About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms Sleeps 4 People in Luxurious Comfort

Welcome to River Ridge Lodge! Our cozy, authentic log cabin is located in the beautiful White Mountains perched on a ridge overlooking the Wild Ammonoosuc River. To get to our cabin you will cross over one of the historic Bath Covered Bridges and discover one of our hidden treasures, the spectacular Swiftwater Swimming Hole (known as 'the Big Eddy'). The river is also a well known area for trout fishing as well as panning for gold and gems!

Our beautiful, brand new river-front log cabin, was constructed just 3 years ago. Unique from other log cabins, River Ridge Lodge is very open, bright and airy with cathedral ceilings, skylights and golden colored pine woodwork. The cabin is right above the river with its constant soothing sounds that will relax and unwind you as you sit on the expansive farmer's porch or enjoy the warmth of the sun on the very private sunning deck with its own private outdoor shower. With its South-West facing to capture the day long sun, River Ridge Lodge will deliver an experience of pure tranquility.

If you do not wish leave the world behind completely, you will also enjoy the modern amenities of satellite TV with a big screen HDTV, wireless Internet and a land line telephone.

The 1st an 2nd floor each have a queen bed and a full bathroom. The Master Bath has a beautiful, luxurious walk-in tiled shower. The 1st floor has an open kitchen, dining area and living room with a gas-burning wood stove and Big Screen HDTV. The large front porch is furnished with Adirondack chairs and chase lounges. It is a the perfect spot for relaxing, reading and observing nature. The Wild Ammonoosuc River is just at the foot of the hill with parking and access to a cleared 'beach' area at the edge of the Wild Ammonoosuc River. Bring folding chairs and a lunch or bottle of wine and enjoy a cooling dip in the crystal clear river water.

Our Cabin is located one mile from the historic center of Bath, home to the famous Brick Store. The Brick Store, built in 1824, today is America's the oldest continuously operating General Store. Bath is actually the home of three covered bridges with the Bath-Haverhill Bridge being the oldest covered bridge still in use in NH. Bath is noted for its historic architecture. Much of the Victorian era architecture in the village has been preserved, particularly in the Federal and Greek Revival styles. The town includes the village of Swiftwater and part of the district known as Mountain Lakes.

About Robin & Maryann

We are Vacation Property owners, manager and builders. We enjoy exceeding expectations of our guests and have found that paying attention to the details separates great properties from just good properties. We enjoy boating, biking, tinkering with sports cars, flying airplanes and traveling together along with our son (in his 4th year of residency as a Urologist), his wife and soon to be new baby. Coming from a large family myself, the few vacation trips we took as a family when I was young have been imprinted in my mind. Now we have cherished memories of vacations, travel and adventures we've taken with our 2 boys which will be with us forever.

Why Robin & Maryann chose Bath

We built this classic log cabin a few short years ago because of the spectacular location on the river and the peace and tranquility it brings us and the guests who have vacationed there. It has turned out to be quite the romantic getaway we hoped it would be. The White Mountains of New Hampshire are the most diverse, pristine and spectacular natural wonders in the Eastern US. We believe our authentic log cabin uniquely captures much of the grandeur of what the White Mountain region has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy the expansive front porch which faces the river and the very private sunning deck with private outdoor shower. To get to our cabin you will cross over one of the historic Bath Covered Bridges and discover one of our hidden treasures, the spectacular Swiftwater Swimming Hole (known as 'the Big Eddy'). The Wild Ammonoosuc River is just below the porch at the foot of the ridge and our small but private sunning beach is easily accessible by foot or car. Bring folding chairs and a lunch or bottle of wine and enjoy a cooling dip in the crystal clear river water. The river is also a well known area for trout fishing and panning for gold and gems.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was exactly what we were looking for and it was a great experience. A true log cabin by a river with all the privacy one could want yet only 15 minutes away from stores, restaurants and many attractions.

Loved the outdoor shower!

Thank you very much!

Fairytale in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This place is fairytale in the woods. It's very private yet not secluded. We enjoyed the balcony every evening, from where we could see just trees and the stream running. We drove down to the stream (you can hike too) and enjoyed stream. There is Robin's bathtub too in the middle of river. We slept and woke up to the sound of river everyday, which was amazing. This cabin is completely surrounded by nature. We were so overwhelmed with the comfort in the cabin and beauty around, we would definitely like to stay there again. Cabin was like our own home, very clean and there was nothing we couldn't find. Beds were very comfortable and what I loved most was the cabin's layout and design, it's big with lot of windows and everything is fitted in perfectly. Everything was so perfect that we couldn't find any drawback. Also, it is quite close to main locations like Franconia, Mt. Cannon. We enjoyed the beautiful drive everyday. Thank you so much Robin for letting us stay in that beautiful place.

The Ideal Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the great joy of staying at the River Ridge Lodge shortly after it was built, and it was so charming that I decided to propose that weekend. Now, my wife and I were thrilled to return and enjoy a peaceful week in the beautiful autumn nature of NH. We saw our first snow of the season on our drive up from NYC, and the cozy cabin was a warm welcome after the early drive. It even still has the fresh wood scent that we remember from before! We took a walk every morning down to the river to snap photos of the changing leaves and crystal clear water, and to listen to the serene sounds of the world waking up. I hope to be back one summer when I can take advantage of Robin's river bathtub!

We highly recommend taking a drive into Lincoln and eating at the Gypsy Cafe. It was just as good four years after our first meal there, and be sure to save room for dessert! There is so much great hiking around if you're an outdoorsy type, and the views of the mountains all around are simply breathtaking. You're close to popular destinations like Mt Washington and The Flume, and more off-the-beaten-track places like the Dog Chapel in St Johnsbury and Bread and Puppet Theatre and Museum.

