Family Memorial Day Mountain Laurel Weekend at AMC Noble View, Russell, MA

Trip dates: Friday, May 26, 2017 4:00 PM to Monday, May 29, 2017 12:00 PM

There's a trail called Laurel Lane and, no wonder... Mountain Laurels are abundant this time of year! Noble View is a wonderful place for hiking easier trails with your family members, and taking in the picturesque beauty of the Pioneer Valley. Come explore the great outdoors at Noble View!

The Double Cottage is rustic because there is no running water or toilets in the cabin! Instead, the Bath House is just a short walk away where you're welcomed by the running water for washing dishes & brushing teeth, composting toilets and hot showers in a solar heated building.
The Double Cottage offers twin bed accommodations in varying room configurations to accommodate family style sleeping arrangements. Some kids may be on air mattresses, on the floor, to keep families together.
There are 2 kitchen area's for communal meal prep. Each area has a 6-burner stove & oven, prepping area and large refrigerator. No microwave or freezer. Young & old will have the opportunity to participate in the tasks of meal prep and clean-up throughout the weekend. Picnic tables on the front covered porch offer a place to take in the seasonal breezes, while enjoying the view into the Pioneer Valley.
The hiking and exploring on these well marked trails offer opportunities for any age or experience level. Whether this is your first time hiking with your kids, or you're looking for a relaxed, yet fun and active get away... this is the weekend for you! Registrar/Leader: Margo Chapski,
