We stayed in the DRYAD for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Yes, the rooms are somewhat outdated but certainly not shabby. The linens were very nice as were the large, thick towels, and we had a nice, firm queen mattress. The bathroom was clean with plenty of space to store your stuff including several hooks (and good water... More

There were great reviews from last year, so I was encouraged this would be an inexpensive and easy way to visit the area with my father and 4 year old daughter. While I definitely agree there is a lot of potential given the location - so close to Cannon Mountain and the Flume Gorge - the facilities are quite run... More

Westwind Cottages are a GREAT vaule in a beautiful location. It is peaceful & quiet. Cabins were nice & clean - not fancy - and had everything we needed. Nice deck with charcoal grill & chairs. Owners were very nice & helpful. We did not bring pets but saw the MOST AMAZING collection of big dogs with other guests -... More

This property is really amazing. Right at the base of Cannon Mountain, plenty of room to spread out and the owner is one of the nicest guys you ever want to meet. Problem is, it needs some TLC. Property heyday was in the 70's. If you like old school and piece n quiet you will like it here. The cottage... More

If you are looking for a nice, quiet and affordable place in the mountains than this is the place. We stayed at the Arethusa cabin and loved it again (this is our second time). If you don't like the idea of having a stain on the living room ceiling or having to cool the cabin with fans, then this isn't... More

I should point out that we didn't actually stay in these cabins this year. We had booked two cabins - adjoining ones - for a stay in September. About a month after I booked the cabins, with my credit card over the phone, I was called to say that I needed to send them a check. Apparently someone else was... More

When we read the most recent reviews of Westwind Cottages we were kind of worried what to expect. There was no reason for that whatsoever. Eric turned out to be a great, most friendly host (okay, we did not try the swing). The cabins we rented, Zealand 8&9, were great and very nicely priced, completely renovated, clean, spacious, equiped with... More

I came to stay for two nights with my two oldest friends from the UK. It's a great place if you're looking for a friendly, relaxed place. It's not fancy and the places look like they haven't been done up for a while. It's got a great location near to lots of beautiful attractions at Franconia Notch. The best thing... More

I notice that these reviews are all several years old. While Westwind was pretty much what we expected for the cost, others should be forewarned that the property is getting generally run-down so the first impression might be negative. The paint on the cottages is flaking badly and they are in need of general fixing up; the storm door on... More

Thank you for your on-target review. I wish we were able to do the outside updates this year, but we do have them on our radar as we continue to work on the insides. More
