Winding Down Winter…Chocolate/Hawaiian Day and Maple Sugar on the Horizon!

Colby Hill Inn

It’s hard to believe after the winter we’ve had….but it’s 48 degrees out there today (but still plenty of snow on Pat’s Peak for the ski hounds) and we’ve had a fabulous and sunny day!

We look forward to this time of year because we start thinking about some of our favorite things. One of them is CHOCOLATE! This weekend is one of the most fun weekends at the inn. Chocolate Lover’s Weekend, I believe this is the 7th Annual or maybe the 6th!

An in- room chocolate gift awaits our guests, a chocolate cooking class is hosted by our chef (with lots of goodies to taste) and recipes to take home for our guests to try themselves. Saturday evening guests enjoy a wonderful dinner and the finale is of course…a chocolate dessert creation. There’s still availability for this special weekend in case you want to make some last minute plans!

Okay…so you still want to ski……so do the folks at Pat’s Peak, which we can see as we write this from our windows (it’s just 3 miles away as the crow flies). Don’t Miss the 19th Annual Hawaiian Weekend at Pat’s Peak March 13 and 14.

There’s a hot tub on the deck (Saturday and Sunday), helicopter rides, a Magic Hat Beer Promo Apres Ski Party in the Sled Pub and a live Reggae Band. Wear your most outlandish Hawaiian shirt, pants, lei and watch the NASTAR Race on Downdraft. Of course, you can come on back to the Inn to rest your toes in front of our toasty fireplace and enjoy a relaxing dinner and comfy sleep before heading back to the mountain the next day!

Next on the horizon is New Hampshire Maple Weekend which is March 27-29. The New Hampshire Maple Producers open their sugaring operations for us to watch the process, learn more about maple sugar and pack up a few bottles to take home. Don’t forget to drench our award winning pancakes at the inn in the REAL THING….. as we only serve real New Hampshire Maple syrup.

Aside from all of those activities, we have completed our interior deep cleaning and are looking to the days getting longer, drier and sunnier so we can begin our outside projects including working on our gardens, parking lots and the normal spring items like trimming, painting etc. Life goes on at the inn as we celebrate our 10th year here and the inn celebrates 50 years of operating as a country inn.
