This brand new cabin was completed in June 2017 on our 32 acre estate which includes the Moose Lodge, our 5-bedroom house, the Owl Roost (currently not available for rent), and our future home. A professional landscaping project was just completed and the awesome new patio with masonry firepit is now ready! The cabin is part of a spectacular 32-acre estate surrounded by National Forest and the Ammonoosuc river, an ecological paradise with numerous streams, wetland areas, ponds, and of course, the river and its beaches. We even have a fantastic swimming hole, about 7 foot deep, and you can tube right on the property thanks to the approximately 0.5 miles of river frontage. Enjoy the peaceful and serene surroundings and avoid the crowded condos, while maintaining incredibly convenient access to the ski resort, only a mile away, and the Mt Washington Hotel with all that it has to offer. This property is an ecolover's paradise, thanks to the diversity of its ecosystem - from river beaches to flood plains to maple groves to evergreen forest (balsam fir and red spruce) to wetlands and an incredibly healthy vernal pool. The entire property is a Certified Wildlife Habitat, and we are working with State and Federal authorities to increase accessibility while ensuring the protection of this stunning biological environment.

The cabin is bear-themed, and the craftsmanship is outstanding. The HVAC vents are hand-carved bear images, and there are masterful touches throughout. With 2 bedrooms and a loft, plus a futon in the living room, the cabin comfortably accomodates up to 10 people, and as luxurious touches such as central Air Conditioning, organic rustic wood flooring, modern slate appliances, and beautiful log furniture throughout. While surrounded by National Forest, the presence of the other 3 houses on the lot ensure that you will have much more privacy than you would have at the condos, yet not feel isolated - the best of both world! We currently live in the owl roost, so we are just a short walk away if you need anything. And for larger groups, inquire about renting multiple units!

As you walk in, you will be welcomed by the warmth of the rustic-style organic wood flooring. The main living space features a living room and a fully equipped kitchen. A stylish wood burning stove keeps you warm and cozy in the winter, and a large screen TV with Roku and access to cable TV, Amazon, HBO, Netflix, Hulu (all included!) can keep you entertained for hours. On the main level, you will also find the bathroom, with beautiful log cabinetry and natural slate floors and shower walls, and 2 bedrooms, one with a queen and one with a twin bed and a full bed in bunk configuration.

The loft is inspired by tree-house living, and features 3 built-in beds (1 queen, 2 twins), an elegant birch partition with twinkle lights for added privacy, and a "tree-house feel" thanks to the indoor cedar roofs that complement beds and storage space. Everyone who has seen it has been wow'ed!

In the summer months, you can enjoy grilling on the deck (grill provided!), eat at the outdoor table, or make smores in the firepit (wood not included!). The new outdoor patio will provide a perfect space to make memories with your family, and a small pond in the front yard adds to the ambiance. Watch the hummingbirds fly by, and in the winter, check the ski conditions by looking out the window - the slopes are right in front of you! A vernal pool provides a beautiful backdrop - and in the right season, it's teeming with tadpoles and surrounded by fireflies. Come enjoy the best that the White Mountains have to offer in this little slice of Paradise on Earth!

About the Moose Lodge and Cabins

Surrounded by National Forest and the Ammonoosuc River, the 32 acre lot provides a wide array of habitats for many animals. Some of the ones that you are more likely to encounter include Brown Bears, Moose, Snowshoe Hares, Beavers and White Tailed Deer. Bobcats are also present, but they are rather secretive and only rarely seen. In addition, the property is home to hundreds of different birds. In fact, the area in front of the Moose Lodge, named “Brooks Field,” is one of only 3 designated open areas of the National Forest. The National Forest Service keeps this area trimmed to support a nesting habitat for a number of birds.

In addition, you will notice a lot of wetland around the property, especially on the Western side. These areas are dotted with small creeks and vernal pools, which in the right season are full of tadpoles and salamanders. In early summer, however, it’s the fireflies (aka lighting bugs) that steal the show! You will see them everywhere, but especially over wet areas as they engage in their spectacular mating behavior.

Many visitors want to see moose – and rightly so. They are beautiful (albeit goofy looking) animals! The best spot is just a few hundred feet to the left of our gate, along 302. The muddy pit is one of the best spot in all of New England to see moose, and a favorite stop for the moose tour. Keep in mind, moose do not like the heat, and tend to remain in the woods during the day. The best time to spot them is spring time, or the evening or early morning hours in the summer. In the winter, they tend to migrate to higher grounds, where strong winds mean less snow accumulation and easier access to food.

Please note – these are WILD animals. While attacks are extremely uncommon, exercise caution and never approach wildlife, as tame as it may seem. Even that small bear cub can be dangerous – mama bear is most likely not far, and will not like you being too close to her cubs. If you encounter a bear, remember – they are as afraid of you as you are of them. Make lots of noise and they will most likely quickly turn around. Enjoy our animals but please, respect nature!
