OUR PLACE: Deer Park Resort is a highly sought after, well-maintained private resort located just off exit 32 on I-93 (Kancamagus Highway). We are located right smack between the small, charming towns of Lincoln and North Woodstock (you can easily walk to either one). They are known for their interesting restaurants, breweries, family activities (Hobo RR, Clark's Trading Post, Loon Mountain Zipline, miniature golf, among many), shopping, and easy access to all of the beauty of Franconia Notch and the Kancamagus Highway. The Deer Park Resort itself has a Recreation Center with heated pool, whirlpool, workout room, etc., but the best thing is the beautiful 5-acre spring fed lake (with a sandy beach and plenty of picnic tables and lounge chairs). A favorite summer pastime is floating lazily on the lake and gazing up at the clouds and mountains. It's heavenly!!
As for the accommodations, our condo is has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, an open living/dining/kitchen area with pine-paneled cathedral ceiling, and a big back deck with a gas grill and comfortable deck furniture. Many of our guests have returned summer after summer. Some of them tell us that sitting out on the back deck late into the evening, after grilling some great steaks, chicken, or kebabs from Wayne's Market (and gas station) is what they look forward to most. There is also a small front porch with a small bistro set, from which you can watch the tennis matches on the courts next to the condo.
The condo is exceptionally beautifully decorated, with comfortable rustic furniture and lighting, dark wood molding, at least 20 handmade quilts on the beds and walls, lots of mountain landscapes, In summer 2017, the condo will have been freshly painted.
It is a pleasure to make breakfast (or any meal) in the custom kitchen with knotty cherry cabinets, exquisite granite countertops (with a wrap-around area with 2 stools for casual dining), stainless appliances, Calphalon cookware, 3 kinds of coffee makers (including a Keurig), a glass top stove, and all sorts of gadgets/kitchenware so that you can cook on vacation as easily as you cook at home (if you are inclined to do that!!).
The master bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms have beautiful new queen bedroom sets with comfortable beds and cozy quilts. The third bedroom features a comfortable quilt-covered double bed and twin bed, if needed. Each bedroom has its own bath with shower. The master bath also has a tub.
Other amenities include: Cable TV in the living room and in each bedroom, game systems, wireless internet access, a games closet with puzzles, board games, tennis racquets, cards, children's toys, etc., and a nice open entry area with lots of room for storage.
When you step outside the front door, you will hear the sound of the Pemi River, just a stone's throw away. Deer Park Residents can play tennis on numerous tennis courts throughout the resort and use the heated pool, whirlpool, racquetball court, fitness center, sandy beach, and lake up by Rec. Center. Lots of folks like to walk or bike around the resort, and there is a short hiking trail that goes around the lake.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU'RE THERE: As mentioned, the towns of Lincoln and North Woodstock are very charming. Great local restaurants include the Common Man, the Gypsy Cafe, Woodstock Brewery, One Love Brewery, Black Mountain Burger Company, and Sunny Day Diner. Loon Mountain is, of course, a main attraction in winter for its numerous ski trails and the most powerful snow-making equipment in NH. Snow-mobiling and cross-country skiing are popular as well. In summer, opportunities to hike, bike, mountain-bike, canoe, kayak, golf, fish, and sightsee abound. You can drive over the gorgeous Kancamagus Highway and be in North Conway in less than 45 minutes for outlet shopping. Other local attractions include moose tours, Franconia Notch State Park, White Mountain National Forest, Littleton, the Flume Gorge, Hobo Railroad, Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves, Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, The Basin, Clark's Trading Post, Mount Washington Cog Railway, Polar Caves, Santa's Village, and Whale's Tail Water Park. The NH Information Center located just outside the entrance to Deer Park Resort can provide you with information on mountain adventures for any season.

About Susan Davis and Keith Muntyan
My husband and I were looking to purchase a condo in the Lincoln area to use during the summer and fall months (unfortunately, we are no longer skiiers!). I have a brother who has a condo at Deer Park, and knowing how thorough he is about investigating anything he purchases, I knew that Deer Park must be one of the best resorts around. Also, I had stayed at his place and loved it. When my husband and I saw this unit at Deer Park, we immediately fell in love with it. The previous owners had remodeled the condo, and they had done a beautiful, top-notch job. We immediately wanted to cook in that kitchen and sit in that living room by the fireplace. We feel fortunate to have been able to purchase this unit, and we look forward to many special times there. We also need to rent our place! We have always loved to stay at B & B's when we travel, because we enjoy their homey feel and how each place has its own personality. We are trying to keep up the standards of luxury set by the previous owners and, at the same time, give the place our own personality through such things as my homemade quilts and art that we like. We hope that the surroundings, both inside and out, will provide you with a place to "get away from it all" for a little while.
