Wildcat Mountain

Attraction | "Wildcat Mountain-Ride the Zipline and More!"

Wildcat Mountain Photo, Jackson, New Hampshire
Quote:
Although the White Mountains are a well-known ski destination, there is plenty to do in the summer. There was a host of activities at Wildcat Mountain. At the base lodge, one could purchase a variety of activity and/or food packages. We purchased a food/gondola ride package (about $22 each depending on food selection) and payed separately for the zipline ($20 each for one ride—the more you rode, the cheaper each ride.) We rode the Gondola Skyride to the top of the mountain and from the peak, we could see for miles. Some families had taken their food up to eat at the picnic tables scattered on the flat areas at the top of the mountain. The Appalachian Trail cut right through the top of the mountain, s...Read More

Bethel Inn Main Dining Room

Restaurant | "Good Food, But Dining Room Needs Attention!"

The Main Dining Room at the Resort attracts diners from the resort as well as from the communities surrounding it. Our neighbour had called it five star dining-I would not give it that-the tablecloth was stained and the table underneath was in very poor condition. The windows were streaked and there were spider webs visible. The rug needed vacuuming and the dishes and glasses were spotted.A twenty-nine dollar per person special was the attraction for us the evening we chose to visit. This included a bottle of wine to share—only after seeing another couple leaving with the remains of their bottle did we realize we were not obligated to drink the whole bottle with our meal. Once ...Read More

The Lake House

Story/Tip

The Lake House Photo, Bethel, Maine
Quote:
The Lake House offers swimming, canoing and kayaking in a shady, secluded area three miles south of the Bethel Inn on Route 5. The house itself sits right at the edge of the road adjacent to a small parking lot. Steps lead down to the lake and a small dock. A rack at the side has two single kayaks, one double and several canoes. There is a diving/sunning platform about 30 feet from shore.

Life jackets and washrooms are located inside the Lake House. Ask at the main desk of the Resort for the lock combination. An expansive deck overlooking the lake is an ideal spot to have a picnic or relax after enjoying water activities.

Ferry Beach State Park Photo, Bethel, Maine
Quote:
Being this close to the ocean, we were desperate to put our toes into the cold Atlantic Water, so we reserved one day to drive to the beach. It took us about an hour driving along scenic small secondary roads to find the commercial area of the Old Orchard Beach area, celebrating 125 years of family vacations this year.For those wishing to enjoy the wide sandy beaches and gentle waves of Old Orchard Beach without also having to endure the commercialism of the heavily advertised products of the boardwalk, Ferry Beach State Park is an oasis of serenity just a few miles north of the area’s centre. As it is reached by turning away from the shore for its entrance, one is deceived into thinking t...Read More
