About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Aiken Manor is located at the foot hills of the White Mountains on beautiful Webster Lake in Franklin, New Hampshire. Built in the mid 1800's by famous inventor Jonas Aiken, the estate was often host to other inventors such as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Harvey Firestone.

Webster Lake is named after Daniel Webster, whose boat house is still on the property.

Aiken Manor is a quiet spot located close to shops, the Tanger Outlet Mall, several ski resorts, Fun Spot and Weirs Beach. The Estate also has several National Champion Shetland Sheepdogs and beautiful horses for petting and feeding.

Felt at home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our family get away. Quiet and peaceful but just a short drive to groceries and other amenities. My children loved the treats for the dogs and carrots for the horses that the owner left in our fridge. Coffee pot with pods was wonderful bonus in the morning. Webster lake which was right across the street was lovely to swim in and sit by in the evening.

Comfortable & clean

  • 5 of 5

Short but sweet! Had a great time with the family there. We and our dog enjoyed the trail next to the house a lot, as well as the lake. Well located away from crowds, but yet close enough to everything.

Owner's Response: Sure wish you could have stayed longer. You were so nice to put more carrots for the horses and treats for the dogs in the refrigerator. I will make it up to you on your next stay!

Well equipped property and Bronwyn was very welcoming.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location and we enjoyed using the kayak, the row boat, the bicycles and walking along the wooded trail in both directions. Cooked outside using the grill by the house as well the BBQ by the Lake - enjoyed using the lakeside picnic tables - a choice in the sun or shade!

Very enjoyable few days

Fabulous lakeside property.

  • 5 of 5

We travel north to beat the Tennessee Heat in the summer. Most mornings high 50's and afternoons mid-70's. Two docks and a swim Raft about 50 feet out. The lake was very swimmable with a sandy bottom. The Apartment is clean and well provisioned. There is AC and a fan. Beds are comfortable with plenty of pillows. We enjoyed visiting nearby New England Villages and walking the Rails-to-Trails behind the house with its own connecting path. Ms. Asplund is a charm to deal with and will make every effort to see you are well pleased.....I mentioned my favorite Coffee and magically the next day a box of Keurig cups was on my step. She takes pride in her property and it shows. I believe this to be a unique New England experience.
