November is an excellent month to treat yourself to a romantic getaway or a family excursion before the holiday craziness has you in its grip. This month, choose and cut your own Christmas tree at The Rocks Estate, tune up your ski and snowboard gear at Drummond’s Mountain Shop, and relax and unwind at the comfortable Town & Country Inn and Resort.
A Favorite Destination For Over 60 Years
The beautiful Androscoggin Valley in northern New Hampshire beckons visitors throughout the year, and many make The Town & Country Inn and Resort in Shelburne their home base while they explore the region’s many attractions.
Owned by the Labnon family since 1956, the 160-room inn is famous for its unique brand of hospitality known as TLC, “Tender Labnon Care.” From first time visitors to repeat guests, TLC is lavished on everyone who stays at the Town & Country, whether they come for the night, for the weekend or a longer vacation.
Along with the comfortable accommodations, the Resort boasts a dining room that seats 180 guests, four banquet rooms, a lounge with live entertainment on weekends, an indoor heated pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and a full health club facility. All rooms have free high-speed Internet, connecting rooms are available, and the Resort is pet friendly.
The Town & Country serves breakfast and dinner daily and lunch on Sundays, and is famous for serving “the best prime rib ever.” Check out the Resort’s website for a peek at the Thanksgiving menu. Enjoy a fabulous meal without all the hassle!
And, depending on the time of year, the Town & Country offers multiple packages to make your visit more enjoyable.

Delight in choosing the perfect Christmas tree at The Rocks Estate this season. Add a festively decorated wreath for the front door.

Browse for gift items in The Marketplace.
Holiday memories for you and your family are just waiting to be made at The Rocks. Dress warmly for a leisurely walk through rolling fields of Christmas trees to choose and cut one for your home, or select a freshly cut tree from the retail lot at the farm, where willing helpers will wrap and load your tree onto your vehicle for you (tree selection is available November 18 through Christmas Eve).

The Marketplace, stocked with gifts galore, is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., through Christmas Eve, and features New England-crafted and Fair Trade items. The Rocks’ own maple syrup makes a great stocking stuffer, as does its 2017 holiday ornament featuring a New Hampshire moose.
