Six of us (and spouses) who have known each other since grade school put together a mini-reunion in July with the help of Alex and Adam and had a wonderful time – what an easy way to do a reunion! The morning began with Adam’s really, good pancakes on the porch, and twice we were treated to a hot-air balloon lift off above the river right in front of us – rides can be arranged through Adam.
After breakfast the group went in all directions – golfing, canoeing, biking, shopping (we visited the local markets selling maple sugar products and the shops in Hanover, NH just 20 minutes away). Adam suggested lunch next door at the Simon Pierce glass factory/store/restaurant, and we liked the food so much we ate there twice.
A husband and wife team, Adam runs the Inn and Alex “owns” the kitchen. With a staff of 14, someone’s always available to assist with a fresh pot of coffee, directions to take you anywhere, recommendations for restaurants, activities, shopping – just ask. But be sure to make reservations for dinner at the Inn (they don’t serve lunch) because Alex creates meals that mustn’t be missed - she and her staff do a spectacular job (check the menu on their webpage). Twelve of us were seated together on the porch for dinner with only the best from beginning to end – including the wine!
Good friends, good food, good times - we think you’ll agree!
