Private room with shared bath in an old house. The room is on the second floor with the bath right next door. The house is comfortable and has plenty of space to relax and get ready for a day exploring the area.

The space

Rest and rejuvenate in a cozy old house in Gilford, NH after your day full of adventure and exploration. The house is rural but only 10 minutes from town. I have a pretty backyard and gardens and pleasant common areas. There are many local attractions as well as easy access to the Lakes and Mountains of NH for year round fun.

Come disconnect from the daily grind, there is no WiFi, TV or even a clock in the room. But there is a most comfortable double bed and great view of the big maple in the backyard...almost like being in a treehouse.

I have three great cats, Pearl, Leroy and Tiffany (she lives in the barn)who will all want to be your best friend. If you are allergic to or afraid of cats please consider this before booking with me. Pearl and Leroy may try to convince you they are outdoor cats but don't listen, just say "NO".

I also have two horses to consider if allergic to horses.

You can enjoy Central NH and all it has to offer. There is something going on every week throughout the state. Make your reservation, then come make a memory. My house is a great base camp for whatever activities you choose.

There is ample parking and room in the garage for ski equipment or motorcycles.

Guest access

You have access to the listed space, the kitchen, the common living room and the great outdoors!

Interaction with guests

We can interact as much as time and desire allow. While you are with me I go about my life which, along with Airbnb, is pretty full. I'm fortunate to have a wonderful group of friends, fulltime work, and plenty to do around the house and with the horses.

Other things to note

There are two driveways. Park in the driveway by the deck, leaving room for a second car, come up the stairs and in the back deck door...this is the door to use while you are staying with me.

Winter access is thru the basement door, up the stairs into the house.

I do not have WiFi or any Internet connection.

Laurie was a great hostess!! She met us at the door and immediately showed us around the house and to our room. (Leroy the cat is a great escort!) The house and surrounding land is absolutely beautiful and peaceful! This was a perfect spot to stay for the concert we attended at Bank of NH Pavilion! Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed with Laurie back in 2013, and have looked forward to returning ever since. She is a wonderful host - friendly, helpful, flexible and kind. She creates a warm, comfortable atmosphere in her beautiful home. We'll be back again!

Laurie User ProfileLaurie is a superhost.

I'm a down to earth, nature loving, happy to share my home type person. I garden regularly, enjoy quiet time, wine with friends, the outdoors, horsemanship, skiing, snowshoeing, the lake and life in general. Having lived here most of my life I'm familiar with how to get places, better restaurants and fun stuff to see and do. When I get a chance to go away for a couple days I Iove the Pearl by the Sea in Old Orchard Beach, ME.

Meanwhile I'm looking forward to meeting you.
