10 best family resorts in the Northeast

Ringed by New Hampshire’s Presidential mountains, The Glen House is one of the best resorts in the Northeast for families who crave fresh mountain air and activities. This destination for outdoor enthusiasts is located next door to Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center and steps from the Mount Washington Auto Road, a one-of-a-kind scenic road that winds through four distinct climate zones from base to summit. The resort’s lobby has floor-to-ceiling windows that stream in sunlight and a stone fireplace that adds warmth. A fitness center, bike and helmet rentals, an indoor saltwater pool and a panoramic deck with a fire pit are all popular perks. Guest rooms are spacious and reflect the modesty of Shaker design. Comfortable beds and functional desks are offset by unforgettable mountain vistas. Glen House is not an all-inclusive hotel but it is home to The Notch Grille, which serves up a comfort food menu of savory North Country fare. The courteous staff is happy to recommend nearby dining spots.

How to Save the Planet Right Here in Boston

Vacation at an Eco Hotel When you decamp to a sustainably minded hotel, you’ll leave stress, responsibilities, and wasteful living in the rearview. The charming Glen House, located in New Hampshire’s breathtaking Mt. Washington Valley, is not only perfectly situated for a sumptuous ski weekend—it was designed with a plethora of eco-friendly touches, including geothermal heating and cooling; highly efficient, regenerative elevators; and “dark sky–compliant” lighting that helps preserve nighttime darkness. Similarly, green details also make a statement at Maine’s Inn by the Sea: Enjoy a facial and massage within the recycled sheet-rock walls of the property’s spa, then head back to a private beachfront suite for a restorative nap in linens designed to protect endangered butterflies. Too tame for your taste? Book a luxury cabin at one of Vermont’s designated Green Hotels, Lake Morey Resort. Action awaits on the 18-hole golf course and 4.3-mile ice-skating trail—just make sure to leave room in your itinerary for the resort’s activities program, focused on environmental projects and local ecology.

Winter Wonderland By New Hampshire’s Glen House

It’s called “Climb to the Clouds,” one of the oldest auto races in America. Cars race toward the 6,300-foot peak of New Hampshire’s Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the Northeastern U.S. Nowadays you can also be challenged by a “Ski to the Clouds”—a combo ski/snowshoe and fat bike 10K. Or, you can use my elevation method: sit back in a SnowCoach with the heat blasting as the specially outfitted van slowly climbs through the sub-arctic world to a summit at 4,200 feet for spectacular views. On a clear day, you can see all the way north to Canada, south to New York, and east to the Atlantic Ocean. The SnowCoach is just one of many pleasant surprises that I find in the wintry world surrounding the luxury Glen House Hotel. Skiing one of the longest trails in the Northeast—2.75 miles long at nearby Wildcat Mountain—is another.

13 Best Things to Do in New England in the Fall

12. Go apple (and pumpkin) picking Nothing says fall in New England like pumpkin patches and apple orchards (and the cider doughnuts produced therein). At family-run Shelburne Orchards in northern Vermont, pick your own apples, feast on crispy cider doughnuts, sip fresh-pressed cider, and sample seven-year-old cask-aged Apple Brandy made on the premises. (Don't miss the Pommeau, a fortified cider, either.) In Loudon, New Hampshire, savor piping-hot cider doughnuts at Meadow Ledge Farm (so good they often command a 45-minute line), and in Meredith, New Hampshire, get lost in a mega-corn maze, pick your own pumpkins, and try cider doughnuts with a twist (think chocolate drizzle and sprinkles) at Moulton Farm. Near the White Mountains, meanwhile, consider a trek up to White Mountain Cider Company for dinner before overnighting at The Glen House hotel at the base of Mount Washington.

15 of the best Northeast hotels to book just in time for fall foliage

If you live in the Northeast, you know that the fall is a wonderful time to be outdoors. The summer heat is traded for sun-kissed days and crisp nights and activities abound; pick apples, visit a pumpkin patch, sip cider, or perhaps best of all, savor the incredible fall foliage. In Autumn, the changing leaves turn vibrant shades of scarlet, yellow, and orange, offering a kaleidoscope of color. It's a huge draw, attracting visitors from around the world to witness this gorgeous nature show. But the leaf-peeping season is short, and with so many travelers coming to the region, lodging can be limited and pricey. That means now is the best time to plan a fall foliage trip while inventory is still high and affordable. We curated a list of the best hotels in quaint villages, near majestic mountains, and close enough to the Atlantic Ocean to smell the salt air. Here are the best places to stay to see show-stopping foliage this fall.

