The Olympia Companies has been selected by the Mt. Washington Summit Road Company to operate The Glen House, located near the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road. The Glen House site plan calls for a 68-room, 60,737-square-foot hotel to be built on the west side of Route 16 in Green's Grant.
With an aesthetical nod to its ancestors, The Glen House Hotel will be built in classic New England vernacular, with clapboards and painted trim, similar to the previous four Glen Houses that have stood on its site since 1852. The spacious guestrooms are reflective of the simplicity of Shaker design, while the lobby embraces both the history of the Mt. Washington Auto Road and local Native American roots.
The Glen House Hotel will be close to energy self-sufficient and carbon neutral, thanks to a geothermal system that will provide heating and cooling as well as two offsite energy-generating projects harnessing hydro and solar power.
The hotel will feature a pool and restaurant, with half of the rooms featuring balconies facing the highest summit in the Northeast.
Having broken ground in 2017, The Glen House Hotel is anticipating an opening date of Summer 2018.
