Accommodation Description

  • Kid-friendly
  • Pets allowed
This spacious tipi for rent in Lyman, New Hampshire, near the Moore Reservoir, is perfect for a unique camping getaway in New England. The tipi can comfortably sleep six adults; for hanging out, it can easily fit about a dozen adults. There is room to pitch a tent near the tipi for overflow sleeping space. The tipi is about 22 feet in diameter and 24 feet tall. It has a fire pit in the center to create that wonderful ambiance of an open, crackling fire.

The comfortable furnishings consist of four five-foot-long log couches, plus two more outside. These are basically high-end wooden benches. There are also several end tables, sleeping platforms,and tables that can be arranged to form two twin beds or one queen-size bed. Guests are encouraged to bring their own padding and blankets. The tipi is also equipped with long-handled retractable forks for easy marshmallow toasting, a grate for cooking, candles, and everything guests will need for building a fire.

The tipi and the land it sits on are a wonderful way to experience the wildness of nature. Wildflowers pop up seemingly overnight in the spring, later on there will be lots of raspberries and blackberries. If guests are into nature, there's always something intriguing to discover; plants, flowers, berries, trees, mushrooms, the ever-changing properties of the ponds and brook, beavers, turkey, pileated woodpeckers, deer, and the hoot of a barred owl. With all of this and the beautiful mountain views, this property is a great back-to-nature experience.

Generally speaking, the tipi is a non-manicured, wilderness experience. The hosts do lots of tipi and property maintenance and try to keep the driveway and main trail to the ridge clear, but trees fall down and guests may have to step over some tree trunks. Lately there has been a lot of beaver activity right by the footbridge. It's really fun way for guests to see all the pointed stumps of the trees they have taken down, but that does mean things aren't as tidy as some would like. There are no kickball fields. Most of the land is forested with rolling hills. It is wooded and wild which means there are ticks. Ticks are often more plentiful in the spring and fall.
