Trying to decide between the mountains and the lakes for your family vacation? Why choose? We are the only large vacation house in the White Mountains with a private beach. In warmer months you can swim, paddle and fish in our beautiful, pristine lake.

Six private bedrooms on two floors make this ideal for large families. Grill on our deck. Prepare meals in our architect-designed new kitchen with new stove, cabinets, dishwasher, large fridge and many special details. Play games in front of the fire place or roast marshmallows at our fire pit.

We have much for active families and groups to do nearby. Without leaving the property, you can swim, fish, or take one of our 5 kayaks or canoes out. We have a giant flat lawn for playing games and a volleyball court. A short walk up the road leads to trails where you can hike along Hubbard Brook and finding swimming holes and waterfalls.

We are a short drive away from four major ski areas; Loon, Cannon, Waterville, and Bretton Woods. These ski resorts offer the best skiing in New Hampshire. In the summer they also provide outdoor activities for families.

Mirror Lake Lodge is located in the heart of the White Mountains, surrounded by hiking, waterfalls, ski mountains, and family attractions.

Time to ski mountains (with year-round attractions):

15 minutes to Loon

20 minutes to Cannon

20 minutes to Waterville Valley

35 minutes to Bretton Woods.

Several lovely towns are nearby with great restaurants, shopping, and family attractions. Guests can enjoy hikes in Franconia Notch and Welch Dickey. Even very young explorers can enjoy hiking to the Basin, the Flume, and Lost River. Rock climbers can easily get to nearby Rumney. Train buffs will enjoy the nearby Hobo Railroad, Lafayette Dining Car, and the steam engine at Clark's Trading Post - all in neighboring Lincoln, NH. Golfers can play at the Jack O'Lantern and Waterville Valley golf courses. We are also a short drive to Squam Lake Science Center and Waterville Valley. We have information on local businesses who provide unique experiences such as moose tours and standing paddle board lessons.

However, the beauty of Mirror Lake Lodge is that guests can park their car and leave it. The lodge is on beautiful Mirror Lake, which is spring fed and 30-feet deep, ideal for swimming, paddling and fishing. It is stocked with trout. The shore is mostly lined by National Forest. Motor boats are prohibited.

**Attention swimmers: Before we bought the lodge, we used to come to Mirror Lake just to swim because the temperature was perfect, the water is clear and and there are no motorboats. It's an ideal lake for swimming. Our four-year old loves to wade and play on the sandy beach in front of the house. Our beach gradually goes out to 10 feet deep in the middle of our cove. The middle of Mirror Lake is 30 feet deep.


The lodge is a 200+ year old converted barn with a giant stone fireplace. It is imbued with authentic charm and character. There is a large hot tub that is in a separate part of the building.

There is a beach, a dock, 3 kayaks, canoe and paddleboat that guests are free to use. Also on the grounds is a fire pit, picnic table, and a very large, flat lawn with flower gardens and playing fields.

Guests are happily surprised by the size of our yard. It is a flat and grassy acre at the edge of the lake. We have croquet, bocce ball, and other games in the shed. There's even a large rectangular area that we set up for volley ball or badminton.

There is an owner's unit on the bottom floor of the house that we use on weekends and vacations. We have a separate yard and entrance. If any issues arise when we are not there, guests are encouraged to contact our local caretaker who lives nearby.


We have a full kitchen equipped with a stove, microwave, toaster, griddle, coffee maker, pots and pans, and most items you would normally need to make a meal. There is also an outdoor gas grill and an outdoor dining area. Within 15 minutes are 2 large grocery stores, several organic food stores, a state liquor store, and specialty wine and beer shops.

If you wish to go out to eat, there are a wide range of good options from pizza and sugar shacks to microbreweries and fine dining. Please ask us for a list of local recommendations and favorites.


