Fodor's Expert Review Omni Mount Washington Hotel

310 Mt. Washington Hotel Rd., off U.S. 302, Bretton Woods, 03575, USA Fodor's Choice

The two most memorable sights in the White Mountains would have to be Mt. Washington and the Omni Mount Washington Hotel. Its grand scale and remarkable setting graced by the view of the Presidential Range are astonishing. This 1902 resort with a 900-foot veranda and stately public rooms glimmers with an early-20th-century ambience. It would take a full week to exhaust the recreational activities here: in winter, go tubing or ice-skating, check out the great cross-country facility or the terrific downhill skiing complex, and sign up for dogsled or sleigh rides; in summer, you can enjoy horseback riding, carriage rides, fly-fishing, golf, and mountain biking. The Cave serves gin in coffee cups and nightly entertainment in a former 1930s speakeasy. Kids will love the arcade, sweets 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 that opened 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.
