Research at the Class of '78 Bunkhouse

The new Class of '78 Bunkhouse is available for rental by researchers wishing to stay at Moosilauke while they conduct their studies. In order to accommodate research groups, we will not take reservations from the public for the '78 Bunkhouse until the 1st of the month prior to the month of stay. For example, on May 1st we will open to general reservations for '78 for all of June.

For researchers interested in using our facilities, please email moosilauke.ravine.lodge@dartmouth.edu with the dates you are interested in staying at '78 and a description of the research project. See the Research at Moosilauke page for more information.

Availability

This spreadsheet shows rough availability for dinner and lodging. Green means there is availability, yellow means close to full, and red means full or unavailable that night. We do keep a waitlist, so feel free to let us know if you'd like to be notified in the event of cancellations. If a certain day is reserved for a student event, then we will only be taking student reservations. The column on the far right shows any after-dinner programming we will have on a given night. We are still open to the public for dinner reservations on these nights (though there may be an additional fee for concerts).

Pets

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.

Alcohol

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.
