About the property

11 Bedroom, 5 1/2 Bathroom With Mountain Views

Nestled at the base of Bois Mountain in Northern New Hampshire, our shingle style house has a commanding view of a spectacular mountain range. Originally built in the 1800s as part of the mountain resort community as a retreat from formal city living, this grand house is one of the few historic buildings left from that era. With 150 acres, Boismont offers land on which to hike and cross country ski. It is also within 30 minutes of major ski areas (Cannon, Wildcat, Attitash) as well as cross-country areas (Great Glenn Trails in Pinkham Notch, Mt. Washington Hotel). It is an ideal location for weddings, business retreats, and gatherings of family and friends.

The property includes enough bedrooms to fit the extended family or group. It also has a large living room with a fireplace, a screened-in porch, tennis court, swimming hole, barbecue, and laundry facilities.

About Debbie Carter

The Carter family has owned this property for four generations. Since the late 1800's the extended family has been gathering for winter ski vacations and summer hiking trips as well as to just enjoy each other's company.

Debbie Carter purchased this house in 1892

What makes this house unique

This house is large enough to have an extended group of family or friends without crowding into bunkrooms. The large living room allows everyone to enjoy a winter fire while the screened-in porch provides a place for eating out in the summer air. Beautiful fall foliage on Mount Washington can be viewed from the front lawn.

Great House with great views!

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I arrived to the Carters property we were taken aback with how large it was. Inside it appeared meticulously decorated with memories of grand get togethers. Our group of 18 fit right in. We had people drive in from all over the northeast and there was plenty of parking for 9 cars. Across the street was the watering hole. I was unsure how big it was from the pictures but it is about 10 large tire tubes across in length and about 5 to 6 feet deep. There was plenty of room for everyone to get in and cool off. Next to the hole was an outdoor grill but the best part of all was the view. The picturesque White Mountain View will leave you relaxed and yearning for more. We will definitely be going back. Thank you Carters!

Wonderful Winter Weekend with Co-workers!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Victorian Splendor in Jefferson this past weekend. There were 14 of us in total, and there was plenty of room to hang out, cook, play board games, etc. There were a perfect amount of bedrooms for all of us, and each floor had a couple bathrooms so you never felt over crowded. The house definitely has an older, victorian feel, which our group really loved. The characteristics of the house made for even more fun memories to be made.

Some of our group skied at Bretton Woods (~25 min away) while the rest of us checked out Mt Washington Hotel. We made dinner together on Saturday night, and the table fit everyone for our "family" sit down dinner. The fire place in the living room was great, as it added some warmth as well as ambience to our get togethers.

Debbie was wonderful to communicate with leading up to our stay. She was very responsive and thorough with her answers to my questions. It's apparent that they take pride in their house, and want everyone to enjoy their stays there.

Thanks again for a great weekend!

Quirky, charming, ample space

  • 5 of 5

I and several girlfriends rented this home for a long weekend ladies' getaway. This place is super spacious with plenty of bathrooms and a couple of wonderful deep bathtubs. This was our second time and both times we absolutely loved it. It's an old, quirky place but kept clean. It might be vaguely haunted but whoever is hanging out is friendly. Even with 20+ women in the house we had lots of room to congregate and break away if we wanted to.

The weekend was very rainy, but we made the best of it! And the caretaker Shannon was so thoughtful in bringing us plenty of firewood, and even dragging out the grill for us--which we ended up not being able to use because of the rain. (We still appreciated it though!)

Highly recommend.

Living history weekend in the White Mountains

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a home base for a group of living historians for the weekend. 19 adults and 2 children came to the White Mountains to portray tourists from the 1860s. We needed a big space to house all the participants and we were looking for an historic setting. Boy did we find one! This house is full of history. It is truly a special place loved by the same family generation after generation. This was the perfect setting to immerse yourself in history!

The big rooms accommodated our large group. There were so many varied places to sit and visit. We enjoyed the front porch for sitting out and watching the thunderstorms and rain in the evenings. We all fit together in the parlor. The children enjoyed watching television in the other parlor and LOVED playing ping pong and pool in the studio. The dining room and screened in porch fit us all for a formal, sit-down dinner. The kitchen was huge and well stocked with everything we needed. The bedrooms were comfortable and there were enough bathrooms for all. It really was the perfect house for a large group and oh, so comfortable.

The weather was not great, so we did not get to enjoy the property surrounding the house as much as we would have liked. We wandered over to the swimming hole only to get caught in a downpour! But, had it been nice and had we more time, having a fire and a cook-out down by the swimming pool would have been great! The tennis courts were also lovely, but we did not partake. What a great place for a vacation and I'd love to return someday.

I wish I could attach photos to this review because if I could I would share with you a photo of our 1860s living history group in front of the house. We could not have asked for a better place to gather and enjoy the history of the White Mountains!
