Snow, just in time for the weekend!

Cross country skiing at Windblown Ski Area, New Ipswich, NH

Wachusett Mountain Ski Area, Princeton
Our 1-2" expected snowfall amount has actually resulted in at least 6"! That means even more fell at Wachusett and Windblown! Grab your skis, pack a bag, and come stay with us for what's sure to be a great weekend. The Patriot's don't start until 8 p.m. on Saturday so that gives you plenty of time to get out all your pent up energy beforehand. During the game we'll provide all the snacks and drinks you'll need.  Wake up reinvigorated to a full New England breakfast before heading off for another day of fun! Only 2 rooms left so book now!

Pecan Pie Muffins

A favorite guest shared this very easy recipe with me along with fresh pecans right from Texas. These muffins taste just like a slice of pecan pie. Heavenly!


2 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
2 large eggs
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together by hand in a large bowl, stirring just until moistened. Scoop into a non-stick muffin tin that has been sprayed with Pam and lightly floured. Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes. Middle will stay soft. Serve warm.  
Yield: 1 dozen
