Aussie needs help!

My wife and I will be travelling to New York in late September and spending a week in Mnhattan before heading up to New England. We plan to catch a train to New Haven CT, hire a car and then just cruise though New England for 2 weeks before heading back to Manhattan for another week. However, I am beginning to realise that the Fall in New England is a very busy time with accomodation at a premium in some areas. So, I would really welcome some help in setting up an intinerary so I can start booking inns and B&Bs, our preferred type of accomodation.

From New Haven we intended hugging the coast up into Capoe Cod and after that, who knows? We love small coastal towns, similar inland etc.

If anyone can come up with ideas on great places to go for our 2 weeks I would really welcome some assistance.

Thank you,

Spudee

Check out the posts for baggo55 earlier in February. We essentially just did the same thing there. If that does not help, there are many who will try to guide you.

Many who live in New Hamsphire will be happy to help. For picturesque villages and scenery you can't beat the southwest corner of New Hampshire. Close to Vermont, Mass and Ct you will find beautiful scenery, good restaurants, theater, hiking, meandering, nice B and Bs. It's a great base to make day trips from.

Look at Weirs Beach NH Channel Cabins. Jose and Stacey have a great place on the water and it is very clean, not fancy but they are friendly and delightful.

Well Sept can have some really nice warm days and Cape Cod is "not" busy at that time of the year and rates are cheap. The Cape is the last to see the leaves change in New England (mid to late Oct). This is my favorite time of the year to go there. You may also like to see Newport, RI great time of the year also. Make sure you go to Beavertail State Park on Jamestown Island next to Newport you will not be dissappointed.

Enjoy

Hi Beelebug,

Thanks for the information, particularly that relating to accommodation; that sets our minds at ease. We had chalked in Newport, RI as our first overnight stop and will see if we have time for the other places you have kindly suggested. Once again, many thanks.
