Omni Mt. Washington Hotel

Stickney imported more than 200 Italian artisans for the project, which only took two years to complete. Today, Mount Washington Hotel is one of the few surviving grand hotels in the White Mountains region of New Hampshire, and the greater New England area at large, and was designated a historic landmark in 1986. Throughout it’s history, Mount Washington Hotel has only ever been a seasonal summer destination. In the winter of 1999, it became a year-round resort for the first time, and has continued to be so to this day.

As I look out the window I see the tallest mountain peak in New England. A summit that has reported the worst weather in the United States, but I am tucked inside in a “room with a view”. This magnificent view is just a very few short miles as a bird flies from the large wraparound veranda and elegant accommodations of the Omni Mount Washington Resort.

The Omni Mount Washington has always been a place of fascination to me. The hotel was opened in 1902 by John Stickney, a native of New Hampshire who make his fortune in the coal and railroad industries. He died within the year. His Wife Carolyn remarried and became a real live Princess. She spent summers in the White Mountains for many years thereafter. So, as you are checking in, look to your right and see the Princess from her balcony watching you. When you are entering into the formal dining room, her table is set still waiting for her to come to dinner, and her bed is still set up in Room 314.

omni mt wash resort lobbyThe Omni Mount Washington is at the base of the Presidential Mountain Range which includes Mount Washington with a very up-close look at Tuckerman’s Ravine. On a clear day, you can see the weather station at the top of the mountain. It is one of the Grande Dames of the Northeast with a real prohibition “cave” bar in the basement, and it is rumored to be visited by a ghost or two. Let me point out that they are friendly. And in its day, it was the destination of royalty and presidents, as well as the host of the 1944 International Monetary Conference which established the World Bank.

The Omni Mount Washington is still that family fun resort with so many things to do year round, that, even in November, the place was busy. In the winter, choose downhill skiing at Bretton Woods, located almost across the road, cross-country skiing, kid snowmobile rides, sleigh riding, dog sledding, guided winter snowshoes tour, snowtubing or skating. The resort also offers an indoor pool, outdoor heated pool and exercise facility. A world class spa remodeled lodging at mt washington resort provides many services to guests and locals alike. (Link to another story) Best of all, you can shop the outlets of North Conway just a short 25 minutes’ drive away.

Summers allow you to hike, bike, zip line, golf, and tennis, visit the equestrian center and take a horseback ride through the woods. Lounge at the outdoor heated pool with Mount Washington as your backdrop. You can rock climb indoors at the Bretton Woods Adventure Center. Explore the wonders of Crawford Notch and once again the outlets of North Conway.

Although New Hampshire has wonderful activities in all four seasons, there is one attraction that remains the same at the Omni Mount Washington Resort, the food. With nine restaurants and two dedicated bars located within the main resort, the Bretton Arms and the Bretton Woods Ski Area, this is a food mecca. Fine dining in the main resort, which required proper dress attire or the Bretton Arms Inn which is resort-casual offers some of the finest palate experiences in the area. Stickney’s the cave speakeasy bar at mt washington(see dining review) and Fabyan Station (located across from the ski area), are a bit more relaxed but offer a full fare.The Grille, Latitude 440 Restaurant, Slopeside Restaurant & Pub and The Rosebrook Bar are perfect for soups, salads, burgers, gourmet pizzas and small bits. In a hurry Lucy Crawford’s Food Court at the ski resorts is perfect with hot and cold items for the outdoors enthusiasts.

Looking for a bit of nightlife? The Cave, a prohibition-era speakeasy at the main resort orThe Parlor at the Bretton Arms will welcome you. Over 40 wines by the glass are served at The Parlor…you are welcome to stop in.
