Welcome to Crawford Notch & Bretton Woods


Even so, the area remained known mainly to locals and wealthy summer visitors who patronized the grand Mt Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods – until 1944, when President Roosevelt chose the hotel as the site of a conference to establish a post-WWII global economic order.

Today the hotel is as grand as ever, while a steady flow of visitors comes to climb Mt Washington – on foot, or aboard a steam-powered locomotive on the dramatic Mount Washington Cog Railway.