Family fun on our dog-sledding adventure in the forests of New Hampshire

We’re staying at The Glen House Hotel (theglenhouse.com, 603-466-3420) in Gorham, at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road. Dating back to 1852, the hotel was completely rebuilt for the fourth time in 2018, this time with a geothermal climate control system and other sustainable features. The heart of this dog-friendly hotel is a spacious-yet-cozy lobby and lounge with soaring ceilings, an enormous stone fireplace, and a wall of windows overlooking the peaks of the Presidential Range. The space, which Architectural Digest named the most beautiful bar in the Granite State, strikes a charming note between modern and rustic: A patchwork-quilt moose head hangs above the hearth. We play board games by the roaring fire, watch the snowy summit of Mount Washington turn gold in the late afternoon sun, and order dinner and local craft beers from the bar. (This winter, food and drink will only be served to go or on the outdoor patio, weather permitting, where there is a fire pit. Out-of-state guests in the Granite State must also sign a letter stating they’ve taken quarantine-level precautions the previous 14 days.) Of course, our daughter is most impressed by the indoor saltwater pool and the vacation-only novelty of watching TV in bed — the morning of our adventure, she preps with a dog-sledding episode of Molly of Denali on PBS. For a more active morning, the adjacent Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center (greatglentrails.com, 603-466-3988) offers miles of trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and fat-tire biking, plus equipment rentals. (Outdoor activities are available as usual, with some COVID precautions in place — masks are required in the equipment rental lodge.)

And thanks to an organization called Granite Backcountry Alliance, which has been hard at work creating a network of backcountry ski zones around the state, those who prefer to get off-piste to earn their turns will find no shortage of options either.

Thoughts on the Out-of-Doors: The Glen House and Great Glen Trails are special

What a view! Looking out from our third floor room or from outside on our balcony the view is awe inspiring. The summits of Mt. Madison, Mt. Adams and to our left, Mt. Washington, glowed in the bright sun. Linda and I spent two days at the Glen House In Pinkham Notch, NH. We went so I could ski some of the Great Glen Trails and so we could ride the Snow Coach above tree line on Mt. Washington. The weather which was unusually warm and sunny made our time there even more special. It is not often that there are two days in a row the summits of the Presidentials are not shrouded in clouds. The modern, energy efficient Glen House opened in September of last year. It is the 5th Glen House, the first dating back to 1852. Each of the first four burned down as was often the case with the old grand hotels. The new Glen House is located across Route 16 from where the others were. It has 68 nicely appointed rooms, half with balconies facing the Presidential Range. It features the usual exercise equipment and a heated, indoor, saltwater pool. After a day of skiing or snowshoeing, the pool is a great place to let your tired body relax as you look out at the mountains. The Notch Grille and adjoining lounge face the mountains and there are no bad seats. You may find it hard to concentrate on your food while enjoying the view. The lounge has couches and comfortable chairs, most facing the floor to ceiling windows, so sipping an adult beverage while watching the mountains is a favorite activity.

Location is Everything at The Glen House

The one thing I’ve always felt the eastern flank of Mount Washington needed was a place to stay that didn’t include winter camping. Something a bit more contemporary. The Glen House is the missing piece. This sprawling 68-room hotel, situated at the base of the historic Mount Washington Auto Road, might not have a timeline going back quite that far, but it has roots that date back more than a century and a half, to the mid-1800s. Shortly after the Grand Trunk Railroad was established between Portland, Maine, and Gorham in 1851, an enterprising entrepreneur, John Bellows, converted an old farmhouse at the eastern base of Mount Washington into a hotel. The next year, in 1852, Bellows sold the structure to Col. Joseph M. Thompson, who promptly renamed it The Glen House, and set to work on finishing the hotel’s rooms.

IT’S EASY TO GET gun-shy these days about booking a New England ski vacation.

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.

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.

Hotel Opening: The Glen House at Mt. Washington, New Hampshire

The Glen House, a new 68-room hotel at the base of Mt. Washington, opened today in New Hampshire. Owned by the Mt. Washington Summit Road Company (MWSRC) and managed by Olympia Hotel Management, The Glen House is just 30 minutes from North Conway and situated near the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road, which the family-owned MWSRC has operated since 1906. The Glen House has deep, historic roots in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The new hotel is the fifth iteration of The Glen House to be built near the site of the original hotel, a landmark that opened in 1852 as tourists began to flock to the summit of 6,288 foot Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast. The new hotel carries on the tradition of its predecessors and is the first property to stand on this site in more than half a century.

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.
