The White Mountains in New Hampshire draw guests year-round, whether it’s for a winter ski trip, lake swimming in the summer, or hiking in the shoulder seasons. The nearby town of Sugar Hill offers the perfect pairing of small-town charm to experience these beautiful surroundings to their fullest.
Our Sugar Hill vacation rentals are in northern New Hampshire, near the Vermont border. The town overlooks the White Mountain National Forest, with its incredible mountain ranges, and is near several lakes and rivers.
Guests flock to this area for the unparalleled east-coast skiing. Cannon Mountain Ski Area is less than 10 miles from our Sugar Hill cabin rentals, perfect for a fun-filled day on the slopes. With a summit elevation of 4,080 feet, it’s the highest ski area in all of New Hampshire, and even its vertical drop is the longest in the state, clocking in at 2,180 feet. With 25 miles of trails ranging from beginner to expert, there’s plenty of room to roam for everyone.
In the warmer months, these incredible ranges are a mecca for hikers in search of jaw-dropping vistas. The White Mountain National Forest spans 800,000 acres and includes over 150 miles of trails and 48 peaks. In spring, the lupine fields are in bloom, dappling the meadows with colorful violet, while an autumnal hike means vibrant crimson and gold leaves. If it’s late enough in the season, you may be lucky enough to explore below the snow-dusted peaks, before the weather turns cold.
Echo Lake State Park is about 50 miles from our Sugar Hill vacation rentals, where you can swim in the warm waters and admire the rocks towering around you, or hike up them for lake views. Swing by the farmers’ market for ingredients to a picnic lunch, which you can enjoy at one of the picnic tables along the water’s edge. It’s a great place to spend an easy afternoon strolling the shores or skipping stones over the still waters.
While the outdoors are certainly a big pull for guests of our Sugar Hill vacation rentals, there’s something to be said about this charming town. Stop at Polly’s Pancake Parlor for a famous stack of their pancakes before your day of exploration. Multiple local culture museums—like the New England Ski Museum—as well as historic theatres, art galleries, antique stores, shops, and eateries are all at your fingertips.
Whether you’re coming for the outdoors or just to get a little peace and quiet, Sugar Hill affords the perfect rural getaway. Come and experience all that this charming town has to offer. Take a look through our Sugar Hill cabin rentals.
