What a place of beauty! Wherever you turn you see mountain ranges. A storm moved in one night and they way the sky took on the dark clouds was an amazing picture.

Family vacations mean a lot to me. As my kiddos are getting older and involved in more sports and with friends, I make sure our family vacations will be a great choice for everyone. The Mountain Region is my favorite place to be in N.H. There’s something about the mountains that changes everyone’s attitude, demeanor and outlook towards life and each other. The mountain views are majestic and we have found that there’s so much to do to mesh with everyone’s budget.
This week we made our way to the Mountain Club On Loon, in Lincoln. We have been busy since the day we got here. As I’m writing this, I am pleasantly exhausted from the pool, sun, river, hiking, zip lining and more with my family.
One of the things that attracted me to the Mountain Club On Loon, besides its great names and amenities, was the rooms! As a lot of you know, we have a big family and not everyone can accommodate us so easily. Here at Mountain Club On Loon , we were able to stay in a suite. Bonus as always, is a full size kitchen. I won’t cook every meal when we’re on vacation, but I do appreciate helping the cost of our vacation with a kitchen to use.
We couldn’t have picked a better week weather wise. Our first day here, we settled in and headed to the outside pool. There are plenty of lounging chairs around the pool, there’s a small hot tub outside and there are dining tables, a pool side bar and menu as well. The indoor lap pool is just off the hot tub area. (Camden, my 11 year old, is sitting next to me as I’m writing this. He wants me to make sure I tell you the pools are GREAT!) 🙂 Who wouldn’t enjoy swimming and sitting by the pool with this kinda of view! It’s easy to stay there all day and it’s a treat getting lunch by the pool and kid friendly afternoon drinks for the kids!
My son’s birthday was during our stay, and for his birthday breakfast we made sure we went to the breakfast buffet at Seasons Restaurant, located in the resort. I’m not too keen on buffets, but this one was a thumbs up! Not only do they have their everyday buffet of eggs, pancakes, bacon, fruit pastries and much more, they also had specials on the buffet. The specials during our breakfast were Blueberry Bread Pudding and an egg special too. Delicious! The price per person was surprisingly lower than what I would have guessed and they had $5 off coupons they offered at check in as well.
While we stayed here, we also ordered from their other restaurant, The Black Diamond Pub. The prices again were very reasonable. I have been to resort restaurants and left because the prices were much too high. Not the case here. My husband and son also claim that The Black Diamond Pub has the best wings they have had yet!
Other amenities available are a health club, spa, aracade, kids 12 and under ride for free on the Gondola and much more!
The Mountain Club On Loon has different rates depending on when you’re vacationing, what type room you need and they also have some great packages! Give them a call to see what would be best for you and your family this summer!
When you’re looking for fun things to do while your’re vacationing here, you don’t have to go far if you don’t want to. Right at the base of the resort you can experience Zip Lining, Bungee Trampolines, Gondola rides…..There’s so many fun and adventurous choices. I gotta tell you, I went zip lining for the first time ever and it was over a river. What thrill! I absolutely loved it!!!! Read about our adventures at the Loon Mountain Adventure Center. It’s a vacation spot, all in one spot!
