At the edge of civilization, the Tiny House is in a tiny town at the end of two state highways, surrounded by thousands of acres of recreational paradise.
Love hunting, fishing, ATVing, snowmobiling, kayaking, hiking, and remote woods... but need hot running water and electric? This Tiny House is the perfect compromise! Hot showers, electricity, running water and convenience to village amenities (like food & gas) and direct access to ITS and ATV trails, right from the property.
BUT, this is the best of both worlds since included with your rental is a remote private "playground" up on a ridge five miles north of town. You can ATV or drive right to it! A camp fire pit, seasonal hammock and four chairs, AND the panoramic mountain VIEWS! The ridge is surrounded by thousands of acres of forest, trails and gravel roads for biking, hiking and ATVing.
Andover is a quiet tiny town, located just a few miles from the Appalachian Trail, right in the heart of vacationland. Route 5 has been called "Moose Alley" due to the large number of moose sightings near the road.
Mountain Village Tiny House is located right in the village, where you can hop on your ATV or snowmobile and ride right onto the extensive network of trails, including ITS 82. . .. the gas pumps are handy, right across the street! Or, bring your boat or kayak (we also rent kayaks) and drive a few miles to the boat ramps at Umbagog Lake or Richardson Lakes; try and hook a huge lake trout or salmon. Motor or paddle up to the remote sandy beaches; see moose or bald eagles along the way. Fish for brook trout in one of the many crystal clear brooks and rivers. Drive a few miles north into the mountains to hunt partridge or deer.
The Appalachian Trail is just a few miles down the road. Dramatic waterfalls and gorges, crystal clear cascades are all just a short drive away. And... closer, walk down the road to a secluded swimming hole with deep pools and waterfalls, on the Ellis River. Or walk around the block and find the trailhead that leads up to Farrington Hill, gateway to the mountains!
Stroll across the street to the general store for a pizza or ice cream cone, or two doors down to the diner (with free WiFi) for a full hot breakfast, home made muffins, whoopee pies, or order a Prime Rib with a cold frosty on Saturday night. . . ..
Or just "stay home" and relax in your large living room, admiring the beautiful tin ceiling, Van Gogh prints, or the Main St. sights beyond your huge picture window. Read a book from our library or play a board game in our collection. Play your MP3s on the stereo or CDS from our vintage collection. We have purposefully eliminated TV and internet from our tiny house, so that you will UNPLUG. . .. have more time to talk, play cards, Monopoly or read. In tiny homes, things are simple!
Make brunch in the fully equipped open concept kitchen with breakfast bar. A large bathroom with full tub and a private bedroom in the rear with a queen size comfy bed complete your tiny house experience. A door opens from the bedroom to the back porch and large back yard. A full size futon serves as extra sleeping for kids or guests. WE ARE PET FRIENDLY!
