Beautiful Snow

Well, today is dawning with blue skies over new snow. Although the storm was not nearly as bad as predicted we still were blessed with a good 8 inches of the powdery stuff. We are still offering Buy One Get One Coupons for Granite Gorge Ski Area with $10.00 off our nightly room rate. Or bring your own cross country skis and ski for free at the Swanzey Rail Trail, just down the road from the inn. There is ample parking at the covered bridge and the Town of Swanzey does a great job of keeping the parking area plowed. We plan to do some snow shoeing on Mt Caesar in Swanzey Center on Saturday. This is a nice walk that we often use in the summer but it is great in the winter as well. We have seen owls flying about and, while it is not a high hill, the view from the top is reason enough to venture out. It's really just an excuse to have some hot cocoa in front of the warm fire when we get back. So bundle up and come to our snowy corner of New Hampshire, you don't need to spend 4 or 5 hours on the road, all the snow you need is just over the Mass. border in the Monadnock Region of New  Hampshire.
