Is there any better time to be in New England, home of lovely autumns and white winters? Celebrate the season with this Escape to the Mountain Edge Resort & Spa in Mt. Sunapee, New Hampshire.
You and a companion will spend one night in a One-Bedroom Den Suite, Sundays through Thursdays from December 1, 2012, to April 7, 2013 ($169). If snow sports are your thing, opt for the same stay plus two full-day lift tickets at Mount Sunapee ($269). Or, extend winter vacation to two nights—Fridays and Saturdays from December 1 to 25, 2012, or March 9 to April 7, 2013—and receive two full-day lift tickets at Mount Sunapee ($439).
Your spacious One-Bedroom Den Suite boasts a TV, DVD player, gas fireplace, and balcony or patio. And, if you purchase a stay with lift tickets, you'll receive half-day room use with 5 p.m. late checkout, so nothing has to rush you off the slopes.
When snow is on the ground, make a date with fresh powder and cruise down 66 trails at Mount Sunapee. "This mid-sized mountain 'packs a punch,' thanks to meticulously groomed terrain, relentless mogul runs, gentle cruisers, and spectacular panoramas of the lake and beyond," says SKI. Expert skiers can seize the day at the terrain park or zoom over the moguls on Flying Goose.
Those who prefer a quieter retreat can take a leisurely stroll around quaint New England towns like New London and Sunapee, browsing antique stores and soaking up the picturesque scenery.
Once you return to the resort, thaw out in the sauna, hot tub, or saltwater pool before purchasing a restorative treatment at the on-site spa. You can sate a growling stomach at The Mountain Spirits Tavern, treating yourself to a dinner of prime rib or wild salmon followed by a round of beers, of course.
And don't spend a minute thinking about breakfast the next morning; just have the Rosewood Barn General Store deliver all the staples—like cereal, milk, juice, and eggs—to your kitchen before you arrive.
With autumn showing off its true colors and winter waiting in the wings, it's high time for a New England getaway.
