The Ashburn House will accept guests throughout the fall and winter mostly by chance.If our availability calendar is full, give us a call to check the accuracy. By mid April we expect to again offer more availability, especially for college graduations and special events. If you have stayed with us previously, and need a room in the area, give us a call to see if we are open.
During the winter guests enjoy hiking , snowshoeing and skiing in the Monadnock Region. Granite Gorge outside Keene offers options for downhill, cross country skiing and snow tubing. Windblown, a fine Nordic area outside New Ipswich, offers miles of fabulous Nordic trails! New ice skating options exist in Keene and in Fitzwilliam when temperatures allow.
For those with adventuresome appetites, our region features a variety of cuisines…from the Inn down the road, open Wed-Sat, to Alan’s Cafe in Fitzwilliam, the new Thai Bamboo Restaurant in Troy, (10 mins),to Emma’s (replacing JPStevens with instant popularity and close to Franklin Pierce College), then Peterborough with a new Mexican Restaurant plus the favorites: Waterhouse and Harlow’s…to say nothing of Keene with numerous choices such as the expanded and ever popular: Stage, Nicola’s Trattoria, Lucas, Fireworks, Papagallos, and more…
Come spend a night or a weekend…We serve eggs from our chickens, our home grown herbs, homemade jellies and maple syrup, and locally picked fruit. We adapt to special diets when known ahead and maintain a sustainable environment with composting,recycling and more. Couples enjoy the privacy, and parents of students at Franklin Pierce, Winchendon School, High Mowing, Well School, Northfield /Mt. Hermon, and Hampshire School enjoy the proximity as well as the charm. Keene State parents appreciate bucolic Fitzwilliam, only a 15-20 minute drive to Keene. Making your stay pleasant is our goal!
