Here’s a handy guide for getting to our Boston Outpost and local spots to pick up any supplies you may need. While there’s a lot to do in the area, we suggest taking a break from planning in excess and simply enjoying the time away from your daily routine and hustle.

Parking + Public Transportation

Nestled in the New Hampshire woods, your secluded escape is easily accessible from Boston. Driving is the quickest way to travel to your Getaway—parking is easy, just pull up right beside your tiny cabin. If you don’t have any wheels, you can take a Greyhound bus to Concord, then hop in an Uber or Lyft for the remainder of the journey.

Walks in the Woods

Take a trip down one of these nearby hiking trails in your Getaway cabin backyard.

Bear Brook State Park
Distance: 3.4 miles, about 2-3 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Dogs allowed on-leash
If you find yourself craving some calming time by the water, Bear Brook State Park is your ideal destination. During warmer months, you can go for a swim or stroll along 40 miles of trails, leading to ponds, bogs and marshes. Catamount Trail is a scenic hike through the woods.

Oak Hill Trails
Distance: 5.8 miles, about 2-3 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Dogs allowed on-leash
For a long but not difficult hike, try the trail leading to the old fire tower. Climbing the fire tower will provide you with a lovely panoramic view of the area.

Notes on Nature

  • New Hampshire is known as the Granite State, so if you’re not sure what type of rock you’re looking at while you’re exploring, granite is a good guess.
  • On a clear day, you might be able to see Mount Washington, the tallest peak in the Northeast at 6,288 feet.
  • The wild animal you’re most likely to encounter during your stay is the white-tailed deer, which has a population of about 100,000 in New Hampshire.
  • The Town Forest is just a short walk away. We encourage you to go by foot, but if you need to drive, there’s a small parking lot within the forest that you can park at.
