Romantic Fall Packages in DINE Country, Part II – Massachusetts and New Hampshire

coupleIn the second of our Fall In Love series of packages from the Distinctive Inns of New England (DINE), this week we explore options for finding love in all the right places at DINE inns in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Part I of this series explored romantic getaway packages at inns in Maine, Vermont and Connecticut.

While we may be past peak color in most Massachusetts and New Hampshire, the calendar still says it’s fall.  This is that harvest to holidays time of year when travelers seek a pre-holiday getaway.  And this year, travel is focused on smaller, owner-occupied and safe inns and B&Bs offering the ideal intimate setting for a secure and romantic getaway. All 10 DINE inns offer ideal New England romantic escape settings, with flickering fires, delicious breakfasts and beautiful settings for outdoor recreation. Today, we’ll focus in on Massachusetts and New Hampshire inns.
