Don’t escape winter – embrace it with the on-site activities at this mountain resort
When it’s time to put away the T-shirts and bring out the ski jackets, it’s time to book a vacation at the Steele Hill Resorts, perched on top of Steele Hill in the heart of New Hampshire’s popular Lakes Region. If it’s all about the outdoors for you, there are miles of trails for snowshoeing and hiking, a designated sledding hill, custom skating rink and a pond right on site, as well as two indoor pools, hot tubs and a poolside bar. Gunstock Ski Area is just 20 minutes away, and special events in the area include sled dog races and a pond hockey tournament. Resort suites and townhouses have gas fireplaces, full kitchens and private balconies with breathtaking mountain and lake views.
Inn close to everything that makes winter a wonder on Lake Winnipesaukee
Lake Winnipesaukee is not just for summer vacations – just ask guests who book winter getaways at the Center Harbor Inn. They’ll tell you about the exciting skiing and snowboarding and the equally great hiking and snowmobiling trails, all near the charming lakeside inn. The inn’s Winnipesaukee Winter Adventure Package comes with free snowshoe rentals and hot chocolate in your room with lake and mountain views from private decks or patios. After your adventure on the slopes, trails or on the lake (ice fishing and pond hockey!), come back to the inn to relax in the four-season hot tub overlooking the snowy harbor, or in the toasty sauna. Go ice fishing right off the inn’s shoreline, or visit a brew house or winery.
Winter is a blast in the Lakes Region, whether you want to ski – or just swim in the resort pool
At the scenic Summit Resort, close to Weirs Beach on magnificent Lake Winnipesaukee, the tradition of providing both relaxation and adventures continues in the winter. Two-bedroom suites have electric fireplaces and jetted tubs as well as private balconies or patios. A trail system next door at Prescott Farm is great for winter hiking and snowshoeing, and you’re only 10 minutes from Gunstock Ski Mountain (and under an hour from two other ski resorts). The resort’s huge Amenity Center has an indoor heated pool and water slide (and poolside bar) as well as a racquetball court, sauna and a fitness center. If you’re not up for outside adventures, drive the Winnipesaukee Lake Loop, stopping at country stores, shops and eateries. Ask about winter packages for families, skiers, shoppers and movie-lovers.
