June is the perfect time to visit New Hampshire, especially if you want to see the Lupine Festival (in Sugar Hill which is about a 15 minute drive), and all the lupines in full bloom. They are everywhere. We stayed at the InnSeason - South Mountain as an exchange with Interval International. The reservationist, with whom I confirmed the type of acommodations earlier in the week, assured me that we would have a luxury suite (full kitchen with oven, full fridge, dishwasher, and a one-bedroom). That didn't happen upon arrival as we were put in a hotel room with a partial kitchen. But, when I complained the next morning, the front desk immediately switched us to a luxury suite, which was great. The front desk service was outstanding, the rooms were immaculate, and the housekeeping staff very friendly.
The reservationist assured me t hat they had internet available, both in the lobby and the business center, so I convinced my husband that we didn't need to bring our laptop. Internet is available in your room for a daily fee. Since my husband planned to work, he attempted to avail himself of the computer early in the mornings so that he didn't get in the way of the other guests. The computer that used to be at the front/concierge desk is no longer there. The only desk, which is what they called the business center, was a buffet, which was not conducive to sitting in a chair to work, even if they had a chair. The first day he worked standing up with a mouse that wasn't fully functional. Wound up going to the library which was $2 for 30 minutes, and 30 minutes was the max allowed so I had to sign up for 30 minutes to add to his, then depart. Their library doesn't open until noon, so that did put a damper on our day trips. That was a disappointment,, but the only one.
Make sure you visit Mt. Washington. We chose to go on June 17, which the only day each year that "Bikers" are allowed to go to the top, but no cars. We took a tour bus, which was even better yet to leave the driving up over 6,000 feet with no guardrails
to a "park ranger." On top is an observation deck where the highest winds ever have ever been recorded.
