We’ve previously talked about all of the fun things you can do in the White Mountains, including skiing, snowshoeing, zip lining, hiking or experiencing a relaxing getaway to a B&B. We’ve even talked about how beautiful this area is during the seasonal changes—the vibrant colors of the changing leaves in the fall and the exuberant countryside with its array of springtime flowers.

What we haven’t really gone into is some of the specific places to go to see these wonderful sights. Well, today we’re going to fix that! Today we would like to take you on a journey of the imagination to four areas in North Conway where nature’s beauty is most abundant.

Spring cleaning involves so much more than cleaning out the garage, cleaning windows and pulling weeds. This is the perfect season for overall rejuvenation. You can feel it in the air.

Many people use springtime as a time to do a healthful cleanse or detox. While this is a great idea, everyday life can make it difficult. Stress bombards us and we immediately want junk food. We experience some justified road rage and our day is ruined. The idea of rejuvenation has gone out the window and all we want to do is sit in front of the TV and vegetate.

But there is a solution! If you want to take advantage of spring and experience the transformation the season offers, we suggest a relaxing get-away in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Its official, folks! Spring is finally here (no, really!), and you know what that means—love is in the air. Now is the perfect time to get away from the doldrums of everyday life and enjoy some romance and relaxation. Whether you’ve been with your beloved for a few weeks or many decades, a trip to the romantic White Mountains of New Hampshire is the perfect romantic getaway.

You love the outdoors and you're ready for adventure no matter what the season. Now that the warmer weather is here, it's time to shift gears from snowshoeing and downhill skiing to mountain climbing, hiking, horseback riding, and all of the other outdoor adventures that spring and summer have to offer. You can find these activities and more when you visit North Conway, New Hampshire and stay at the Bernerhof Inn.

“Where does the time go?” This is something all of us have uttered at some point. Time just seems to fly and before you know it a year has passed. We’re pretty convinced the major reason for this is because of fast-paced lifestyles. Even kids are super busy. And the poor parents, too! Not only do they have to take care of all of their child’s engagements, they work full time, clean the house, and go to PTA meetings.

In this day and age it’s really easy to feel frazzled, which is why getting away from it all is a great idea. But a lot of people have a hard time justifying a getaway. That’s why we wanted to give you some valid reasons why you should get out of town.

Artists search for inspiration. Some find it in music, a child’s laughter, a good book, or by looking at the work of other artists. If you’re an artist and you’ve been struggling to find some inspiration lately, we have a suggestion. Why not visit the White Mountains in New Hampshire?

The White Mountains are the perfect place to find inspiration and exercise your artistic expression. We try really hard not to be biased, but it’s difficult because we’re located in such a wonderful area. There truly is something for everyone. It really doesn’t matter what type of artist you are or what you’re looking for. Here are just a few things you can find in New Hampshire’s White Mountains that any artist will appreciate.

Spring is almost upon us and we’re pretty excited! We’re doing our best to be patient and have been “enduring” the crazy winter weather by enjoying fun winter sports—and hot cocoa in front of a cozy fire hasn’t hurt either.

Needless to say, we know how to enjoy the winters around here. But we are so excited for the spring that we just had to tell you about one of the best ways to experience it around here.


Springtime is one of our most beautiful seasons. We have some of the most colorful and fragrant displays of wildflowers this country has to offer. The exquisiteness of the White Mountains makes this the perfect place for a wellness retreat.

Most people take vacations during the winter, partially because of the time off they get for the holidays and because the kids tend to get quite a bit of time off from school between November and March.

A lot of times, though, people choose to go somewhere warm. Why? Well, when you live in snow, drive in snow, and work in snow, the beautiful, white, flaky substance can be a bit overwhelming. But, as we all know - the snow is something that can be enjoyed, too.

And, that’s where an experience at our White Mountains B&B will serve you well.


Staying in a White Mountains B&B will help you get away from it all, relax, and have some fun. The snowy weather is good for skiing, of course, but if skiing isn’t your thing, there’s much more that the White Mountains have to offer you.

The East Coast sure is getting slammed with snow this winter! It’s beautiful, but it’s cold and can be cumbersome. This is why some people choose not to travel during the winter months. Or, if they do travel, it’s to get far away from the snow. Granted, there are those people who adore winter weather. The rain, snow, thunder and lightning, strong winds, whatever winter has in store – they’re ready and they can’t wait!


To those of you who are like that, we welcome you with open arms. We know you’ll enjoy your visit here, whether you’re stuck indoors because of the bad weather, or get to go outdoors and enjoy it. 

To those of you who are apprehensive about traveling to a North Conway B&B during the snowy weather, we want to tell you why winter is one of the best times to visit.

Have you heard the news? The Northeast is expecting to be hit with a “snow hurricane”. We’re not sure about you, but this is somewhat of a new concept for us. We’ve dealt with our share of blizzards in the past…but a “snow hurricane”? That sounds ominous, doesn’t it?

If you have plans to visit a Jackson NH B&B sometime this winter, you will most likely experience a snow day or two, whether they come from a “snow hurricane” or not. For some folks, the idea of a snow day is an excuse for a cozy weekend indoors.

north cownay ski lodgingIt’s February, and it’s cold, snowy, and wet. Some people have a hard time coping during this time of year. They feel shut up and get a horrible case of cabin fever. “There’s nothing to do” is a common complaint. Some try to pass the time with movies or a good book, but after a while even those activities begin to feel stale.


Don’t suffer any longer! Take a long weekendand get away from it all. Where should you go? No, you don’t need to spend a ton of money and take a trip to some tropical island. There’s plenty to do and see right here in NH. In fact, the White Mountains area is one of the most beautiful in the country. Besides the scenery, there is an endless supply of things to do around here. Let’s take a look at just a few.

New buds and brews as well as other Spring changes are showing up around The Bernerhof Inn.

Just as we were about to believe we've entered a year of just 3 seasons, we are blessed with some awesome mild and fragrant air!  Sue and Jim are all over the grounds adding new flowers as well as cleaning up the remnants of last winter's havoc.  YES we did have a front porch under there didn't we?

A few words about the Innkeepers…Steve and Katey have discovered that the very best thing about hospitality is the guests!  They love meeting new and interesting people every week, (and seeing previous guests return), first time guests are just friends that haven’t been met yet!
