Title: New Hampshire Master Thread
Post by: Goldmine on June 15, 2010, 12:52:01 AM
I want to go on vacation in the summer to Bethlahem, New Hampshire. What are some ideas of things to do? What about a nice place to stay near the frum community?
Title: Re: Bethlahem, New Hampshire
Post by: jack on June 24, 2010, 10:21:51 PM
me too, anyone?
Is the kosher hotel decent?
Title: Re: Bethlahem, New Hampshire
Post by: Crazy tools on June 27, 2010, 09:29:35 AM
the kosher hotel there is worse than the capital hotel in lkwd (aka crapital hotel) maybe look into staying somewhere else, loon mountain area in linclon nh is very nice & there is a minyan factory for all minyanim

I just came back from the White Mountains. We stayed in Lincoln, NH, which was very nice and would recommend staying there. The locals even say that Lincoln is the new Bethlehem...

Things to do:

Almost everything is outdoors so you'll need nice weather.

* Mt Washington, beautiful views from the highest point in the northeast - 6288 ft.. We came on a sunny day and had 80 mile visibility. There are several ways to get to the summit:
**Mt. Washington Auto Rd; Drive yourself ( $23 + 8 per pass.) or take the stage couch.
**The Cog Railway.
**Hike.
Make sure to check the weather at the summit before you go up. Also, the Auto rd is very narrow with no guardrail, and can be quite scary driving up. They don't recommend it if you are afraid of heights (I am, and still had an excellent time).

*Glen Ellis Falls. It's about a 10 min. drive from the M.W. Auto rd. A short easy hike down the Ellis river brings you to a beautiful 60 ft. falls ($3).

*Kancamagus Scenic Byway. Passes through the heart of the white mountains with beautiful scenery. At some point you see a sign that says "No Gas Next 32 Miles". There is no cell coverage either. There are several lookout places to stop and take in the view. Also you have a good number of hikes with falls, and several camping and picknick areas. The hikes are easy for most although there is quite a bit of climbing to do. You'd have to be very careful with small kids.
Among the places we hiked there:
**Sabbaday Falls.
**Rocky Gorge.

Right near Lincoln you have Francania Notch. In there you have, aside from magnificent scenery,

*The Flume Gorge. A 0.3 mile hike up the flume that takes you to a 90 foot falls (in several stages, not one big one). You walk bet. a  gorge that gets continuously narrower (12 ft.) and higher (60 ft). This is one of the best things to to IMO. We saw people with kids and the elderly doing the hike. Charge is $13 per person. You can also upgrade the tickets to take a cable car about 4000+ ft into the mountains which is supposed to be very nice but we did not do it because the mountains were in a cloud at that point. There are also several other places to take a cable car up nearby.

*There is the "Old Man of the Mountain which collapsed in 2003 but people still go to see the spot were it once stood.

*Clarks Trading Post, in Lincoln. They have many things to do especially for kids. They have black bears putting on shows and Segways among many other things.

*Mountain Sliding.

*The Conway scenic railroad.

*ATV's in Berlin, and Lincoln. The one in Berlin said he charged $75 for two hours min.. The one in Lincoln charged $79 for a one hour guided tour. Does anyone know if these prices are good? We did neither.

People are generally very nice and helpful there.

We stayed in the Franconia Notch Motel in Lincoln. they had nice clean rooms, AC, mini fridge and microwave, and best of all, a river right in back that can be seen through the window. We climbed the rocks and chilled right in the middle of the river. They motel is a bit dated but everything is great there. We brought all our food from home.

Thanks to Dan I got a copy of the Lonely Planet guide to New England which is were we got most of our ideas from, including the motel. I also took Frommer's and Eyewitness books but Lonely Planet was all we needed.

i just got back -stayed in  loon clearbrook.  Booked through a jewish agent in lkwd - adveritised in the back of the hamodia same price as loonres.com but u support a fellow jew.
check the weather for no rain also do not let them talk you into a no air conditioning place when the weather is scheduled to be in the 90s we came back early because of it.
I wanted to stay in the hampton inn in littleton but was no availability.
Also, http://www.lincolnnhminyan.com/ has info on where to stay and what to do.
we did loon mountain
storyland and mt. washington - beautiful drive up but don't forget your sweatshirts its very windy up there
clarks on day3 and left early our place was stifling with no ac.

