“LET'S GET AWAY FROM IT ALL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

My wife and I come from Ontario, where beautiful, large, century resort hotels haven't existed for 60 years. We spent 6 wonderful, relaxing days at The Eagle Mountain House. The nostalgia factor alone would have been enough, but there was much more. The staff was the best we have encountered in 50 years of travelling. They were consistently cheerful, and very helpful, when we asked for it. It seemed that they shared our affection for the hotel. The food was very good, people were quiet at night, and the view from the hotel resembles any number of famous American landscapes. We intend to return, with our children and grandchildren. There are many interesting attractions in the area, and northern New Hampshire is an area where children appear to be treated with warmth and respect.

it's easy to imagine that you have been transported a hundred years back in time while staying here. a truly nice place for a calm & soothing experience. my favorite detail would have to be the rocking chairs on the veranda...this is a great spot to take your fleece throw, glass of wine & a good book for a little winding down. another nice feature is being able to open the windows to let the clean new england air fill your room. just lovely! also, i must say that the housekeeping staff were so nice & made our room "like new" each day! the price is right as well...the eagle mountain house is an excellent value!

Room Tip: for a small fee, you can request a mini-fridge in your room

This is a difficult review for me as a I have mixed emotions. Firstly the Staff are first class. We had a problem with our allocated room on arrival (room 120). It was not to a standard that I would have expected. Daisy, the reception manager moved us immediately to room 104, much better. BUT, generally interior fabric of the hotel is not good. I understand from the management, who have recently taken over the running of the hotel, that the property is undergoing refurbishment in the near future. The exterior of this lovely historic hotel is in good repair and similar work to the interior and bedrooms needs to be undertaken without delay. The hotel is in a fantastic location in the White Mountains. The Hotel is well known for its food. The area is breathtaking and awe inspiring and its a must for all visitors to drive the road between Conway and Lincoln. Just trust me and do it. If you are totally mad you can even drive to the peak of Mt Washington!!!! Go to the outlet shops at North Conway, just down the road.

I wish this lovely old Hotel all the best for the future and will cerainly return one day.

The location is very good, nesteld in the mountains in a non commercial area. The room we had, 126, was facing the kitchen, so the room was kind of smelly whenever they were cooking... The hotel is nice but some renovation is very well needed. Also dusting doesn't seem to be one of their force... The room we had was spacious and bathroom also. Breakfast is 12$ and very average... We ate there one morning but went some place else the next one.

Dear Lady_Betsie
Not all rooms face the mountains but when you come back to the eagle Mountain House please ask for a mountain view room. I was sorry to hear you found our breakfast "average" we receive so many compliments about our breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, omelets made to order, crispy bacon, sausage, cereals, I could go on. We are always open for suggestions from our guest and learn from all constructive critisim so thank you. Hope you visit soon.

Spent Sunday night here after a nice hike. EMH is a classic older hotel. The place was built in the late 1800s. Expect that! Not plush but the location and service are great. We had a "non view room" that still had a nice view. A tight little shower that worked beautifully. But the veranda is THE THING. Drinks before dinner, watching the golfers wander in off the small nine hole course. The really wonderful thing is the mountain view beyond. We then went down the porch to a private table, with even a better view. A truly wonder dinner with a nice bottle of wine, wiht a wonderful waitstaff. A final final then off to a nice cool sleep.

Room Tip: The Mountain views are the best but almost every room looks at a mountain.

Our visit was only 3 nights. The decor of the inn was lovely; the breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect for us as we explored the beautiful mountain scenery. We also enjoyed a delicious dessert and coffee, out on the front porch. The only thing I would change is the pillow.. it was a bit too hard. Will definately go back when we have a chance. We'll bring our golf clubs, next time.

Room Tip: Stayed in third floor corner room in the back. It was a lovely room with couch and small fridge. We...

Dear Mary S,
Thank you for the great review we also look forward to your return! You are right the breakfast is delicious, the decor is charming and our rooms are clean and spacious. The view can not be beat as we sit atop of Jackson Village with breathtaking mountain views. We have comfortable rocking chairs that line the Veranda for our guest to relax and enjoy the fresh mountain air!
