Because she experienced the daunting feeling of wanting to "do it all" in New England without knowing where to start, author Eleanor Berman compiled this useful guide to help narrow down the choices.

"The selections are admittedly personal, limited to locations and events I have visited and enjoyed...I've tried instead to pick only the best--places I've either been to myself or had recommended to me by local sources or frequent visitors." 


"Best Places to Stay in New England is the guide to look to for accurate discerning reviews of distinctive accommodations in all price ranges..."
