Newfound Lake - Breathtaking and Pristine

Newfound Lake, one of the clearest, cleanest lakes in the United States, extends seven miles South from Hebron’s shores. This spring- and river-fed gem includes twenty-two miles of shoreline, created with the passing of glacier ice millions of years ago. Its sandy beaches and natural, unspoiled watershed have attracted visitors for over a hundred and fifty years, when travelers used to arrive by stagecoach from Concord.



Swim, Boat, Hike, Fish, Kayak, Ski, or Just Kick Back!

Outdoor activities abound: lake and river boating, swimming, and fishing; snowmobiling, snowshoeing, downhill and cross-country skiing and snowboarding; hiking; and all manner of sightseeing, including one of the world’s most spectacular fall foliage displays.


Launch your kayak or canoe a half-mile from the farm for a relaxing ride up or down the Cockermouth River. View beavers hard at work, otters at play, and blue herons fishing.


For those who like to motor, West Shore Marine, situated at the foot of the lake, offers boat rentals and access to the lake. Wellington State Park, four miles down the western shore of the lake, offers free boat launch facilities.

Nearby natural attractions include Audubon's Paradise Point, Hebron Marsh, and Bear Mountain wildlife sanctuaries; Wellington State Park for boating, hiking, and swimming; Cardigan Mountain State Park with its Appalachian Mountain Club lodge and camping facilities; and Sculptured Rocks, a beautiful gorge on the Cockermouth River and ideal rock jumping and swimming hole.

New Hampshire has over 90 golf courses with 21 in the Lakes Region. The courses nearby include Owl's Nest Golf Club, Ragged Mountain Resort and White Mountain Country Club.

The Newfound Lake area is home to the New Hampshire Marathon.



Explore the Rugged Beauty of the White Mountains

A scenic forty-minute drive North takes you to Franconia Notch and the heart of the White Mountains, known around these parts as "the Whites." The nearly 800,000-acre White Mountain National Forest offers a huge array of recreation options: Hike the Whites, try out some of the Appalachian Mountain Club's great programs, explore Mount Washington--at 6,288 feet, the highest peak in the northeastern United States and home to the renowned Mount Washington Observatory--on foot, by car, or by cog railway.

World-class Alpine and Nordic ski resorts are all within an hour’s drive -- Gunstock, Ragged, Waterville Valley, Loon, Cannon, Bretton Woods and many other New Hampshire and Vermont resorts. Audubon wildlife sanctuaries bordering the farm on three sides provide access to exceptional cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, Nordic skating, hiking and snowmobiling trails—literally right out our back doors.

Whether you come to boat on Newfound’s crystal clear waters, hike the Appalachian Trail, ski northern New England’s finest ski resorts, or hunt for antiques at area shops and auctions, Meadow Wind offers beautiful accommodations, simple country charm, and an unbeatable location right in the middle of it all.
