Rosebrook Lodge is a four-season facility located on the mountain at Omni Bretton Woods ski area. TruexCullins designed the interior of the two-story lodge, working in collaboration with architects Bull Stockwell Allen of San Francisco, CA. The project opened in the fall of 2020.

The Lodge is accessed from the top of the newly opened Skyway Gondola. The site offers panoramic views of Mt. Washington and the entire Presidential Range. Guests enter into a two-story atrium, illuminated by a sculptural steel-and-wood pendant installation. From the outside, the atrium acts as a lantern, a beacon visible from as far away as the Mt. Washington Resort below.

The building houses a variety of dine-in and grab-and-go food options, including Switchback Grille, a restaurant with European-inspired appetizers and entrees; Peaks Café, serving beverages and bakery items; and Crystal Hills, a food outlet catering to skiers and riders. The upper level also serves as an events hall available for weddings and other private events.
The Rosebrook Lodge is owned and operated by Omni Hotels & Resorts of Dallas, Texas. The TruexCullins interior design team includes Principal Kim Deetjen, ASID, Associate Principal Marc DeSmet; and Associate Principal Matt Bushey, AIA.
