Rev up your engine and hop on your hog for a weekend at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. These Loudon laps host the longest motorcycle race on the continent – along with annual Nascar events. This speedway isn’t without its other sights, though – the scenic New Hampshire forests and historic towns provide a perfect backdrop for kicking your vacation down into first gear. Kill the ignition, let go of the clutch and unwind at one of these hotels near the New Hampshire Motor Speedway – bookable on Culture Trip.

Follansbee Inn

Bite into a bit of the bayou while you laze about the Follansbee Inn. You may be only an hour from New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but these Louisiana ex-pats serve up a little swampy flair during their home-cooked breakfasts. Baked cheese grits and Eggs Beatrice – along with a steamy cup of White Mountain Coffee – will keep you warm all winter long. But not too long, hopefully – the complimentary snowshoes could use a long walk.

Silver Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor

Afternoon tea at the Silver Fountain Inn is the perfect opportunity to appreciate the architecture of this Dover hotel. As you sip a South African Rooibos or Yerba Mate – steeped to the perfect second, of course – your eyes will walk around the French parquet floors, marble baseboards and Italian carved ceilings, stopping only to linger at the tea table full of seasonal scones and soups. You’ll spend so much time in the lovely tea parlor, you’ll forget just how elegant your enchanting suite is.

Highland Lake Inn

We’re not saying that you won’t love the warm brick fireplace and cozy bay window seat of the Highland Lake Inn’s namesake room, but we do think anyone who loves watching the seasons stretch across the skyline will enjoy the view from the upper floor rooms. Old-growth maple trees manicured lawns and Mt Kearsarge are in full view from the Kensington, the Putney and the Danbury. Pro tip: bring friends and compare the vistas over a breakfast of farm-fresh eggs.

The Centennial Hotel

Perhaps it’s the cutting-edge Tesla parked in front of the 19th-century Victorian mansion that has us awe-struck at the Centennial Hotel. A lovely blend of centuries-old refinement with modern luxury, these Concord accommodations are straight-up cool. The turret rooms are by far the slickest in the mansion – with the private lounge areas built into the space. As if the convergence of past and present wasn’t enough, the Granite Restaurant brings the best wines from across the Atlantic to pair beside regional ingredients.

The Bedford Village Inn

Dress in luxury at the Bedford Village Inn – and we mean that in a literal sense – as the sleek marble bathrooms and elegant four-poster beds in the grand suites will inspire you to strike a pose of your own. The Arnaldo Joseph Boutique has the bold and beautiful styles you need to exude confidence from head to toe. But first, give your skin, muscles and spirit a tailored treatment with a microdermabrasion treatment, a sexy Brazilian ‘vacial’, or a Himalayan salt stone massage at the spa.

Hotel Concord

Is there anywhere better to stay in the capital of New Hampshire than the Capital Suite of Hotel Concord? Floor-to-ceiling windows put the city at your fingertips and even closer during the warmer months when the seasonal terrace is warmed up and ready for you. The Amazon Echo Dot will help you set the mood with smooth jazz while you wait for room service to send up corn pudding and Kobe Beef ‘O Pops’ from the chophouse downstairs.

The Garrison Hotel and Suites

Even though the New Hampshire Motor Speedway is an hour’s drive away, you won’t want to race out of the Garrison Hotel and Suites any time soon. When you settle into an upgraded suite, mix a highball at the wet bar and let out a long sigh in the separate sitting area – well, you’ll hardly want to move a muscle. If your toes must wiggle their way into your shoes, make sure it’s into a pair of slippers to visit the heated pool or fire pit on the patio.

Winnisquam Lake Inn

Low-key, lakeside lounging is what it’s all about at Winnisquam Lake Inn. With their private beach only a few sandal steps away, you’ll need nothing more than the small yet sufficient Micro Room during the summer. When the chill of winter starts to creep in, you can view the lake with a warm cup of tea from the communal deck then head back up to your king room for a snuggle with a good book.
