Alder Brook Cabin

DOC Cabin in the Grant

Open to Dartmouth students, alums and benefits-eligible employees

Capacity: 6

Alder Brook Cabin was built in 1947 under the direction of Ross McKenney and Alex MacPherson '44. It was intended as a hunting and fishing base camp when the College Grant was first opened to Outing Club students for recreational purposes. It is known and valued for its primitive character.

Alder Brook is a one-room cabin located on a small knoll overlooking the brook from which it takes its name. It sleeps six (two triple-decker bunks with mattresses) and has a porch, a gas light, a woodstove for heating and a gas stove for cooking.

Alder Brook is 140 miles from Hanover and 200 feet from parking (up to 3 miles in winter).
