Nunnemacher is a large cabin located on the Dartmouth Skiway in Lyme, New Hampshire.

Description

Nunnemacher is a very large cabin, with a 20-person sleeping capacity, but still feels quite cozy. It has two rooms on its lower level: the large central room has a dining table, sink, gas cook stove, and wood stove. The smaller room contains another wood stove, along with a number of chairs and benches. Nunnemacher has a loft (essentially a second floor) which is accessible by ladder - there are mattresses for 20 here.

Although Nunnemacher does have a gas cook stove, it does not have gas lighting, so be sure to bring headlamps or flashlights!

Description: Heeler Overnight! Left campus around 5pm, and hiked up to cabin just after dark. Hike took about 20-30 minutes, pretty moderate. Parked at Dartmouth Skiway. Had burritos, chips, and salsa, mmmm. Wood stove got cabin heated quickly. All in good condition. Weather was somewhat overcast and foggy, temp in the 50s and 60s. Gas cook stove, but no lights. Watch for leaky pipe on woodstove, and door leading into the loft from outside. Back to campus by 9Ls!
