A Lady in the Mountains!

Built in the 1920's, this Grand Lady sits nestled in the
Mount Washington Valley, New Hampshire!  In 1902 industrialist
Joseph Stickney build The Mount Washington Hotel. 
It is white with a red roof built in the Spanish Renaissance style with
a grand colonnaded veranda. 

Architecture, yes!
Class, yes!
Value for your money, yes!
Built by more than 250 master craftsmen, skilled in masonry and woodworking, were
brought from Italy during the hotel's 2-year construction.  This jewel has
recently undergone a $70 million dollar renovation.

The beautiful first floor with its wildflower carpeting!
Talk about bringing the outside in!

Tea is served daily in this lovely salon.

Golfing, tennis, horseback riding, bingo, movies
live entertainment and great food await your arrival!
The Donald Ross designed golf course shouldn't be
missed by all of you golfers!

The Lady of the hotel, Mrs. Stickney would look over the guests as they walked
to the ballroom all the while checking out their outfits.  She would
make sure she was the best dressed lady every evening!

Most of the time, Mt. Washington was shrouded in clouds. 
Here we catch a glimpse of a beautiful rainbow.
Today, this 4-diamond resort offers
opulent accommodations, award-winning dining,
countless activities including a full-service spa, a year round canopy
tour  and boasts the state's largest ski area!
 This is one lady you'll want to meet.
