Named a resort of distinction by RCI (Resort Condominiums International), Deer Park Resort provides a beautiful, well-kept vacation destination in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Deer Park Resort is located in Lincoln, New Hampshire, Exit 32 off Route 93 at the start of the Kancamangus Highway (rated as one of America's most scenic drives by AAA). The resort is just a two-hour drive from Boston and three-and-one-half hours from Montreal.
Just minutes away from the famous Franconia Notch, the heritage spot of the “Old Man of the Mountains” and surrounded by National Forest lands, this expansive 62 acre campus boasts a 5 acre spring fed lake with a sandy beach, swimming area and floating raft, and a large state of the art recreation center (clubhouse).
Nearby, the towns of Lincoln and North Woodstock provide activities and entertainment that range from adventurous to self-indulgent. The area offers outdoor experiences like hiking, swimming, horseback riding, golf, fishing, rock climbing, biking, and skiing. Miles of paved bike trails in Franconia Notch and Lincoln access the scenic forests. Skiing is five minutes away at Loon Mountain with FREE shuttle service during the ski season. There are also three other major ski mountains (Cannon, Bretton Woods, and Waterville Valley) within 15-30 minutes from the front door. After hours, nearby night spots cater to a variety of ages and musical preferences.
Other activities include sightseeing, shopping, miniature golf, and dining for all tastes including steaks, seafood, vegetarian, ethnic, pub food, pizza and fast food. Visit the many family attractions including the Mt. Washington Cog Railway, gondola rides on Loon and Cannon Mountains, the Hobo Railroad, Clark’s Trading Post, Santa’s Village, Whale’s Tail Water Park, Lost River Gorge, Boulder Caves, the Flume and Basin, Indian Head, Boise Rock, or be treated to a guided wildlife (moose) tour. There are also two major outlet shopping malls less than an hour away: Tanger Outlets in Tilton and Settler’s Green in North Conway.
Our spacious corner unit condominium feels like a wonderful “home away from home”. A full kitchen offers convenient meal preparation and easy clean-up for thrifty vacationers. All utensils, dish sets, and pots and pans are provided. An adjacent dining area seats up to six at the table and three more at the breakfast bar.
In the living room are an easy chair and couch (a fold-out for sleeping two), a 32-inch color TV, DVD and VCR player, and a gas fireplace. Free wireless internet is also available.
Off the dining/living areas are two bedrooms; each assigned a full bath with tub and shower. The master bedroom contains a comfortable queen size bed while the bath area has a wide sink, mirrored dressing space and a Jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom includes two twin beds. Both bedrooms have dressers and large closets.
The condominium has a private lockable ski storage closet by the front door and a washer/dryer in the basement laundry (coin operated). Children can safely ride bikes or play outdoors on the grounds and on the grassy area by the gazebo. Within steps of the front door are charcoal barbeque grills and picnic tables for a camping flavor. A quick walk across the parking lot brings you past the tennis courts and basketball hoops, and gets you access to the oversize gas grill by the recreation center and lake.
The resort's clubhouse offers wireless internet, a large TV and rental video viewing room with video library ($ if taken back to unit, free if watched in clubhouse), a games room ($), pool table ($), ping pong table, large indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, fully-equipped exercise room, weight room, two racquetball courts, and locker rooms with showers. The upper level includes a comfortable lounge with an open fire place, a kitchen and large seating area to accommodate multi-family get togethers, and a balcony overlooking the lake.
Outdoor activities at the resort include ice skating, tennis, basketball, a five-acre, spring-fed lake for boating (non-motorized) and a beach for swimming.
Our family of four (2 teenaged sons) has vacationed at Deer Park Resort for the last 6 years and finally made the leap and bought our own unit. We have decided to rent our unit out at discounted rates (compared to going through the rental office) so that others could enjoy the resort as much as we do without breaking the bank.
We love the area - there is so much to see and do for families with kids of all ages. Our boys still enjoy going to the resort to spend time relaxing by the lake, swimming in the pool, and taking part in the many other activities the area has to offer.
In the nicer weather, there is a very nice beach area at the man-made, spring fed lake for swimming. In the colder/wetter weather, you can enjoy the indoor pool, hot tub and sauna.
