This page is a listing of "Reviewed" White Mountains Resort Condo Rentals and Time Share Exchange options from Resorts in the New Hampshire White Mountains area. These are Vacation Resorts that my Wife and I and/or our "Vacation Timeshare Exchange Friends" have used or toured on White Mountain Fall Foliage Vacations we have taken over our now over 35 years of Timeshare week exchanging and vacation resort condo rentals.
Tip You do NOT have to be a Time Share Owner to get some of the often VERY affordable Rental Deals you can find on unused Vacation Time Share Condo Rental Weeks rented directly from the Resort's Rental Management Company. (and sometimes online Timeshare Rental Sites)
- These Listings are for a fully furnished and equipped often very spacious Vacation Condo Apartment Vs just a Hotel room or suite. These are usually "Unused weeks" placed for rent by the Timeshare Owners through their Time Share Vacation Resort Rental Company.
The list here includes only Resort Condominium International (RCI) and Interval Interval International (II) Time Share Resorts since those are the two largest Timeshare Exchange Association Companies -- and also happen to be the two types of time shares we own at our two home resorts in Florida. Both RCI and II now have over 3,000 Timeshare Exchange Resorts you can choose from in each of their resort exchange networks.
We further are narrowing the Resort list down to only Time Share Resorts which have been awarded some rating distinction by their timeshare Association Company: Gold Crown, Silver Crown, or RCI Hospitality for RCI, and 5 Star rating for II (We have used it here, however the II 5 Star rating seems to be being phased out and replaced with a new "Golf Resort" rating.) These designated RCI & II Resorts tend to be the top Resorts in either Exchange Companies Resort Network, and we have almost always had a very good Resort experience at those top rated Time Share Vacation Resorts.
We have also stayed at Time Share Vacation Resorts down in the Lake Winnipesaukee area. We did have some good Resort experiences there, but found that we were always driving north to the general areas of Lincoln, North Conway, and Bartlett to view White Mountain Attractions and "Must See's" so decided it saved a lot of driving time to just stay in the heart of the White Mountains area nearer Mount Washington and Fall Foliage Viewing Drives on the 35 mile long scenic Kancamagus Highway (#112) between Lincoln and Conway.
We will "review" some of our experiences with Lake Winnipesaukee area Vacation resorts on an upcoming Lake Winnipesaukee Rentals page.

Crown Ridge Resort (RCI #2136 - RCI Gold Crown Resort)
Crown Ridge Road, P.O. Box 2296, North Conway, NH 03860
603-356-5088 - Our White Mountains Resort Top Pick , but a couple of others below were close behind.
The Crown Ridge Resort is a small 20 unit resort in private wooded area about 3 miles from North Conway. Very spacious over 1600 sq ft 2 bedroom, 2 bath, and 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath units. All have whirlpools in the Master Bath. Most of the units have a view of a small stream + forested area. Some of the furniture was showing a little age a few years ago, but the 2-bedroom unit we had was very clean. The units may have been redone by now, ask if one you are considering has.
Many activities nearby including canoeing and white-water rafting on Sako River in the Mount Washington Valley, many hiking trails, 3 options for downhill skiing, outlet shopping, plus there are many restaurants in North Conway. Resort location is about 10 miles from the east end of the scenic Kangamangus Highway #112 drive through the White Mountains over to Lincoln, which is particularly beautiful in the Fall.
They have an attractive clubhouse with an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, pool table, and exercise room, which is shared with their sister Resort, the Mountain View at Crown Ridge. They also have a tennis court, basketball court, and playground. There were no resort sponsored activities, but you really don't need any.
(The "sister" Resort - Mountain View at Crown Ridge Resort has newer buildings, but generally much smaller units.) Note that the Crown Ridge Resort units do not have air conditioning, which may be a consideration in the summer months, altho nights in the White Mountains generally are cool, and most windows in the units open and have screens + are fans.

I recommend you join the Timeshare Users Group - TUG ($15/Yr.), or RedWeek.com ($14.99/Yr.) to see User Resort Reviews and ratings + more detailed info on the White Mountain Resort Listings on this page. I belong to both and find the TUG Site generally has more Resort Reviews, as well as direct links to the RCI, II, and Vacation Time Share Resort Web Site pages.
The RedWeek Site usually has more For Sale and For Rent listings, and is much easier to navigate. They will send you e-mail alerts of new rental or for sale listings at resorts you are interested in. They also have a Vacation Rental Escrow Service available. Don't think you have to necessarily find your rental on RedWeek to use it. An excrow service is recommended if you are renting directly from an Owner Vs from a onsite Resort Management Company which will usually be a Licensed Real estate Broker.
The Mountain Club on Loon (RCI # 1358 or II # MCL)
Rural Route 1 , Box 40, Lincoln, NH 03251 - (RCI Resort)
The Mountain Club on Loon is a large four-season luxury resort, located just off of the west end of the scenic Kancamagus Highway which runs through the White Mountain National Forest.

The Mountain Club on Loon Resort has efficiency units that sleep 2 up through some "combination" 2-bedroom units that sleep up to 8. (See Resort Web Site link below for room descriptions.) Many of the units have been upgraded in recent years, ask if one you are considering has.
The resort is near many area activities and is adjacent to the ski area, plus has many onsight amenities, including indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, Sauna, Hot Tub, game room, playground, tennis and racquetball courts, nature walks, massage therapy and tanning, + a Restaurant & Lounge.

The Suites at Eastern Slope Inn (RCI #5795 - RCI Gold Crown Resort)
2760 Main St. , P.O. Box 359, North Conway, NH 03860
It is important that you get in The "Suites" at Eastern Slope Inn Vs the original old "Eastern Slope Inn" on the same approximately 40 acre grounds.
The resort is located on the edge of the town of North Conaway. On-site amenities include a glass-enclosed swimming pool, Jacuzzi, tennis courts, and game room -- all shared with the original Eastern Slope Inn. There is a nearby Lake with fishing, + Golf, and Skiing. The Resort is very handy to all of the activities in and near North Conway, NH. And you can leave your car parked at the Resort and walk to nearby restaurants.
Most of the "Suite" Buildings have units that are much larger than the Units in the original Inn -- in some newer buildings located behind the original resort which have views of the mountains to the back Vs the street in front of the original Inn building. Unit sizes range from Studios that sleep 6 up to 2 bedrooms that they say will sleep 12 -- (but you all had better be very friendly!)
Most "suite" units have a partial kitchen with a Microwave/Convection Oven combination. Ask about the view and size of the unit you are considering since there are differences. Another White Mountains Resort Top Pick .

Other White Mountains Resort Timeshare Condo Rental Options in and near North Conway, Lincoln, & Bartlett, New Hampshire
- These are White Mountains Resort options we have not stayed at, however either our "Timeshare Friends" have, or we have toured them and found them generally good. In addition, all White Mountains Resort Listings below have some type of Top Resort Designation Rating from RCI or II
Tip - Generally is always good to ask if the specific Unit you are considering has been recently rennovated and what the view is. Higher floors are generally better for the view and less noise. Might also ask if there are elevators. If summer months, ask about air conditioning in unit.
