Where is the best place to stay in the White Mountains for the solar eclipse? We are close to 100% totality across our region during the Great North American Solar Eclipse on April 8th, 2024, so location isn’t a challenge – instead, we’d recommend looking for lodging specials. From free solar shades to commemorative goodies and special guest speakers, our hotels, inns, lodges, and motels have pulled out all the stops for this momentous event. They are also close to many other eclipse events

We will regularly update this list of the top solar eclipse lodging deals in the White Mountains, so bookmark this page if you’re in the planning stage!



Do you like your lodging with an outdoorsy vibe? Spend the weekend leading up to the solar eclipse at the AMC's Joe Dodge Lodge in Pinkham Notch or the Highland Center in Crawford Notch. Enjoy comfortable accommodations and a weekend’s worth of astronomical programming for the whole family leading up to eclipse day. If the weather’s uncooperative, you can stay snug indoors and watch the eclipse on a live stream with a catered lunch and hot drinks.
