For those new to “cottage life”, we do follow the same guidelines as for house rentals; but with many more perks. This is not a motel, we do not service the cottages. These are basically “tiny” houses, we do expect you to leave the cottage as you found it.
Each cottage has a set occupancy that can be found under the individual descriptions. Our occupancy policy is necessary for your comfort and safety. Please take the time to review the accommodations of each cottage to find the one that will suit your needs best before making a reservation.
We do require a first night deposit to hold a cottage. Prices are per cottage, per night. 9% NH meals and rooms tax additional. Weekly rates are based on one night free.

Q: Do cottages have bathrooms?
A: Of course! All cottages come with indoor bathrooms equipped with a flushing toilet, sink, and shower. We provide the towels.
Q: Are cottages heated?
A: Yes they are! All cottages have heating for year round comfort. The fireplaces are just a bonus.
Q: Are cottages air-conditioned?
A: No. Although it can get humid during the day, a fan in the window at night usually gets cool enough for a blanket. In the mountains, temps tend to drop at night. We don’t provide air conditioning or microwaves because they draw too much power for the cottage to handle.
Q: How many people can stay in a cottage?
A: Maximum occupancies are listed under each cottage description. Please note that family cottages have a maximum number of adults, children are considered 12 and under.
Q: May we bring our dog?
A: Please do! We welcome well-behaved pets in all cottages and only assess a per stay fee. Please refer to our Pet Policy for more information.
Q: May we smoke in the cottages?
A: Because of the fireplaces, we do not restrict smoking in the cottages.
Q: May we swim in the brook?
A: Although the brook is shallow, you are welcome to bring floatation devices or let the kids wade and chase the fish.
Q: What is the history of SBC?
A: Sunny Brook Cottages opened as Birch Hill Cabins in 1932. The cabins were originally run as a summer operation, and known to be a serene oasis away from the bustle of Conway’s lumber operations and North Conway’s tourism.
After changing hands and names a few times, Sunny Brook Place went through major renovations in 1987 when the cottages were insulated and the plumbing replaced for winter rental. With new owners eleven years later, “Place” was changed to “Cottages.”In February 2015, Jane and Ken bought Sunny Brook Cottages with the plan to continue the tradition of being a “home away from home” for guests.
