The Bretton Arms Country Inn Bretton Woods, N.H. (Near Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Attitash)
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.
Bretton Woods has awakened from its long nap. It enters the new millennium with a majorexpansion underway that is taking it from a sleepy, small resort to one that will be among the biggest in New England.
