RUSTIC LOG CABIN #1 - “RUSTIC RETREAT” is the original log cabin that started it all! You’ll find a king size bed with a ceiling fan above, in front of the fieldstone fireplace along with two Adirondack chairs for enjoying the crackling wood fire in the fieldstone fireplace. This studio style log cabin is complete with a full kitchen and bath w/shower.
This is Cabin #1 ~ “Rustic Retreat"
What makes Rustic Log Cabins unique? It’s not just one thing but many.
One of those things is the WOOD BURNING FIREPLACES in every cabin. Next is the SALMON HOLE BROOK that wanders its way through the property. It runs by each cabin and the OUTDOOR FIRE PITS, singing it’s soothing songs as the water rushes over the rocks. You can stick your feet into cool off, sit along side while watching and listening to the babbles of the brook, go fishing (its stocked!) and even pan for gold!
And don't forget to greet the GNOMES. They love having their pictures taken with our guests.
Each cabin has a FULL KITCHEN and BATHROOM and WiFi.
There are ONLY 6 CABINS spaced far apart. Every cabin has a yard. All have a front porch, side yards plus a front and/or backyard. You can barbecue on your CHARCOAL GRILL on the porch (a gas grill just isn’t rustic).
We have OUR OWN HIKING TRAIL that leads to the MAIN CORRIDOR SNOWMOBILE TRAIL that runs through NH, VT & ME. You’ll pass the well house that delivers ARTESIAN WELL WATER to each cabin.
Rustic Log Cabins are in the White Mountains Region of New Hampshire, just 15 minutes away from the WHITE MOUNTAINS NATIONAL FOREST and FRANCONIA NOTCH STATE PARK with it’s many hiking trails and natural wonders. We are located along an official NH Scenic Byway - Rt. 117, aka Sugar Hill Rd. - nearby many attractions and small villages. Within 5-15 minutes or less are the towns of Sugar Hill, Littleton, Franconia and Bethlehem. Within 20-30 minutes are Lincoln and Woodstock, several ski resorts as well as Franconia Notch State Park, White Mountains National Forest and the scenic Kancamagus Highway. A few minutes more are other ski areas, plus Crawford & Pinkham Notches and New Hampshire’s most famous “resident” Mt. Washington. 5-20 minutes from several small towns and villages.
