Whether they belong on the top shelf or in the top drawer, you like things that meet or exceed your high expectations. And while this week's Escape in the White Mountain National Forest is top-notch, it's not out of reach.

Look out over Mount Hope and Mount Crawford during a two-night stay for two at the Notchland Inn—an 1860s granite mansion situated on 100 sprawling acres—in a deluxe room with a shower and fireplace on Sundays to Thursdays ($196) or Fridays and Saturdays ($244), or in a deluxe room with a shower, bathtub, and fireplace on Sundays to Thursdays ($220) or Fridays and Saturdays ($275).

Enjoy other first-rate amenities including daily breakfast for two; a $25 credit toward the inn's five-course dinner; a welcome bag with hand warmers, bottled waters, trail mix, and local maps; a split of champagne; and half-day snowshoe rentals for two.

Before heading out into the White Mountain National Forest, a land of superlatives, fill up on blueberry or apple pancakes, French toast, eggs any style, or oatmeal—just some of the options available each morning.

Then strap on your snowshoe rentals, and go above and beyond the groomed trails to the quiet backcountry. Later, get sky-high as you climb the icy terrain of Frankenstein Cliff or schuss down the slopes at Wildcat Mountain, Cranmore Mountain Resort, or Attitash Mountain Resort (all within 30 minutes of the inn).

To taste blue-ribbon beers, stop by Tuckerman Brewing Company before heading back to the inn for a fireside five-course dinner that is in a class by itself. The chef uses fresh and first-rate ingredients to whip up seasonal and inventive dishes, such as mustard and crumb-crusted haddock (served with juniper red wine sauce) and grilled lamb chops, which come topped with a tapenade vinaigrette.

And the desserts? Topflight, with a couple of standouts: Devour maple pecan pie and triple chocolate brownies served with peppermint stick ice cream before returning to your cozy room to light a fire in your wood-burning fireplace.

Go ahead—take it up a notch with over-the-top cuisine and amenities on an Escape that won't hit the roof of your budget.

  • "Built in 1862 by Sam Bemis, America's grandfather of landscape photography, the house conveys mountain charm on a scale unmatched in New England. It's simply a legendary setting in Crawford Notch, in the middle of the forest surrounded by the mountains."
