Rain is not a setback at this historic property overlooking mountains, Lake Winnipesaukee

At Castle in the Clouds, a 5,500-acre property with panoramic views of mountains and Lake Winnipesaukee and beyond, rain is not really an obstacle. You can still take a trolley up the same road Thomas and Olive Plant traveled in the early 1900s to Lucknow Mansion, their elegant Arts & Crafts-style home. You can still admire the views from inside the “castle,” built in 1914 and featuring electrical appliances like central vacuuming systems that were ahead of their time. You can check out the clothes in Olive Plant’s closet, and get a glimpse of servant life in the guided basement tour. And if the rain is light, you might still go for a short stroll or let the kids feed the trout in Shannon Pond.

Too rainy to pick apples? Visit this cider studio to enjoy them another way

You might not be able to go apple picking in the rain, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy apples. Stop by the Rhythm Studio at the Atrium Wine Bar in the Lincoln Village Shops for a taste of what Rhythm Handcrafted Beverages has to offer. Pull up a chair to a barrel table in the light-filled cider studio and choose from a variety of crisp, refreshing ciders, all fermented naturally from locally sourced fruits. Choose the original hard apple cider, or ask for something different, like the blueberry hard apple cider, heirloom apple cider, hard blood orange cider or hard lemon-lime cider. There’s no extra flavoring in any of them, and label art features the work of local artists.
