Thanksgiving Dinner at the Manor

October 24, 2014

Peak foliage has officially begun to wind down in the lakes region and we are shifting focus to The Holiday Season. This year’s Thanksgiving Feast will be one of epic proportions, featuring a wide array of appetizers, entrees and desserts for the fixed price of only $55 per person.  Why go to the trouble of cooking when there is surely something on the menu to please each member of your party? thanksgiving_dinner_1280x1024

Start your meal off in festive fashion with a rich bowl of sweet potato and vanilla potage, consisting of Crème Fraiche and lemon bourbon syrup.  The confit-style potted pork and winter squash raviolis are both perfect appetizers for sharing, and our creamy mushroom risotto is a house-favorite, made with parmesan cheese and perigord truffle butter.

The entrée selection features options for every preference. If a traditional turkey dinner is what you wish, our classic plate is carved and prepared with sausage dressing, russet potato puree, cranberry relish and green beans with crispy shallots. A seitan “turkey” with meatless gravy will be available as a vegetarian option.  Other entrees include a ‘turducken’ (turkey, duck and chicken in a roulade), a grilled boneless pork chop, smoke-roasted prime rib and lobster-stuffed fillet of Pollock – all with the customary fixings and complimented by our world-renowned wine list and full bar selection.

Everyone knows that no holiday feast is complete without pie, and we’re offering a trio this year – miniature pumpkin, pecan and Dutch apple – served with whipped cream, dark chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream.  Our chef has also put a ‘triple chocolate’ spin on classic bread pudding and added a holiday touch to the sorbet trio with vanilla brown sugar, cranberry sage and mulled cider flavors available.

We are taking Thankgiving decorationsreservations now with seating times available between 3:30 and 5 pm on the half hour. Please note that we will not be accepting Restaurant.Com gift certificates on this occasion. Each dinner comprises one appetizer, a house salad, one entrée and one dessert. Come relax by the fire, gaze out at the lake and mountains and leave the preparation and cleanup to us!

The Farmer’s Almanac is calling for a warmer than average fall season with below average precipitation, which translates into near perfect conditions for enjoying everything New Hampshire has to offer during the upcoming annual burst of foliage.Manor-Exterior (4)

As the days grow shorter and the nights get cooler we undoubtedly find ourselves looking forward to one of the state’s most spectacular seasons. We must admit though, that we are not entirely ready to say goodbye to summer. In fact, the overlap in season provides guests with the opportunity to pick and choose from some of our most lavish deals.

From now through September 25th we continue to offer a 20% discount on any 2 night stay in one of our classic, suite, Jacuzzi or fireplace rooms. On October 13th   the tour boats of the Squam Lake’s  Natural Science Center will officially dock for the season, which leaves ample time to take advantage of a complimentary cruise by reserving one of our popular “On Golden Pond” Packages .If dry land is more to your liking, book a Stay and Play Golf Package and enjoy one round of golf for two people with a cart at Owl’s Nest Resort, as well as two signature messages and a welcoming bottle of champagne in The Manor’s Season’s Spa. Both of these packages also include a picnic lunch, dinner for 2 on one night of your stay, a full country breakfast each morning and afternoon tea.

There are still plenty of warm, sunny days ahead of us before the official fall equinox on September 23rd. The mid-summer masses may have departed, but warm weather activities are still in full swing, making this the ideal time to experience The Lakes Region of New Hampshire.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night

December 24, 2010

Looking out from the glass doors of the The Manor On Golden Pond’s inn library, I see a layer of ice quickly forming on Squam Lake and the White Mountains surrounding it have an eerie cast of white from the winter frost and dustings of snow. The Manor On Golden Pond is festively decorated for the season, white lights twinkling outside as dusk settles in and the inside is warm with the glow of wood-burning fireplaces, lights on the Christmas tree, the soft scent of hot cider and the general quiet of the lakes region of New Hampshire just before Christmas.

 A time for quiet contemplation, we are cognizant of all the challenges in the world and how truly fortunate we are in this amazingly beautiful place near Squam lakes and White Mountains. We are thankful for all we have and the opportunities we are offered. We are truly grateful for our families and friends. From the Manor on Golden Pond, we wish you all a joyous Christmas.

New Year’s Eve at The Manor on Golden Pond

December 17, 2010

As winter settles into New Hampshire, the rhythms and rituals of fall disappear under blankets of snow, shorter daylight hours and a desire to hunker down and find rejuvenation for the ultimate return of spring. The holiday’s rush in with the Northeast wind and the calendar year culminates in the consummate celebration of New Year’s Eve, a tradition that dates back to the Babylonians with their rituals of merriment at the beginning of spring, to them the start of a new year.

Here at the Manor on Golden Pond we have the perfect setting for celebrations, New Year’s Eve being no exception. Wood burning fireplaces, captivating winter views of Squam Lake and the White Mountains, gourmet dining and a quiet romantic ambiance luring couples and close friends to a more intimate experience than found at bigger hotels or restaurants on New Year’s Eve.  If connecting with friends and having conversations rather than shouting matches is to your liking, come New Year’s Eve for dinner and enjoy a 7-course menu and a fine bottle of wine. If your preference is to stay overnight and make it a getaway to New Hampshire, all of our bed & breakfast rates include a full country breakfast and afternoon tea. Our Executive Chef has created a 7-course menu for the evening beginning with his amuse and ending with a luscious dessert. Music from our baby grand piano will croon to you during your feast. What better way to celebrate the passing of one year into the next? We hope you are able to join us.

The Manor on Golden Pond Celebrates Valentine’s Day

February 12, 2010

Valentine’s Day is a special occasion celebrated all over the world. And though Americans have our traditional way of celebration, other countries recognize different customs of showing their love. As The Manor on Golden Pond in Holderness, NH hosts guests from all over the world, it has been interesting to learn about diverse traditions.

In the early 17th Century, many women had superstitions surrounding Valentine’s Day. Some believed if they saw a robin fly over their head they would marry a sailor, if it was a sparrow they would wed a poor man and if luck would have a goldfinch fly above them they would marry a millionaire!

Japanese tradition celebrates Valentine’s Day not just on the 14th of February but the 14th of March as well! On the 14th of February, women present their husband with a gift and on the 14th of March – known as “White Day”, men must return the gift they received in February. Women are thus ensuring their own gift!

In Denmark, folks send candy snowdrops and poems to loved ones and in Finland the day is more about remembering friends than lovers, and is celebrated as “Friendship Day”.

The Taiwanese celebrate the day twice a year –February 14th and also on July 7th of the lunar calendar. Men buy roses for their beloved, and the color and number have great significance. For example, one red rose means “an only love”, eleven means “a favorite”, ninety-nine means “forever” and one hundred and eight means “marry me”.

In Britain, candy, roses, chocolates, cards and other gifts are the tradition. Sonnets and poems have remained somewhat popular over the years. Folklore dictated unmarried women to write their lovers’ names on paper, wrap them in clay and drop into water. Their future husband would be revealed in the first clay ball to surface.

The Manor on Golden Pond invites you to celebrate the amorous month of February with our “Valentine’s Romantic Getaway Weekend”. Pick a weekend in February and enjoy three magical nights in one of our luxury rooms, spa treatments and candlelit dinners including a Chef Tasting 7-course dinner during your stay. You will also go on a private sleigh ride thru Waterville Valley and enjoy various luxuries such as champagne upon arrival and a delectable cheese and fruit tray.

What better place to spend time with a loved one than our beautiful setting in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. At The Manor on Golden Pond, we will strive to make it a most memorable experience. We look forward to seeing you!
