Whitefield, N.H.(PRNewswire/ -- A complimentary children's program with eco-friendly activities, a 121-foot wind turbine, and a farm filled with barnyard animals await vacationing families at Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa in New Hampshire's White Mountains.


The new wind turbine will impress young and old, as guests learn about wind speed and power production viewed through a real-time monitor in the lobby. The on-site greenhouse gives kids the chance to get their hands dirty planting maple tree seedlings and fast-growing veggies that can be taken home in a small pot. Located just a short stroll from the historic resort, families will enjoy exploring Mountain View Farm, home to miniature donkeys, dwarf goats and a small flock of Leicester Longwool Sheep, a critically endangered breed.

Mountain View Grand combines spectacular views and casual elegance with the comfort of AAA Four Diamond Lodging and Dining, New Hampshire's only hotel or resort to earn this honor for the past three years in a row. Families on vacation enjoy golf, hiking, biking, heated indoor and outdoor pools, Classic Clay tennis courts, evening barbecues at the clubhouse, a movie theater, and marshmallow toasting by an open fire. Kids make friends at the Mountaineering Club and love complimentary activities like cardboard boat races, frog hunts and jumping contests, horseback riding and more. Two of New England's premiere children's theme parks, Santa's Village and Six Gun City, are located within 20 minutes from the resort and are only five minutes from each other. Parents who want to relax and rejuvenate when the kids are at play will enjoy the Tower Spa, recognized by Conde Nast Traveler among the best in the United States.

Green-minded families will appreciate the many environmentally conscious projects undertaken by Mountain View Grand, recently designated as a 100% Green Power Purchaser by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The New Hampshire resort's green initiatives include a comprehensive recycling program; using energy-saving light bulbs; recycling cooking oil to make diesel fuel; using its water tower to irrigate the golf course and grounds; growing its own vegetables and flowers; implementing a towel and linen reuse program; and buying locally produced food and beverage products.
