Hilltop Resort with Views of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region
A warm, sunlit pool always looks inviting, but that’s especially true after a day of exploring the vibrant colors of the fall foliage on a New Hampshire mountain. In the middle of a hardwood forest, within a 20-minute drive of Gunstock Mountain Resort and less than an hour’s drive from Loon Mountain, Waterville Valley, and Ragged Mountain Resort, Steele Hill Resorts houses a steamy glass-atrium pool area.
Many of Steele Hill’s rooms, suites, and townhouses provide exquisite views of the Belknap Mountain Range and Lake Winnisquam. Inside one of the resort’s one-bedroom suites, a private balcony overlooks the lakes and mountains. Each room is slightly different, but many rooms include either a balcony or a patio. Each two-bedroom west townhouse, meanwhile, is good for a large family or group—they offer two bathrooms, a living room with a sleeper sofa, and plenty of space.
You’ll find numerous things to do on the property, starting with dinner at The Hilltop Restaurant, where chefs prepare chicken saltimbocca and bison burgers surrounded by views of the New Hampshire countryside. Elsewhere, you can explore the resort’s 5 miles of wanderable trails. Children who bring their own toboggans can whiz down the sledding hill or head over to play the Xbox Kinect in the main building’s lobby.