If the party is over 12, it is $25 more per person, per night - this includes children and day visitors. Please check with us in advance if you are planning on additional guests. The house and the house facilities are designed to handle a limited number of people (12). If you want to host a special event, make sure to discuss with us ahead of time so we can see if it is possible to make arrangements.


We do allow up to two well-behaved dogs. We do require an additional refundable damage deposit if you bring your furry companion.

About Laura

I grew up in New Hampshire and my parents have a cabin in neighboring Thorton. My husband, son and I and our dog Rudy live in Boston now. My husband is a general contractor and architect, and we look forward to maintaining and improving the lodge and property in the coming years.

Laura purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Laura chose North Woodstock

In the summers when we visited my parents, my husband and I used to come to Mirror Lake because it's the best place to swim in the area. The water is so clean and clear and the shore is so wooded. We had been looking for a place on a lake for years and when we saw the lodge was for sale, we knew that this was the place. We met with Annemarie, the previous owner, who was (and is) great. We were lucky to have her teach us how she had successfully run the lodge for the last 15 years. We plan to keep the spirit of Mirror Lake Lodge going as the perfect place for families and friends to make lifelong memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This property was perfect for what we wanted. We had 6 of us stay over two nights after my wedding. It provided privacy, was quiet, very clean and well appointed and had a great hot tub. We plan on coming back in the summer when we can do more exploring and use of the lake. The owners are amazing at communicating and were very helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet place to stay with lovely amenities.

Just want we wanted...

  • 5 of 5

This house was just what my friends and I were looking for. We had a party of 9, including 3 couples and one infant. House was great for that. Having the second half bath was a definite plus. Only some of our group went skiing at Loon for the day. A bunch of us did some snowshoing around the lake - walking on trails through the woods and out on the frozen lake to chat with ice fishermen. Hot tub was excellent and everyone had fun. I appreciated they had firewood at the house we could simply pay for as it was hard to find on our way up. Definitely recommend grabbing groceries well before you get there.

Overall great stay, quick trip from Boston and we're already talking about renting again in the summer!

wonderful place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect destination, and it's especially comfortable for families. The house was well maintained, incredibly clean and a nice layout where everyone could congregate for meals and board games. The kitchen has everything you could want, including a griddle to cook up some pancakes in the morning! X-c skiing is close by, as well as a great hill for sledding for the kids.

great place and great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our time on Mirror Lake. The location is fantastic and the house is well set-up with plenty of sleeping spaces, a modern kitchen and a sizeable deck overlooking the lake. There also is a nice big lawn for playing sports - and a fire pit which we made ample use of for making S'mores! The owners and caretaker were very attentive and helpful.

Family celebration

  • 4 of 5

Our family reunion celebration including kids from 9 - 13 and adults from 30s to 70s - was wonderful. Lots to do in the good NH weather....swimming, fishing, visiting, BBQing, fun in kayaks and canoe. We hardly left the lake for sightseeing!! The hot tub was a great hit, too.

The ongoing renovations promise more indoor comfort in the future. The owner and the caretaker were easy to work with, and at the start of our stay the owners were on sight.

Good place for family fun and relaxation.

North Woodstock is in the heart of the White Mountains. Just 15 minutes from Loon, one of the largest ski mountains in New Hampshire, and very close to state-owned Cannon Mountain and Waterville Valley (x-country and downhill), the area is ski and snowboard heaven. In the warmer months, there is hiking through miles of National and State Forests, including the Appalachian Trail. Within Woodstock are rivers, waterfalls and gorges to explore with short hikes. Kids and grownups will enjoy Clarks Trading Post and Polar Caves or a scenic rides at Hobo Railroad or the Lafayette Dining Train. Need a break? Great restaurants and bars in nearby Woodstock, Lincoln and Campton. Shopping your bag? Not far either from Garnet Hill outlet (my mom's favorite) in Franconia and adorable downtown Littleton, NH (check out Just L for mid-century modern furniture). Also close to outlet shopping centers in North Conway and Tilton.
