Stonehurst Manor

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant

Quote:
We go to the White Mountains for one week every year and regularly eat dinner at the Stonehurst Manor every Thursday night. We have yet to be disappointed, even after building up the memory of our previous meal for a year. "Why Thursday night?" I heard someone ask. Because that is the night you get two incredible Manor Specialties for the price of one. The last time we ate there, in August, I had a lamb shank dinner, and my wife had their venison dinner, all for $22. That is hard to beat and, when you consider the quality of the food and the service, is a must-not-miss dining experience. We always make reservations, because the evening is quite popular (as you can imagine). Howe...Read More

The golf course in North Conway is beside the railway station in the centre of the town. The course was in excellent condition in early September, and the green fees, including a cart, were reduced to $30. From a raised tee down to the number-one fairway, you have an incredible view of the White Mountains. But watch for hitting shunting trains on your backswing. From the first tee, you head down to the river valley on a fairly flat course. It is hard to lose balls on this course, as the rough is fairly clean and not overgrown. I lost a ball in the leaves on one of my drives, and as we came back the other way about four holes later, my wife saw the ball from a new vantage point. The greens are a good ...Read More

Hales of North Conway

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction

Quote:
The Hales is located in the White Mountains and is an absolutely beautiful course to play. You will probably want to use a cart, which is included in the price, unless you are in good condition. Each hole presents a postcard view, so, on the tee, give yourself extra warm-up time to enjoy the scenery. The fairways wind their way through a housing development, so the golfer is responsible for any damage, but the risk is worth the experience. From North Conway, find Old West Road, which is accessed by taking the left turn at the stoplights by the most northern church in town. After crossing the bridge, turn left onto Old West Road and watch for the entrance to the community and golf club on t...Read More

When my wife said she wanted to get a timeshare week in North Conway NH, I was just a little concerned. She’s an inveterate shopper and pretty persnickety when it comes to buying, so I envisaged a horror week of shopping, shopping, shopping. To help me out, she promised only to shop for three days of the full week we planed to be away. I was working in Washington so we drove up to New Hampshire on the Friday. Now, there is an adventure, to drive the eastern seaboard, via New York City, on a Friday. It wasn't until we were deep into New Hampshire that traffic cooled a little. We arrived at our timeshare accommodation in the White Mountains and the spectacular autumn colours quickly made...Read More

The Pumpkin People of Jackson

Best Of IgoUgo

Story/Tip

Quote:
One of the great walks when we go to New Hampshire is the route around Jackson. Every Thanksgiving week (for you Canadians out there) and every Columbus Day week (for you Americans out there), Jackson and the surrounding areas participate in the Pumpkin People festival. The local merchants and citizens decorate pumpkins in creative ways (some of them building tableaus of Pumpkin People families), and there are groups engaged in all sorts of activities. The walk around the whole town takes about 30 minutes, taking you past the Wentworth Golf Club with its beautiful covered bridge, past colourful river banks, and past long tree-lined streets (or should I say street?). All in all, it is a great ...Read More
