An easy walk from lively Market Square, the AC Hotel Portsmouth Downtown/Waterfront was ideal for our weekend of exploring New Hampshire’s historic seacoast city.

Atkinson Resort - Warmth and Comfort in NH star
The words “warmth” and “resort” don’t, in my experience, tend to come in the same breath. By their nature, resorts offer a multitude of facilities and activities to a multitude of people, and the warmth of a B&B is just not possible. I learned differently last weekend at the Atkinson Resort

Beach-side Luxuries at Maine’s Inn by the Sea star
Set in its own wild garden, above a long beach on Cape Elizabeth, Inn by the Sea combines very modern comforts -- and a green attitude -- with old-fashioned sun-and-sand-and-spa relaxation.

Camden Harbour Inn - Perfect Spot to be Snowbound star
I had awakened early to that unmistakable deep silence that we northerners instinctively recognize before our eyes are even open. The sound of snow, or rather the stillness of snow.

What a treat it is when a place gets everything right. Dinner on the terrace of Geneva on the Lake lived up to everything we expected from this fabled luxury villa in New York’s Finger Lakes.

Captain Lord Mansion in Kennebunkport Maine star
My travels always have a purpose. I go to New Brunswick to kayak in the Bay of Fundy. I go to the White Mountains to ski. I never go someplace just to BE there. It's harder than you think. But at the Captain Lord Mansion, it becomes an art form.

Christmas Farm Inn - Warm Welcome in New Hampshire star
Without overdoing the Yuletide theme, Christmas Farm Inn keeps the holiday spirit year round, celebrating the simple joys of life each day. Spacious guest rooms and fine country dining welcome guests in all seasons.

Comfort and Luxury at Hilton Boston Logan Airport star
The warm hospitality of the staff, the luxurious rooms and flexibility of services to accommodate travelers on weird schedules were impressive – and certainly not what I expect from an airport hotel.

Dexter’s Inn in Sunapee, New Hampshire star
There is something both comfortable and comforting about staying in a New England country inn “of a certain age”.

Most travelers don’t use the words “luxury” and “family” in the same sentence, but at Purity Spring Resort in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, the two words come together as naturally as cookies and milk.

Emerson Inn - A Weekend by the Sea in Rockport MA star
In an art-filled coastal town north of Boston we found sea views, fine dining and an historic hotel named for a famous former guest.

Kid-friendly Royal Sonesta Hotel, overlooking Boston from across the river in Cambridge, was a perfect base for exploring the city.

Fine Dining at The Old Inn on the Green star
When The Old Inn on the Green, in the Massachusetts Berkshires, promises candlelight dining they mean it. Apart from candles, the only light in the dining room came from the blaze in the large fireplace that nearly filled one wall.

Friday Night at Libby’s Bistro in Gorham NH star
We’d heard from friends that Libby’s Bistro was good, but our Friday night dinner was so I-can’t-believe-I’m-eating-something-this-delicious that we went back on Saturday evening to be sure we hadn’t been eating hallucinatory mushrooms.

History and Fine Dining at the Deerfield Inn star
Set in the middle of New England’s only National Historic Landmark Village, Deerfield Inn was the perfect setting for a weekend getaway

Hotel Indigo - Luxury in Boston's Burbs star
Just off an I-95 exit in the Boston burbs might not be a place you'd look to find a luxury hotel with an outstanding restaurant, but that's where we found both, at the Hotel Indigo in Newton.

Hotel Veritas Perfect for a Weekend in Cambridge star
Boston may get more attention, but for many of us, the real heart of “The Hub” is just across the river in Cambridge’s Harvard Square. And The Hotel Veritas is our new home-away-from-home there.

Intercontinental Boston - Beauty on the Waterfront star
Contemporary architecture in an historic setting, old-fashioned hospitality at a state-of-the-art hotel – Boston’s Intercontinental Hotel is comfortable in both worlds.

Luxury on the Lake – Church Landing in Meredith star
It’s never too early in the season for a getaway to a luxury inn overlooking New Hampshire’s beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee.

Room with a View - New Hampshire’s Snowvillage Inn star
“A Room with a View” was written about a hotel in Florence, overlooking the Arno River as it flows under Ponte Vecchio, the most iconic of all Florentine views. But my favorite room with a view is far from Italy, and the view is a panorama of my own White Mountains, in New Hampshire.

Skiing in New Hampshire’s White Mountains star
In my world there’s no more beautiful view than the snowcapped peaks of New Hampshire’s Presidential Range white against a blue morning sky.
