Guided Tour

Boldt Castle

Boldt Castle was designed as their summer dream home for hotel magnate George C. Boldt as a tribute to his beloved wife Louise.

Coordinates are for the castle itself, but it is on an island so you’ll need to grab a boat ride from one of the local tour operators (click the external site link).

Castle in the Clouds

When we come here with the kids we spend most of the day on the property. The house itself has breathtaking views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the hills and mountains beyond. There are miles of hiking trails on the site as well. We usually eat a light lunch in the old horse barn, were the tables are set up in the stalls. You can also take a tour of Castle Springs bottling plant and see the actual spring that produces the water for bottling.

Conway Scenic Railroad

Enjoy some of the finest natural scenery in the East as you travel through spectacular Crawford Notch – past sheer bluffs, steep ravines, cascading brooks and streams, panoramic mountain vistas, and across the famed Frankenstein Trestle and Willey Brook Bridge – enroute to Crawford Depot or Fabyan Station. Live commentary covers history and folklore of the railroad and area, as well as points of interest

Longfellow’s Wayside Inn

Great look into the way things used to be. There are a few attractions scattered around the property that are worth seeing, including Martha’s Chapel, the old Schoolhouse, and the nearby picturesque Grist Mill, which iis just down the street and has its own parking area.

Morgan Horse Farm

Learn the history of the Morgan horse and take a guided stable tour. At this National Historic Site, the “Home of the Morgan,” you can tour the breeding farm of this world famous horse. One hour or a little more for this stop.

Pemi Valley Excursions Moose Tour

Join in the fun as we take a 2 1/2 to 3 hour journey through the majestic White Mountains in our air conditioned bus in search of the gentle giant of the North Country. Our nightly excursions feature a guided tour of the local area, a video about Moose, and interesting historical sites along the way.

Virginia Military Institute Museum

Many items in the collection have been presented over the past 140 years by the individuals who used them. Cadet guided tours are offered daily (dependent on cadet availability) at 12:00 noon departing from the lobby
