About the Property
White Mountain Four Season Retreat with 11 Rooms and 11 Bathrooms
In the 1830’s the property was a Pemi Valley subsistence homestead in a rural community surrounded by logging, hunting, trapping and trading, river commerce and eventually railroads. It has a long history as a guest house dating to the early 1900s when travelers came by train to the White Mountains for the summer. At one point the local telephone exchange operated out of this building. When Mount Tecumseh (Waterville Valley Ski Area) was developed into a major eastern ski Area in 1960, the Thompson family renovated the attached barn into guest rooms and a dining room and proceeded to run a full service Lodge to skiers passing by on the Old Waterville Road.
Our secondary structure, The Carriage House (The Barn), was an old barn that was renovated beginning in 1989. With its three spacious guest rooms and warm, inviting game room it is a favorite gathering venue for groups of friends or families during ski season, weddings, graduations or for summer hiking trips.

Year Purchased: 1982
About the owner: Susan and Nick Preston have owned, enjoyed and stewarded the Mountain Fare property in Campton since 1982. They came to the area in 1980 as freestyle ski coaches for the Waterville Valley Ski Club and proceeded to raise two boys and run two businesses – Mountain Fare and Freestyle America, a summer freestyle training program that operates out of Whistler, BC, Mount Hood, Lake Placid and Waterville Valley to this day.
Why the Owner Chose Campton, NH, USA:
Nick and Susan have owned and stewarded Mountain Fare since 1982! They actually 'landed' here by coincidence. As young ski coaches at Waterville Valley Resort they rented rooms here (then called Anderson's Inn) in 1980 and '81. It was a run down, abused, beautiful old building that no one took care of but just had its own will to survive. In 1981 it was for sale. They realized that it had been a favorite full service Inn for skiers on the road in and out of Waterville Valley in the 1970's. It actually served as a guest house dating back to the turn of the century when the trains from Boston stopped in Campton. It was built around 1830 as a Pemi Valley farm in logging, trapping and trading country. It was actually the beautiful land and location that lured the Preston's into buying the property. The historic building was daunting with 37 broken windows and only one out of 8 baths working. The Preston's needed a place to live and another income since skiing was seasonal. They proceeded to slowly renovate the Inn and created our summer Freestyle Ski Training programs called Freestyle America.
