Extremely friendly host and nicely restored/maintained historic inn. The inn is on a busy road, not a quaint neighborhood or even in town, so be prepared for headlights and pretty loud road noise if you have a room at the front of the inn. Odd combination of scones and wine when we arrived in the late afternoon/early evening, though cans of Budweiser were available in a mini-fridge. Cheese and crackers might have been a better match. I wouldn't mention it if it weren't overpowering, but if you love vanilla scented Glade plug-ins everywhere, this could be your place.
This is the kind of inn you will remember for a lifetime, not just for its physical comfort and sense of history but for the warm-hearted, gregarious nature of its host, his excellent skill as a breakfast cook, his helpful suggestions for local adventures, his interest in the wellbeing of his guests -- and his sheer humanity. We were as much refreshed by our conversations with him as by any amount of hiking in the nearby White Mountains. This innkeeper is one of a kind -- and so is the inn!
We stayed at the Federal House Inn while managing a music festival over Veterans Day weekend. From the moment we checked in, Kevin made us feel welcome with engaging conversation and a variety of refreshments. It felt like we were staying with a good friend. The best-in-class hospitality in the White Mountains!
We had a great time with excellent food, rooms and hospitality. The setting in the White mountains at it's peak foliage was magnificent. We were made to feel like honored guests. We highly recommend that you stay at the the Federal House Inn.
We stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Kevin was the best host and welcomed us and brought our luggage upstairs and offered many amenities. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was so helpful with suggestions for our exploring around the area. Kevin is a delight! The rooms were clean and beds comfortable and the Inn location was easy to find and easy access to interesting places to visit.
