Morning frost, vacant trees, an active woodstove, and the end of the World Series (a better one could not be imagined) all point to summer's end. Our summer and fall were the busiest yet. We ( and the dogs) made many new friends. Please look at the link to the wonderful foliage photos Jacquie took during October.

With fall here and winter close we remind you that Smuggler's Notch ski area is just 30 minutes away. It is rated the best family ski area in the East. In addition we have miles of cross country skiing on our property and expect to groom our trails this season, making it much easier for many of you.

Finally, a reminder of our current special. A "threefer". Stay three nights (or more) and the last night is on us. Plus on that last night we'll provide one of Jacquie's outstanding pizzas PLUS a new fabulous home made desert.

See you soon.

Hi again everyone:

The colors were great, the temperatures fine,
loads of people plus doggies poo.
Now it is cooler, a nip in the air.
Footballs are flying, the leaves are too.
This newsletter says it's November - oh dear,
there's many to thank as that day draws near.

So Mary and Echo, you know we're not fancy.
For proof you need only to ask Jonathan / Nancy.
But thank you I do, along with Tammy,
and I can't forget Carolyn in Miami.
Karin and Cloe I do think of you, plus Jim and Prince Dumont, the Baxters too.

Jim and Deb, it sure was a pleasure
to see you with Mom and Dad together.
Thank you Pat Daniels, and Lynda Bessette
(I'm sorry I'm not through with this list quite yet).
Cause I need to add Jeanine and Audettes,
plus Sandy, Cathy and Ives, you bet.

The Milligans, Pitts, we all had a ball,
we'll see you same weekend again next fall.
Oh Tony and Nina, in just a few weeks,
we'll see Sue and Leeba and kiss a few cheeks.

Be sure that that my naming and thanking a few,
does not mean ungratefulness' to the rest of you. *
We're glad that you come, we're glad that you stay,
We want you to enjoy just every day.

Some of these rhymes are out of the blue,
though my sentiments in all are nothing but true.
If you can do better, my hat I will doff,
But please just remember, I'm just a dog.

Love Isham

* This year, by far, has been our busiest, and I know
Mom and Dad are most appreciative

S nowshoeing has been a way of life in the Green Mountains for well over a century, long before the sport became fashionable again. We've got countless ways to make tracks into the snowy wilderness, whether it's a nature trek, a climb or a winter workout you're looking for.
 Snowshoeing into the sunsetBest of all, when you strap on showshoes in Vermont, you step into a spectacular landscape that seems to have been made just for the sport, all while enjoying one of the healthiest forms of winter exercise.

For starters, Vermont has dozens of king-of-the- mountain climbs: easy, accessible peaks offering stunning winter vistas, and a bunch of rugged 4,000-footers where experienced snowshoers can find the remote solitude and breathtaking beauty of a winter mountaintop. If you want to look for wildlife or explore the tranquility of our snowy forests and fields, we've got untold miles of old logging roads and forest paths, frozen lakes and bogs, nature trails and recreation paths. No matter where you are in Vermont, a great trek is just a few steps away.

If you've never tried snowshoeing but want to get started, that's easy too. We have complimentary snowshoes available for guests at the Inn and over 400 acres to explore.

So come try snowshoeing in its ideal state. It's invigorating exercise, a perfect activity for families and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages, and an inexpensive and easy sport - just find snow, strap snowshoes on and go. And when you snowshoe in Vermont, you'll find a hidden world of surprising beauty and winter adventure. In other words, you'll be taking the perfect steps to enjoy winter.



We take pride in our "Southern Hospitality". But we
found it also in Vermont! We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere, the
beautiful scenery, the history, the 4-legged friends, and the wonderful breakfast.  Thank you for your contribution to a great
