Childhood memories meet grown-up reality in a dreamy cottage in the heart of New England’s White Mountain National Forest.
A Mini-Cruise to Canada on the NOVA STAR

A Room with a View at The Boxer Boston
The Boxer Boston gives a whole new meaning to “A Room with a View” as it reveals almost the entire Boston skyline from the corner room on its top floor.
Atkinson Resort - Warmth and Comfort in NH
The words “warmth” and “resort” don’t, in my experience, tend to come in the same breath. By their nature, resorts offer a multitude of facilities and activities to a multitude of people, and the warmth of a B&B is just not possible. I learned differently last weekend at the Atkinson Resort

Set in its own wild garden, above a long beach on Cape Elizabeth, Inn by the Sea combines very modern comforts -- and a green attitude -- with old-fashioned sun-and-sand-and-spa relaxation.
Berry Manor Inn in Rockland Maine
Victorian grandeur combines with warm hospitality and a good dose of Yankee independence, not to mention spectacular fresh-baked pies.
Camden Harbour Inn - Perfect Spot to be Snowbound
I had awakened early to that unmistakable deep silence that we northerners instinctively recognize before our eyes are even open. The sound of snow, or rather the stillness of snow.
Candlelight Dinner at Geneva on the Lake
What a treat it is when a place gets everything right. Dinner on the terrace of Geneva on the Lake lived up to everything we expected from this fabled luxury villa in New York’s Finger Lakes.
Captain Lord Mansion in Kennebunkport Maine
My travels always have a purpose. I go to New Brunswick to kayak in the Bay of Fundy. I go to the White Mountains to ski. I never go someplace just to BE there. It's harder than you think. But at the Captain Lord Mansion, it becomes an art form.
Christmas Farm Inn - Warm Welcome in New Hampshire
Without overdoing the Yuletide theme, Christmas Farm Inn keeps the holiday spirit year round, celebrating the simple joys of life each day. Spacious guest rooms and fine country dining welcome guests in all seasons.
Comfort and Luxury at Hilton Boston Logan Airport
The warm hospitality of the staff, the luxurious rooms and flexibility of services to accommodate travelers on weird schedules were impressive – and certainly not what I expect from an airport hotel.
Dexter’s Inn in Sunapee, New Hampshire
There is something both comfortable and comforting about staying in a New England country inn “of a certain age”.

Friday Night at Libby’s Bistro in Gorham NH
We’d heard from friends that Libby’s Bistro was good, but our Friday night dinner was so I-can’t-believe-I’m-eating-something-this-delicious that we went back on Saturday evening to be sure we hadn’t been eating hallucinatory mushrooms.
History and Fine Dining at the Deerfield Inn
Set in the middle of New England’s only National Historic Landmark Village, Deerfield Inn was the perfect setting for a weekend getaway
Hotel Indigo - Luxury in Boston's Burbs
Just off an I-95 exit in the Boston burbs might not be a place you'd look to find a luxury hotel with an outstanding restaurant, but that's where we found both, at the Hotel Indigo in Newton.
Hotel Veritas Perfect for a Weekend in Cambridge
Boston may get more attention, but for many of us, the real heart of “The Hub” is just across the river in Cambridge’s Harvard Square. And The Hotel Veritas is our new home-away-from-home there.
Intercontinental Boston - Beauty on the Waterfront
Contemporary architecture in an historic setting, old-fashioned hospitality at a state-of-the-art hotel – Boston’s Intercontinental Hotel is comfortable in both worlds.
J House Greenwich for Luxury near New York City
Luxury is not having to stay in New York City. We chose the Connecticut alternative and discovered a new hotel with an excellent restaurant and a nearby commuter rail station.
Kayaking the Islands off Acadia National Park
A spectacularly beautiful day on Maine’s northern coast invites exploring coastal coves and islands by sea kayak
Loon Mountain Club Doesn’t Just Pamper Skiers
Ski right out the door and onto the gondola at Loon Mountain Club, in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Or curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book, swim a few laps in the heated pool, luxuriate in the spa and forget the snowy landscapes outside.

In an art-filled get-away, we admire one of Boston’s great art museums, the latest work of one of the world’s greatest architects, and return to a hotel with its own museum of contemporary art.

With the amenities of a hotel, the warmth of a B&B and the charm of a country inn, Rabbit Hill Inn, in Lower Waterford, Vermont, is a good base for outdoor adventures or a do-nothing getaway weekend.
Room with a View - New Hampshire’s Snowvillage Inn
“A Room with a View” was written about a hotel in Florence, overlooking the Arno River as it flows under Ponte Vecchio, the most iconic of all Florentine views. But my favorite room with a view is far from Italy, and the view is a panorama of my own White Mountains, in New Hampshire.
Sam's on the Waterfront - Annapolis Fine Dining
Sam's is what Annapolis is all about: the harbor, boats, fresh seafood, fine dining and good old-fashioned Maryland hospitality with a smart 21st-century style.

The Colonial Inn at Ogunquit Beach in Maine
There’s no denying the appeal of a classic beach town in mid-summer – long stretches of sand, saltwater taffy, clam shacks – and when the town has a well-known summer theater, a long established art colony and a James Beard Awarded restaurant, a summer weekend doesn’t get much better.
