more abundant than rocks on the Saco River!
BARTLETT VILLAGE TO THE GLEN INTERSECTION OF 16 & 302:
The first stop is
which is one mile west on Rte 302 just before the school. They do a
very good breakfast and lunch as well as a large stock of grocery items.
Continue west for a half mile on Rte 302 and you will come to
Cabin Fever Restaurant. Trip-Advisor reviewers give it five stars.
Specialty is seafood; fried whole belly clams anytime. I had the
Platter for about $20. It's awesome and enough to take some home for a late snack.
Decadent desserts too. Other menu items from burgers to chicken and
pizza are in the $12, range.
It's worth coming to Bartlett just for some
Almost across the street from Sky Valley is
Trails End Ice Cream Shop. Great ice cream, reasonable prices and a great
kids playground. Within a half mile past
Crawford's Pub at The Grand Summit Hotel which is located at the
base of Bear Peak Ski Area. Menu looks interesting, but I haven't heard
much about it, good or bad. I haven't eaten there yet, so I'll reserve
comment. Then we have
Matty B's Mountainside Cafe
is a Pizza and sandwich place and The Food's great too!
See Matty's Menu. A mile or
so past Matty B's and near the Bartlett Covered Bridge find
Josephs Spaghetti Shed. Everything is home made and in addition to spaghetti dinners
they have pizza and other Italian delights. If Italian isn't for you
try shepherds pie or baked beans and dogs. I'm told The
White Mountain Cider Company
is absolutely wonderful. They do Dinner in a brand new facility. You
will find it just 3 Miles East of Sky Valley. They also operate a
small deli and convience store right next door. The
Red Parka Pubis a steak house with salad bar, and a wide variety of main courses.
Children are welcomed with their own special menu. The Red Parka also
has a lounge with live entertainment.
which also houses the Glen Post Office has groceries, beer,
wine etc and A cafeteria style eatery that is a popular lunch stop for
local workers and truckers. It can be real busy during the noon lunch
hour. They are open till 11 p.m. Also in this same neighborhood is
that serves up tasty Mexican surprises. and
specializing in Lobster either cooked and ready to eat, or alive and
readyfor you to murder by your own devious methods. They Also sell a
wide variety of other fresh seafood items, mostly uncooked, for you to
prepare at home. Just up the street from Patch's Market is a
at the Junction of Rte 16 and 302, and don't forget the appropriately
Glen Junction Restaurant
They are best at breakfast and lunch. While you wait you can watch the
model train travel around the ceiling. From the rt 16/302 intersection,
proceed about a mile east, and find
DONUTS. You know what that's all about.
If you hook a left on to Route 16 North you will pass by Storyland in
about half a mile. Just past
on the right is Kringles
another place serving up pizza and subs in a convenience store setting.
If you continue on another three miles you will come to Jackson. Drive
thru the covered bridge and look for
Yesterdays, it will be on the right and has a super breakfast that
they don't mind serving all day long. The
Thompson House Eatery
is also in Jackson. On the menu is the best stir-fried veggies, or a
great assortment of special entrees that are prepared with an
imaginative touch. Only they can take a meatloaf and make it something
simply special! Almost across the street is
J-TOWN DELI, a super choice for breakfast or lunch along with quite
an assortment of specialty groceries. Proceeding down Rte 16a, right in
the center of Jackson is The
I have not tried it out yet. Traveling up Rt 16b, up and over the
mountain, in about 3 miles is
Whitney's Inn at the base of
Black Mountain Ski
Area. You can get roast duckling among other things. It's another
place where you don't need to go if you're on a tight budget, but for a
special night, it's an excellent choice. Marty and Pam Sweeney, who made
Wildcat Tavern Famous have a new endeavor at the Base of Black
Mountain in Jackson at the
Shovel Handle Pub. Back down in the Village, at the junction of 16
and 16a, For all you Irishmen (or wanna-bes) out there the
Shannon Door Pub
is up on the hill, The Mulkerns are always busy cooking up some basic
Irish delicacy. Sometimes Corn Beef and Cabbage is on the specials
board. They also serve up a great pizza. Be sure to walk right up to the
bar to tell em Sky Valley sent you... Also in Jackson is
The Red Fox
Pub in a huge new building almost across the street from the Covered
Bridge in Jackson. They do Breakfast Lunch and Dinner. Their Sunday
Jazz-Breakfast Buffet is spectacular...be early (but the Jazz doesn't
start till 9a.m.) or prepared to wait a bit to be seated. Judging from
the number of cars I see there I'd have to assume it is still as good as
ever, (since I haven't been there yet.). Did I mention
Mountain House. Its one of those grand old hotels that has
gracefully survived the years. It is a great place to take that special
someone for a special nights dining. While mentioning the fancy places,
one of my fussy friends always goes to
Inn at Thorn Hill for the North Carolina striped bass and truffle
scented sunchokes (whatever they are). The setting and atmosphere is
sublime and I'd highly recommend it if you're trying to impress someone
with your good taste. For a nice breakfast or Lunch in a country store
type setting, try the
next door to the Golf Course Maintenance building, right on Main
Street. Super sandwiches and bakery products. If I counted right that's
more than TWENTY PLACES and we haven't yet traveled ten miles!
Good Food Along The Way: If you happen to be near
Fishkill NY on Rte 84
The 84 Diner is definitely worth a stop. Open 24
Hours a day. Huge Menu, great bakery. Also while en-route to
Sky Valley you might take exit 17 off Rte 91 in Wells River
Vermont. Be sure to stop at
P&H Truck Stop, which is at the southbound ramp of Rte 91.
Super Food, Super Bakery, Fuel up the Car too.

OTHER PLACES WORTH
How about Lunch with mechanical entertainment?
You might try The Cafeteria at The Cog
Railway Base Station. Good cafeteria style food
and you can watch the trains get greased,loaded up with coal, water and people and watch
their progress as they chug up and down Mount
Washington. It's about
25 miles West of Sky
Valley. On the way back
you can stop for a great
hand-dipped ice cream
cone at The Willey House
which is opposite Willey Pond
where you can watch the
trout swim around from
the foot bridge, there is
a gift shop and an extensive
information center on the site and you can study-up
on the history of the place
which was named for the
family that use to operate
an Inn on the site about 150 years ago. The family
was all killed when a
summer landslide buried
If you happen to be
about an hour west of
here, at the Junction of Rte 91 and Rte 302 in
don't miss the P&H
Truck Stop.It's just down
the street from the
southbound entrance ramp.
Wait till you see all the
desserts they have...and
you won't be disappointed
with the food fare either.
You will notice I didn't
name any Chinese,
Polynesian, Italian or
nor McDonalds, Burger
King, Subway, Kentucky
Fried Chicken, or
Wendy's. I have nothing
against those places,
its just that they are all in
North Conway, along with
ten gazillion other choices.
Its fair to say that you
would have to stay here
a lot longer than a week or
a month to eat in all the
restaurants that are within
fifteen miles of Sky Valley!
After all, what do you
suppose all those people who moved here in the past fifteen years are doing to survive! Why
of course, they're running restaurants. And, it seems every time I
this page there is always someone I have forgotten, or someone who
gone...so if I didn't mention your favorite place, by all means,
a scathing e-mail !
