A Message from Your Innkeepers

Dear Friends:

New Hampshire is counting down the days until the First in the Nation primary.  We are so proud of this status celebrating 100 years as first in the nation.  So while it’s exciting and busy and we are all learning a lot about the candidate’s position, we are also a little weary of surveys and ads.  But of course, we have the beautiful (snow-covered) scenery of New Hampshire and it’s the time of year for some of our favorite activities, like skiing and snowboarding and of course testing hot toddy recipes!

Of course Valentine’s Day is on every sweetheart’s mind (yes guys, your gals are thinking about it!).  Join us for a wonderful celebration including our regular menu plus a special Four-Course Chef’s Tasting Dinner available Thursday through Sunday 2/14.  Be sure to check out our special  Valentine’s Day Escape.  

We wish you well and hope to see you soon!

Cyndi and Mason Cobb




If winter sports aren’t your thing….and you enjoy cooking and learning more about techniques, check out our Cooking Confidential, an Evening with the Chef cooking classes. This is a great chance to have the opportunity to cook with our chef and ask all those questions about cooking plus enjoy a delicious dinner with wine.

We love this time of year and we always refer to it as our “Rendezvous Season”.  A great time to visit our area—enjoy a crackling fire, freshly baked cookies, a mug of hot cocoa and a chance to explore New Hampshire or, as we always say….do nothing at all but relax!   We hope to see you soon here at the Inn.

All the best,

Your Innkeepers, Mason and Cyndi
