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.
Hi all Just brief update of my time at camp Micah, so far. So after arriving at camp on Monday morning? After a epic couple of days of travel, I was picked up by one of the camp drivers who was called bob. BOB IS A LEGEND!!!! So I arrived just before lunch and quickly was introduced to a load of new people who are all so so nice, and made me feel very much at home. I was assigned a bunk to live in until the end of staff week and ...
... on this trip, given it is spring and moving into summer. In fact, today was the first day of summer.
We were also informed that the Tuckerman Ravine trail is highly dangerous (because of the snow), particularly if you are unfamiliar with the terrain. Weighing up the want to see snow versus the desire to live, we decided to take the Lion's Head trail. Hakuna mutata!
The distance itself was only 4.5mi/7.2km; it was the ...
... 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 ...
... noticed as we drove in to downtown Gorham was the railroad museum. Unfortunately it was closed by the time we got here. The rail line here is ex Grand Trunk. Now it's a G & W property, the St. Lawrence and Atlantic RR. I was told that trains run sporadically. I wish there was more to say, but after a full day of driving I'm tired and ready to just veg out for a bit. Until tomorrow, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Stonehurst Manor North Conway
Love the Manor
My husband and I have been staying at the Stonehurst Manor for 7 years now. You can't ask for a better deal. The staff are always very friendly and accommodating. we enjoy spending time in front of the manor's beautiful fireplace. There are some many wonderful details to look at, not to mention the wonderful food to savor. We cannot say enough about it.
My daughter and I were to stay at Stonehurst Manor for 4 days, planning months in advance for the Fall foliage, could not wait to visit. My daughter got mono and we could not come, it broke my heart, we cannot for see the future. I called Stonehurst and had to cancel. We could not believe they reimburst most of my deposit back for they rented my room, another well known hotel in Lincoln did not reimburst.
Thank you Stonehurst for being so fair, when we return we will definitely stay at STONEHURST MANOR.
We ate at the restaurant about a month ago and the food was great. So, when we went back to the area, we thought the inn would be a nice place to stay and expected it to be of the same or like quality as the dining. Not even close. We were shown 2 rooms--tiny, dark, very musty/smelly. Will NEVER go to stay at inn, but recommend restaurant.
We Enjoyed Our Stay
We just spent a couple of nights at Stonehurst Manor and really enjoyed it. I think a stay there is greatly affected by the room you get. More than once during our short visit I overheard upset visitors at the front desk complaining about their room shortly after check in. As they said at the desk when confronted by upset arrivals...it is an old inn with unique and varied rooms. Maybe a safer choice is the stay in the newer Mountain View Wing. Our room 33 in the Manor was very nice.
We thought the food was great, the staff friendly and efficient and the view from the pool/hot tub area is beautiful. I would recommend it.
Lovely Time At Stonehurst Manor. Greetings to Mrs. B!
We stayed at the Manor over the Christmas holidays and had an lovely time! Mrs. Bigelow, the house cat was an absolute delight, as well as all of the staff that we encountered. We stayed inside the original manor house, room 35. It was very cozy for us and our son. The house is in remarkable condition! We had a great time exploring the different rooms and had a fantastic time looking at some of the old books in the library lounge. Ed, the bartender is a wonderful resource on the Manor's history. We would definately stay again on our next trip to the states - we are planning a foliage trip for a future vaca.
3 Times so Far so Good
We have been to the Stonehurst 3 times and we actually got engaged there. Overall a nice cozy place with a great complete package. The food is great and the lounge with that huge fireplace and nice wood work is top notch. Great Martinis (as said before) plus you can have a few and just walk up to your room. Sure some of the rooms are small and bathrooms can be a little cramped.....the house is old!!!!
Sure some of the rooms need a little love, I also am surprised to hear about the ceiling issues etc.
I love the place and we are looking forward to coming back this year.
Give it a whirl it is a nice place.
I recently stayed at the Stonehurst on 12 and 13 of September, 2003. I booked a Manor with Fireplace room at $186.00 per night. I was given room 34, in no way does this room come close to the sample room depicted on your web site. Room 34 must have been a broom closet at one time, the window did not open, the air conditioner had to be used at all times, and even then it was warm in the room. The bathroom had a wire screen covering a hole in the ceiling, looked like it was to prevent vermin from entering the room. The room size was exceptionally small.
Room 34 was not worth the $186.00 per night rate that I was charged !
Disgusted with the Stonehurst Manor
After seven years visiting the Stonehurst Manor, I will NEVER return.
Upon our arrival in September, the skies opened up and our ceiling leaked so bad our childrens clothes were drenched and the pull out sofa so wet our children slept w/ us. Management offered a credit, however upon check out, no one was aware of the situation. I was told that I would be contacted w/i 48 hrs. After not hearing from Stonehurst management, for three weeks I contacted them. When I told them I wanted a partial room credit, I was rebuffed by management and treated as if THEY were the victim. GOOD BYE STONEHURST AND GOOD RIDDANCE.
My husband and I planned to stay here two nights and had reservations. The night before we arrived we stayed at the White Mountain Hotel and loved it. We were excited to move on to the Stonehurst Manor. Well, we arrived and found a small cubby hole for a reservation desk which should have clued us in. We got to the room which was supposed to be a suite. We were promised a balcony. Well it had a balcony but could not be used because it was screwed shut and it was dirty and falling apart to say the least. The bathroom was not much better. The sink had a slow drip which was annoying. The windows were screwed shut and had no screens so could not be opened. The shade in the bathroom window did not even work. There was no air conditioning in the room either. Needless to say, we left and got our money back and went back to the White Mountain Hotel where we had an awesome time. My husband and I were so looking forward to staying here as we had planned to do for so many years after having dinner here 18 years agand loving the food. What a big disappointment!!!
I had the pleasure of staying at the manor in mid feburary 2003 we had a two bedroom suite with a fireplace WELL let me tell you it was not pretty bland off-white walls with many cracks no wallpaper to give it charm the fireplace was so close to the bed that you couldn't lay in bed and see the fire burning but it had a fireplace!! the bathroom was so small no electric outlets for dryer etc barely enough for one the shower was smaller than a phone booth. electric outlets were few and over loaded a back stairway from the room was suppose to be screwed shut but was not with missing treaded toward the bottom watch out families with kids the food i thought would be out of this world with two chefs of the year but it was just good country cooking with no flare on detail icould of stayed home for that food no value for your dollar should of stayed in a motel saved money and tryed some better restaurants which there are many sorry
