Two-Night Stay at Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in Whitefield, NH

Four-Star Resort Overlooking White Mountain Range

Though it’s tucked into 1,700 forested acres amid New Hampshire’s gorgeous White Mountains, Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa still found a way to stand out: it has a blazing light display powered entirely by green energy, much of which comes from a 121-foot wind turbine that rotates out back. The resort wasn’t always this conspicuous, though. It was originally a simple country inn, Mountain View House, which was first built on these slopes in 1866. After many additions and a complete 21st-century renovation, the colonial-revival building is what you see today: a massive resort sprawled out like the magnificent peaks that surround it.

After a full day out in the mountains, pay a visit to the award-winning spa to use your $100 resort credit and decompress with a massage or immerse yourself in the 252-jet, mountain-water-filled soaking tub. There’s an eclectic selection of dining options on the property where you can use your credit, too. The main dining room is an elegant venue with views of the Presidential Range; chefs whip up French specialties such as duck à l’orange. Alternatively, the Tavern serves up pub fare and local draft beers.

White Mountains: Hiking and Fishing in Protected Natural Wilderness

You can get a nice snapshot of precolonial New England when you visit the nearly 800,000-acre White Mountain National Forest, located less than 10 miles south of the resort. Dozens of 4,000-foot crests hang above six designated federal wilderness areas; 100 miles of the famed Appalachian Trail meander through here as well. The forest shelters several endangered species, such as the white mountain butterfly, the canada lynx, and the isolationist poet.

In the winter, the focus for outdoorsy activity shifts from hiking to skiing. The area’s well-kept trails include those at Loon Mountain, Waterville Valley, and Black Mountain. They’re all in close proximity, making it easy to ski several of them in a day. At Cannon Mountain, you’ll find 72 trails, as well as the highest ski summit and longest vertical drop in the entire state.

North Star Lodge

North Star Lodge encourages exploration in any season by helping wanderers set up base camp in its resort and using its outdoor pool—heated to a steamy 102 degrees year-round—to soothe snow-swept muscles and ward off abominable snowmen trying to show off their water wings. Accommodations range from traditional hotel rooms to jacuzzi suites, but all include complimentary HBO and WiFi. Before heading outside to the picnic area or free shuttle to Killington’s base, where barbecue grills nestle amid pine groves, guests can head to the lobby for free coffee and tea, served fresh 24 hours a day.

Two-Night Stay with Spa Services, Welcome Basket, and Late Check-Out at Mountain Edge Resort in Newbury, NH

New Hampshire Resort Spa at Lake Sunapee

Granite, fir, and fieldstone furnishings crafted by local artisans accent the Mountain Edge Resort, a timber-topped lodge with decorative details that echo its New Hampshire setting. Located fewer than two hours from Boston and steps from Lake Sunapee, the retreat offers a rustic yet comfortable respite from urban bustle. To that end, there are a slew of soothing amenities, including an onsite spa, bubbling hot tubs, and comfort food served in the attached tavern.

The resort’s pools stay open year-round and feature saltwater technology designed to go easy on hair, skin, eyes, and fins. Head to the The Spa at Mountain Edge Resort for the included couples massage, or use your spa credit toward a Marvelous Maple facial, deep-sea mud wrap, or any other spa treatment.

Rosewood trimmings and fireplaces grace the 800-square-foot one-bedroom den suites, and in The Mountain Spirits Tavern, you’ll find leather sofas and a menu of casual American fare. Dishes such as roasted chicken breast and four-cheese ravioli are served both in the rustic confines of the dining room and outside on the deck.

Newbury, New Hampshire: Quiet Hamlet in Scenic New England Landscape

About an hour’s drive north of Manchester, the small town of Newbury lies amid rolling hills and untouched forests. At neighboring Mount Sunapee State Park, hiking trails crisscross the terrain, ultimately bringing you to a picturesque lakeside beach.

Come winter, the Mount Sunapee ski area is crisscrossed with 11 chairlifts and dozens of trails for skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels.

Nearby New London has quaint New England charm—Main Street is lined with shops, a farm stand, historical buildings, and cafés. Across from Lake Sunapee stretches The Fells Historic Estate & Gardens, a preserved early-20th-century mansion set on 84 sprawling acres of manicured grounds and woodland trails. Guided walking tours pass through the 22-room Colonial Revival home, which served as a summer retreat for John Milton Hay—the secretary of state and chief party planner under Presidents McKinley and Roosevelt.

