For those New Yorkers who are yearning to leave the cell phones and hectic pace of everyday life behind — even if only for a little while, two New Hampshire inns have created a hiking package designed to let guests explore the peaceful New Hampshire countryside at their own pace. It is the perfect summer or fall escape from New York City.
The Rosewood Country Inn and the Candlelite Inn in Bradford, NH have created a “Hiking NH” package to be offered Sunday through Thursday four times this summer and fall: June 10 to 14, July 8 to 12, August 19 to 23, and September 16 to 20.
These self-guided hiking getaways are the perfect mix of fun, exercise, and relaxation. Blessed with an abundance of easy-to-climb mountains and scenic trails, the Sunapee Region is a vibrant patchwork of quaint villages, quiet forests, pristine lakes, and babbling brooks. Participants enjoying the Hiking NH package can also enjoy a side trip to a local blueberry or raspberry farm during summer, or revel in the colorful palette of New Hampshire’s foliage while sampling local apple cider and maple syrup during the fall. And with stays at two charming country inns, it’s one of the best ways to experience New England, plain and simple.
The “Hiking NH” package includes:
- 4 nights lodging (2 at each inn)
- 2 dinners (one at each inn)
- 4 breakfasts
- 2 backpack lunches
- 1 gourmet picnic (where?)
- SRKG Trail Guide
- Admission to The Fells Historic Estate & Gardens
- Yoga session (where?)
This package is priced at $409 per person based on double occupancy (subject to availability), and is exclusive of tax and gratuities. To make a reservation, call the Candlelite Inn at 603-938-5571 or 888-812-5571 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
