Summer and fall of 2020 were still busy in New Hampshire despite the travel restrictions. Summer travel season got a late start this year, but once it got going travelers were coming and coming to NH. Our vacation rental guests come mainly from the Northeast to enjoy the Lakes Region and get out in nature, which NH has an abundance of.
If you avoided traveling because you personally wanted to avoid crowds, then now is the time to visit to New Hampshire. The scenery is beautiful even as the fall leaves have dropped and the snow has not yet blanketed the state (although Mount Washington is now snow covered). Although boating, kayaking, and jet ski season is over, the shoulder season weather is great for outdoor hikes and walks, as I write in more detail at this blog post. Scenic drives can be delightful even if it is a rainy day.
NH restaurants are open for indoor dining. They have tables spaced as needed. Many people are enjoying the more spacious dining experience. So as you enjoy scenic drives throughout NH you can stop for a meal.
Here is a sampling of scenes from shoulder season.
Scenes from Chocorua Lake in Tamworth.
Ahern State Park on Lake Winnisqaum in Laconia. A nice walk in the wood leads to the lake.
Mount Washington Hotel between busy seasons. Stop by for a scenic view and for lunch at their restaurant open to non-guests Stickney's (it looks fancier than it is in the photos).
There are many lodging options. Of course we recommend our quaint cottage vacation rental in Wolfeboro as the perfect place to relax and unwind in a private setting. Cable WiFi will enable you to work remotely if needed. We have had many guests this past season working remotely and they have been pleased with the WiFi. Our sunroom is perfect spot to set up your laptop and work facing the woods and having warm sunshine.
