Benton is largely surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest. The town is crossed by the Appalachian Trail. A prominent natural feature in Benton is Mount Moosilauke, a popular site for hikers. The 4802' Mount Moosilauke is located, at least partially, in Benton. Moosilauke has been climbed for nearly 300 years. The mountain has long been a hiking destination, source of timber and winter playground. The summit is bare and has wonderful 360 degree views of the rest of the Whites, Vermont, and even into the Adirondacks on a good day. Come enjoy the country living in Benton!

Classic Post & Beam nestled into an appealing sylvan setting, larger than it appears, full of personality. Settle into your own private world and relax by the fire in your gracious living room or cozy family room, or sun yourself on the vast rear deck. Stroll along a meandering, tended path through the woods to your delightful meadow, and stop along the way by the stone bridge and vernal pool. The master BR is an indulgence, with its sitting area and decorative gas stove, separate dressing room, and spacious tiled bath. Feel like sharing? There are two other BRs with baths on the main floor, plus a unique loft overlooking the living room and two other bonus rooms upstairs. Custom shelving throughout the house will be perfect for displaying your books, mementos and treasures. Although tranquil and secluded, Lincoln and Loon are just 15 miles away; shopping in Woodsville is 12 miles; the "Big Eddy" swimming hole is even closer, and you're cheek to cheek with the Black Mt. trail.
