The Appalachian Mountain Club is offering some discounts on visits to its rustic lodging in New Hampshire and Maine this summer.
Some of the deals involve lodges that visitors can drive up to and others are for “huts” that require a hike in. Backpackers may travel between huts and lodges and combine their stays for a discount.
One package provides a fifth night of lodging free and another offers a discount of 10 percent for three nights or more. Saturdays are excluded. Rates and taxes vary a bit from place to place, but the bottom line is about $350 per adult for a five-night stay, which includes breakfast and dinner daily. There is a significant discount for children under 12.
