Hi Linda and Dave –

Bill and I had the best time staying with you at the B&B and cross country skiing. Sleeping and eating and skiing all at the same place was so convenient. Being able to get up, eat breakfast, walk through the kitchen to the ski shop, rent our equipment and hit the trails was ideal. Back to the house for some yummy soup or chili and sandwiches for lunch and then right out again into the woods. It’s one stop shopping for a great vacation.

Quote from Allison Tibaldi of amNewYork, January 9, 2019:

"Groomed trails meander alongside brooks and snowy meadows, painting a fairy-tale picture. Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating on the frozen pond present a trifecta of frosty fun."

Quote from Yankee Magazine, September 2014

"I find a home for the night just a few miles east at Canterbury Farm, a comfortable B&B set amid lush display gardens and 22 miles of hiking trails, on a historic property first settled in 1780."
