Pinestead is a Family Outings long-time favorite, a rustic inn/lodge near Franconia, NH. Complimentary XC skiing is available on the Franconia Inn trail system just down the road (rentals available). Sledding, hiking, and general snowy play are available onsite. Cannon Mt. is 15 minutes away and Bretton Woods is about 40 minutes. Visit the horses and chickens on the farm and maybe check out the maple sugaring operation. Enjoy good food and camaraderie for adults and kids alike with "alumni" leaders Valerie and Eddy hosting.

I'm a fan of most outdoor activities especially XC skiing, hiking, cycling, sailing and try to take every opportunity to get out into the wilderness! I led Family Outings trips for years before my son "aged out" but still love hanging out with kids of all ages. Good food is a priority on my trips!
Eddy was chair of the Family Outings group for years and pioneered many favorite trips including Pinestead ski weekends, Worthley Pond vacations and Nickerson camping. His own kids have long since "aged out" but he loves the outdoors and sharing his skills with kids (and adults).
