This year we’ve seen many of the ordinary signs of spring at the Bridges Inn at Whitcomb House: maple trees being tapped for syrup, snowdrop flowers poking through the soil, and crocuses.

Spring has sprung but on Friday, April 12th, Mother Nature seemed a bit confused, dumping freezing rain and snow on the Monadnock Region. The accumulation wasn’t much, but it can be seen amidst the crocuses and near the house (below).

Nine days before, the snowdrop flowers had bloomed (photos taken April 3rd). Snowdrops and maple buckets always bring a smile to my face.

The maple buckets shown below were taken pre-spring (on March 2nd). We were told that it was a good year for maple syrup producers.


Regardless of what Mother Nature is doing, we think you’ll find the Bridges Inn pleasant and comfortable. And you’ll love our breakfasts. We’ll be sure to serve pancakes or waffles with fresh maple syrup if you stay with us.
