We hope to see you soon!

The Monadnock Region provides plenty of opportunities to take advantage of each season. In winter there is skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, holiday shopping and more. Fall offers harvest festivals, apple picking, and local in-season produce for every dinner table. Summer of course creates the perfect backdrop for weddings and events, as well as berry picking, hiking and activities out on the water. Many may think of spring to be a much quieter time, and that’s not incorrect. But it is also the perfect time to enjoy taking advantage of that quiet. Below are a few ideas for your springtime visit to the area to make the most of the season!
