About the property

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.

Beautiful home and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the carriage house. We particularly enjoyed sitting in chairs by the lake. Two of us took a rowboat out at dawn to see the sunrise on the lake. We watched the mist rise and the sky get pink. It was an extra treat to see a family of loons, a family of bald eagles, osprey and a great blue heron sitting in the top of a tree. Other family members of mine enjoyed making puzzles on the large dining table. Snacks were provided to feed to the puppies and horses. Bronwyn was a perfect host!

Nice area, great host, cute dogs

  • 5 of 5

A great dog friendly place to stay. Easy access to plenty to do and eat in Tilton and can’t beat the private lake access. We had mostly bad weather but the house is cozy and comfortable with good AC so all was far from lost! We also enjoyed the kayaks and peddle boat on the lake with the good weather we did get.

Owner's Response: I am so very sorry about the weather. Now this weekend is supposed to be beautiful. Go figure. I am glad at least you were able to enjoy the lake for a little bit. Best, Bronwyn

Lakefront Gem

  • 5 of 5

The Aiken Manor Cottage in Franklin, NH was a pleasant surprise. There was plenty of room in the kitchen and living area for our family of 2 adults and 4 children and we never felt cramped. The property is amazing -- horses, puppies, and all the water toys you'd need and more for the expansive private lakefront. Bronwyn is amazing, accommodating, and very easy to work with. If we had know how incredible this property would be, we would have booked more nights! Without question, we will return to this lakefront gem in the future.

Great getaway with extras!

  • 5 of 5

Overall an excellent stay at the Aiken Manor! We were 2 couples hoping to relax, spend some quality time together and explore the area...and we did.

Accommodations: Cozy sleeping quarters, nice living room and kitchen areas, clean and well furnished. Really, all you need to bring is your personables, clothes and food! Not to mention what we took advantage of: the clean and clear lake, outdoor grills (yes both propane and charcoal fireplace), horseshoes, swimming and fishing. Docked my boat and every morning went fishing.

Location: With the lake across the street, we still ventured to Wolfboro (1+ hours away), Meredith, golfing (the Molajaki (sp?) is under renovation so we didn't go there) and the rail trail right behind the house. Kettlehead brewery in Tilton has great beers and wings...

Host: Very accommodating and pleasant. Never needed to ask for anything because it was all there. Even provided food for the horses and show dogs.

All in all, great stay and would consider coming back!

Extraordinary property with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

A very special place with all the charm and character of quintessential New England charm. Totally immaculate, fully stocked with everything you need and more. Wonderful hostess with excellent communication. So many extras; it is a sweet resort. The horses and puppies/dogs on property are charming, quiet and create a rural "stress relief" stay. Enjoy the beautiful lake with so many options to enjoy. A 5+++++ property and experience!!
