Thanks for your interest in the re-birth of The Balsams! Here’s just some of what you can expect.
A Legendary Property. The Balsams was founded in 1866 as an exquisite summer inn for travelers looking to explore Dixville Notch and the White Mountains. Over the next century, The Balsams transformed into a 400-room grand resort renowned for its hospitality, cuisine, and spectacular setting. It served dignitaries and vacationers (including Warren Harding, Teddy Roosevelt, Babe Ruth, Frank Sinatra, and the Marx Brothers) who arrived for the summer season, took in scenic vistas, and dined three times a day on delicacies from the local area.
A Resort for Today’s Lifestyle – and beyond. Architecturally faithful to the past, The Balsams will be reborn as a four-season resort for today – and the next century. It will feature every amenity and service you could desire – from outdoor pursuits to the finest dining. Yoga, Nordic baths (a spa unlike any in New England), golf, skiing, 100km of trails – and much more. Hang your car keys up when you get here. You won’t need them until it’s time to go home.
An Unprecedented Ski Expansion. With a base camp at 2,350 feet above sea level, in a true alpine climate zone, skiers and riders will experience dependable snow and a longer season. These natural gifts are combined with an ambitious mountain-wide expansion that includes a gondola departing from the Great Lawn, next-generation snowmaking, and up-mountain dining. With terrain for every experience level, The Balsams will be the most varied and technically advanced ski resort on the East Coast.
Amazing Golf. Few golf course architects are as revered as Donald Ross, who designed some of the most famous courses in North America. The course at The Balsams is one of his gems – and we’re bringing this stunningly beautiful facility back to life.
A Breathtaking Stage. Nestled within the grandeur of the northern White Mountains in Dixville Notch, NH, The Balsams sits on 11,000 sprawling acres of breathtaking wilderness that is nothing less than spectacular. 4,200 acres are in conservation and will remain untouched. This is a place destined to be the setting for one of the best four-season resorts ever imagined, anywhere.
Be Part of the Rebirth of a Legend. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Hampshire House, we’re giving it a glorious renovation, and for a short time we’re offering the rare opportunity to own a part of it. With the introduction of The Century Club, resort ownership has never been more accessible or rewarding.
