About the Property

White Mountain Four Season Retreat with 11 Rooms and 11 Bathrooms

Suzi Preston has owned and operated the Mountain Fare Inn since 1982! Her and her husband Nick have close ties to the ski community as Nick has been the Director of Freestyle Skiing at the Waterville Valley Academy for 35 years. They are avid outdoor enthusiasts, and love hosting people from all over the world at their classic New England B&B. Numerous Olympians frequent the Mountain Fare Inn to come and train at the near by ski resorts. Ask about their 'ski celebrity' alumni guests.

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.

Bordering the White Mountains and Lakes Region of New Hampshire, Mountain Fare Inn offers easy access to many local attractions and recreation including Franconia Notch, The Science Center of NH, Lost River, Owl’s Nest golf, boating on Squam and Newfound Lakes, alpine and cross country skiing, hiking the Whites, bouldering in Rumney, mountain and road biking, tubing on the Pemi, tennis at Waterville Valley Resort, Alpine Adventure zip lines, and a soccer field on the premises. We are conveniently located near Plymouth State University, Holderness School, New Hampton School, Plymouth area summer camps and Waterville Valley Academy. Music, theater and many fine dining options are available locally. See our list of attractions and restaurants. Mountain Fare Inn is truly a ski lodge run for skiers by skiers! A beautiful and peaceful environment for travelers, athletes, skiers, hikers and many folks escaping to the beautiful White Mountains. Exclusive Rental Facility for Family Reunions, Business or Recreational Retreats and Special Events. This Campton Village property offers access to year round activities and natural beauty. Located perfectly in the midst of Northern New England, it is a natural stop for anyone wandering from the NY Adirondacks to the coast of Maine or from Montreal to Cape Cod. Sleeps 24-28 or host up to 125 guests for events.

Owner info

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.

The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
Mountain Fare is an historic New England building that sits on six acres bordering the White Mountain National Forest. It is one of the oldest classic ski lodges in New Hampshire. The 10 rooms, each with private baths, comfortable and fun common areas, dining room that seats 24+ people, country kitchen that supports a gang of people with two stoves, two fridges, extensive, groomed fields and 6 acres of grounds, porch and decks. This property loves hosting families, groups and friends. We make it easy for you to escape for awhile and get back to basic. Your rental will include a number of complimentary full breakfasts. You will be spoiled! Our area is special in that it is mostly separate from commercial distractions. Hike, bike, play golf , kayak, canoe, swim, play tennis, ski, snowshoe, trail run, explore the White Mountains, get some reading done. Mountain Fare is a ski lodge and exclusive four season rental property run for skiers by skiers. Your door to the best that New Hampshire has to offer!
