Ride Into Fall

photo (11)

Enjoy the beauty of New Hampshire from a top a horse! Fall foliage is the perfect time of year to go horseback riding.

Whisper Wind Stable offers trail rides that you leave directly from the Inn.

The New Hampshire rail trail system offers a leisurely, scenic horse ride. A guided ride that takes approximately one and one half hours is offered for beginner to intermediate riders. No previous experience is necessary.

Allison Barry, your “guide” is a nationally certified riding instructor who will make your riding experience at the Inn unforgettable.

The fee for Allison to come to the inn with a maximum at a time of 4 horses (this includes her horse, therefore 3 horses for 3 riders) is $50 per hour per horse for Trail Riding from the Highland Lake Inn. As standard route Allison uses from the Inn a route on the Rail Trail, then through deep woods to a dirt road returning through the inn, about 1.5 hrs. Upon making reservation this can be extended to a longer ride.

Horses are well trained. Riding helmets are available for your use, or bring your own if you have one. Long pants are necessary and boots are recommended, as well as insect repellent.

For more information or to book your trail ride call (603)934-2139 or e-mail   Allison@Whisperwindstable.com

Level III Saddle Seat & Level II Hunt Seat, Western are available.





Take a little half hour drive down south of the Highland Lake Inn, (there are 2 historic covered bridges en route) to the Henniker Brewing Company on a hot summers day. Bring some back for a picnic on the beach of the Highland Lake, or sit out in back of the inn in our Adirondack chairs and watch the sun go down.

They brew beer with real New Hampshire spirit of independence, home-town pride, and hard work. Using only the finest ingredients, they craft all of their beers by hand and stake their reputation on every glass it goes into.

I have stayed at the Highland Lake Inn in January for the first time and enjoyed my time there a lot. It is a charming bed and breakfast managed by the innkeeper Pecco and his wife Gail who make you feel welcome right away. Only 1.5 hours outside of Boston it is a great place to relax and do some outdoor activities. I will definitely come back as soon as possible!!

“Cozy as home”

5 of 5 starsReviewed June 19, 2014

This was my second stay at Highland Lake Inn. And again it has been wonderful. The host Pecco and on the weekend with the help of his wife Gail prepared a wonderful breakfast according to our wishes. One day we decided for poached eggs. They were the best I ever had. The room was very comfortable. The location is great if you want to get away to nature. The living room and all other rooms were so cozy, you never find anything like that in a hotel.

“Love It”

Over the past 4 years, this great B&B has made all the difference in our trips to Andover, NH. After our first visit, we couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else when we were in the area. Breakfast is great; beds are superb; Pecco and Gail are a delight to be with. Staying at The Highland Lake Inn is like being at home. Couldn’t ask for more.
