About this listing
Visiting a child at Dartmouth? Coming for business at DHMC? Want a fall color trip, summer lake escape, or winter cross-country ski getaway in New England?
Our place is perfect for you. Sleep in this gold jewel box of a bedroom with comfortable queen-sized bed, Italian marble floors and a giant picture window with an incredible view of the lake, mountains, and stars. Private bath with shower and bathtub is attached to your room.
In summer, step out the front door for kayaking, fishing, or swimming in Mascoma Lake, or out the back door to hike or bike the 20-mile Northern Rail Trail between Lebanon and Grantham NH; a short walk along the trail brings you to the Mascoma river for fly fishing. We can lend you the kayak, a bike, and/or basic fishing tackle, or feel free to bring your boat for waterskiing or other adventures.
In winter, snowshoe across the frozen lake or on the trail, or ice-skate on our front yard rink. Small kids love to sled down the hill! Warm up afterward with cocoa in front of the wood stove. We have snowshoes to lend for adults and kids, or bring your skis or snowmobile to use on the trail.
We're a 10 minute drive to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and a 15 minute drive to Dartmouth College, too.
The room is perfect for a couple. We have a child and welcome children; if you bring a child or two along, they can sleep on an air mattress we'll provide in our son's playroom, or on a futon in the living room, adjacent to your room.
NEW: We now have a gorgeous new 3 person outdoor hot tub with a view of the lake!
A NOTE ABOUT PRICING: For certain dates, you will see the price is markedly higher; $150/night. On these dates, the price is for the run of the house; you'll have the place to yourself and the house on those dates can accommodate 4-5 people instead of the usual 2-3. Also these dates only *may* include (depending on the timing of your visit) a trip to a local Vermont CSA farm and a free basket of local, seasonal organic produce for you to use during your stay; contact us for details about whether this perk is available for the dates you book.
No smoking. No pets.
