These cottages came recommended to us. We were warmly greeted by our hosts who made sure to let us know all we needed about the area. Our cottage was extremely clean and had an adorable rustic charm. We enjoyed the fire place as well which gave our cottage a homey feeling. Would definitely stay again when we revisit the area.

Return visit. As always, we were welcomed with smiles and a wagging tail of the other greeter. Rooms are so comfortable with personal touches; photos of local areas and a beautiful quilt. The fireplace completes the ambience. The view outside our window looked like a postcard with the snow.

I really can't say enough about Julie and Gary and the Gilcrest. It just gets better everytime we stay there. The rooms are super clean and fresh and the fireplace in the room is an extra special touch. We usually stay in connection with a ski trip, but this time it was a combined ski and Birthday (my wife's) weekend.... More

I wanted to go skiing in New Hampshire, and was torn where I should stay and where I would ski. After seeing some great reviews I got a motel at Gilcrest, which was 20 minutes from three different mountains. I mostly skied at Cannon Mountain and was very happy. Plus we got 10 inches of snow while we were there... More

I have stayed at Gilcrest Cottages several years ago and remembered I liked it then. I still love it. I particularly love how they think of everything. Right down to the container that held sugar and other condiments for coffee. We are going back again next year and staying an extra day. We both hated to leave. I've claimed the... More

When we travel to northern NH, we have stay at the Gilcrest Cottages and Motel (approximately 8 years in a row). The rooms are always clean and neat, and the proprietors (Gary & Julie and their dog Pemi) are wonderful (more like extended family than proprietors) and have extensive knowledge of the surrounding area, things to do, things to see,...

We just spent a weekend at Gilcrest Cottages. We were up in NH visiting our son who goes to PSU which is only 10 minutes away. We brought our two younger kids ages 11 and 12 and stayed in the Welch & Dickey cottage. We were very impressed by how clean and well kept the cottages are- they do a... More
