Mount Washington resort.. the finale.

.

As we were winding up our tour of the resort we wandered into the conference center….

.

.

Which was just as attractive as the rest of the resort though in a newer building addition. There were multiple meeting rooms of which I’ll spare you the details…

.

.

But we did find a plethora of fascinating old maps.

.

.

And since I included the word old in that description, you know who enjoyed them the most.

.

Random grand piano…. because you never know when the Brotherhood of Orthopedic Shoe Manufacturers will feel the need to break into song.

.

.

The indoor pool required a paying guests only entry card so here’s a shot of it through a window. I thought it was very nice they had a handicap lift machine.

If I haven’t mentioned it before, this hotel was built in 1902. And though they do an amazing job of upkeep, the old broad is beginning to show her age and needs some serious restoration in spots.

Underneath decades of crisp clean white paint? Rotted wood.

.

.

And a side porch rotunda that’s undergoing some major repairs.

They try to keep as much of the original structure as possible which I’m sure is an engineering nightmare.

.

.

So there you have it, The Mount Washington resort. An area landmark that shouldn’t be missed.

  1. I will give it this: They thought big, and it was an amazing feat of architecture that I doubt anyone could accomplish today. But I cannot imagine how crowded it would be if all the rooms/suites were rented at the same time, no matter how much space there appears to be.

  2. Thank you for the tour of this grand old place. I love going to historic ritzy hotels, if only to walk through the place and soak up the ambience. When I worked, I was sometimes lucky enough to be booked into some of them for meetings and conferences.
