I was there in the offest of off-seasons -- midweek in the late fall, after the leaves had fallen but before the skiing began -- and so I can't fully appreciate what it's like when the game room and TV room and restaurant are going at full-tilt. But I gotta say: This place was sweet. My room had an old-fashioned...

This was our third year in a row... Innkeepers run a weekend special between foliage season and ski season... very reasonable rate that included dinner and breakfast... Great food as well... thinking of returning in the Summer as they have a nice outdoor pool and on-site stables for horseback riding...

We stayed here for 2 nights in October of 2012. What a quaint marvelous Inn!. Outstanding food, beautiful dining room, quiet, rural, near great sights. Bedroom overlooked the horse pasture. Interesting history. Loved the library with puzzles to work on. Sat by the fireplace off the lobby to read. Some of the staff could have been more friendly but they...

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for one night on October 9 on our tour of New England. I had cancelled a reservation elsewhere when I booked because I believed that the Inn had a lot of charm and the receptionist sounded very friendly on the phone. I was severly disappointed with our stay. First, there was no television,...

Just not my kind of place. Had to drag two suitcases up three flights of stairs to a small room with no tv, no a.c. and could hear the people next door in the bathroom. The area is jaw dropping gorgeous but I did n't see the chain in this place. Dining room was average with semi-surly wait staff. Would...

Very nice location. Kind of vintage look and feeling, would be nice to see a renovation of the place, for example the water pipes.. you have to leave running the water for few seconds before it turns out clean. The seating system at the main restaurant was a bit confusing; maybe they were short of personnel. Although, food is great...

Picked this place at random from a local guidebook, and were glad we did. The Inn is slightly off the beaten track and not particularly well signposted but worth taking the time to find. It really is a Country Inn, with a wide verandah overlooking the tennis courts and onto the hills. We used it as a stopover from Maine...

This is a lovely inn with an ideal location in the White Mountains. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the restaurant which was on a par with first-rate city restaurants. All in all, a lovely choice, especially during the fall foliage season.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here. It's a lovely inn in a beautiful location -- views of mountains and fields. Especially pretty during the fall colors. Positives: near easy and challenging hiking trails, tennis, bicycling, horseback riding, swimming in summer, downhill and x-country skiing in winter. Pretty sure you can't run out of activities...

Honestly, I am not much for the typical B&B. We were however looking for a one night stay in the White Mountains over the Labor Day weekend and most properties were either booked or would not accept a one night stay. The Franconia Inn was more than happy to accommodate us. We stayed in room 31 which is on the...