One- or Two-Night Stay at The Pointe Hotel at Castle Hill Resort & Spa in Proctorsville, VT

Spacious Suites on Fairy-Tale Grounds

In the early 1900s, Vermont governor Allen Miller Fletcher staked out a hill in the Green Mountains to build a castle-like resort. The area he picked is almost like something out of a fairy tale, tucked into the woods near Okemo Mountain. The area is called Castle Hill, and it’s where you’ll find The Pointe Hotel at Castle Hill Resort & Spa, a modern hotel that shares its property with some of Fletcher’s original Cotswolds-style buildings and gorgeous gardens, which earned the resort a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Here, guests relax in suites featuring fully equipped kitchens, fireplaces, and flat-screen TVs.

The brick-accented Pointe Hotel is spacious and comfortable, with facilities that put the focus on fitness and wellness. At the Aveda Concept spa, relax with massages, facials, and body wraps. The resort’s sunlit pavilion, lined with windows on both the walls and ceiling, makes for a soothing setting to take a yoga or Pilates class.

Breakfast and dinner are served onsite in the opulent wood-paneled dining room, where executive chef Alphonsus Harris uses fresh local produce to craft French-influenced dishes. While here, be sure to explore the region’s Okemo Valley, home to President Calvin Coolidge’s Homestead, more than a dozen covered bridges, and Okemo State Forest.

Proctorsville, Vermont: Quaint New England Town Close to Lakes and Trails

Proctorsville lies in the shadows of Vermont’s Okemo Mountain. The family-owned mountain, which has more than 600 acres of generally uncrowded slopes and beginner-friendly trails available in colder months, has maintained its natural beauty by resisting overdevelopment. When the weather is warm, visitors can swim and fish in the area’s lakes, and bicycle or hike across its network of trails, such as the Healdville Trail, which climbs to the mountain’s 3,340-foot summit.

Nearby, Ludlow’s diverse culinary landscape includes classic Italian restaurants, Irish pubs, and steak houses. Boutiques and antique shops welcome window-shoppers to feast eyes on elegant gifts, collectors’ items, and local art.

Two-Night Stay at Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in New Hampshire’s White Mountains

Historical Resort Overlooking White Mountain Range

Eons of erosion helped to create the distinct rock formations that make up the White Mountains, a towering Appalachian range stretching across northern New Hampshire. Though it isn’t prehistoric, Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa has been carefully sculpted over a long period, too. The first iteration of the resort was as a country inn, Mountain View House, which was first built on these slopes in 1866. After many additions and a complete 21st-century renovation, the Colonial Revivalist building is what you see today: a massive resort sprawled out like the magnificent peaks that surround it.

Situated on 1,700 forested acres, the resort stands out at night as a vast blaze of light against the dusky woods. It has a light display powered entirely by green energy, much of which comes from a 121-foot wind turbine that rotates out back.

In springtime, you can play a round at the resort’s nine-hole golf course, which has 360-degree views of three mountain ranges. Links magazine named it one of New England’s Top 25 Courses. After a full day out on the course or in the mountains, pay a visit to the award-winning spa to decompress with a massage or immersion in the 252-jet, mountain-water-filled soaking tub.

There’s an eclectic selection of dining options on the property, too. The main dining room is an elegant venue with views of the Presidential Range; its chefs whip up French specialties such as duck à l’orange. Alternatively, the Tavern serves up pub fare and local draft beers.

Like many places in the resort, the Grand View guest rooms have a nice view of the peaks; many come with private balconies.

The White Mountains: Hiking and Fishing in Protected Natural Wilderness

You can get a nice snapshot of pre-colonial New England when you visit the nearly 800,000-acre White Mountain National Forest, located fewer than 10 miles south of the resort. Dozens of 4,000-foot crests hang above six designated Federal Wilderness Areas; 100 miles of the famed Appalachian Trail meander through here too. The forest shelters several endangered species, such as the White Mountain butterfly, Canada lynx, and the isolationist poet.

In the spring, the focus for outdoorsy activity shifts from skiing to hiking. On the area’s well-kept trails, you can often see moose, foxes, and other native wildlife. The forest is also home to a number of fishing ponds and scenic and wild rivers that are good for paddling.

