16 Things to do Without Leaving RiverWalk

Whether you’re here for a ski trip, romantic getaway, or just a relaxing weekend away from the constant hustle and bustle of life, the luxury RiverWalk Resort offers world-class amenities for all ages. From activities and a game room for the kids to a full-service spa and winery for the adults, you might find it difficult to step foot off the resort property to enjoy the beauty of the White Mountains. Of course, you can enjoy that beauty from your own private balcony!

Game Room


It’s not every day you find a full-fledged arcade in a resort, but you’ll quickly learn that RiverWalk Resort is all about the extraordinary. Catering to both children and adults, you’ll find all your favorite games in the Game Room. There’s foosball, pool, air hockey, racing games, and even prize games! There are even the classic favorites like Pac-Man and Big Buck! Hand the kids a bunch of quarters while you get a massage at the spa or better yet – join them! The Game Room is fun for all ages. Who is ready to land the new high score on Pac-Man?



Located in the heart of RiverWalk Resort, Solstice North Day Spa is a full-service day spa that will pamper you from head to toe. With a staff of professionally trained massage therapists, your tired muscles will thank you after an hour or more at the spa! Choose from their Signature Massage, Couple’s Massage, or even the Cannabliss Massage among many other relaxing options. After releasing all the tension in your muscles, your skin deserves a little pampering as well. Choose from a variety of facials and skin treatments. The spa also offers waxing, eye enhancements, nail care, and foot soaks. You’ll spend the rest of your visit at RiverWalk Resort glowing!

Wine Tasting


Nestled in the heart of RiverWalk Resort, you might think that you just stepped into a luxury resort in France or Italy because it is quite rare to find a winery in a resort in the United States. It is just one of the little things that make RiverWalk Resort extraordinary. Seven Birches Winery handcrafts classic European grape varietals and locally sourced fruits from the White Mountains into delicious wines ranging from white to red and everything in between. Enjoy a wine tasting at the Tasting Room in the RiverWalk or discover how wine is made with the Wine Tour. Don’t forget to purchase a bottle or two to enjoy later on your balcony overlooking Loon Mountain.

Resort Dining


Continue your journey through “Italy” at La Vista Italian Cuisine next door to Seven Birches Winery. With an extensive Italian-inspired menu, La Vista serves everything from wood-fired pizza to pasta to other delicious dishes that will have you saying “yum” the whole time. Each meal is served with freshly made focaccia bread and the desserts, especially the Tiramisu, are not to be missed. There are two bars, in restaurant seating, and seating available on the veranda overlooking the swimming pools. For the morning crowds, The Toast at La Vista will start your day off right with a hearty breakfast. Choose from pancakes, waffles or eggs benedict. On the go? There is also yogurt, steel-cut oats, or cereal along with lots of coffee!


lagoon pool-1


Year-round swimming is available at RiverWalk Resort for all ages! During the dog days of summer, you will be glad that the resort has two outdoor pools. The lagoon swimming pool is open during the warmer months and offers a nice gradual slope from the far end toward the center making it the perfect splash pad for the young kiddos. The cauldron fountain in the middle of the pool spays out water in every direction making it extra fun. The heated upper deck pool offers both indoor and outdoor swimming. No one wants to go outside in negative temperatures to hop in a pool, which is why the resort designed the pool so that you can enter inside and swim to the outside. Now that’s smart planning!

Hot Tubs

Because two swimming pools isn’t enough. RiverWalk Resort also has two hot tubs! One is located inside the resort while the other one is located at the end of the upper deck pool overlooking the lagoon pool. During the winter months when the lagoon pool becomes the ice skating rink, you can watch the kids skate while you enjoy a relaxing soak under the stars.

Ice Skating



There are only a handful of places in the world that can turn a swimming pool into an ice skating rink during the cold winter months. Every winter, RiverWalk Resort staff transforms the 167,000-gallon pool into a perfect sheet of ice for guests to enjoy all winter long. Bring your own skates or rent some from the resort and skate your heart out every day of the week. There is something magical about skating under the stars in the White Mountains!


fitness center 2(1)-1


The Health Club at the RiverWalk Resort is not your typical hotel gym with a couple of treadmills and few mismatched weights. The state-of-the-art gym at RiverWalk Resort rivals any big city fitness studio with all the bells and whistles. With squat racks, battle ropes, kettlebells, and more, you’ll easily meet your fitness goals while on vacation.

Fire Pits


Did someone say s’mores? Join resort guests at the giant fire pits by the lagoon pool. Available year-round, our two fire pits are the perfect place to warm up after a skate or enjoy some campfire songs during the summer months.

Summertime Backyard Fun



Enjoy the fresh mountain air right in our own backyard with games likes bocce, corn hole, Frisbee and more! Get the full experience and do some BBQ grilling or take a stroll through the vineyard and garden. Check with the resort Adventure Concierge to find out what’s on the schedule for your visit.

Movie Nights


During the summer months, RiverWalk Resort organizes movie nights by the pool. Grab your favorite pool floatie and relax in the water while watching one of your favorite kid-friendly movies. Alternatively, you can also pop some popcorn, pick up your favorite sweet treats from the local grocery store, and enjoy a family movie night in the comforts of your suite.

Walk by the Pemi

RiverWalk Resort is located on the banks of the Pemigewasset River that runs through Lincoln. Enjoy an early morning or evening stroll along the bustling stream. Don’t be surprised to see some native wildlife! If you’re looking for a bit more of a walk, the nearby J.E. Henry Trail is a nice wide and relatively flat hiking and biking trail that runs all the way to the base of Loon Mountain. It’s a great place to walk your dog! Did we mention that RiverWalk Resort is dog-friendly?

Homecooked Meal


Despite plenty of dining options within the resort and in Lincoln, sometimes you just want to stay in and cook your own food. Cooking at RiverWalk Resort is easy with the beautiful luxury kitchens in each of the resort suites. Granite countertops, stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, and all the gidgets and gadgets that you need to cook your favorite dishes make cooking dinner just as fun as eating out.

Drinks by the Pool


Enjoy the stunning views of the Pemigewasset River and Loon Mountain on the resort veranda, which overlooks the pools and resort lawn. Grab your favorite drinks and watch the sunset over the mountains while listening to the sounds of nature.

Soak in Soaker Tub


After a long day of skiing or hiking, soothe your tired muscles in your own private luxury soaker tub in your suite at RiverWalk Resort. When you’re done with your relaxing soak, snuggle under the covers in your plush king-size pillow-top bed. You’ll wake up feeling super rested for your next day of adventures.

Real Estate Tour

Take a real estate tour and discover how affordable ownership at RiverWalk Resort can be with its variety of ownership options that meet the needs of almost everyone. Just give the real estate office a call and they will be more than happy to walk you (literally) through your options.
