Round Out Our Season with a Cozy NH Vacation


As the warm summer days condense into crisp fall days the lake and leaves start changing from deep greens to brilliant yellow and orange hues. As one of the best New Hampshire Lake Resorts, we pride ourselves in making our guest feel right at home in their rentals. Plus, our NASWA Resort Cottages and Suites offer breathtaking views of natures’ wardrobe change.

New Hampshire Lake Resorts Prepare for Fall

Planning the perfect trip to catch the peak foliage in New Hampshire can be challenging, however with weather trackers, we can approximate color change weekly throughout the fall season. At NASWA Resort, we give our guests a front row seat to nature’s fireworks from the comfort of our Lakeside Suites at one of the best New Hampshire Lake Resorts.

Fall Foliage in NH

Fall colors are developing nicely in the Lakes region, our peak colors will be arriving shortly. Although there is still some green, the trees are definitely showing enough colors for us to announce that fall is here! If you are looking for a nice drive with some early signs of foliage, you can take a quick trip around our New Hampshire Lake resorts or grab a cozy sweater and your sweetheart for a stroll around the Lake. Take to the water to fully immerse yourself into the season and embark on a kayak for some quiet time out on the Lake.


New Hampshire Lake Resorts offer the best display of fall foliage, so make sure to book your autumn getaway at NASWA Resort for the peak season! Not only will you enjoy gorgeous fall sceneries, but you’ll also get to spend quality time with loved ones on a fun family getaway.
