How to Build a Modern Mountain Home That Stands Out on Airbnb

In just a moment, you’ll meet Andrew and Bianca — founders of the Serenity Hill Group, a growing collection of luxury Airbnb escapes in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. 

Andrew and Bianca live in Boston, and while they love all that the city has to offer, their hearts have always found peace in the mountains.  

Andrew grew up hiking, skiing, and vacationing in the White Mountains and dreamed of one day buying his own home in the area.

As luck would have it, one day, the seemingly perfect opportunity presented itself — a 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home tucked away on a private 2-acre lot surrounded by tall pines and the crisp White Mountain air. 

But, the home needed a lot of work. So Andrew, Bianca, and their families spent the next year transforming the home into an incredibly beautiful, modern escape from the city. 

And while the couple had intended to make this place their permanent home, their circumstances changed and they decided to list the space on Airbnb. 

Tune in to hear the story of how Andrew and Bianca learned how to build, design, and furnish Serenity Hill House and how they decided when it was time to open up their SECOND Airbnb, The Rosewood, just a couple of towns away.
