The Rattle River Lodge and Hostel sits on the Appalachian Trail, against the backdrop of the Carter-Moriah Mountain Range, and is gateway to the Presidential Range of the White Mountains. Built in 1877, this renovated New England colonial home on 7.4 acres does not lack for services, amenities, or modernity, while still keeping its original charm.
Our Hostel features the amenities and services for a restful stay.
The kitchen has always been the hottest spot at the Lodge!
We provide shuttle services! All shuttle requests must be requested by phone or submitted through our website. Click on the "Shuttles" tab at the top of the page for additional information or click on the link below to request a shuttle.
Try one of the Appalachian Trail's most challenging slackpacks! This famous 21 mile slackpack runs between Pinkham Notch and Rattle River Trailhead. For safety, if you think this slackpack presents too much of a challenge, then we suggest you attempt it over a period of 2 or 3 days. (We will hold any gear you don't want to carry on the slackpack.)
We love our guests and visitors! Feel free to visit us during business hours or look us up on social media! A phone call is the best way to get in touch. If we don't answer, don't worry, just leave a message!
