The beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire welcomes families every season of the year for incredible adventures. Here, you can leave behind the hustle-bustle of the cities and discover a place that lets you truly reconnect with your loved ones at your leisure. The breathtaking views and exciting outdoor activities come together to create an unforgettable natural playground that everyone in the family is sure to love.
In the heart of this beautiful destination awaits the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa. Surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest, this elegant resort is a more than just a place to rest your head. Their onsite activities ensure there's never a dull moment on your family vacation. Indoor and outdoor pools are always a popular pastime; splash around together and enjoy the beautiful mountain views as you soak. An onsite movie theater lets you catch one of your favorite flicks in a comfortable space. With over 500 movies to choose from, you're bound to find something that the whole family can enjoy together. For something more active, you can challenge each other to a round of tennis at their state-of-the-art clay courts, or join in on games such as Silly Soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, and Capture-the-Flag.
The kids are sure to love a stop at the resort's own working farm. The Meet the Farmer tour takes you on a 30-minute tour of the barnyard, where the kids can visit the hens and goats, and say "good morning" to the alpacas and llamas! Help the farm collect eggs, press apples into cider during the fall, or assist with the spring shearing. And as if that's not enough, the Mountaineering Club is a great option for the kids to make friends and participate in other fun activities such as arts and crafts and exploring the surrounding nature.
"In a camp like atmosphere, children spend the day learning about and getting out in the backcountry to find tracks, learn about trees, and the animals that live there," said the resort's Activities Director, Piper Strong. Your kids will be guided by trained counselors so you can enjoy the chance to indulge in a soothing treatment at the spa or take in a round of golf at the 18-hole onsite course.
The resort's surrounding 1,700 acres of forest within the White Mountains makes it an ideal place for hiking and mountain biking. A wide assortment of trails wind around through the area and let you take in the magnificent views together as a family; keep your eyes open for wildlife such as whitetail deer, moose and plenty of birds! The resort offers mountain bike rentals and private tours along their own ten miles of biking terrain for the ultimate New Hampshire mountain biking experience.
With all this waiting for you, it's not wonder Mountain View is a popular family destination. After a long day, you can easily settle down for a delicious meal at the Harvest Tavern, which serves up classic New England cuisine that the whole family will love. Their spacious guest rooms and suites are well-equipped with modern touches that will make you feel at home everyday of your stay.
