The mountains are at the heart of so much that is memorable at the elegant Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa. Views of the magnificent White Mountain peaks are everywhere, from the comfortable rooms and suites to the top of the full-service spa, which features a “classic mountain massage.” Golfers on the resort’s historic nine-hole course and tennis players on the four clay courts marvel at the panoramic vistas, as do diners inside and on the patio at the farm-to-table Harvest Tavern. In the winter, the special location means cross-country skiing, snow tubing and snowshoeing on the property. In the summer, whitewater rafting and dogsledding are nearby. And the hiking, at the resort and off, is fantastic.
