    We spent a night here last summer: Pros: family run, pool, reasonably priced, decent breakfast, clean. Meh: updated enough for family place. The one thing that I felt a bit uncomfortable with is that the owners (very friendly to us) had people who visited annually...More

    Reviewed 5 November 2016

    The room was clean and comfortable, although we felt it could do with a bit of updating. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was good. This is a good place to stay to explore local attractions, such as Franconia Notch State Park.
