North Conway Vacations at The Buttonwood Inn

A NH Select Registry B&B Inn once called The Hide-Away Lodge

The ski trains once deposited visitors in downtown North Conway and the innkeepers would arrange for transportation, often horse-drawn wagons, to bring guests to their country accommodations. Well, the ski trains may be gone but thankfully many of the original ski lodges and country inns live on. Such is the case at the Buttonwood Inn. In decades past, the Buttonwood Inn was known as The Hide-Away Lodge - a large New England home that welcomed White Mountain visitors, many of which came to ski nearby Mt. Cranmore.

Today, the lodge is known as the Buttonwood Inn and is now owned and operated by Bill and Paula Petrone. The innkeepers have a genuine love for this region of New Hampshire and an appreciation for this historic property. Recent additions and renovations include; free wireless internet for guests, updated common areas, a new outdoor heated hot tub and a large, in-ground, heated swimming pool.

The Buttonwood Inn is popular year 'round. In winter, downhill and cross-country skiing is the primary draw, though some vacationers prefer to relax and enjoy the romantic surroundings. Summer in the White Mountains brings sightseers, shoppers, and hikers. The inn is situated at the base of Mount Surprise in North Conway. A hiking trail extends from the backyard of the inn all the way to the peak of the mountain.
Destination Meetings
One of the services now available at the inn is to have your group, company, or organization meeting here. Innkeeper, Bill Petrone will handle all the details for you and be sure you have everything you need for a most unique and productive meeting or conference.
A NH Select Registry Inn

After checking in at the Buttonwood Inn, you are informed about the inn's affiliation with Select Registry. Select Registry (AKA Distiguished Inns of North America) is a non-profit association of more than 400 lodging properties (mostly inns, B&Bs, and small hotels) . Select Registry was founded in 1972 and members are required to pay annual dues, as well as pass quality assurance inspections.

Mt. Washington Valley Vacations

The Buttonwood Inn is just minutes from the center of North Conway and central to most of the area's popular attractions. One of the most popular NH vacation destinations is the magnificent Mt. Washington Valley. The region features unique attractions found no where else in the world. Natural geological formations like Diana's Bath, and summer attractions like the Mt. Washington Cog Railway, Storyland, and The Mt. Washington Auto Road are just a few of the regions gems.

Guests at The Buttonwood and where they Hail from...

The Buttonwood Has been fortunate to have many wonderful guests visit us from around the world and from nearby towns. One thing they all seem to have in common is a love of adventure, seeing new places, and meeting new people.

This past weekend for example two of our guests where from Grange-over-Sands which is a town by the sea or depending on the state of the extensive tide, sands, in Cumbria, England. They live south of Lake Windermere which is the largest natural lake in England. It has been one of the country’s most popular places for holidays and summer homes since 1847, when the Kendal and Windermere Railway built a branch line to it. The word "Windermere" translates as "Vinandr's lake", from the Old Norse name Vinandr and Old English mere, meaning lake.

Another couple was from Victoriaville Quebec Canada a town not far from Montreal. This adventurous pair trravelled via motorcycle to the Buttonwood and also to the top of Mount Washington.

We rarely get motorcyclists here but this happened to be a weekend when another coupl on Motorcycle arrived. They were from Pineville, a city in Rapides Parish, Louisiana. It is adjacent to the city of Alexandria. They also made the trek up Mt. Washington. The town of Pineville contains the Louisiana Maneuvers Museum which provides insight into the huge maneuvers that prepared the United States for World War II and promoted the career of General Dwight D. Eisenhower because of his organizational skills.

Two of our guests from Alexandria Virginia left this morning for Bar Harbor Maine. The town of Alexandria is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 128,283. Located along the Western bank of the Potomac River, Alexandria is approximately 6 miles (9.6 kilometers) south of downtown Washington, D.C. Like the rest of Northern Virginia, as well as central Maryland, modern Alexandria has been shaped by its proximity to the nation's capital.

Why not come up to visit and add to the geographical diversity that makes life at the Buttonwood so interesting?
