Carpe Diem: Explore New Hampshire’s Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa
History, views, and a whole lot to do at a landmark White Mountain resort
The view is truly grand at Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in Whitefield, New Hampshire, where the panorama includes 57 mountain peaks. But there is little time to stop and stare with so much fun to be had. Beyond welcoming guests with luxe accommodations and thoughtful services, this historic resort thrills with a revved-up roster of on-site amenities and activities that entertain guests all day and ensure they are fast asleep each night within minutes of slipping between the sheets. Mountain View Grand has several distinct dining venues—such as the elegant Harvest Tavern, which serves three meals a day, and the formal 1865 Wine Cellar, which serves adults-only dinners—as well as its Tower Spa, a couple of pools, four clay tennis courts, a state-of-the-art health and wellness center, and 400 landscaped acres that include a working farm complete with orchard, greenhouse, gardens, and farm animals.
Each morning, guests can check the resort’s activities calendar for a schedule of the day’s special events, which might feature a felting workshop, water aerobics class, or wine tasting. In addition, seasonal on-site outdoor options include lawn games, golf, nature hikes, and mountain biking or sledding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and dogsledding. Any time of year, those 15 and older can channel their inner Paul Bunyans and try regulation axe-throwing. Guests who prefer a slower pace can opt to compete at board games in the parlor, play pool in the game room, watch a flick in the movie theater, or take a guided tour of the resort. And last but not least, it is an evening tradition for guests to polish off classic s’mores made around a crackling campfire before retiring to rest up for the next day’s adventures.
