Last week I headed up to a Lincoln, NH for a few days of ski & snow activities with my mom and we had an absolute blast! It was such a treat to get away with mom for a few days, not be on a set schedule, and enjoy the mountains. Staying at The Mountain Club on Loon was such a great experience and I will definitely be back again, soon (maybe for some spring skiing?!).
Our stay at The Mountain Club on Loon exceeded all of my expectations. When it comes to skiing, convenience is a huge factor for me because let’s face it: no one wants to be carrying their skis all over hells creation, especially after a long day on the mountain. Beyond being right on the mountain, there were so many other fabulous conveniences within the property including a full-service spa and a cute pub (that serves a mean cheese platter, btw!), plus the entire staff was so helpful and friendly!
If you live in New England, getting to The Mountain Club and skiing Loon is relatively easy. Both the hotel and mountain are right off the Kancamangus Highway (via I-93), so there is also plenty to do and places to stop along the way! If you’re coming from further out, you can either make the trip to Lincoln a fun, exciting road trip or you can fly into either Boston International Airport or Portland International Jetport. If you fly, you’ll have to rent a car and make the drive, so be sure to keep that in mind!
Room & Accomodations
There are a large handful of room accommodations available at the hotel, ranging from your typical room that sleeps two to suites that sleep up to ten guests. During our stay, we stayed in a suite that included a kitchen (sleeps 6) and had a small balcony off of the living space that overlooked the Kancamamangus.
Our suite had a main door which opened into a small entry way with two doors – one to the main bedroom and the other to the living space (both required a key card to enter). The main bedroom featured a king sized bed, a chair that could turn into a sleeper, a desk area, and a full sized bathroom.
One of my favorite perks of the bathroom were the hotel-supplied shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. They were made from honey and lemongrass extract, which smelt absolutely delicious and weren’t your typical hotel-supplied shower supplies. It’s the little things. Not to mention the huge whirlpool tub…… *heart eyes*
Through the second door is the living space which featured a table that seats four, a full sized kitchen, a second full bathroom, and a living room area complete with two couches, a couple side tables, and two murphy beds (one queen sized, one full sized).
Since the hotel is right off the Kancamangus and on the base of Loon Mountain, there are *so* many different things to do in the area! There are a handful of restaurants, outdoor activities, and little shops in the area that you can experience. The thing I enjoy most about the area is the variety of things to do – which is perfect if you’re visiting with a group of friends and family members that have different interests when heading to the mountains.
Staff, Service & Ammenities
Like I said before, my experience with The Mountain Club on Loon exceeded all of my expectations. I was greeted with the warmest of welcomes when I first arrived to the hotel and when I was coming and going throughout the day. A couple of my favorite amenities were the pool and spa areas, the arcade (who doesn’t love arcade games?!), and garage parking. Viaggio Spa featured the full spa experience with services from manis and pedis to salon services, body treatments, and facials. When it came to the pool area, the hotel has an amazing lap and leisure pool, a gym and fitness classes, a steam room and sauce, and indoor basketball (perfect for the men you’re traveling with!).
