Rosebrook Lodge Dining

Located at the summit of Bretton Woods, enjoy stunning panoramic views of Mount Washington and the entire Presidential Range from our new Rosebrook Lodge, winner of Hospitality Design Magazine's 2022 Annual HD Awards for event spaces! The lodge has both the Switchback Grille and Peaks Café for several dining options. 

Please note that a scenic gondola ride ticket does not guarantee seating at Switchback Grille. Limited seating is first come, first served. Wait times can be expected on peak days. Please plan accordingly. Dates, hours and seasonal activities subject to change. Scenic tickets may not be used for skiing, snowboarding or other activities that require a trail pass.


Our Skyway Gondola is open for scenic rides and is wheelchair accessible via a carpet path our team places over the snow to make it a smoother transition. Once you get to the summit, the unloading platform is heated, so no need to worry about ground snow up top! Our Rosebrook Lodge is outfitted with automatic doors and an elevator bringing you a front row view while staying warm next to the fire place.

Have a pet?
Bring them along on the gondola ride. Animals must be on leashes while on property and you are responsible for cleaning up after them. Service animals are allowed indoors while on property, however, personal pets are not. This includes the Base Lodge and the Rosebrook Lodge.
