A Message from Your Innkeepers

Dear Friends:

The beginning of the Autumn season is always a highlight for us here at the Inn in beautiful New Hampshire!  The weather has been delightful and to help insure another brilliant fall foliage season the evenings have been surprisingly cool and of course the days are getting shorter.  Those increasingly longer hours of darkness are actually key elements in helping the leaves change color- something we always look forward to every year.

Apples are ready for picking, the firewood is stacked and ready to go for chillier nights in our wood burning fireplaces and our new fall menu promises some seasonally fresh new items plus many of your favorites.

Let us help you find the best photo spots, including our covered bridge just a few blocks away over the Contoocook River, locally grown apples to pick and some of the best cider apple donuts you’ll ever find. Since we sit on the Currier & Ives Byway, we can show you how to follow this route for some beautiful vistas and great pictures too.  Lots of fairs and events nearby throughout the fall season including the Pumpkin Regatta in nearby Goffstown, NH!  Come visit soon as the fall season books up quickly!

Remember we are just one stop sign away from Boston (really!) and only a 90 minute drive. We look forward to welcoming you to the Inn soon.

Warmest regards,

Mason and Cyndi Cobb