I get the impression, that Lincoln is the place to stay (next year of course), as opposed to Bethleham. Is that true?

Also I see that Jack mentioned that he wanted to stay at the Hampton Inn in LITTLETON, but there was no availability. Is it near Lincoln? How is it with minyanim? Is the Hampton Inn the place to go?

I'm asking now, while New Hampshire is still fresh on the minds of those that went this year.
Title: Re: Bethlahem, New Hampshire Master Thread
Post by: Avid Reader on September 02, 2010, 11:49:20 AM
I haven't been to the other places, so I can only speak for Lincoln. It does seem to be better price wise then Bethlehem, and it is near most of the attractions.
Title: Re: Bethlahem, New Hampshire Master Thread
Post by: jack on September 02, 2010, 12:13:05 PM
The ++ of bethlehem is kosher food - restaurant and grocery in the kosher hotel.
The hamptons is close to bethlehem and had a tent for minyan on grounds.
Wherever you stay you will need to drive (1 hr) to some attractions and be close to others.
Price will depend on how large of a house/room(s) you need to accomodate your family/group.

We were just in Lincoln, NH this august. We stayed in The Lodge was very nice, $550 for the whole week. Had one bedroom with a Queens size bed, and a couch that opens into a bed, plus there is room for an airbeds. We booked it straight from the owner. There was a deli that sold kosher food right there. There were a ton of frum people and a lot of minyanim, it was bein hazmanim time!

The minyan is located in the deli at the bottom of Loon Mountain, I think they have shachris usually until about at least 9:45. I think there might be a minyan this Shabbos at the Nordick Inn, which is down the road from Loon Mountain. Anybody know if there is?

Any recent TRs on New Hampshire? TIA

Just got back from NH. Was there with wife and two small kids for four days.
Stay: Mountain Club on Loon in Lincoln.
Eat: schlepped along crock pot, sandwich maker, a couple of disposable grills and of course food.
There is a small deli in Lincoln that sells some kosher products such as milk, cheese, cold cuts and more.
Attractions we did:
Loon mountain: nice 4 person gondola lift, trails at the paek, observation tower and more.  This is actually located on the hotel property we stayed.
Mt Washington auto road: very nice 8 mile drive up Mount Washington, scary narrow road with two way traffic, amazing views all the way to the paek.
Clark's trading post: nice park with bear show, scenic train ride, circus and more. Kids loved it.
Storyland: fairy tale theme park, lots of rides. Kids loved it.
Canon mountain tramway: 70 person tramway with nice views, at the peak you can see as far as Canada on a clear day, trails and coffee shop.
The Basin at Franconia notch state park: nice trails along waterfalls that has caused granite potholes.
We missed many other nice thing due to lack of time and little ones that joined along.

I was told years ago by the owner that they were building a new hotel right next door and I did see a structure in the beginning phases of construction.  That being said, I don't know what progress they have made, if any.  When I last passed by it didn't look like there was any active construction going on.

As in something that is not right next door to the old hotel?  I was told that the new place was going to be right next door - then again this was years ago and maybe things have changed.  Try calling their number.  When I last tried to call it wasn't in service.  Despite the old hotel being a dump and it being pricey, we still enjoyed staying there and the heimish food was great.

Yes, but the hiking may be a challenge... and he will probably be cold on mount washington if you decide to do it :)
the main issue is the hiking as that is the nicest part (in the white mountain national forest) & it wont work with a carriage. However there are many nice things to do with a toddler there. Boats, pool, etc.

Lincoln is more than 15 minutes from Bethlehem, closer to 30. And the Lincoln minyan is not in Loon Mt. club as it's been in past years. The web page said they had a new spot in town in Lincoln, I believe on Main Street, not walking distance to Village of Loon, strange to see the web page is now down.

We went up to the White Mountains from July 2 (Sunday)- July 5 (Wednesday) and had a BLAST.

