Interaction with guests

We try to be available when you arrive to show you around and tell you a bit about the neighborhood. While I like to personally greet guests, I do work long hours on the weekends, Friday through Monday. Most of the time my partner is available to show you around if I am unavailable. For the times neither of us can be immediately available we will try to work arrangements around your schedule (we both work nearby)

We always try to be available by phone should you have any questions. Please make yourselves at home. If we are at home we are happy to share conversation and, perhaps, a glass of wine…but will not be offended should you just want “quiet” time.

The house is right in the middle of town but far enough removed from the strip to not be affected by the weekend noise. Sandy is a gracious host, and her house is a wonderful place to stay. My sister and I opted for the bedroom with two twin beds, which was an excellent option, and there were also two rooms with queen beds. The bathroom was enormous, clean, and stocked with towels and other necessities. I highly recommend the property to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Sandy was an amazing host! She is very accommodating and very knowledgeable of the area, informing us of great restaurants and towns in the area to visit. Her house is within walking distance to many restaurants, arcades, and a beach. We had a great time!

Sandy is friendly, super responsive, and has an adorable home! My friends and I stayed at Sandy's for a wedding, and we loved our rooms, the vibe of the entire place, and Sandy had a wealth of helpful information. She responds to messages quickly, and although we didn't see her much, we were so grateful that we stayed at her home. It was welcoming, spacious, and fun!

We can't say enough good things about Sandy's place. It's exactly as described -- near Weir's Beach, yet quiet. Parking couldn't have been easier (and free of charge). Her home is a lovely and inviting bungalow, filled with eclectic art, artifacts, antiques, and a great selection of books. The beds were super comfy and we slept like babies. We were glad for the mini-fridge located upstairs, as we were traveling with food. The guest bedrooms and bathroom were immaculate, and Sandy thoughtfully supplied extra blankets, towels and toiletries, as well as tea, coffee, and hot cocoa in the morning. Sandy, herself, is friendly and welcoming, and we enjoyed talking and laughing with her. Sandy seems like she understands guests' needs, and she works hard to meet them. She's a fantastic host, and we highly recommend staying at Sandy's place.

Sandy User ProfileSandy is a superhost.

Live music and good food, throw in a spectacular sunset with a bottle of wine and some good (or soon-to-be new) friends and I am having a great day. I LOVE music festivals because they include all of the above, but my current job limits me to being able to attend no more than one two a year.

Love to start the day with coffee on the sun-porch or, if I wake up early enough, stroll down to the lake to watch the sun rise. I have always lived in New England, growing up in the Boston area (still my favorite city). I then moved to Cape Cod for my first "real" job as a geologist in Woods Hole on Cape Cod. While living there I was a singer in a popular 50's & 60's band, the Geotones. Most everyone in the band was a scientist of some sort plus one professional musician and a silversmith.

After a dozen or so years dealing with the politics of "publish-or-perish" and knowing I would miss the ocean and the thrill of being in the band, I left Cape Cod to try something totally different. Bought an abandoned farm house and with help from family and friends, transformed it into a very successful Bed & Breakfast in Jefferson, NH...my Applebrook years. Catering mostly to hikers, bikers and skiers AND their enormous appetites, had me finding and developing new recipes. It was a creative blast! I love to cook and to put an element of surprise in my menus. They came expecting spaghetti and salad and instead got seafood crepes or salmon with sesame butter or whatever I was in the mood to create. An added bonus - some of those people became life-long friends.
During the down time I would work in my stained glass studio. Sunsets on the knoll were my favorite way to wind down...A glass of wine, a comfortable Adirondack chair, a beautiful view of the White Mountains, and one of the best shows on earth. I miss that this is not part of my daily routine anymore, but I still get back for an occasional sunset.

In spite of the gorgeous view of Mt. Washington from my kitchen window the physical toll of running an inn caused me to re-think my life. I loved that I usually had two to three months every year when the B&B was so quiet that I could take off. I did a few solo cross-country trips, attended numerous music festivals, and even got to work a temporary job in the Virgin Islands for a complete change of scenery, but my energy was flagging. To be closer to family and friends I moved to Weirs Beach on Lake Winnipesaukee...I passed the B&B on. It is now run by a very sweet young couple (and they kept the name). I kept the lower fields as a "camp" where you can occasionally find me on the Knoll toasting another stunning sunset before heading back to my current home in the Lakes region of New Hampshire.
I bought a Beach Cottage and share it with my best friend and partner (The guy that keeps everything running and makes sure the tomatoes get watered) and everyone's best friend, Jax, the dog. There's room for you, too. I turned only one of the spare bedrooms into a studio. There's still two more. I've filled the cottage with original art, books and movies (both VHS and DVD's). I still love to come up with new and surprising recipes. I keep finding more and more cookbooks to read at the local thrift shops. Recently we found a pasta machine on one of our "junking" forays and have discovered that we LOVE fresh pasta. If we happen to be whipping up a batch we will share.
