Last week was a pretty upsetting week in the world of travel blogging. Our awesome planned trip to the Virgin Islands was squashed because of Hurricane Danny. We were majorly bummed. We had been hyping this trip to the girls all summer long and not having it seemed like a great way to ruin the end of summer. I just couldn’t see us staying home all week, mourning the loss of the trip, so I planned to go back to one of our favorite travel destinations instead: The White Mountains of New Hampshire. Normally we stick around North Conway, but we ventured to Lincoln instead and stayed at the Mt. Club on Loon.
I have fond memories of this place from my childhood, so I was excited to bring the girls. We stayed in one of the suites for the week and there was so much room. There was a full bedroom, two murphy beds, and a sleepable sofa….plenty of space for the Monsters to snooze. There was also a fully equipped kitchen which we used daily. Some people may think it’s odd to cook on vacation, but since we are a vegan family, sometimes cooking is just an easier (and certainly cheaper) option. The Mt. Club also has many amenities including two pools and an outdoor hot tub. There is also a spa which we didn’t get to use (one of these days I am going to get to take an adult spa vacation with the hubs!)

The absolute best thing about the hotel is its proximity to all the action at Loon Mountain. We walked from our room to the adventure park where we took advantage of the all day super adventure pass. There is so much included in this pass including:
Aerial Forest Adventure Park (2-hr. session), Zipline (round-trip), Biking (2-hr. rental) and unlimited access to Gondola Skyride, Glacial Caves & Summit Adventures, LogJam Maze, Bungee Trampoline, Climbing Wall, Spider Web and Paul Bunyan’s Bouncin’ Backyard.
We had an absolute blast at the park! The ziplining was so fun and the staff was beyond friendly. My personal favorite part was the glacial caves because it is something I normally wouldn’t do, but the Monsters pushed me out of my comfort zone, and it was amazing. The super adventure pass is available through the fall and I highly recommend it….it is certainly a bargain for the amount you get for it.
Now, as the title alluded, there were some tummy troubles on this trip. Zoe Monster caught a weird 24 hour bug and got pretty sick. We decided to cut our three night stay down to two and left in kind of a hurry, not realizing that we were forgetting Lea’s blankie there in the process.I called the resort during a super busy time on a Friday night and the woman at the front desk,Cassie, found it within an hour for me and said she would UPS it home for me…..Well, Mike, the manager, contacted me and let me know he upgraded the shipping to FEDEDX overnight at no charge so little Lea would have it on Monday. They were literally dropping my blankie off at nearly 11:30 at night to make my daughter happy! I cannot say enough about this place and you would be silly to stay anywhere else in Lincoln….awesome stay….awesome people! Check out our video recap live on YouTube now!
