DINE inns offer the ideal kick off to summer with specials and packages

Summer bench at Rabbit Hill InnSpring has finally sprung throughout DINEcountry, and the Distinctive Inns of New England (DINE) are celebrating with a collective promotion called the DINE kick-off to summer.  Only once or twice a year do so many of the 12 DINE inns mutually offer a DINE promotion.  Each year our former Cyber Monday or more recently 12 Days of Christmas offers have been a tradition, but after the winter we’ve had, the Distinctive Inns of New England members felt that their guests should have a nice incentive for a start–of-summer romantic getaway.  So, they created the Kick off to Summer promotion, filled with lots of complimentary extras, discounts and unique packages.  The offers all have different valid dates, but they are generally offered from Memorial Day weekend through mid-June, so you’ll want to reserve soon to get them on the vacation calendar.

The best place to learn all about the offers is the visit the Seasonal Packages page at DistinctiveInns.com. Here you’ll find a list of all the Kick off to Summer packages, listed state-by-state with all the valid dates, and fine print. Remember, these packages and offers can’t be combined with any other offer, discount, promotion or third-party booking. In addition, these offers are good on new reservations only.    Be sure to read all the details of the Kick off to Summer promotion on the DINE website, but this will give you a little sneak preview of the kinds of offers in store.
