    Anybody from here? Or been here? Heading up this way in a month or so with some buddies, and I'm looking for lodging. Is there a big difference between Greenville, and Greenville Junction?

    Something cheaper and walking distance to a couple bars would be best. I know it's remote, but there should be at least one bar around, right?

    Any info not readily found on the interwebs would be great!

    Greenville is a fun lil town, the Juction is on the West side of town with a gas station/store, boat launch and the west cove pub/ bar. In town you have Black frog, Flatlanders (broasted chicken dinner:deal)Rod n reel, Stress free moose (Bloody Mary:1drink) Indian hill store has about anything you would need in case you forget something.

    when ya hdn up :ear

    ^ good post. now I'm hungry for chicken.

    Walking to bar from hotel might be a little tough distance wise. Indian Hill Motel above town on the way in is basic but expensive. Not much else that isn't a lodge style place nearer to town.

    I think the Chalet Moosehead is down in Gville Jct which should get you close enough to walk to west cove pub.

    Thanks for all the info ya'll, google earth couldn't answer all my questions
    We'll be heading up late July. Leaving vermont, stopping in North Conway, then to Greenville, Portland, Laconia, and back to vermont. We've got the Kanc, bear notch road, and groton state forest on the itinerary. Two Harley's, a VFR, my strom, and an old Moto Guzzi buzzing through a couple states. Should be fun!

    We just got back from that area , been going for 13 years, stay at a friends camp so I don't have 1st hand exp with the lodging , but we eat at Kelly's landing every time we go up there, the food is good and is right on the lake , though when they get busy the service can be a bit slow , though we have found that to be the case just about everywhere we go up that way .

    Go to kellys landing if it is still their.
    Best food in the area. (best prime rib i have ever had, at $16 it makes it that much better)

    lots of trails in the area also

    I have a vacation home in St Albans ME and i can drive to Greenville with less than 3 miles of street riding

    Route 16 (13 Mile Woods Road) above Berlin would be a nice road for that collection of bikes.:deal Watch yer speed around Gorham/Berlin.

    You could also round out your northern NH route with a selection from this menu:

    The few dirt roads tucked in there have been done by street bikes but Sandwich Notch Road is not for the faint of heart.:deal

    Have a great ride!:webers

    accross from kelly's landing is a place that has broasted chicken. it's to die for. i can't remember the name. it's a small place. the service has always been very good. don't for get to stop at the indian trader post. they have gas, groceries, guns, liquor, etc. take a look at lilly bay cabins, and or beaver cove camping.

    Flatlanders is where the chicken is but it's in town, more across from the Black Frog. You are right about it being good.

    ah yes thank you. i need to make a trip there on the bike soon. there's another nice bar/rest as you head west out of town around the lake that's good also. just as you leave the center and go under the train trestle look right. it's near where they have water plane rides over the lake.

    Great trip, thanks for the tips y'all!

    Kelly's landing is where we had dinner, good food, killer salad bar, all you can eat Friday fish fry

    Woodys up the hill was a fun rowdy place for drinks, and everything was easy walking distance from the hotel
