We're always sorry when someone is disappointed with their experience here. This reviewer's summary of the Notch Train views is not typical, though we're glad he found the narration on the train to be interesting. The history of building a railroad route through Crawford Notch...More

Not the most 'scenic' of rail rides. The trees close in around the track which limits the vistas. We took the dining package on the Notch line at a supplement of about$55/head a packed lunch would have been just as good. Lovely staff, good commentary....More
