The Mount Washington Resort.

.

If you’ve ever visited Mount Washington and driven through the valley, you know there’s one structure that dominates the landscape.

.

.

The regal Mount Washington resort. Built in 1902 she’s been the hotel to the rich, the famous and everyone in between. The cheapest room is over $500 a night and if you want a king size bed with a view? Prepare to pay $1,500.

As you turn in the driveway, geese.

.

.

Geese… everywhere.

.

.

Circle past the front door to the parking lot, which is a bit of a hike if you’re too cheap to pay valet… which we were… and then stroll back.

.

.

Past some climbing vines….

.

.

And an impressive row of chrysanthemums.

.

.

Everywhere you look? It’s spectacular.

.

.

Even the portico ceiling.

.

.

And then you walk inside….

To be continued.

  1. It looks very quiet, like the scene of a potential crime by someone very wealthy and politically connected not to be discovered or a relative of someone very famous. 5 years from now, the pics will be disclosed and people will note, “But they have so much money and so many opportunities..why….” It does look like a wonderful place to start a fiction book.

  2. The first time I ever heard of this resort was when I was a kid (um, that ‘s a long time ago) and they were hosting a tennis tournament there. Saw it on tv, and the place looked majestic both inside and out. This place is definitely on the NE trip list. I am looking forward to more pics.

      1. SOMEWHERE IN TIME (1980) is one of those films which, it seems, people either like a lot (mostly women) or not at all (mostly men). It stars Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour (I happen to like it a lot).

  3. It reminds me a bit of the Stanley Hotel in Colorado, which served as the inspiration for “The Shining” (see, there’s even a Maine connection!). Tara and I talked about staying there for one of our anniversaries, but then life happened. Ahh, well. Maybe someday (though New Hampshire might be just as close now…)
