This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1880 edition. Excerpt: ...32 X 62 feet, and adjoining the other part of the house. By the annex he will have a larger dining-room, sixteen new sleeping-rooms, some of them 12 X 16, and part of them on the lower floor.

Some of the best fishing-places near the hotel are over to the South Bog, at the Dam, and in the lake at the Outlet. The Mountain View House is kept open from June 1 to Oct. 1.

Bald Mountain, which stands directly opposite the Mountain View House, commands a fine view of the surrounding country.
