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 notable monoliths 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—each named for a nearby peak—shelter antique furnishings beneath slanted roofs and dormer windows. At the onsite restaurant, open for dinner Thursday–Monday, chef Orlo Coots whips up roast duck breast and other New England specialties. For breakfast, gourmet fluffy popover rolls and apple-cider-cured bacon emerge from the kitchen. The sweet smells of fresh-baked cookies waft through the inn during afternoon tea.
Nearby trails cut through birch and pine groves filled with moose, black bears, and white-tailed deer. In tribute to the outdoor splendor, the inn's extensive green policy includes recycling, composting, and raising seedlings as a registered tree farm.
White Mountains: Alpine Skiing in Historical Landscape
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. Slightly farther afield, Franconia Notch State Park and Crawford Notch State Park fall under the shadow of the White Mountains—a chain with 48 peaks that top 4,000 feet. A hike to the stunning Flume Gorge takes visitors past moss-covered granite walls, cascading waterfalls, and covered bridges.
