We stayed at the Horse & Hound inn for 2 nights in the autumn. The inn is in a very beautiful setting, off the beaten track. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful with advice on how to get the most out of the local area. We visited to experience the colours of the Fall and were treated to an exceptional display along the Kancamagus highway. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food and service were both excellent. Our room was lovely with a double aspect garden view. There are no televisions in any room which is refreshing. There is also a lovely library area, perfect for relaxing with a pre-dinner drink after a day outdoors. We would recommend this B&B for anyone visiting the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- THE RETURN OF A CLASSIC. The Horse and Hound, located in the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire, first opened in 1946 as a tasteful inn, tavern and restaurant. With three fireplaces and knotty pine paneling throughout, the inn welcomed everyone from Hollywood stars to local outdoor enthusiasts and quickly established a reputation for great food, elegant lodging and warm hospitality. Now celebrating its 65th anniversary, the Horse and Hound was closed from December 2010 through June 2011 while undergoing a comprehensive restoration to its classic lodge style. Now completed, the cheerful tavern, gracious dining room, elegant lobby, handsome library/lounge, and nine restful guest rooms once again invite you to unwind and relax after an active day in the Great Outdoors. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to welcoming you back. FOOD, SPORT & STEWARDSHIP OF THE GREAT OUTDOORS. ... more less
