I just stayed at the Lantern Resort Motel for 3 nights. This is the first review I've ever written and I am motivated to write it because of the quality of the customer service my family received. The employees were all very helpful - one person searched high and low for a can opener for me after I forgot to... More

This place is diagonally across the street from Santa's Village. They have activities every night for the kids, including a hayride, arts and crafts, a campfire sing a long and marshmallow roasting. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Mini Fridge and microwave included. Even the blinds were dust free. The grounds are well kept as well. Two pools, a... More

This motel was a great value and is across the street from Santa's Village. There is also a campground on site but we were staying at the motel. Very pleasant staff on check in and check out. Rooms include tv with cable, microwave and small fridge. There are 2 pools, a playground and a store on site. Wonderful for families!

This was our first time staying in Jefferson NH and we decided on The Lantern because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and I couldnt be more excited to add my own review. I have two small children who absolutely had a wonderful time! Between the out door play area, the goats, the pools, hayrides, marshmallow roasting and daily kid... More

I have probably been to about 100 campgrounds in my adult life and can honestly say this is the cleanest one I have ever been to. We stayed in the motel and our friends brought their camper. Both the Motel and Campground were awesome! The staff is very friendly, there are tons of kid's activities, there are two huge pools... More

I 1st called up asking questions (tons of questions). Why? Because I had not been camping on my own & my wife had never really camped before. It took years to get her to say yes to camping. Norma was very kind & patient. She answered all of my concerns & made me feel confident I could pull it off.... More

The price and accommodations are reasonable...but other than the flies which are all over the area and cellphone reception which is weak.My family always has an unbelievable time with the hayrides,pools, and friendly staff.

We stayed here recently with our 2 year old triplets. We had a great time! The motel room had 2 double beds and was still big enough to set up the kids pack and plays. We had plenty of room to walk around them. The property is in walking distance to Santa's Village...Perfect! The staff is wonderful. We met the... More

The Lantern Motel and Campground is fantastic. We have been staying at the motel for 10 years. The location is great. Right across the street is Santa's Village. Down the street is Fort Jefferson. There are numerous places to eat and grocery stores a few minutes down the road in Lancaster. The motel's guest have full use of the campground's... More

We stayed in the motel and it was perfect for what we needed! The room was clean and big enough for us. The room felt damp even with the air running full speed, not bad just trying to get towels dried was impossible. We stayed with the Santa's Village package which included one morning of free Farmer John's breakfast. It... More
