Destination guide

A friendly family town in New Hampshire

If you’re doing time with the family during spring or summer, you need a spot that’s friendly for all. Welcome to your Lebanon vacation rental! Whether you’re in town during a chilly winter or a sinfully hot summer, you won’t leave disappointed. The surroundings are, in a word, stunning, and it’s the reason most people return for another visit. The overall vibe is a little bit sleepy, a little bit quaint, and 100% ideal for families seeking a true respite from the chaos of everyday life.

Things to do

The gorgeous lands of Lebanon

If you’ve got a thing for the natural beauty of the place, head straight for the Montshire Museum of Science and enjoy a self-guided tour of scientific exhibits galore—and 110 acres of gorgeous surrounding lands. The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center is a major draw, albeit a bit of a drive, an hour west of Lebanon. Still, it’s worth the visit if you’re captivated by live animals and need to infuse your trip with some zoo action. If you prefer a more peaceful experience, the AVA Gallery and Art Center is right in town and offers a revolving selection of stunning exhibits.

Activities

Camping, live music, and farmer’s markets

Love the outdoors? You’re in the right place if you’ve booked a Lebanon vacation rental! Set up camp for a night on the Mascoma Lake Campgrounds and do some bird watching while you’re at it. Downtown Lebanon features a lively pub or two, where you can enjoy some live music with your ale of choice. Shopping is also a popular activity thanks to the quirky boutiques and farmers’ markets that bustle with activity throughout the week. Why not make the most of your getaway and indulge in a spa treatment or yoga class while you’re there?

Weather

Summering or shivering in Lebanon

You get gorgeous weather when you book a Lebanon vacation rental. Summering in the city? Expect a warm few months, although be at peace knowing the temperature tends to stick more in the 80-degree vicinity. If you prefer a brisker chill, consider penciling Lebanon into your winter calendar instead. At its coldest, it may drop down to a shivery 10 degrees in January. It also tends to snow here at this time of year, although you’re far more likely to encounter a rainy day in Lebanon as the traditional “wet” season runs from May to October. Plan accordingly.

Natural features

Lebanon in her natural glory

They must have been talking about Lebanon when they first coined the word “beautiful”—there’s simply no other explanation for the area’s overwhelming sense of serenity and quiet elegance. Mountains cast gentle shadows over the country fields, while the western edge of the city is bordered by the Connecticut River. On the other side of town is the Mascoma River. Thinking of scaling the peaks? Know the names first: Moose Mountain, which offers 2 summits, and Shaker Mountain, which sits 1657 feet above sea level.
