2016 Foliage Update for June — 13 Comments

  1. Thank you very much and we will for sure be visiting the covered bridges. I have just been overwhelmed with what’s on the internet and since we have never been in the area I just get lost in trying to figure where everything is and what to do. Guess I better find a good map. Thanks again, it nice to know there are people like you that are willing to help …….I am sure I will be asking more questions (if you don’t mind),

  2. Sorry I am on a computer that I am not use to and I am unsure it’s working correctly…I sent my other message after

  3. I have found out today that we will be coming on Oct 15th. I am as we speak looking at staying somewhere close to flume gorge, white mountain, we would like to see some of the sights here. I understand its near Lincoln NH. Will this good time to also see the colors and is this a nice area? Also do you have any recommendations on a nice place to stay. Thanks for your help

    • Look down Route 18 away from the Gorge and you may find some motels. Lincoln is very commercialized and there are lots of motels, hotels and Loon Mountain resort. If Lincoln is full then you will have to start checking the back roads a little.

      As to a good time for this area… 🙂 If I’m right and things are delayed, then you’ll be in the right spot.. BUT! if I’m wrong then you will be driving to the south each day to catch up with the fall colors.. How far south? Hard to say but worst case would be under an hour.

      Route 18 also takes you to route 17 and then a short jump to Polly’s Pancake house (AWSOME and not to be missed)

      Is this a nice area??? are you insane??? it’s a wonderful area!!! If you do hike into the Flume don’t forget the Flume Gorge covered bridge.

      and the Sentinel Pine Covered Bridge

      I hope this helps somewhat

  4. Thank You for the information. Due to our jobs we now know that we will be there Oct 15th. I am as we speak looking for a place to stay. I am looking at something close to flumes gorge…we would like to see this along with some other in the White Mountains. I understand its basically Lincoln NH. Will this be a good time and area and do you have any recommendations on a nice place to stay

  5. We are planning to come to New England in October of 2016 and we were planning on going to stay at the White Mountains on 10/8 thru 10/11 but have found that a lot of the rooms are booked and rather expensive during this period, so we have considered waiting a week and coming 10/15 thru 10/18 and then going to the Boston area for a day or two before we have to return home. Your input and advice would be greatly appreciated if this time frame would be good? Thanks

    • What you might look at is heading over to VT in St Johnsbury or near that area (for the Oct 8-11th) But Columbus Day weekend is when every one will be looking for rooms also. Basically book now for 2017…
      The week after will or should be just south of the White Mountains and into the Lakes region. If you are reading my Tamworth series, this is in that “South of White Mtns” region. Also a trip around Lake Winnipesaukee can be very nice as well and there are lots of farms and places to explore. You can also head across into Massachusetts and explore Salem and the towns of Eastern Mass. Boston will just starting to get some color but it doesn’t usually get good until Nov but makes up for it with history…

  6. We are planning on visiting Vt/NH this year for the first time. I have a home booked for Oct. 2nd – Oct. 8th but it looks like we may need to reschedule. You advise us to come the week before or we will have to wait until after Oct. 15th. Thanks in advance for an advise.

    • Pam it depends on where you are reserving the home. If you are up north, you are fine (White mountains NH or Green mountains in VT) Also you should be fine in the area around Greenville Maine… Also you will be ok if you are a bit further south…

      But if you are in Massachusetts or Rhode Island or Connecticut then you will be traveling many extra miles to get up into any serious fall colors…
      There will be a little color further south but there will be a lot more (if we get some much needed rain)

      I hope this helps…
