My boyfriend and I stayed at Horse & Hound on a trip up to Cannon Mountain for some skiing and had the greatest experience! The hosts were helpful and friendly, giving us ski tips and other advice. We chose to dine at the inn as well, and the food was delicious. Atmosphere at the inn is very cozy with multiple...

The Horse & Hound only gets better with time! Back again for a winter getaway after 2 years, the hospitality, accommodations, dining, and quintessential New England small inn atmosphere continues to be without rival. Unsurpassed quality makes the Horse & Hound one of our favorite homes away from home!

My husband and I wanted to spend New Year's eve in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We chose the Horse and Hound Inn based on the great reviews that we read on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! The Inn is absolutely lovely. It is elegant in a refined 1940's mountain chic style. The library is beautiful, filled with antiques,...

Just had a marvelous three night stay at this cozy bed and breakfast. Everything about this place shouts relaxation. From the moment Katie( the resident 12 yr old hound) greets you at the front door you know you're in for a treat. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Warm and cozy with great food and ambiance to spare....

It is just the right size with lovely gathering areas, cozy tavern and a great intimate restaurant. The entire Inn was spotless with great attention to detail. Our every need...

Beautifully restored inn done in a simple, elegant style. The innkeepers were welcoming and the food was delicious. The library is a nice place to relax and browse through their large collection of magazines which included Backpacker, National Geographic and many travel magazines. An area of the library also included maps of the area and all the ingredients to make...

We spent two nights here in mid-October. We were made to feel welcome the moment we stepped in the front door. The study was a wonderful gathering place in the evening. The tavern was a great place to get a pre-dinner drink. And the dining room had freshly prepared carrots from the garden, potatoes, and fall-off-the bone chicken, tender duck,...

We live in the area and had dinner in the tavern. The service and food were delicious. The place is very comfortable and cozy, very well designed complete with fabulous old wood flooring and dim lights.

We were there for two nights and would have "loved" to stay longer. Doug and Stacy could not have been more hospitable and helpful with what to do and where to go. Lovely grounds, well maintained, with hiking trails and running brooks. Our meals were simply fantastic. The Library was a haven to sit and relax, share a bottle of...

We stayed for two nights in this lovely inn. Doug was the perfect host, with great suggestions for evening meals (as the inn's restaurant was closed the nights we stayed), serving delicious, fresh and varied breakfasts and generally being so welcoming and friendly. Our room was very clean, the bed very comfortable and the complimentary brandy was a nice touch....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
THE RETURN OF A CLASSIC. The Horse and Hound, located in the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire, first opened in 1946 as a tasteful inn, tavern and restaurant. With three fireplaces and knotty pine paneling throughout, 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 celebrating its 65th anniversary, the Horse and Hound was closed from December 2010 through June 2011 while undergoing a comprehensive restoration to its classic lodge style. Now completed, the cheerful tavern, gracious dining room, elegant lobby, handsome library/lounge, and nine restful guest rooms once again invite you to unwind and relax after an active day in the Great Outdoors. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to welcoming you back. FOOD, SPORT & STEWARDSHIP OF THE GREAT OUTDOORS. ... more   less