Susan Davis and Keith Muntyan purchased this Townhome in 2011
Why Susan Davis and Keith Muntyan chose North Woodstock
Being in the beautiful mountains of NH is a good way to clear your head, and it's not prohibitively far away. Deer Park is literally one minute off of Route 93 in Lincoln, NH. Driving there from south of Boston can be just 2 1/2 hours door to door. We like the fact that Lincoln and Woodstock are real towns that existed long before skiing ever came to the area.
What makes this Townhome unique
As I mentioned, we looked at quite a few units at Deer Park when we were in the market to purchase and many were attractive. However, ours is really unique, with granite countertops that look like the granite from the Basin, cherry cabinets, large, comfortable furniture, and gorgeous wood blinds that give you privacy when you want it. We love the fact that our unit is an end unit, which, again, gives one a little more privacy.

Wonderful weekend. Everything we needed for 6 adults.
Thank you, Susan! We had a great weekend.
Loved our stay in this beautiful condo!
We had my husbands parents visiting us from Ireland and we really wanted to come to White mountain to witness the foliage. After long research as we were looking for 3b3b condo we came across Susan’s condo. We booked it and overall booking/communications experience was great. Susan sent us all necessary information well beforehand and was available to answer any questions anytime.
Directions to condo/key collection were very cleare so we arrived on Friday afternoon. The condo was absolutely spotless and so welcoming. We all loved handmade touches Susan makes herself like quilts, table matts, coasters and etc. Bedrooms were great,very comfortable beds and expensive bed linen, we all had great sleep :) Our girls 4 and 6 y.o. slept in the bedroom upstairs, and loved it as well, there were toys, books, PlayStation and etc. I thought that having a selection of condiments like salt, sugar, oil, spices and etc was really nice. I personally hate coming to rental property with nothing in it. There was an abundance of table/cooking wear.
Condo’s location is great, we walked to both Lincoln and Woodstock, both have some great restaurants. Keep in mind there and is no big supermarket nearby, just small ones, so get your groceries beforehand.
We really enjoyed our stay in Susan’s condo and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to our friends and really hope to come and stay there again.
Thank you so much, Nadia! As it turns out, I think you had the loveliest weekend for foliage. I had been afraid that your parents would not get to experience a true New England fall! I am so glad that our place was a comfortable fit for your family. I hope you will join us again.
Owners were amazing with recommendations. House was perfect for 2 adult couples and 2 teenagers, just enough space yet still allowed for great family time! The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. It was a great location as didn't have to deal with the Lincoln traffic on The Kam and could access many hikes without sitting in the traffic. Loved everything about this place and the owners!
Rustic elegance on the Pemmi
Loved the resort. Tennis courts right outside the door; river rafting 3 minute walk away. Unit was very nice and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds too! Everything was high quality.
Thank you for your kind words! We really have tried to make the place special. We'd love to host you again if it would fit your plans.
Condo was great. Place was clean. Quite area with everything. Would definitely stay again!
Everything was great with the condo, maybe little long of walk to get to pool , but having the beautiful cascades right there and it being quite was nice too! Would definitely recommend to anyone. The condo had everything and being nice and clean was great too! We'll be back 😊
Wonderful Place to Stay!
My family just spent a week in this townhouse and it was wonderful. I was there with my husband, two young sons, and my parents. The layout was great of the townhouse was perfect for all of us. 3 bedrooms, each with private bathrooms. It doesn't get better than that, not to mention every room has been done over and is very modern. The kitchen has everything you could need and more. Loved that it had a washer and dryer! It was a minute walk to the river and a 5 minute walk to the beach area/pool/rec center which were never very crowded. Tennis courts were right outside your door. Deer Park is a quiet, family friendly place and it is a minute drive from Route 93. It is also very conveniently located, with Loon Mountain, Clark's Trading Post, Lost River, Echo Lake, Cannon Mountain, The Flume, all within 5-20 minutes from the townhouse. I have stayed in several different condos and areas in the White Mountains and this was by far the best place/location we have ever been to. I can't say enough about the townhouse or the area it is in. The owner Susan was great and always very easy to get ahold of with any questions via email. If you are looking for a nice, clean, family friendly, comfortable place to stay with all the bells and whistles in the heart of the White Mountains, then this is the place for you!
