Visiting southern New Hampshire? Or looking for a weekend getaway? Although the area has several very comfortable hotels, why not consider staying at one of the unique bed and breakfasts in the region? This is the first in a series of articles to introduce you to some local lodging houses that will make your house hunting a truly memorable experience. The B&B’s that will be included are just a few minutes from the major cities in the area, but far away in terms of ambiance and atmosphere. Consider taking some time out from your New Hampshire experience to stay at one of these hostelries for a memorable time.
Zahn’s Alpine Guest House was conceived twenty years ago by Bud and Anne Zahn, who used to make several buying trips to Austria, Bavaria, and the Alpine region of Italy for their import business. They enjoyed staying in small guest houses on their trips and wanted to reproduce the experience here in New England. The result is a piece of the Tirol in Mont Vernon, New Hampshire. The eight room B&B is filled with authentic Alpine furnishings, from the carpets that cover the floors to the beds and mattresses, perfect for a night’s sleep, to the artwork that adorns the walls. The focal point of the Guest House is the Stube, the common room, which houses an authentic Kachelofen, a ceramic stove that provides heat for much of Zahn’s.
Each room has its own private bath, and is equipped with Wifi, TV, and telephones. Children are encouraged; no pets. Check in and checkout times are negotiable. A discounted rate for Hampshire Hills, the local sports/fitness facility, is available to guests. Zahn’s is located at 97 S. Main St., Mont Vernon, NH 03057; phone: 603-673-2334 or toll free 888- 745-0051. For rates, directions, and more information, visit Zahn’s website.
