    If you do not mind going south of the border and like Boston city skyline views try Mt. Wachusett. Only summit I have been to where there is a gold fish pond ! From my experience most mountains with the attributes you describe are going to be crowded. Chocorua was very crowded when I was there 2 years ago. But for good reason, it is a great "little hill". For Vt, Mount Hunger is a great peak under 3800'. Also Mt Belvidere & Ethan Allen peak just south of Camel's Hump on the Long Trail. [preach]Be aware the Green Mountain Club closes high elevation trails from ~April 15 to Memorial day for mud season, see their web page for details. [/preach] Others covered NH & ME much better then I could. You did not ask about NY but the Tongue range at Lake George & Pharoah Mt wilderness would be among my favorite hikes given your criteria.
