We rented a 4 bedroom unit for a long getaway vacation. We had a great time, the location was great, beach was very nice, we had a grill to cook food, a fire pit to roast marshmallows, and full kitchen. We went canoeing, kayaking, all was great. The only complaint I would have here is how to get in touch with someone in the office. There is no cellular service up there, and at the time we didn't know there were land lines in room. We didn't know how to get to beach, kayak, or canoe, our electricity went out and we couldn't tell anyone because no one would answer the front desk. It was only next day could we have breakers reset. Only upon going to a farm stand did we find out how to get to the beach, it is very well hidden. Other surprise, I know there was to be a housekeeping charge but when we got our final bill it was 200.00 I sent a note to the office asking about it and it is now 3 days ago still no answer. I guess my biggest complaint would be that the office should put some type of what and where things are. located. Don't get me wrong, we accomplished our goal to have a small vacation together as family since we had to cancel two already, but the front desk people I think need to be a little more willing to reply to potential customer or current customers. Many if not all extra activities were all shut down due to covid

Thank you auction06mom for taking the time to provide the constructive feedback and sharing your experience. The 4-circle review is encouraging and there are indeed aspects of the Purity Spring Resort experience that many have come to expet that have changed considerably on account of COVID safety measures for all. We have tried to share this summer's operating information directly from our website home page as well as communicating that to guests once a reservation has been made, but it appears we did not provide all the information necessary to set expectations correctly for your visit. We continue to look for opportunities to improve and your feedback has already been forwarded to others here with the request to follow-up with you directly. It was great to read that the goal of enjoying a vacation together as a family.

Our Boy Scout troop stayed at this resort, 31 boys and 9 adults, for a weekend ski trip. We stayed at the "Tecumsah" lodge, which contained no-frills rooms which were perfect for a large family- or friends-group such as ours. Our group was large enough to take over most of the lodge. All of the rooms contained a full-sized bed and one- or two- sets of bunk-beds (though our room contained a full, a twin, and a bunk bed). Most of the bunk-beds were wooden and sturdy, but some of the rooms with two "real" beds are metal. The wooden bunk beds were comfortable for an adult to sleep on, but the metal bunk bed frames were really only comfortable for a child, so make sure which kind of bunk-frame the room you are booking has as an adult will be uncomfortable on the metal-framed bunk version. Food was served in the huge dining hall downstairs and was adequate and tasty. Staff was friendly and helpful, though only present during the day. Breakfast each day consisted of scrambled eggs, a meat, a starch (french toast, pancakes, waffles), and some kind of porridge. There was a large coffee maker available all day until it ran out after-hours, as well as juice, cocoa, and tea available 24:7, as well as fresh fruit. Lunch was also similarly adequate and tasty; as was supper. Not 5-star hotel fare, but perhaps a very well-run cafeteria with better-quality ingredients? They are able to accommodate gluten and dairy allergies if you give the kitchen staff enough notice. Each room had its own bathroom. There were also two bathrooms available on the first floor, one in the dining hall, the other kind of tucked away next to the front office. There was another Girl Scout troop staying in the lodge behind us as the same time as our, as well as several related family-groups in the lodge across the street The boys really enjoyed the pool in the main lodge (down the street), though it was so cold the weekend we were there we drove down the hill. The tubing park (part of King Pine Ski Area) was a short walk out the back of the lodge, though with the ski portion, we were lazy and drove to the bottom of the hill (but you could walk if you wanted to). We will come back here again next year. My only gripe is the pillows were kinda "meh." We'll come back next year, but I'll probably pack my own pillow from home.

Thank you Anna E for taking the time to post the 5-circle rating and share your positive review and experience your Boy Scout group had staying in the "Lodges" accommodations we provide utilizing the facilities and functional aspects of our summer boys camp. "Rustic" by design, it's great to see a group like yours enjoyed the stay and we look forward to having you back.

This place is not worth the money it costs to stay! We booked at "the inn" and it was basically a barn with beds in it, as is "the mill". I do not know what the other rooms looked like, but for much cheaper you can stay a a nicer place than this in north conway only 20 mins away. The pictures on their website were probably taken 20 years ago when the place was kept up nicely, it looks very run down now. Also FYI if you think you can walk around the "resort" (don't be fooled by the name...it's not!) you can not! nothing at this place is within walking distance and it is also on a busy road/highway. If you are playing in the hockey tournament there is no parking. And yes you will have to drive because they don't tell you that the pond is actually way down the very busy road and you can not walk to it. You have to park miles away and use the shuttle unless you plan on getting there for 7am then you may find a spot on the side of the road. The shuttle also takes about 30 mins just to get to the pond because it goes all around this place and picks everyone else up, again not worth it. Also as per the youth tournament website it says each participant gets free ski passes to use that weekend.........surprise surprise, you don't!! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

