About Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa
Established in 1865, the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa is a statuesque hilltop estate nestled on 1,700 acres in the charming town of Whitefield, New Hampshire, affording breathtaking mountain vistas. Once the playground of presidents and movies stars, the historic resort has garnered such prestige as AAA Four Diamond awards in lodging and dining.
Occupying the resort’s top floor is the full-service spa, offering unparalleled views, which can be seen from the signature Colonial Revival observation tower. Recreational opportunities abound year-round, with opportunities to celebrate New England’s natural beauty through hiking, swimming, horseback riding, tennis and golf on the nine-hole course, where former golfers include President Dwight Eisenhower.

The Spa at Mountain View Grand, awarded as a top-five resort spa in North America by Condè Nast Traveler, features ten treatment rooms, exquisite mountain views and a menu of more than 60 treatments.
An architectural centerpiece of the spa is its Colonial Revival-style observation Tower, a beautiful space designed for couples and romantics, outfitted with such amenities as an infinity-edge Japanese-style Ofuro tub, a 252-jet chroma tub and hydrotherapy treatments sourced with pure water from the White Mountains.
All spa services can be tailored toward couples, and spa packages are designed for gentlemen spa-goers, brides-to-be, moms-to-be, best friends and mother-daughter teams. Guests can also indulge in the signature Ultimate Lavender Dreams Experience, a combination of a full-body scrub, hot stone massage with lavender essential oils, a body wrap and scalp and foot massage.
