AMC Highland Center at Night (Megan Begley)
New Hampshire lodges video
In the White Mountains’ awe-inspiring Crawford Notch, you’ll lose all sense of time. With magnificent waterfalls, soaring cliffs, and surrounding forest, the natural world will draw you in. Hike to nearby peaks or take a quiet stroll around a mountain lake. Either way, the choice is yours.
The Highland Center is our premier White Mountain lodge and an ideal base for your White Mountain escape. With our full buffet breakfast, fuel up for a hike to the southern Presidential peaks, rock climb nearby Frankenstein Cliffs, or play in Arethusa or Ripley Falls with your family. Then, come back to a hearty, home-cooked dinner and settle into your private room, complete with private bathroom. Bunk space and shared bath options also available in the lodge as well as at Shapleigh Bunkhouse, located on the premises.
