About Grand North

Northern New Hampshire is an area of rugged mountains and untamed wilderness. Visitors revel in the fact that here, like nowhere else in the Northeast, they can explore and enjoy a large concentration of adventurous activities in a setting of unparalleled beauty.

The historic Grand Hotels, now only three left from the hundreds built, stand tall and majestic against their pristine backdrops. The Balsams Grand Resort Hotel (currently closed for renovations), nestled beneath the cliffs of Dixville Notch, is  reflected in beautiful Lake Gloriette. The Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa, perched on a hill overlooking the sleepy town of Whitefield, is a destination for some of the best sunsets in the northeast. Beneath the staggering grandness of Mount Washington rests the Omni Mount Washington Resort & Hotel, the largest of the three, with its red roof offering a sharp contrast to the blue mountainous landscape.

To complement the Grand Resorts are the equally grand Grand Adventures. Carefully chosen for superior customer service and experience, each one is certain to provide vacation memories on a first, second, or even third trip. Extreme adventurers can zip through the tree line on the Bretton Woods Canopy Tour. Children can whisper their wishes to Santa at Santa's Village. Enjoy the experience of an Grand Adventure, regardless of age.

Quaint locally owned shops and restaurants are peppered throughout the area, with their owners ready to welcome visitor seeking a unique adventure. Dining options vary from the pristine dining rooms of each Grand Hotel to the cozy pancake parlor down the street. Lodging in New Hampshire's Grand North can accommodate families looking for a campsite to cook s'mores, or a couple searching for a perfect suite for their get-a-way weekend.

Your adventure is waiting here in the Grand North.
