It seems like Mother Nature does not want to let go of winter just yet in the Androscoggin Valley. There is STILL some great downhill & cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dogsledding, tubing and snowmobiling for the winter enthusiasts out there! Visit the Androscoggin Valley Chamber of Commerce website to make plans to Eat, Shop & Explore our winter wonderland while it lasts! You will find a great variety of lodging, dining, exploring & retail establishments that will be sure to satisfy every visitor.
In the Androscoggin Valley, you could say we have 6 seasons instead of 4! With the warmer temps during the day, our sweetest season of all is in full swing…Maple Season! A visit to Bisson’s Sugar House in Berlin, NH is a treat for the entire family. Bisson’s is family owned and operated dating back to 1921. Their family will make your visit a memorable one while touring the facility and sampling some maple butter, taffy, candy and my all-time favorite…pure maple syrup over vanilla ice cream! Visit their website and call ahead for operating times as the weather has a major influence on their hours.
Wondering what the 6th season is that I mentioned? Well…with the days getting warmer and warmer and the snow melting, you guessed it – Mud Season! The miles and miles of trails will be closed for mud season soon so be sure to check the trail conditions often and you can also sign up for trail updates to be sent to your email. What can you do during Mud Season? You can take the time to plan YOUR next adventure in the Androscoggin Valley.
Whether you are planning a weekend or week, with a family or as a couple…the variety of things to do and places to explore are endless! Storyland, Santa’s Village and the Mt. Washington Auto Road are just minutes away. Or pack up your OHRV and head north, stay at our OHRV friendly lodging hotels, cabins or campgrounds and ride right from your room! Don’t have an OHRV? We got that covered too! Call to reserve at one of our local rental businesses. The fun is endless with hiking, biking, kayaking and white water rafting too!
