Our driving excursion this summer covered 3500 beautiful miles. A definite highlight on our most excellent adventure was our stay at the newly renovated and restored Horse and Hound Inn. The new owners, Ron & Ken, have brought back the intimate charm and elegant simplicity of the Inn's 1940's start. It is warm and unpretentious, yet elegant and refined for all ages and interests. The Inn also operates an exceptional bar and kitchen. The food and drink are inspired by the heart soul of the staff and were obviously enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. We look forward to our next visit to the White Mountains, hopefully in the winter, and will definitely be repeat guests at the Inn.
- 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
