About This 1908 The Mulburn In Bethlehem New Hampshire
The Mulburn is one of the grandest remaining cottages in Bethlehem, New Hampshire. In the day, Bethlehem was the summer vacation destination with city visitors taking the train up to the White Mountains, staying in the grand hotels that lined Main St., and enjoying the fresh air.
In 1908, Sylvanus Morgan, architect and builder of the Mt. Washington Hotel, built this English Tudor-style home, formerly known as the Ivie Cottage. The Mulburn was the summer home of the Ivie family, an heir to the Woolworth fortune. Learn great stories about the home as a part of your viewing, including celebrity visitors and Thomas Edison’s gift to the family.
Over the years, the property has been a family home and hospitality ventures. Seven en-suite bedrooms allow your guest or family members to retreat off to their private quarters, and later join others on one of 3 covered porches. Sit back in a rocker and watch the world go by. Now, fast forward 115 years. All of the 30 grand hotels are gone. Most of the summer cottages remain.
With its rich history, Bethlehem has continued to evolve and draw visitors and residents to the area. With its close proximity to all of the White Mountain attractions, the artsy feel of town, and choices of restaurants and entertainment, it’s the place to be. Carry on as the Mulburn Inn or bring your creative entrepreneurial ideas and take the property into its next generation. With the Main St. location and closeness to town, the opportunities and possibilities are endless.
