Destination guide

From the top of Mount Washington to the bottom of Pearl Lake

Set against the backdrop of the White Mountain National Forest, Lisbon is a quaint and quiet New England town, steeped in American history that dates back to before the Revolution. This makes a Lisbon vacation rental an ideal option as a homebase for anyone interested in touring the surrounding towns, stopping at local restaurants and shops. Those wishing to get outside will love exploring the natural surroundings, whether its climbing to the summit of Mount Washington or luring in the fish at the bottom of Pearl Lake.

Activities

A tongue twister: love Lisbon's little lavendar lilacs!

Throughout the year, Lisbon hosts a variety of events, including the famous lilac festival each May. For travelers eager to venture out of the downtown area, plenty of outdoor activities await. From hiking through the national forest to taking a night away from your Lisbon vacation rental to sleep under the stars at a nearby campground, it's impossible for nature lovers to be bored. Visitors driving through the area should also be sure to pencil in a few photo stops for the famed covered bridges -- a local attraction special to the region.

Weather

Winters made of ice and falls made of fire

Lisbon celebrates four defined seasons, but not all are created equal. The nearby summit at Mount Washington lays claim as the highest peak in the Northeastern US, and boasts some of the most extreme weather in the world. Off the summit, the weather in Lisbon is a bit more relaxed, but not much more predictable. Winters are long and harsh, with snow sometimes lasting through early May. Summers are short, but can be hot and humid, while fall is one of the most attractive time of year for travelers, thanks to a burst of autumnal colors.

Natural features

We're gonna need someone to tell us how to say "Ammonoosuc"

Nestled between the White Mountain National Forest and the Vermont border, Lisbon is split by the winding Ammonoosuc River. Plenty of wildlife can be found in and around the forest, and the fish are plentiful in both Ammonoosuc River and nearby Pearl Lake. Birdwatchers will spot a variety of local species, including hawks and owls, and anyone with a love for the great outdoors will feel right at home. Pack an extra sweater or 2, to pair perfectly with a cup of coffee on the front porch of your Lisbon vacation rental.
