Whale’s Tale WaterPark in Lincoln, NH is jsut a 30 minute drive from teh family friendly Bartlett Inn Bed and Breakfast in Bartlett Nh near North Conway NH and Storyland in Glen NH the wave pool was excellent.  The atmosphere is great as they have fun music playing and all the kids could not help dancing as they walked around the park.  This park had areas that were great for smaller kids as well as bigger slides to keep the teens happy…I was scared and let’s jsut say I am a bit post teen years!  (29!)  Back to the wave pool..when the waves were crashing on the pool shore it felt like we were at the ocean.  W e had fun riding the waves on the tubes and the kids got drinks with umbrella’s like a real holiday! Entry was $32 and the food in the park was very reasonable.  It is a funny thing..we thought the setting of the park was beautiful with mouain views everwhere you looked. We are looking forward to going back to enjoy this awesome park again!

Sabbaday Falls New Hampshire a Family Friendly Hike near Bartlett Inn NH

Sabbaday Falls NHSabbaday Falls New Hampshire is a Family Friendly Hike near Bartlett Inn NH located 3 miles West of Bear Notch Road on the Kancamangus Highwayy US RTE 112. This is a great hike for youn g and old and handicap and everyone in between as the trail is wood chipped without lots of trippy rocks and large logs across it. There are several benches to rest along the way and for a very little effort these are my favorite Waterfalls in New Hampshire.  They  are just beautiful from the emerald pool at the bottom to the several flumes and drops along the way…raw power and beauty.  Stay at the Bartlett Inn in Bartlett NH as a central place to explore the many stunning WATERFALLS  of New Hampshire and the White Mountains.  Innkeepers are happy to give you advice and directions depending on the difficulty of the hike you would like to do or if you would prefer to just pull over and snap a few pictures.  There are options for all levels of waterfall lovers!

Clark’s Trading Post in Lincoln NH an easy ride from the Family Friendly Bartlett Inn

Clarks NH Bear Cub Weigh In

We packed some drinks and headed to Clark’s Trading Post in Lincoln New Hampshire to see the Bear Show  at 1130AM this Tuesday.  From the Bartlett Inn in Bartlett NH it was approximately a 30 minute drive.  We took Rte 302 and enjoyed the views on the way of Silver Cascade Waterfalls in Crawford Notch, Mount Washington and the Mt Washington Historic Hotel.  We had a blast at Clark’s.  We had parents, a 15 year old and a 6 year old with us.  The Bear Show was awesome .  There were 2 new bear cubs that stole the show.  The large male bear was weighed during the show and we estimated that some of the bears we see passing through the yard at the Bartlett Inn weigh in over the 400 pound mark…yikes!   We had a nice affordable lunch in the park..kid friendly food grilled cheese and hot dogs and fries.  The staff were busy but all very nice!  The water blaster boats are fun and they are not kidding when they say be prepared to get absolutely soaked..especially if your kids turn against you! The train ride is bizarre with the crazy wolfman chasing you but the kids seem to love to hate him!  The Chinese Acrobats…I always find it funny to see something like this in the rural mountains of NH!  We did not try the Segway as the kids were a bit too small but it looked fun and so did the climbing wall.  Very cool in the Wizards lair!  Don’t miss the little museum with the history of Clark’s, they started out with dog sled adventures.  Mrs Clark was pretty amazing and was the first woman summiting Mt Washington  with  a dog sled team. The great thing about this park is that the admission is very cheap reasonable ($18 adults and kids $7 for s5 and under – perspective Story land in Glen NH is $26.99 and Santa’s Village in Jefferson, NH is $per person but under 4 is FREE) and they do not then charge you for every ride and game in the park.  Once you are in you can do it all.  Even on a busy day no wait was very long.  I call Clark’s a weird but wonderful day for the whole family! 

 The drive home we took the Kankamangus Highway US Route 112 and stopped at all the scenic overlooks along the way taking sunset pictures and looking for Moose.  In a little bog on the side of the road we spotted a momma and baby moose but they heard us coming and took off as we pulled up. We turned down Bear Notch Road and enjoyed more scenic pull offs with great views of the Bartlett Village below. Great day out and then we took  at swim in the Bartlett Inn heated swimming pool, perfect ending to the day!
