Castle View Cabin is your own private retreat in the White Mountains of Northern NH. The cabin is surrounded by forest, with spectacular views of Mt. Madison, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Jefferson. This beautiful 3 room cabin is very private, with no other buildings, roads, or people within view. It is truly a mountain getaway, close to multiple hiking trails. The interior is bright and clean and is all wood. Mountain views from every window.
There is a comfy queen-sized bed in the bedroom. The bedroom has a comfortable reading chair. The living room has two couches. The kitchen has a table and chairs. All rooms have spectacular views of the mountains. You can lie in bed and gaze at the mountains. You can also enjoy the view from the Adirondack chairs on the porch or the hammock in the yard.
The cabin is accessed by a short (330 feet) hiking trail on a gentle incline.
If you have significant mobility issues, we advise you not to rent this cabin.
There is a well appointed dine-in kitchen, with a 2 burner gas stove, pots and pans for cooking, tea kettle, utensils, dishes, etc. We provide coffee, tea, hot cocoa, as well as cooking oil and spray, some spices, etc. There is instant oatmeal and pancake mix for you. Help yourself!
The cabin is a dry cabin and is off the grid.
Cell signal appears to vary by carrier. Verizon has a strong signal, AT&T does not. I have not yet determined the strength of other cell carriers.
As there is no electricity, there is solar power to charge electronics (and we have a charging station set up. Note - the charging station needs to be turned off when not in use or battery will drain and not charge your electronics).
We have rechargeable lights, flashlights, headlamps, and a few candles.
There is no running water in the cabin, but we provide water for drinking, cooking and doing dishes (and these are in the cabin). There is a hose with running water outside where you can refill the water for cooking, bathing and dishes. There is a cooler and we will provide a block of ice.
There are umbrellas and rain ponchos for use if needed.
I have recently installed a shower tent outside that has an on demand propane water heater. The water pressure is not high, but it will get the job done. There are bath towels, washcloths and beach towels in the cabin. I have provided body wash and 2 in 1 shampoo/conditioner.
There is free swimming about 2 miles down the road.
There is a composting toilet in an outbuilding. It is not smelly and is good for the environment. The bathroom is quite cute.
The cabin is very private as you can see no roads or other houses and you are surrounded by trees and forest. You have a front row view to the mountains. The cabin is a little less than 1/4 mile away from Rt. 2, so you may hear some intermittent traffic sounds.
I recently put in a comfy hammock!
Please see pictures for additional details.
Full 24 hour private access to the whole cabin and everything in it. Well stocked kitchen with dishes, cooking pots and pans, tea kettle, utensils, wine glasses, etc. Help yourself to coffee, tea and other beverages, as well as breakfast items, spices, cooking oils, etc. There is a cooler to keep any food you bring cool. Water for cooking and dishes provided and separate bottled drinking water provided.

I love living amidst the mountains in Northern NH. There is no place I'd rather be. I'm married and have 1 daughter. I work as a primary care Physician Assistant. I'm a musician on my church worship team, which I adore. I love animals and doing various arts and craft projects. My daughter and I are sci-fi geeks.
