“Still the best place to stay in North Conway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2010

Didn't stay in our usual Crown Ridge unit #5 but switched over to one of the Mountain View units up the hill. Number 8. We've stayed in those before and they work perfect for us. Still plenty of room, great views, etc. 11 years on and we still can't say enough about this place. Did our usual jaunts around the area and each time we come up there it gets harder and harder to come home. We thought as the boys got older they wouldn't enjoy it as much be we were wrong.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2010

Stayed here as an RCI exchange, great value for money in one of their sleeps 2 suites. Units are big but are looking a little dated now (decor has been redone recently and our unit was very clean). If you are a light sleeper be aware that the walls and ceilings are very thin. We had the downstairs section of a town house and could hear every footstep from those in upstairs. They were not particularly noisy but even walking about made them sound like a herd of Elephants. We were lucky they went to bed early every night and did not keep us awake. Others may not be so lucky. Would echo the calls of others to extend the Wi Fi to the units, its a pain to have to go to the club house to log in. Small units do not have washing machines and there are none on site so you will have to go into town and find the laundry if you need to do some washing.
Crown Ridge is a little out of North Conway in a fairly remote setting and you have to drive to everything (walking is not an option), however if you like remote settings then this is for you. There are other RCI resorts nearer to the centre of North Conway.

NB if you have not been before and you are there to ski Cranmore Mountain, the nearest resort is for beginners only and is only good for a warm up if you are anything above intermediate standard. Attitash has more going for it and is 20 minutes drive. If you are going to wildcat on one of their $9 ski pass days go early otherwise you will not get into the parking lots. They are small and fill quickly. Other than that we skied Loon (1hr) and Bretton woods (45mins) before moving on to Vermont.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2009

In early September 2009, we took advantage of Crown Ridge Resort on a timeshare exchange. We are a family with one child (preschooler). Since we have visited this area before, we thought that we would try something different. Though the property is only a few minutes from the Main Street of North Conway, there is the feeling of tranquility and of being far removed from the busy tourist town. Signage to the property is limited and may leave you wondering if you are on the right road especially if you are navigating without the aid of a GPS. Each unit/condo is nestled on the hillside, within quick drive/walk from the main reception building. The units are adequate though some of the major appliances are showing signs of wear and are outdated. The units were very clean though the lower level bedroom did have a slight musty smell. The beds were comfortable. Our unit featured two bedrooms (a king bed in the lower floor bedroom, queen bed on the main level bedroom) with a loft featuring a futon and a sofa bed in the living area. The living area features a gas fireplace. Our unit offered two bathrooms with one being a private bath off the lower bedroom featuring a jet tub and standup shower. The bathrooms were clean. My biggest issue with Crown Ridge is the lack of internet access. WiFi is only accessible at the reception building, where is little privacy for those looking to catch up on work back at the office. What accommodation/resort does not offer internet access to today’s traveler?! This was frustrating especially since I was hoping to catch up on some work during the evenings. The reception building does offer a nice indoor pool however; there is a lack of adequate changing rooms and for those using the exercise equipment, take caution of water on the floor as people move from the pool to the bathrooms. The games room might be a good spot for children/teenagers (pool table, darts, arcade game, puzzles) but it also acts as the property’s WiFi hot spot so expect some noise while connected online. A tennis court and small playground is located behind the reception building. For winter activities, the nearest ski slope is approx. 1.5 miles away but cross county skiing is available on property. A few upgrades in services could really make this location a much more pleasurable stay (WiFi, Flat Screens, new Washer/Dryer units). Certainly, if your looking to get away from it all (including your laptop) while not being to far off the beat track, then Crown Ridge Resort will likely satisfy your vacation request. I personally will wait and return when they can start offering internet in their units. One note worth mentioning: Travelers should avoid Hurricane Mountain Road. Some GPS units may offer this route to the resort… avoid it! Not only is it a seasonal road and likely treacherous in the winter months but it will also wear down your brakes!

Crown Ridge is a fantastic facility. The staff are well informed and eager to assist guests.

The units are spacious, clean and well appointed. The view from the resort is fabulous.

The resort is located just minutes from Mount Cranmore and is a 5 minute drive from central North Conway.

Our stay took place after the peak of fall foilage and before the Holiday Season.

I would highly recommend this resort to anyone thinking of visiting North Conway, New Hampshire.

  • Liked — Spacious, well appointed units.

We used our timeshare week thru RCI to stay a week in January at this resort. We had a 3 bedroom house, very private and spacious! Somewhat updated, gas fireplace and newer appliances. Not totally clean but okay. Enjoyed the quiet mountain location and area activities - skiing was so-so because of the weather but everything was closeby!

We used an RCI exchange for Crown Ridge and we took another couple with us from Tucson, AZ. Other than the fact that the weather was rainy for the most part, we totally enjoyed the resort and the area. The staff were more than friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it.
