Begin a Family Tradition with us at Loch Lyme Lodge

family vacation

Historic Loch Lyme Lodge is situated on Post Pond in Lyme, NH, not far from Hanover and Dartmouth College, in the picturesque Connecticut River Valley. We have 21 cabins for rent set in 120 acres of fields and woodlands. These cabins are a mixture of bed and breakfast and housekeeping cabin accommodations, in a peaceful and natural setting that makes Loch Lyme Lodge a wonderful place for a family reunion, family camp or a simple quiet vacation, with an emphasis on family fun, peace and quiet, a caring staff and a congenial clientele. We are also able to host weddings.

Loch Lyme Lodge is a rustic and eco-friendly vacation spot. Our furnishings are simple and comfortable; we have fireplaces and games, not televisions or video arcades. We have screened porches instead of air conditioning and no bar with nightly entertainment. We provide Internet access in the main house.

There is no shortage of things to do. We are surrounded by lakes and mountains, flower filled meadows and little villages, and fields and farmers markets. This is a great base for fishing, hiking and biking all around the region and you might even like to hike a small part of the Appalachian Trail.

Our cabins can accommodate anything from one to two people to large parties. Decide how many people will be staying, whether you want bed and breakfast lodging or housekeeping cabin then use this site to find your perfect NH cabin in the trees or by the lake. Our dining room is open to Lodge guests and the public. We offer full breakfast, sandwiches and snacks during the day, and our chef prepares a wonderful dinner in the evenings.

We know you have a choice of cabins in New Hampshire and hope you will consider us for your next vacation. We look forward to speaking with you soon!

Being told to 'take a hike' is a good thing when you stay here, with so many great trails to choose from.

A Pet Friendly Vacation

We know that your pet needs a vacation too, and our cabins are pet friendly, so feel free to bring them.

We enjoy being able to continue the long tradition of offering pet-friendly lodging. We ask that you please bring a leash, keep your pets off the cabin furniture and always pick up after toileting your pet (we can supply plastic bags if needed). We have a swimming area specially created for your dog to cool off and have fun. We ask that dogs be kept out of the main swimming area and stairway into pond. Only guide dogs are allowed in the main lodge.

A Green Vacation

Green vacationIn more ways than one..

If you are looking for a eco-friendly vacation, you have come to the right place. We have always been environmentally friendly here. The cabins themselves are rustic and use minimal electricity, and all have fireplaces. We use CFL’s and LED’s and even dry your sheets outside when we can. We have our own small garden and buy first from local farms for our restaurant. We recycle and compost.
