90 minutes from Boston & just 5 miles from the winter fun of Mount Sunapee, the Lodge is a truly unique space with timeless and upscale accommodations that make this far more than your traditional rental destination! Located at the historic estate and summer residence of 2-term New Hampshire Governor Francis P. Murphy, we provide a rustic, yet romantic retreat for adults.
Stepping into the Lodge, you're transported back in time, surrounded by hand-hewn beams and spruce boards dating back to the 1920's. The space has to be seen to really be appreciated...and we've carefully updated and chosen furnishings that would be comfortable, but appropriate for the space.
A large and comfortable sectional with chaise features a fold queen size bed is parked in front of an entertainment center: LED television with surround sound CD/DVD/Stereo. Free cable & WIFI.
An oversized field-stone fireplace with twin leather pub chairs awaits the weary traveler or skier. Twin bookcases with Tiffany lamps are filled with books, games and distractions for when you just want to hang out.
When you're ready to cook, the kitchen at the Lodge has everything you need. This original and virtually unchanged turn of the century kitchen features original built-ins with modern electric stove and oven. Full-sized refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and anything else you'll need. A 4 person farm style table sits beneath trendy Edison light bulbs for cards, games or meals.
After a day on the road, at the lake or on the slopes, you'll enjoy Governor Murphy's Locker Room, with a large walk-in 2 person shower.
Lastly, when you're ready to crash, the Master Bedroom features a large king size sleigh bed with 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, goose down comforter, and tons of pillows.
This is as close to a truly classic ski lodge as you'll find this side of the White Mountains...filled with history that we've worked to make comfortable for anyone. We hope you'll love it as much as we do!
Guests have full access to the grounds. Your caretakers Ken & Travis are always available to answer questions, offer advice for activities or the best place to grab a bite.
