Each year Spring arrives with the promise
of new things to come...again this year something traditional has a wonderful
Tap into the fun of
Maple Madness tour.
The White Mountains of New Hampshire are blessed with one of Mother Nature's wonders ... beautiful Sugar Maples. Throughout summer their broad shadows shelter hikers and picnickers from the sun, cooling our mountain air. Of course, the entire world rushes to see them decked out in their dazzling autumn colors. And during our winters they stand as sentries over our ski slopes and trails as we enjoy adventures in the snow. Quietly, in late February and into March, with some variability, Mother Nature gives them her first kiss of spring and the Maple sap begins to flow. Yankee wizards then work their magic for six weeks or so, between the still frigid nights and blustery days to gather that sweet liquid in... and thru their alchemy, one of New Hampshire's most abundant resources produces one of New England's most sought-after treats.
On Saturday, March 25, between the hours of 11 AM and 4PM, these Yankee traditionalists will offer you the opportunity to experience a self-guided tour of the participating properties; sampling a spectrum of maple treats as you go...from
the "Appealingly" sweet
to "Zestfully" savory.
While in transit, you will be invited to visit some of our neighbors who will be happy to share their North Country stories, too. You'll be able to visit one or several Sugar Houses and see how the syrup is made, hear the facts and the folklore that surround New England's liquid gold.
Join the Maple Madness...stay with
the quiet time in the mountains. We’re excited to offer multi-night
packages, introducing you to the magic of maple sugaring, and for the
initiated, a chance to
relive some of the simpler pleasures.
