The 4 paddle courts are heated for year round use. The complex is just one of many additions to the resort which was first developed in 1994 and operated solely as a golf destination for its current owners, LCJ Management, purchased the 18-hole course and over 600 acres of surrounding real estate in 2014.
Since then, the course was redesigned, becoming the only Nicklaus designed course in the state and rated #6 worldwide for design and value amongst over 400 Nicklaus courses worldwide by NBC Sports/Golf Pass. The existing banquet facilities were expanded and on-site restaurant, Panorama Six82, turned into a premier, year-round dining establishment, rated #1 in the White Mountains by the NH Lodging and Hospitality Association.
Having already earned the distinction of a top destination for golf, Owl’s Nest recently opened The Lakehouse, a brand new timber frame lodge capable of accommodating groups of up to 500 people. It partially sits over 10 acres Lake Harold, the largest manmade recreational lake in New England. The resort’s extensive lodging facilities include 18, 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath gambrel units, 13 brand new 2 bedroom units, 26 new expansive guest rooms and 12, 1 bedroom, 1 bath nano cottages, all with a spacious living room, private decks and fireplaces and most with full kitchen and laundry facilities.

By next summer the resort will be adding 8 Tesla and 6 Electrify America Superchargers which will provide all types of electrical vehicles with full charges in less than an hours.
Phase 3 will include an additional 80-100 room hotel, complete with spa, large fitness facility, indoor pool, bowling alleys and restaurant, as well as another 9-hole, walkable golf course surrounding Lake Harold, ideal for all skill levels. The recently acquired White Mountain Country Club in nearby Ashland will also undergo course renovations and group function expansion. In all, another 60 million dollars will be invested in the resort in addition to the 40 million dollars invested since 2014.
