North Conway, NH is Perfect for Group Retreats and Events
North Conway, New Hampshire is perfect for group and corporate retreats! We have an abundance of indoor activities here in North Conway as well as outdoor things to do in North Conway, NH! There are several awesome North Conway Restaurants, White Mountain attractions that are perfect for groups and Four Seasons Lodge should be your next destination for your corporate retreat!
Well, now that I got all of that out of the way let's dive deeper into the outdoor mecca that is the Mt. Washington Valley! North Conway is a great area that can cater to small families as well as large groups. If you're looking for a new, fun place to send your company then we are right here waiting for you with open arms.
There are plenty of halls and banquet areas that you can book for your big meeting but it's the bonding and the activities that really matter! Those activities are how you build strength as a team. A few White Mountain attractions that come to mind for team bonding are Monkey Trunks and the Escape Room.
Searching for things to do that cater to large groups can be tricky sometimes--but it's well worth it if you can plan exciting things that your group will look forward to! No one wants to go to a work retreat and just go, "eh, we're just going to a banquet hall. I'll wander off on my own after or just go to my hotel and sleep..." ...that is so not exciting! Be the organizer of the year and plan activities your group will actually want to participate in.
You Bet You'll Bond While Tubing the Saco River!
If you're looking to have your team bond and relax, and it's in the middle of summer, then head outside and tube down the Saco River, go up the Mt. Washington Auto Road, go to one of our many lakes and enjoy a swim, kayaking or canoeing, or just head to any of our numerous North Conway restaurants and get your grub on.
If you have a more active group, or a lazy group that you need to kick into gear, then set up a hiking trip, go to the Flume Gorge, or if it's winter you can hit the slopes or grab some snowmobiles.
There's also plenty of golf to go around but... that's so typical. Be the exciting organizer and GET. PEOPLE. MOVING.
If you're not looking for a break from the office by going outdoors and getting some fresh mountain air then that's fine too! There's no judgement here. Just as there are some great outdoor activities there also plenty of inside ones here in North Conway! We have movie theaters, amazing food and pubs, the Mt. Washington Hotel has wonderful views, food, and balconies to sit on, the Ham Arena (indoor ice skating), New England Ski Museum if you're a history buff, and tax-free outlet shopping!
Four Seasons Lodge is the Best North Conway Lodge
At Four Seasons Lodge we have an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, 10 bedrooms, foosball, karaoke, Wii, and plenty of space to spread out and enjoy your time together. All of our space lets you get to know each other better or you can think of it as space to get away from each other but I think that on a corporate retreat that is... counterproductive.
Many corporate getaways have been held at Four Seasons Lodge and all have been very successful. We've hosted many group events like rug hooking, yoga, writers club, photography clinics, and one Tai Chi (what the heck is that?) weekend.
If you're looking to do some sight seeing then jump onto the Cog Railway, drive up the Mt. Washington Auto Road, or if you're extremely ambitious, hike. Either way you can end up at the top of Mt. Washington and enjoy the views for miles around. There are a bunch of different hikes in the area for hikers of all levels that you and your group can choose from! You can even go rock climbing up Cathedral Ledge if you have some avid climbers.
You can rent a big van and head down the Kancamagus Scenic Highway to enjoy the beautiful New England foliage, greenery, mountains, gorgeous waterfalls, and bodies of water that we have just laying around--make sure to stop for lunch in any of the small towns you pass by!
If you're ready and willing to drink with your co-workers then head to one of our breweries, wineries or meadery to enjoy some alcoholic beverages with people you consider co-workers and make them your friends - if you dare.
At the end of the day we may not be Las Vegas--but everyone has a corporate retreat in Las Vegas. Change up the scenery (literally, we're wooded and mountainous and Vegas is a literal desert), offer new and exciting activities and get your bonding on with your large group here in North Conway! We have so much to offer that you can cater to all types of personalities so that everyone in your group can enjoy themselves.
Don't forget to look into Four Seasons Lodge. We're tucked away in the woods but only ten minutes from all of the fun. We have ten bedrooms, an indoor pool and a sauna that you won't be sharing with an entire hotel, and you can enjoy North Conway the way it should be enjoyed.
