The DOC has 11 cabins available for rent in New Hampshire. Though three of the cabins are located in the Second College Grant and are only available to students, alums, and employees of the school, all other cabins are open to the public. The cabin styles range from two-story modern designs such as the recent Class of '66 Lodge to older one-room structures like Hinman Cabin. More information can be found at the DOC Website.
