The resort is an easy two-hour drive from the best airport, in Manchester, New Hampshire, USA, and points south via I-93, through Franconia Notch, to US3, and US302. It is also about two hours from I-95 in both Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA (via NH 16 to US 302), and in Lewiston-Auburn, Maine, USA (via ME 11 and US 302), through North Conway, the Mount Washington Valley, and Crawford Notch. All these routes pass through some of the most spectacular geologic and mountain scenery in northern New England. Other routes are possible; direction inquiries should use “310 Mt. Washington Hotel Road, Bretton Woods, NH 03575, USA” as the destination address.
In mid- to late March, Bretton Woods is emerging from winter and moving rapidly into spring. Daily temperatures are generally in the 40s and 50s, with nighttime temperatures in the 20s and 30s. In sheltered spots, daytime temperatures routinely reach the upper 50s and lower 60s. Skies are generally clear to partly cloudy with occasional periods of light snow or flurries, and winds are light to breezy during the day. While significant snow events are possible in mid-March, their frequency is much less than just a few weeks earlier in the season. Warm outer clothing with hat, ear protection, and gloves are a must, as is warm, water-resistant footwear, especially if you plan to engage in any of the many opportunities for outdoor recreation at the resort.
