Spring is in the air even though the snow melts slowly. We’ve tapped the trees and are collecting the sap in anticipation of this later season. Meanwhile it is  still perfect weather for cross country skiing and snow shoes! Our recent guests have delighted to the trails around Fitzwilliam and the area. Skiers relish the later season.

 Windblown nordic ski area is still open with loads of trails. Sledders take delight in their rides down our Fitzwilliam slope or go further afield to Granite Gorge where they may also enjoy snow tubing! Granite Gorge in Keene is in full swing with amazing tubing slopes as well! …This is a great time to visit Southwest NH for winter sports or just to seek a quiet space to hunker down and read or to browse the many area antique shops.
