Earlier this year, the Red Jacket Resorts invited my family to visit the resort of our choice for a weekend getaway. There are two locations of the Red Jacket – one in Cape Cod and one in North Conway. I’ve been wanting to check out Kahuna Laguna, the largest indoor water park in New Hampshire, which is located in the Red Jacket Mountain View, and only open to resort guests. Because of that, we chose the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort to visit for our review.
Disclosure: We received a complimentary stay at the Red Jacket Mountain View. All opinions are my own.
Location of the Red Jacket Mountain View
The Red Jacket Mountain View resort is located in North Conway, NH, with beautiful views of the White Mountains. If you are planning to visit the family-friendly activities in the North Conway area, it’s a great location. You’ll be located close to the North Conway Village, Settlers’ Green Village, Attitash, and Story Land. It’s really centrally located within the region.
Rooms at the Red Jacket Mountain View
Our room was an alcove room, which meant that it was a standard two-double bed room with a “secret room” – an alcove with a double bed for the kids, and a sliding door for privacy. It was perfect for us because our kids generally go to bed before we do. They just loved their secret room too – it was a total novelty for them.
In addition to the alcove rooms, there are other room types offered, including family suites, whirlpool rooms, lofts, pet-friendly rooms, and vacation homes. If you need or want more space for your family, there are definitely plenty of options.
You can also choose to upgrade to a mountain view room for gorgeous views of the White Mountains. As the name indicates, the Red Jacket Mountain View does have a spectacular view of the mountains – especially in the during fall foliage season.
Kahuna Laguna – North Conway Indoor Water Park
The highlight of the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort is a Kahuna Laguna, a North Conway indoor water park. This water park, the largest indoor water park in New Hampshire, is 40,000 square feet, and admission is limited to guests of the Red Jacket Mountain View and the Fox Ridge Resort. A separate admission fee does apply, although the resort offers package deals. Because of that, it doesn’t get overly crowded, which makes it much more fun for families.
We visited Kahuna Laguna in the afternoon of our second day there, and my kids absolutely loved it. There’s plenty of staff watching everyone, which keeps everything under control. My son loved the water tower, while my daughter had a blast riding the water slides with daddy. They could easily have visited the waterpark everyday – they just loved it!
In addition to the water tower and water slides, the Kahuna Laguna water park also includes a water basketball court, a wave pool, a 25-person hot tub, and a little kid play area.
Other Amenities at the Red Jacket Mountain View
The Red Jacket Mountain View Resorts also offers some great kids’ activities, including s’more making and storytime. There was a schedule in the lobby when we arrived with all of the activities that were offered during our stay.
There are other amenities offered by the resort, including complimentary WiFi, and a game room. There’s also an outdoor pool that is open in season.
If you’d like to eat on property, there are several options. Champney’s Restaurant is open for breakfast, brunch, and dinner, while Palmer’s Red Ridge Grille serves lunch and dinner. There’s also a poolside bar at the outdoor pool that is open during the summer months, and the Tiki Tide Cafe in the Kahuna Laguna indoor water park.
If you are interested in visiting the water park during your stay, definitely look at the various package deals that are available from the resort. Some package options include water park tickets and breakfast, an unlimited water park visit package, and a free water park package (typically offered mid-week during the off season). Package deals can definitely vary, so be sure to check their website to see what’s offered during your stay.
