Have you been yearning to take a ski trip to Europe this holiday season? We’ve got the next best thing! It may not be Europe, but it definitely has that classic old-world feel – The Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.
This resort broke ground in 1900 and opened its doors to the world in 1902. Set between the largest ski resort in the state, Bretton Woods, and the largest Mountain on the East Coast, Mount Washington, this resort has something to offer every guest.
Don’t like to ski? Go for a sleigh ride through the snowy fields, and ice skate on a frozen pond. Better yet…jump in the car and take a 30-minute scenic drive through the Great North Woods, also known as the White Mountains, Appalachian Mountains and the Presidential Range, and head to North Conway for the day.
This picturesque little town has everything from factory outlet stores (Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, Coach, etc.), a classic train station with scenic rides to take you throughout the mountains, and a ton of local restaurants and coffee shops.
If you prefer to stay at the resort for dining, check out the AAA four-diamond restaurant, The Dining Room. Serving classic New England fare, this is one place you will not see the casual New Englander. Here you will find men dressed in suits, and women and children dressed for an elegant dining experience.
Then, retreat to your New England-style luxury suite, take a late night swim in the resort’s indoor pool, enjoy a cocktail in the resort Great Hall or…continue your festivities in The Cave, the resort’s modern and cozy bar.
This destination won’t replace your desire to head to Europe, but it will definitely satisfy your craving for a classic, quaint mountain getaway (and bonus…all within a 2-hour drive from Boston’s Logan Airport!).
