Our spur-of-the-moment "ghost hunting" trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire brought us to the AMC Highland Center, and what a wonderful discovery! The Center is not a typical hiker's/outdoorsman's retreat, the building is large, clean, and modern with the feeling of an upscale hunting lodge. The accomodations were more than adequate, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was delicious, plentiful, and at an amazingly reasonable price. Though the Center appeared to be rather full, the staff was able to house us in a private, family-friendly room that was very comfortable. We participated in a snow-shoe tour of the maple sugaring on the AMC grounds and in our borrowed snow-shoes set out to explore the surrounding area (all day activities and use of snow-shoes and other outdoor clothing and footware is free!). We definately recommend the Center as a place to stay as a base for exploring the surrounding sites, as an area resource for information about everything from the weather to local legends, and as a warm and friendly place to return to at the end of the day!
