Planning Your February 2017 Get-Away

Looking for a get-away in February?

As we mentioned in the January Get-Away blog posting…its still winter so you can still get outside and enjoy the great outdoors.  Check out the free guided hikes and x-country skiing the awesome Harris Center leads on the events list below).

A special for the winter…stay with us, bring your skis (downhill or x-country) and save $10 per night off our standard rate.

Fun Winter Hiking!

If music, theater and exhibitions sound good to you, Harlow’s Pub has Celtic music every Tuesday, Open Mic on Wednesdays and a variety of hip artists rotating through on the weekends (see the listings below).  Peterborough Players offers its “Arts on Screen – Live in HD” series while the Folk Music Society and Bass Hall will host more great concerts.

There’s also a new exhibit opening at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture.  Check out “Hooked: the History of Fishing in the Monadnock Region.

Peterborough also has a wonderful 100 seat intimate and cozy movie theater that shows first run movies.  There’s just one screen so check the listing but it is a great alternative to the mega multiplexes of today!

If your preference is to just get away and do nothing.  Little River B&B offers rooms with cozy gas stove fireplaces and several common rooms for curling up with a good book.  Downtown has fabulous dining options and the pedestrian friendly shopping district is filled with unique independent shops.