One-Night Stay at Ashworth by the Sea Hotel in Hampton, NH

Boutique Hotel Overlooking Atlantic Ocean

Ashworth by the Sea Hotel has stood along Hampton’s Ocean Boulevard for more than 100 years. Its retro sign—made up of slanting white letters spelling out the name of the place across a brick wall—is a distinctive feature along an oceanfront regarded as one of New England’s best. Hotel guests are treated to wide-open views of Hampton Beach and the Atlantic Ocean from their guest rooms as well as from a rooftop deck located directly underneath the sign.

Most of the boutique hotel’s105 guest rooms look out on the water and are outfitted with private balconies. Elsewhere, a heated indoor pool sparkles under a roof made from hundreds of translucent yellow glass panes. Come evening, you can head up to the seasonal rooftop deck, Sandbar, to watch a summertime fireworks display reenact the Big Bang nightly.

Executive chef Stephen Harding presides over Breakers Restaurant and Bar, where he crafts signature dishes such as New England clam chowder and savory Maine-lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. Recent renovations have outfitted the restaurant with a stone fireplace, granite-topped bar, and wood flooring. On Friday and Saturday nights, Breakers transforms into a dance club with a DJ or live bands from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Hampton, New Hampshire: New England Resort Town with Award-Winning Beaches

Ashworth by the Sea overlooks Hampton Beach, one of only four shorelines in the country named a “superstar beach” by the Natural Resources Defense Council. The award goes to those beaches deemed the safest in the U.S. thanks to a record of clean swimming water. Beginning on Memorial Day, fireworks and 80 days of consecutive concerts enliven the summer nights. Between catching and releasing sunrays, visitors can grab a bite or a beer at one of the many bars and cafés lining Ocean Boulevard.

Two-Night Stay with Spa Option Available in a King Room at Snapdragon Inn in Windsor, VT. Two Options Available.

Storied Inn and Spa in the Heart of New England

If walls could talk, these would recite passages from the classics of American literature. Maxwell Perkins, the celebrated editor who elevated Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald to fame, once lived in what is now Snapdragon Inn, a brick home originally built in 1815, now renovated as an elegant small luxury inn and spa. The hotel preserves its literary roots with a wood-paneled library and en suite book collections, and chic décor throughout the property recalls the glamour of the Great Gatsby era.

Each of the nine available bedrooms espouses the updated décor lauded by Food & Wine magazine, which named Snapdragon Inn as one of America’s best bed and breakfasts in 2011. Soft pastel walls are broken up by large colonial windows, allowing the sun to pour onto custom-upholstered armchairs and Victorian-style bed benches. Set against otherwise muted décor, vibrant throw pillows and contemporary rugs add bursts of color. The cozy vibe continues in adjoining bathrooms, where radiant floor heating eliminates the need for hot-cocoa footbaths, and, in some rooms, a red brick fireplace tempers the chill of blustery nights.

Steps away from the guest rooms, the Snapdragon Spa augments a soothing ambiance with organic products and lush spa robes. With the second spa option, guests can choose between two spa treatments, either an Herbal Aromatherapy and Relaxation Massage or a Farmaesthetics Sweet Milk and Lavender Buds Anti-Wrinkle Facial. The spa package also includes a Farmaesthetics Facial To-Go kit to maintain skincare regimens. An amble through Paradise Park, an adjacent lakefront nature preserve, completes a relaxing afternoon.

Windsor, Vermont: Charming Town Steeped in History

Located on central Vermont’s New Hampshire border, Snapdragon Inn nestles comfortably on Windsor’s Main Street among quaint antique stores and notable historical buildings. The Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge stretches nearly 450 feet across the Connecticut River—making it one of the longest covered bridges in America—and provides a picturesque place for jogging or biking. A restored 18th-century tavern called the Old Constitution House now showcases a museum and looks nearly just as it did some 200 years ago, when the first state constitution prohibiting slavery was signed. Nearby, a popular brewery offers tours and tastings every day of the week, and an upscale glass-blowing factory showcases its labor-intensive craftsmanship to studio visitors.

What You Get

Two-night stay for two adults in a king room; up to one kid 11 or younger stays free

$87 for a One-Night Stay with Dining Credit, Gas Card, and Wine at Radisson Hotel Nashua in Nashua, NH ($204 Value)

Castle-Like Hotel with Modern Conveniences

Imposing, fortress-like towers and a façade crisscrossed by wooden beams lend the Radisson Hotel Nashua the look of a Tudor castle. Inside, though, the lobby is surprisingly airy, with elegant wood paneling and modern artwork adorning the walls. The hotel manages to balance a medieval demeanor with contemporary décor and 21st-century amenities such as WiFi and Sleep Number beds. Outside, 17 acres of pastoral, tree-dotted grounds comprise a serene backdrop for any era at a spot located less than 50 miles from Boston and a few minutes’ drive from Nashua’s historical downtown.

