Summer Activities

The Mt. Washington Valley is a perfect location to view New Englands spectacular scenery.  The surrounding White Mountain National Forest offers plenty of opportunites for scenic drives and fabulous hikes.  Our bed and breakfast is located right on The White Mountains Trail which was designated a National Scenic Byway.   The Trail is a loop tour that winds through sections of the 800,000-acre White Mountain National Forest and past many of the region’s most popular attractions.   In the summer, the  Mt. Washington Valley offers everything from horseback riding to hiking with plenty of biking, swimming, waterfalls and mountain top adventure in-between.
