"A cozy road stop turned riverside inn, the Chieftain Motor Inn retains elements of both.
Easy to find traveling north from Hanover, the Chieftain's charms open to the west with
views of the Connecticut River and Vermont hillsides. Offering a sizeable river landing
below, and four kinds of river craft at your feet, the warmer months promise all kinds
of water-born activities. While visiting in the cooler months, with the red squirrels
and chickadees outside my window, I found it a perfect place to write a chapter or two,
and break out my journal.
One serene morning bathed in November light, I entered the river by canoe. Everything
fell into place, and I was blessed with a mother lode of images. Four keepers in a row
for my study of bare trees in the water and the surprising properties of incident light!
As an extra bonus to this nature loving photographer, the price of the canoe was included
in the room rate."

On-Site Activities ::
If you love nature then the Chieftain Inn is where you want to be. We are surrounded by
nature. Your adventures are endless with water on one side of us, and a very complex trail
system on the other side. Explore both and you will be surprised by what you see, maybe a
large snapping turtle or a patch of lady slippers. We are only 2.1 miles from the Appalachian
Trail which runs through the town of Hanover N.H.
