Winter sports of all kinds are available here in the Franconia Notch area. Downhill and cross-country skiing are probably the most popular winter pastimes. Snowshoeing, tubing, ice skating, ice climbing, winter hiking, or just plain relaxing by an open fire with a good book are all available. We are able to provide our guests with discounted Cannon Mt. lift tickets. Other nearby ski areas include Bretton Woods and Loon. The Franconia Cross-Country Center is just 2 miles away and has an extensive trail system throughout the Easton Valley.
In June the towns of Franconia and Sugar Hill are host to the Fields of Lupine Festival, a spectacular show for photographers of all abilities.
In the summer our guests enjoy hiking the nearby mountains, flying from the Franconia Soaring Center, swimming at Echo Lake, exploring Franconia Notch and all it has to offer. There are several golf courses in the area to test one's skills. Check the Franconia Notch Chamber web site www.franconianotch.org or the White Mountain Attractions www.visitwhitemountains.com for a more complete list of area events.
Our busiest time is from mid-September to early October when the trees are dressed in a vivid display of color and the hills turn into a rainbow of reds, oranges and yellows. It is a good idea to make reservations early for this time period, and if you can, plan your visit during the week when the roads and restaurants are less crowded.
