Located about 1.5 hours north of Boston on Lake Winnepausakee, Wolfeboro is a true New England town and The Pickering House Inn is a perfect representation of Wolfeboro. Originally built in the early 1800s, The Pickering House was recently renovated. The renovation gave the inn all of the modern-day amenities while maintaining the original charm of the building.
After taking a tour of the common areas, and deciding which sofa I was going to curl up on later, I head to my room. The rooms have the best amenities. From heated bathroom floors to Ursa Major face wipes (I use Ursa Major face wash on the reg, so I was pumped to see these products), they have everything you might need to feel right at home. (And yes, there are robes.)
For dinner, I’m heading to the Pickering House barn to celebrate the release of their signature Pinot Noir. There’s nothing like a cozy barn dinner, some delicious red wine, and great company.
Post-party, I roll myself to bed. Honestly, I don’t think I moved at all that night. Which makes me think I need to buy that mattress.
One I pull myself out of bed, I’m ready for coffee and brekkie. I head to the gathering kitchen. I grab some fresh berries while Chef Patty makes the most delicious egg, butternut squash, and mushroom dish. Truly, it’s one of the best hotel/inn breakfasts I’ve ever had.
I need to head back to Boston after breakfast so I sadly pack up my things, say goodbye to the team at The Pickering House Inn, and hit the road.
This was such a great weekend trip! An easy drive from Boston (or Portland, Maine) so it’s perfect for a night or two away from home. And so relaxing. Personally, I can’t wait to go back.
A million thank yous to The Pickering House Inn in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire for generously hosting me! If you’re interested in staying at The Pickering House Inn, visit their website at www.pickeringhousewolfeboro.com. All opinions and images are my own.
