Also a bed and breakfast, this is a great place year round to go on a sleigh ride, have a riding lesson or take a trail ride. It is a very short drive from the Village of North Conway. April is not prime tourist season, so the two of us had a private trail ride with our guide Nancy, who had been working at the farm for years. She knew each horse by name, personality and history and as she said is very much a horse person. The horse she rode had been easily spooked when he first arrived at the farm, so she had put bells on his saddle to scare away the trail goblins and trolls. It made for a delightful sound as we rode lazily through the woods and pastures. Our trail took us along the Saco...Read More

Horsefeathers

Restaurant | "Horsefeathers-Right in the Middle of Town"

Right in the center of town, Horsefeathers is a great place for a meal. There is lots of space on two floors, however if you are seated on the main level be sure to have a sweater as each time the door opens to admit new diners, cold wind blows in as well. Flyers advertised entertainment at times, however we were visiting during low season and there was no entertainment, which suited us just fine.

We both chose the salmon with a tomato bruschetta topping, a flavoured rice, and green beans almandine. It was all well-prepared and delicious.

In an old house just north of North Conway Village, the restaurant is a maze of rooms. Although the parking lot was full of cars, we did not have to wait for a table. The menu is extensive and includes sushi as well as a complete selection of meats, seafood, pasta, sandwiches, salads, soups, burgers. At our hotel we had seen a flyer indicating a special deal for $35: two can dine with a bottle of wine. With our menu and wine list, the double sided single addition listed the selections available for this special deal. The special was available from Sunday to Thursday in April. We were presented with a menu, a wine list and a single page double sided menu which had wines on one side and a selection of ...Read More

Decades Steakhouse

Restaurant | "Two Can Dine for $22!"

Quote:
Decades is just off the main street in the village of North Conway and on Tuesday there was a two for $22 special. Choices included pasta, chicken, shrimp, fish and two kinds of beef. The bistro beef I chose came with a side of buttered baby carrots and a demi-salad with a choice of dressing. My beef tenderloin was cold, but when it came back warmed, it was moist and flavourful. The Delmonico steak which my friend had was a fatty rib-eye steak with the same sides. The basic crème brule we had for dessert was just the right size. Service was prompt and friendly. Michael Jackson dolls, Howdy Doody puppets, a full size motorcycle and many other "pieces" prompted inquiries of the staff who tried their be...Read More

The Eastern Slope Inn is a large building at the Northern End of North Conway, but within walking distance of many of the attractions and amenities. The inn itself has a large number of rooms, and there are quite a few buildings close to the Inn, which also have accommodations under the Eastern Slope Inn management. We were assigned a two room suite in one these buildings behind the Inn. One room had the kitchen area with microwave, fridge, table, sink and hot plate as well as bathroom with shower, and a double hideabed. This room had a screened porch as well as its own door to the outside. This room had a connecting door to another room, which had a Murphy bed and yet another hideabed. It...Read More
