Historic department store turned boutique sleep in downtown Keene, New Hampshire, with a cozy lobby bar and views of Central Square
On Keene’s Main Street, overlooking Central Square, the Lane Hotel occupies a landmark building dating from 1891. Many of the historic accents from the building’s former life as a department store are well preserved and on show, from oversize sash windows to exposed brick walls, but all the modern comforts are present too, including a small bar in the cozy lobby and a workout room. The 40 guestrooms are individually designed but share a fresh gray, white and black color scheme, with red accents in the decorative details. All have windows dressed with checkerboard curtains, plus comfy King or Queen beds, flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffeemakers. Some rooms also offer work desks, refrigerators and whirlpool tubs in the bathrooms. A light continental breakfast (pastries, cereals and coffee) is served in the lobby each morning, and the hotel’s prime location puts restaurants within walking distance. There’s also a petite bar and a fireplace for cozying up after a day of exploring the sights in downtown Keene.
In the Area
In southwestern New Hampshire’s Monadnock region, Keene is a treat for weekend trippers looking for cultural outings, hiking adventures and the laid-back pace of a classic New England town. For shoppers there’s a wealth of locally owned boutiques, including Miranda’s on Main and Your Kitchen Store and More, as well as the quaint Colony Mill Marketplace for a mix of shops and cafés. Outdoors lovers can get their fix on the hiker’s favorite, Mount Monadnock, or in the protected Granite Gorge ski area, where Pinnacle Mountain offers downhill slopes and cross-country terrain. On the dining front, Fireworks restaurant is adjacent to the hotel and offers modern Italian fare and brick oven pizza, or there’s Longhorn Steak House and casual Lindy’s diner, which is famous for its New England clam chowder and the presidents who have eaten there: Obama, Clinton and both Bushes.
