... given that we were very lucky to have the sun out and the trail, though a bit wet, was easily manageable. Despite the uphill workout and the maneuvering required to deal with the rocks, we were going to be just fine.
As we hiked up further to get to the Tuckerman Junction, the scenery became more vast and the rocks much larger. From the junction, ...
Hallo meine Lieben,
ihr werdet es kaum glauben - es schneit! Nicht nur ein wenig, es schneit so richtig! Die gesamte Nacht fielen dicke Flocken vom Himmel, der angekündigte Schneesturm hat den Nordosten der USA erreicht, es sieht nicht danach aus, als wuerde der Frühling hier bald eintreffen.
Mir macht das nichts, wie ihr euch vorstellen könnt. Aber die Menschen hier sind langsam genervt, schliesslich dauert der Winter ...
We are so lucky to have friends that invite us to ski at Waterville Valley. It's a really nice family focused resort about a 5 hour drive from New Canaan. The kids get on well and know the resort so well now that they ski or snow board together and then meet up with their slower parents at lunch or the end of the day.
... This morning it's snowing, great big flakes. We're about 5 minutes out of Bridgton which itself is a lovely little place with a great bookshop (which Stephen King frequents apparently), a covered bridge, artsy/old fashioned cinema, as well as all the essentials. The boys have been snowboarding, we're hoping to ski on Saturday (there's a great little mountain just up the road) and we're going dog sledding (or mushing) tomorrow. Now I need to plan ...
First...the bad news. We didn't go the way we wanted to nor see all the things we planned to. The good news...we met some lovely people and spent way too long in some places just talkng and talking...unheard of right?!! Well, it started at breakfast in Manchester. We drove around and found Murphy's Diner. Gabe and I shared one order of french toast and coffee. It had linen napkins, and such a lovely ambience...with an old juke box in the corner, a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Colonial Motel North Conway
This was our third trip as a family to North Conway. The first two
We made last minute reservations at The Colonial based on tripadvisor reviews. The hotel looks a little old fashioned on the outside, but is completely clean and updated on the inside. The owner was very friendly. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was updated and clean. This place isn't fancy, but you get good value if you're looking for basic lodging at a fair price.
We loved it!
We have stayed in a few hotels in the North Conway area and the Colonial Motel is by the far the best we have experienced. It's a family-run place and they are VERY helpful with making sure you are comfortable and can suggest restaurants, playgrounds, and kids activities. The motel fairly small with about 20 or so rooms, so make sure you book in advance. We called about a week before our trip and was able to book a room with 2 Queen beds.
The room was very clean and what you would expect for ammenities in the price range we were paying. Some of the furniture does look a little dated, but that doesn't detract from the comfort of the place.
We would not hesitate to recommend this to our friends and definitely will be returning next year.
We booked in for a night and decided to stay another. My 3 kids were having a great time and my wife just couldn't get over the value and views. Our plans didn't quite work out the second day but we had agreat time anyway. A big part of this was the Colonial. Spacious clean room with a fridge.(good for a travelling family) Nice outdoor pool. Everything is nearby...village and mountains one way, outlet shopping the other. In my brief conversation with the owners Jerry and Michelle, I found them very hospitable and intent on making our stay a good one.
We will make sure this is a stop on our next family vacation tour next summer.
We stayed for 3 nights with our young son and couldn't have been happier with our time there. It's in a great location on the main strip in North Conway, halfway between the town centre and the outlets. Despite being on rt 16, the hotel is set far enough back from the road that noise is not an issue. The rooms were on the large side, and very clean. We were in a room with two queens and had plenty of space to set up a pack 'n play for our son to sleep in.
The Colonial Hotel is just a great spot with wonderful hospitality by the owners Jerry and Michelle. They went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. We'll definitely be back, maybe in the winter for some skiing.
This motel is conveniently located between downtown North Conway and the outlet stores. The owner was extra helpful and took the iniative to provide us with brochures, coupons, and driving directions. The room was very clean.
We have just returned from a weekend in Conway, NH at the Colonial Motel. The website does not do the hotel justice! It is the cleanest and friendliest place I have visited in a long time!
We had a 'suite' (actually two adjoining rooms) for our family of six. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. Very friendly couple who own the place. Got discount tickets for Cranmore....BIG savings when all are skiing ($11 off an adult daily pass). Would definitely stay again.
Less is more
We were treated like kings at this small but lovely motel with a backyard view of the White Mts. Run by the Hopkins family, who are ever so helpful and friendly, the rooms are all renovated , the beds excellent, and the service wonderful. We even got a Jeep tour of the Mt Washingron area!
What a gem!!!
The first inkling I had that this place was a gem came when I phoned for reservations. Michelle took the call and was very friendly and helpful. We arrived and were at once delighted. It is a family-run motel as clean as a whistle. The room we had was charming in it's decor but best of all was the fact that there were several lights in the room (often missing in chain hotels). It was a very comfortable, homey place. The family who run it are terrific.
