We had 2 of our nephews and a niece with us for a 2 night stay in the White Mountains. We camped the first night, but thought we would freeze so needed an inexpensive place to stay that next night. We ended up in a place in North Conway (which I will review soon!) that was disgusting so I left... More

I decided on A Better Life Cabins because I wanted a good old-fashioned mountain cabin experience....right down to the owners....and it was exactly that. Rick (one of the owners) was in the general store (which has EVERYTHING one would need) with a smile and a helping hand when I told him I needed to buy a camera. The cabin was... More

Let me start by saying I am not hard to please. I chose this location for it's price,proximity to Attitash & quick trip to North Conway (15 mins).We stayed in cabin #9 with 4 full sized teenagers. At first, they bawked at the idea of all sharing one room but by the end of the weekend, it was clear that... More

I found Better Life (terrible misnomer) in a fly-fishing guide for the area; I should have known better than to trust the opinion of a guy who was using lodging strictly as a place to sleep. The cabins are extremely small, without a place really to turn around or sit in comfort. It's a place to sleep, period. If you... More

We stayed in Cabin 8, 10/11. The reason for the title is apparantly curry and masala. But the cabin really smells like mold and old male cat urine. It was disgusting!! There is a sign on the wall saying that people are not allowed to cook curry because of the smell it leaves and also not allowed to burn candles... More

We rarely look at TA so I'm a little slow in this response. If there was an issue on the dates you stayed (10/2 & 10/3), why did you not say something? We live right on the premises, approx 100' from #8. You didn't even register with us & the final charge for your cabin was not taken until after... More

I am shocked to see some of the things other guests have said about A Better Life Cabins. My boyfriend and I stayed at A Better Life for the first time over Labor Day weekend 2010 and we're getting ready to book our second stay for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend! Cabin 8 was small but it was everything we... More

For the first 9/10 of our visit, 'A Better Life' was fine - nothing special but what you would expect for the price, and in a good location. However, the owner decided to ruin our spirits by extremely rudely chasing us out after a misunderstanding between her and one of her staff around when exactly we would need to leave... More

This place charged my credit card a dish service fee stating that I left dirty dishes behind. This is FALSE. We brought our own dishes not knowing they actually provided dishes at the place. I noticed an extra charge on my credit card and when I called they stated that we left dishes dirty. I wouldn't waste my time complaining... More

While we loved having his parents stay with us on previous occasions, we would not be willing to accommodate this young man in the future. I'll just leave it at that. More
