We came here in mid-November, just for a break. Long past the foliage sealn and before the skiers arrived So while we weren't able to take advantage of a lot of the resort amenities -swimming in Purity Lake, kayaks and canoes, BBQ and picnic tables - we still had a delightful, quiet stay. The indoor pool was lovely and the changing and locker rooms made it easy to enjoy. Bring your bathing suits.
The resort is spread out, there's a main in and then a lot of small cottages. We were in Lakeside, which housed two guest rooms, and really was just at the edge of the lake. Wonderful. You do have to walk across the street to get to the restaurant for dinner or breakfast, but it is close.
The room was lovely. Very big. Nice big bed, wonderful linens and pillows. There was a twin daybed as well, which was nice to use as a couch for lounging. Good amount of dresser storage. A small fridge, coffee-maker, microwave, and an Iphone docking station/alarm clock/radio which we really enjoyed since it provided a good selection of music including classical.
Luxuriously big bathroom, great hot shower (it was 13° F outside in the morning) and a nice flat-screen TV. Everything was spotlessly clean.
The view out over the lake was beautiful, and breakfasts were excellent. All the people we encountered were friendly and helpful. I'm sure the place gets Much busier in season, but we loved being there in one of the quiet times. Still, it'd be great to come back in the summer to enjoy the lake in a more active way. This place is not 4-star luxury, but it is five-star clean and comfortable. You can tell that the people who run Purity Spring really care about their place and the people who stay here.
The King Pine Ski Area (and a great looking outdoor ice skating rink) is about a 1/4 mile up the road. Easy access to the Conway and North Conway areas, too.
