About Our Lodge-Based Programs

Our lodge-based programs allow participants to stay on-site at our modern and comfortable lakeside lodge. We keep these programs very small, ensuring one-on-one time with the instructor. Most programs are limited to four participants.

Lodging: We have lodging available for 3 people in our modern lodge. There are no private rooms; it is a large bunk room. There is also lodging available less than 2 miles away at the Windrifter Resort. The bottom floor of the lodge is our heated workshop, where projects are built in bad or cold weather.

Food: Our lodge is equipped with a modern kitchen. We provide no food but you can cook in the kitchen. There are two grocery stores and a variety of restaurants in town, 3 miles away.

Lake: We are right on Rust Pond, and have a canoe and kayaks available for you to use. We also encourage you to bring your own boats.

Woods & Trails: We also abut several hundred square miles of woods that you can explore on our recently-mapped trail network. The trails and woods are great for hiking, snowshoeing, mountain biking, etc. Click here for a map of the trails.

Schedule: We work together throughout the day. Our schedule isn’t rigid, but we like to start around 8 am, take an hour for lunch at midday, and quit at 4. There are some instances where we need to alter the schedule to drop off or pick up kids, etc.

Where: We’re 2 hours from Boston, an hour from Portsmouth and the seacoast. More information on our location is on our Travel Information page.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
