Lamie’s Inn. If you are looking for an escape from the chaos and bustle of Hampton Beach, you can’t do better than Lamie’s Inn, just up the road in Hampton proper. Built in 1740, this family-owned and operated inn features rooms decorated in authentic colonial style, but with all the modern conveniences. The 24-hour fitness club privileges are a nice touch, too.
