FUN FACT: What became the Mountain View Grand Resort in Whitefield conjures up a very old story. Two weary travelers were on their way to Boston when their stagecoach overturned. They stopped at an old farmhouse and the owners took them in and, although they originally planned to be away for one night, once they saw the spectacular views of the White Mountains, they decided to stay for a week. The year was 1865. That is how the Mountain View Grand Resort became a destination and a most enchanting establishment.
