The first trips listed are in White Mountains of New Hampshire. Further down, we have listed trips which take place outside of New England.  With the sale of Pembrook, we have transferred our White Mountain trips over to The Mountain Fare Inn, in Campton, NH. 

Mountain Fare is a classic White Mountain ski lodge/ bed and breakfast located between Franconia Notch and Squam Lake in Campton’s peaceful Upper Village. The Inn sits on 6 acres in the heart of New Hampshire’s ski, hiking and biking country near Waterville Valley Resort just north of Plymouth, NH. Also nearby are Loon and Cannon Mountains.