Our condo is in the heart of the White Mountains. We also happen to be one minute from a large NH Information Center (located in the beautiful colonial white house where you get off of the highway), so take advantage of it!
We have plenty of suggestions ourselves for things to do as well.
Deer Park is right on the Kankamagus Highway (the western end). That means you are minutes away from the breath-taking beauty of Franconia Notch, with its walking and hiking trails, the Flume (a huge, natural gorge), the Cannon Mountain gondola and Ski Museum, and Echo Lake, with its canoes and beach. Drive 20 minutes north to the charming town of Bethlehem or, a little farther, to Littleton, with its Farmers' Market and artisan shops. Have lunch and a glass of wine on the veranda of the luxurious Omni Mount Washington Hotel (where the Bretton Woods Treaty was signed) and look out over Mt. Washington. The Cog Railway up Mount Washington is fun, but it's chilly up at the summit, so be prepared! There's a place to jump off of high rocks into the river along the Cog Railway Road for the daring. The drive over the Kankamagus to North Conway is gorgeous, with overlooks and short hikes to waterfalls abounding. A personal favorite hike is the Lincoln Woods, an easy walk along the river, which rewards you at the end with a wonderful picnic area with cascading water over large smooth rocks. North Conway is, of course, well known for its outlet shopping, and the town itself is very charming and full of great shops. Though we are closest to Franconia Notch, Crawford Notch is an easy drive as well, and that Notch offers some fabulous hiking opportunities as well. Our personal favorite is Mount Willard, which offers you the most glorious mountain-top view at the end. If you want, you can take a train ride through the Notch.
When we are at Deer Park, we usually take a ride down to the Lakes region. Squam Lake/Meredith is about 45 minute away. We have yet to rent a boat, but that is on our list of things to do this summer. However, we have strolled through the shops, enjoyed the view while having a glass of wine at Lavinia's, hiked the easy hike up Rattlesnake Hill to view the Lakes in all of their glory, toured Castle in the Clouds, an Arts and Crafts estate (after having lunch on the terrace overlooking the Lake), and sought out local Farmers' Markets and artisan fairs. If you are a quilter, the world famous Keepsake Quilting is in Center Harbor.
A White Mountains vacation is great for couples (there's great food -- more about that later), but it is wonderful for couples with young children. Our place has a lake and pool, but there are plenty of local activities especially attractive to children. There's Clark's Trading Post (a couple of miles down the road), with its train ride, rides, and bears; the Zipline Park in Lincoln, a nearby water park, miniature golf, the Loon Mountain outdoor activity and picnic area, the Cannon Mountain Gondola, the Cog Railway, the Hobo Railroad, and, of course, the ever-popular Story Land (across the Kankamagus Highway in Glen).
People probably don't realize how well they can eat in the White Mountain area. Though our place has a fabulous kitchen, we love to eat out, and we have found many restaurants that compare favorably to any in the Boston area. The Gypsy Cafe, right in Lincoln, is excellent, offering flavors from all over the world. The Common Man family of restaurants has a location in Lincoln, situated in an old house and barn, but it has an even better sister restaurant, the Italian Farmhouse, in Plymouth. We also love going to Six Burner Bistro in Plymouth, maybe before enjoying a show at the Flying Monkey. (We saw Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn there on our last visit). When we are in the North Conway area, we make sure to visit the White Mountain Cider Company. The Wentworth Inn and the Thorn Hill Inn are also very lovely, serving delicious evening meals and wonderful Sunday brunches. While you are at the Wentworth, take a look at the beautiful White Mountain paintings, in the Hudson River style, for sale in a room off the foyer. If you enjoy paintings such as those, you might enjoy going to the Museum of White Mountain Art, in the center of Jackson.
If you enjoy summer theatre, there is Jean's Playhouse right in Lincoln, and there is also the Weathervane Theatre in Whitefield, about a 45 minute drive.
Finally, if you are up for a drive, don't forget you can visit St. Johnsbury in Vermont very easily (less than an hour), which has the best artisan gallery I have come across in the area, and, further afield, Stowe, Vermont. Stowe has lots of art galleries, which we really enjoy browsing through.
