For over 100 years, The Aloha Foundation has operated renowned summer camps for girls, boys and families on two beautiful lakes in the Connecticut River Valley of Vermont, near Dartmouth College. The Foundation also offers year-round programs of outdoor education and wilderness adventure for young people and adults.
“Even though I’ve lived here all my life, I learn something new about the area every day.” This statement on Kearsarge Magazine’s website sums up the founders’ approach to their quarterly publication, which corrals happenings and news about the Lake Sunapee/Kearsarge area for residents. The summer issue includes an Art & Gallery Guide that highlights local artists, theaters, and galleries.
The team behind Upper Valley Life have lived all over the world, including Syracuse, NY, Grand Junction, Colorado, and Panama. But it’s the Upper Valley—an area along the Connecticut River that comprises both New Hampshire and Vermont—that they call home. Their articles showcase the region’s perks and recreational opportunities, such as attending events at nearby Dartmouth College or soaring in a hot-air balloon above the verdant landscape and its squirrel condominium developments.
Though the views from Inn at Clearwater Pond's back lawn span 7 acres of hillside meadows, they aren’t the best views the inn can offer. For those, climb aboard the onsite hot-air balloon, where you can take in a bird’s-eye view of Quechee Gorge and the peaks of Vermont's mountains. Year-round flights take off directly from the backyard—just one of the many quirky features innkeeper Tina DeLuca uses to distinguish her inn from a typical B & B. Visitors are also charmed by the swimming pond filled with actual drinking water, the country barns that house horses, and the colorful antics of Mr. B the parrot.
A real gentleman's farm, Inn at Clearwater Pond encompasses both a main house with only four rooms and a private guest cottage. Built about 1800, the main house conveys an Old-World charm with brick and stone fireplaces and a wraparound porch. Its rooms come individually decorated with antiques and hand-woven rugs, and some rooms overlook perennial gardens that light up at night with the glow of fireflies and wild turkeys coming up with bright ideas. Though more modern, the cottage showcases plenty of bucolic flair with antique ceiling beams, a claw-foot tub, and a wood stove.
Because of the limited space, Ms. DeLuca can give each visitor more personal attention, starting with a home-cooked breakfast with hot entrees, fresh fruit, and granola. She also keeps the library stocked with board games and playing cards. But the expansive fields and nearby riverside hiking trails also make it easy find quiet solitude in the countryside.
On an airplane, there are windows, roaring engines, and strangers trying to make small talk. But imagine if all that was gone. Imagine if it was just you, the wind, and the miracle of flight. That's the experience afforded by Green Mountain Ballooning, which floats passengers high above Vermont's rolling hillsides, sparkling rivers, and sleepy towns. Some days, when conditions are right, rides soar to thousands of feet in the air. They also dip low enough for passengers to converse with people on the ground, or snag a package from their mailman. Eventually, flights drift back to earth, where a celebratory champagne toast awaits.
