Peak foliage in the White Mountains is from September to Mid-October. There is no better place to see natures final show before the snows of winter arrive.

The vibrant reds, oranges and yellows change from day to day. If you've never seen the foliage in the North East it's truly a site to see, if you have then we know exactly why you're coming back!

We recommend booking your stay for the fall well in advance, this is a very  popular time of the year and it's hard to find accommodation last minute.
