New Hampshire Part 2 ~ Peterboro and Shopping

There are many quaint towns in New Hampshire. Peterboro was number one on our list to visit. You see, the first year we were married, hubby went to Peterboro on a business trip.  He thought it was such a cute town and he talked about how much he thought I would like it.  So it seemed appropriate to go there on our 20th anniversary. He was right. I loved it. The quintessential New England town. It was even the inspiration for the town in  Thorton Wilder's play "Our Town".

And yes, the weather was this beautiful every day we were there. Perfect. Magical, really.

So many goodies.

These dainty teacups were really sw…

Breakfast was included and was super yummy.
Fresh fruit and homemade granola were served every morning
and then you could select from a menu.
The French Toast was amazing.
I didn't take any pictures of the food - I guess I was too busy eating it!



They also have a wonderful dinner menu. I tried the apple parsnip soup one evening.   I wasn…
