We have been a Great North Woods tradition for over 36 years. We are open year round for all to experience the beauty and vastness of the last frontier in New Hampshire. For those who enjoy snowmobiling, fishing, hunting, hiking or just relaxing in clean comfortable cabins, join us New Hampshire’s Northernmost Town An Untouched Oasis Few places offer the charm, scenery, and recreational opportunities found in the state’s northernmost town. If fishing, hiking, boating, moose-watching, snowmobiling, skiing, ice fishing, or just relaxing are on your list of favorite things to do, then Pittsburg is the vacation spot for you. The largest township in the North-east, Pittsburg encompasses 300 square miles. Along with the famous Connecticut Lakes, there are scores of back-country ponds and streams, and miles of wood roads available for touring by foot, car, or snowmobile. Lake Francis, First, Second and Third Connecticut Lakes, offer excellent cold water fisheries on largely undeveloped shorelines, and have some of the finest trout and salmon fishing to be found anywhere. While fishing is a popular sport, the lakes and the Connecticut River are also used for boating. For those interested in more passive forms of relaxation, the 28-mile drive from Pittsburg village to the Canadian border is a scenic drive almost guaranteed to net you a view of at least one moose. Chinook winds howling, snow six feet deep, temperature zero, wind chill minus 50 degrees, this is Pittsburg in the winter. Nothing accelerates a snowmobiler’s heartbeat more than miles of well-groomed snowmobile trails. Mountains covered in rime frost and glistening under an azure sky, this type of magnificent scenery marks this territory from almost every trail.
Welcome to Philbrook Farm Inn! We offer simplicity rather than luxury, genuineness rather than pretense. Everywhere you look are images and memorabilia of the way life used to be. Here the better things of yesterday are combined with the necessities of today. Philbrook Farm Inn has been making people feel right at home since 1861, and why not? -- we Philbrooks live here too!

The highest mountain in the northeast, Mt. Washington (6,288), is only a 20 minute drive. The White Mountains are spectacular in any season, and are full of activities and family attractions. There are trails leading from the inn's door that will take you hiking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing for endless miles of adventure!
