Story Land Glen NH Circus is Awesome this year!!

The Circus at Story Land NH is excellent this year, 2011. Not to say it was not good in the prior years but there have a been a few changes that are perfect. Instead of 3 long acts there are now about 7 short acts. The timing is really perfect for the shorter attention span of children (and tired parents for that matter!). Every second is a clap and a thrill and then the next stunning act is on. The kids in the audience love the fact that two of the star performers are children too! The circus tent is the real thing and the costumes and acts are Las Vegas Quality! There is popcorn, cotton candy and drinks for sale.

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!

NH Cross Country Skiing at Bear Notch Ski Touring in BArtlett NH near Attitash and Bretton Woods.

Bartlett Inn NH Bed and Breakfast Snow in Winter

Snow Day Bartlett NH

We enjoyed fantastic conditions Saturday Cross Country Skiing at Bear Notch Ski Touring in Bartlett NH near Attitash and Bretton Woods. We usually do not get out on Saturday as that is the Bartlett Inn Bed and Breakfast busy day but most of the guests were out early enjoying the great snow conditions at all the local Ski Mountains Attitash , Bretton Woods, Cranmore, Black and Wildcat too and Jackson XC Ski Touring .  We made tracks through the trail behind the inn that is ungroomed (except by us).  It was gorgeous 18 inches of powder.  Our neighbor had tamped down some of the trail with his huge snowshoes so it made that section easier going.  In 10 minutes we were passing the brook and then onto Bear Notch groomed trails. Never crowded, we only saw a few other skiers and most of them were the guests staying at The Bartlett Inn.  It was a perfectday, bright blue skies, immaculately groomed trails..both good for track and skate skiing.  The snow bridge across the river on trail 2 to trail 5 is now open so you can do a nice loop up trail 5 and then past the water tower and down 5 and round back to trail 6 to the Bartlett Inn connector.  This week we plan to go out and do the other side of Bear Notch Road.  We will post pictures. Cross Country Skiing or Nordic skiing is a well kept secret.  If you have not tried it and like downhill skiing and hiking then give it a go.  You will love accessing remote areas, rivers and great views during the winter months and the price is about 1/4 of a downhill lift ticket.  $14 bucks on the weekend and we also offer midweek deals with discount and always free passes to Great Glen trails in Pinkham Notch.

Winter Hike to Carter Notch Hut ( 3,290 ft elevation) New Hampshire Success!

19 Mile Loop bridge Carter Notch Jackson NH
Bartlett Innkeeper Nick Crossing a Bridge Carter Notch NH

This is the first post in Bartlett Innkeeper Nicks series Adventures in the White Mountains of NH: Winter.  Share my wilderness experiences as I tell about my hikes in the White Mountains of NH!

 I went on a beautiful winter hike on 27th January with two friends of mine Matt and Greg. We went on the 19 mile loop trail  ( only 7.8 miles round trip) in Carter Notch Jackson NH – the trail head is just above Wildcat Ski Mountain. The trail was in great shape and we didnt need crampons or snow shoes . I Used Crampons on the way down as I was going solo. Met the Hut master Mike who was studying Pine Martens. The views around the hut looking at the Wildcat mountain and on the other side Carter Dome were spectacular. The lake was frozen and the ice was over 3 feet thick so I felt very safe crossing it. There are a few small exposed areas where you will feel the wind and temp drop – apart from that – a very protected trail. To see more pictures and details of our hike go to the Bartlett Inn Facebook page and become a friend .The Bartlett Inn  near Jackson NH is a great base to go out winter hiking.  Greg and Matt stayed at the Bartlett Inn Wednesday night to charge up and then spent Thursday night at the Carter Notch Hut and returned to refuel at the Bartlet Inn and do more day hikes with the Bartlett Inn as their base for Ice Climbs  at Cathedral Ledge, North Conway,  NH and Frankenstein Cliffs Crawford Notch NH.
