We just spent a long weekend at The Oxford House Inn with our kids (ages 20, 19, 12) It was absolutely GORGEOUS there. The Inn is beautiful, the inn keepers - a young couple - Natalie and Jonathan Spak were really really wonderful. They also have two beautiful dogs who are so sweet and laid back. Loved them!
The view of the mountains is breathtaking from 2 of the 4 rooms they rent (the other 2 rooms face the downtown - main street - still very pretty). All 4 rooms are spacious and have their own bath. They did most of the renovations themselves. It really shows how much they put into the small details and extra care taken in renovating and making their accommodations comfortable, spacious and beautiful. Same with the restaurant part of the house and the basement that was turned into Jonathan's Pub. Very very cool. ! The restaurant and Jonathan's Pub were EXCELLENT. The food is top notch. The gourmet breakfast each morning was delicious. And the coffee - I had to buy a lb of it to take home - it was THAT good. If you go up there, you have to ask them about their coffee, maple syrup, etc. Great little stories !
The rates are very reasonable and includes a gourmet breakfast each morning. They welcome well-behaved children but this is definitely geared more towards adults and children over age 12. Truly outstanding. There are also local restaurants and pizzerias within walking distance in town. North Conway, NH is a short 15 min drive from the Inn. www.oxfordhouseinn.com
Next door is Fryeburg Snowmobile Rentals (Terry is the owner). Literally a short walk in the snow around the backyard to the snowmobiles. The view out back faces a very large field, maple trees and a gorgeous view of the mountains. You rent the snowmobiles and drive down the field onto the trails. That easy ! They have 30 new Arctic T500 machines ! We rented two double sleds and had a great time ! They provide you with a map with detailed trails. Rumored to have over 1000 miles of trails from this area ! www.sledandbed.com
We also snow tubed at Cranmore Mtn. It was $22 pp for 2 hour session. It was a lot of fun. Great for all ages ! They have a towline or you can walk up the mountain. They have 2 sections for snowtubing. After the first towline, you walk further up to another towline that is higher up the mountain. This snow tube trail is steeper and longer ride. We did a few runs on that one and then walked to the lower one and finished with a few more runs from there. Great time and not as cold as the weathermen predicted ! Just dress warmly and in layers and you will be fine ! They have a small tent setup at the bottom with two port o potties (a rest room is not that far of a walk either) and snack machines and two picnic tables with heaters running at all times - in case you need to warm up or need a short break. www.cranmore.com
We will definitely visit there again !
