We stayed at this resort from July 6-9 2009 as part of a Shell Vacation Time Share points redemption. The main reason was its proximity to Boston and availability for peak period just after July 4th.
We were pleasantly surprised by this resort.
1) Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff at check in, housekeeping and golf course
2) Nice 2 bedroom unit - recently renovated it appears
3) Great golf course with very reasonable rates - we paid $60 for 2 people to play on special Tuesday with cart for $60!!!!
4) Very quiet place - kind of in the middle of "nowhere", but beautiful countryside in mid-south portion of New Hampshire
1) Small resort, not very many rooms (only 20 I think, more being renovated next year) and not much to do if you dont hike, ski or play golf. Having said that, if you just want to chill out, cook you own food in your well-equipped kitchen or eat at the on-site restaurant, it is a great place to go.
2) No activities program that I could see.
3) Outdoor pool was OK, but not heated.
Overall, we were very pleased with our 3 night stay at Crotched Mountain Resort. It was great value for the money and people in this resort (and all of New England for that manner) were very friendly and always willing to help.
