Pinestead Farm Lodge
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Our group of 12 stayed there last year for one night before a road race. We are staying again this year because we loved it and it's cheap! If you are looking for something fancy or modern with lots of ammeneties, this is not the place, but it's very cozy. The beds (love the quilts!) were comfortable and the apartments were clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our dinner. I almost did not want to write a review to keep it from getting too popular! I would definitely recommend staying here.

This farm is lovely and rustic. The rooms are old fashioned and they all have access to a kitchenette. I went here with my husband on off season and I can't wait to go back during ski season and in the summer, too.

Although, I had a nice time here with my husband, I couldn't help thinking it would be more fun with a group of people or with a family. It's just a kind of down to earth place (it is a working farm afterall) where you would feel good bringing children or kicking back with a group of friends after hiking. It's something different than your usual condo type place or hotel, more authentic.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for the upstairs rooms.

I stayed with my wife and 3 grown daughers. We had a good price and had 3 rooms with a kitchen area and a bathroom. It is a very laid back operation. The host are nice folks. No credit cards accepted. Beds were really comfy and the homemade quilts were a nice touch. We went hiking on the Greenleaf Trail up to the AMC hut just below Lafayette Peak. This isn't the trail for the weak. Get started early, especially if you want to get up to Lafayette. Other than the worn carpet in the kitchen area, I really don't have any complaints. I have stayed before and enjoyed it with a bunch of guy friends while hiking. Nice location, but a little drive to any place to eat. The Franconia Inn has excellent meals and is the closest right down the street, but is a bit pricey. Also you can horseback ride there and get glider rides. I would not hesitate to recommend the Pinestead, but keep in mind that it is a bit "rustic" so if you are used to the Ritz, this might come up a might short for your taste.

Bob and Kathleen provide you with everything you need during a perfect stay. Their farm is a really nice place and we felt very welcomed and comfortbale there.
They provide you with a lot of info to make your stay perfect, but we never felt bothered by them.
One of the greatest things is that you are really close to a lot of points of interests and that you can create your own meal with their vegetables in the kitchen.
We are sure that we will come back at one point!!!

If you want to experience New England at it's most cozy and heartfelt, this is the place to do it! Pinestead Farm is family run, a working farm, and they even make their own maple syrup in their own sugar house! Each of the apartments is lovingly decorated. The traditional quilts are also home made - and can be bought at their store in town - and are cozy to snuggle into at night. Each bedroom in our apartment had a double and single bed - easy for the family to share rooms. The kitchen is fully equipped. We didn't cook but could have. Don't expect luxury, but everything is clean, functional and cozy. The setting is gorgeous and you can walk the grounds, visit the animals and hike. Perfect for a stay if you want to see Franconia Notch! Thanks to the wonderful family for their outstanding hospitality. We felt truly "at home"!

A farm lodge with little comfort but all the necessary things were there. Everything was clean and ready at our arrival.
One kitchen is shared for 3 rooms. We were alone at that time and the kitchen was great. It is a good place for a visit in the white mountains region. We had a great time with our 13 month child.

Very nice place, has everything what you need in a rustic setting. We spent 2 nights of our NH/Maine trip at the lodge, marvellous piece of land to stroll around between intruiging machinery. The owners were very nice people, very helpful in suggesting us some nice walks we managed to do in the (unfortunately) short period of time we were there.
Would definatley recommend this place to people visiting the area!
