The mercury may be rising but room rates are still low, which makes spring the perfect time to get away for a night or two. Plus, our innkeepers will spoil you with breakfasts smothered in local maple syrup!
New Hampshire Maple Weekend is typically held during the third weekend of March. During this weekend, over 60 sugar houses across the state open their doors to visitors. You'll be able to learn how maple syrup is made and enjoy free samples, horse- drawn rides, sugar on snow, pancake breakfasts and more! For detailed information on maple sugaring weekend and a complete list of sugar houses in New Hampshire, please visit the New Hampshire Maple Producers' Association.

March Maple Madness
Tis the season of maple in New Hampshire. You can almost smell the maple in the air as the sugar houses cook down the sap from the trees for the season. A little tasting goes on, recipes and let’s not forget the scavenger hunt with a prize worth over $400. Embarking on a self-guided Inn-to-Inn tour, ticket holders will sample tasty delights both savory and sweet. Those recipes can be found in a keepsake booklet included in your package. You’ll participate in “The Maddening Scavenger Hunt”. Traveling through the White Mountains there will be opportunities to visit several “Sugar Houses” to experience the maple syrup process first hand, uncover clues, gather objects for the Scavenger Hunt all in an effort to complete the Maple Madness March. The ticket holder who, in the opinion of the panel of judges of dubious distinction, best accomplishes every dictate, and so scores the most points, will win the grand prize.
