In April of 2009 and 2010, Linda and Brian attended the Discover New England International Tourism Summit to begin selling the inn to international travelers via tour receptives here in the US and Tour Operators overseas. We met with German, English, French, Italian, Dutch and Chinese tour operators to discuss selling our country inn rooms to this market. Our region of the state is often passed over with many of the tours going to The coast of Maine, up to North Conway, across to Vermont and down throught the Berkshires and Connecticut before heading back to Boston to fly back to Europe. Pecco Beaufays from the Highland Lake Inn in East Andover and our inn hope to change this and welcome more travelers to our beautiful part of the state of NH.
In April 2009 we signed two contracts, one with a tour receptive in Boston and another one in NYC. These were for April 2010-April 2011, so this is our first season being sold to these overseas travelers. We welcome our first internationals through this program at the end of August and have many different couples arriving through the end of October. It seems predominantly Italian and German couples are booked.
We are excited to have these customers come and feel confident that they will enjoy the beauty of the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region as much as we do.
