      About this trip

      Enjoy the Fall Foliage season on this great tour. We travel through Southwestern NH and Northwestern MA for this fun day out. 

      Our Day INCLUDES: 

      * Guided Tour and Visit to the Cathedral of the Pines - A place of beauty and inspiration, the Cathedral is located in the rolling hills of Southwestern New Hampshire (Rindge, NH) and offers breathtaking vistas of Mount Monadnock. It is an enduring memorial to patriotic service and sacrifice where each of us can personally experience  the presence of the Divine - each in her own way.  Along with the natural and serene beauty of the Cathedral grounds, visitors will find many unique stone shrines, altars and gardens.

      *  Luncheon at the Old Mill Restaurant - The Old Mill, originally a saw mill where logs were processed for the new homes of the neighborhood, the Old Mill and its whirling saw sang a song of progress and industry through five generations of ownership in the same family (the Foster Family), before its wheels were stilled and it fell into disrepair.  Today, the Old Mill is noted for tempting foods served in a setting of rare charm. Voices of diners mingle with the merry music of water rushing gaily over the mill dam as it dances its way to the sea. Thus the Old Mill is reborn - its attractive vistas doubled in splendor by their reflection in the mill pond. It has become a shrine to the epicure for its delicious food... to the art lover for its rustic beauty.

      *  A Visit to Smith’s Country Cheese - A New England tradition producing outstanding cheeses of all kinds, Smith’s is located in a picturesque spot in the hills of Winchendon, MA.  We’ll enjoy a short informational video of the cheese-making process along with a cheese tasting.  There is a retail store and gift shop on the premises.

      * A Visit to Red Apple Farm in Phillipston, MA - This is a farm stand and store full of country goodness and charm.  The Red Apple Farm features fresh baked goods, farm fresh fruits and vegetables and locally made products all in a unique, charming atmosphere.  A wonderful opportunity to bring home unusual and homemade food items.  Everyone will receive a gift of the Red Apple’s delicious Apple Dumplings to take home.  Plus, for those interested, 30 minute hayrides will be available for only $3.00!

      We are we arrive late because bus was an hour and 10 minutes late and the show had already Begun. The other guest who had Arrived on time received lays and headband appropriate to the event. The bus was filthy dirty and many of the seat belts were broken. The food at Foster was good and served well. The blueberry cake was terrible. The band was OK but too loud. I won’t do another best of times event overall unsatisfactory

      The band was good, but WAY TOO LOUD. And that ’s not just me - my iphone vibrated and said that the noise in the room was over 90 decibels and that I shouldn’t stay in the room for more that 30 minutes or I could injure my hearing. My phone told me that twice! Foster’s was a nice venue, but not good acoustics. I would have enjoyed the music much more if it were not at ear splitting levels. The lobster meal was very good. The bus driver was very good, but the bus was not. There was no cup holder or seat back pouch to put water bottles or a book or sweater in. Nothing at all on the seat back, so we had to hold our water bottle in our hands for 3 hours. Also the air conditioning was on but the vents overhead were not adjustable, so we had too cold air blowing on us for the 3 hours up and back.

      Had a great time, food was delicious, staff was friendly and courteous. Band was good. The acoustics were not that good. Hard to understand what words they were singing. Do not know if ceiling to low so just bounced the sound back, or mics were not functioning.
