Charming Small Towns in Grafton County - White Mountains - Badger Peabody & Smith RealtyNew Hampshire's Grafton County is filled with dozens of cities and towns with gorgeous views, delicious restaurants, outdoor activities, and more. Some of its best locations for both residents and visitors are the charming small towns that often harken back to a simpler time.

To give you an idea of what to expect, our real estate agents have put together a list of our five favorite small towns in the area:

  1. Lincoln
    Like other small towns found in New Hampshire, Lincoln is surrounded by the very best that nature has to offer. Many people who have visited the area in winter have come here for the Ice Castle attraction, consisting of hundreds of thousands of ice caves, an ice slide, and more created in the early winter by a professional ice building crew. Others search for Lincoln homes for sale because of the town's easy access to the White Mountains, some of which will end up staying at the Loon Mountain Resort during their first visit. Before winter arrives, however, you may want to hop on board the Hobo Railroad for a historical train ride that takes you into the White Mountain National Forest.

  2. Sugar Hill
    What this tiny town lacks in population—at last count, it was just above 600 residents—it makes up for in quaintness and relaxation. Sugar Hill is mostly known for its annual Lupine Festival, yet you can always enjoy the sights thanks to its historical homes, wide-open fields, gorgeous farms, and natural beauty. Although we just barely missed it, every June brings blooming lupines that burst forth in pinks, purples, and whites. But don't worry—the rustic Polly's pancake parlor is another favorite for the region and is always serving up the tastiest flapjacks around. If you love small towns, be sure to check out Sugar Hill homes for sale.

  3. Hanover
    Hanover has been on the map for a long time, thanks to Dartmouth College, the students of which make up approximately one-third of its population. What's funny, though, is that many people have no idea there's an Ivy League college near the many Hanover homes for sale. Some of the town's highlights include the lovely Nugget Theater, which offers an intimate theater experience, and the Dirt Cowboy Cafe, far from the normal Starbucks experience. If you decide to visit or live in the area, we suggest you stop by the Hood Museum of Art, which is home to works by Pablo Picasso, Georgia O'Keeffe, and others.

  4. Littleton
    Popular with locals and visitors because of its identification as a river town, Littleton is filled with natural beauty and fun and thriving downtown area. There are many different restaurants and shops found close to Littleton homes for sale, including Chutters, which holds the world record for the longest candy counter at 112 feet. Other hotspots include the Opera House, Little Village Toy & Bookshop, and Lahout's Ski Shop, which is now on its fourth generation of family ownership.

  5. Plymouth
    Last but certainly not least, we come to the college town of Plymouth. Although it's not an Ivy League school, Plymouth State University is a very popular college due to its incredible teachers, varied curriculum, and gorgeous White Mountains background. It simply screams "small town" thanks to its covered bridge, white-steepled church, and charming downtown area. While the town itself offers a variety of shops and cafes near many Plymouth homes for sale, residents and visitors love its proximity to outdoor activities found at hotspots like the Polar Caves, Newfound Lake, and Tenney Mountain.
