Thank you to all those who have emailed and phoned to check on us after Hurricane Irene. Your heartfelt concern means so much to us. We are pleased to report that Rabbit Hill Inn was very fortunate. Despite the fact that the eye of the storm passed directly over us, we sustained no damage at all. Thankfully, the lights never even blinked. And all roads leading to Rabbit Hill Inn are fine. We were able to provide full service to 17 guests through the entire storm. They ate well, played games, and tackled several Stave puzzles. And the Snooty Fox Pub was a popular spot too!
Stores in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and Northern New Hampshire are open as are area activities. Kingdom Trails, Franconia Notch State Park, Cannon Mountain Tramway, and Alpine Adventures Zip Line Tours are open. Cabot Cheese factory and Ben & Jerry’s are ready for you. The good news is, there is much to enjoy here. Without doubt, the waterfalls must be amazing now!
Many news reports give the impression that all of Vermont is devastated. Yes, there are a few areas that are heavily affected and damaged severely (mostly south of here). However, much of the state is still passable and operating as usual. Those that were affected are bouncing back at impressive speed (Vermont ingenuity is truly amazing). All major highways are open. Sure, some local roads and bridges are closed, but there are others ways to get around.
