If you want to experience the quintessential New Hampshire family experience then this is a great place to do so without breaking your budget. So many of the families we met have been coming here for generations which is a great way to describe the place. It is the kind of resort that families come to every year and become a tradition.
The staff are fantastic. Welcoming, accommodating and hard working. You will see the same staff running arts and crafts in the morning, towing water skiers in the afternoon and serving the lobster bake at night.
The rooms vary is size and accommodate most families comfortably. This is not a luxury resort. The rooms are clean and comfortable but do not come with the expectation of a high end resort. That said, unless you require luxury accommodations you will have everything you need here.
Activities are numerous and will have something for kids and grown ups of all ages.
Unlike many resorts, everything at Purity Springs is included at no extra charge (for the most part). Kayaks, canoes, and sports equipment are always available and we never found a time when everything was in use.
If you don't stay for an entire week, you will not be able to participate in every activity. The resort is geared towards stays of a week or more.
The food at the restaurant is hit or miss. Just like I said about the rooms, it is good food but not "great". Then again, you are coming to be with the family and not here for high end cuisine.
Choose your accommodations carefully. The resort covers a lot of area along the lake. If you have people with limited mobility, you may find it hard to get around the resort unless you are in one of the centrally located rooms.
Great resort overall and a great time to have a low-tech, outdoor experience to reconnect as a family.
