Below are 10 of the most picturesque and nostalgic tourist cabin or cottage courts in New Hampshire's White Mountains, each of which is at least 50 years old (the oldest nearly 100) and has a minimum of eight units. Prices listed are daily rates for the summer season (some are open year-round); cabin capacity varies between 2 and 6 people. Weekly rates can be considerably cheaper. All units have their own separate bath and are heated (though not necessarily with wood-burning fireplaces), and many are pet friendly (fee sometimes charged). For a full list of cabin and compound amenities, which can include full kitchens, screened-in porches, fire pits, swimming pools and playgrounds, contact the individual operators.
