Foliage Season

The leaves change from summer green to reds, yellows, oranges and golds and New Hampshire bursts into brilliant color. It is the most perfect season. Crisp fall mornings give way to warm Indian summer days. Pumpkins and corn stalks dot the landscape and everyone carries a camera to record this spectacular season.

The 260-ft M/S Mount Washington cruises the waters of Lake Winnipesaukee and reservations go quickly for these fall excursions around the 27-mile long lake. It docks a few minutes drive from the Manor. You can also take a sightseeing Science Center Lake Cruise.

This is a beautiful time of the year to go hiking the White Mountains, biking New Hampshire’s scenic roads, golfing, visiting antique and crafts shops, art galleries and museums. Several towns, such as Warner, NH, have fall foliage festivals and the Highland Games, a fun-filled weekend of Scottish events, is held at Loon Mountain the end of September. You might enjoy a visit to Beans ‘n Greens, a Gilford farmers’ market decked out in fall flowers and produce. Several crafts festivals, such as the Meredith Crafts Fair, occur in the fall. Wolfeboro hosts an Antique and Classic Boat and Car Show in October as well as the Vintage Race Boat Race Regatta at the town docks in September.

At some point in your life, you must come to the Manor during the foliage season.
