We stayed in the Kinsman Lodge with our two young daughters (9&6) for three nights in the new family suite - 1 double room joined to a twin room via a private bathroom connecting the two rooms - perfect. Chet and Sue are wonderful, warm and friendly hosts and our daughters loved chatting with them and generally wandering around and exploring. The breakfasts are outstanding. We spent each evening relaxing on the front deck looking out for bears but sadly didn't see any.. If we visit Franconia again we will definitely stay here, it is a true gem of a place and very very easy for families with young children. Our SatNav tried to take us the wrong way down 116 away from Franconia when heading from Sugar Hill, just make sure you head towards Franconia. Also highly recommend Mojo's bagels in Franconia, a great place for take away bagels plus has hundreds of vinyl records - it is an interesting find.. A tip, if you visit The Basin, walk the extra 0.5 miles to Kinsman Falls - they are simply breathtaking and worth every step.
