the wife and I recently had the chance to escape the children and go away for our anniversary here at the Jackson New Hampshire which was in the White Mountains the place we stayed at was called Nordic village and for the price of a regular hotel room we got what's called the one-bedroom condo it has a full kitchen separate bedroom a giant living room a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and there was also a little deck off the living room now the room was nice but let me give you a little bit more about the Nordic village when you drive in you pass a little pond that offers ice skating in the winter and row boating in the Sun aside from the pond is a game room this has a pool table a foosball table ping pong and a bunch of arcade games on the other side of the road is the first swimming area there is an indoor pool with a hot tub and then outside there is not one but two pools both with hot tubs further up the road there is a really nice exercise house that has everything you might need to get a good workout in there is also locker rooms with a sauna downstairs and then there is also another swimming area with a hot tub outside of the house after getting our first good night of sleep in about four months we woke up and hit the Dunkin Donuts down the street and if it wasn't for the fact that we never get to sit around anymore we most likely wouldn't have watched Jumanji we made it out around 12:30 and headed into North Conway North Conway has a cool little main street we went around checked out the shops and then got some lunch at a place called horsefeathers we then headed to Mount Washington tackle the auto road are you doing say half price 25 I was really looking forward to slapping that this Lime Mount Washington bumper sticker on the Jeep but the road was only open halfway due to weather conditions they did however give us the sticker but I just may have to modify it a little bit the next morning Jen got a workout in while I chose to do something different enjoy some of the last kid-free moments I'll have for a while other than that I give the whole place a thumbs up you
