Eagle, Wolf and Bear Lodges
Located in the foothills of the White Mountains, our rustic board and batten lodges meld into the landscape of Oak Hill Farm. Red metal roofs echo raindrops or deflect the heat of summer. The door to each lodge depicts the animal for which it was named: Eagle, Wolf and Bear. We have furnished the lodges as if we were entertaining friends or family. Each carpeted 24' x 24' lodge has an open floor plan and pine paneled walls that arch to a beamed cathedral ceiling. Each has heat, a ceiling fan and air conditioning if needed, a coffee maker, a small microwave and a dorm-size refrigerator. We've added dishes and coffee ready to brew. A tall bookcase in each cottage contains a diverse library of books, DVD and VHS movies, board games and puzzles. We don't get a TV signal here, and some cell phones don't work here either. In lieu of TV commercials and depressing headlines, we offer a TV with a DVD/VHS player and a wide range of movies from vintage favorites to new releases and some for the little ones as well.
We recommend that you sleep in, get up when you feel like it and enjoy your coffee or tea on the porch watching Piliated Woodpeckers darting in and out of the forest, chipmunks foraging for their breakfast or deer wandering along the edge of the woods. We sometimes see a flock of wild turkeys or an occasional moose.
Eagle Lodge ~ 2 Queen Beds
The Eagle Lodge (our guests are beginning refer to it as The Eagle Nest) is an airy cottage furnished with two queen-size beds dominated by massive carved Italian headboards. The beds are made up with pastel quilts and lots of pillows. We have provided thick comforters for cool nights. This cottage also has a queen-size sofa bed that is quite comfortable as a twin if you don't want to fold it out. Little ones are delighted to find a plush chipmunk looking down from the rafters.
Wolf Lodge ~ 2 Queens and a twin alcove bed
The Wolf Lodge is a well-appointed cottage featuring two queen-size beds with classic pineapple-post mahogany headboards, as well as a twin bed tucked into its own alcove. The beds are made up with bright sunflower quilts and comforters. The ceiling of the twin bed alcove has glow-in-the-dark constellations above.
Bear Lodge ~ King and twin cupboard bed
The Bear Lodge has a king-size bed as well as built-in cupboard bed reminiscent of the nook Heidi slept in at Grandfather's. A bookshelf within the nook holds a myriad of treasures including a copy of the book "Heidi", a collection of children's classics, stuffed animals, a silly wooden green frog, a couple of sheep and an awesome dignified cow. This cottage has a 93" couch that just begs you to sink into it. There is also an antique desk with secret compartments, which most desks of that era had.
Winston Browne Housekeeping Cottage
The Winston Browne Cottage was built by Ruth and Winston Browne in the 1960s. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full size refrigerator, electric range with oven and broiler, a microwave, coffee maker, dishes, pots and pans, glassware, some small applianes and a pancake griddle. (We encourage pancakes!! Be sure to pick up some of our own High Acres Maple Syrup in the Barn Store.) A three-season porch opens off the kitchen providing added sitting and eating space with windows that open on three sides. A hutch by the side door is filled with DVD and VHS movies, board games and puzzles. The 750 sf cottage is heated and air conditioned.
Winston Browne 3-Season Porch
This cottage was built on various levels so there are step ups and step downs between the rooms.

How To Get Here
We are located about 2-1/4 hours from Boston. From the Hampton NH toll booth on I-95 you will be about 1-1/2 hours from us via The Spaulding Turnpike/Route 16 which takes you along the eastern border of New Hampshire. In Center Ossipee take the Route 25 exit towards Portland. Travel about 15 miles east on Route 25 to the village of Kezar Falls. Just before crossing the river turn left on Route 160 and wind your way through the village. The local map below will get you to us. If your GPS tries to send you across the Ben Gilpatrick Road DON'T DO IT. It's an almost impassable dirt woods road.