- I went up with my wife and 3 kids (ages 5, 3 and 1) so all activities needed to be age appropriate.
- We stayed in Lincoln, NH at the Days Inn. We rented a 3 bedroom, full kitchen and living room, 2 porch cottage- was quite affordable-
   especially when booking thru Ultimate Rewards with the 50% travel bonus. Clean, very friendly staff and there is a minyan on site (times depend on participating minyan goers). There is also separate swimming (1 hour for men and 1 hr for women) in the morning.
Activities:
-  Polar Caves. About half hr from Lincoln (on the way up from NYC so it's a nice activity to do on the way up) My 5 yr old and 3 yr old
    loved it and most caves were even doable with baby in baby carrier. Great activity- they have animals in cages to feed as well.
- Clarks Trading Post- 5 minute drive from Days Inn. Great place for kids- they have a train ride, water slide, bear show, cute museums,
   splash boats etc.
- Franconia Notch- Flume Gorge. 5 minutes from Days Inn. There are a number of things to do in the Notch but we just did the Flume.
   The full hike is about 2 miles up and down, but they have an option to take a bus a half mile and you only need to do a 1 mile hike
   round trip (and then take bus back). My 5 yr old and 3 yr old did it with no problem and baby went in baby carrier. Beautiful hike with
   waterfall and beautiful brook.
- Story Land- in Glen NH. 1 hour drive from Days Inn. Unbelievable amusement park (and the drive there is spectacular!) for kids. Kids
   absolutely adored it.
- Loon Mountain. 10 minutes from Days Inn. There are many things to do at Loon. We just took the Skyride to the top and included in
   the ticket are the Glacial Caves (similar to Polar Caves but more difficult with the baby carrier), observation deck and some hikes and
   playground (not  a great playground). Cafe up top and picnic benches too. Really beautiful views!!
Food:
We brought our own meat and grilled every night (brought a portable grill). I am told that the Price Chopper in Lincoln sells some Kosher items but we didn't go.

Highly recommend!

Thinking of going for shabbos, is it walking distance to the minyan there? Also how were the accommodations there?
Title: Re: Bethlehem, New Hampshire Master Thread
Post by: Neil on July 10, 2017, 09:50:24 AM
The Lincoln minyan is at the days inn so it is very convenient for shabbos. We rented a 3 bedroom cottage and it was very clean and functional- not beautiful but very comfortable- there are no phones (there are phones in the main part of hotel) in the cottages and the cell phone service (at least for t mobile) was not very good. There's separate swimming for 2 hours a day in the morning which is a nice perk too. Overall- I would stay there again

Just to add to the other ideas that were shared-

If you go along Rt 91, stops you could make are Yankee Candle Factory (on route), Ben & Jerry's factory (off route but not too much), Green Mountain Coffee "factory" (off route and not worth the diversion, except that it's less than 10 minutes away from Ben & Jerry's if you're stopping there anyway).

Along Rt 93, the Budweiser factory tour is pretty good (and it's fine to bring kids along).

Would it make sense to go to either the Element Hanover in Lebanon or the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel (both are SPG hotels and I have enough points for a full week)? Or are they both too far away from anything I might want to do? (keep in mind that I'm looking to go somewhere nice with using as little money as possible and relaxing as much as possible)

seems like most of the attractions are in Lincoln area or within driving distance so seems like that would be a good place to stay but don't know if there's a minyan somewhere near by ?
i don't mind bringing food along but i would want to know there somewhere to get stuff/eat just in case

where would you recommend staying ?
do tickets to any attractions need to be purchased in advance?

Chabad of Lincoln usually has a minyan in the Sumner, last year it was in days inn Lincoln, but only in July and August.
Regarding purchasing tickets nothing is needed in advance, if you're going with kids - last year I saw a guy bought a book somewhere online with all local attractions, that has like buy 2 adults and kids enter free etc, but no info where to get that

I've spent a fair amount of time rolling around the white mountains.  It is obviously harder to drive anywhere with an RV. That said, I have seen few places in the White mountains that you really cannot go with an RV.

Fun spot arcade in Laconia NH. Old Sturbridge village in MA (they are having their major army re-enactment today). Sonnyís place in Somers, CT. Cabellas in East Hartford CT is worth an hour or two between the shooting gallery, the animal displays etc.Waterbury has a pizza shop with decent food and prices (donít expect to find more than the basic pizza and fries) that will break up the trip a bit. East Rock Park in New Haven CT has picnic areas with grills and a fantastic overlook- great place for a bbq.

