Why You Should Consider a New Hampshire Staycation

While we would all love to vacation away at least once per season, there are certain times when it just doesn’t work out. For instance, maybe you had to repair a roof this year? Perhaps plane tickets are just a bit too expensive for Aruba? Or maybe you have a new addition to your family like a puppy or a baby. Leaving them alone for an extended period or being far away may not be possible yet. Enter the New Hampshire staycation! Here are our top reasons for you to consider booking a staycation this year.


Let’s face it – staycations are just more affordable! Instead of air travel and auto rentals, you can spend your money on attractions. For instance, here are some ideas right around our Resort:

America’s Stonehenge 105 Haverhill Road, Salem, New Hampshire 03079

Canobie Lake Park 85 N. Policy Street Salem, New Hampshire 03079

Robert Frost Farm Route 28, Derry, NH 03038

Cederland Fun Center 888 Boston Road, Haverhill, MA 01835

Carriage Shack Farm 5 Dan Hill RD Londonderry, NH 03053

New England Sports Park 12 South Hunt Road, Amesbury, MA 01913

Mack’s Apples 230 Mammoth Road, Londonderry, NH 03053

The Game Room and Virtual Golf at Merrill's Tavern 85 Country Club Drive, Atkinson, NH 03811 

Wherever you choose to go within our fair state, there are really wonderful options for all price points!

Stress Relief

What is that phrase? Best laid plans? Maybe you had best laid plans to go on a long, international vacation, but something got in the way. Often times that sort of situation leads to an impulse to not go on vacation at all due to a lack of planning time.

That’s a mistake. We all need to relax from time to time and a staycation will allow you to get away to a location where you won’t have to deal with washing dishes, doing laundry, and so much more. Give yourself a literal break and book your own restful time even if it’s just 10 minutes down the road!

Shorter Travel

Does this sound familiar? “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? When will be there?” Yes parents, that is the all-too-real sound of your little ones demanding an exact ETA as you curse the three-hour drive ahead. Don’t let this happen to you! Go somewhere within an hour of your house!

Choosing that option will not only calm your nerves, but will also provide you with an out if your kids decide they can’t sleep in an unfamiliar location (you know it happens!) Spend less time in the car and more time with those you love.
