As we were making our way to New Hampshire from Vermont, we passed by the famous Omni Mount Washington Resort, located at the foot of the Presidential Range in Bretton Woods area. The sheer grandness of the golf courses, beautiful landscapes, snow-covered mountains, and an imposing structure made me stop without thinking twice!I had never seen as pretty a sight as this one! There were only a few people around, as I parked my car just alongside the road to the resort. One of the lady photographers present mentioned it is her favorite site and that she had been there for hours.
The tallest peak in the view is Mount Washington, the one we drove on the next day. It is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288ft, and I even drove up to its Summit a couple of years back.
Within an hour or so the sun went down, providing for a dramatic change in the scenery. I was holding my breath for the last beam of rays as the colors changed from yellow, to orange, to pink, and everything in between!I couldn’t help admire the reflections in a small pond there. Even the fall colors on the other side of the highway added to the mesmerizing views.And then the time of the hour which I had been waiting for…with a perfect postcard-type setting!I had never heard of the resort earlier but it’s a highly rated 4-star hotel. The Ski area close by was ranked #1 in the East for snow, grooming, service, and weather in 2013/14 by SKI Magazine Reader’s Poll.
If you just want to admire the beauty, my recommendation would be going there early-mid October just when the fall colors are at their peak, but after the snow has fallen.