Thanks! Not into museums at all, maybe the Sonny's place, but not sure if good for smaller kids? Shooting Gallery also not ideal, but is the aquarium anything to write home about? Pizza /BBQ spots are perfect for breaking up supper time, thats definitely a winner! Please let me know about your feedback on Sonny and Aquarium, and if have any other place/ideas.

Sonnyís is fantastic; well run with relatively reasonable prices, and enough variety of indoor and outdoor attractions to appeal to kids of all ages. The aquarium in Cabelas is just a few oversized fish tanks; the stuffed and mounted animals all around the two story mountain scene complete with a waterfall is the real show. Itís not a half day trip though- more of a stopover.

Is there any chair lift opened in the winter that lets you go down as well, without having to ski down ?

Iíve been to New Hampshire (Lincoln) several times before during the week around Bein Hazmanim and noticed signs for Shabbos Minyanim at the Village of Loon, Forest Ridge, etc. Can anyone who has been there for Shabbos fill me in on the best way to find a Shabbos compliant ( locks, kasherable oven etc.) rental for a few days during Bein Hazmanim within walking distance of one of the minyanim? Thanks.

I took a pic of the sign. There were half a dozen Shabbos minuanim, but I donít know my way around those places so Iím hoping someone who does can fill me in how to find a rental that works for Shabbos.

If you go bein hazmanim, there will definitely be multiple minyanim in the popular areas such as Village of Loon. You won't know exactly where until just before (unless you volunteer to host), but if you stay there, you'll definitely have a minyan in close walking distance.

We just returned from Lincoln, NH. We stayed over a Shabbos. It was a wonderful vacation and we would return tomorrow if we could! It was quiet, calm, relaxing, and peaceful.

Lodging: we stayed at the Village at Loon Mtn. We were in a 2 br + loft, townhouse. It looked like a camp cabin from the outside, and was dated, but had ac (3 units), and a full kitchen (self cleaning oven). It could have used a deep cleaning, but it was ok. Next time I'd request they wash the bedspreads and clean the kitchen before we arrive. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We had some minor issues and maintenance took care of them, quickly and with a smile. They knew about Shabbos (the pool desk allowed my husband to take a bottle of advil and pay on Sunday). Only problem, a power outtage Friday night lasting for 12 hours. Not the hotel's fault, but not pleasant. THere are 2 indoor pools and 2 outdoor, not kept up well, but usable. They have a lovely kids playground, lots of tennis courts and a basket ball court (and outdoor chess set). Note: you can pay for maid service. IF not, you can take your linens to the laundry and exchange for clean ones. Due to the wildlife in the area, all garbage must be taken to the dumpster (a 2 minute drive. No trash can be left outside. At night it was completely quiet.

Davening and Shabbos: Weekday minyanim are at the Days Inn in N Lincoln - a 10 minute drive. There are no shabbos minyanim there. My husband went and it appears they usually have a minyan during the summer (except during the 3 weeks). My husband signed us up to host the Shabbos minyanim. There was only one Shabbos minyan when we were there. (July 5-6) We had about 15 men (chassidim, Persians, Mod Orthodox, vacationers and people who live nearby all year). Chabad provided a sefer Torah, siddurim (with summer Parshiyot), and someone to lein. There is no eruv in the area, so everyone left their stuff in our unit (not a problem, plenty of room). Someone provided cookies and bourbon and my husband provided SM Scotch - so there was a kiddush. Maariv Saturday night was a 10 pm - so everyone could drive back after Shabbos and pick up their stuff. The power outtage made for some hot davening - but some men davened from the porch.
We were told the Days Inn becomes a 'minyan factory' after tisha b'av and there are many shabbos minyanim.

