fantastic cottage, and the incredible tranquility, that we felt we needed to share this with other like minded people, who also have a great appreciation for nature. We are so anxious for you to come stay and experience the joy we have for many years! It is most conducive for people looking for quiet serenity and relaxation. If you are looking to party, you’re looking in the wrong place.

We spent an extensive amount of time renovating and decorating this cottage. Our objective was to create a ‘feeling’ of comfort and homeyness. We want our guests, not just to appreciate the decor visually, but we want to evoke a feeling of peace and calm. We think we’ve achieved this objective, but, you be the judge!

This fully furnished, 2 bedroom cottage sleeps 4 comfortably. You will have the cottage all to yourselves, unless you plan on bringing a couple friends. The quaint little kitchen will inspire you to whip up a hearty breakfast before heading to the many trails Mount Uncanoonuc boasts.

The hiking trails literally begin steps from your door. Take a walk down the old Cog railroad bed and cool off with a swim in Mountain base pond. We provide you with a detailed trail map, to assist in your adventure.

You won’t be for a loss of things to do. Whether you hike, bike, swim, go antiquing, shopping, movies, or you just want to kick back on our expansive deck overlooking our gorgeous view, you’ll have memories to last a lifetime!

Other things to note
FAQ
You are renting the entire house. No other people, including us, will be on the property during the duration of your stay.

WINTER GUESTS
Now, this is very important for winter guests. You absolutely have to have an All wheel, or 4 wheel drive vehicle. Though we do plow, snow blow, salt and sand, in the event we get a storm, a two wheel drive vehicle will not be able to get out. I've bent the rules a couple times, and we ended up towing people out. My husband was none too pleased with me ;)

TERRAIN
Now, I know this goes without saying, but, these houses are situated on TOP of a mountain, therefore, the roads are steep and hilly, even in the summer. I've gotten feedback that people were 'surprised' by this. :) So please be aware.

INSECTS
As you are aware, this house is situated on the top of a mountain and surrounded by thousands of acres of wooded conservation land. We do have an extermination company service all of our listings on a regular basis. For the most part there are virtually no issues with insects, except on occasion with Lady Bugs. Due to the elevation the entire town experiences an abundance of these little guys. During the spring and fall there are several days that they make an appearance on sunny days. Unfortunately they sometimes find their way inside, and due to a short life span will die. So, IF you have ANY issues with this then I would advise you NOT to rent. I personally am not bothered by this, and many people are not, but if you are then I would recommend another listing.

WIFI/INTERNET
We are limited in our options for internet, on the mountain. We currently offer a HotSpot which is NOT capable of streaming, and I would classify it as merely 'adequate'. If internet is imperative for work, this may be a problem for you, and we would recommend that you do not rent the property. Or, if you are glued to your devices, we'd suggest staying home and saving money ;) No point in wasting it if you aren't going to enjoy our home. :)

PETS AND SMOKING
Not allowed. Please do not contact asking me to make exceptions for your 'small well trained dog'. We are loving pet owners ourselves, but they are never allowed on the properties. We have many guests that have allergies to animals.

SINGLE VS DOUBLE OCCUPANCY
This seems to be a common question. 1-2 people is single occupancy. 3-4 people is double occupancy, which means the price doubles. Many people have argued that they are 'renting the whole house anyway'. To which I point out that they are getting a tremendous bonus, as our rate is comparable to that of a single room in a B&B. And, just like an airplane, though everyone is under the same roof, each person is charged individually. Hope that makes sense :)

I am a professional chef, former real estate broker, cosmetologist and have owned several businesses. I love new things and challenges. I just recently finished writing a novel with a co-author, and collaborated on a non-fiction philosophical/psychological 'self help' book in a project called "I am Keats". (Website of the same name) My other venture is renting out my mountain top, and river front, homes. We've spent years renovating these homes and I absolutely love creating something beautiful out of something that had been neglected. We're excited to offer these homes to other like minded people who love nature, enjoy relaxing and can appreciate a cozy, comfortable, homey setting!
