Lunch spot near Mount Washington, NH

TonyO Apr 18, 2007 06:22 PM

We are staying at The Mount Washington Hotel in early June. I would appreciate any lunch spots that are reasonably close (1/2 hour). Thanks as always !

    Well...there's not much of anything within 1/2 hour of the hotel other than the hotel-owned properties. Check with them to see which of their restaurants will be open and serving lunch during your stay. If it's open, Stickney's (in the basement level of the hotel) is very nice. I was looking forward to lunch there last November, but they were closed for renovations. Fabyian's Station is located just 1/4 mile north of the hotel in an old RR station, and they're almost always open. They have casual pub food. Lots of choices in North Conway, but that will take more than 1/2 hour. Bartlett would be closer, but I'm not sure what's there. You might also check out the new Applachian Mountain Club visitor center. I think they serve some meals. Stop back and let us know what you find.

        Portland ME is 2.5 hrs away - maybe it's the RI'er in me, but that is a separate vacation, not a drive for dinner.

        TonyO, I'd suggest Polly's Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill (Franconia), 30 mins away.

        I seem to recall a place called the Mooseland Grill right down the road that wasn't too bad. Served up bar n grill type food and plenty of the local beer.

        Edited - Wow! A quick search on the interweb revealed that the Mooseland Grill burned down in Jan 2006. Bummer.

          If you drive down past Crawford Notch into Jackson, there are some nice lunch places. We had a good meal on the deck at the Thompson House Eatery. It's about 30 minutes from the MWH.

            Think it's a close drive to N. Woodstock - but I remember one of the best breakfasts at Woodstock Inn & Station, they also have lunch and dinner. (doesn't look too far) and has a nice brunch on Sunday if thats your day for venturing out.

              If you want non resort food try Cold Mountain Cafe in Bethlehem or Faden's BBQ in Littleton.

                I was going to suggest the little cafe in the Hotel. I've stopped by there for a beer or hot chocolate after a hike/ski. The view of the mountain alone is worth whatever they charge for a burger...

                But, if you're up for a scenic drive, you could check out the other grand hotel in the area, the Mountain View Grand: http://www.mountainviewgrand.com/. The view is gorgeous there also. They have a pub there that I've been in. Again, I'd go there mostly for the view, but it really is worth a visit (if you like scenic grand hotels).

                I also like the North Conway, Jackson and Bartlett areas, but don't have any recent lunch experience there. I normally get my meals to eat along the trail, when in the White Mountains.

                  Right next to the Wiley house in crawford notch, approx 15 min from the hotel is a gift store which serves ice cream and snacks. They have THE best chili. Very spicy and good. I look forward to it on every trip.
