Winter Can Be Just Too Long! Plan Now For A Cabin Fever Cure!

A fun-filled weekend trip is a great way to cure cabin fever. Join us as we travel to western Massachusetts to enjoy Maple Days at Old Sturbridge Village and a tour of Historic Deerfield. At Sturbridge Village we’ll be immersed in a re-created early 19th-century rural New England community where costumed interpreters demonstrate life in the early 1800s. The smell of wood smoke and maple syrup is a sure sign that the sap is rising and spring is on the way. Dinner this evening is a Fireplace Feast at the Salem Cross Inn where the history and culture of 1700’s America is captured perfectly. While your dinner is cooking to perfection, enjoy a horse drawn wagon ride through the valley. Salem Cross Inn’s dining events have been featured on Food Network and chosen as the “Hidden Jewel” by Boston’s Phantom Gourmet. Our overnight accommodations are at the award winning Comfort Inn in Sturbridge. Consistently rated number one by Tripadvisor, this property offers inviting rooms, free wifi, an indoor pool and a hot breakfast buffet. On Sunday we’ll begin the day with a guided tour of the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Gardens, featuring a glass conservatory filled with some 3,000 butterflies of all colors, shapes, sizes and varieties. The sun shines through the glass walls and heats up the conservatory to an 80-degree tropical-like environment all year round. Late morning takes us to Richardson’s Candy Kitchen in Deerfield where they have been dipping hand made chocolates for years. We’ll enjoy a demonstration and samples. Don’t leave without trying their famous dixies! Lunch today is the March Maple Buffet at the historic Deerfield Inn. Our afternoon activities include a guided tour of historic Deerfield, an authentic 18th-century New England village which celebrates our New England heritage.
