We are just getting back from a few days up in the White Mountains in a town just outside North Conway, New Hampshire. A little family getaway and change of scenery was much needed after the holidays. It’s not our first trip to this area. It’s fun in many different seasons and loved it each time. This was the first time we rented a dog friendly cabin right after Christmas with plans to spend our NYE celebrating 2021 in a little home away from home in Bartlett, NH. I had a few requests from my friends on INSTA to share the spot we stayed and some activities we enjoyed.
During this winter getaway we packed the skis + my snow board and hit up both Bretton Woods and Mt. Cranmore. Bretton Woods had stunning views of Mt. Washington and great grooming snow making. Mt. Cranmore which is right in downtown North Conway is perfect for kids and beginner skiers.
What I loved about our Cabin in the woods was the proximity to Jackson, NH which has an adorable downtown with a cute puzzle shop and gorgeous bakery and cafe called Autumn Nomad. We love the Wild Cat Tavern for a delicious dinner, we didn’t go this time but have in the past- it’s such a fun vibe! You’ll also enjoy the many hiking trails, as well as the lower falls and Glen Ellis Falls. It is also near kid friendly attractions like Story Land which we’ve done in the summer when the kids were little (Santa’s Village is also great in the summer just a little further away)!
If you’ve never been to North Conway, there is SO MUCH to do! North Conway is also just a 10-15 minute drive from this cabin where you will find breweries and our favorite country store Zebb’s. Be sure to grab lunch at Horse Feather’s and you must try their Horsefries! The crunchy chicken salad was amazing! The little downtown is full of local small shops and of course the outlets! Also as far as eating out this time around, we cooked in and ordered take out. Red Fox Grill was a repeat and was SO GOOD just down the street from the Cabin we stayed at!
One of my favorite activities we did this past week was the Nestlenook Farm (definitely make reservations) we chose a nighttime horse driven carriage ride through the woods. I would highly recommend it! We brought our own blankets and did the private tour which came with champagne and hot chocolate for the kids! They also have ice skating as well. It’s a really beautiful property with lots of fire pits and Christmas lights.
We were hoping to do some snow shoeing or even snow mobile rides but there just wasn’t enough snow cover for those activities this time around.
HERE is the link to the cabin, I had multiple requests for sharing. I hope you are able to book a little getaway and enjoy some time in the White Mountains. You won’t regret it!
