About the Area
One of the joys of being an innkeeper is helping our guests create that perfect getaway. Whatever the season, Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn, the Upper Valley offers a bounty of choices.
The local area has a lot to offer; just ask and we will tell you where you may golf, hike, go mountain climbing, bicycle, take a picnic or a scenic drive. And, of course, the country roads are dotted with fabled New England craft and antique galleries to explore.
In the summer, our landing dock on the lazy river provide a refreshing treat. You may want to explore the river in one of our canoes or kayaks. Or explore the back roads of Vermont and New Hampshire that seem designed for that nice long run or bicycle ride.
In the autumn, whether you join us for a Dartmouth football weekend getaway or just to admire the changing colors on both sides of the river, there is a slight nip in the air that offsets the soothing warmth of the outdoor spa.
In the winter, Lyme is also the home of the Dartmouth Skiway, a family friendly place, while cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating and other downhill facilities are all within an easy drive.
In the spring, when the sap runs, visit a local sugar house where you can watch the transformation of sap into “Amber Gold”, maple syrup. Make sure you taste hot syrup on snow – there is nothing better!
