Mount Washington Resort Review
The two most memorable sights in the White Mountains would have to be Mount Washington and the Mount Washington Hotel. Its grand scale and remarkable setting graced by the view of the Presidentials is astonishing. This 1902 resort has a 900-foot veranda and stately public rooms and glimmers with an early-20th-century ambience. It would take a full week to exhaust the recreational activities here: in winter try out the tubing, ice-skating, a great cross-country facility, a terrific downhill skiing complex, and dogsled and sleigh rides; in summer, you can enjoy horseback riding, carriage rides, fly-fishing, golf, mountain biking, and more. The Cave provides gin in a coffee cup and nightly entertainment in a former 1930s speakeasy. Kids will love the arcade, sweet shop, and playground, as well as a club with themed day and evening programs. The hotel also has a 25,000-square-foot spa and a renovated 18-hole Donald Ross golf course designed in 1915. Rooms have high ceilings and are furnished in a manner befitting the history and grandeur of this luxurious resort. The bathrooms are glorious, with white porcelain sinks and tubs and white tile.
Families love this hotel in the heart of New England for its beauty, amenities, and endless number of activities. In winter, guests take their pick of outdoor fun, from skiing and dog sledding to snow shoeing and ice skating. In summer, guests mountain bike, play tennis, hike, and fly fish. For indoor entertainment, there's a pool, hot tub, spa, and arcade.
