The Glory of autumn—8 Reasons Why We Love Fall—Part II

The last time we posted, we had begun a discussion about why we think fall is one of the best times of the year on the East Coast. Today we will discuss four more reasons why we feel this way, especially of our home state of New Hampshire.

Four More Reasons Why We Love Autumn in New Hampshire

We’ve already told you about New Hampshire’s gorgeous autumn colors and crisp fall air. Here are four more reasons why you should take a trip to North Conway, NH this season.



1. Fall is the Perfect Time to Stay In and Snuggle. Like we said, we love the crisp fall air, but part of what we love about it is leaving it outside. After a lovely hike through the New Hampshire countryside, we admit it gets a bit chilly. There is nothing better than coming in out of the cold, snuggling up in some pajamas and a blanket with your significant other. Staying in and snuggling allows us the time to talk, enjoy a great movie or do the Sunday crossword puzzle. Really, is there anything better?


2. It’s Harvest Season. Autumn in New Hampshire means its apple and pumpkin season. To celebrate, there are many harvest festivals. Get a taste of the local harvest with homemade ciders and pies. These festivals are a great way to get to know the locals and enjoy the abundance of the New Hampshire harvest.


3. There’s nothing Like the Smell. No one is quite sure why the smell in the air is better during the autumn. It could be the wet leaves, the smoke from the chimneys or the crispness of cooler weather systems. Or, it could be a combination. Whatever the case, we thoroughly enjoy going outside during any time of day and taking in a deep, glorious breath of fresh air. We know you’ll enjoy it too.


4. A Good Excuse for Everyone to Enjoy Hot Chocolate. It doesn’t matter what age you are, everyone should be able to enjoy hot chocolate. For some reason, though, most people think hot chocolate is just for kids. We disagree wholeheartedly. During the fall and winter seasons, we think everyone should enjoy a nice hot cup of chocolate. Of course, it’s even better with whipped cream or marshmallows…or perhaps something like Irish cream, Crème de menthe or Kahlua. Yum!


Let the Bernerhoff Inn Become Part of Your Fall Traditions

The reasons why we love the fall are numerous, and we know the reasons vary from person to person. Some people may be a little upset that we didn’t add the fact that certain famous coffee chains offer their seasonal favorites starting in the autumn, like pumpkin scones and Spiced Pumpkin lattes. Whatever your reasons for loving the autumn months, we want you to know we feel the same way about this season. That’s why we would love for you to come and visit us this fall. We would love to be a part of your autumn tradition and hope to see you soon!
