Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa
Whitefield, NH 03598
The candlelit tables surrounded by bins holding 6,500 bottles are undeniably romantic. Food such as lobster–scallop stew and roasted locally farmed venison fit the elegant setting. Gentlemen will want a jacket and ladies will like a wrap, as the wine cellar stays cool all year round. Voted Best Wine Cellar Dining.

The Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa, which dates to 1865 and reached its present considerable size in 1911, combines the traditions of an old-time resort with the luxuries modern travelers expect. Set on 1,800 acres, the recently renovated property includes a nine-hole golf course (plans are in the works to expand it to 18 holes), an outdoor pool, a children’s play area, and tennis courts. Among the indoor amenities are a pool, spa, and billiard room. The most spacious guest rooms are the front corner suites and the balcony rooms overlooking Franconia Notch and Mount Lafayette. At The Maples restaurant, you can reserve a table near the fireplace and enjoy dishes such as rack of lamb with horseradish spaetzle, seared nori-wrapped tuna, and aged tenderloin. The Stagecoach Tavern serves lighter fare.