It's unfortunate to read your 1-circle review, as it is the first and only one that Purity Spring Resort has received to date among the other 224 reviews posted in the 18 years that the resort has had a Tripadvisor page. Same can be said for the same review you posted on our Google page. We know that the many more 4- and 5-circle reviews you can see and read here help to reflect the positive experience the majority of our guests have. To address what I read as rather non-specific complaints that don't all pertain to Purity Spring Resort, we can tell you that the pictures on our website are not 20 years old as we recently launched our redesigned, new website this past fall. Also, not sure your specific definition of "resort", but our approximate 1,000 acre property that includes a wide variety of lodging accommodations, many year-round recreational activities including King Pine Ski Area, our onsite Traditions Restaurant & Pub, heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, fitness room, available massage services and more is located on Route 153, a state 2-lane road that provides an alternate route for those generally traveling to and from North Conway/Mt. Washington Valley area and looking to avoid traffic on Route 16. Posted speed limits with blinking yellow lights indicate 30 mph through the resort, but unfortunately not all drivers observe speed limits. Your other two complaints would be better directed to the organizers of the Youth Pond Hockey Festival which is a fundraising event for the The Laura Foundation for Autism and Epilepsy, a non-profit organization. They will tell you that lift tickets (that King Pine donated at no cost) to support the event were indeed supplied to all team coaches. If you did not receive those, you will want to ask your team's coach about that. Event organizers will also tell you that every effort is made to accommodate the capacity number of teams that participate and that Purity Spring Resort and King Pine Ski Area do everything possible to accommodate the fundraising event, including operating a shuttle to provide assistance moving participants, families, friends and volunteers from satellite parking locations. On account that all guests staying at Purity Spring Resort that weekend are participating in the event, we've received no other complaints and all seemed to understand the time needed and effort made to be shuttling people around during the event. We also recognize that we're unable to have all participants stay with us and that many do stay in North Conway. This of course contributes to the parking congestion and need for shuttling event participants from satellite lots. Parking for the event doesn't take in to account that there are many skiers and snowboarders at King Pine over the weekend that are not part of the event that are parking in the ski area's main parking lot. Your review has been shared with the Purity Spring Resort management team and we will do our best to identify who you are so that we may be able to contact you directly to understand what we might do better to have accommodated you, along with the many participants who do stay with us when participating in the Youth Pond Hockey Festival. It’s a great fundraising event and we can assure you that your experience is not common and most are happy with and enjoy the event and their stay. aWe conduct email surveys with all of our guests and will be looking to see if any similar complaints come in, which have not as of yet. We've also forwarded your complaint and would hope to provide your contact info to the Youth Pond Hockey Festival organizers, including the director of The Laura Foundation as well your team's coach so that they are aware of your posted review when considering event planning and participant communications for the event next year.

Fantastic friendly staff! Great food. So much to do. The resort is a beautiful piece of NH. Swimming or fishing in a crystal clear lake is so relaxing. Fantastic hiking trails and the most fun was the lobster and steak cookout,everyone in their wildest tie dye. This is a must see in NH

We really lucked out with a last-minute room at Purity Springs Resort on New Year's Eve. The place was packed so I can only assume we got in because of a cancellation. We figured the place would be fun but this cozy, family-oriented resort exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the King Pine Slopeside lodge in a room overlooking the mountain. The space is nothing overly fancy but it was absolutely perfect for our family (2 adults, 3 kids), not to mention clean and spacious. It was wonderful to put our gear on and walk right downstairs to the mountain. The pool and buffet restaurant were in 2 different buildings down the road. We drove back and forth but there was a shuttle that we saw a lot so it would have also been easy to take the shuttle around. The indoor pool is very large with many chairs around it. Depth 3'-5'. The breakfast and dinner buffets were plentiful and delicious. There is an ice skating rink across the street, walkable from the ski lodge. It's a covered outdoor rink and the temperatures were not ideal for the ice during our stay, but we still gave it a try and had fun. It would be great if the weather and ice were better. All of the staff at the entire place was friendly and welcoming. As for the skiing, King Pine is a perfect place for beginners to learn, with some additional challenging trails for those a little more adventurous. The lessons are 90-minutes long and our kids progressed well during that time. It is obvious that many families go back to Purity Springs Resort year after year—and for good reason. We are already talking about when we will make another trip back.
