Day 1: A summer get-a-way to the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire will feature five different train rides along with other special attractions.

This 24-room Georgian Revival mansion features original furnishings, Lincoln family artifacts, gardens and even a 1000-piece pipe organ. There is also a 1903 Pullman Palace Train Car that will allow you to see how the rich and famous traveled at the turn of the century. We spend the next four nights at the lovely Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, Vermont. Tonight, you will be our guests for a delicious dinner at the resort. (D)
