TODAY IS THE DAY!!!

Today was pretty tough as we had to complete the pre-req fitness assessments, which we all passed with flying colours, although I nearly got lost on the 500m swim and swam further then I needed to. That's really all for now. We're about to watch se Netflix before Turning in. The next video should be up by the end of the week. Miss you all Namaste ...

On the east side, there were two trail options for reaching the summit: Lions Head or Tuckerman Ravine. Locals told us there was too much snow on the Tuckerman trail, so the Lion's Head was recommended. Too much snow?! Hell yes!
Hayley, not having seen snow before, was excited (rightfully so) and wanted to taking the 'snow route'. We had not expected to ...

Thankfully, we were equipped for the elements, and slapped on our rain jackets. The huge granite escarpments peppered the tree line of the White Mountains, and made for some amazing photos. Our nearly-panoramic views were incredible from Cathedral Ledge. After some ...
We'll, we aren't in Maine anymore. Today was all about travel. Our plan was to drive a few hours to Skowhegan, Maine, but we were there by lunch time so we just kept going. This evening we are in Gorham, New Hampshire. We are only a few miles from Mt. Washington. No, we aren't going up the mountain. I wish there was time, but we need to be in Burlington, Vermont tomorrow. The first ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Spruce Moose Lodge and Cottages North Conway
Leon and Nellie are absolutely the nicest people we have met.
We recently stayed at the Spruce Moose Lodge and had nothing but a positive experience there. The idea of staying at a Bed & Breakfasts is still fairly new to us however after visiting the Spruce Moose Lodge, we'll actively look for more B&B's in the future. The owners, Nellie and Leon are inviting and lots of fun. With their background in the food industry, they prepare a great, hardy breakfast customized to how you might like it. Each of the rooms are cozy and clean too - even the pet friendly rooms! And if you want more privacy they have a several cabins that can facilitate couples or larger families - great for Family reunions. And as they say, location is everything. Beyond all that the lodge offers inside their location, within a short walking distance to downtown North Conway and it's variety of shops and restaurants, makes the Spruce Moose Lodge and ideal location for any season in New England.
Great Place and Dog Friendly!
My husband, dog and I stayed here for three days so I could enjoy the shopping and my husband and dog could enjoy the fishing. We stayed in a cottage while my friends stayed in the B & B. The new inn keepers where very nice and willing to accomidate your every need. They even walked my dog when we were gone. The cabins were clean and each had a fireplace and air conditioners for the humid mountain nights. We enjoyed wine and snacks with our friends in the B & B at night and sat with all of the other guests. We met alot of interesting people. The inn was about a half mile from the hustle and bustle of town, so it was very quite. We enjoyed a walk into town every night where we could shop and get ice-cream. We look forward to our next stay there.
We have just returned from a weekend stay at The Spruce Moose Lodge and Cottages in North Conway, NH.
We recently stayed at the Spruce Moose lodge on a family trip to North Conway. We choose the location based on a freinds recommendation, and we were not dissapointed. I can only describe the expereince as staying with old friends.
We stayed at the Spruce Moose April 29-May 1, in the Dakota Cottage. It was not at all like the negative reviews we read on this web site.
Cozy Bed & Breakfast, Great Location, Had an AMAZING Time There!!!!
I had the fortune of spending a weekend at this wonderful bed & breakfast. I stayed in one of the cottages with a jacuzzi. The atmosphere of the room was nice. It had a very New Hampshire feel to it. The room was equipped with a decadent fire place (which definately added to the cozy feel of the room). Reading the negative reviews above startled me because my experience was nothing like that. The place was VERY clean. From what I understand, the Spruce Moose Lodge has been taken over by new owners. I spoke to them for a little bit they were EXTREMELY cordial. I will defiantely be returning to this place. Next time I go there, I will be staying in the Governor's Bungalow.
Not For Me!
My family & I recently stayed at the Spruce Moose (Governor's Bungalow) for a Polar Express Weekend Getaway. While the cottage had some nice holiday touches (Christmas tree & lights, hot chocolate & fresh baked cookies) and the owner is very personable, we were disgusted by the lack of cleanliness > moldy, foul smelling bathroom, cobwebs in almost every corner, and filthy food caked on dishes, to name just a few. For $350/night, we have much higher expectations! We will not be returning!!!
Run don't walk away!
We stayed in Governor's Bungelow. It was dirty, full of dog hair on the floor and on the suppposedly clean towels! Yuck They was mold all over the bathroom tub and growing on the ceiling! The cabin was in desperate need of a new floor. The floor had sharp edges and was coming up at every corner of the cabin! You could not turn the water off all the way in the bathroom, due to the disrepair of the faucets. We found cobwebs everywhere! I would never let my kids stay here again! Not cheap either!
This inn is now called the Spruce Moose Lodge & Cottages. My family stayed in one of the cottages. It was neat and orderly. Nothing special, however, they do accept pets. For us, this was one of the reasons we stayed there. We brought our two dogs along and found it very convenient. It is located within walking distance of North Conway Village. But, is off the main road so traffic noise was not an issue.
It appears to be a family run business and everyone was very nice to deal with. Will stay there again.
