All Aboard the Autumn Express

For dinner, enjoy fine cuisine and a leisurely 1-3/4 hour journey through the Mount Washington Valley countryside on one of the “Sunset” departures. The dinner menu includes appetizer, salad, a choice of entree and dessert. Choose from a tempting selection of house specialties prepared by Crawford’s Restaurant.

"We had really been looking forward to our stay here and we weren't disappointed. Everything about the Christmas Farm Inn was so welcoming - the beautiful lounges were very inviting and comfortable. Our room (upstairs in the Salt Box) was so charming and quaint and qwerky and warm. Staff were really lovely. Despite being very busy, it still seemed so peaceful. We could have settled in here for a long time if we'd been able to." — TripAdvisor Review

History of Christmas Farm Inn Name
The Inn is not 'Christmas themed' but rather received its name from the gifting of the property at Christmas time – renamed the ‘Christmas Farm’ in honor of the season and spirit of the gift.
