We spent a four day weekend at the Carter Notch Inn in late June; it was the second time in 5 years we were able to get away for a few days from our kids and careers. A weekend like that is so rare that the inn needed to be perfect. It was. Everything about our visit was a success. The Inn is exactly as advertised on their website. The rooms are even more charming than the photographs, and the food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the large porch, the hot tub and the adirondack chairs in the yard, all in a gorgeous NH mountain setting. The entire Inn is immaculate - it may be the cleanest inn or hotel we've ever seen - and full of extra touches (cookies and tea in the afternoon, wide selection of DVDs, complimentary beer and wine in the fridge, and binders overflowing with area attractions and menus). Last but not least, Dick and Sally are perfect hosts. They seem to love their guests (many are repeaters) but also let them be; if you want suggestions for activities, restaurants, hikes, etc., they have a wealth of information. If you tend to figure things out for yourself, they let you be. We got to looking forward to hitting the front porch of the inn late in the day for a beer or glass of wine, because often Dick and Sally will be there too and their company is so enjoyable. We followed their restaurant recommendations every night and were extremely pleased. Dudley, the resident sheep dog, was a fantastic inn keeper in his own right. Using the inn as our base, we hiked Mt. Jackson one day, explored Franconia Notch another and swam at the falls/ledges in Jackson itself. My only regret is not having time to play the 9 hole country golf course across the street from the inn. We have stayed at a lot of inns and hotels over the years and this one is really special - it is the kind of inn that makes you want to stop trying new inns. We will return as soon as we can.
