Apple Adventures in New Hampshire

While New Hampshire is well known for its foliage, we also have bragging rights when considering Fall activities. With the turn of the season comes apple picking, pumpkin patches, hot apple cider, and lots of fall celebrations like the Warner Fall Festival, the Fall Highland Games in Lincoln, and our famous Pumpkin Festival in Laconia.

At the Inn at Pleasant Lake, we specialize in unique and unforgettable experiences. Given our roots in the community, it’s only natural we would apply our craft to create a fun apple picking adventure by teaming up with Gould Hill Farm! Nothing beats a visit to an apple farm for fall fun for the whole family!  Whether you wish to venture out and pick your own in the orchard, peruse through the country store with fresh baked goods, locally made jewelry, toys and fresh produce ready for your selection, or try out the Contoocook Cider Company cider tasting room, your adventure awaits!  At the Inn, we combine the flavors of fall with a top rated culinary experience to produce the complete experience from the farm to your table.  Come feel the warm hospitality of the Inn at Pleasant Lake and enjoy the adventures at Gould Hill Farm. Check out this unique New Hampshire Fall special on our website.  Here is a suggested itinerary for perfect apple adventures in New Hampshire:
