New England Country Inn in the White Mountains
Within the White Mountain National Forest, the Presidential Range contains the state's highest peaks, each named for notable statesmen. Among the summits, Mount Washington, Mount Adams, and Mount Jefferson each soar more than a mile above sea level. To the west, Adair Country Inn & Restaurant overlooks these peaks from 200 acres of rolling slopes and lofty evergreens. Built in 1927 as a father's wedding gift to his daughter, the tranquil inn's double brick chimneys evoke a sense of classic New England charm, complemented by the hospitality of innkeepers Kimberly and Barry.
Four rustic fireplace rooms and two traditional rooms shelter antique furnishings beneath slanted roofs and dormer windows. For breakfast, you can try fluffy popover rolls and apple cider-cured bacon. The sweet smells of fresh baked cookies waft through the inn during afternoon tea.
Use your snowshoe rentals to explore the property's 200 acres of private trails, which cut through birch and pine groves where you might see moose, black bears, and white-tailed deer. You can also head across the street to The Rocks Estate Christmas Tree Farm for a festive trek.
White Mountains: Alpine Hiking and Wildlife Watching
Innkeepers Kimberly and Barry can point the way to prime hiking paths and wildlife-sighting hotspots, such as Moose Alley, a road famous for moose sightings. Also nearby, Cannon Mountain Ski Resort falls under the shadow of the White Mountains—a chain with 48 peaks that top 4,000 feet.
