For avid hikers and weekend warriors alike, the Mountain Top Shelter is a summit for incredible camping. Atop Barrett Mountain at 1850ft, the Shelter has breathtaking views to the North and West including Mt. Monadnock. It is an Adirondack style lean-to that comfortable sleeps six campers. There are no amenities save for a well kept out house. Here it's hiking in with your gear, exploring the trails, sleeping under the stars, and waking up with the sun all while atop your own private mountain.
Please be aware The Mountain Top Shelter is a privately owned space located at the Windblown Cross Country Ski Area of New Ipswich NH. With your stay you are welcome to the private Windblown Trail Network for hiking which offers 30+ miles of forested trails and access to the larger public Wapack Trail. The Shelter is a classic Aridonack lean-to. It is a three-sided shelter built to house campers overnight. This specific shelter was handmade by the property owner from sustainable harvested timber on the land. It is a simple and quaint structure that sleeps six comfortably. There are no beds, cots, or pads as this listing is meant for overnight hikers and campers so pack a pad and sleeping bag in with your gear. There is also no power or water; prepared guests charge their devices in advance and pack water for their stay. There is a firepit for campfires when the weather permits.
- Fire Safety is a must. All campfires must be approved by Julie, your host.
- Carry-In Carry-Out - guests are must bring all trash with them upon leaving the property. Littering is prohibited.
- The Shelter is literally atop a mountain. You must be physically fit enough to successfully hike in and out of the property unassisted. I understand emergencies and injuries do arise, however do not book this listing if you or a member of your group has difficulty with moderate hiking.
- Any pets - specifically dogs - must be tagged with the owner's contact information. Dog waste must be disposed of properly.
