Overview

Photos and Description of the Thornton vacation lodge rental

Large 6-bedroom in White Mountains, 2 hrs to Boston, minutes to ski areas

This classic mountain lodge is nestled in the White Mountains on a lovely lake. Six private bedrooms on two floors make this ideal for large families. Without leaving the property you can swim, fish, boat, play volleyball and other lawn games, or have a bonfire. It's a short walk up the road to Hubbard Brook trails where you can hike along a rushing river with swimming holes and waterfalls. We are also close to four major ski areas; Loon mountain is less than 15 minutes away and Cannon Mountain, which has the largest vertical drop of any mountain in New Hampshire, is just 20 minutes door-to-door.

LOCATION

Mirror Lake Lodge is located in the heart of the White Mountains, surrounded by hiking, waterfalls, ski mountains, and family attractions.

Time to ski mountains (with year-round attractions):

15 minutes to Loon

20 minutes to Cannon

25 minutes to Waterville Valley

35 minutes to Bretton Woods.

Several lovely towns are nearby with great restaurants, shopping, and family attractions. However, the beauty of Mirror Lake Lodge is that guests can park their car and leave it. Being directly on a lake and having a huge yard means no packing up the car every time someone wants to go for a swim. Go from the house to the yard to the water without lugging a bag. Guests can wake up and be right where they want to be. There are miles of trails along Mirror Lake and nearby Hubbard Brook.

The lodge is on beautiful Mirror Lake, which is spring fed and 30-feet deep, ideal for swimming, paddling and fishing. It is stocked with trout. The shore is mostly lined by National Forest. Motor boats are prohibited.

Besides skiing and snowboard, there are many area attractions and activities. Guests can enjoy hikes in Franconia Notch and Welch Dickey. Even very young explorers can enjoy hiking to the Basin, the Flume, and Lost River. Rock climbers can easily get to nearby Rumney. Train buffs will enjoy the nearby Hobo Railroad, Lafayette Dining Car, and the steam engine at Clark's Trading Post - all in neighboring Lincoln, NH. Golfers can play at the Jack O'Lantern and Waterville Valley golf courses. We are also a short drive to Squam Lake Science Center and Waterville Valley. We have information on local businesses who provide unique experiences such as moose tours and standing paddle board lessons.

**Attention swimmers: Before we bought the lodge, we used to come to Mirror Lake just to swim because the temperature was perfect, the water is clear and and there are no motorboats. It's an ideal lake for swimming. Our four-year old loves to wade and play on the sandy beach in front of the house. Our beach gradually goes out to 10 feet deep in the middle of our cove. The middle of Mirror Lake is 30 feet deep.

HOUSE AND YARD

The lodge is a 200+ year old converted barn with a giant stone fireplace. It is imbued with authentic charm and character. There is a large hot tub that is in a separate part of the building.

There is a beach, a dock, kayak, canoe and paddleboat that guests are free to use. Also on the grounds is a fire pit, picnic tables, and a very large, flat lawn with flower gardens and playing fields.

Guests are happily surprised by the size of our yard. It is a flat and grassy acre at the edge of the lake. We have croquet, bocce ball, and other games in the shed. There's even a large rectangular area that we set up for volley ball or badminton.

There is an owner's unit on the bottom floor of the house that we use on weekends and vacations. We have a separate yard and entrance. If any issues arise when we are not there, guests are encouraged to contact our local caretaker who lives nearby.

FOOD AND DINING

We have a full kitchen equipped with a stove, microwave, toaster, griddle, coffee maker, pots and pans, and most items you would normally need to make a meal. There is also an outdoor gas grill and an outdoor dining area. Within 15 minutes are 2 large grocery stores, several organic food stores, a state liquor store, and specialty wine and beer shops.

If you wish to go out to eat, there are a wide range of good options from pizza and sugar shacks to microbreweries and fine dining. Please ask us for a list of local recommendations and favorites.

INFO FOR LARGER GROUPS

If the party is over 12, it is $25 more per person, per night - this includes children and day visitors. Please check with us in advance if you are planning on additional guests. The house and the house facilities are designed to handle a limited number of people (12). If you want to host a special event, make sure to discuss with us ahead of time so we can see if it is possible to make arrangements.

DOGS

We do allow up to two well-behaved dogs. We do require an additional refundable damage deposit if you bring your furry companion.

North Woodstock is in the heart of the White Mountains. Just 15 minutes from Loon, one of the largest ski mountains in New Hampshire, and very close to state-owned Cannon Mountain and Waterville Valley (x-country and downhill), the area is ski and snowboard heaven. In the warmer months, there is hiking through miles of National and State Forests, including the Appalachian Trail. Within Woodstock are rivers, waterfalls and gorges to explore with short hikes. Kids and grownups will enjoy Clarks Trading Post and Polar Caves or a scenic rides at Hobo Railroad or the Lafayette Dining Train. Need a break? Great restaurants and bars in nearby Woodstock, Lincoln and Campton. Shopping your bag? Not far either from Garnet Hill outlet (my mom's favorite) in Franconia and adorable downtown Littleton, NH (check out Just L for mid-century modern furniture). Also close to outlet shopping centers in North Conway and Tilton.
