The RiverWalk Resort at Loon, one of New Hampshire’s most prestigious properties, earned an award for excellence at the annual ARDA awards last March. The ACE Domestic Project of Excellence Award is given to exceptional timeshare properties that focus on efficient design, sustainability, impact on local communities, and day-to-day operations.

Nominated for the award by their affiliated exchange partner, RCI, the RiverWalk Resort at Loon and its developer, Dennis Ducharme, accepted the award at the event’s final banquet on March 29th. According to Todd Menendez, the vice president of business development for RCI, the award reflects the exceptional quality of the property.

“RiverWalk at Loon Mountain is a gem in the RCI portfolio, and so deserving of the ACE Domestic Project of Excellence Award. Every detail of the hospitality experience has been carefully thought-out, from the well-preserved history of the property to the exquisite on-site winery. The resort design has been developed with precision and expertise and it is reflected in an exceptional experience for guests.”

The six-story Riverwalk Resort at Loon is perched above the banks of the Pemigewasset River in New Hampshire’s popular mountain destination of Lincoln. The resort is just minutes from some of the best skiing on the East Coast, and features highly-favorable amenities like a year-round outdoor swimming pool, exquisite Italian dining at La Vista Restaurant, the Solstice North Day Spa, and even a winery. The resort also facilitates unique adventures and tours throughout New Hampshire’s White Mountains region, allowing guests to discover local attractions and shop at local businesses.

Ducharme, who is also the president of InnSeason Resorts, spoke to the significance of the distinction bestowed upon the resort during the ARDA awards:

“Receiving this award is a great compliment. I was honored to accept this award on behalf of the team that has worked so hard to bring this vision to reality. ARDA has essentially recognized 10 years of work, from demolishing and remediating the Franconia Mill property, to the design and engineering and the actual construction of RiverWalk. I can’t tell you how many people were involved, but each one shared the extraordinary vision, so I share this with every one of them.”
