... I cooked a lobster was about 30 years ago when we lived in Boston and it was an Annie Hall experience with the lobster clawing around on the kitchen counter and me hopping around the kitchen trying to catch it. This Friday night Barry & Karen, friends from Miami, are coming up for a visit and they’re purchasing lobsters on their drive up from Boston. We are counting on them to do the cooking – Karen is ...
Today we left the easy coast and travelled inland. The further west we went the further on autumn is. The road we travelled was treed on both sides which makes this area so spectacular in autumn.
We stopped in the small town of Pinkham, New Hampshire for lunch and a member of the town Council welcomed us to the town and they even had a red carpet.
We climbed higher up Mt White to Conway for our night stopover. ...
... Orange, New Jersey and the idea was that we would get it on our drive south at the end of October. But in a discussion with our friend John, he told us about his son Ollie who is on a several month road trip out west and is having mail sent to post offices along the way. A light bulb was turned on! If we could receive mail here in Bartlett, then we could receive our absentee ballot here but also ...
So we left VT this morning from the Quechee Gorge State Park, a mildly interesting gouge in the earth. Beautiful of course, it's VT after all. And we breakfasted at a wonderful bakery/cafe called the Trap Door. Artisans with pastry, yum. We indulged after a refreshing run down to the gorge and back up, then to the dam and lake behind it . Now we are ensconced in ...
... we don't have the power cord to our nice camera - we're stuck with a cell phone picture.
This bald eagle is actually a juvenile, and doesn't have the white head yet. We expect that next year, he'll be about 5 years old and have his white head.

Historical Traveler Reviews Fox Ridge Resort North Conway
I was very disappointed in this resort. From what I saw online it appeared to be much nicer. We had an alcove room and the alcove was very small. 2 twin beds fit in the room against each wall with barely enough room to squeeze into the room. The hotel was built in 1995 (according to the writing in the concrete in front of the office) and it does not appear any updating has been done since. The room was clean but very drab. The furniture was somewhat beat up. The interior doors needed painting. We spent about the same amount of money at each of the hotels we stayed at all week (and in some cases less). This was by far the worst.
We stayed at the Fox Ridge Resort last week and found the hotel to be a comfortable, friendly, and clean hotel. The indoor and outdoor pools were clean and outstandingly refreshing. The staff at the front desk, the housekeepers, and the maintenance men, were all very pleasant and helpful. We will absolutely be staying there again.
I find it hard to believe that the previous reviewers and ourselves are reviewing the same location. There were four of us, my husband and I and another couple. We were quite looking forward to our stay at the Fox Ridge until we walked into the lobby and then into our rooms. The odour of mold or dampness was so strong that we dreaded staying there even one night. Both couples couldn't wait to get out of there in the morning and we cancelled the second night that we had booked.
Loved the recessed location of the hotel - just far enough off the main strip to offer peace and quiet, with great views over the White Mountains.
Pleasant staff, very reasonable prices and the pool was a godsend in unusually hot late june temperatures.
Surrounding area is beautiful - don't miss Diana's Baths, bring your swimwear and enjoy the cascades (if a little on the chilly side), also the Kancamagus Route is stunning and do stop off to do at least 2 of the trails (Mount Chocorua is a 5 hour hike and a challenge but well worth it for the views, nature etc.)
North Conway is a lovely place (despite some reviews on the net saying that is fraying around the edges) - good shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars
This was the best place I have ever stayed in! My 5 year old daughter can't stop talking about the "club house". We ended up booking a family suite. There are lots of things to keep the kids busy & my daughter who is only 40 inches could reach the bottom of the heated indoor pool. I have told many people that this should be your first pick when visiting Storyland. We are alredy making plans for this years trip!
You will not be diappointed!!!

Highly recommended! Wonderful location that was easy to find and featured terrific views. It is within walking distance to great (tax-free!) shopping but still a secluded, retreat-like atmosphere. The room was ample and clean with a nice view from the balcony. The staff was friendly and very helpful, going above the call of duty to be sure our every need was met. This was the best and least expensive of four different places we stayed while on a New England fall vacation.
Visiting from the UK
We stayed in the Fox Ridge Resort for five nights in October this year.
I had spent a long time looking for a hotel and I was not disappointed with this one. Very central and easy to find and North Conway is such a lovely place. The rooms were fabulous and we liked the fact there was coffee and tea available pretty much all the time. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, everyone was so friendly and helpful. I would recommend Fox Ridge to anyone thinking of visiting New Hampshire. We had a wonderful holiday and look forward to visiting your great country again very soon in the future.
I've been staying at Fox Ridge since I was a child. They have great service. You couldn't ask for more. Indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, mini golf, playground, washer and dryer and a gameroom, outdoor trails and a beautiful mountain view. In the summer they offer barbeque's by the outdoor pool; and on weekends they have an excellent buffet breakfast.
Our Favorite place
When we first started going to N. Conway about 10 years ago we weren't sure where to stay. I had always assumed that Fox Ridge, sitting way up on the hill, was out of our league. Then one trip we decided to stay there. It was wonderful! The atmosphere is so relaxed and if you get a mountain view room you can "watch the clouds being made" over coffee in the morning. There is a laundry/game room that even overlooks this incredible view and mini golf and a playground along with an indoor and outdoor pool. Sadly we had to stay other places when we didn't reserve early enough and it was awful! When we stay at Fox Ridge, we are home :)
