The owners, Sue and Chet Thompson are running a family friendly B & B with 4 star meals. The bed rooms are named after local places with comfortable beds. The breakfast can be a quick serve yourself or something home made on the griddle. Only minutes from Cannon Mountain-don't miss the ski museum or aerial tram. If you ask nicely,... More

This lovely wee spot is everything a B and B should be. Homely, comfy and welcoming. Sue and Chet are great hosts. I had a GREAT value single room and a shared bathroom which was no inconvenience whatsoever. A delicious home made breakfast was ( almost ) worth the cost of the stay alone! i settled myself by one of... More

When we booked at Kinsman Lodge, we really didn't knew what to expect. We were also worried about the shared bathroom and it's cleanliness. We were welcomed by Sue who is absolutely adorable! The house itself is beautiful, our room was nice and cozy. The shared bathrooms (there are many of them, we never had to wait for someone to... More

So comfortable. You can sit quietly on the porch or in the den, take a stroll, admire the garden and farm fields. Breakfast's main attraction changes each day but fruit, cereal, omelets and eggs to order are always offered.

We spent 2 weekend nights at the Kinsman Lodge and were very impressed. We were in town for the White Mountain Triathlon. Words can not describe how warm and welcoming Sue and Chet were during our stay. They want you to enjoy Franconia and gave us great tips while we were looking for hikes, stores, etc. They also made us... More

Kinsman Lodge is the perfect NH inn. Friendly, welcoming hosts. Beautifully decorated farmhouse that has been in the owner's family for generations. Peaceful, quiet location. Delicious, filling breakfast. Porch for relaxing. I did not want to leave and I dream of returning here!

We spent seven nights at Kinsman Lodge and the whole experience was wonderful. Sue and Chet are charming hosts who do everything they can think of to make you feel at home and to make your stay special. After a long drive across from Mount Desert Island we were welcomed with the offer of coffee and Chet lighting a log... More

We just needed a place to sleep on a busy weekend in New Hampshire, but Sue & Chet made our short stay memorable. The warm, cozy atmosphere of their B & B made you feel at home. There were the Highland Games and Nascar that weekend in New Hampshire so rooms were not too plentiful but Sue made us feel... More

We decided to stay at this Bed & Breakfast at the recommendation of a friend for a weekend of hiking in the White Mountains. The Bed and Breakfast was easy to find, the hosts Sue and Chet were very sweet and welcoming and our room was spacious and clean. Bathrooms are shared but there are enough of them in the... More

We loved our stay of three nights at Kinsman Lodge. Sue goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Disregard the one negative review on this site, and believe all of the positive ones because there are only positives to say about Sue. She is a gem of a person, and thinks of every little thing...
