Yankee Trail Motel & Breakfast in Holderness, New Hampshire

Our Motel

Yankee Trail is located near the famous Squam Lake, or 'On Golden Pond' as it was known in the famous 1981 movie with Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn, in Holderness, New Hampshire. Our family-owned and operated motel is also close to Lakes Winnipesaukee, Little Squam, Newfound Lake and more. We pride ourselves in making your trip to the Lakes and Mountains Region an affordable and unforgettable experience. Join us in the in-season for lake fun, concerts, or mountain hiking; or in the off-season for mountain snow, frozen lake fun, snowmobiling or comedy! There's so much offered here in the center of it all!

Our ten clean, over-sized motel rooms feature great family accommodations with many amenities, including blow dryer, microwave, mini-fridge, and personal Kuerig coffee machine with complimentary coffee. No more carpet!! New Heat and AC, new bathroom installations, new floors, doors, windows, and, well, everything. This demonstrates a sample of one of our King rooms. Rooms with two full-size beds are also available.

The former Breakfast Restaurant was completely remodeled in Spring 2021. In August 2022, our business model was modified to lower expenses, while providing improved alignment to the manageable retirement life we envisioned. With breakfast now included in our room rates, our restaurant is dedicated to serving our motel guests only. Our guests get to experience that Bed & Breakfast vibe with the luxury of enjoying their own private space, separate from the owners. The restaurant now serves more as our kitchen, dining and living space where we invite our guests to join us for breakfast appetizers while we make your breakfast to order. We have no menu. We primarily cook your basic American breakfast options to order or provide homemade specials. When arranged in advance with your reservation, our dining space is available to group guests as a common area for gathering in hot, cold, or inclement weather. Catered BBQ or alternate Dinner options are available upon request for guests arriving in groups. Guests are also welcome to utilize the outdoor BBQ grill for their own use, should you choose to have dinner at 'home'. Off Season Breakfast Hours (Nov-Apr): 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. In-Season Breakfast Hours (May-Oct): 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Forever Grateful. This is Rick and Lise Miller from Salem, NH. Our dear friends who graciously helped get us started - be it tearing down walls, sewing curtains, painting, prepping the restaurant, baking homemade muffins, painting, serving the omelets and home fries with bacon/sausage, (did I mention painting?), splitting firewood, building campfires, serving crockpot dinners - there was no job too small. Our hearts were broken in Sep 2022 when Rick entered his premature eternal rest. We remain forever grateful to Lise and Rick for their friendship, support, and for the elbow grease and restaurant expertise they gave us to get started. We are honored to consider their family as our extended family.

The Yankee Trail Motel boasts 3 professional regulation horseshoe pits that can also be used for corn hole. The owner, Charlene, is an avid horseshoe pitcher and seeks to plan weekly pick up games, as well as organized tournaments, for locals and travelers. 20% of any tournament fees are slated for quarterly local community donations, while the remainder goes to winner payouts. Want to organize your own group tournament event or fundraiser? Contact Charlene on her personal mobile at 508-717-4777. Join us April 22, 2023 for our Annual Spring Horseshoe Tournament. Locals welcomed and encouraged!

This is Bailey, our grand puppy Boarder Collie with his dad, Ryan. Pets are welcome at the Yankee Trail. We allow up to 2 pets per room for a one-time $25 fee per pet. As we are on a busy road, we do require pets to be leashed outdoors. Pets may not be left unattended for longer than 90 minutes to reduce stress on them and neighboring guests. There are pet services available in the area. Non-compliance to our pet policies or damage caused by pets could incur fines of up to $100 and/or unfortunate eviction.

***NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS*** - Reservations made through HotelValue.com cannot be accepted. This is a known SCAM website from which we have had customers arrive at our establishment only to find they did NOT have a confirmed booking even though they received a confirmation number from the bogus booking engine. Buyers beware!
