- Time to Hike.
It’s off to Mt. Willard which is about a 30 mile drive into the White Mountain National Forest to Crawford Notch. Be sure to dress for hiking with proper footwear and layers. Be prepared. Bring a water bottle and rain gear as weather can change quickly. This hike is 3.2 miles roundtrip and is rated moderate. The trail to the summit of this 2,815 foot spur is mostly closed in by trees and can be fairly steep in spots but the panoramic view of Crawford Notch from the summit is breathtaking and well worth the effort. Watch for peregrine falcons that sometimes nest in the area and the Conway Scenic Railroad’s Notch Train as it crosses Frankenstein Trestle and Willey Brook Bridge.
Relax at the summit, enjoy your view and the box lunch prepared for you by Chef Avi and his team.
- Return to the Manor.
Everyone is on their own to return to the Manor to relax after the hike. The outdoor pool and hot tub will be open.
- Cocktail Party
Have you wondered why Michael’s martinis are so tasty? Join us in the Library Lounge for Michael’s Martini Magic demo and complimentary hors d’oeuvres before dinner.
Everyone will be seated together to enjoy dinner from the menu along with some culinary surprises from Chef Avi.
DAY THREE — Thursday, June 18 –
Breakfast on your own. Today is departure day unless you have chosen to extend your stay to enjoy some other area activities or just relax.
