With Mother’s Day approaching, there’s no better time to plan a visit to the New
Hampshire Seacoast for a weekend to celebrate. If you enjoy hiking, some of the best trails in
the state surround the beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. There are several trails to choose from,
some more challenging than others. If you are ambitious hikers, follow old logging roads for
about three miles to the top of Mt. Major for the best view of the lake. Lockes Hill is a shorter
climb and the loop has different places to stop for sightseeing and a Mother’s Day picnic. For
more stunning views, the Belknap Mountain hike runs about a mile and a half after you drive
to the start of the trail. From the summit, you can see the majestic Mt. Washington in the
distance. The Seacoast of New Hampshire has the best hiking trails for Mother’s Day
After a long day of fun on the trails, you’ll be happy you made plans to stay at the Silver
Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor in Dover. Show Mom how much you care by treating her to a
weekend at this three-story Victorian bed and breakfast steeped in New England tradition.
The Italian carved ceiling and marble baseboards, along with beautiful mahogany paneling
exquisitely reflect the charm and elegance of the Post Civil War era. Each room has its own
personality and style with many amenities available, including an on-site bakery. The elegant
Tea Parlor takes you back to a time of civility when people enjoyed the simpler things in life.
Mother’s Day is special and there is no better way to spend it than hiking at the lake and
staying at The Silver Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor.
