How do you define luxury? An in-room jacuzzi? Prime cuts of steak and a bottle of French wine brought to your bedside? How about a ridiculously high thread count on the softest sheets you’ve ever slept on? Well, whatever your definition, these luxury hotels in New Hampshire hotels have you covered, and they’re bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Omni Mount Washington Resort

It’s near impossible to experience cabin fever at this four-star hotel in New Hampshire. When you’re not being massaged in the 25,000sqft (2,322sqm) spa or clubbing on the Mount Washington Golf Course, the concierge can schedule everything for you – from ski and snowboarding lessons to horseback and carriage rides around the property.

2. Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa

Spoil yourself at Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa. We’re talking the whole nine yards: manicures and massages at the spa, whitewater rafting and fishing in the Androscoggin River, hiking and snowmobiling at Weeks State Park and, when you’re ready for refreshments, beer and wine tastings. On a wilder note, you might try a dog-sledding adventure or competitive ax-throwing session while the kids pet sheep, llamas and goats at Mountain View Farm.

3. Wentworth by the Sea, a Marriott Hotel and Spa

If you’re jaded by conventional luxury hotels, you’ll be blown away by a weekend at Wentworth by the Sea, a Marriott Hotel and Spa. It’s on a remarkable island, New Castle, and you’ll have magical waterfront views if you dock yourself in a marina suite. Walk beside the ocean and play golf at Wentworth by the Sea Country Club while your partner idles at the Spa. And if you want more splendid isolation still, head off on a breezy harbor cruise.

4. The Inn at Thorn Hill and Spa

Experience the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation – with just the right blend of luxury and comfort – at the Inn at Thorn Hill and Spa. You’re at the foot of the White Mountain National Forest and have 500mi (800km) of trails to satisfy your every hiking need. When you’re done roaming, slip out of your boots and into the spa for the signature treatment – devised to melt away tension and soreness in every muscle. Don’t want to be alone? Invite a group and spend a few luxury days here in the 12-person Carriage House, cuddled up by the toasty fireplace.

5. RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain

You’ll probably only manage a slack-jawed, silent “wow” on seeing the grand kitchen and panoramic mountain views in your suite at RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain. The splendid foot soaks and rejuvenating facials at the Solstice North Day Spa will elicit only whimpers, while the delicate notes of locally made vino from Seven Birches Winery will make you go, “mmmm.” No words do this place justice, so embrace the speechlessness and relax.

6. Bedford Village Inn

After a multi-million dollar renovation, this place deserves respect – so please wipe your feet before entering your room, resplendent with an Italian-marble bathroom, a whirlpool tub and a carefully crafted four-poster bed. You might request a chef’s cheese board for your arrival, but we say hang on for caramelized New Bedford sea scallops at the Dining Room, crispy crab cakes at the Tavern or sesame-roasted Faroe Island salmon skewers at the Lobby Bar.

7. Lake House at Ferry Point Inn

The service of a five-star hotel meets the laid-back charm of a country cottage at the Lake House at Ferry Point Inn. It’s the sole lakefront B&B in the New Hampshire Lake Region, so take advantage and head for a kayak or a swim in Lake Winnisquam. Then again you could just curl up with a book, glancing at the waters, gardens and fauna from your bedside bay windows. Just remember to sneak down to the dining area for home-made brownies and cookies, fresh out of the oven.

8. Mountain Edge Resort and Spa

The beach, bar, slopes and spa – everything’s easily accessible from your warm, rustic, wood-accented suite. Sound too good to be true? It isn’t at Mountain Edge Resort and Spa; Mount Sunapee State Park Beach, Salt Hill Pub and the spa are steps from your suite while skiing and snowboarding are a shuttle hop away. Mount Edge may have been around for over a century but don’t wait any longer to plan a family vacation you’ll all cherish for years to come.

9. Black Bear Lodge

Luxury and all-inclusive go hand in hand at Black Bear Lodge. Park your car and pack away the keys for the rest of your visit. You can be on the slopes, at the sauna, in the gym or in the game room within moments of leaving your suite. You can hike, swim, tube, ice skate or play tennis at a moment’s notice, but we’ll be frank, the second you slip into the outdoor hot tub, you’ll be doing nothing for a while except simmering gently and admiring the White Mountains.

10. Omni Bretton Arms Inn at Mount Washington

Not to be confused with the Omni Mount Washington Resort above, the Omni Bretton Inn at Mount Washington looks as if it slid from the pages of a romance novel. Time-honored rooms and picturesque gardens provide a romantic backdrop for all this New Hampshire luxury hotel. Eat fireside in the Bretton Arms Dining Room, selecting from the wine-pairing menu and trying the decadent warm apple-cherry cobbler, accompanied by New Hampshire vanilla ice cream.

11. Lake Opechee Inn and Spa

Lake Opechee Inn and Spa is simply swimming in comfort, charm and luxury. We’re talking wine-ding down with a long-stemmed glass by the lake’s edge, spending a rainy day soaking in the indoor pool and indulging in one body treatment after another at the Tranquility Springs Wellness Spa. When you’re putty-soft from all the pampering, make your social media followers green with amazing selfies against the stunning scenery of the Lakes Region.
