Horse and Hound Inn
- Posted in Inns and B&Bs
Located in the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Horse & Hound opened in 1946 as a tasteful inn, tavern and restaurant. With three fireplaces, knotty pine paneling and an expansive lawn and gardens, 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 fully restored to its classic New England style, the Horse & Hound again welcomes guests for lodging and dining. Sited on a quiet country road and surrounded by eight private acres bordered by Tucker Brook, the inn invites you to relax and unwind after an active day in the Great Outdoors.
The Horse & Hound is committed to simple, American elegance. Guest rooms are furnished with solid maple furniture hand made by local craftsmen in North Haverill, New Hampshire. Linens and towels are all-cotton. Winter blankets are 100% wool manufactured by Pendleton in the United States. Window shades are custom made at the Alameda Shade Shop in the San Francisco Bay area and ceiling fixtures are solid brass, hand made at Rejuvenation Lighting in Portland, Oregon. All bathrooms have new tile floors replicating a 1940’s style. Many have original American Standard fixtures refurbished for another century of use.
High speed Internet is available throughout the building. However, rooms are intentionally free of electronics. Guests often remark on the unusually restful sleep they experience in these tasteful, understated surroundings. Air conditioning is provided in the warmer months.
Breakfast is included in the cost of lodging. Selections change with the seasons and may include fresh baked goods, egg dishes, fruit, homemade granola and yogurt.
