Crowds are part and parcel of the skiing experience. Let’s face it: They’re often unavoidable. There are crowds in the parking lots, crowds in the cafeteria, in the après-ski bars, in the lift lines, and sometimes on the slopes. While we all love the wide-open spaces that the great outdoors promise, the reality is that we often have to share the experience. That fact, in itself, isn’t a bad thing.
But there are times when we all crave a little “me time,” whether it’s a romantic getaway with that special someone or a family retreat.
One antidote is the New England Inn & Lodge, tucked away in tiny Intervale, N.H., wedged between Glen and North Conway. First established as an inn called the Mountain Rest in 1809, more than a century before skiing made it’s way to the region, the New England Inn has been in operation since 1906. That makes it the oldest continuously operating inn in the Mount Washington Valley.
And it’s been successful for good reason.
