Travel Nav

There's something to be said for simplicity.

The thrill of a warm breeze as you rock slowly back-and-forth, back-and-forth on a wraparound porch. Watching the sun set behind impressive peaks. Dipping your toes into cool spring waters mid-hike. These kinds of experiences await in your escape to The Inn at Thorn Hill and Spa.

Of course, simple can be luxurious as well, especially as this AAA Four-Diamond award-winning New Hampshire resort, which continuously garners high praise from the likes of Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, The Washington Post and Wine Enthusiast. Here, bath time means a soak in a two-person Jacuzzi, with a fired-up gas fireplace waiting to warm you up. Forest views, antique furniture, king beds and afternoon teatime mean you never have to leave your lodgings for a sweet stay.

But if you're looking for a little slice of romance beyond your bedroom, set out to explore nearby Jackson and the other White Mountain villages with their white-steeple churches and rolling hills. Evoke those sweet early days of love with a visit to Jackson's Honeymoon Bridge, built in 1876. Then, channel your adventurous side with a hike to Jackson Falls or a kayaking trip around Conway Lake.

Learn how to relax the Thorn Hill way by playing a few holes at the Wentworth Golf Club or enjoying a soothing massage at the inn's own spa. And, finally, indulge in one of life's simple pleasures: fine dining. The Inn at Thorn Hill's dining room offers delicacies from smoked-duck egg rolls and butternut squash soup to a braised lamb shank and a decadent lobster pot pie.

You've never been faced with a more effortless decision.