Sunlight filters through leaded windows in many of the spacious guest rooms. An in-room movie can be called up at any time from the TV menu, and pairs well with the complimentary bottle of wine included with this Getaway. Downstairs, the Granite Lounge serves up a daily breakfast buffet as well as dinner fare ranging from brick-oven pizzas to prosciutto-wrapped cod. To counteract calories, the onsite Atlantis Sports Club offers exercise equipment, a sauna, and a pool in addition to a daily schedule of classes such as yoga and underwater jousting.

Nashua, New Hampshire: History-Rich New England Town with Vibrant Arts Scene

About a 10-minute drive from the hotel, the city of Nashua bustles at the confluence of the Merrimack and Nashua Rivers. One of America’s oldest towns, it underwent a textile boom in the 19th and early 20th centuries, remnants of which are still visible today in its mill-yard section. A thriving arts community has sprouted in this area in recent years. The Picker Building houses more than 30 studios showcasing jewelry, photography, pottery, and paintings of the Founding Fathers’ dogs playing poker.

On the other side of the canal, the city’s history is preserved in a pair of museums: the Florence H. Speare Memorial Museum and the Abbot-Spalding House, which was once the home of the city’s founder. Just a few blocks away, Mine Falls Park contains a section of the Nashua River Rail Trail, a 17-mile bike path that follows the river into Massachusetts.

One-Night Stay for Two, Valid Sunday–Thursday, or Two-Night Stay for Two, Valid Any Day

Rustic Seclusion in New England Country Home

Within the White Mountain National Forest, the Presidential Range contains the state’s highest peaks, each named for notable statesmen. Among the summits, Mount Washington, Mount Adams, and Mount Jefferson each soar more than a mile above sea level. To the west, the AAA Four Diamond Adair Country Inn & Restaurant overlooks these notable monoliths from 200 acres of rolling slopes and lofty evergreens. Built in 1927 as a father’s wedding gift to his daughter, the tranquil inn’s double brick chimneys and slate-hued mansard roof evoke a sense of classic New England charm, complemented by the hospitality of innkeepers Ilja and Brad Chapman.

Four rustic fireplace rooms—each named for a nearby peak—shelter antique furnishings beneath slanted roofs and dormer windows. Wingback armchairs cluster around a cast-iron stove fireplace and bask in the crackling warmth. A waiting welcome basket overflows with local goodies, such as maple syrup and maple cookies. At the onsite restaurant, open for dinner Thursday–Monday, chef Orlo Coots whips up roast duck breast and other New England specialties. For breakfast, gourmet fluffy popover rolls and apple-cider-cured bacon emerge from the kitchen. The sweet smells of fresh-baked cookies waft through the inn during afternoon tea.

In the winter, free snowshoe rentals spare winter boots the embarrassment of strapping onto tennis rackets. Nearby trails cut through birch and pine groves filled with wintering moose and white-tailed deer. In tribute to the outdoor splendor, the inn’s extensive green policy includes recycling, composting, and raising seedlings as a registered tree farm.

White Mountains: Alpine Skiing in Historical Landscape

Innkeepers Ilja and Brad can point the way to prime hiking paths and wildlife-sighting hotspots, such as Moose Alley, a road famous for moose sightings. Slightly farther afield, Franconia Notch State Park and Crawford Notch State Park fall under the shadow of the White Mountains—a chain with 48 peaks that top 4,000 feet. Within Franconia Notch, skiers at Cannon Mountain can hit the same runs that Olympian Bode Miller learned on.

To complete the picturesque landscape, covered bridges with crosshatched beams or latticed siding near Bath, Lincoln, and Lancaster lure pedestrians to imagine life as a presidential dog walker. Other pieces of the past lurk in Bethlehem’s smattering of antique stores, which offer New Hampshire’s tax-free shopping.

Two-Night Golf Package or Three-Night Stay at Bayside Resort Hotel in Cape Cod

Hotel Centrally Located to Cape Cod Attractions

On maps, Cape Cod looks like New England’s flexed right arm, raising a defiant fist to the mighty Atlantic. In fact, the sea—whose waves crash along a wraparound coast 500 miles long—has always played a leading role in life on the Cape, as evidenced by the white lighthouses still sending their beacons across the water. Bayside Resort Hotel offers a front-row seat to the iconic beachfront from its perch overlooking quiet Lewis Bay.

