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 ...
... so it was cool seeing things from another vantage point.
A much-needed rest - which only lasted a couple hours - gave us somewhat of a second wind before another evening of exploring. Larry and Yvonne showed us around their property, introducing us to their mini donkeys Grace and Silas, and their dog Opal. Built (with their own hands) in 1976, the Jenkins residence has incredible mountain views, and their back yard is laden with ...
Although a fair distance from the Atlantic Ocean and any sea-dwelling creatures, we had the potential for altogether different encounters with wildlife here in the White Mountains. Leaving the quaint isolation of our mountain cottage on Puggy Huddle was hard (it's just so beautiful), but we ventured out and did some exploring through the White Mountains. Whipping southeast through the mountains, we drove faster than the following weather could move. Although not built ...
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 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.
Big Let Down
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.
I don't believe that I have ever actually stayed over night anywhere before in a room that smelled that strong of mold.
I understand the resort is closed up during the winter and maybe that is the problem.
For what they charge for their rooms we expected clean, fresh rooms. We ended up with the exact opposite and were very disappointed.
To be fair the staff at the reception area were very pleasant . However, the rooms were far from pleasant!!!
I am confident that we could have done something to make them happy while they were here. It is our goal to never have a negative experience at the Fox Ridge.
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 :)
