The Knoll in summer.
2 reviews
The Knoll in summer.
One of many nearby brooks with crystal clear water that is ice cold even on the hottest days.
View from the dining room.  The sunrise over those mountains is gorgeous.
The Knoll covered in snow.  Note the kid at the bottom - sliding is a blast.
The Knoll before the snow.  A view from the bottom of hill looking up to your Maine woods retreat.
View of the mountains and the lake in the distance.
White Mountain National Forest boundary sign - marks the beginning of the backyard playground. -
One of the trails in the backyard woods - a 10 minute ski from the house.
View from backyard trail through snowy woods down to Virginia Lake.
Dining room with mountain view.
The living room with a view of the mountains. Curl up with a book or write your own short story.
A view toward the living room.  Again, it doesn't get much more authentic Maine than this.
Downstairs bedroom. City dwellers better bring a cityscape soundtrack, it's going to be quiet here.
The queen bed in the upstairs bedroom - the sun rises below your window.
The full-size upstairs bed.
View of both upstairs beds in the loft.
Looks pretty simple but there is nothing better than watching the sunrise from one of those stools.
The bathroom - utilitarian but charming in its simplicity.
The kitchen - utilitarian charm through and through.
White birches and blue sky - this scenery is usually available in large quantities.
One of the many stonewalls that strectch through the forest built long ago by early settlers.
View of mountains from frozen bog.
View of Virginia Lake from peak of nearby Isaiah Mountain.
Tall pines and hemlocks out back - fun to ski through.

Offering wonderful country views, our place on the knoll is perfect for families looking to explore the White Mountain region in an authentic Maine setting. While not brand spanking new, our place is comfy and neat in a homey kind of way while being located on the doorstep of the White Mountain National Forest.
