"Home of the Popular Mt. Washington Hotel" Bretton Woods by RhondaRuth

Bretton Woods Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 11 photos

Viewed from the Conway Railroad Notch Train

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 immediately became a favorite summer haunt for poets, presidents and princes.

Bretton Woods is part of a land grant made in 1772 by Royal Governor John Wentworth. The area was named after Bretton Hall, Wentworth's ancestral home in Yorkshire, England.

    Is this THE Bretton Woods? You know, the one where the world monetary conference was held in 1944?

    Great looking hotel although not kind of my usual accommodation! I am neither poet nor president (or prince), yet hehe.
