Greetings from the Hoyt Family!


We are enjoying the crisp fall air here at Purity Spring and we are starting to get excited for all that is to come this holiday season! Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. Tis’ the season of giving!

Already starting to plan out your holiday gift list? Stay at Purity Spring this fall and get a head start on your shopping. Our Countdown to Christmas Shopping Package is a great way to save and visit the outlet shopping at North Conway, located just minutes from Purity Spring. From now through December 11, book this great package for only $112, and from December 12 – 17 the rate is just $105! Take advantage of your chance to enjoy all that Purity Spring has to offer and get a head start on Christmas!

If you are planning on making your own gifts this year we have a weekend for that too! Our Sewing Sampler Weekend will be November 13-15, 2015. This sewing weekend will include a variety of workshops with a mix of quick projects and opportunities to learn new skills. In addition to a mystery quilt project, the workshops will teach how to make sleep masks, crazy quilted pillow covers, fabric baskets, and more!

Don’t miss our Purity Spring Thanksgiving Day 5k! On the morning of November 26th, runners will gather at the starting line and set off on the 5k course that races along rolling terrain over the scenic Nordic trails of King Pine and Purity Spring Resort. If running is not your game, we have a fitness walk as well as a kids fun run that will take place on the trails near the running race. Both are open to all ages and abilities so there’s no reason not to join the fun! All race proceeds benefit the Kennett High School XC & Track and Field Programs. Visit https://www.runreg.com/purity-spring-thanksgiving-day-5k to register.

Temperatures here at Purity Spring are continuing to drop – and you know what that means, snow is almost here! Don’t forget to mark your calendars for King Pine’s Opening Day, December 11th! On the first day of the season our trails will be open from noon – 7PM with $20 lift tickets. Join us in the spirit of giving and donate a non-perishable food item. Each skier can donate up to 5 items and receive $1 per item (up to $5 maximum) off your ski ticket! What a great way to start the ski season!

We are looking forward to spending the holiday season with you and your family! With so much to do here, the whole family won’t want to leave!

Brian Hastings to Play CD Release Dinner Concert at the Corner House November 4th

brian-hastings-2015     Long time Corner House performer, and principal of Conway Elementary School, Brian Hastings will perform songs from his newly released CD/Album, titled “Songs From Shaw Country”.  The dinner concert will be held at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich on Wednesday, Nov. 4th beginning at 6 pm!

“Songs from Shaw Country” are original songs about Brian’s experiences raising a family and living life in central and northern New Hampshire!  He currently lives in Tuftonboro with his wife Anika and two of his three children.

“Songs such as “Shaw Country”, “The Circle”, “My Father’s Coat” and “Sweet November” are compositions that I wrote about autumn in this beautiful part of New England,” said Brian.

The anthem, “Turn the TV Off” has been a favorite of local listeners for a number of years.  Montana Stream and Crazy Horse and Joseph are tunes about his travels out west. “Train of Thoughts – don’t let anybody put your fire out” is a tune about living your dreams!

Brian has been a regular performer at Corner House storytelling nights where he has been playing original music and poetry for many years.  Of Irish decent, his music has Irish/folk roots. This album is a mixture of the two, and is described as “Americana” music.

Accompanying Brian on Nov. 4 will be “Sky Road”, a group consisting of area musicians including Mark Dearborn, Peter Heimlich, Daryl Carlson, John Petruzelli and special guests; singers Anika, Emily and Ani Hastings. Brian will have copies of his new CD on hand for purchase at a show discount and will be more than happy to accommodate requests for signed copies.

The evening will start with dinner served at 6 pm and music to commence at 7:30 pm. The meal includes a starter course of Irish Beef Stew, a choice of Roast Stuffed Pork Loin with apple bourbon demi-glace or Cranberry-crusted Haddock, non-alcoholic beverage and chocolate bread pudding with a pumpkin caramel sauce. Vegetarian options are available. The cost of the dinner and concert is $35 per person, plus tax & gratuity.

Don’t miss this fun evening on Wed. Nov. 4 pairing good food and original songs by one of the area’s preeminent entertainers! For more information and reservations contact the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich at 284-6219 or online at info@cornerhouseinn.com.
