Horse and Hound Inn - New Hampshire Gay Bed & Breakfast

The Horse and Hound Inn, located in the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire in Franconia, opened in 1946 as a tasteful inn, tavern and restaurant. With three fireplaces, warm pine paneling and an expansive lawn and gardens, 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 fully restored, the Horse & Hound again welcomes you for lodging and dining. Sited on a quiet country road and surrounded by eight private acres bordered by Tucker Brook, the cheerful Tavern, gracious Dining Room, elegant Lobby, handsome Library, and eight restful guest rooms invite you to relax and unwind after an active day in the Great Outdoors.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to welcoming you.

The Perfect Gay Getaway

Author: , September 14th, 2013

New Hampshire mapThe White Mountains of New Hampshire are absolutely gorgeous. The densely packed forests, rippling blue lake water, and towering peaks all look like something from off of a postcard (which is fitting, I suppose, considering that they’re often featured on postcards). If you enjoy hiking, bike riding, skiing, snowshoeing, or just taking a romantic stroll through the trees, then you’ll want to add the White Mountains to your bucket list.

Where do I begin? See, my partner has always been an avid hiker. I mean, I enjoy a good walk as much as the next guy, especially when there are beautiful views to enjoy, but he takes it to the extreme. He owns four different pairs of hiking boots, for crying out loud. So when he said he wanted to explore some of the trails, I had a moment of terror, imagining myself struggling – bruised and bloody – hand-over hand up barren rocky precipices.

Boy was I ever wrong. I’m sure that there are some difficult trails in the area, but for the sake of my poor feet, we were able to find a few that were not only breathtakingly beautiful, but also easy enough that I didn’t have to catch a ride home on a medevac chopper. My personal favorite was Diana’s Bath, a series of waterfalls and pools that are so pristine and picturesque, I thought I was looking at painting. And thank heavens for those pools, because easy trail notwithstanding, taking any sort of hike under the burning gaze of August sunlight can really heat you up. A quick dip in the water was just what the doctor ordered.

North Conway itself was a wonderful little village with plenty of shopping and dining possibilities. On our last evening there, we ate a delectable meal in the Conway Scenic Railroad restaurant (why is it that food tastes better from inside of a moving train?), and then caught a show at the fantastic M&D Productions community theater. The play we saw was delightful comedy about a couple who adopts a stray dog (which is hilariously played by a human actor). By the end of the night, I didn’t even want to head back to the hotel, because that would mean that our vacation was over.

But our hotel was great. It was a turn-of-the-century Victorian style mansion that had great food and wine with a bartender so skilled that I’m sure he must have a PhD in mixology. I can’t even remember the names of some of the more complex cocktails he whipped up, but I’m sure I’ll never forget the taste.

But, of course, all good things come to an end. At least we know where we’ll be heading next summer. North Conway may not be at the top of everyone’s must-visit bucket list, but it definitely should be. So pull yourself out of the dinner-movie-home rut, and take a trip to New Hampshire. Whether you hike, shop, eat, or just hang out in the hotel, you’ll enjoy your time in the White Mountains.
