New Ownership


Located right on the Appalachian Trail, this hostel was formerly known as "White Mountains Lodge and Hostel." Since it's new ownership by Erik Barstow as of May 1st, 2017, it has been renamed "Rattle River Lodge and Hostel" to tie in the hostel's physical location along the Rattle River in Shelburne, NH. 

Erik served in the Marine Corps as a Military Policeman from 1998-2002. Erik sells outdoor adventure hammocks from Sierra Madre Research. Erik is also a LASHER (long ass section hiker) completing the Appalachian Trail in 2016.
