Hello all. Since many of you are familiar with Crotched I thought I'd give you a holler.
The in-laws are doing a family reunion thing based on a "summer" place in Hancock NH that my sister-in law and husband have nearly winterized. There's likely to be overflow over the Oct. 12-14 weekend of +/- 4-6 people. We're looking at options in the area, and since it's about 20 minutes west of Crotched, I thought I'd see if any of you have any ideas of good places for our overflow that wouldn't break the bank. I can promise no pets or tobacco and minimal and discrete swearing and booze.
This is pretty fluid at this point. Any ideas will be appreciated. Feel free to PM me if that's better. Thank you.
I'd recommend staying at the Hancock Inn right in the middle of the village ... it might break the bank, but that depends on how much you like to spend $$ heh. Near by are Jack Daniels in Peterborough, Crotched Mountain Inn and Crotched Mountain Resort (Francestown)

Where ever you stay, I recommend you get a reservation now. Foilage season and college parents weekends fill places up early. I had real trouble last August finding a place in Keene for Columbus Day weekend. Your week should be close to peak color in that area.

Bump. Mrs. Loaf and I just got home from an enjoyable weekend in the Crotched area. We are pleased to recommend the Uplands Inn BnB in Antrim--actually in Antrim Center about 2 mi. north of the village on Rt. 31.
It's an 1842 farmhouse with approprate wavy floors, narrow stairs, and different levels from room to room. Victor and Lynne are extremely accomodating and interesting--my son and family showed up at 6 am, a day earlier than expected at Uplands. Victor was happy to cook a few extra breakfasts and accomodate their needs. My 2-yr-old granddaughter enjoyed playing with the dollhouse in our room. We found out Lynne's grandfather had made it for her. It's nice but not so nice that you worry about where you're putting your feet. They have (I think) 12 rooms. We reserved early so we got the slightly larger rooms in the original farmhouse. Several rooms are in the ell (Doesn't every New England farmhouse have house-ell-shed-barn?) and aren't quite as large but the beds are firm and comfy. There's plenty of room in the downstairs common rooms and the woodstove looked like it would do nicely. And a great breakfast, of course. You share the bathroom but it's a BnB, right? All for $90 double, $75 single.We had a great time, as did my mother-in-law (!) and my son and family. If you're looking for an overnight near Croched, give Victor a call.
