Mountain View Grand Hotel

It all began with the view. Once upon a time, on a rainy night in 1865, two weary travelers on their way from Boston to Montreal found themselves literally stuck in the mud after the stagecoach in which they were traveling overturned. The driver directed them to a nearby farmhouse in the small township of Whitefield, New Hampshire. The original farmhouse was replaced with a 3 story structure in 1872. In 1919 the property was expanded into a world class resort and the 4th floor was added along with other amenities. The entire property was renovated for $20 million dollars in 20o1. This property is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and is a wonderful resort to stay at.  Lamy safari with Noodler’s black ink and watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.

    Whitefield!! Beautiful Wayne! Though the inside was restored with a too NEW feeling for me….not as historic as I would like….

    Very true about the restoration. It was our first time there. I know they are a hassle, but they needed to restore the wood burning fireplaces rather than the gas inserts.
