Is it Spring Yet?

Is it Spring Yet?
Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn.

Here is an example of Spring in New Hampshire. We received several inches of snow, pushing us ever nearer to breaking our 100 year record. While it has been a GREAT winter, we are all ready to run barefoot through green grass! Maybe in a couple of months…in the meantime sleigh rides are still going strong and the snowshoeing and x-country skiing conditions are fantastic!
The inn will be closed for mud season from April 6 through 17. Hopefully when we return there will be a little less of the white stuff. We are running some Super Spring Specials during April and May, so don’t forget to check out our website from time to time…

Our View, Plus Icicles!

Our View, Plus Icicles!
Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn.Unlike last year, we have tons of snow AND icicles. Sleigh rides have been keeping us busy so far; everyone wants to treat themselves to our romantic, private rides! No need to plan ahead…we offer a last minute special every week to help motivate you to come play with us. Bring your cross country skis or snowshoes and set a day aside to enjoy our groomed trails. If you forget, you can use ours for a small rental fee. Oh, and if you call and no one answers, leave a message…we’re out skiing!

XC in the White Mountains is Awesome!

Conditions don’t get any better than this! We have received 11/2 feet of snow, at least, in the past two weeks. We invite you to come stay with us and enjoy some GREAT xc skiing and snowshoeing here on the property. Warm up with some hot beverages and homemade cookies every afternoon. We also offer great deals on skiing at Cranmore Mountain when you stay here for two nights, either midweek (save a bundle) or weekend.

Wonderful Midwinter Conditions…

Midwinter Greetings From The Darby Field Inn!

After squeaking by with just enough snow to run the sleighs, Valentine’s Day brought what we needed …SNOW! While many people rushed to postpone their dinner reservations, those with sleigh rides booked braved the elements for a romantic, snowy ride straight out of a Currier & Ives painting!
In fact, there are so many people booking sleigh rides we had to add another team, the Welsh Cobb Ladies. These black beauties were sent to special training camp, then got their hooves broken in doing carriage rides this past summer. All that hard work paid off as they are now proving to be a fantastic addition to the Darby Field family, helping Spike create winter memories for hundreds of people this season…

Of course, Spike is a well known fixture around here, known for having his own distinct personality. Its difficult to tell which he enjoys more - pulling guests in the sleigh, or hamming it up with them in front of the camera!

Vacation week was busy, and is now winding down, but there’s more winter fun in store. The Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce (mtwashingtonvalley.org) is hosting a Winter Festival for ten days in the village of North Conway. There are tons of activities to get involved in all day long. Some are free, some require a small fee, but are worthwhile. And we all know the best way to unwind after a busy day of running around looking at exhibits, or shopping… putting your feet up in front of a roaring fire after having a wonderful meal in our dining room!

We have some of the nicest cross country skiing and snow shoeing trails in the valley! Did I tell you they are private and for our guests only. Marc (he’s the innkeeper for those that don’t know) is testament for the conditions out here in the back country… they are incredible!

Many guests have been out today and have raved about the magnificent view from the top of the hill. It’s so peaceful and quiet on the trails they explain to us. A fox was seen scampering across the field. Oh, it’s good to have the snow!! Thank you mother nature.
