What to do around Getaway Boston

Your Getaway is about finding time to disconnect in order to reconnect—whether with family, friends, or nature. After a restful break at one of our cabins, there’s plenty to do on your way home to explore. From art museums to state parks, each of our Outposts is surrounded by plenty of relaxing and fun activities, whatever may pique your interest.

Here’s our Boston Outpost guide to nearby attractions and things to do along the way:

Exploring Nearby
Spend your day further afield and come back to your cabin to relax after your adventures.

Pawtuckaway State Park
With a lake for swimming, a marsh that’s home to a variety of wildlife, miles upon miles of hiking trails, and even boulders for climbing, you could easily spend the whole day roaming around Pawtuckaway State Park, and it’s only about a 30-minute drive from your cabin.

Lake Winnipesaukee
The largest lake in the state of New Hampshire offers plenty of activities in any season. About an hour away from your tiny home, you can swim, boat and fish when it’s warm, or bundle up and ski or ice fish in the snowy months.

Gilmanton Winery & Vineyard
If the weather doesn’t cooperate or you just are in search of a more relaxing day, you can head about 30 miles north to Gilmanton Winery. Enjoy a lovely view of the vineyard while sampling a flight of the wines. Follow your tasting with a delicious dinner or visit on Sunday for brunch. And if you explore the grounds, you just might find a couple of barnyard animals who call the place home, including Olive, a juliana pig that loves to be pet.

Northwood Lake
If you don’t want to venture far, drive just 15 minutes to nearby Northwood Lake, a beautiful and popular fishing destination. US Route 222 runs along the lake’s northern bank and is dotted with shops and restaurants, such as Northwood Old Books and Northwood Diner.

Walks in the Woods

Take a trip down one of these nearby hiking trails in your Getaway cabin backyard.

Oak Hill Trails
Distance: 5.8 miles, about 2-3 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Dogs allowed on-leash
For a long but not difficult hike, try the trail leading to the old fire tower. Climbing the fire tower will provide you with a lovely panoramic view of the area.

Road Trip Curiosities
Start to disconnect from your daily life and explore something new before you even reach your tiny home by visiting these destinations along the way.

Robie’s Country Store
9 Riverside St, Hooksett, NH 03106
Much more than just a simple country store, Robie’s is a historic spot that is well worth the visit – and many politicians agree, as a huge part of its history is campaign stops by presidential candidates over the years. The current building has been standing since 1887, so you can peruse history, get a delicious meal at Roots Cafe, and pick up local New Hampshire products to take back to your cabin, just twenty minutes away.

On the Local Menu

Blasty Bough Brewery
3 Griffin Rd, Epsom, NH 03234
Within walking distance from your cabin, this hidden gem serves up local flavors rooted in tradition. Dogs are welcome, and you can even get a discount on tasters if you let them know it’s your first Getaway.
