Warm summer breezes have seamlessly transitioned to crisp autumn air. Fall is officially here, and fall foliage season in New Hampshire is underway. Though the entire New Englund region is renowned for its vibrant displays of reds, oranges, greens, and yellows, there are perhaps no regions more picturesque than New Hampshire’s Lakes Region in the fall. Whether you choose to get out on the lakes themselves or hike above them for a birds-eye view of the colorful displays, you can’t beat a fall getaway to the Lakes Region. Book your stay at Lake Winnisquam’s only waterfront Bed and Breakfast, and experience a delightful fall in New Hampshire.
It’s pretty hard to go wrong during the fall in the Lakes Region. Everywhere you turn, you’ll be rewarded with dazzling displays of fiery reds and oranges, mixed with bright pops of yellows and greens. From the shores of our Lakefront Bed and Breakfast, you can enjoy these colorful displays without going far. Stay close to the property, get out on the water, or get the best views by hiking up in the surrounding mountains. Here are our favorite ways to experience the beautiful fall foliage season in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire:
- Get out on the water with Squam Lake Cruises. You’ll enjoy a comfortable 1 ½ hour boat tour around beautiful Squam Lake. Along the way, you’ll enjoy stunning fall foliage reflected into the still waters of the lakes. You’ll also be treated to a tour of historic homes, scenic mountain views, and remarkable wildlife, including Loons.
- Hike the West Rattlesnake Mountain Trail. Hiking a quick mile up this trail will treat you to some incredible views. The trip up includes both stairs and plenty of rocks along the pathway, but it’s beyond worth it. Views from the top include Squam Lake and Lake Winnipesaukee, as well as the fiery hillsides all around you.
- Cruise Lake Winnipesaukee. Take a cruise on the historic boat M/S Mount Washington around Lake Winnipesaukee, which in and of itself has been a tourist attraction for decades. This boat has been in service since 1940, but the service has been around since 1872. Though you’ll be on a crowded boat with about 1,250 other visitors in search of some spectacular fall foliage, the journey along the 21-mile long Lake Winnipesaukee is still worth every second.
- From spring through fall, the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad takes visitors on excursions around Lake Winnipesaukee. The journey is a delightful trip, that offers visitors a choice between one and two hour trips along the 7-mile waterfront journey. In the fall, foliage trains offer visitors different routes, including a four-hour trip from Meredith to Livermore Falls, as well as an all-day excursion to Lincoln. It’s both a relaxing and beautiful way to experience fall foliage.
