For any questions about our policies, please call 603.466.5049.

It is the guest's responsibility to know and understand these policies and to ask questions.
Information may be subject to change without notice but my staff and I are very flexible and easy to deal with. We want to make each White Mountains adventure an enjoyable experience. The most important rule is respect, and, as long as we have that, you will always be welcome! We are the outdoor enthusiast's retreat. Many guests come here to separate from the outside world, and that is something I encourage. The everyday grind is tough, and everybody who works hard deserves a break. Let my Lodge and Hostel be that break! Enjoy our smart TVs and awesome WiFi. Drive safe, watch for moose, have a plan, and leave no trace, only footprints.
May the spirit of travel fill your soul with a new outlook of this beautiful world we live in.
