Dogs are welcome at the Ravine Lodge. Owners are responsible for dogs at all times and waste should be cleaned up immediately. Because of food service regulations, they may not be in the main room during food service. Please be aware that because of the room configurations, you should plan to book an entire room for your party so that no other guests are surprised to be sharing a room with your four-legged friend.

There is no cell service or Wi-Fi at the Ravine Lodge. There is a guest phone available on the bottom level of the main building, should you need to make or receive a call. That number is 603-764-9786. We hope you'll enjoy being present and unplugged during your stay here! 


Guests are welcome to bring beer or wine to enjoy with their meal; however, the Lodge does not have a liquor license and the crew cannot serve alcoholic beverages. In accordance with campus policy, hard alcohol is not permitted at the Lodge. All visitors, groups, and events must comply with New Hampshire state law concerning alcohol. All Dartmouth students and student groups must comply with the College's alcohol and other drugs policy. Drinking games are not permitted in the Lodge, bunkhouses, or on the adjacent grounds. All guests are expected to behave in an appropriate manner at the Lodge. Violation of any of these policies could result in a guest being asked to leave, a call to the local police, and/or, for students, a report to their dean.

Damage and Cleaning Fees

Any guests visiting the Ravine Lodge may be charged a cleaning fee for excessive mess left behind or replacement of damaged property. Please be respectful of our space, which is a home to many students, alumni, and community members.
