OUR PLACE: Deer Park Resort is a highly sought after, well-maintained private resort located just off exit 32 on I-93 (Kancamagus Highway). Loon Mountain is easily accessible, especially with the ski season free shuttle offered by Deer Park. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath townhouse has been remodeled from top to bottom and furnished and outfitted with luxury and comfort in mind. It is a pleasure to make breakfast (or any meal) in the state of the art custom kitchen with knotty cherry cabinets, exquisite granite countertops, and stainless appliances (and Calphalon cookware). There is even a heated tile floor for cold mornings.
When it's chilly, make a fire in the wood-burning fireplace and sink down into the comfortable leather and brocade living room furniture with a glass of wine or cup of hot cocoa. The pine cathedral ceiling, dark solid woodwork throughout the unit, and rustic lighting fixtures remind you that you are in NH.
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 newly remodeled bath with shower.
The unit is filled with beautiful hand-made quilts and art. Also included is cable TV (LCD TV's in the living room and in each bedroom), game systems, wireless internet access, deck with gas grill, and laundry within the unit.
When you step outside the front door, you will hear the sound of the Pemi River, just a stone's throw away. As a Deer Park Resident, you can play tennis on numerous tennis courts throughout the resort, or use the facilities at the Recreation Center, which has a heated pool, whirlpool, racquetball, fitness center, video rental, and game room. In summer, there is a sandy beach on a beautiful 5 acre spring fed pond, and grassy area around it for sun-bathing and picnics. In winter, the pond turns into a site for ice skating.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU'RE THERE: The towns of Lincoln and N. Woodstock are very charming. Great local restaurants include the Common Man, the Gypsy Cafe, Woodstock Brewery, 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.

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
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.
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.
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!
What can I say? In a word...Fantastic! We just came back from a weeks stay in this beautiful condo. The gourmet kitchen has EVERYTHING you could need. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. There are high end finishes and touches throughout and everything is spotless. The river is just seconds away. The lake has great mountain views. I could have just stayed there all week. The rec center has a nice indoor pool and jacuzzi. There are tennis courts and basket ball courts. There is so much to do in this area I could never list it all. Absolutely fantastic. The owners were great. Thank you Susan. In fact I will be e-mailing after this to try and book another stay. Better than a five star hotel and we loved it.
We are four retired active senior citizens (best friends) who always look for a place to stay that gives us all our privacy as well as comfort and plenty of common areas to enjoy each other. This is the place. It was everything the website described and more. The location was literally about one minute from the expressway exit. This is the heart of the White Mountains and we were able to do and see everything we wanted because we were so close to it all. There wasn't anything more we could have wanted that wasn't already stocked at this gorgeous condo.
Thank you Susan and Keith for sharing with others.
Our stay was fabulous. We were blown away at the high level of quality of everything in the condo. Furnishings, flooring, decor, everything was top flight. We like to cook and the kitchen was a joy! Being there in Autumn mid-week was so quiet and peaceful. We loved the forest view from the main and master windows! The layout was excellent and each bedroom having a bathroom (a beautiful one at that) -allowed everyone privacy. Granite countertops throughout and other high-end touches make this property feel luxurious, yet the furnishings are all comfortable and the condo has a cozy, woodsy ambiance. Deer Park is lovely and we enjoyed the rec center, walking around by the lake, and the sparkling stream in back. Also the condo is kept impeccably clean! Loved every minute. Owners were very easy to deal with. 100% satisfied with our experience!
This townhouse is perfect for a fall family reunion. Plenty of space and everything is perfect. We 3 couples love to cook having the new cookware was a very pleasant surprise for this year!! Much of our visiting was done hanging around the kitchen. Coordination with Susan could not be better. This townhouse is a gem.
My family stayed for ten days in this rental and it was so relaxing. Susan has added the most beautiful handmade quilts to the walls and bedding. The kitchen is a "chef's kitchen"! We saved a lot of money by preparing our meals in this kitchen!! There are tvs in the bedrooms so family can watch different shows and there is an abundance of games and toys. My grandson put together a Star War's Lego kit. Susan has excellent tastes in books and I LOVE to read. While there I read "The Secret Lives of Bees" and loved it. My daughter also read several of her many books. I could go on but you will definitely enjoy your stay at Deer Park while living in this home-it has everything you need and much more to make family memories to last a lifetime. Thank you Susan and Keith for a wonderful vacation in an immaculate home!
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.
