“EASY TO PLEASE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We just returned from Cold Springs Resort. The accommodations were good. We had the bedroom with the queen bed and our Son, Daughter in law and Granddaughter arrived 4 days later, they had the room with twin beds. We were comfortable in our unit. Everything you could have needed was provided to have a great time. We did not need the AC we opened the windows at night. We felt it was clean and inviting. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We did our own exploration of NH, we were not looking for the resort to entertain us. There was a list of activities given to us on check in. The front desk was friendly and helpful. The wifi was nice to have. We would definitely stay here again.

Our family of 4 including a 5 year old and 2 year old spent a week at this resort from July 13th to the 20th. We have stayed at several other RCI resorts including many that are silver crown and found that this resort was in no way a sliver crown. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit. We found that though visibly clean the unit needed painting, new fixtures, new appliances a new TV, and badly, badly needed new carpet. The unit was very dark and not inviting upon entry.

The activites were quite limited as there were days that no activities were even offered. The pool was often diry with pine needles and bugs. The gunite pool needs ++ repairs as you can scrap yourself easily because it is so rough. The rest of the grounds are nice and well kept. You can rent movies which is nice of just $3.00.

The location of this resort is perfect. You are in the lake region, but just south of the White Mountains. There is lots to do for families. We visited the Whale Tale Waterpark (Can't wait to go back), Polar Caves, Weir's Beach, Mount Washington and Tanger Outlets. There is no shortage of things for families to do.

Overall, I feel that we would never go back to this resort as New Hampshire has many more that offer great value. It is not the worst place to stay but has lots of room for improvement.

Room Tip: We were across from the playground on the 1st level which was a good loaction.

I just returned from a time share exchange at Cold Spring. My exchange was to a one bedroom Lodges unit. It left a little to be desired, but the front desk makes up for any unit issues. These units are actually a loft bedroom with a queen bed and single in the loft and a hide-a-bed couch. With only one bathroom and a tiny, I mean tiny, kitchen, it would be very uncomfortable for more than two or three people. They have AC units, a ceiling fan and a portable fan in the loft, but it all adds up to noisy for sleeping. Include the thin walls and my recommendation is to ensure your bring earplugs.
For an older unit, they work hard at the maintenance, but the carpet leaves a little to be desired. The unit is dark so one doesn't want to spend extra time there. There is a back deck area, but only fits two people.
I recommend the place for its location in New Hampshire. Though not well publicised, they have local passes for the Ashland Beach so just a few dollars to go there, but most of the beachfront is privately owned so not accessible. There are some nice public beaches, but can be very busy on a hot weekend.
The area offers lots to do for nature lovers. Numerous small spots for trails and birding. A variety of activities for families and the Tanger Outlets are not far.

This was a time share exchange exchange for us. We wanted a centrally located place to stay in New Hampshire.
We arrived a little after 3 on Friday afternoon. There was a line for check in, but it went fast. Our check in was quick and easy. The thing that was different was that we were given a remote for the air conditioning at check in.
There was 6 of us in a 2 bedroom and a pull out couch. It was tight for 6 adults. The major issue for us was that there was only 1 bathroom.
The goods things about the condo was the full kitchen/dinning room and the screened in back porch. It was a great place to spend the evenings.
The resort has an indoor and out door pool and hot tub. There was also a game room, workout room, tennis court and there is a golf course across the street.
While you are in a wooded area, it is just a short drive to Ashland or Plymouth for shopping or restaurants.
We found the staff very helpful through our stay. I wish there was WiFi in the condos, just not the clubhouse.
We enjoyed our stay at Cold Spring Resort and would stay again.

Me and my wife just spent a week at the resort. I was concerned due to a couple reviews but found the place to be in great repair with very nice people willing to go out of their way to help us with local travel ideas. The only thing that could have made the unit more exciting would be a hot tub in the unit. All lights and appliances worked and were newer units. Size of the unit was great and the screened in back deck was a great place to sit and read or play games as there is plenty of space. .

Room Tip: Some great food places around. The Country Cow became a favorite of ours. Good food, great people an...

We stayed in a 2-bedroom condo with a 2-, 4-, and 6-year-old. It fully met our needs and was comfortable and cosy. The unit actually had 2 full bathrooms and a great extra cupboard for skis, etc.. The unit was well-stocked and the reost is a nice and quiet place for young children. Traffic in the area creeps along, there is a great little playground and the kids loved the pool which was clean (as well as the changing rooms with a sauna) and the water was very warm. The staff were friendly and helpful and the guests all seemed cheerful. The place is well situated for the mountains and the lakes, and it's a quick drive for groceries, gas, take-out, ice cream and wine!

Room Tip: We were in the last unit, closest to the highway. Outside, there was a low hum but we didn't he...

The rooms need to be updated. The heating system and the decor seems to be form the early 70s. The indoor pool area is boderline gross. The front desk is gone by 9pm so you are on your own if you need any assitance. Walls are paper thin and TVs are very old and no name brands so the picture quality is bad. Nice location and staff was very friendly but some time and money needs to be spent on this place to make it worth the trip. I rated Room Service as average based on the maintenance and housekeeping team because there was no "Room Service" available to order anything.

Room Tip: If you are looking for something cheap at a good location then this may be a good option. DO NOT use...
