Overview

Photos and Description of this Franklin holiday cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Aiken Manor is located at the foot hills of the White Mountains on beautiful Webster Lake in Franklin, New Hampshire. Built in the mid 1800's by famous inventor Jonas Aiken, the estate was often host to other inventors such as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Harvey Firestone.

Webster Lake is named after Daniel Webster, whose boat house is still on the property.

Aiken Manor is a quiet spot located close to shops, the Tanger Outlet Mall, several ski resorts, Fun Spot and Weirs Beach. The Estate also has several National Champion Shetland Sheepdogs and beautiful horses for petting and feeding.

Cozy, comfortable, welcoming...

  • 5 of 5

My mom, husband & I (with out yellow lab) stayed at Aiken Manor for a long weekend in early November - and our time there could not have been more pleasant. The cottage was clean and well stocked with everything we needed, and Bronwyn welcomed us when we arrived to show us around. The setting on Webster Lake is beautiful, the grounds are fabulous, and the history is so interesting.. Traveling with a dog is sometimes difficult - so we really appreciate that Bronwyn made our "furry child" feel welcome too. We completely enjoyed our stay and will most definitely return again.

Owner's Response: We really enjoy having vacationers like you. Your "funny child" was very well behaved. There is so much history here to share and things to do. You are now part of our extended "family". We look forward to seeing you again!

Wonderful stay in Franklin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Aiken Manor in Franklin. Bronwyn is a wonderful host and was very helpful in recommending places to eat and things to do in the area. The apartment is perfect; exceptionally clean, well stocked and a wonderful place to unwind. We liked feeding the dogs and horses with the treats left in the apartment and walking the rail trail adjacent to the property. We hope to return for a longer visit.

The guest house that we stayed in was both comfortable and quaint.

  • 4 of 5

This property was a nice home base for our visit to see our daughter in college. The guest house that we stayed in was comfortable and had all the necessary amenities to make our stay enjoyable. Additionally, the property owner (Bronwyn), went the extra mile to ensure that we had all we needed to make our stay enjoyable.

Beautiful property on an incredible setting!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent two nights at Aiken Manor. Bronwyn met us and gave us a tour of the property. Even provided us a bowl of fresh fruit! She couldn't have been nicer. Gave us great restaurant recommendations, both of which were fantastic. The property backs up to a wonderful old railway that's been converted to a walking/riding path. We spent the afternoon exploring. Our only regret was that we didn't get out on the lake. Too chilly and windy. Maybe next time! If you're in this area of New Hampshire, Aiken Manor is highly recommended!

True New Hampshire Experience at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing... Our hostess couldn't be any sweeter. The rental was perfect in every way. Clean and oh so well stocked... All that was needed was our clothes and very personal items. The lake is spectacular. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone that is looking to experience true New Hampshire beauty and hospitality.
