The Monadnock Region in southwest New Hampshire has been described as the Heart of New England, a tribute to its centrally located position within the six state region.

"One does not need venture far to find plenty to do and explore."

Numerous shops in nearby Peterborough are always delighting our guests with unique discoveries. The historic city of Keene is a college town with a college town variety of restaurants and pubs. And, there is Mt. Monadnock, recognized as the second most climbed mountain in the world, innumerable lakes, rivers, and streams, and tens of thousands of conservancy acres of wilderness for hiking, boating and fishing.

Plus there’s skiing and snow-shoeing in the winter, professional stage theater in the summer, and arts and artists the year around. It is what comes from being at the center of things.
