Which historic hotel is known as the Grand Dame of the Sea?
Hint: When it opened in 1874, this hotel was the largest wooden structure on the coast of New Hampshire.

If you guessed Wentworth by the Sea (1874) in New Castle, New Hampshire, you guessed correctly!

Once the largest wooden structure on the New Hampshire coast, this "Grand Dame by the Sea" was a hub for social, business and political luminaries from around the world. The famed “Ship Building,” modeled after the elegant ocean liners of the day, was exceptionally popular and offered sunning ocean views, but every part of Wentworth is remarkable—the property is poised high above a bluff overlooking the ocean and river below, affording each guest room and suite with ocean and/or harbor views.