We can't recommend this place highly enough. It is clean, comfortable, cozy, and very well-equipped. Robin was thorough and communicative, and had great recommendations for the area. I can't wait for our next visit!

Just what we needed to relax and enjoy nature

  • 5 of 5

Once you find this cabin you are all set to enjoy the peace and quiet of the GPS insisted I turn onto a road which was not got our the printed directions and was then fine in finding it. Be aware you are on gravel roads the last few miles.

The cabin is beautiful, the kitchen has great cookware and is really well equipped. There is no air conditioning but with the blinds pulled we remained cool. There is little traffic on the road in front of the cabin and there are neighbors across the road so even though you are remote with no cell service you know someone is close by.

We did the Cog railroad up Mt Washington which is less than an hour drive from the cabin. ...well worth the drive.

The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the indoor and outdoor shower. Robin was easy to work with.....we did need to search for the lock box for awhile to try to get in so that could be better explained.....

All in all this is a lovely rental and we would recommend it for anyone desiring quiet and privacy.

Our only drawback was needing to dispose of our own trash. We cook a lot and having smelly trash for a week in the heat was not pleasant....keeping it in the car to avoid bears was not an option in the heat. Driving it to Woodstock with the approved card on check out would have meant returning back to the cabin with the approval card which didn't make sense either. This was our only negative and was minor but others should be aware when renting you MUST dispose of your own trash.

Thanks Robin and MaryAnn for sharing your piece of New Hampshire

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful comments about our River Ridge Log Cabin. Your note about using your GPS to find the cabin will be very helpful to our other guests who have not been there before - as you discovered, we suggest that guests not attempt to rely upon their GPS! Because cell phone service is quite spotty in many areas of the White Mountains - and GPS maps not accurate, using the careful directions we provide is the very best way to get quickly to the cabin. While you do have to travel about 2 miles on excellent town-maintained gravel roads, its hard to believe that the cabin is less than 1/2 mile to Rt. 112 "as the crow flies". Thank you also for your comments about the trash. We recommend that trash be disposed of at the Transfer Station in Woodstock at least mid-week during hot summer weeks and certainly the day before your departure. That way what little remaining trash you have the day you leave can easily be taken along with you and disposed of at the nearest gas station if necessary. These are the small things that are easily managed to benefit from the true log cabin experience, privacy and tranquility that River Ridge provides. We are delighted that your overall experience was enjoyable.

Everything we had hoped for, and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, adventurous family vacation week at River Ridge! We brought our two young adult children, and there was plenty of room for the four of us in this beautiful cabin. It is well stocked and every detail is clean, convenient, and upscale. The town of Bath provides a perfect starting point for adventures throughout the White Mountain Region. We traveled to the Flume Gorge, hiked at Mt Washington and the "Presidentials", visited North Conway, walked to Bridal Veil Falls, and rode down to the Lakes Region to see the "On Golden Pond" region and enjoy the views and the quaint villages. We particularly loved the trek along the Kancamagus Highway, which provided us with some short hikes to waterfalls and along rocky rivers, some gorgeous scenic views, and wildlife sightings galore! We saw a black bear and three moose, among others. River Ridge Cabin is positioned along the Wild Ammonoosuc River, and we loved spending the evenings down by the river watching the sunset. The porch is beautiful and the outdoor shower is great - private and peaceful. This getaway would be beautiful in any season! The owner is thorough and responsive. It was a perfect vacation. We hope to visit again. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Katherine - Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful vacation experience with us and others who may be seeking the same. You certainly made the most of your time at our River Ridge Log Cabin, venturing out to the best of what the White Mountains has to offer. It is always heartwarming to hear how much guests enjoy the nature that abounds around the area and it is especially gratifying to know that the peace, tranquility and beauty of our location and the river is so appreciated. We could not have described such a fulfilling experience ourselves having spent a half-lifetime enjoying the NH White Mountain area with our family in all seasons. We furnished and decorated the cabin with the features and comforts that we most wanted and are always delighted that our guests enjoy and acknowledge the same. Thank you & best regards, Robin & Maryann Foote

What a fantastic and pretty log cabin! When we arrived we were charmed by this wonderful lodge. It is warm, definitively cosy and very, very comfortable. It has everything to make your stay a fantastic one. It is so well equipped and beautifully decorated. The river running at the bottom of the property is amazing. It is a perfect place to visit the White mountains as well as all the lovely villages in Vermont. It is easy access to Stowe and nearby Ben & Jerry, Woodstock and as far as Burlington. Also the lake regions in New Hampshire are a must to see. The nearest town of Woodville has everything you need. You must not miss the Brick General Store in Bath. We were there in the fall and the foliage was breathtaking. It is a perfect place for a vacation.

Words can't even describe our stay. First off it was for our honeymoon. We started looking 6 months out for a cabin in the woods in te mountains. Either out in Colorado or New England. I was born in New Hampshire and love the white mountains. After researching and going back and forth with the owner we were able to get out dates set, at a great price for what there is. Arrived late at night in the dark, thankfully had a good GPS and the directions from the owner otherwise wouldn't of found it. Once there absolutely amazing. Clean, everything you could need, the sound of the river flowing, the whole decor, everything was great. The gas wood stove, kept the cabin so warm and cozy. the area is great close to Vermont, Lincoln nh, mt. Washington, lakes region, etc. Definitely loved it and definitely want to go back sometime. Excellent experience with both the cabin and dealing with the owners. Recommend this to everyone!!!
