The Loft at River's Edge is a secluded, spacious, second floor river view apartment separate from the main house. Views of the Connecticut River and Vermont's mountains are breathtaking. Spacious lawns and gardens abound throughout the property. Guests have their own outdoor picnic area where they can enjoy using the fire pit and gas grill. Kayaks, a canoe and other sporting equipment are available to our guests. Our loft is a lovely and peaceful place to call your "home away from home."

The space
The loft is a very clean, quiet, bright place on the second floor over a 2 car garage which is used primarily for storage. The apartment has two entrances and is totally separate from the main house, not sharing a common wall between the two. Guests have loved the fact that it's quiet, secluded and private, spacious, and fully equipped for a comfortable stay. An additional queen bed in the main room can be used for kids or another couple. The bathroom is spacious and has a full-sized tub/shower & vanities. The unit has Wifi and television with DVD player and plenty of DVD's to enjoy. Books and games are available as well. There's air conditioning in the summer and heating unit (both of which guests can regulate to their comfort).

Guest access
Guests may use the entire grounds of the property as much as they'd like. We want our guests to make themselves at home here!

Other things to note
For your convenience, two nice clean laundromats are available for you to use in Woodsville, NH and Wells River, VT called Little Bubbles and Big Bubbles.

Guests visiting during the winter months should have 4WD or AWD vehicles due to the steep hill that goes in and out of the River's Edge property. The hill is sanded but front and rear wheel drive vehicles can have some trouble on occasion and guests can slip and slide on the hill trying to get up the hill, causing the gravel road to get dug up and damaged in the process and causing the guest's car to slide and potentially get damaged if it goes off the road into the ditch on the side of the road. If you don't have an AWD or 4WD vehicle, you should consider booking another location for your trip.

Location

Although an R.N. by profession, my heart is in the hospitality industry and I enjoy sharing my passion for the mountains and nature with as many people as possible, from all walks of life. My goal is to offer peaceful, relaxing and beautiful places for guests who are looking to re-energize themselves. And, I hope to do this at an affordable rate so many people can enjoy what I have to offer. My interest in the hospitality industry began many years ago when My husband, Karl and I began opening up our home in Uxbridge, Massachusetts to people who needed a short or long-term place to stay. We rented out bedrooms in our home and shared our kitchen, living room, beautiful sunroom with views, and our only bathroom with a shower, with our guests. Many were complete strangers to us yet we opened up our home and invited them to use it as though it were their own. We felt it was "our calling" to share our home with others in need and envisioned moving up north to NH where we could be more involved in the hospitality industry in the beautiful White Mountains Region. We ended up settling in Grafton County, NH, and finally in the charming town of Monroe, along the Connecticut River. Karl took an early retirement package from his job at Thermo-Fisher Scientific in Massachusetts after struggling to perfom his job as an electronics technician due to Parkinson's Disease. I took a position as a school nurse at a boarding school in Haverhill, NH and we began our adventure of living in NH and the mountain region. Karl was a very devoted husband who was the "wind beneath my wings,," and with his encouragement and help he enabled me to fulfill our dream of owning a cabin on a mountain ("Secluded Mountain Cabin on 24 Acres with Big Views")which we are now able to share with so many others. Sadly, in 2019, after 40 years of marriage, Karl lost his battle with Parkinson's Disease, but I carried on with our vision of pursuing our love of hospitality and opened up several beautiful view properties for travelers to enjoy. Thankfully, Karl's caregiver and our dear friend, Jeff, has faithfully provided the needed support and help to care for all the properties to enable our vision to be carried forward. Karl and I have two wonderful children - a daughter who became a special education teacher and is now raising 5 children with her educator husband, and a son who is presently enjoying a post doctoral position in Atmospheric Chemistry at NASA. For fun, I enjoy hiking with the family, taking my two standard poodles (Tucker & Lexi) for walks; biking, kayaking, writing, community theater and using my creativity to beautify and improve the properties for guests. I feel God has blessed me with the opportunity to share these beautiful places with so many travelers and I hope people walk away feeling refreshed and inspired by the experience of living isolated away from the pressures of life in the beautiful North Country of New Hampshire.
