When you stay with us in Norwich, you’ll find yourself surrounded by the wonders of the Upper Valley; the region spanning both the Vermont and New Hampshire sides of the Connecticut river. The land here is fertile with farmer’s markets, rich with adventure, and seeded with superb cultural institutions. Come and enjoy.
Settle into the Upper Valley
The Connecticut River, forming the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire, was the first major highway to serve the region. This scenic valley offers a Hanover area vacation destination featuring culture, history and scenic splendor. The Norwich Inn is located in the heart of the region, and with easy access to Interstate 91 it is a destination convenient for your next New England vacation.
Whether visiting area attractions such as King Arthur Flour, Woodstock and Quechee or attending events at Dartmouth College, the Inn can serve as a base of operations for your Hanover area lodging and dining needs.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Hanover, New Hampshire based technology companies and agencies such as Hypertherm, and CRREL are all located less than 5 miles from the Inn.
