Inside Hotel Marlowe’s “Over the Top” Leaf Peeping Experience

New England is one of the prettiest places in the country during the fall season. Each year, visitors from around the world travel here for a glimpse of the beautiful evolving foliage. This colorful season, you won’t have to travel very far to see the leaves change from green to gold as the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge has created the ultimate “Over the Top” luxe leaf peeping experience.

The luxury experience starts off at the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge and takes you to the Taconic Hotel in Manchester, Vermont. The package will literally take you over the top of the colorful trees in a scenic helicopter ride from Boston to Manchester during peak fall foliage season. If you are looking for a haute New England escape, this is it.
