Fall Travel Guide September 2007

Where to Stay – The 19th-century Claremont Hotel (22 Claremont Rd., 800/244-5036;; doubles from $144, including breakfast), recently redone, is a refreshing change from the homely, doily-clad ins typical of the area.  The wraparound wooden porch and 11 of its 24 rooms have views of glistening Somes Sound – North America’s only fjord.
Insider Tip:  Avid cyclis, and bike shop owner Steve Boucher suggest you try his favorite ride, “the 12-mile Around the Mountain Trail, which runs from Brown Mountain past Eagle Lake to Jordan Pond House restaurant {207/276-3316; snack for two $20}, where you can break for warm popovers and chai.”
