Adventure Suites Celebrates 45th Anniversary with Live Music and More on Sept. 21

Motor Booty Affair to Headline Free Concert at the North Conway Theme Hotel
45 years ago, a concept new to North Conway took shape, and nothing has been the same again on the hospitality landscape in this popular White Mountains resort town. Adventure Suites, The Theme Hotel, is marking a special anniversary of exceeding guests’ expectations and imaginations on Sept. 21, from 6-9pm when owner Kathy Brassill-Doucet opens the doors to the public with a free party featuring Motor Booty Affair, and other fun activities and appearances marking the day.

While today Adventure Suites features 16 themed suites, including the over-the-top 3,500 square foot Haunted Castle Suite which sleeps 15 and cost over $800,000 to design and construct, it had more humble beginnings 45 years ago when Kathy’s parents first purchased it.  Known as the Presidential Water Bed Hotel, the “Poconos of the White Mountains,” the hotel offered guests rooms with a waterbed and hot tub in every room. It’s a far cry from the aesthetics and amenities of today’s suites, which were constructed with fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs, themed decorations, sound systems, lighting and programmable elements that were unfathomable back then.

Kathy and husband Alan Doucet have consistently invested themselves in the property since they took over in 1998, both in terms of their vision and their capital dollars. Glancing at a photo of the photo back in the 1970s, it’s hard to see its original structure. But suite by suite, year by year, they have created what can only be described as a “Disney-esque” sense of imagination, whimsy and attention to detail that inspires awe in its visitors every day.

So it’s only fitting that they are pulling out the stops to offer THE party of the season on Sept. 21 from 6-9pm, as they bring in Motor Booty Affair, the ultimate 70s disco funk band. The party will take place outdoors in the “back yard” of the property, with rolling greens and mountain views, as well as an outdoor fire pit, chairs and a stage for the band. The event is free and open to the public.

There will be a cash bar available. Guests are asked to bring ID to receive a wristband to purchase alcohol. All ages are welcome.
