About Stephen & Beth
We live and work in town, just 5 minutes from our House on The Gale River so we are available to answer questions or help in any way. Should you like, Beth or Steve will meet guests to check them in and tell them all they need to know about the house and all the area has to offer. For an additional fee we are happy to have any special supplies you might request upon your arrival. We each landed in the area over 28 years ago through our professions, fell in love with each other - and the area, we thought what a great quality of life and place to raise children! Now 24 and 26 both of our boys enjoy returning to spend time in the outdoors. Both of us are Licensed NH/VT Real estate Brokers.
Stephen & Beth purchased this House in 2015
Why Stephen & Beth chose Franconia
The house is just a block from the town field and playground located along the Gale River, we call it the Dow Field. There is also a Gazebo on the Dow where local concerts, events and celebrations take place. If you join us for the 4th of July we promise you won't be disappointed with our town Old Home Day and evenings fireworks, music and more ! We are walking distance to groceries, coffee shop, eateries, Iron Foundry Brew Pub, Heritage Museum, hardware store, P.O., and more. Littleton is just 10 minutes, 3 exits up 93 for larger services with a multitude of eateries, brewery, movie theater, antiquing, all within the ever pedestrian friendly downtown. Our favorite restaurants are the Beal House, Cold Mountain Cafe and Iron Foundry Brew Pub. The Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem does not disappoint for film and live music. Summer theaters in both Whitefield and Lincoln. Lincoln is just 20 minutes south of the Notch. We are in the heart of the White Mountains with outdoor recreation being an abundance!
What makes this House unique
Guests will have access to the entire home and ample parking. The house is located directly on the Gale River with a private path that leads to the water’s edge, a great place to sit on a hot summer’s day. The Gale River trail, part of the town Fox Hill Trail system, is just across the drive and is as beautiful as it sounds while winding along the river with miles of beautiful walking, hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. Enjoy strolling to Franconia Village just a few blocks away where you’ll find coffee shops, sports shop, hardware, groceries and eateries. During the summer months we'll supply at the house beach chairs, umbrella, canoe, beach towels, bikes and fire wood for our guests to enjoy. Franconia Sports is just 2 blocks away in the Village for bike and ski rentals. The area is quiet yet close to family attractions and tons of outdoor recreation, perfect for a memorable vacation in the midst of Franconia Notch and the White Mountains. We hope you’ll enjoy getting to know our area and the quality of life that surrounds us!

Immaculate home. Perfect for our needs.
My brother, my 2 nephews and myself loved this charming home. We skied 5 minutes from the house at Cannon Mtn. Loads of fun. The house sits on Gale River and was gorgeous in the winter. Would definitely return if our travels take us to Franconia again.
Nicki and her family were absolutely great guests at our vacation house. They were very communicative and excited to be together here in the White Mountains with family. We were so happy that they had such a great time in our guest house on the river and so close to skiing. Nicki and all left the house in absolutely perfect condition for the change over! We hope to have them return soon!! Steve and Beth
My family and I enjoyed this home. It was close to the highway, very comfortable, had everything we needed and was very clean. We would love to come back another time!
Thank yo Darlene: We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay at our river house! You left the house in perfect turnover condition and we greatly appreciate it! Love to have you come and stay with us again Thanks Steve and Beth
My wife and I had a great time at the House on Gale River! Stephen was a friendly and attentive host and made sure we had everything we needed. The property is immaculately maintained, private and conveniently located. We had a fabulous time relaxing on the porch, BBQing and enjoying a glass of wine after our days of hiking in the spectacular nearby mountains. We would definitely stay here again.
Our recent Quests were awesome, not only did they they leave the house in perfect turnover condition they had a awesome time in the North country of New Hampshire!! Hope to them come back and visit soon!! Steve and Beth
Cozy and beautifully decorated
Loved staying at this house. Greeted by Steve and we had a basket of goodies waiting for us. What a nice touch! I’ve stayed at many rental properties and this was the best equipped house I’ve stayed. I highly recommend this property.
Cozy vacation home!
I had a wonderful stay at Beth and Stephen's vacation home. The home is well kept and clean, and comfortably fit six people. The loft bedroom upstairs is super unique and charming! We spent most of our time skiing on Cannon mountain (5 min drive from the home), but the house was the perfect home base to relax and recharge. Check-in and out was seamless; I would love to stay at Beth and Stephen's home again! We especially appreciated the snacks and bottle of wine upon arrival :)
Cute, clean, and comfortable. Perfect ski getaway.
A great rental experience from start to finish. The place was adorable and the beds were comfy. The snack basket in the kitchen was perfect after our drive. The house was well-stocked with all the necessities. Thank you for being wonderful hosts!
