Nestled into New Hampshire’s legendary White Mountains, Loon Mountain offers a family-friendly feel. With most of the mountain’s 370 acres (150ha) rated for beginners and intermediates, it’s a great place to cruise some blues. Challenging slopes can still be found, like the mountain’s longest trail, Bear Claw, a quad-burning stretch. Lodging options start slopeside, then meander into the woods and the town of Lincoln. For family-friendly skiing, stay in one of these cozy hotels in Loon Mountain, New Hampshire – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain

Private balconies in every suite sweep in views of the Presidential Mountain Range. With a kitchen and a fireplace, as well as a soaker tub that begs for bubbles, your suite is the ideal place to pour a glass of wine and relax. This matches perfectly with RiverWalk’s other business: winemaking. They pour classic European varietals chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon.

2. The Mountain Club on Loon

Ski-in ski-out suites at the Mountain Club come in all sizes, suitable for large groups and couples alike. Lap the huge indoor pool after a day on the mountain or indulge in a deep tissue massage. The Black Diamond Pub serves crowd-pleasing favorites: prime rib, pork belly noodle bowls, and green curry.

3. Woodstock Inn Brewery


Forty rooms are scattered over six houses at the Woodstock Inn, some heavier than others on the mountain cabin motifs – think four-poster wooden beds, quilts, and river-rock fireplaces. The adjacent brewery books daily tours to cover their 25-year history, finishing with samples. Taste test winter seasonals, like the Wassail Ale and Kanc County Maple Porter, while they last.

4. The Village of Loon Mountain

The Village of Loon Mountain’s roots lie with the local swim club, but it has since matured into a four-season, family-friendly resort with studios, lofts and townhouses. Resort amenities round out with two indoor pools, outdoor hot tubs, a sauna, and a fitness center. Skiers can take a free shuttle to Loon Mountain just across the road.

5. The Kancamagus Lodge

Guests receive a warm welcome at this family-ran hotel which, thankfully, is known simply as “the Kanc”. Relaxed rooms look out to the White Mountains and come equipped with coffee machines for your morning brew. Two restaurants are on-location: Brittany’s Food and Spirits serves breakfast; CJ’s Penalty Box Sports Club is open only in the evenings.

6. Wilderness Inn Bed and Breakfast

Built in 1912 by a lumber-mill owner, the Wilderness Inn has forfeited few of its country charms and none of its authentic style – taller guests will want to watch for the slanted ceilings in some rooms. Pack an appetite to make the most of the food prepared by co-innkeeper and professional chef Alan Trudell. Breakfast starts with a course of fruit salad and home-baked muffins that moves on to pancakes, French toast or omelet served with New Hampshire maple syrup, some of it spiced with apples or cranberries.

7. Deer Park Resort

Deer Park balances quiet retreat with easy access to the White Mountains. Loon Mountain is just a short shuttle ride away. The resort’s private lake freezes over in winter to become a five-acre (2ha) ice skating rink, while its massive recreation center includes cardio equipment and weights, racquetball, pool tables, air hockey and a video arcade – bring the teenagers, or just play like one.

8. Pemi Cabins


These cabins lining the Pemigewasset River seem to have fallen out of another century. The weathered gray wood siding and brightly colored doors evoke the most romantic iterations of New England. Snugly appointed with a crisp take on rustic style, they’ll just fit a couple of adults and their ski gear. Some include kitchens; others just a microwave and fridge, which is plenty good excuse to head down river to Woodstock Pie and Coffee Company for pie by the slice.
