From the Zillow listing:


Delayed showings till September 3. Showings start at the open house on the 3rd from 9 to Noon. Sunday the 4th from 9 to 11. Nestled in Wonalancet – for the first time in decades this riverfront camp in the hamlet of Ferncroft is offered for sale. If you’ve been to the Ferncroft Trailhead – you’ve had to pass by Red Path Rd. This antique cottage is on a level one acre lot with 175 feet of direct frontage on the Wonalancet River! Very few times do properties come available here! It’s been used seasonally for many years, but now it is time for the next generations to take it on! The interior has been emptied out so it is easy to see the wood frame, the fireplace and chimney, and the high cathedral ceilings. The original camp is over 100 years old! Not quite as old is the rear section which has a rustic kitchen and cold storage/pantry. Both need a new roof! There’s a driven point well and old sewer system. We’ve been told there is enough room for a newer one some day! Do you want to rehab this very charming vintage camp? Or do you want to start all over with a new cottage? At this price point, there are both options. This location is in the heart of the great hiking trails found in NH. It is a truly unique and rare spot. Hike – cross country ski – snowshoe right from your front door onto miles and miles of trails. Enjoyed by so many hikers from all across the world, BUT the real estate here has been owned by only a few! Interested? Get in here and quick!
