You've made an excellent choice if you plan to visit New Hampshire during fall foliage season. From the lakes to the mountains, New Hampshire offers breathtaking scenes that are at their finest as the leaves turn. Looking for an autumn getaway package? Want to book lodgings near the best leaf peeping spots in NH? Here are some New Hampshire fall foliage lodging ideas:

The Wentworth
This cozy, romantic and historic "baby grand" hotel with luxurious accommodations is located in Jackson, close to New Hampshire's Kancamagus Highway: arguably New England's most scenic fall foliage drive. Be sure to ask for one of the rooms featuring a gas fireplace and a private indoor whirlpool tub or private balcony hot tub for two.

Holiday Inn Salem (Book Direct)
Traveling with kids or looking to leaf peep on the cheap? The Holiday Inn in Salem, New Hampshire, offers affordable room rates in the fall, and kids stay and eat free. The hotel offers an indoor pool and wireless Internet access, and although it's not in a scenic location, it's centrally located within an easy drive of family-friendly fall attractions in New Hampshire and Massachusetts such as America's Stonehenge, the Mega Maze at Davis' Farmland, Walden Pond and Massachusetts' scenic Route 2, the Mohawk Trail.

Mills Falls at the Lake
This collection of four inns, plus two lodges and a Lakeshore Cottage, is situated on New Hampshire's largest lake: Lake Winnipesaukee. Mill Falls offers enviable autumn views and a convenient, central location from which to explore the Lakes Region's many scenic attractions. It's a good choice, too, if you're attending the New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival, now held in Laconia. Don't miss the chance to embark on a scenic foliage cruise aboard the M/S Mount Washington.

1785 Inn & Restaurant
Recognized repeatedly for having one of the best views from an inn in all the world, this classic lodging property overlooks the incomparably picturesque White Mountains, yet it's conveniently located in the heart of North Conway. If you're looking to leaf peep on the cheap, consider one of the inn's rooms with a shared bathroom. Rooms with private bathrooms are available, as well.

Snowvillage Inn
Don't let the name fool you! The Snowvillage Inn isn't just a winter destination. Leaf peepers love the scenic hiking that awaits right outside the inn's doors, and it's an ideal home base for exploring the White Mountains in the fall. Customize your trip by choosing from nine different fall packages.

The Manor on Golden Pond
This upscale Holderness, New Hampshire, inn with its own on-site spa is wonderfully situated overlooking Squam Lake, the filming location for the 1981 movie, On Golden Pond.

White Mountain Hotel and Resort
This scenic lodging property in North Conway, New Hampshire, has the charm of a small inn with all of the amenities of a large hotel, including a year-round outdoor pool that is kept at an inviting 92 degrees. I'll bet you didn't imagine you could leaf peep from a swimming pool!
