Cut Your Own Christmas Tree for $5 bucks in New Hampshire!

ChristmasTree Bartlett Inn NH

Fir Balsam Christmas Tree Cut your own Tree Bartlett Inn NH

That is correct.  You can cut your own Christmas Tree for $5 bucks in the White Mountain National Forest  of New Hampshire!  The Bartlett Inn has a tradition of cutting our own Christmas Tree each holiday season.  Usually we find a nice tree on our own property but this year we just could not find one that had a good shape so Innkeeper Nick and his family went to the Ranger Station on the Kancamagus Highway in Conway, NH and paid just $5 to cut our own tree.  This is a great deal on Christmas trees that can cost from $20 – $120 dollars. The Bartlett Inn prefers to cut a less traditional tree: It goes by many a name; Charlie Brown Tree, Stick Tree, Pencil Tree or the real name Fir Balsam.  It is fragrant and grows with larger spaces between branches than trees grown on a tree farm.  It is not as full and bushy as a farm grown tree but it has benefits as the space between branches allows ornaments to be seen and dangle freely and it has an open airy feel.  We made a point to make and buy very light ornaments as the branches are not very thick or stiff.

Start a new family tradition, come to stay at the Bartlett Inn in New Hampshire and cut your own Christmas Tree.  Bring your own twine to tie the tree down on the car and rules for cutting are that you can use hand tools only..no chain saws so bring your own little saw and have fun!  We did.  For more information on staying in NEW Hampshire and cutting your own Christmas tree call 1 800 292 2353.

Mt Washington Auto Road New Hampshire

Mt Washington Views NH

Mt Washington Views with Bartlett Innkeepers in NH Foliage NH

What better than a sunny September day to take The Bartlett Inn’s Summer Employee (Ozgur from Turkey!) on a sight seeing day and where better than for a ride up the Mt Washington Auto Road in Pinkham Notch NH.  We like the sign that says not a good road to drive if you have a fear of heights at the beginning of the road!  A little frightened we put the truck into 1st gear and went for it!  What can we say…spectacular views at every turn and the top too! We enjoyed lunch at the canteen and the museum in the bottom of the observatory.  One perk of driving up is that you are not limited by the time of the returning coach or cog train.  There are many hikes that can be done from the top too!  On teh way back to the Bartlett Inn there is nice short hike to Glen Ellis Falls off Route 16 .

Hiking Mt Tremont in New Hampshire’s Crawford Notch

Stony Brook Waterfalls Mt Tremont Trail

Stony Brook Waterfalls Mt Tremont Trail NHBartlett Innkeeper on Mt Tremont NH Summit

Mt Tremont Trail can be accessed approximately 2 miles east of the Bartlet Inn Bed and Breakfast on US Route 302.  Mt Tremont is 3371 Feet.  My husband Nick, innkeeper and avid hiker, and I – not so avid hiker, did this hike in about 3.25 hours.  I was nervous about so much altitude but found this a great hike.  It was very difficult in that the trail is very rocky, uneven and strewn with tree roots.  Put that on a incline and it does make for a slippery climb with challenging footing.  Saying that, I love that the first third of the hike as the trail travels along Stony Brook which has endless beautiful waterfall cascades and clear pools and river running over sheets of granite;  Just beautiful and a great distraction.  The second 2/3 of the trail are relatively steep but the foliage was beautiful and there were sections of the trail that were red and then yellow. Towards the last third of the climb you pass through a section of trail with trees and exposed roots that makes you feel like you are traveling through a hobbit colony!  One can get glimpses of Mt Washington  and Crawford Notch and I imagine as the foliage drops from the trees the views grow en route.  From the top the views are spectacular looking down at Sawyer Ponds below as well as Greens Cliff and Bear Notch Road and the Kancamagus Highway.  The footing down was pretty hard on the feet.  We found the hiking poles a great help on the descent giving us stability climbing down the steep slippery rocky trail.  This was a great hike if you enjoy beautiful New Hampshire waterfalls and incredible views and do not mind a challenging trail.  For anyone just interested in waterfalls you could do the first section of the trail only and really have a nice easier hike!  Any questions call The Bartlett Inn who offer trail advice to all their guests.  We help you find the best hike for what challenge you are up for and interests you have. Call  800 292 2353 For More Pictures of our hikes check out our Face book posts. Hiked 9/21/11

Ride the Wildcat Gondola to the top of Wildcat Ski NH Mountain and stay at the Bartlett Inn hotel close to North Conway NH.  The views are as spectacular in summer as they are in winter.  We even saw a large bull moose on the Gondola ride laying just under the!  At the top there are several hikes short or long you can do and they give you access to even more views!  WE made it tot the very summit of Wildcat where there is a lookout platform…spectacular looking into Tuckerman Ravine and Huntington Ravine on Mt Washington NH across Pinkham Notch.

The Wildcat zip line is quite long and a real thrill!  The only drawback is that you have to weigh about 70 lbs to ride and so our 7 year old was not able to try it.  Maybe next year!  Stay at the Bartlett Inn Bed and Breakfast and Cottages and then enjoy a beautiful scenic short drive to Wildcat.  The innkeeper will give you some tips for hikes along the way and you can even get lunch at the mountain!  Call 1 800 292 2353.

Hampton Inn Hotel North Conway Waterpark Slides

Did you know that there are  two Indoor Water Parks in North Conway New Hampshire? One is the Hampton Inn Indoor Water Park in North Conway NH and the other is the Kahuna Laguna Indoor Water Park at the Mountain View Resort in North Conway.
We enjoyed a visit to the Hampton Inn Indoor water-park with a group of kids who helped with Cleaning up North Conway and the surrounding area during Valley Pride Day. The staff was friendly and the lifeguards did a good job keeping order.  There was one kiddie pool with a raining tree and a slide and then 2 large slides, about 20 feet high that end in a 36 inch deep pool.  There was no actual large swimming pool so this is a fun place for the kiddie pool or the slides.  Entry fee is $15 per non guest for a 2 hour session which is more than enough time.  Our next trip will be to check out Kahuna Laguna!  We did go to Whales Tale Outdoor Water park in Lincoln over the summer and that was terrific…best on a very hot day…Santa’s Village also has a great new Water Park and again best on a hot day! Attitash NH has several outdoor water slides in the summer too with a kiddie splash pool. Come stay at the Bartlett Inn located near all the Water parks in North Conway NH!  We have a heated swimming pool and kids play area too!  Call Bartlett Inn for lodging near waterparks 1 603 374 2353.  Your stay at the Bartlett Inn includes personal concierge service including advice on hiking, Storyland, skiing, Waterparks, river tubing, moose and wildlife viewing and sightseeing!
