The Chalet has 3 units. The AirBnB is the entire upstairs space. It offers you a comfortable break from all the busyness and noise. A private, very spacious yet cozy room in the hills and trees of Nelson, NH. Nearby Center Pond is a great place to paddle without a lot of effort. The pond is only 33 acres but people come from far and wide to fish and take in the quiet (no motors). Nelson is a quiet, sweet little town with lots of dirt roads to walk and a friendly, welcoming community.

The space

A Swiss style chalet located in the hills of southern New Hampshire! The space is a large open room, it offers spectacular natural light and a high ceiling with tremendous beams. The wrap-around balcony is a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee. It is elegant but it also feels like a cabin in the woods.

Guest access

The entire upstairs is one large room. The 1600 square feet of space offers a kitchen area, a living room area and two bedroom areas. There is a full bathroom. Wifi is provided. There is a grill for your use on the balcony. Coming soon: a path to the pond and a canoe for your use.

Other things to note

A few things to note before booking:
During the month of July, a summer program for kids ages 8-12 is held daily in the barn on the property from 8am-4pm on Weekdays. Expect to hear songs and laughter!
Also although the property is on Center Pond, direct access is somewhat limited. The public access is easy and less than 5 minutes by car or a short walk away.
Some mobile phones work at the Chalet, others just won't.

My two kids and I had a great time at the chalet. Owen was easy to get in touch with if I had a question about anything. I look forward to staying there again.

The Chalet is a beautifully unique property surrounded by incredible New Hampshire nature. Secluded on a quiet dirt road, which is great for a walk or run (make sure you go to the top of the hill, right from the property, for gorgeous views of surrounding valleys and Mt. Monadnock), and just above Center Pond and many other ponds and lakes, it is ideal for a relaxing stay. The great room is beautiful, with amazing wood work, massive fireplace and a well-stocked kitchen and clean bathroom, all surrounded by countless windows with bring the outside in. The wrap-around porch is ideal to take in the sun and listen to the loons from the pond. Owen is flexible and extremely responsive to inquiries and questions. Highly recommended!

The Chalet is amazing, we loved it!!! The location in the woods is so peaceful. The wrap around deck lets you enjoy the woods all around. The open space of the Chalet is gorgeous, a soaring ceiling, beautiful woodwork, and such an interesting building. The hosts were so nice, we had several wonderful conversations. There were yummy bagels and cream cheese in the fridge and cookies waiting for us on the dining table, the table itself was amazing. The beds were comfy, the place was spotless, there was lots of hot water and so many interesting books to peruse. The Village of Nelson is very quiet and they have Contra dancing in the Meeting Hall on Monday nights, so much fun! Nearby Center Pond is the perfect place for a swim and the quiet dirt road in front of the house is the perfect place for walk. I can't say enough wonderful things about the Chalet and the hosts Owen and Kate. I would go back in a heartbeat.

I recently stayed at the Chalet and wow what a magical place. It is well taken care of and full of charm. Owen was an excellent host, was easy to reach and quickly responded to any questions we had during our stay. The location was very easy to find and close to many ponds/lakes and hiking trails. This is definitely a location I will visit again!

Interaction with guests

I want to answer that I am available when needed but I do not live in town. I am generally pretty reachable. We can be reached through AirBnB or by phone if there is something you need help with. I also have people in town who I can send to help in case of a problem.

About Owen

The owners are Owen and Kate. Owen grew up in Nelson right next to the Chalet. Kate grew up in Delaware. We met in 2013 and Married in 2015. We love gardening and travel and wish we had more time for both! The Chalet has been in Owen's family since it was built by his grandparents in the 1950s. We bought it in 2016 because we wanted to see it stay in the family. It is already a lovely and charming place and we have plans for many fun improvements. We hope you will love your first stay so much that you will keep coming back again and see our progress!
