A Message from Your Innkeepers

Dear Friends:

If you’re like us, you’ve enjoyed another Thanksgiving with friends and family and are looking toward the upcoming holidays of Christmas and Hanukkah.

This is always such a fun time for us.  Of course, we are also looking at all of the social media posts on decorating ideas including putting twinkle lights inside of wine bottles….ah, we have just a few wine bottles here!!   Last year we put our little reindeer with the twinkle lights on the front lawn of the inn.  Because of the amount of snow we had we weren’t able to free them until some time in March—they were almost Easter reindeer!!  We do love this time of year when we decorate the inn, trim the tree and we see many familiar faces as they visit family nearby, ski at Pat’s Peak and Mt. Sunapee and come to the Inn to celebrate the holidays and ring in the New Year.  It really is a wonderful time of year!

Of course thinking of just the right gift to give is always a big challenge.  You may want to consider a Colby Hill Inn gift certificate or a Cooking Confidential gift certificate for that special person who’d love to learn cooking techniques alongside our talented chefs. What we’ve learned over the years is that the gift of an experience with someone we care about is so much more appreciated than that gadget in a box.

For now, we are swimming in a sea of brilliantly colored ornaments, twinkle lights, garland and did someone say tinsel?

All the best,

Your Innkeepers, Mason and Cyndi
