Join us December 13 - 14, 2014 - the weekend the Country Inns in the White Mountains assure holiday revelers the ultimate in sweet dreams at the "The Taste of Christmas", their 18th Annual Inn to Inn Holiday Cookie and Candy Tour® held from 11 am to 4 pm each day. Participants will not only tour inns decked in all their holiday finery offering signature holiday cookies and candies, but will also include recipes from each inn and a chance to win a $250 gift certificate for a getaway at the inn of your choice. Cast your vote for the "Best Cookie" and the winner gets $500 for the charity of their choice. Stay at one of the participating inns and you'll also receive the first in a series of collector’s ornaments specially designed by Deneen Pottery for the cookie tour. Chosen by editors of New Hampshire Magazine as “The Best Sugar High”, proceeds from the event will benefit area nonprofit associations.
The tour stretches from Harts Location to Chocorua, NH, with twelve inns opening their doors to those in search of fabulous holiday treats, recipes and decorating ideas. No inn is more than fifteen minutes from the next, with many much closer. Visit all 12 properties to receive a keepsake brass ornament, the ninth in the collection.
