We've stayed at several places in North Conway (hotels, motels, condos, etc), and had been planning at least one more visit back to Storyland before the season was over - and suddenly saw a groupon for the Fox Ridge Resort that was too good to pass up.
I nervously pulled into the resort, hoping it would be a nice place to celebrate our birthday weekend (my mother, myself and my daughter all have birthdays the same weekend!)
We were all very pleasantly surprised! Nothing over-the-top fancy, but a lot of great pluses. Two pools, free little mini golf course, resort activities all day long like yoga, popsicles at the pool for kids, etc. For an additional fee you can get tickets to an indoor water park at the affiliated Red Jacket just a couple blocks away. Big rooms, with a fridge inside the room, and a very helpful room layout (the bathroom had the tub/shower and loo, but the sink and some towels, etc were outside the bathroom, making it easier for us to get ready quickly in the morning with kids, or wind down at night.) A nice little patio is also attached to the room, with a door at the back of the room opening up to a lovely view of the mountains and the outdoor pool in the distance. Also, I didn't realize that there was a free breakfast buffet - and it was much bigger and nicer than in other area places we have stayed, with a large seating area. The place isn't super modern, but well designed with attentive staff and a fantastic location.
