We stayed in two rooms on the second floor (not the main building). The rooms smelled bad when we first opened the doors. Perhaps they used to be smoking rooms and the smell is still there. The rooms are nicely furnished although some of the pieces have seen better days The air conditioners in both rooms were terrible! Noisy to... More

I was staying here on Oct 4th for 1 night, the room is spacious and clean. The morning continental breakfast is good and fresh. We like the stay and will definitely stay here for the next fall foliage in white mountains.

Stayed here October 1st. And would stay again when in area. Quaint, nostalgic lodge overlooking creek. Huge, clean room with comfortable bed. Quiet night's sleep in tranquil setting. Very welcoming hosts. Adequate continental breakfast provided. Refreshing change from the chain hotels. Met all of our needs and expectations. Reasonably priced. Plus, owner provided us a super recommendation for dinner where... More

My wife enquired about a room for the night for us. The "vacancies" signs were clearly lit, which was why we stopped by in the first place... but the woman at the desk said there weren't any. Didn't look that busy to us... Perhaps she just didn't like my wife. Ah well, their loss.

When I asked my wife about this review, she told me that when the person in question came in to our lobby, she had just taken a reservation over the phone which filled us to capacity on that night (which for us is usually a good thing). She told the woman that we had just filled up, and recommended another... More

Lovely location with rooms overlooking Gale river. 10 minutes drive to Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway and other attractions. The room was very spacious and clean so was the bathroom. Nice and quiet surroundings. Breakfast could have been little better but overall very good and enjoyed the stay. I would definitely recommend it.

This was our first trip to New Hampshire and we were lucky enough to discover this hidden gem of a lodge. The room was a charming clean country style. The gardens at the lodge are lovely and very well maintained. We travel with dogs and I can honestly say in 20 years of doggie hotels this one was by far... More

I have family in Sugar Hill and wanted to visit Littleton as I have any happy memories from that area. This location made those visits great as well as visiting the parks around the area. Coffee was great and breakfast was sufficient. Got busy right as it opened to the masses (0800). Each night, people gathered around the bonfire in... More

Arrived at the hotel and it looked lovely. We paid a small amount extra and were given the end room of the river view rooms. Each has a table and chair outside so it was great to sit there with a beer or two and watch the sun set. Room was large as was the bathroom and also had a... More

Recently stayed at the Hillwinds for 4 nights. Price was very reasonable, amenities were standard for this type of hotel and area, staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. The room and bathroom were neat and clean and it was QUIET. We did not hear neighbors at all. I would recommend Hillwinds to all!

We are yearly visitors to the area, and we usually stayed either in Bethlehem at a family colony, or at a major hotel in nearby towns. But we were glad to find out about "Hillwinds Lodge", where we enjoyed our stay. The room, the beds, the linen, even the carpet and everything else in the room, as well as the... More
