New Hampshire hotel goes green

At the base of Mt. Washington in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, The Glen House has opened as a new 68-room eco-conscious hotel. The original Glen House opened in 1852, followed by three more iterations until the present hotel opened late in 2018. BMA Architects & Planners of Amherst, N.H., used clapboards and shakes on the exterior—albeit HardiePlank Lap Siding and HardiePlank Shakes, made of fiber cement, with white trim in a style similar to its predecessors.

5 Spring Skiing Resorts that Bring the Romance

Wildcat in the White Mountains is the place for skiers who are looking to maximize their time on the slopes. The resort is known for short or barely existent lift lines even in the winter, so come the spring skiing season—which generally lasts through mid- to late April—you can be sure to get in an impressive number of runs. The mountain sits within a national forest and has narrower-than-average trails, with most of the runs friendly for skiers of all abilities. The best part if you’re a total ski bum? It’s totally no-frills.

Basch: The Glen House elevates Pinkham Notch experience

A lone cross-country skier clad in a red jacket skated swiftly and silently across the open field at the base of a shaded Mount Washington, the early morning sun casting a purple hue across the sky as it touched the frosty crowns of the peaks in New Hampshire’s Presidential Range. Just 16 or so hours before, peering out from the same third-story trail-side hotel window yielded a very different scene as a muted cloudy drape hid the classic alpine scenery.

For when you're feeling Presidential, there's the Glen House

After this experience, a warm beverage in front of a crackling fire is practically a requirement. Happily, that can be arranged at the Glen House, the new 68-room hotel that sits at the base of the mountain. Although this incarnation of the Glen House opened in September, it is actually the fifth iteration of a Glen House. The original opened in 1852. When the Mount Washington Auto Road (then a carriage road) opened in 1861, guests made the 7-mile trip in stagecoaches, drinking whiskey to dilute the effects of the toxic vapors in the clouds (according to our tour driver, Dave Roy). Fast-forward to 1967, when the fourth Glen House closed. It wouldn’t reopen for 50 years.

The Glen House

The Glen House, a newly constructed 68-room hotel at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road, may technically be one of the newer structures in the region, but its roots run deep in the White Mountains. The new hotel, built by construction management firm Martini Northern, of Portsmouth, is the fifth iteration of The Glen House to stand near the site of the original, which opened in 1852 to visitors flocking to the Northeast’s highest peak. The new, stately structure, which opened to the public on Sept. 12, pays homage to its predecessors by including aspects of its previous incarnations, offering a classic look in a bucolic setting.

10 Best Things to Do in New England in the Fall

We all know that one of New Hampshire's greatest assets is the cider doughnut: crispy on the outside, best paired with a hot apple cider or hard cider. Farms and roadside stands across the state offer samples and tastings (some, like Meadow Ledge Farm, command 45-minute waits for a doughnut). Consider a trek up to White Mountain Cider Company for dinner and dessert of warm cider doughnuts and ice cream, and overnight at the new Glen House hotel at the base of Mount Washington.

Sidebar: A history of past Glen House hotels

PINKHAM NOTCH — The soon-to-open Glen House Hotel will be the fifth by that name in the general vicinity of the Mount Washington Auto Road. All four of its predecessors burned, with the last consumed by fire in 1967. In 1851, the Grand Trunk Railway was completed from Portland, Maine, to Gorham. Tourist traffic increased dramatically. In 1851, John Bellows began to remodel a farmhouse into a hotel on the site of what would become the Glen House. Although his building was not completed, he did take in some tourists that season.
