B&B Friday (8/13/10)!

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone (...eek!)

I just returned from my trip to New Hampshire yesterday,
and let me just say, my mother and I fell so deeply in 
love with the Monadnock region that we're seriously 
planning on relocating there some time next summer!
Can you believe it? Me, finally living in New England....
Lifelong dream coming true!

I have many, many photos and experiences to share, 
but you'll all just have to wait till Monday for me to get 
myself together... Don't fret, you won't be disappointed! :)

In the meantime, here are three
beautiful B&B's I think you'll enjoy . . .

"A 19th century farmhouse on a country lane midst 25 acres of fields and woods, distinctively different, a true country inn offering uniquely decorated guest rooms, a charming blend of two centuries - the warmth of early furnishings combined with contemporary comforts.

Country chic cuisine to pamper your palate. A place to relax, to re-create one’s spirit"

Wishing you luck on this day!


  1. I think Marblehead is a little too close to where I live to require an overnight stay but the other two look lovely.

    Looking forward to your photos but I might not catch up til after my trip to the Vineyard next week.

  2. Relocating? Wow! I guess you really did like the area! Good for you! And I'll have someone to cover the other side of the state in their blog. LOL!

  3. Look at those pumpkins to the left! Love those! It's almost time...I really like the Waterford, ME room above. Happy weekend! :)Alyssa

  4. Howdy neighbor!

    Thats the region in New Hampshire my family is from! The family farm is still lived in by my cousin, since the 1700's. (Well, not the same cousin all that time *))
    Can't wait to see the pics. I dream of relocation there too. Might see ya at the corner grocer someday.......

  5. Oh my gosh..these are all so beautiful! Decisions...decisions:) Glad you gues had a wonderful time and I can't wait to hear your stories and see your pictures!

    xoxo Gert

  6. I am so happy you loved NH so much! I knew you would!!! That would be fabulous if you relocated there! We could meet up and have all kinds of New England adventures! :-)

  7. wow...that would be so cool to finally move there! i can't wait to see the pics!

  8. I went to Marblehead last week for the first time. A very charming town indeed and we walked right by the inn you mention. I was dying to do more than peek in the windows, but alas I didn't have the funds necessary to stay there. great ice cream shop in town and beautiful old homes and shops. Marblehead Neck is right on the water and has a beautiful park. Hope you get to go there sometime soon.

  9. I love these B & B's! Do you think they will allow four year old twins to visit with them! :)

  10. Oh, my I won't tell Cape Cod, she will be very jealous of NH.....I know what you mean, though. It is a lovely place....there are many good financial reasons for living there as well. So happy you had such a great time. xox

  11. Very nice! I recently met the innkeepers of the Inn at Ormsby Hill in Manchester. The inn has a very interesting history and the setting is gorgeous!

    Hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer, Erin!


Thanks for your thoughts!
