To be one of the best in the world, you have to be exceptional at what you do.

To be one of the best resorts in the world is a whole other level of service, food, surroundings, and extra activities.

This is what the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, is to so many people.  It's no wonder has named it one of the "20 Best Mountain Resorts Around the Globe".

The majestic, turn-of-the-century hotel was the most prestigious resort of its time, and still holds a magical aura with it's tall ceilings and vintage feel. Elle Décor says,

Beyond the slopes, escape back to the 1902 neo-Renaissance castle-like structure, built by 250 Italian artisans brought over to craft its beautiful plasterwork and Tiffany-style windows.

There's so much to do in the winter at the resort, including cross country skiing, alpine skiing, swimming, sleigh rides, tubing, snowshoeing and a luxurious spa at the hotel. Outside of winter, there's golf, hiking, horseback riding, disc golf, swimming, and a canopy tour, and you can plan your meetings or a wedding in this opulent setting.

The views are stunning year-round, so don't think it's just a winter resort.  Bretton Woods has so much to offer year-round.

The massive grand front porch is elegant and filled with seating and rocking chairs, and guests enter through the main entrance, through the main lobby, and into the elegant great hall with its epic white columns.

It's just a drive to one of the most beautiful mountain resorts in the world, our very own Omni Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire.
