Nunnemacher Cabin

DOC Cabin (may be reserved by anyone)

Capacity: 20

Nunnemacher Cabin (pronounced Noo'-nah-mah'-ker), named in honor of Jacob R. Nunnemacher '42, was built in 1957 to be used by the Winter Sports Club. It was renovated and opened to the public in 1997.

Nunnemacher is a large, three-room framed building located between two ski trails on Holt's Ledge at the Dartmouth Skiway in Lyme, New Hampshire. It sleeps twenty (mattresses in the living room) and has a large living room, a kitchen/dining room with a gas cook stove and a wood stove for heat. The loft is currenty closed off. It is well insulated and makes an excellent cabin for winter use. The cabin has a few battery powered lamps, but you should plan to bring your own backup light source. During summer there is a rainwater collection basin which provides water suitable for washing dishes, but you'll want to bring your own drinking water as there's no reliable source nearby. 

During ski season, snow-making equipment is used on the nearby ski trails at night, making some noise.

Nunnemacher is located 10 miles from Hanover on the Dartmouth Skiway in Lyme, New Hampshire, and is a 3/4 mile uphill hike from parking. This hike can be strenuous and small children or those unnacustomed to hiking may find it challenging. Please prepare accordingly.
