Visited in off season,mid-november,and we were very happy with this economically priced hotel. Very friendly owner and clean room at a great price. Nice outdoor fireplace and pool,which was not open this time of year. Not far from Littleton. Basic continental breakfast we did not use but it seemed adequate for the price. It appeared our room had new carpet... More

Recently decorated room, clean throughout with good amenities, fridge, microwave, coffee machine etc. Complimentary breakfast available in breakfast with a great view over the river. Friendly welcome from the owners at check in. The only down side is lack of restaurants nearby with just one in walking distance

Received a reasonable rate at the end of the tourist season. But also found the room close to being shut down for the season. Heat off and took most of the evening to get the room warm. Room was large, faced the road but also faced the pleasant sounding brook flowing over rocks. Breakfast very minimal.

We stayed at Hillwinds Lodge one night on our way to the Kancamagus road. The room was very clean and spacious, the owner is very friendly. The breakfast was served in a dining room with windows facing the river - a lovely view. The breakfast had everything we needed. We would certainly recommend staying here!

I was recently married in Franconia on the same weekend as the Highland Games. We called dozens of hotels trying to book rooms over a year in advance and they all laughed in our face or told us to change our wedding date because they would make so much more money leaving them open for the games. All except the... More

We selected this hotel based merely on location and price. Decent location for visiting White Mountains. Arrived after midnight, but management was informed ahead of time. Our room key was waiting for us at front desk. Left early the next morning following complimentary continental breakfast in hotel lobby. Outdoor pool was already closed for the season, but looked nice. Inviting... More

The staff at Hillwinds were some of the nicest and most helpful people I have ever met. Anything you need, and they took care of it for you. The rooms are simple, but very clean and comfortable. They have lovely views of a small stream that runs right in front of the lodge. I really enjoyed staying here and can't... More

Near a river, motel-lounge style with basic amendments. Clean. Nice for an overnight stay. Breakfast is very modest, but free :) Friendly personnel, and whole impression is very good. Hope to visit again!
