I stayed at the Top Notch Inn on a Saturday night with three friends after a long day of hiking up and back down Mt. Washington. After checking in one of my friends and I proceeded to the room to drop our bags off and clean up. The room was clean, had a big king bed and a set of bunk beds as advertised. The room had a fridge, coffee maker, coffee and a very clean and refreshing bathroom. The shower after the hike made my friend feel very refreshed and relaxed after the long hot, hard day on the mt. We were all very pleased with the accommodations and just sorry we were too late for the hot tub in the evening. The hours of for the hot tub are. 2 pm to 10pm and we would have liked to try it out even in the early morning before our departure. If we had not arrived so late from our hike and dinner afterward we would have gone into the hot tub. The staff was very helpful checking us in and suggesting a place for dinner. They were very patient with fellow hikers who checked in after us as well. The only thing we would have liked would have been to try the hot tub at 7 or 8am in the morning. The accommodations were very satisfying, the price was excellent and I would gladly come back with family or friends and make sure to try the tub and swimming pool. Thank you.

Everything was great. We will certainly look you up, if staying in your area, in the future. The room and bathroom were the cleanest ever! We also enjoyed the ‘hot’ tub. The discounts offered, at nearby restaurants, is a real nice touch, and helpful. A comfy bed, spotless room, sparkle clean bathroom, whisper quite a/c unit, and so on. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Near everything, but far enough away. We didn’t even share our bench with spiders or such. You keep the exterior tidy and clean as well. Thank you for a wonderful experience, and at a very reasonable rate! We will return. We will recommend you to all of our friends and family.
Thank you so much,

I stayed on a Friday night in June before going to Mt. Washington and it was a great stay. I really liked the price for what I got. I stayed in the deluxe room with the king size bed. The room was better than the picture shows. The bathroom was updated with new fixtures and the room was very clean. I am going to stay here again when heading back up to the Whites.

My only gripe is I wish they had given another bar of soap in the bathroom.

We stayed 2 nights to explore the Mt. Washington valley by biking & hiking. The staff was friendly and helpful, pointing out trailheads and biking routes to us. The room was very, very clean, with a nice microwave & fridge, both clean. The room had a king bed (comfortable) and the most comfortable side chair (& ottoman) we have ever had in any room we had stayed. The perfect place to read or relax after a day outdoors. Nice lawn area with chairs & table so you aren't stuck in the room.

We booked Top Notch Inn for a weekend hiking getaway. By the time we reached the hotel, we were barely able to think after conquering Mt. Washington, and the front desk step were so kind and helpful; giving dinner and evening entertainment suggestions. The room was comfortable and clean. Hot shower, a nice mini-fridge to save leftovers, and large bed. The town of Gorham is really nice too; a little less crowded than North Conway. We will definitely be back.

Had a great experience staying at the Pinkham House with our hiking group. (June 5) The Pinkham House 'apartment' is very clean, spacious, and suited for a family or group like ours. The Staff is fantastic. Will definitely stay again when we are in the area to hike or if in the area with family.
