Q: Do we share this house with you, or any other people?
A: No. You have the use of the entire house, with no one else on the property.
Now, I know this goes without saying, but, these houses are situated on TOP of a mountain, therefore, the roads are steep and hilly. I've gotten feedback that people were surprised by this. :) So please be aware.
IF WE ARE BOOKED ON THE DATES YOU ARE LOOKING FOR, CHECK OUT OUR OTHER LISTING! LOCATED NEAR THIS ONE;
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!
The key will be available upon your arrival. You will be given a combination for a lockbox, that is located on the door.

Other things to note
FAQ: Do we share this house with you, or any other people? No. You have the use of the entire house, with no one else on the property.
No smoking. No pets. No exceptions. Though I appreciate your love for your pets, please do not contact me asking me to make an exception for your "small, well trained dog". We are animal lovers as well, but do not even allow our dog onto the properties. There are too many potential problems, not least of which, our guests that have allergies. Thank you for your understanding!
We ask our guests to respect our home as though it was theirs. We do not charge a cleaning fee, nor do we require a security deposit. We hope that our guests appreciate this, and show it through honorable conduct.
Please note that Weekdays are $150.00 and Weekends are $200.00. (For single occupancy More for double.)
1-2 people is single occupancy. 3-4 people is double occupancy. There has been much confusion about this policy, and I'm asked frequently to explain it. I hope I can eradicate any ambiguity with the following explanation.
If you were to go to a bed and breakfast, you are renting one room. If you had a couple friends come with you, they would have to rent another room. When you rent our property, you get the use of the entire house, for the same cost as a single room in a B&B. BUT, if you invite another couple, they are responsible for the additional fee. (The same amount as you have paid) Some people have challenged this by stating that they have already rented the entire house, 'so what difference does it make to add people.' The difference is is that our costs go up. Electricity, laundry , ie linens, towels, hot water and cleaning. Therefore, we are essentially treating it, similar to a B&B, renting you, and your friends, 2 separate rooms. So, hopefully I have explained our policy adequately. :)
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".
My other venture is renting out my mountain top 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!
