There is so much to DO at this all-inclusive get-away!

The Nordic Inn is loaded resort-style amenities including both indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, 3 saunas, cardio and weight equipment, racquet ball, a BBQ and picnic area, an onsite laundry facility and a newly-updated family game room with pool, ping pong, foosball, air hockey and video games.

Right in the heart of fun-filled Lincoln, NH, The Nordic is just a short walk away from great restaurants, ice cream shops, antique stores and fun activities.

Conveniently located 2 hours north of Boston, The Nordic perfect for a weekend getaway. Lincoln, NH is the gateway to the beautiful White Mountains and all of the incredible activities and attractions that they have to offer.

When the weather is warm, adrenalin junkies will love the aerial park, off road adventures and ziplining just a mile down the street at Alpine Adventures.

Less adventurous visitors will also enjoy scenic hikes, cooling off at the nearby Whales Tail Waterpark, or watching the bears perform at Clark's Trading Post just 1.5 miles down the street!

In the Fall, gorgeous foliage blankets the mountains along the scenic Kancamangus Highway, a 34-mile section of 112 world-renown for its colorful scenary. Who knows, you might even spot a moose!

Once the snow starts to fly, Loon Mountain's South Peak is literally across the street from The Nordic Inn. Loon's main lodge is just a short mile-and-a-half down the street and Cannon is only a short 10 minute drive away, offering plenty of variety for winter sport lovers. You can literally lie in bed, or sit on the balcony, and watch skiers and snow boarders take runs!

If that's not enough to keep you busy, other well-known White Mountains attractions are all less than an hour's drive away, including Mount Washington, Storyland, and Santa's Village, among others.

There is truly something for everyone to enjoy!

About Steve Calenda

My wife, Laura, and I live in Rhode Island with our son, Nick, and chocolate lab puppy, Moose. We also have an older daughter, Alli, who is living and working in Boston.

Laura and I are outdoors people who love to swim, kayak, hike and ski. We've been talking about buying a vacation place in the White Mountains for about as long as we've been together, but in between working, having kids and coaching baseball, it just never happened.

Earlier this year, our good friends, Eric and Elizabeth invited us to go skiing and stay with them at their new vacation home in The Nordic Inn in Lincoln, NH. We had such a good time that when they called us a few weeks later to tell us the condo across the hall from them was going on the market, we decided it was finally time to make our long-held dream come true. In May of 2014, we became the proud, new owners of The Nordic Inn #226! If you are in need of a bigger place, check out our other condo listing 816202 Nordic #319

Great Condo - convenient, comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was fantastic! We loved the convenience to all the locations in Lincoln and to Loon Mountain and the surrounding area. The condo is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen has all the supplies you need to cook pretty much anything. The amenities offered at Nordic Inn are nice as well - the outdoor and indoor pools, the game room and the laundry room are really nice to have so close to the condo. We had no problems with parking or noise. It was a very relaxing stay and we will definitely come back next year!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and well care for. Location is close to many restaurants within walking distance. Close to many attractions and trails.

Steve was very attentive and available via phone. Instructions were very clear as to how to get into the premises.

My family and I enjoyed the rec center in the condo, with multiple games, pools and things for our daughters to do.

Nice for space but adding some amenities would help

  • 3 of 5

First of all, Steve is very responsive as other reviews show. My mobile network was not available so I could not receive calls or text messages but when we were out of that area, I did see that he texted me when we arrived to see if we needed anything. He had also called me responding to an issue I had but again, my mobile network wasn't working so email was the only way for me to communicate.

The condo is nice for the space. We have two boys so it was nice for them to each have their own bed. Each of the two bedrooms had a bathroom.

The water temperature in the shower in the 2nd bathroom (kids room) did not seem to work. My son turned on the shower and was never able to get the water hot. The shower off the master worked fine so we all had to takes turns using that one.

My husband and the boys decided to use the pool the first night so we assumed that the Nordic Inn would have pool towels since there were only 5 towels total left in the condo for us. They did not have towels for us to use so the three of them had to share one bath towel (so that we had clean towels to use for showering). I did email Steve on this and as I said, he is very responsive but he asked me to call him and I could not. I just emailed him back telling him we would make it work.

It just would have been nice if there were plenty of towels in the first place.

The boys tried to watch a movie in their room. There was a DVD player and the closet is full of games and movies but there was no cord connecting the dvd player to the tv. Maybe we missed that somewhere.

All of the vacation rentals I have ever been in were more like hotels in that they offered cleaning services, fresh towels, shampoo and conditioner, and Kleenex. However, this one offers none of these things so you'll need to bring your own.

How you get into the building is a bit confusing. Steve mentioned a key but it was unclear to us what the key was for (It is not for the front door or the exterior door that is the closest to the room). I'm thinking it must be for the front door when it locks after 9pm (not sure though). We were locked out at one point and had to wait until someone left the building to get in.

Lastly, there was a very unpleasant smell in the building and unfortunately, it permeated the condo. I don't know if this is due to lack of usage or lack of ventilation or what but it was rough.

VRBO did not readily refund my deposit; I had to ask for it back.

Owner's Response: Thank you the review and I would like to address your comments. 1. The water temp in the bathrooms comes from the same source so I am a little confused but will look into it. 2. As for your mobile network being unavailable, I have no control over your network and as you state did attempt to contact you several times. 3. As for the towel issue, my wife and I provide ample towels for our guest and I do state in my emails if you wish to use the pool or local swimming areas it is a good idea to BYOT (Bring your own towel) 4. The DVD player is connected to the TV in the quest bedroom. If the cables are missing I will double check and make sure a prior guest didn't remove them. 5. the smell in the hallways. Unfortunately I can not control what another guest or owner does in their condos. However, i will mention to the facility director and see if the issue can be resolved. 6. Shampoo or soap. Hand soap is provided in every bathroom and kitchen. Over the years I have found guest prefer their own shampoo. 7 the keys. I send a checklist to every guest containing explicit details how to access our condo and how the key is used. Our Condo has a keypad hence no key is necessary. However, if the keypad fails a key is available and that is also explained in my checklist. As always I contact every guest via email and or text and remain available 100 percent of the time when a guest is staying at our condo. My wife and I pride ourselves on our 5 star reviews and will continue to provide the very best services available. Thanks again for staying at our property and we look forward to having you stay with us again. Steve and Laura.

The unit / property was great

  • 5 of 5

The unit was like home away from home with everything as described. We were two adults and 12 and 16 year old girls! The days we ate in was great knowing they have everything we needed for cooking, just add food!. The furniture was so comfortable. We were in the middle of everything we planned to do in the White Mountains! The amenities at this property was better then expected. We are already planning our next trip and will be looking to stay in this unit again. The owners were very responsive and provided great information.
