Choices abound as Adair is conveniently located near the 750,000 acre White Mountain National Forest and numerous attractions both natural and man-made.
Wildlife Watching: Keeping a watchful eye on the grounds that surround Adair can be rewarding. The Adair Green Program includes working with a forester to optimize Adair's land to attract butterflies, songbirds, and small animals. On occasion, our guests have even spotted a black bear and a moose.
For our guests who simply want to relax and enjoy all that Adair has to offer, a grand old Oliver Briggs Boston pool table waits patiently for a game in the Granite Tap Room in addition to a warm fireplace and small bar reminiscent of a 20's speakeasy. Overstuffed club chairs and subdued lighting provide a relaxing peaceful atmosphere.
We have numerous books on hikes, waterfalls, lakes, and tours at the inn for our guests' use. Also, we have a notebook for your review with our guests' firsthand accounts of their hikes should you wish a more personal write up. Other books of local interest are also available to read at the inn.
