Hinman Cabin

DOC Cabin (may be reserved by anyone)

Capacity: 9

Hinman Cabin II was built in 1960, under the direction of Ross McKenney, Eric Sailer '60, and Jack Prescott '61, to replace the first cabin built on the site as part of the cabin chain between Hanover and Mt. Moosilauke.

Hinman is a one-room cabin located in the woods along the shore of Reservoir Pond. It has sleeping space for nine (four bunks plus a loft for five more) and has a porch, gas lights, and two stoves, a woodstove for heating and a gas stove for cooking.

Hinman's lakeside location provides excellent opportunity for swimming, fishing, and boating. A canoe with paddles and PFDs is available (inquire at the DOC office to make sure it is there). Hinman also provides a base for hiking and ski touring. There is a great view from the summit of nearby Smarts Mountain.

Hinman Cabin now has a wheelchair accessible ramp and an accessible privy to facilitate use by guests that require those accommodations. Please consult with the Cabins Manager when making your reservation to obtain access to this privy.

Hinman is located 17 miles from Hanover between Lyme and Dorchester, New Hampshire, and is 200 feet from parking.
