John Rand is one-room cabin located on the eastern side of Mt. Moosilauke, about 50 miles from Hanover.


John Rand has a large bunk-bed for sleeping, with room for four mattresses on the top and four on the bottom (for a total capacity of eight). The cabin is notable for its skylights and recently-installed wood stove, which has a glass front door. It does not have a gas stove or gas lighting.

John Rand also boasts one of the nicest privies of all the DOC cabins - unfortunately, it is about 200 meters and two stream crossings away from the cabin. Be sure to bring provisions and warm clothing if you attempt a trip to the privy!
