Destination guide

Snowy fun and summer sun

Tucked away in the foothills of the White Mountains, a short drive from the Mount Abrams and Sunday River ski resorts, Bryant Pond is a charming little village with huge outdoor adventure possibilities. With cozy get-away-from-it-all log chalets with their own private hot tubs and sleek and luxurious modern homes on offer, choosing a Bryant Pond vacation rental is ideal for enjoying snowy New England winter sports or, from late spring through fall, incredible hiking and biking trails in forested hillsides with beautiful mountain vistas.

Things to do

An unusual claim to fame

The village of Bryant Pond has an unusual claim to fame: it's the home to the largest telephone in the world. The artwork was inspired by recent local history – that of Elden and Barbara Hathaway, operators of the last hand-cranked phone system in the USA. They retired in 1983 and the village switched to direct dial, but you can visit the sculpture in Bryant Pond's Remembrance Park, just a short walk from the lake. Stroll around the pond, fish or explore the shoreline. On its south side there is a small boat launch. Several nearby lakes, besides Bryant Pond, are known for their excellent bass, trout and salmon fishing.

Activities

Ski runs and mountain trails

The village of Bryant Pond offers family fun and challenging outdoor activities year-round. Choose a Bryant Pond vacation rental December through March for skiing, snow tubing, dog sledding and other snowy adventures. By April, the snows begin to melt, the temperatures start to climb, and the trails begin to open to hikers and bikers. By mid-summer the temperatures reach the 70s and you can enjoy the swimming holes, lake fishing, boating and local golf courses. There is so much fun to be enjoyed here – from mineral hunting in the Oxford Hills to whizzing down the hillside on a local zip line tour.

Weather

Bryant Pond through the seasons

In the winter months, when the snow is heavy and the air crisp and clear, visitors come here for the skiing and snowboarding, not to mention the fun family events and festivals. The local ski areas of Mount Abrams and Sunday River are known for their family-friendly slopes and activities. Both open in the summer months to give visitors access to miles of hiking and biking trails. At Sunday River, the lifts operate through the seasons, so you can enjoy the spectacular sun-kissed mountain vistas from North Peak throughout the summer without the challenging hike.

Natural features

Impressive peaks and forests

The local Oxford Hills are a draw for rock hounds, with the promise of glittering treasure like Maine tourmaline, pegmatite, feldspar and mica. Hiking through these wooded hillsides offers stunning views over local broadleaf forest. In just half an hour, you can be in White Mountains National Forest – a breathtaking panorama of mountainous hardwood forests, crystal-clear mountain lakes and streams and majestic alpine peaks. At the center of the park lies Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeastern United States.
