Want to explore Lake Winnipesaukee? Take a cruise! The Mount Washington Cruise offers 2 ½ hour scenic cruises from May through October and stops in five different ports throughout the week. We took our trip in October, so we could take in all the beautiful foliage New England has to offer!

Sunday Champagne Brunch Cruise
We decided on a Sunday Champagne Brunch Cruise, which was perfect! Our plates were filled with Belgian waffles, eggs, home fries, shrimp cocktail, finger rolls, fresh fruit, cookies, and more. There was plenty of seating and we decided to dine inside, as it was a bit windy. We opened up the windows, sipped our mimosas, breathed in the crisp autumn air, and took in some spectacular sights. Just look at all of that color!
What took you so long?
That's what I keep asking myself, as I come to the realization that it has been nearly 4 decades, since I last sailed on the Mount Washington! That is me with my brother and sister back in 1980 (I am on the right) when we were just kiddos. Fast forward to 2019 and my brother and I are back on board. What great memories! ❤️
Don't forget to check out the gift shop, before you depart! No captain hats for us this year, but I did pick myself up a really nice magnet.
