Oh me, I have a suggestion! The white mountains in NH have some great innThere me is skiing nearby and it is very Chritmasy! if you choose Maine keep in mind that the coast gets more rainy wet snow so it might not have that fluffy white that you are thinking of and a lot of places on the coast close for winter. That being said, Portland ME and Portsmouth, NH are lovely as well. I’ve lived in both places and I grew up in central NH not too far from the Whites. Oh and there is a place in Whitedfield, NH called the mountain view grand that I have been to in the summer and loved. That would be a good choice if you just want the resort because there isn’t much around. But they do sleigh rides and snow shoeing and snow mobiling. Vermont I would recommend the Von trapp family lodge (the family from the Sound of music) or the Burlington area. That should get you started nbbut feel free to PM me with questions!

Oops sorry I missed that you weren’t into skiing 😉 and please forgive the typos, my iPad and weddingbee don’t play nicely together!

@DoctorBride:  Maine is beautiful and during the non-tourist season a lot of the places have very deep discounts for staying.  However, a lot of places there are also seasonal and are completely closed until spring, so it depends on where you are looking at.

Also, have you looked at upstate New Hampshire?  I briefly drove through White Mountain National Forest during the fall to see the leaves changing and the landscape is absolutely stunning.  There are a lot of small towns that are really nice stops to get away.

My two favorite places to visit in Maine are Belfast (not as trendy and love as Camden, but it’s got character) on the coast and Rangeley further inland by Rangeley Lake.

Just…. it’s very hilly and I’m from flat coastal Texas so driving in snow, ice, and on steep inclines scares me.

@LittleCricket:  lol I am from New England and flat open spaces make me feel exposed and uncomfortable and i am terrified of tornados! Funny how we get so used to our home landscapes  and their quirks.

@impatientlywaiting20:  Haha!  You’d probably freak with how often I have been under tornado warning/watches and completely disregarded them because it’s all “oh, that’s a couple miles away and it’s fine here.”  But yeah, I get what you mean! 😀

@LittleCricket:  I would probably spend half my life hiding in the basement if I lived in Texas! By the way I am so glad you enjoyed my home state, I think that the White Mountains are a little slice of heaven on earth! I will be making my first visit to Texas in December, SO is from Dallas/Fort Worth. Can’t wait to see Texas!!
