The Country Inns in the White Mountains have made the difficult decision to cancel the 24th Annual Inn to Inn Cookie and Candy Tour, originally scheduled for December 12-13, 2020. Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of guests and the association’s innkeepers and staffs, it became clear that the event might attract a crowd that would exceed safety limits determined by the state and the association members. After all the Mt Washington Valley community has done to keep the region safe, the members of the Country Inns in the White Mountains felt their shared dedication to the safety of their guests and residents of the region would dictate cancelling the cookie tour for 2020. The group plans to hold the event on the second weekend in December in 2021, and build on the success of its 23-year legacy.
Mark the calendar for December 11 and 12, 2021 for the 24th Inn to Inn Cookie Tour. Tickets will go on sale through packages at each inn early in the year.
