Overview

About the property

Newly Constructed Log Cabin, just finished in 2017 on 17 acres with 1200 ft driveway provides privacy and fantastic views of Cherry Pond and from Mt Waumbek to Vermont. The Property abuts the White Mountain National Forest and you can hike out the top of the property to Owls Head and Mt Martha which is about 3.5 miles one way and 1600 ft of elevation change. Owls Head offers fantastic views of the entire presidential range. The 1st floor bedroom has a queen bed, sleeping loft has a queen bed and twin bed. All mattresses are new memory foam mattresses. The sleeping loft is accessed by a ladder, not stairs, so it is not appropriate for children under 5 or people unable to climb a ladder. The Cabin is off the electric grid with solar panels and batteries. One full bathroom with shower and an outdoor shower. Fantastic covered screened in porch to enjoy the views and there is a fire pit area with picnic table that also has fantastic views. Cell phone reception is very good with Verizon and there is 4G and LTE service. The cabin does not have WIFI or a TV. It is meant as a getaway and to get unplugged. During the day, the view is incredible and at night the stars are amazing with almost no light pollution.

In the winter season, it is recommended to have AWD or 4WD vehicles as the driveway is about 1200 ft long uphill with a 10% slope.

About Ben Edgar

Avid Hiker, which is what brought me to this property after hiking in the White Mountains for 25 years. Purchased the 17 acres of land two years ago and built the cabin in the past year on weekends while camping on site. I like to refer to the property as My Side of the Mountain, because of the young adult book by the same name.

Ben Edgar purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Ben Edgar chose Jefferson

You are out in the middle of nature abutting the White Mountain National Forest with no neighbors within view and the closet one is about 0.4 miles.

This newly built cabin is 1200 feet up a gravel driveway and is off grid with a solar electric system with batteries. We have 12 volt LED lighting and AC power for the fridge, hot water heater and outlets. There are also USB charging stations for your phones and tablets. Cell phone reception is very good with Verizon and there is 4G and LTE service. The cabin does not have WIFI or a TV. It is meant as a getaway and to get unplugged. The cabin does have two propane direct vent heaters and a propane stove in the kitchen. The Kitchen does have an undercounter fridge, stove, and large sink, but does not have a microwave or coffee maker. We do have a teapot and french press. We also do not provide a hair dryer.

What makes this cabin unique

There are two mountain bikes, hiking poles, and snow shoes at the cabin. We also have the AMC guidebook and trail maps for the white mountains to borrow and return please. The 20 mile long Presidential Rail Trail bike path is about 1.5 miles from the cabin.

Fantastic! Our family had a great time! Amazing location and incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week here in February enjoying skiing at Bretton Woods and taking in the local restaurants and shops. Ben did a great job making us feel welcome. Cabin is amazing with beautiful views. Close enough to all the local towns and far enough to have some solitude. I highly recommend this cabin!! Thank you Ben!

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

Let’s just say... 3 days wasn’t enough. This place offers serenity like no other place I’ve stayed in the White Mountain area. Although, a little tricky to find at night, the cabin is set way in the back leaving you feeling like your the only people in the area. Views are breathtaking and your 40 minutes from North Conway and Lincoln (it you enjoy snowboarding like we do). Looking forward to booking our next stay here in the summer/fall. Owner left instructions that were easy and left us alone... 5 stars.

Beautiful property. Could not have been more perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a beautiful home base for our weekend getaway. The property was beautiful and the owner was helpful in both providing us with information about where to spend our time and equipment. There was nothing he hadn’t thought of!