Bay-view rooms take full advantage of the hotel’s setting, which is just a few miles up the coast from the Kennedy family’s famous summer compound. Common sights from the room include sea birds diving into the bay and ferries motoring between Nantucket and the mainland. Many of the Cape’s most popular restaurants and attractions are situated nearby. At Red Face Jack’s Pub & Sports Bar, Boston sports memorabilia hang from the walls above an elongated L– shaped bar, and patrons while away the hours playing pool and throwing darts in the back room. Those who opt for the golf package will enjoy a pair of rounds at both the Hyannis Golf Course and Atlantic Country Club, which was named the Boston area’s most underrated course by the Boston Globe.

Back at the resort, bartenders at the friendly Moby Dick Pub pour draft beers and mix cocktails beneath a “Ceiling Hall of Fame” thick with dollar bills bearing messages scrawled by regulars past and present. In the arcade, guests try their hand at billiards, foosball, and virtual-reality sock-darning consoles.

West Yarmouth, Massachusetts: Maritime Adventure and Waterfront Fine Dining

West Yarmouth sits on the southern shore of the Cape and is renowned for the lighthouses that preside over its beaches. Elegant, waterfront restaurants and upscale boutiques are scattered throughout the town, and 20 golf courses lie within a 20-minute drive. The Cape’s bevy of charming seaside hamlets, including Provincetown and Falmouth, are also easily accessible for day trips. Kayaking excursions and whale-watching tours provide up-close encounters with the deep and double visitors’ chances of falling in love with a mermaid.

$85 for a One-Night Stay for Two with Food & Beverage Voucher at The Westport Inn in Connecticut (Up to $179 Value)

New England–Style Hospitality with Modern Luxuries

In the skylines of so many tiny, old-fashioned New England towns, the tall, narrow, white steeple, jutting into the sky from a gabled roof, often becomes the dominant focal point. A gilded steeple sits atop the sheet-white center structure of the Westport Inn, too, a stately nod to the surrounding region where main streets are dotted with churches and general stores. Though the inn doesn’t date back to the Paul Revere era—its roots date back to the 1960s—the Westport preserves the colonial charm of its surrounding seaside town, and the inn’s sweeping recent renovations have restored some of the building’s original fixtures, including the stone fireplace in the lobby.

In Erasmosa Restaurant, the onsite eatery, uncovered wooden tables rest atop the hardwood floors as chefs whip up farm-to-table fare for breakfast and dinner. Morning brings such fare as the Farmer’s Garden omelets ($11), egg sandwiches topped with thick-cut bacon roasted in pure maple syrup ($6), and organic tea ($3). American comfort fare dominates the evening lineup, with a focus on naturally raised ingredients sourced from local farms for healthy, hormone-free meals.

Rustic wicker chairs and vases filled with twigs lend an earthy character to the classic rooms. In the bathroom, guests can surround themselves in relaxing, natural scents without bathing in a pile of burning leaves thanks to a stock of all-natural products by UK-based Aromatherapy Associates. Feather bedding adds to the room’s old-fashioned feel, and the room also dons modern luxuries such as LCD TVs and iPod docks.

Westport, Connecticut: Coastal Town Steeped in Art and Culture

Once a farm town on the decline, Westport got a fresh start at the turn of the 20th century as it welcomed an influx of writers and artists retreating from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Creative types continue to flood the area, and a metropolitan feel mingles with the quaint, rural atmosphere. In winter, snow and solitude takes over the mostly residential seaside town. Once the chill dissipates, summertime sees the opening of seasonal playhouses, performing-arts pavilions, and fine-arts festivals.

As the Westport Inn sits next to one of Connecticut’s main thoroughfares, visitors can commute to the livelier Bridgeport and other neighboring towns in less than 20 minutes. At the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, current exhibit Haunted Ridgefield explores local folklore and the psychology of fear with a series of giant, multimedia tunnel books—diorama-like pieces with panels cut out that depict bizarre creatures and eerie environments. Families can take advantage of the winter season by twirling in circles at ice-skating rinks or by group-hugging a snowman before it dies.

What You Get

  • One-night stay in classic room for two adults and up to two kids
  • $50 food & beverage voucher to Eramosa Restaurant

Amenities

  • Onsite Eramosa Restaurant
  • Indoor pool
  • Coffee and juice bar
