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...

Our guestroom at the Horse and Hound was spacious but slightly spartan – a refreshing change of style after staying in a number of historic-house b&b’s full – sometimes to overflowing - of interesting furniture and curios. The Horse and Hound’s common areas have been beautifully renovated/restored and furnished in a rather different, rustic style. We particularly enjoyed the ambiance... More

Out of town, but conveniently located to all the outdoor attractions. It has been completely renovated during the last few years and presents itself well. For those of you who like hardwood floors, a large wood paneled reading room with tea and coffe provided and comfortable rooms, you should enjoy this inn. Very peaceful and quiet setting backing up on... More

This is a beautifully restored inn with a wonderful chef on staff. The food was delicious. The owner has a beagle named Katie and she was very sweet. It is set in a quite location but close to the freeways and natural attractions in and around Franconia. The furniture in the bedrooms was custom made by local craftsmen.

This is a lovingly restored inn with spacious, well-tended grounds and an eye for detail. The dining room menu includes local fare -- some from the property's own gardens. Our perfect stay included a glass of wine in the comfortable lawn chairs, dinner on the patio, and a good night's sleep in the quiet and comfortable bedroom. Breakfast the next... More

The idea looked great on the internet, but in real life with the inn's restaurant closed, it just wasn't as fun as we hoped it would be. There seemed to be little in the area in the way of good restaurants to choose from. Under those circumstances, one is a little isolated, and there wasn't a lot to make us... More

The Horse and Hound is a country inn down a quite road but near many of the activities and sights of the White Mountain area. Your host is Doug who is very friendly always takes the time to talk with you and answer any questions about the area or give suggestions on trails you might want to hike or sights... More

We loved the ambience of the B&B. Surrounding was so peaceful too. We drove there from Ontario, stayed there for a night, and then started our hike in the White Mountains next morning. It was very conveniently located for it.

This place is an example to others as to how to run a Inn. Genuine welcome, a host who actually sits and talks with many of his guests, superb food, comfortable beds with decent linens, gorgeous gardens in a great location, simple, stylish and classy mix of furniture in the lounge/library area - all together, this is an example to...
