Copple Crown Camp features a hickory queen bed, hickory nightstands, a full bathroom, and a small kitchen with a pine peninsula and barstools. It has outdoor seating and a charcoal grill, and looks out onto the Great Lawn and orchard. Copple Crown Mountain can be seen at the end of Rust Pond, and celebrates our NH mountains with it's alpine theme!
The Grey Shingles Camps property has been a cottage colony since the 1940's. We recently completed extensive renovations, and our guests are enjoying the vacations of old with a modern sensibility! The property consists of five acres of open lawn, woodland, an orchard, and a private waterfront with beach on pristine Rust Pond. Magnificent old sugar maples, red maples, Norway spruce, and white pine will greet you as you enter the property through the fieldstone pillars. Massive stone walls line the property boundaries on both sides
At the top of the drive is our pickleball and basketball courts. The Grey Shingles Camps Rec Hall will be in view, with it's old 'Welcome to Grey Shingles' sign. Built in the 1920's for the girls' camp 'Ehawee', the Rec hall provides a spacious gathering place for our guests as well as our Reception desk. Amenities include a living room with a large screen cable TV, pingpong, foosball, and many other games. There is a new full kitchen, dining area, screen porch, and a sun deck overlooking the lawn and orchard. Our rates include the use of all Rec hall facilities!
Behind the Rec hall are the five fully renovated Grey Shingles Camps in the shade of the towering Norway spruce trees. The camps look out onto the Great Lawn which features volleyball, bocce, horseshoes, and corn hole games to name a few. There is also a swing set. Our stone fire pit accommodates our guests for frequent campfires with s'mores. Apples in the orchard during late summer and autumn are numerous, delicious, shared by all! From the orchard, through the opening in the stone wall, is a gently sloping woodland path which leads to our Rust Pond waterfront. Guests enjoy relaxing and swimming at our sandy beach, and taking out the kayaks, SUP's, canoe, and sunfish. The fishing is terrific so bring your rod and tackle!
