For a longer vacation throughout New England we deliberately chose Trip Advisor recommended accommodations for value. In hindsight, we wouldn't have stayed at Carlson's-- being nearly an hour from Mt. Washington -- our destination. Be careful as Carlson's has a strict no cancellations policy. Driving up 302, it doesn't look like Twin Mountain has the most posh accommodations but Carlson's... More

Our first night we were delayed and arrived quite late, but Carol was very gracious about it and still took the time to orient us to the area and make recommendations. The rooms were clean, and our stay was very pleasant. The location is excellent for Cog Railway and all the state parks & attractions in the area.

We were passing through for a night on our way from Montreal to Boston and had thought we'd easily find a place to stay--not so! Most places were booked solid, to our surprise. On a tip from a nearby hotelier, we tried Carlson's and were glad we did. Too bad we didn't have more time to explore & enjoy our... More

This was our 6th visit to Carlson's Lodge from the UK. It is our favourite place to stay in New Hampshire. Our room (108) was spotless and spacious and has a fabulous view of the mountains. The location is a perfect base for exploring the White Mountains in particular the Franconia and Crawford Notch areas. A continental breakfast is included... More

WE, as well as members of our family most always stay at Carlson's (except when we occasionally splurge on the Mount Washington Resort---also Great), because of what we call the Four "C's"-- Clean, Convenient, Comfortable and Compatible with our requirements, wishes and price considerations( Whoops, another C). The staff, consisting mostly of Carlson family members, are as nice a group... More

We stayed in a spotless well designed room with a fully-stocked kitchenette. The rates are very reasonable for what they provide. Continental breakfast is included. The staff are outdoorsy themselves and can offer advice for any activity, winter and summer. I also love that they have a dog and a cat who greet guests.

This Lodge is a handy place to stay when hiking or doing any outdoor activities in the Twin Mountain/Bretton Woods area. The rooms are very clean and affordable. The owner is very welcoming and very happy to make recommendations about what to do and where to eat. The hotel is located only a 1/2 mile west of the four corners... More

We spent two pleasant nights at the lodge, which was clean, neat and comfortable and close to all of the people, places and things we wanted to see while in the White Mountains. The management and staff are very friendly and efficient and the rooms are perfect for our requirements and well within our price range. A very nice place... More

We have been staying at carlson's lodge for over 40 years! We started staying at carlson's before we had children. We went with a large group of friends, some of us skied and some of the others went snowmobiling. We have memories that will last a lifetime. The whole Carlson family is so special to us. We brought our children... More

We enjoyed our stay at Carlsons. It was comfortable and quiet. The owner put us at the end of the hall where it was quiet. Breakfast was minimal but ok. The owner recommended a great place for dinner, The Northern Embers.
