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 Pickering’s Kitchen, a gathering kitchen where delicious breakfasts are served each morning to inn guests. Pickering’s 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 Inn offers 10 spacious guest rooms, each with its own unique furnishings and architectural features. Every one of the guest room baths is also different, prompting some of our repeat guests to try a different room every time they come! All rooms offer wonderful mattresses, luxury linens, WiFi, state-of-the-art televisions, individually controlled heat and A/C and much more.
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.
