Ski Area
“Skiing, snowboarding, tubing in the winter, weddings and other events in other seasons. One of the most common reasons people stay with us is to go to Pat's Peak in the winter! Known as a great place to learn to ski or ride. It can get very busy during winter weekends especially so make sure to leave enough time to find parking and get up to the lodge if you have a scheduled lesson, etc. ”

“A local restaurant that is easy to access when getting on or off Rt. 202/9. It is in the same area as the hardware store and local veterinarian's office. Mostly meat-based food options but they do have a delicious homemade veggie burger! ”

“Our favorite restaurant in town. It's hard to say what is the best. It's a quiet restaurant, good for dates, though we also go as a family (with our six children). We probably like their appetizers the best. Obviously, you have to like middle Eastern food, but we highly recommend it. Rated #1 in NH for middle Eastern food by one of the region's papers.”
