Snowmobile Trip Gorham, NH

 

This snowmobile trip to Gorham New Hampshire was taken with the Suncook Valley Sno Riders for their annual "Ride-in." It is a yearly event that the club offers for it's members. An entire building at the Town & Country Inn on Rt. 2 in Shelburne, NH is rented by the members of the club. This year's theme was a Vegas theme on the first floor...  Looked like Mardi Gras with all the decorations in the hallway.

 

Friday night was fun, we went to the bar where they had live entertainment and plenty of room for dancing. After that we headed back to our building. (The good news about the design of the Town & Country Inn is that the noise from the entertainment, kitchen, office, dining area, etc is all contained in a separate building, so once you leave the bar with the live band, it is completely quiet). Everyone went to bed fairly early so they could get an early start the next morning for their snowmobile trip (with the exception of a few who decided to stay up late from what I heard).

 

Saturday morning we were up and getting ready to go early, some decided to trailer their snowmobiles to Errol, NH for the snowmobiles trails there. Our group decided to stay at the Town & Country Inn and Resort (Read Town & Country Inn Reviews). We were on the trails by 9:00am. A little bit rocky near the Inn as we headed out, and a few wet spots, but it was clearly due to a lack of snow. A few more inches of snow would have made a big difference.

 

 

We spent the day riding the snowmobile trails in Gorham, Shelburne, Berlin, through the White Mountain Nations Forest, near Mt. Washington, past The Balsams and stopped for lunch at Fabyan's Station Restaurant and Lounge in Hanover, NH near Crawford Notch.  This is a restored railroad station that was converted to a restaurant, Fabyan's is located across from the Bretton Woods Ski Area. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner year-round. They also have a model trail that circles the restaurant near the ceiling. The food was good, I would say the best part was the clam chowder...  A must have at Fabyan's Restaurant!

 

After lunch we jumped back onto the snowmobiles and headed to Berlin, NH. The trail conditions were very good in this area until we got near the paper mill in Berlin where we had some rocks from the railroad bed coming through the snow, but it was only for a very short distance. The riding was very good all in all.

 

The trip was a success! We had about 85 miles of snowmobile riding, the trails were not too busy and everyone had fun!

 

On the way back home, we stopped at Fandangles Restaurant in North Conway, NH. The food was ok there, the prices were a bit on the high side, $30 for 2 people for breakfast.

Fast Facts About This Trip:
The Good:
  • Parking is excellent at the Town & Country Inn, plenty of room for trailers. You can pull right up to load and unload your luggage in many of the rooms!
  • The view is nice
  • The room rates at the Town & Country are reasonable.
  • The staff at the Town & Country Inn is very nice. Always greeted with a smile.
  • Don't miss the live entertainment at the Town & Country Inn (or the breakfast buffet)
  • The Town & Country Inn also has a pool and many other features. We didn't use any of them because we were busy snowmobiling. :)
  • Fabyan's Restaurant clam chowder
The Bad:
  • It was a little difficult getting out of the Town & Country Inn parking lot to go riding, but we didn't have much snow when we went. It was still passable, just had to go slow for a few miles. There were also quite a few exposed rocks near the inn, but again, just due to a lack of snow.
The Ugly:
  • Our toilet leaked in our bathroom, notified staff, no big deal.
Tips to Remember:
  • Extra pillows are under the TV set in the drawers at the Town & Country Inn (we figured that out on our last day there)

  • Caution: A snowmobile trail groomer travels at an average speed of only 5-8 MPH.  Snowmobile riders need to use "extreme caution" on the trails and always be on the lookout for groomers.  Many of the grooming machines are exceptionally wide and long, so you as the snowmobile driver need to give the right-of-way, and always slow down when approaching a groomer.

  • Most cell phones do not work in Gorham NH.
