Old is new again! Heard some reports of the fresh menu and pub offerings that the new own of Lovetts have brought to the table in Franconia... and it is fabulous. All the feel of the ole school Inn, amazing taste with attentive staff, and bread baked fresh daily. Looking forward to making a return.

This was our first time using a BNB. We usually stick to the "Chain" hotels. Was very pleasantly surprised. We were in town as "Leafer Peepers" and chose Lovett's due to past reviews. Lovett's is a gem. The staff was excellent and the accommodations were out of the past, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It has been beautifully restored. Marilyn and Martin her husband, the owners, have transformed the place. Friday morning during breakfast, Marilyn gave us the history of Lovett's. Our breakfast was the best we had during our trip. Plenty of options and was scratch made perfectly. Our room was in a small cottage. It was tastefully decorated, warm with a fireplace, quiet, and very comfortable. Should you need wifi, it was very strong no matter where we were. The grounds are very nice with a good sized pool. They also have a small bar that was well stocked. Everyone that worked there was very helpful and friendly. They have changed our idea of BNB's.

The current owners purchased the Inn this past year and they have done a ton of work to this 200+ year old inn. The rooms and charming with comfortable, period furniture and spacious. We stayed in the Lafayette room which in on the second floor of the main house. There are some quirks with the room like the water flow in the shower but nothing that you should not expect in such an old property. The restaurant is open to the public for dinner daily and breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. Breakfast is included with your stay and is very well done. the first morning of our stay we where the only couple at breakfast so we had totally customized breakfast. My wife and I stayed here to do some fall leave peeping and this is a great location for such an activity. The inn is a very short drive to the Flume, a section of Franconia Notch State Park. Mt Washington is a comfortable drive distance.

we've been there for dinner and it was excellent. The staff was very friendly, the food was tasting and there was a singer/songwriter which played in the bar area next to the dining room. reccomend this.

My boyfriend and I recently booked a room at the Lovetts Inn for New Years Eve. We booked this trip based upon the average review of this establishment which showed a 4-4.5 stars. We booked a 'delux room' with a king sized bed and jacuzzi for $220. Upon entering our 'delux suite', we noticed how horrible the room smelt. I have allergies and the entire room STUNK of mold. We couldn't even stand being inside for more than 15 minutes.......the bed was also not a king sized bed like we PAID for. We decided to be nice and not to ruin the owners night because it was New Years Eve and he went to dinner with his wife. We left and figured we would let him know about our dissatisfaction the next day in a polite manner. We sent an email following up about how we never stayed in our room due to my allergic reaction (the suite smelled like mold and must, had a headache right after leaving) and how run down the room was. The owner refused a refund. If I could give this place 0 stars I would and the most they should charge is $50. They should really put some money into the rooms if they are going to charge the amount they are. We are really disappointed with the lack of concern and hospitality. Will not be returning.
