My husband and I came up here on a romantic weekend to celebrate our mutual birthdays. We love historic hotels so this one, being built in 1902, certainly fit the bill.
Let me start by saying the hotel is amazing. We took the hotel tour before we left and found out that there have been multiple, extensive renovations to not only winterize the hotel but to preserve its historic flavor. The brass light fixtures, for example, are all original, as are the Tiffany windows. Every column has ornate decorations, every wall has another piece of Bretton Woods and/or NH history on it. We spent a lot of time exploring the great hall, the sitting rooms, the Gold Room, etc.
The grounds are extensive. You have a full set of hiking trails, golf course, tennis courts, etc. We enjoyed, however, the expansive veranda where we grabbed a drink and simply stared at Mt. Washington (which is literally in your backyard). We did not have much time to fully experience the hotel, also we were there during the tail end of autumn so playing a round of golf and lounging by the pool weren't exactly conducive to the 50 degree weather.
Now, the staff also made our experience quite magical. Everyone we met was incredibly friendly, helpful and happy to be there. From the moment we arrived they really did treat us as incredibly special guests that they were excited to host.
I may be biased on the food since we did only one true full meal here and a light breakfast (we skipped the buffet because of our main meal). We had the "golden sash dinner" which was a five course tasting menu cooked by the chef with our input. It was so much fun for us to plan it out with Chef Kevin! Our meal was by design very autumnal, using lots of squash and local flavors. From the moment we arrived in the gorgeous octagon dining room with the fantastic views to every perfect course with the impeccable wine pairings we had a magical evening.
Overall, I would love to return here in the springtime or maybe earlier in the fall. It was a lovely place for us as a couple but I noticed that there is so much to explore here I am quite positive families could easily spend a week here and not enjoy everything it has to offer. It is well worth the trip and the expense.
