Enjoy the fall air! There are great trails through the mountains and to waterfalls that can be appreciated this time of year, along with the colourful fall foliage. Take in indoor activities: We took the opportunity to swim in the indoor pool and sit in one of the two hot tubs. There was also an ice rink and weights area.

The brochure boasts: "The three bedrooms and two bathrooms of each unit allow you to be a close family while providing plenty of space and privacy for everyone. It's got everything you need on the inside: a fully-equipped kitchen with microwave, two color cable TVs, a VCR, and some units with air conditioning. And it's near everything you want to do outside - like golf, tennis, boating, hiking, and mountain biking in summer, and alpine and Nordic skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, and snowboarding in winter. You also have access to a world of extras all year round - the White Mountain Athletic Club, valley-wide shuttle service, and family fun with the Waterville Valley Recreation Department." ...Read More

Outdoor sports included mountain hikes, soccer, football, mountain biking, and golf. A large group of people from our conference went on either a 3 or 4 hour, easy or moderate, hike through the mountains and past some waterfalls. The air was very cool and crisp--perfect for a fall walk.

Another group played football. There are plenty of sports fields, properly mowed and with goal posts to play sports such as football or soccer. There were also several outdoor exercise areas and children's playgrounds.

Still others played 9-holes of golf (a reservation for the tee time is necessary), and in past years people have rented mountain bikes from the resort.

The recreation center had one large indoor swimming pool (the outdoor one was definitely closed for the winter), with plenty of room for families to splash around, and one lane roped off for people to swim laps. The pool has no deep end, diving board, nor life guard but does have pool toys like kickboards, which are quite entertaining. There were also two hot tubs next to the swimming pool, which were great as well as a small wading pool for toddlers. Towels and keys for the locker were provided at the desk as you enter. There was also a weight room, general purpose exercise room with punching bag, as well as a sauna. The recreation center also offered massages ($35+), sold swimsuits, and ...Read More

Town Square

Story/Tip

The Town Square was a convenient place to look for food and fun during our stay. The condos overlook the square and sit on top of the shops in attractive white wooden buildings. The square itself consists of both souvenoir-type shops, small groceries or convenience stores, and even restaurants. We spent Friday night in the bar, which is very spacious. The bar had a pool table, several booths, many tables, a dance floor, and sports games that were projected onto a large screen on the other side of the dance floor. The only sad part about the bar was, despite being rather undercrowded, the music was so loud it was difficult to carry on a conversation. Otherwise, the bar is a comfortable place to han...Read More
