NORTHSHORE -- When local residents Patty and Peter Cooke saved the Pickering House in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, from being torn down and replaced by a big-box shop, the couple could not have imagined its transformation—from a dilapidated 1813 building into a luxury inn, winning Travel & Leisure’s Number 1 Resort in New England for its ambiance, décor, and hospitality.

TRAVEL + LEISURE -- Travel writer Rachel Chang highlights Pickering's recent accolades from Travel + Leisure where Pickering was named the #1 Resort Hotel in the US, #1 in New England, and #4 in the World. She writes "what truly earns Pickering House Inn its raves is the thought and care that the Cookes have put into the smallest details, accumulated from their own wish list during their travels. The result is the idyllic balance between all modern amenities of a luxury resort (think: heated tiled bathroom floors and electronic showers controls) and a rustic bed-and-breakfast vibe (a gourmet breakfast in the Gathering Room is included with every stay)." We are honored to have received this recognition!
