|The Mountain View Grand Resort|
We arrived around noon on Sunday afternoon. There were not a lot of signs a long the way, but it wasn't difficult to find the hotel. It is a large beautiful yellow resort sitting atop a hill with a windmill looming in the sky overhead. The parking lot had plenty of space, but unfortunately our room was not ready yet. We pulled on our ski pants and walked out to the pro shop to pickup our rental gear and hit the trails. The rental was $16/adult and we were out on our skis in no time. Unfortunately, there wasn't too much snow, but we still were able to enjoy ourselves as we navigated through the woods. The trails were well marked and by the time we were done for the day, our room was ready.
The lobby was nice, but not as grand at the Omni Mt. Washington. On the other hand, our room here was beautiful and much nicer than the Omni. We had a beautiful corner room with awesome views of the mountains. We walked around the property a bit before ending up in the 1865 Wine Cellar for a wine tasting. Our selections were a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and a Chianti Classico. The wine cellar was very romantic; we came back later that night for dinner.
The next morning, we woke up early and went out to the farm for a "Meet the Farmer" talk. The farmers took us through the barn and let the kids pick some eggs and pet the goats. I also pet some goats because I couldn't resist. After the talk, we had a delicious buffet breakfast before heading back home. It was a nice little day up in the White Mountains, but I'm still undecided on which resort I like more!
