I would want someplace that's easy to fly into...and easy to get to from the airport (preferably a direct hotel shuttle for someone who doesn't know the area and might be flying in at night).
NH sounds beautiful, but, for example, how do you get from the nearest airport (and where is the nearest airport?) to North Conway? It would be an added expense to have to take a commercial bus, and possible inconvenience in terms of ensuring connection times and places.
As long as I can fly into a place and not have to worry about too many difficult connections to get to the final destination, I'll be happy going just about anywhere...especially knowing that there are friendly faces waiting at the end of the line!
When you don't like a thing, change it.
If you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
