Earlier this summer my husband discovered a spot in the middle of nowhere New Hampshire to unplug, disconnect, and refresh. With everything we have going on I was hesitant to book a reservation, but there was only one weekend left with openings for the summer so we did it. YOU GUYS. I cannot recommend this enough. We went to a place called Getaway House. They have locations outside of Boston, New York, and D.C. and it is worth every single penny.
If you’re not familiar with Getaway House (this is not sponsored by the way, I’m just genuinely in love!), you stay in a small trailer/cabin that has a bed next to a giant window that looks out into the woods, a table and chairs, a stove top, sink, mini fridge, shower, and toilet. There are no mirrors. There is no WiFi. There is no TV. It’s just nature with a bed and a bathroom. Outside there are a couple chairs, a picnic table, and a fire pit. It’s really everything you need. Oh, and did I mention you can bring your dogs?!
I honestly cannot say enough about the weekend. I thought I would miss my phone. I thought I would get bored. We brought so much food and so many games and books because we were so worried about having things to do, but just sitting there soaking it all in was good enough for me. (I did read a ton though.)
I decided to take this opportunity to test out some recipes in a different setting. I ended up making two delicious desserts that weekend and it turns out, you can do quite a bit with just a campfire! So if you find yourself camping in this beautiful fall weather, grab the ingredients below on your way out, and enjoy easy and delicious campfire treats!
