Great way to reach the summit if you can't drive up (ie afraid of heights). Plan ahead the weather can be dreadful. For more information see my post on Mt. Washington road trip. Don't miss the visitor center at base of railroad.

We stayed in the Octagon building, which could have been really cool. We pulled up to the building after checking in only to find that the building was locked. After walking down the hill to the lobby, we were told that we could only access the Octagon through a hallway from the main building and then an elevator or stairs...

Quiet, reasonable, beautifully maintained oasis, perfect for visitors to Loyola Univ. or Towson. I stumbled on this gem a couple of years ago, and always seek it out for an occasional overnight while visiting my Loyola student. Continental breakfast is ok, bolstered by Starbucks coffee.
