High above the Connecticut River that separates New Hampshire from neighboring Vermont, Cornish redefines the term bucolic. There’s no town proper, or even a main street—just a handful of villages. And neighboring Mount Ascutney makes for great color viewing. Be sure to cross the Cornish-Windsor bridge into Vermont—the longest covered wooden bridge in the world.
Fall Color Hotel: Chase House Bed and Breakfast in Cornish is a 10–guest room inn that dates back to 1776. Doubles from $165.
