Looking for somewhere convenient to stay on your White Mountains escape? Join the club. Mountain Club on Loon Resort & Spa, to be specific, which boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, in addition to a great location. Whether it’s a comfortable room, a relaxing spa treatment or a filling meal that you seek, this family-friendly Northeastern stay has just what you need when you’re off the slopes or trails.
Neither of which is too far. Outdoor adventure is abundant in this part of New Hampshire, from seasonal moose-scouting tours to year-round zip lining. These are both driving distance, but other activities are even closer; Mountain Club is the only ski-out hotel in all of New Hampshire, with gondola rides available in summer, too. And complementing the property’s health club are a tubing run and climbing wall, right outside your door.
Rooms and suites
Your abode is a comfortable base in between your excursions into the outdoors, complete with a cable TV with movie channels. Suites are larger than the King Club rooms and include a separate bedroom and living area (which has its own queen, pull-down bed, plus a double pull-down bed), as well as two full bathrooms, a dining area, balcony and well-equipped kitchen.
Start your day with a mountain buffet breakfast at Breakfast at Seasons, then enjoy ski-lodge fare at Black Diamond Pub, or a poolside cocktail in the warm weather. A kids’ menu is available, and there are apres-ski wine and cocktail specials for grown-ups in in winter. Private dining can be arranged for larger groups.
Viaggio Spa and Wellness Center is inspired by Europe and offers massages, facials and body therapies, as well as manis, pedis and other salon services. The presence of a well-appointed health club means that you can enjoy a brisk game of squash or racquetball, or a few laps in the pool, as well.
New Hampshire’s White Mountains are known for their skiing, hiking and biking terrain, which is just what you’ll like about staying at Mountain Club on Loon. As the only ski-out hotel in New Hampshire, the resort puts you right next to the gondolas, which continue running for scenic rides in summertime. There’s also a tubing course, plus a climbing wall; options in the larger region include zip lining in the treetops and going on a moose tour through the woods. Regional-theater shows and dinner-train outings can also be arranged.
How to Get There
Shout out to Ed and the rest of the front desk for excellent customer service!.Whether on the phone or in person they were genuinely friendly and very knowledable about the resort and surrounding areas. Although check in is at 4 we were encouraged to arrive earlier and enjoy the amenities if our suite was not ready. We loved the unlimited (included in our package) gondola ride to the spectacular mountain top, gorgeous foliage this time of year. We then enjoyed a cocktail in the pub/restuarant. We looked over the dinner menu ($25 credit included in our stay) but dined elsewhere simply because it was highly recommended to us by friends. Pool was obviously closed for the season but people were enjoying the hot tub. Our suite was very clean, spacious with a fully equiped kitchen. The mountain views from the balcony and the private bedroom were stunningly beautiful. Also had 2 murphy beds, 2 televisions, 2 bathrooms, 1 with a jetted tub, total relaxation! We did not try the spa, (another $50 credit with our stay) but the voucher for buy 1, get 1 breakfast was delicious. Hot and cold stations around the restuarant. Garage parking was also a plus.Check out literally took 60 seconds with the fun front crew! We'll be back.
Stayed here as part of a New England Tour. Service was good. Rooms were spacious and the kitchen as clean. The rugs needed a good scrubbing. Shower could have used a grab bar somewhere. Murphy beds were fine if you like sleeping on a very, very, firm mattress. Sofa and chair in the room were very uncomfortable. Some of the food was very good and others were pretty bad. Had the breakfast buffet 2 days. Fruit, smoothies and breads were good. Hot foods were lacking. Hot potatoes were identical to those served with dinner at night. Pancakes were rock hard on the bottom and mushy on top. Nothing on the buffet line was really hot - just luke warm. Lobster dinner was served the first night. I can't eat lobster so chose the chicken and rib alternative. The ribs were tasty. The chicken was under-cooked and under seasoned. Both of us who had it at our table of 8 ate only the ribs. Opted not to have the offered buffet the second night.
The views from all areas of the hotel are marvelous.
Second stay at this property. Rooms are nice but not the most comfortable pull out beds. Kitchen is very nice, clean and room is spacious. Towels were soft but bathroom space is limited. Breakfast buffet was very good.
