Below is a list of our recent updates and steps we will continue to take to deliver the safest and most comfortable vacation experience possible:

Covid-19 Update


March 18, 2020

We wanted to reach out to let you know what we are doing at Path Resorts to combat the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. The health of our team and guests is our top priority as we face the challenges of this pandemic.

We have been closely following the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines and recommendations on the steps required and as a result, we have chosen to take a difficult course of action and will suspend all Hotel and Food & Beverage Operations beginning March 19– until further notice.

This decision has not come easily and we want to thank all of our owners, guests and employees who have shown so much understanding and flexibility as we work together to share the burden and lessen the negative impact of this virus.

During this suspension of operations, we will be deep cleaning all areas and surfaces in our guest rooms, lobby area, public restrooms, amenities and restaurant in preparation for the time we can announce re-opening.

We will be evaluating CDC guidelines and current NH State Regulations to determine on a week-by-week basis whether reopening is advisable and we will provide you with updates.

We hope you and your families remain safe through this terrible pandemic and we look forward to serving you again in the very near future.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you,
The Management Team
