Pickering House Inn and The Barn at Pickering House opened in July 2018 after a two-year renovation of the historic Pickering homestead. Owners Peter and Patty Cooke wanted to provide a new option in Lakes Region New Hampshire lodging by blending the luxury and personal service of a small boutique hotel with the convenience of a bed and breakfast-style approach. The inn offers first floor common areas, 10 guest rooms with luxury baths, and a Gathering Kitchen where delicious breakfasts are served each morning to inn guests. The Gathering Kitchen is also the place for Spirits & Snacks in the evening, as well as many special events, such as cooking classes and small dinners.
The Barn at Pickering House is a renovated 19th century barn offering a wonderful venue for weddings, celebrations, meetings and retreats and other private events. Pickering House also hosts many of its public events in the Barn.
