Part II: Visualizing Spring

Throughout New England birds are returning, tiny buds are beginning to show, and spring getaways to romantic New England inns are on the mind. Each of the 11 DINE inns are ready to welcome travelers with everything from outdoor getaways to culinary capers. Even if you don't see spring in your backyard, we're making it easy to see it in ours. Just visualizing spring and summer gardens puts spring in our steps and a smile on our faces.

Visualizing spring in DINE country – Part I

We may have just received upwards of two feet of snow in the Northern parts of DINE country, but it doesn't mean we can't still look forward to spring. Given the winter we've had, spring may not spring forth anytime in the next month, so we thought it might be fun to show you what you have to look forward to. Nothing gets you psyched for spring like a view of the colorful flowers you'll find at the eleven Distinctive Inns of New England. And nothing beats a romantic spring getaway at one of the DINE inns either. We promise it won't be too much longer until you see scenes like this when you visit #DINE country.

Celebrate all things maple in March

From the looks of it, most of the Northern New England states will hold festivals to celebrate the maple syrup running on the weekend of March 21 – 23. This is the time of year when the sap starts running through the New England maples, and sugar houses open up to not only sell but demonstrate how to make maple syrup. March 21-23 is the weekend to schedule your sweetest visit of the year to one of the Distinctive Inns of New England. Not only are you very likely to be served some of that fresh maple syrup, created from trees nearby, but you will also enjoy a fun itinerary including visiting sugarhouses across the state.
