Family Fun at the Resort

Steele Hill Resorts is the perfect vacation destination for families. Those that have stayed with us know how much we have to offer, and for those that don’t we are going to paint the perfect picture. A majority of our rooms are set up as suites or townhouses and offer a full vacation condo experience. In many rooms you will have access to a full kitchen that includes a fridge/freezer, stove top, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. Some additional in-room amenities that our larger units offer include dining areas, full living rooms and decks with breath-taking views of the lakes and mountains.

Imagine waking up with your family and whipping up a batch of pancakes and bacon on the stove top in the comfort of your own room. After breakfast, there is always something going on or activities available at the resort so if you are unfamiliar check in with the concierge and they can get you started. The pools are a big hit, so if it’s a bright and sunny day, post breakfast head down to the outdoor pool area for a morning of fun. There is a big pool for children and adults and a kiddie pool for the young ones. There is also a playground located right by so you can lounge by the pool as your kids play.

After your morning by the pool, head up to the onsite convenience store, The Market, and grab some choice hiking snacks. Walk across the street towards the trail head and kick off your hike on the red trail. A network of over five miles of trails surrounds the resort grounds. Keep an eye out for animals such as the wild turkey and deer that often frequent the woods. If you are lucky, you might even see an owl or rabbit. Find a good spot to stop along the trail in one of the back fields or on a rock under a canopy of trees for a family picnic.

Once back at the resort, check out the activities schedule to see what is going on during the day for some family fun. Activities often include an ice cream social, candy bar bingo, making a customized, stuffed animal at Teddy Bear Mountain, or joining in on the newest activity this year, a campus-wide scavenger hunt.

For dinner, as a family head to the Hilltop Restaurant where you can sit by the large picture windows and reflect on your favorite parts of the day while eating a delicious meal looking out at beautiful views of the lakes region. Save room for dessert and head to the outdoor fire pit where you can roast marshmallows and build s’mores.

As a night cap, stop by the check in office and rent a movie to bring back to your room. Pop in some popcorn and unwind from the day how it started, with family.

Adventures by the Pond at our NH Resort

With the sheer variety of amenities at our New Hampshire Resort, who would have thought that the pond is often the biggest draw? Golfers love the views from our 9 hole course. The new, full-sized basketball courts have been a huge hit and the west indoor pool is what we are known for, but often times, on those bright and sunny summer days, visitors flock to the resort’s large fishing pond.

In part, the popularity is driven by our activities director showing kids and adults alike all of the wildlife that calls the pond home. From the resident snapping turtles to the stocked rainbow trout and the old bull frogs, Steele Hill’s fishing pond can be a great substitute for a trip to the aquarium. Oftentimes guests will get a chance to get up close and personal with the resident animals.

This year, Brianna, one of our luckiest guests, was able to catch the biggest crayfish on record at Steele Hill. While the picture doesn’t quite do it justice, this king of crustaceans measured out at almost 7 inches long. Good job Brianna and thanks for helping us release him back into the water. Future guest are bound to be in for a shock when they think they see a lobster strolling along the bottom.

Measuring Guest Satisfaction One Crayon at a Time

In the hospitality industry sometimes it’s the little things that let you know your hard work is worth every ounce of sweat. In the midst of cleaning rooms, prepping meals and checking in guests, it is easy to lose sight of the big picture. Our company goal is to provide people with a precious moment of time to enjoy with their family. We measure our success by the number of photo albums that include pictures at Steele Hill.

As a family resort, the kids are often the best judge of a good vacation. If we can send them down the road with a positive memory of their experience in New Hampshire, then we have done our jobs. That being said, we felt it appropriate to share some glowing reviews from our most important demographic of guests. These pictures were dropped off at the front desk. I hope you enjoy the artwork. We certainly did…
