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.
