Billings Cabin

DOC Cabin (may be reserved by anyone)

Capacity: 14

Billings Lodge was donated to the Dartmouth Outing Club in 1966 by the Billings family. Initially considered a “white elephant” by DOC members, it quickly became popular due to its proximity to the Presidential Range and the other White Mountains.

Billings is a six-room summer cottage which has been partially winterized, located at the north foot of Mt. Madison in the Presidential Range. It sleeps 14 in its three bunkrooms and has a screened-in porch. In addition it has a kitchen, a living/dining room, an electric stove for cooking, a refrigerator, electric lights, electric heaters, and a spigot and wooden outhouse out back. The electric heaters don't do a great job of heating up the cabin when it's below freezing, although they work better for the bedrooms than the common areas.

Some of the best hiking in all of New Hampshire is just outside the door of Billings Lodge (such as Mt. Washington and the Presidential Range). Swimming and trout fishing are close by the cabin. A small picturesque stream, Cold Brook, is about 100 yards beyond the wood shed. The cabin is within easy reach of New Hampshire's finest alpine and nordic ski areas.

Billings is located 98 miles from Hanover in Randolph, New Hampshire, and is 50 feet from parking. In the winter, there is a small pullout able to fit a couple of cars, or guests can park at the Appalachian Mountain Club's Appalachia parking a half mile down the road.
