Eleven signs that summer is still going strong in DINE country

Over and over we hear our guests lament that this summer in particular went by way too quickly!  It went by so fast, in fact, that we’re out to prove that while Labor Day may be the unofficial end of summer, we’re still hanging on tight to the fact that summer is not over in #DINEcountry!  We’ll prove it with photos which tell a thousand words.

It won’t be long now before fall hits the trees in Northern New England.  In the meantime, we’re all still basking in the warm days and cooler nights of early September.  Be sure to book your September getaway at one of the 11 DINE inns soon, because as we like to say, “book now or forever hold your peep!”

See you soon in #DINEcountry.
