Franconia is a small town located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It is named after the Swiss town of Franconia due to its remarkable resemblance. Its economy was initially based on mining various types of iron in the area. Now, it is known for being home to the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, which takes passengers up 4000 feet (1000 meters) to the Canon Mountain Summit. Franconia is a quiet town with not much nightlife. However, its peaceful nature and beautiful sights are why it is popular as a getaway destination today.

This accommodation is a uniquely shaped house set on a large area of the private river bank. It has four bedrooms spread across three levels allowing it to sleep nine guests. The best feature of the house has to be the tall, cathedral ceilings and the full-sized windows that take up the entire wall. It has been beautifully decorated with plenty of caring touches, evident from the fact that each bedroom has been given a name. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy it on the private deck outside.

With three bedrooms and one bathroom, this Airbnb vacation rental can sleep eight guests. The rental is part of a farmhouse that was built in 1852 but only started taking in boarders nearly 50 years later. It has been consistently remodeled to ensure that it is up to date with current living standards while maintaining its rustic charm. The accommodation is a part of the farmhouse where the family loom and home-made linens were kept - which is how it got its name of ‘the Loom Room.’

This rental is a different part of the same century-and-a-half farmhouse in listing three above. This part used to be the kitchen, pantry, and dining area that was used to entertain the boarders of their time. Presently, it has two bedrooms and one bathroom, as well as a living room and kitchen. The beauty of this farmhouse is that the hosts sell their own home-made products like beef, maple syrup, and seasonal fruit and vegetables. These can be enjoyed cooked to perfection on the grill and eaten in peace at the gazebo.
