(NORTH CONWAY, NH) – Red Jacket Mountain View Resort in North Conway, NH was recently named one of the Top 10 Family Resorts in the U.S., chosen by GAYOT.com – The Guide to the Good Life and featured on FoxNews.com’s travel section. GAYOT.com explains their criteria for selection, “There’s nothing wrong with scheduling your days around your kids’ soccer games and recitals, but when it comes time to take a vacation, we believe in the fair distribution of playtime. On GAYOT’s list of Top 10 Family Resorts in the U.S., dedicated children’s activities are important, but so are golf, spa treatments and fine dining. We have selected these properties for their proximity to kid-friendly attractions and exceptional facilities, such as on-site water parks. We’ve also chosen them for the luxurious lodgings and variety of programs — some for the whole family and others that are supervised so mom and dad can enjoy a little time alone.”
Red Jacket Mountain View Resort, the only New England resort named to the list, was described as follows, “With its own 40,000-square-foot indoor water park, this wilderness resort has “family vacation” written all over it. Along with water slides and a wave pool that can be enjoyed year-round, this 25-acre property features a range of kid-friendly activities, from bonfires and family story time to movie nights and Xbox tournaments. Views unfurl across the Saco River Valley and Moat Mountain Range, and adult offerings include a full-service spa, lounge with live entertainment and Champney’s restaurant for classic New England cuisine. For more casual dining, guests can opt for poolside barbecues and family cookouts. A variety of accommodations are available: standard hotel guest rooms, two-bedroom townhouses with full kitchens and four-bedroom homes for groups of up to 10 (perfect for family reunions). Hiking, whitewater rafting and horseback riding are just a few of the outdoor attractions.
Jon Sallinen, General Manager of Red Jacket Mountain View Resort, expressed the thoughts of everyone at the resort, “We are extremely flattered and honored to have been named to this prestigious list among top resort destinations. We look forward to welcoming our returning guests and new guests in 2016.”
