My Husband and I got married here last month and I can't say enough good things about Lovett's! Where to begin? Don't let the rustic appearance from the outside fool you, it's part of it's charm! The Inn is so quaint and cute. We knew as soon as we visited that this is where we would get married (the small bar area was our favorite as well as the sitting/sun room in the back). We got a tour (and came during off season) so we got to see all the rooms in the Inn (there are 5) and all of the cottages, I believe there are 11 or 12. Each is amazing in it's own way. We chose to stay in the Inn and loved our room. It was spacious and had windows overlooking both the pond across the street and the grounds out back. I think when we return for our next visit we will try a cottage.
The food is amazing! My husband and I are both foodies and that was one of the most important things in choosing a venue (which can be hard when your feeding 100+ people). We had dinner in the dining room when we first visited. I had the beef tenderloin, my husband the duck and we started with the crab cakes. Everything was amazing! The next time we came we had a tasting with both our parents and everything was to die for. For our wedding we ended up choosing the duck and beef with a crabcake appetizer and a salad. I can't even tell you how many compliments we got (about how gorgeous the grounds and the wedding was) but mostly about the food and how it was "the best wedding food I've ever had" and "the best duck/beef I've ever tasted". We had breakfast each morning (included in the room rate). They give you a menu with about 5 or 6 choices. I had pancakes one morning and eggs benedict the other, everything was so good.
And finally what makes this place so amazing is Jim & Janet who own and run it. Honestly, they are the nicest, friendliest, and welcoming people I have ever met. The made our families feel right at home, remembering most by name. I can't reccomend this place enough. It's perfect for a romantic or family getaway. The grounds are beautiful, the Inn homey, the food delicious and there's so much to do in Franconia Notch. My Husband and I can't wait to go back!
