Property description

Nestled at the base of Bois Mountain in Northern New Hampshire, our shingle style house has a commanding view of a spectacular mountain range. Originally built in the 1800s as part of the mountain resort community as a retreat from formal city living, this grand house is one of the few historic buildings left from that era. With 150 acres, Boismont offers land on which to hike and cross country ski. It is also within 30 minutes of major ski areas (Cannon, Wildcat, Attitash) as well as cross-country areas (Great Glenn Trails in Pinkham Notch, Mt. Washington Hotel). It is an ideal location for weddings, business retreats, and gatherings of family and friends.

The property includes enough bedrooms to fit the extended family or group as well as a large living room with a fireplace, screened-in porch, tennis court, swimming hole, barbecue, ping pong, pool table, and laundry facilities.

Located in the midst of the White Mountains, this location offers a myriad of outdoor activities in both summer and winter. Whether you want to ski at Wildcat Mt., Cannon Mt., or Sunday River, you will find this house to be ideally located. In summer, it is near to hiking trails of all levels. It is also close to local tourist attractions (Santa's Village, Six Gun City, Bretton Woods Canopy Tour Zip Line, Mt. Washington Cog Railway and Autoroad).

An ideal location for a wedding where there is plenty of room for a tent as well as housing for the wedding party.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1892

About the owner: The Carter family has owned this property for four generations. Since the late 1800's the extended family has been gathering for winter ski vacations and summer hiking trips as well as to just enjoy each other's company.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is large enough to have an extended group of family or friends without crowding into bunkrooms. The large living room allows everyone to enjoy a winter fire while the screened-in porch provides a place for eating out in the summer air. Beautiful fall foliage on Mount Washington can be viewed from the front lawn.
