This morning set off for the majestic White Mountains of New Hampshire and the historic Omni Mount Washington Hotel. A grand masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture, The Mount Washington Hotel was a two-year labor of love for 250 master craftsmen. Conceived by industrialist Joseph Stickney, this National Historic Landmark opened in 1902 and at once became a favorite summer haunt for poets, presidents, and princes. Enjoy a self-guided tour of this magnificent hotel followed by a delicious luncheon in the grand dining room. Journey to the Mount Washington Cog Railway for an unforgettable and exciting “once in a lifetime” railing experience. In 1869, the Cog Railway was an engineering marvel, a technology of toothed cog gears, rack rails, and tilted boilers. Enjoy a rare glimpse of this world gone by while enjoying spectacular views as we travel up some of the steepest railroad tracks in existence, before checking into your North Conway hotel for a two-night stay. This evening, gather at the hotel for a light ‘pizza party’ style dinner. Meals – Breakfast, Luncheon, Light Dinner
Please note: the Mount Washington Tour & Luncheon is unavailable on the October 2nd and 8th departure and will be substituted with a luncheon at the Trapp Family Lodge.
