Over the river and through the woods, over the border, and over the hills of Southern New Hampshire my mother, sister, and & I went to…
“Since 1786 our quaint little red cottage has graced the hills of southern New Hampshire, seemingly untouched by time. This enchanting cottage was chosen by Elizabeth Orton Jones as the model for her illustrations in Little Red Riding Hood Little Golden Books, 1948.”
An excerpt from their website.
We had 5-course delectable gourmet luncheon complimented with savory herbs and edible flowers grown and harvested from their very own culinary garden.
I spied groups of women, mothers & daughters, grandmothers & granddaughters all nestled in, having lunch in the little red riding hood house.
I can see why Elizabeth was inspired by this quaint cottage. If I use my imagination, I can see the big bad wolf peering around this massive tree!
Okay…it really is all about the food!!

We took a peaceful stroll through the beautiful gardens after lunch.
I highly recommend having lunch in this very enchanting place!
