I found Lovetts Inn while doing a search for lodging with a suite near the Flume Gorge. We were running late for check-in. I called the Inn and Michelle advised she would leave the key on the front desk and the room unlocked. The Inn was easy to find. We loved the night sounds surrounding the inn. We stayed in the Nicholas Powers Suite which is upstairs in the main house. It consists of 2 large rooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other room has a queen size futon. There is a spa tub and a separate shower in the bathroom. The room has a refrigerator. There is no TV. My husband and I were travelling with our 2 adult daughters and the rooms were spacious enough we had plenty of space for our 3 large duffles. An added plus is the availability of a bathroom downstairs should someone need an immediate bathroom when the room bathroom is occupied. We particularly enjoyed the abundance of places to relax. One day I sat by the pool, while the others in my family found places in the home, and outside, to chill. There is a sun room, family room, dining area, deck, and a pool. One night we watched a DVD in the family room. Michelle's breakfasts are top notch. On Sunday she offers a buffet. Everything was warm and tasty. The homemade apple handpies are to die for as is the French Toast. We found the other guests staying at the Inn to be very friendly. It is a fifteen minute drive into nearby towns for dinner. The Flume Gorge is a fifteen to twenty minute drive. There are nearby hiking trails, but rain and an abundance of people prevented us from hiking. If you are looking to stay at an unpretentious inn that has comfortable beds, fantastic food, and is relaxing, this is the place for you.

Love the rustic feel of this B&B. The owner Michelle is an AMAZING host, breakfast was delicious (best bacon ever!). Quiet and low key, lots of common sitting areas to lounge/ admire the view of Cannon Mountain. We stayed in a cottage and the bed was so cosy and comfy. Can't wait to go back again.

Beautiful Inn with fantastic views from the cottages. Michelle met us and gave us tips for evening meals. Breakfast was amazing with plenty of freshly cooked options. Cottage was homely and comfortable.

I booked in February 2022 for a too. For this weekend (May 2022) to attend a wedding. I called when I was on my way to let the Inn know when I would be arriving only to find out it was Closed!! Imagine my surprise. I had to find new accommodations on a holiday weekend! Then the Inn had the audacity to charge me for one nights stay! Are you kidding me? Absolutely unacceptable! I will be calling New Hampshire’s Attorney General’s office on Tuesday. Outrageous!!!

Michelle is the consummate host; friendly, knowledgeable and a rare cook. Breakfast features her fabulous baking and she’ll cook whatever you can dream up. The pool and common areas were immaculate. Our cottage was unfussy but very comfortable. The inn abuts hiking/ski trails and a meadow with millions of zinging fireflies. If you love this area and prefer a room to a campsite (Franstead!), this is where you go.

We stayed at Lovetts Inn for a quick weekend away in the white mountains. The new owners are great and are extremely welcoming. We stayed in one of the cottages - #11, which had a queen bed (firm mattress) and a small sitting area with a TV. The room had a microwave, refrigerator and a coffee maker as well. The bathroom looked like it had been recently upgraded. We had dinner at the Inn and also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. Overall we were very pleasantly surprised with our visit. They were also dog friendly which was great because we didn’t have to get a pet sitter to get out of town!

Even though we were late arriving - near their closing time of 9:00 - they provided a warm welcome and excellent service. We both had the roast beef special and it was quite good (a baked potato would have been good). Reasonably priced wine and beer. I gather under new management so give it a try.

My friend and I were heading to Franconia for a long weekend of outdoor activities. My wife suggested we check out Lovett's Inn. We took her advice and I am so glad we did. We rented 2 of the cottages and were pleasantly surprised when we entered the rooms. They were very comfortable and extremely clean. We spent three days and two nights, the food and service were excellent and the staff and owners were amaizing. I make several weekend trip a year to the area and will be looking to stay there from now on. Tim

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.
