Global Discovery Vacations Review: Hiking Attitash Mountain, NH

It’s the perfect season for frosty mountain hikes, which is why Global Discovery Vacations member Bonny J. and her family trekked up to the mountains of New Hampshire. Staying at the Attitash Mountain Village, Bonny tells us about her refreshing hikes in this week’s Member Monday!

Where would you recommend a fellow member go to…
We appreciate the option having a kitchen in the unit. We visited a local farm for fresh meat, eggs and maple syrup.

For those who enjoy shopping, there’s plenty to keep you entertained in North Conway.

Have fun/attractions:
There is hiking, walking and many more outdoor activities at any time of year.

What was your favorite…
Resort/Condo Amenity:
Bedrooms were each on their own floor, which made for added privacy. The outdoor hot tub provided much relaxation. A wonderful cross country ski trail around the resort was perfect for a late afternoon walk.

Place to go in the destination:
A quick drive to mountains, trails, Kancamagus Highway, local artisan shops, shopping and nightlife.

Why did you choose this destination? Were you traveling for a special occasion?
The idea was to spend time in the mountains with extended family. We wanted the ability to limit our driving once we arrived, and the area of Attitash Mountain gave us easy access to numerous hiking trails.

What was your favorite memory of your vacation?
Coffee and tea were available at the front desk. We enjoyed a hot cup as we sat outdoors in the cold afternoon temperatures and soaked in the view of the ski mountain located directly across the street.

Any tips for a traveler going to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
If you forget anything, shops are close by so you won’t have to go without.

Additional Comments:
This area of New Hampshire was recently affected by severe storm flooding. Although the resort units themselves were not affected by the water, the damage was apparent as we hiked near the rivers. Resort staff and local park rangers were all willing to share information and photos of the storm and its aftermath.
