You don’t have to go far to find one of the best spots for a romantic getaway in New England. Imagine snowshoeing hand-in-hand with your sweetheart amongst the glistening pines as the sun hits their icy needles just right. Snow-capped Franconia Ridge serves as your beacon as you meander through the White Mountain National Forest for a romantic picnic beside the warm fireplace at the Lonesome Lake Hut at Cannon Mountain.
Whoever decided to strap a piece of metal across the bottom of their foot and glide across a frozen pond must have either been crazy or brilliant. The history of ice skating is a bit murky, but many people believe that it originated in the Scandinavian countries over 5,000 years ago, which would make sense because those countries have some pretty good hockey players! Based on old drawings in literature, some believe that it may even date back to the Middle Ages.
For skiers and snowboarders, winter is never long enough. It comes and goes in a blink of an eye so you’ll want to get as many days as possible on the slopes. With several long holiday weekends coming up this winter, why not book a three-day ski weekend getaway with the whole family?
Every morning we get out of bed and look out our windows and feel blessed to live in this beautiful area of the world. Lincoln and the White Mountains of New Hampshire are indeed Mother Nature’s year-round playground. We love the warm summer days that just don’t seem to end, but we cannot wait until the snow starts the fall.
Here at RiverWalk Resort, we’re pretty proud of the luxury residence and amenities we offer our owners, so we decided to turn the conversation over to some of our second home owners! Check out their responses about their favorite things to do once they first arrive at their “home away from home,” why timeshare and seasonal condo ownership was the right decision for them, and just what it is about RiverWalk that makes it an extraordinary destination.
The most magical time of the year is approaching, and we all know what that means: decorating the Christmas tree, holiday parties, gift exchanges, eggnog for some and hot apple cider for others, horse-drawn wagon rides and sled-dog tours!
Right now is the perfect time to start planning a pre-holiday getaway with your family. Kick off the holiday season with a few days of time spent together on some of the most memorable holiday traditions. These activities are things you can do just once... but we think it's pretty likely you will want to repeat them for years to come.
What better way to get in the holiday spirit than to head out as a family, and work together to find and cut the perfect Christmas tree for your home? It’s time for the holidays in the mountains!

Here at RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain, we are excited about a new trend we are seeing: summer seasonal ownership in particular by retirees with active outdoor “snowbird” lifestyles.
