8 Cabin Rentals for Your New Hampshire Vacation
Jericho Mountain State ParkBerlin 1 of 9
One of the newest state parks in New Hampshire is a great spot for your next cabin camping trip. Each of the five cabins can fit up to six people, and offers stunning views of the diverse landscape, with forests, mountains and a lake. These basic cabins provide a place to sleep, but all cooking should be done outside around the fire pit. With a front yard, take advantage of the outside space without going far from home.
Umbagog State ParkCambridge 2 of 9
Located on Umbagog Lake, these New Hampshire cabin rentals are ideal for a summer family vacation. If you're with a large group, reserve Cabin 1, a large cabin located on the beach. The smaller cabins are nestled in the woods and come with a front porch and campfire. Regardless of where you stay, explore the nearby islands, and go cliff jumping at Molls Rock. You can also dock your boat at Tyler cove and hike the .2-mile trail to a fresh water spring.
Radeke CabinConway 3 of 9
Deep in the White Mountain National Forest is the rustic Radeke cabin, with 10 wooden bunks, three rooms, a table, chairs, couch and wood stove. However, come prepared for no running water, electricity, cookware or bedding. With the UNH Trail nearby, you won't want to spend too much time inside, anyway. As you hike along the 4.8-mile loop look for a variety of birds—there are 237 species in this forest—deer, beavers and moose.
Milan Hill State ParkMilan 4 of 9
The cabins at this state park are actually yurts, but they serve the same purpose. These "cabins" are tucked into private campsites, with lush trees on either side. Inside, there's a bunk bed and two futons, all of which can sleep six people. This New Hampshire cabin rental also comes equipped with a coffee table, but nothing else; all cooking is to be done on the fire pit just outside the door. At sunset, head to the fire tower to see expansive views of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Canada.
Lake Francis State ParkPittsburgh 5 of 9
Rent the four-person cabin at this state park, where you'll spend your entire vacation on the water. Canoe on Lake Francis—you can rent a canoe if you don't have one—or bring a fishing pole and spend your afternoon on the shores of the Connecticut River. Back at the cabin, cook dinner outside on your grill and warm up on a cold night around the woodstove provided.
Doublehead CabinConway 6 of 9
Accessible only by hiking or snowshoeing the 1.8-mile Doublehead Ski Trail, this New Hampshire cabin rental is the perfect getaway for your vacation. The hike ascends to an elevation of 1,500 feet; if you have children or a lot of gear, plan accordingly. At the cabin, you'll find eight bunk beds, two small tables, and a wood stove, but no cookware, linens or other supplies.
Twin Mountain KOATwin Mountain 7 of 9
Located in the scenic White Mountains, cabins at this campground are built for luxury. For a truly uncommon experience reserve a real caboose, which has been converted into a two-room cabin that sleeps six. This rental doesn't have a bathroom, the other deluxe options do. They also come with a full kitchen or kitchenette, and multiple beds. But don't spend all your time inside; each cabin has a porch and fire pit so you can spend your New Hampshire vacation enjoying the charming White Mountains.
Pawtuckaway State ParkNottingham 8 of 9
This state park provides five comfortable cabin rentals and is known for its many outdoor activities. Relax on the sandy beach or hike 2.4 miles to the 908-foot summit of South Mountain. Other trails include the Fundy Pond Trail, which follows along the marsh, or the Boulder Field Trail, which weaves through a field where large boulders have been left behind as a result of glacial deposits. With plenty to do, you won't be spending much of your New Hampshire vacation inside.
