We chose Gorham as an ideal stopping off point en route from Burlington, Vermont to Bar Harbor, Maine. The hotel is a classic motel style with rooms spread around the car park. We'd booked the Mt Maddison room online for $96.
Reception was very efficient and our room ideal for a 1 night stay. The bed sagged a bit in the middle but other than that everything was fine.
The town is good for a pleasant stroll with a few souvenier shops and restaurants.
The hotel has a small pool and hot tub which are good for an hour or so of relaxing, although it is right next to the main road.
We went to Crabby Jacks for our evening meal, ideal for an informal meal.
In the evening we went for a drive along route 16 hoping to spot some moose unfortunatley we didn't see any but it was a nice scenic drive.
We got up early next day (very early as the previous occupants had left the alarm set to 6.30 am) and went to Glen Ellis falls and then drove to the top of Mount Washington which was well worth the detour.
Gorham is a great stopping off place and the Top Notch is suitable for a short stay.
