Good evening ♥

"Longfellow's Wayside Inn—a nationally significant historic landmark—is an old Inn and tavern that has been serving travelers along the old Boston Post Road for almost 300 years. What began as an extension of David Howe's family home in 1716, the Inn has thrived through years of growth and expansion and survived because of its important history and beautiful setting.
From its Colonial roots to Henry Ford's historic preservation of the property as a living museum of American history, the Wayside Inn offers a unique experience of history—a step back in time in a warm and hospitable setting. The Inn is the perfect backdrop for your own memory-making occasions.
Longfellow's Wayside Inn offers quiet settings for a leisurely visit, historic rooms for dining with family and friends, and comfortable guest rooms. The Inn serves lunch and dinner 364 days a year and has ten guest rooms for overnight accommodation."

"For more than 25 years this impressive Squam Lake bed and breakfast has been the choice of discerning travelers looking for a warm and inviting New Hampshire lodging experience. Located at the northern edge of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region and in the foothills of the White Mountains, the Inn On Golden Pond was originally built as a beautiful, private colonial home. It has since been expanded and refurbished to provide the modern amenities that today’s traveler expects and deserves.
Here the rustic appeal of New Hampshire and the convenience of the 21st century meet. Imagine being surrounded by 50 wooded acres, but only 3 1/2 miles from I-93. Imagine seeing a black bear during your breakfast and within minutes using your blackberry and our wireless internet service to share the experience with friends anywhere in the world. Imagine a day of hiking in the wilderness or kayaking in secluded coves followed by an evening enjoying the performance of a symphony orchestra or the exquisite food of a gourmet restaurant. Or imagine a day of endless business meetings and constant calls offset by a night where the only calls you’ll hear are those of loons and the only thing endless is the number of stars sparkling in our country sky."

"The Ira Allen House, featured in the Boston Globe and Newsday, is a cozy country inn in the Battenkill Valley of Southern Vermont. It is one of the oldest Inns in Vermont and a state historic site. The tavern and the bedrooms... are over 200 years old. It was built by Ethan Allen, of Green Mountain Boys fame and Ira Allen (Ethan's brother) who was the Surveyor-General of Vermont.
The large hand-hewn beams and the handmade bricks of the fireplace testify to the age and history of the original building. The 'new' part of the inn was added in approximately 1846, with wide-board floors throughout, and some hand-blown panes of glass still evident.
The inn is located in a four-season resort area. We are 3 miles north of Arlington, and 1 mile south of Manchester, on Historic Route 7A. We are located 1/2 mile south of the famous Mount Equinox Skyline Drive, within easy walking distance of several antique and gift shops."

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I have always wanted to go to Longfellow's Wayside Inn. Looks really nice!

  2. AHHHHH! We went to Longfellow's for my birthday dinner this past April! We sat at the table to the left of the one you can see in front of the fireplace on your photo. ;)

    It was close to Patriot's Day, and there were a few gentleman dressed in period clothing playing the fife in a little room near the entrance. I highly recommend a visit there! They have periodic weekend family events, too! We took all four of our kids!
