DUBLIN, New Hampshire (November/December 2011)— Yankee Magazine‘s November/December issue, on newsstands October 25, celebrates the holiday season with inspiring food, home, and gift ideas. From a Thanksgiving menu created by an acclaimed Boston chef, to the “story-book” home owned by author of the beloved children’s book, The Polar Express, plus craft fairs and made in New England wares, the holiday issue abounds with a festive New England style. And for a classic approach to the season, escape to another era while vacationing at a historic inn; Yankee traveled many hundreds of miles to determine the region’s ten best places to stay that evoke the 18th century but are cushioned in contemporary comforts.
