This was our 5th stay. Prices are great. The river outback has chairs and grills. It's also fantastic to hear the river while you sleep. The staff cannot do enough for you. They are very accommodating. Also very pet freindly. Both our dog and our parrot were welcomed . We will be back!

The room value is great, 75 for 2 doubles with the river running right out your back window, the property itself is very well maintained, with chairs and tables on the river, the room we had, was big and clean, but very dated, very worn out rug, cutains but like i said, clean, we had a mini fridge and microwave...

Reasonably priced at $110 per night. Located right on the stream which was beautiful. Rooms have a slight odor and are slightly outdated as other reviewers have pointed out ...... but they do have microwaves and refrigerators as well as flat screen TVs. Good shower pressure and heat for colder nights. Mattress needed to be upgraded and I wish they... More

Once again stayed here and couldn't have been happier. They have been continually updating and fixing up. Clean, roomy, very comfortable - new mattresses are awesome. Staff is so friendly and accommodating - so many times he said "Whatever you need". Not just dog friendly, but very welcoming. I think they like my dog more than me!! I've stayed here... More

I found this place during a New England road trip. If you enjoy nature, you'll love staying here. The view out the back & bathroom windows is of the river about 25 feet away,and with a nice cool breeze from the cross ventilating windows, you can drift off to sleep listening to it cascading over the rocks. The bed was... More

Nothing nice to say. Stayed in one of the cabins which still have the 70's décor right down to the bedspread, you have to walk down steep stairs to get to the river in the back, not very safe, the picnic tables were spread along the river bank and they looked like they seen better days. The photos are very... More

By far this has been the best place I have stayed at in New Hampshire. The rooms are cozy, and the water behind the facility was delightful. Highly reccomend this place to everyone and anyone. Very pleased! :)

We stayed here because of the price $50 a night while we were visiting the area to see the Ice Castles, about a 5 minute drive. Clean room, friendly owner, very quiet during our stay- midweek. Our room was a bit run down but we were not expecting much for the price. Did not have a list of cable channels... More
