We exchanged into a one-bedroom one-bath unit. My husband and I were traveling with our 15 year old daughter. The resort was pretty quiet this week and the local attractions were just opening daily signifying the first week of summer. The resort is a week behind the others as the recreation center is only open until 8pm weeknights this week but will open until 10pm the next week. This was disappointing. I would think if the area attractions were on the summer schedule then the resort should be too. This week is considered peak but they are operating as an off week.The pool and hot tub are inside and there are two exercise rooms, one with weights and one with cardio equipment. Yo...Read More

Only three of the buildings are RCI buildings. All are privately owned. From what we were able to tell, the smallest ownership is a quartershare where you own every fourth week. These are the ones you have the ability to deposit with RCI.Our unit was on a lower level where you walked down from the main entry level. This was not good for noise as we had young children running above us all week. We woke up to pounding feet every morning and heard screaming one night. We did have a deck that was on ground level as the building is set on a hill. We looked out to woods and a small stream.Entering the unit, the bedroom and bathroom were in a hall to the right. There is a washer and dryer in a cl...Read More

A sign for lobster dinner for $12.95 caught my daughter’s eye; a small eat in fast food-type seafood restaurant – Seven Seas Seafood Restaurant. We stopped there another night and got wonderful fried seafood for reasonable prices. They have picnic tables outside or you could eat inside. We recommend the lobster, fried clam strips, and fried sea scallops. The $12.95 was for a one pound lobster and twin one pounds were $24.95. Other fried seafood was available in side orders, baskets, or meals. We got meals that night and came back the next night for side orders.

Common Man

Restaurant

Quote:
We ate out at two of the area restaurants. Common Man was our first and was staff recommended. There appear to be a number of Common Man restaurants in NH but they all look like they had different menus.This particular one looked like it was an old house redone into a restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice but we did not have much luck with our food.We would not recommend it. My husband and daughter got their specialties; ribs and prime rib and neither liked them. My daughter’s cut of prime rib was fatty, tough and had a strange taste. We did mention it was not good and they quickly offered to take it off the bill. Service was very good, just expensive for the quality of the food....Read More

Santa's Village

Attraction

We drove up to Santa’s Village so my Santa crazed husband could revisit a child hood attraction.

They have great fudge there. Also be sure to visit the place that sells freshly made ginger bread cookies. You frost them yourself. We went through that twice!

It was not too expensive and although my daughter was bored, we had an OK time. We got our pictures taken on one of the rides and had snow globes made up for Christmas gifts for the grand parents.

All rides allow grown ups on them although they are geared toward kids. Some do have height requirements.

Flume Gorge

Attraction

The link above has a lot of information. We took the hike through Flume Gorge one hot day and it was nice and cool here. The walk has a lot of hills and although we did see someone with a cane walking it, it is not easy. For hikers it would be considered easy though. All fully cleared gravel or wood walkways. Stairs in areas. This was a nice hike for us.

After visiting here we went to Echo Lake which had a small beach. We actually liked the lake back at the resort better and would probably not go to the lake again if we were staying at Deer Park.

Story/Tip

My daughter and I drove over to North Conway to the outlets one day. There is a main center at Settler’s Green and there are various outlet stores along the road. See the link below for Settlers Green for information on stores and events.

We ate a quick dinner at Friendly’s just before the crowds started arriving at 5pm. As we left, we noticed there was a wait.
