Explore the Northeast Kingdom ~ In the tiny village of Lower Waterford, the Rabbit Hill Inn sits on 15 acres of gardens and wooded trails. A stroll past the white steeple church takes you to the Connecticut River and a glance south captures the majestic views of the White Mountains.  Yet the inn is only minutes from St. Johnsbury, Vermont and Littleton, NH. Two charming New England towns offering fun shopping, antiquing, art galleries and museums. Wander a bit further to visit Franconia Notch State Park, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory, Cabot Cheese Creamery, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, and maple syrup farms.  We are neighbors to some of the best Vermont craft breweries and distillers. Check out Hill Farmstead Brewery (rated #1 craft brewery in the world).     

When the snow falls, ski the mountains of Burke, Cannon, Bretton Woods, or Loon. Go snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing. Take a romantic private horse-drawn sleigh ride. Warmer weather invites you to enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, ziplining, swimming, ATV riding, and golf. The adventure list goes on and on. Of course, save time for an in-room massage - the perfect way to relax after any activity!
