Moosilauke Ravine Lodge on Facebook


Last Updated: 9/18/21

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge and all its facilities remain closed to the public until further notice. This includes alumni and hikers. 

We are currently offering dinner service and limited overnights and breakfasts to students and employees of Dartmouth College. Dinners are served Tuesday through Sunday nights at 6:30pm. A full hot breakfast is offered Saturday and Sunday mornings, while a lighter hikers breakfast is offered on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Monday mornings. Overnights are available Tuesday-Sunday nights. Individual reservations can be made over the phone between 11am and 5pm. We are also offering free van rides from campus on most nights. Please call for specific van availability on a given date, and to reserve a seat in a van. 

The Gorge Brook, Carriage Road, and Ridge Trails are currently open, and are accessible from Ravine Road. Hikers must park before the fork in the road, on the downhill shoulder. No parking is ever permitted in the turnaround. The winter gate parking area is for head in, angled parking only. Improperly parked cars may be ticketed. We kindly request that hikers be courteous to the trails, remembering to keep off the fragile alpine vegetation, carry out all trash, and practice good social distancing. 

There is NO CAMPING allowed on land maintained by Dartmouth College (land within the dotted boundary on this map). Please note that there is also NO CAMPING allowed on Ravine Road. 

Please email or call us at (603) 764-5858 (11am-5pm) with any questions. If you are interested in volunteer trail maintenance opportunities in the Moosilauke area, please contact Willow Nilsen at for details. 

Please watch this space for further announcements. We look forward to seeing you at the Lodge when we re-open to the public!

Rustic Mountain Accommodations

The original Moosilauke Ravine Lodge was raised up in the late 1930s to serve some of the nation’s earliest competitive skiing. Today the Lodge provides a destination for the area and the entire Dartmouth community and the Upper Valley. The Lodge is open to the public for rooms and meals for the spring, summer, and fall!

Coming to the Lodge

- Reservations are required for dinner and overnight. Call (603) 764-5858 to make your reservation while we are in season. You must make your reservation no later than the night before the start of your stay. Please call between the hours of 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM. 

- Dinner is at 6:30 PM and breakfast is at 7:30 AM. Both meals are served family style. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions when you call to make your reservation. 

- Payment in full is required when making your reservation. Please click here for pricing information.

- The Lodge is about an hour from Hanover. Here's how you get there. 

Hearty Meals

The Lodge’s friendly and hard-working crew of students and recent alums serves up hot breakfasts and multi-course dinners from the Lodge’s cookbook, family-style in the Lodge’s main room.

Rustic Lodging

The Lodge’s guest rooms and the outlying bunkhouses can sleep groups from two to fourteen. It is recommended that guests bring a sleeping bag for overnight stays. Pillows, pillowcases, and woolen blankets are provided, while sleeping bags and linens are available for rent from the front desk. Showers and toilets are in the main building. All of the bunkhouses, with the exception of '74, are heated by wood stoves and have a set of composting toilets nearby.


The Lodge is a wonderful place to bring budding outdoor enthusiasts on their first adventures — with the promise of a hot shower, a hearty meal, and a cozy bed at day’s end. Over thirty miles of hiking trails connect the Lodge to Mount Moosilauke’s summit and trailheads, ranging from easy woods-walks to boulder-clambering ascents. For those interested in volunteer trail maintenance, a one-night stay at the Lodge is rewarded for every day of trail work. Here's a map of the trails on Moosilauke.


Because of its size, location and services, many groups use the Lodge for retreats and conferences. The main room and the conference spaces are available for student and alumnae/i groups for getaways and reunions, and for academic classes, offices and programs, for retreats, lectures, and conferences. The Lodge crew can also provide meals and snack breaks for groups if requested in advance.


Many weekend evenings see special events hosted at the Lodge, including music, storytelling, dances, or presentations. Check here for information on 2020 programming. 

The Bring Your Professor To Lodge Dinner program is a perfect way to enjoy Moosilauke, get to know your professors better, and share this place with them.
This program is available any night we have space, Sunday-Thursday. Dinner is on us, transportation is up to you. To keep groups intimate, up to three students can join one professor for dinner. Please call (603)764-5858 for more information or to make reservations at least a day in advance. You can check our availability here and request a voucher from the undergraduate dean's office here. Please bring your voucher with you on the night of your reservation.
There's no better study break! This program is sponsored by the Undergraduate Dean's Office.
Reunions at the Lodge During Reunions, we encourage members of each class to make individual reservations in advance for the night before the official on-campus reunion date. We do not take exclusive or large group reservations during this period so that all the classes have the opportunity to come enjoy the Lodge during Reunions! We do not organize class hikes, but can provide bagged lunches for groups if we are notified at least a week in advance. We also do not have any specific programming during Reunions unless requested. The following dates will be held for reunion classes until the end of April. On May 1st, any spaces still available will be released to the public for reservations.
  • June 11th: '70s
  • June 14th: '60s, '65s
  • June 17th: '79s, '80s, '81s, '90s, '95s
  • June 18th: '09s, '10s, '11s, '15s 

Welcome All!

The Lodge isn’t just for the Dartmouth community — local residents, hikers, and visitors to the area are all welcome to stay for a night, a week, or just come up for dinner. The Lodge is a great place to just get away and put your feet up.

We hope you’ll come stay with us soon!
