Interested in these Vermont and New Hampshire Inns for sale? Give us a call. In New England resort areas the green doesn’t stop when the snow melts. If you have ever spent any time in Vermont and New Hampshire in the summer and fall you know what I mean.
A great winter season brings in the green but just around the calendar corner is spring skiing, warmer sun and longer days and March maple sugaring. Followed by summer hiking and biking, fall foliage and that crisp air with the hint of winter to come.
Question? Do you know what ‘stick season ‘ is? That brief time after fall foliage when the trees are bare and innkeepers can take a brief break!
Vermont and New Hampshire are not the only winter wonderlands. Maine winters are prime time for winter lovers. Next blog will feature the green that comes from the Camden Hills, Rockland, Bethel, Fryeburg, Moosehead Lake and more. Stay tuned.
