Best New Old Inn:
Aylmer and Cindy Given purchased this property in 2008 and immediately upgraded the interior of the circa-1893 main building to provide some unexpected urban flair at this classic New England inn. The main floor has been redesigned with a stately lobby, a sleek bar, and a full restaurant (Aylmer’s Grille). Rates: from $139, including full breakfast, or $129 without. 247 Woodbound Road. 800-688-7770, 603-532-8341; woodbound.com

Best Tchotchke Getaway:
If you like being in the middle of it all, then this is the place for you. Bright pastel buildings–efficiency motel units, rental cottages, a restaurant, and a gift shop–belie the down-home interiors and sensibility that keep this waterside getaway humming. Even better: two jam-packed gift shops on site where cool T-shirts, magnets, and other collectibles rule the day. Rates: from $79. 1086 Weirs Blvd. 603-366-4341; naswa.com

Best Down-Home B&B:
Enjoy the homemade breakfasts, proximity to outdoor recreation hot spots, and stunning mountain views–but what you’ll remember is the homey atmosphere and warm reception from owners Chet and Sue Thompson, who take the time to get to know each guest. Rates: from $95, including full breakfast. 2165 Easton Road (Route 116). 866-546-7626, 603-823-5686; kinsmanlodge.com

Best In-Town Lodging: Kearsarge Inn, North Conway
This mountain town’s first boutique hotel is cozy and quiet, yet close to the bustle of Main Street, where small shops and restaurants abound. Rates: from $59. 42 Seavey St. 800-637-0087, 603-356-8700; kearsargeinn.com

Best Away-From-It-All Lodging:
Situated halfway between I-93 and I-89, the village of East Andover is blessedly forgotten–and it’s here that you’ll find this historic farmhouse on a country lane. Walking and biking trails and a chance to unwind. Rates: from $160, including full breakfast. 32 Maple St. 603-735-6426; highlandlakeinn.com
