Families with Children
Children of all ages are welcome and pampered. We have two folding cribs, a high chair, character dishes, sippy cups, blankets, pillows and changing pads.
The sound-insulated Library is ideal for indoor play, with extra padding under the carpet, safety latch on the back door, and our intercom can be set to listen from the dining room, so kids can play while parents relax upstairs. There is so much space that even if everyone is hanging out at the Inn there is peace and quiet. As well as craft supplies, we have some musical instruments, nature guides, books, movies, puzzles, games and fun options for all ages.
The pond is the biggest attraction for most kids (of all ages), as it is full of frogs and tadpoles. You may even see a blue crayfish or salamanders and newts. The water is clean and we do not use chemicals on the lawn. Children and dogs can play safely. We offer children’s cooking classes, gardening and other healthy activities as free options.
The surrounding mountains and lakes offer boating, swimming, skiing, hiking, riding, shopping, farms, fairs and festivals, live shows, museums, science centers, state parks, Audubon centers, AMC trails, excellent hunting and fishing, and countless natural wonders.
Plymouth State University, just a few minutes away, has a beautiful ice skating arena that is open to the public most of the time. The arena has skate rentals and concessions and is located near the Plymouth downtown area with charming shops, restaurants, the Silver Cultural Center, and Flying Monkey Performance Center.
Over the river and through the woods the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center offers trails, native animals and an education center that is fun and enlightening for all ages.
In winter we offer ski and stay packages, with updated tubing and snow-boarding facilities nearby. In season, family friendly activities are all around us including Polar Caves, Sculptured Rocks, Wellington State Park, Ruggles Mine, tubing, rafting, zip lining and much more. Visit the websites on our Location page to find the options that please you. When you make your reservation, we will be happy to help you plan and make arrangements for your fun!
