Enjoy the best that the White Mountains have to offer in this luxurious log home built as close to the National Forest as the law allows. Walk to the hiking trails, or cheat and drive the famous Auto Road to the scenic vista atop Mount Washington... just minutes away from your door.
The kids will love Storyland, Santa's Village, Six-Gun City, and the Attitash mountain slide and waterslides. Or just take them to one of the dozens of great natural swimming holes along the Swift and Saco rivers. With an inner tube, one can travel all the way to North Conway! There is also boating and rafting, with guided trips just a short drive away.
If it's civilization you crave, a 20 minute drive will bring you to North Conway, with its' legendary shopping, spas and restaurants. And some of the most scenic golf you will find anywhere is right here, with championship courses to the north, south, east, and west.
And when the weather turns, skiers and snowboarders can take advantage of the most continuous vertical in the East at Wildcat Mountain, just 10 minutes away. Crowds? Forget it. Unlike most mountains in the East, Wildcat has no slopeside lodging. With acres of terrain and the fastest quad in the state, lift lines never get longer than 10 minutes. Factor in the reliable snow and great apres-ski at the mountain or in nearby Jackson, and you will agree... this is the very best of New England skiing.
Of course, if downhill skiing isn't your game, bring a snowmobile. Or snowshoes. Or cross country skis. The White Mountains are where the action is... come on and be a part of it.
And when you are done enjoying what Mother Nature has provided... when the action stops, and it is time to relax, send the kids off to watch Elmo on one of two 48in HDTVs with Dish Network and settle into the hot tub in the spa. Hang out in the bar and catch up on the latest sporting event.
Or settle in front of a roaring fire and just enjoy some peace and solitude. Make a nice meal in the modern and fully provisioned kitchen.
When it's time to hit the rack, set your weary bones to rest in the resort-quality beds with luxurious high thread linens and a selection of ultra-comfy pillows that will leave even the most restless sleepers fully refreshed.
Whatever you like to do, if it involves the great outdoors, you will find it here, in this Land of Many Uses. Make your visit to the White Mountains unforgettable by staying in this luxurious and beautiful mountain chalet while you are here.
It's your vacation. Make the most of it.
The White Mountain Chalet is jointly owned by several family members; we love to get all three generations of us together, and this place is perfect for family get togethers and/or to go away on vacation with another family or two.
We bought here because it is the closest that one can come to the White Mountain National Forest. We are literally walking distance to hundreds of miles of hiking trails in the Presidential Range, and by car we are 5 mins from Mt. Washington, 10 mins from Wildcat Mountain, and 1/2 hour to North Conway (shopping) as well as Attitash Water Park and Storyland or Santa's Village.
In Spring, summer and fall, hiking or enjoying NH's spectacular fall foliage is easy; some of the best trails are within a mile or so of the front door. In the winter Wildcat provides the most continuous vertical in the Eastern United States, with terrain for all skill levels. And we are minutes away from an amazing network of snowmobile trails that crisscrosses all of New England, extending well into Canada.
