The resort is located by New Hampshire’s largest ski area, Bretton Woods, which boasts 464 acres of pristine slopes for skiers and snowboarders. Comprising three terrain parks and numerous trails and glades, Bretton Woods was recently voted ‘Best Ski Resort in the East for Snow, Grooming, Service and Weather’ by Ski magazine. In the summer, the resort provides access to the White Mountain National Forest, a rugged, sprawling recreational playground of 661,000 acres that has drawn lovers of the great outdoors since the 19th century. One of the most beautiful and challenging sections of the Appalachian Trail, arguably the most famous hiking trail in the world, runs through the region. Mount Washington itself, the highest peak in the north-east of America, can be reached by car, on foot or via the 19th century Mount Washington Cog Railroad, which covers three and a half dramatic miles on its way to the mountain’s peak.
Rooms have a contemporary country flair typical of New Hampshire, with standout touches like four-poster beds, marble baths, flatscreen TVs and cosy gas fireplaces in several of the rooms. Ranging in size from 225 square feet to a whopping 1,250 square feet (for the Luxury Family Suite), there is something to suit every group’s size and budget. The views are spectacular whichever room you choose, though for maximum mountain majesty, we recommend the Corner Vista and Premier King rooms.
The Main Dining Room features stunning views of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range and serves a wide variety of locally and regionally sourced dishes in a sophisticated setting. More casual options include the all-new pub and steakhouse, Stickney’s Restaurant, and the cosy Rosebrook Bar, a great place to grab a pizza or cheeseburger while admiring the mountain views. Drinking options include the elegant Princess Room and the stone-walled Cave, a prohibition-era-style speakeasy where cocktails are served amid live entertainment.
The resort is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts whatever the time of year. In summer, tee off at the award-winning 18- or 9-hole championship golf course. Try hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing or rock climbing in the White Mountain National Forest. Soar through the treetops on the longest zip-line canopy tour in New England. Make use of the resort stables for equestrian adventures or romantic carriage rides. Or play a match or two on the outdoor clay tennis courts. When the snow arrives in winter, enjoy downhill and cross-country skiing, take a dogsled or sleigh ride, or get your skates on at the outdoor ice rink. Indoors you’ll find a climbing wall and bouldering cave, an indoor pool and hot tub, fitness centre, shopping boutiques, and a heavenly spa with magnificent mountain views.
