Winter Fun, New London & Sunapee, New Hampshire

Mount Sunapee Resort, December 26, 2011

Winter is a great time to stay at the Inn at Pleasant Lake.  We offer specials all winter long for stays of two nights or more and a midweek dine and stay package.  What better way to get through winter than with one of Chef MacKenzie’s wonderful meals awaiting you at the end of a busy day on the slopes or just a leisurely weekend away from the pressures of eveyday life.

This snow season started off with a bang right before Halloween….oops.  Then again right before Thanksgiving.  Ok, ok, so we want our snow, but not before we are ready, not on nights of big holiday parties or when our guests are traveling to see us.  Picky aren’t we?  We had a bit of snow at Christmastime and not much since.  Fortunately the cold air has set in and our local ski mountains, Mount Sunapee Resort, Ragged Mountain Resort and Pats Peak have been busy blowing their own mini blizzards to get their trails open.  Sunapee reports that they will be at 80% by January 6th.

We can report that the trail system just up behind the inn is beautiful any time of year.  Friends and family hiked the trail on December 22, 2011 and you can see how pretty Little Brook looked with its iced over edges.     Our friends also had an opportunity to hike Mt. Kearsarge before the deep snow set in and captured some great views on December 24th.   We hope you get a chance to visit.
