Located a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean in southeastern New Hampshire, Lamie’s Inn’s colonial-style building dates back to 1740 and has long been a popular campaign stop for presidential candidates. Former guests include Dwight D. Eisenhower, who spent two nights here after his presidency with his family in 1963.
Though guest rooms feature period decor, they’re also equipped with modern amenities including private baths, refrigerators, microwaves, and cable TV.
The inn is also known for The Old Salt Restaurant, a local favorite serving fresh boiled lobster, New England clambake, and award-winning clam chowder in a colonial setting. The restaurant’s Sunday brunch buffet features a smorgasbord of fresh fruit, breakfast entrees, salads, seafood, hand-carved meats, desserts, and a 36-inch chocolate fountain.
A pleasant onsite pub with a nautical theme, The Old Salt Tavern has flat-screen TVs and live entertainment, making it a welcoming spot to watch a big game.
Each morning, guests wake up to a complimentary continental breakfast.
Hampton, New Hampshire: New England Resort Town with Award-Winning Beaches
Hampton’s namesake beach—Hampton Beach—is one of only four shorelines in the country named a “superstar beach” by the Natural Resources Defense Council. The award goes to those beaches deemed the safest in the United States thanks to a record of clean swimming water. Between catching and releasing sunrays, visitors can grab a bite or a beer at one of the many bars and cafés lining Ocean Boulevard.
