LUXURY TRAVEL MAGAZINE — Overlooking the picture-postcard village of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee is the Pickering House Inn, which, upon its Aug. 1 grand opening, will be the first luxury inn of its kind in the state’s Lakes Region. The 10-room retreat will be a New England hot spot for discerning travelers seeking exceptional accommodations and services within two hours from Boston.
The historic building, built in 1813 and for many decades the residence of prominent businessman Daniel Pickering, was close to being torn down when in 2016 Wolfeboro residents Peter and Patty Cooke purchased the property. The couple – along with a team of local companies and avid supporters – brought the stunning Greek Revival structure back to life. The new Pickering House will provide up to 20 guests with whimsical, laid-back luxury and an ambiance that lends the feel of a being in a friend’s lavish country home.
