Its a little random in places as the week I have been literally so so busy, and only got time to film a couple of things.
Hope everyone back home is well, and I miss you all.
But Im having AN AMAZING time so far, so no homesickness yet.
... swimming, and last but by no means the least went on a trip to Walmart. In the evening Margret (another Irish girl) had arrived, and the Americans at camp insisted that we had our first taste of a s'more. They were life changing. Not sure if for good or bad reasons yet. I'll save a more in depth description if Walmart till the end of week video. So that brings us to today. Myself, Hannah and Margret (who are both going to ...
... at the summit.
The good news is there were shuttles that took you back down the mountain. The bad is that Owen didn't want to pay for this service. This meant we needed to 'find a ride' (a.k.a. hitchhike). Sure enough, Owen found a similar-aged couple from Connecticut willing to drive us to our car. It was great getting to know Jason and Lisa during our 30-minute descent. The views on the way down were of a different side of ...
... we ducked into the pleasant town of North Conway, which is situated right on the southeastern corner of the White Mountains. Lunch at a local cafe - Frontside Grind - was SO tasty. The chicken salad wrap and 'Meal' - a banana, peanut butter, almond, protein-packed smoothie that might as well have been a meal - were delicious! It was at Frontside Grind that we decided to do something big, something bold...tomorrow. Hayley threw out the idea of doing some hiking ...
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 Red Jacket Mountain View Resort North Conway
We stayed at the Red Jacket Inn during the Fall of 2003. Upon check-in we were told that the reservations that we had made ahead of time were at their sister hotel down the street. Finally a manager allowed us to check in. Around 4:30 A.M. we were awakened by a fire alarm sounding.
Red Jacket in December
This was our first trip to New England. We loved the Red Jacket, staff helpful and a memorable holiday - lovely views with the snow and a nice atmosphere. We are coming back again
We stayed 2 nights in the Red Jacket, and it was our favorite of the lodgings we chose on our vacation. It was also the least expensive. The room was spacious and clean, with the amenities we like (fridge and coffee maker). The approach to the hotel is similar to the drive to the summit of Mt. Washington, and hotel looks impressive from the road. The grounds are beautiful, with tons of well-tended, overflowing flower beds. Our room had a little deck, which we did not expect. There are two pools on the property - one outdoor and one indoor. After a long day hiking, the hot tub adjacent to the indoor pool was a nice treat.
Great for Families!
My family of four stayed at the Red Jacket Inn last month for 3 nights.
We absolutely loved the hotel and would stay again. We used the indoor pool, the outdoor pool, the sauna, the jacuzzi, the horseshoes and shuffleboard. We ordered room service for breakfast and went to the dining room for dinner. The staff was incredibly polite and helpful every step of the way. My husband and I thoroughly enoyed our bottle of wine while we sat on our private balcony overlooking the mountains while the children slept. We even let the children enjoy the kids center while we stole away for two hours of couple time in the lounge.
This place was wonderful.
Made our Honeymoon special!!
My husband and I moved our wedding ahead by a year due to a family illness. because of this we had a one night honeymoon!! The Red Jacket was great!! They upgraded us and offered late check out too!! We had a wirlpool tub and had a great experience with it! The staff was very friendly and the housekeepers were awesome!! The bar tenders were nice and they had a live band. The only problem we had was that the food service was somewhat slow. Yet everything else made up for it!
Loved the Mountainview
The Red Jacket Mountainview Resort is a perfect place to stay in North Conway--especially for families. The facility is immaculate--food is great-- service is great---plenty of activities for the children so the parents can have some time to themselves for shopping,dining,etc. It's centrally located, close to the Outlets for shopping, Storyland is about a 10 minute ride.The breakfast buffet here is wonderful as well as the outdoor barbecues!I will definitely be going back.
Return Twice A Year And Always Stay Here
I visit with my family twice a year and would never pick a different hotel. We love the Red Jacket. It's clean and comfortable.
We booked one of the jacuzzi rooms for Mothers Day weekend. We should have known things were not good when my husband repeatedly told the reservation clerk that we were reserving for Saturday and not Friday. When we arrived, we were told that we were listed as "no show's" for Friday. We were then informed that they had no jacuzzi rooms available. They offered us another room for a discounted rate, and then told that "there is a jacuzzi by our pool" (not what we had in mind). When we got to our room, it was very obvious that someone had been smoking in the room just by the smell. There were cigarette burns in the comforter on the bed and numerous burns in the carpet. Our complimentary buffet that was given to us was supposed to be from 7:00 to 12:00. They called us and said that "our" buffet was only from 7:30 to 9:00. For the price we paid, we could have stayed at a much nicer and cleaner hotel. I would not go back there again!
This hotel was GREAT. The first year that my family and I (i'm the youngest in a family of 5) went up to North Conway, New Hampshire, we stayed in one of those really tiny gross motel rooms since we thought we'd be out sight-seeing all day, every day. We were wrong. It was aweful being in this little tiny room. The next year we decided (well, my parents decided) to have us stay at the RedJacket. It was GREAT! It's perfect for people with families, nomatter how many kids you have. We got a loft room, that is a normal room but it also has a loft! It has 2 king-sized beds on the bottom, then you go up some stairs and there's 2 twin-sized beds and a bathroom on the loft! Also, for entertainment, they have the greatest thing. It's like payperveiw, well, I guess it kinda is it but what you do is pick one of 20 movies that are just out of theatres and soon on video (they have a list) and swipe your credit card in a special little thing for it. Then, vuala! You have a movie! The only bad thing about it was that if somebody in any one of the 110 other rooms of the hotel is watching that movie, you can't. And yes, they also have adult movies too. Moving on, the breakfast buffett is THE BEST. I have been to so many diffrent hotels that promise a big huge continental breakfast and end up having this dinky little thing. This breakfast is really good. A waitress seats you and you immediatly get your juice of choice and a full pot of coffee. Then you grab a plate and go up. There's cereal, muffins, eggs, hash browns, ANYTHING AT ALL that you could possibly immagine for breakfast. All perfectly cooked and VERY tastey. Then you can walk over to another table where there is 3-8 chefs making omlets. You go over and tell them exactly what you want in it. You can have anything in it that you want and they make it right infront of you. Then after you're done, no waiting for a check, IT'S PART OF THE ROOM PRICE (only like $10 more I thing) In the hotel there is also a game room, event room, indoor swimming pool, exercisar. There is also something that I know me and my siblings liked a lot when we were younger. It's this thing where every night there's a diffrent children/teen movie playing, and you go into this big room with popcorn and snacks and movie food and watch the movie with a bunch of other kids/teens, with adult supervision of course. Also outside of the hotel is an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, and every Thursday night in the summer there's an all-you-can-eat barbeque by the pool (FREE). There's so many things to do at the Red Jacket it's VERY HARD to list them all but I think I might have. Oh, I almost forgot. There's a daycare program too, for kids ages 2-12. I think I did forget some things if you want any details or information about the Red Jacket or anything in the North Conway-White Mountains area you can write me an E-mail at Kelseymckenzie@attbi.com
Check your statement
The Red Jacket has some beautiful rooms facing the white mountains. The swimming pools are clean. The breakfast buffet was great. However, the front desk service and accounting were inept. When it was time to check out, the staff could not figure out a minor change in the billing, and we ended up having to dispute a charge every month for four months (still to be resolved). Courtesy is not good enough. Competence would be greatly appreciated. I would love to stay here again, but am afraid to because they cannot keep their books straight.
