Few inns in New England have the word-of-mouth buzz that Rabbit Hill seems to earn from satisfied guests. Most of the spacious, elegant rooms have fireplaces, two-person whirlpool tubs, and views of the Connecticut River and New Hampshire's White Mountains. The grounds have 10 acres of walking trails. The intimate candlelit dining room serves contemporary new American and regional dishes such as grilled venison loin with cranberry-juniper-orange glaze. Afternoon tea in
the parlor, horseshoes, garden strolls—this inn is great for small pleasures.
