GILFORD - If you're thinking about taking the family for a family ski outing next month during school vacation week you might want to consider Gunstock Mountain Resort.
While the White Mountains ski areas are an hour and a half to two hours away on heavily traveled Route 16, Gunstock Mountain Resort is just 40 minutes up the road in nearby Gilford.
And to make it extra special, we recommend a two- or three-night stay at TownePlace Suites, just 10 minutes from the slopes and near a plethora of great restaurants.

But at TownePlace Suites you can save money cooking in, too, if you'd like. All the suites, including studios, come with kitchens equipped with stove top burners, a full-size Fridge, microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker.
The suites are all open and airy with plenty of room to stow ski gear and clothing. They also have plenty of outlets for keeping phones and laptops charged.
In the morning TownePlace Suites offers

a free hot breakfast including eggs, sausage, pancakes, cereal, yogurt, bagels and fresh fruit.
They also have free 24-hour coffee in the lobby, which is good and strong, perfect for that first cup in the morning.
We worked on The Rochester Voice quite a bit while up there for a couple of nights and found the internet connection and speeds second to none.
TownePlace Suites also has a swimming pool, exercise room and a warm and inviting lobby.
They also offer family and handicap suites.
TownePlace Suites are located at 14 Sawmill Road, Gilford, N.H.
