Yankee Trail Motel & Breakfast Restaurant 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.

Our Breakfast Restaurant was completely remodeled and reopened in Spring 2021. We renamed the restaurant KC's Kitchen & Catering in September 2021, when local Chef/General Manager, Rachel Robie, joined our team. The restaurant name was derived from the owners' names, Kevin & Charlene. KC's offers a full breakfast menu, though we also offer catering for any occasion (up to ~100 people). Outdoor seating is available starting in the Spring season! Planning an outdoor day trip? We'll be offering Grab N Go lunches to take on your adventure. Inquire within! KC's Kitchen & Catering is open to the public year round 7:00 a.m. - Noon every Thursday - Sunday.

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.

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.

Meet Rachel Robie, our local Chef / General Manager. Rachel is an alumni of the Plymouth Regional High School's Culinary Arts Program, who has since become an acclaimed chef throughout central New Hampshire. As a practicing catering chef in Concord, NH, Rachel was awarded the City's prestigious CAPPIE Award for Best Lunch and Catering during 6 of her 8 years in Concord. We are fortunate to have her join our team to bring outstanding home cooked meals - made with local ingredients - from our kitchen to your table.

In February 2020, we welcomed Rick and Lise Miller from Salem, NH, to our team. Rick and Lise graciously pulled themselves from the depths of retirement to work their magic in our kitchen to help get us started - and a great start it was! While Rick and Lise will return to the joys of retirement, they plan to stay on board as part of our family to assist in any restaurant back-up activities or property enhancement projects. We are forever indebted, and they will forever be a part of the Yankee Trail family!
