The monstrous and formal Mt. Washington Hotel can be intimidating. It's nice to wander through its showy and historic public rooms and admire its beauty and the natural beauty that surrounds it, but nearby on the same grounds is a more intimate, less-expensive alternative. The 34-room Bretton Arms, a National Historic Landmark, was built in 1896 and first opened to guests in 1907, a few years after the 200-room Mt. Washington was constructed.
Listen closely to the mantra of Waterville Valley's staff, and you'll hear what the resort is all about: "Cool, easy and playful." Waterville may not have the urban vibe of nearby sister-resort Loon or the blood-and-guts steeps of its big-mountain neighbor Cannon, but it does have something that's hard to find in today's ski world: a multi-generational soul.
