Located at the base of Mount Monadnock in tranquil New Hampshire, the Inn at East Hill Farm maintains its tradition as a destination resort where families and friends can meet in a relaxed atmosphere that promotes true recreation.

No matter what the season, there is always something to do at the farm, including: boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, water skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating and swimming indoors or outdoors. If vigorous activity is not on your agenda, there are plenty of comfortable and inviting spaces for reading a good book or having a quiet conversation. Activities are planned specifically for children — crafts, campfires and games among them.

Hosting numerous groups, of many different sizes and ages, it is no wonder that for over 70 years, the Inn at East Hill Farm is “where traditions begin.
