A hillside town in New Hampshire's Grafton County, Bethlehem combines small town flavor with a bountiful selection of recreation options. Its quaint village stores, dining spots, and cultural attractions provide a unique backdrop for time spent with family and friends, while the White Mountains to the east present the perfect base for everything from summer hikes to winter sports. Whether you plan to relax or dive headfirst into the area's array of outdoor activities, Bethlehem vacation rentals are an ideal launch pad for your stay. You'll find that many rentals offer views of the majestic Mount Washington.

Discover natural delights near Bethlehem

With a grand natural landscape on Bethlehem's doorstep, Mother Nature takes center stage. The White Mountains serve up 100s of miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horse riding. At Franconia Notch State Park, you can take a 2-mile nature walk through the caves, pools, and waterfalls of Flume Gorge, or skip straight to the views by grabbing a ticket for the Aerial Tramway, an 80-passenger cable car that whisks riders to the Cannon Mountain summit in under 10 minutes. A Discovery Ticket, available from May through October, covers admission to both Flume Gorge and the Aerial Tramway.

Bethlehem is a 4-season getaway

A popular vacation spot through all 4 seasons, there's never a bad time to enjoy a little downtime in a Bethlehem vacation rental. Over the summer, when temperatures regularly top 70, you can expect rental rates to be a little higher, but you'll be rewarded by seemingly endless sunny days, perfect for exploring the sumptuous surrounding landscape. The winter months are also popular, thanks to the abundance of winter activities on offer in the snow-covered mountains. Spring and fall are often found to offer a tempting combination of still-comfortable temperatures and great deals on a variety of Bethlehem rentals.
