They will kosher continental breakfast served with room price in range of 175 a night depends in the season ,a breakfast like you see in any kind of Hampton style or similar hotel and then they will have a restaurant open to order
thats better news since will make it affordable to so many more people

You HAVE to visit Lake Winnipesaukee on the way back. Go to these guys and rent bikes, or rent the pontoon and go jump in the lake...

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?

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).
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

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)
