Ray made everything convenient and easy!
Thanks for staying at our chalet !!
Great place to stay with a Lg family.
It was nice to be able to TALK to the owner before checking into the house.
We all had a wonderful time.
We had a great time. Perfect for a large family getaway. Right down the street from king pine!
thanks kathy, im glad you guys had fun!~~~!!!!! ray mooney
Nice house with a good sized yard for outdoor activities - plenty of room inside and out. Our dog enjoyed playing in the backyard. Ray was very responsive to any questions we had throughout our stay. I would give him a call before check-out on your last day to go over in detail what is covered by the cleaning fee and what is expected of the renter. Also, sheets and towels are provided; however I would bring your own sheets as it is expected the renter wash/dry/fold sheets and towels prior to 10AM checkout which can be a time crunch. Description of property is as advertised. Fun area to be in all seasons of the year.
A house in the woods
First, the positive. We wanted a fairly rural setting and this is it in spades. We were surrounded by woods, just a little ways off of a country road, so very quiet. The house is spacious and somewhat rustic in it's design and decor, totally in keeping with its rural setting.
We also wanted a place to branch out from. We wanted to travel in all three NE states, and the Conway area is a great location for that. If you're into the touristy stuff, Conway is great for that as well.
Finally, the owner, Ray, was terrific to work with. He communicated quickly and was helpful to a fault. We've not dealt with a more responsive owner.
So why four stars? First, there is very little, if any, place to put your clothes. The main bedroom has two dressers and a very small closet. All of the dresser drawers were full of the owner's clothes or linens, etc., for the house. The closet was half full of the owner's clothes and had just two or three extra hangers. If I'm staying in a house for a week I don't want to live out of a suitcase. In fairness, the owner let us empty a few drawers so we could put our own clothes in. The other two main bedrooms (those with a double or queen bed) had no closet or dressers available at all.
Second, some things didn't work, or didn't work well. We arrived during the evening and quickly found that the main house heater was not working. We immediately informed the owner, who quickly arranged for someone to come out the next day. It was working properly by the next evening, but that first night was a little on the cool side!
We also struggled with the TV. The TV worked fine, but the DVD produced video but no audio. It took over an hour to rewire some of the components, with the owner's permission, so that we finally got sound. Part of the problem was trying to learn the universal remote, which didn't control all the of the devices, or all of the features on the devices it did control.
The upstairs shower produced a tiny stream of water at the shower head, not suitable for taking a shower. The three of us just used the shower downstairs, so not a big deal, but if there'd been six or eight of us . . .
Finally, the laundry pair was quirky. It took as almost twice as long to wash the linens on our last day because the washer would just stop mid-cycle and refuse to restart. We tried rebalancing the load, reducing the load, but nothing worked. We finally just started over, and then, surprisingly, it worked.

Why Ray Mooney chose Freedom
We fell in love with the Town of Freedom & the property itself and it's an easy drive from MA, RI, or CT.
What makes this Chalet unique
Affordable accommodations for up to 12 guests, so why not split the cost with extended family or friends. Separate bunkhouse is GREAT for the kids or for privacy.