Kosher food: The 24 hour Price Chopper in Lincoln is small and can be very crowded. At the end of the first aisle there's a narrow cooler containing CY milk (all 3 colors), CY Yogurt, CY cream cheese and Millers cheese. The store carries have pareve bread and rolls, (hamburger buns reg and whole wheat, Italian bread, ciabatta, etc). They have many of the kosher products you'd find in any grocery (pasta, canned products, etc). They had a few packages of Meal Mart uncooked frozen hamburger patties. No other kosher meat is available in Lincoln.
If you need kosher meat or chicken - stop in Brookline (suburb of Boston.) They have kosher products.
If you drive the Kamakagus Hiway (which you MUST do), you'll end up in Conway. Drive 10 minutes to North Conway and there are 2 large groceries, Walmart, etc). They don't have kosher meat or CY products, but when I return I'll do my major shopping there. It's a hour from Lincoln - but it's a beautiful drive.
The dollar store in Lincoln is well stocked - picked up a crock pot there.
If you go out late at night (after 10 pm), you'll find the streets are empty, but beware of moose.

Sights/Attractions:
There are many many things to do for people of all ages. There are trails, hikes, and camping for those who love nature. There are canoes, kayaks, tubing and motorboating for water lovers, there are multiple water parks, amusement parks, ropes courses, gondolas up mountains, and zip lines. There are moose tours.  There's biking, atv-ing, and several scenic (and entertaining) train lines. There are numerous antique shops (N. Conway) and lovely shops to explore (N. Conway). There's Mt Washington (highest peak in the eastern US- which we didn't do). And scenic drives thru the mountains, which are beautiful. New Hampshire has no sales tax; there's outlet shopping (N Conway) and numerous discount liquor stores. This is all in addition to the usual swimming pools and hot tubs at the hotels/condos.

We drove the Kamakagus Hiway several times. Stop at the scenic overlooks, enjoy the beauty of Hashem's creation. Stop towards the end of the drive and wade in the freezing water (there are several places to stop with parking areas). Beware of cars parked on the road. There are many trails, camping areas, etc. It seems that people park on the main street if the area is filled. It is not a scary drive. There is NO place where you're 'on the side of the mountain' or on a cliff. It's full of curves and requires careful driving, but it's not scary. There is no cell phone service, for most of the 40 minute drive, (make sure you have gas). Watch kids in the scenic outlooks and their bathrooms. (Toilets are a rather large hole with a seat, with a nasty drop)

We hiked the Flume Gorge. It has some uphill areas and lots of stairs, but easy enough for out-of-shape 60+ year olds to do it with only a few rest stops. It's beautiful. Hold tight to young children - the railings are not meant to restrain them.

Conway Scenic Railway. We took a 1.5 hour train ride. Beware of the authentic steam engines- if you're in the coach seats, the windows are open and soot blows in. In spite of that, it was lovely and relaxing. There are rides without steam engines, check the schedules.  A must for train buffs. The station is in North Conway. There is also a short train ride in Lincoln.

We were there for the 4th of July and enjoyed sharing in the parade on Main Street. It's that kind of quaint town.

Bethlehem- Arlington Hotel - We ate dinner in the hotel one night. The hotel lobby is lovely. We were not impressed with the food - especially for $70 a person. It is not a restaurant (which we knew in advance) - there's no choices and no 'menu'. Reservations at the door were $80, if you call in advance (we called that day) they're $70. Our waitress was wearing ripped jeans and a t-shirt.

Lincoln is a 2-2.5 hour drive north of Boston. There's no train service to Lincoln. We flew to Boston and rented a car. We stopped in a grocery (in Somerville, just outside Boston) and picked up some supplies. We brought frozen meat and chicken with us. The other nearby airport is in Manchester, NH.- those flights were extremely expensive.

We did a lot of driving. Things are far apart. Bethlehem is 40 minutes north of Lincoln.
The people in the area are nice - they stop for pedestrians to cross the street, and they stop to let you pull out or make a left turn. The scenery is magnificent and we plan to return.

Lost River and Clark's Trading Post are wonderful for kids. Also try to find a short hike that's appropriate for their ages - Flume, Gorge, Sabaday Falls, many, many more. Also take the lift to the top of Loon Mt. and do the caves and activities at the top.

Weíve done the Basin in the past, which was free, and nice. Is it worth paying for Flume Gorge for a family of six, or is it pretty much the same? Thanks

Clark's is awesome for any age storyline for the sub 12 set loon for above 6. I did all with all ages but just my take....
