North Conway, NH – Cranmore Mountain Resort, in North Conway New Hampshire, continues its resort redevelopment with the recent opening of the Artist Falls Lodge, a new base lodge for the Tubing and Mountain Adventure Park. The Artist Falls Lodge features a ground level ticketing concourse for Tubing and Mountain Adventure Park activities, and a new bar and restaurant. The lodge connects to an outdoor heated pool facility that accommodates on-site lodging guests.
Located on the second floor is the new Alpine Café and Bar. The restaurant features approximately 1,800 square feet of new dining space. The Alpine Café and Bar offers quick service grab and go options along with full bar service, and expansive views of the tubing park, base area, and Mt. Kearsarge.
The Alpine Café and Bar was named after the former Alpine Restaurant that was previously located at the entrance of Cranmore.
On the ground level of the building is an outside ticketing area for the Tubing and Mountain Adventure Park. The ticket concourse features new automated kiosks so that guests can easily pick up pre-purchased Tubing and Mountain Adventure Park tickets. The ground floor also features new indoor restrooms, an employee break area, and a fitness room for Kearsarge Brook Condominium owners and renters.
“The new Artist Falls Lodge offers attractive lodge amenities and progressive food and beverage options for our guests, commented Cranmore President & General Manager, Ben Wilcox. “Tubing and non-ski attractions are a large part of our business, and we are excited to welcome guests into this new facility.”
Atlantic Construction Group, the contractor who completed Building 2 of Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore last year and will be the contractor for the new Fairbank Lodge, built the Artist Falls Lodge. “Atlantic was thrilled to be the contractor for the new Artist Falls Lodge. With Cranmore’s rich hospitality history, we are honored to be part of Cranmore's present and future development projects.” Said Todd Niemaszyk, Owner of Atlantic Construction Group
The building was designed by Archetype Architects based in Portland, ME. Archetype has been involved with Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore and will be the architect of record for the new Fairbank Lodge which is slated to begin construction in the spring of 2022.
The Artist Falls Lodge is open in winter on weekends and during holiday periods. In summer the lodge will act as Cranmore’s base for summer attractions.
