Eleventh Annual Maple Madness - March©
For those who feel touring just isn't enough

Each year Spring arrives with the promise of new things to come...again this year something traditional has a wonderful new twist...

Tap into the fun of the
March Maple Madness, Inn-to-Inn Maple tour

Here in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, we are blessed with one of Mother Nature's wonders...the 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 19, between the hours of 10:30 AM and 5PM, these historic inns will offer you the opportunity to experience a self-guided tour of the participating properties; sampling a wide 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 Maple Country Partners©, neighbors who will be happy to share their North Country stories, too. You'll be able to visit one or several Sugar Houses, should you choose, 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 us.
Experience 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.

For those who feel touring just isn’t enough

A wild and woolly inn-to-inn event held together by maple syrup and wacky fun ... with prizes galore!

For those ticket holders who are a bit more daring, here is an opportunity to win prizes worth hundreds of dollars. Go ahead, take the "Hare Raising Quiz" or, better yet, find all the pieces to the "Maddening Scavenger Hunt".

Along the trail there will be places, people, and things to visit, find, retrieve. And for extra points, bring your own digital, Polaroid, or video camera to document suggested photo ops.

The participant who accomplishes every dictate on the Maple Madness - March©, and scores the most points, will win a bundle of prizes including: A $200 certificate good toward a two-night stay at any participating Inn and a basket of goodies from our participating Inns and Maple Country Partners©.

All completed Maple Madness - March forms which are entered will be reviewed by a panel of judges of dubious qualification. Their awarding of extra points will be based on originality, creativity, and whimsy. Their opinions may be meaningless, but will be final (like any governmental body!).

There is no additional charge to participate in the Maple Madness - March, but the rewards could be incomprehensible. Come on give it a try. Let us know if you're interested...we dare ya!

March is a sweet time for maple sugaring
