If you are looking for fancy and posh, keep on going. If you like clean, quiet, comfortable, and homey feeling, this is the place. And all with a great price.
Also an excellent location. Easy to get to area attractions.
We had a great stay at Carlsons Lodge. We stayed a week, came as strangers, left as "family".
We were there over Columbus Day weekend, they were full, and we never heard a peep from anyone.
Carol and her daughter Kate were nice, welcoming, and helpful.
The rooms were larger than I thought they would be and had a great view. The grounds were pretty with a few walking trails (snowmobile in the winter) out back.
Hopefully we will make it back there next year.
Thanks again for being part of a great vacation.

Room Tip: I might recommend a second floor room. It being a lodge, the floors are kind of squeeky. I don't...

We only stayed there 1 night and noticed it was a nice comfortable hotel. the views outside the hotel were so beautiful. When you step inside, you are greeted by a friendly staff with smiles, there's a carpeted lobby with a fire place, wood ceiling a piano, couch and in the basement, a game room. To get to your room, you climb a set of carpeted stairs with wooden banisters(railings) and there is an attached balcony. The rooms are very nice, not to mention clean. On the second floor, the rooms are equipped with a kitchen, bathroom/shower unit, 7 beds(2 hide-a-beds, one in the main area and one in the back bedroom, 1 small bed in the main area and 2 regular beds in the back bedroom, 2 ceiling fans, 1 in the main area and 1 in the back bedroom, a heater, closet, dresser drawers with a mirror, telephone and tan-ish colored carpet, and two Phillips TVs, again, 1 in the main area and 1 in the back bedroom. you can't ask for a better view from your window, looking across at New hampshire's famous "Twin Mountain" and the blue mountains with pine trees. The room is very rustic especially in the bathroom and the ceiling not to mention is painted with swirled plaster. At a price so good, you want to stay in a nice lodge such as this. Plus, in the nearby town of Bretton Woods, you can take a trip on the Mount. Washington Cog Railway, they have fantastic views from both up top and on the train. So Make this hotel your #1 choice, believe me, unless something isn't working properly, you won't be disappointed, So stay here. Have an enjoyable time :D

I used to come to Carlson's Lodge all the time when I was younger. I don't get to visit as often as I would like these days, but I love the place. It's in such a great part of the state for all kinds of outdoor activities and the staff is wonderful.
Although we will miss Mr. Carlson a great deal (he built the motel himself and passed away this past spring), his family does a fabulous job running the place. They are so welcoming. It makes a world of difference that the Lodge was family-built and is still family-run. Many of the guests return each year which says a lot about the attention to detail and the overall charm of the motel. Such a perfect place to stay in any season!

A clean place with very nice decorations.

But the staff stole our wallet from a drawer in the room. When we brought it up to the owner (Carol), she simply dismissed it and said that we misplaced it.

After we told her that 3 people saw that wallet in the drawer, she said that she would ask her staff and call us with the results (we were leaving). Of course, she has never called.
