Upon arrival I almost felt as if I'd stepped out of a stagecoach and back into a quieter and simpler time. The Inn is beautiful and soothing, full of unique New England charm. The innkeeper Doug is a consummate host - warm and friendly. The rooms are comfortable, warm and inviting. There is daily breakfast, often made by Doug himself... More

We have stayed here a couple of times over the past few years. The inn has been beautifully restored. I love the library/parlor room with the all the wood and old books. There is a shelf of Nancy Drew books which reminded me of how much I loved reading them when I was a child. The rooms are very comfortable,... More

Located on a quiet road with no visible neighbors, we visited this beautiful Inn while attending a reunion. We were met inside the beautiful lobby by Doug, the owner, who is friendly and has a sense of humor. Although our room was small, as are most of the rooms, it was extremely comfortable and clean. I may only have asked... More

My partner and I really loved our stay at the Inn. We slept and had dinner at the Inn. The rooms, a re-creation of what the inn looked like in the 1940s, were immaculately clean and extremely well appointed. The dinner was fabulous (the chef used vegetables and fruits from their garden) and so was breakfast the next morning.

We just loved our stay here. The room was beautifully appointed, spacious (we were upgraded to a larger room at no charge), very clean, and looked out over the back yard and gardens. The en suite bathroom was also well sized and also very clean. We slept like babies. Each morning, our breakfast was perfectly cooked and served promptly with... More

Warm host & hostess in a quaint country inn setting. We had drink and dinner here. beautifully furnished and an outback flower garden. You need to say "hi" to Katie the beagle tied in the back yard. There were 6 in our party and the service was great!

After dining at the Horse & Hound Inn a couple years ago, we vowed to return for a winter getaway of XC skiing, another fabulous meal, and a stay at this gorgeous country Inn. Even with such a "high bar", our expectations were exceeded. From our first welcome at the door to our final goodbyes, we were treated like house... More

This will be our go-to inn for future visits to Franconia. The staff was incredibly attentive and gracious. We felt right at home. Our room was simple - comfortable, fresh and spotless. We loved the understated cozy decor in the common areas. Breakfast was classic, well-prepared fare with excellent coffee. I'm skeptical of small-town inn fine dining but we're very... More

Hats off to the owners of this wonderful inn. Restored to perfection. Wooden panels, fire places, cosy corners, books and board games. The bar is sufficiently stocked. The dining room is divine - the food is even better (breakfast and dinner options will delight the taste buds). We recommend a night cap in the library complete with background music and... More

Went up for a short 2 night stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The Inn is on a quiet road and very quaint without being kitschy. The rooms are large and the inn has a nicely decorated library, lobby, bar and dining area. The staff were incredibly friendly, accommodating, and welcoming. Only a short drive from the Franconia...
