“Friendly, comfortable and family run accommodation”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for the nights of 1st and 2nd October. Leo who booked us in was friendly and helpful. Our upstairs queen room didn’t come with a coffee maker, so we asked for one which was sent up to our room straight away, for no extra charge. Our private balcony had a view of Loon Mountain which was lovely, though there was a fairly busy road immediately outside the motel which made sitting on it rather noisy. There was also a lovely view from the walkway at the back of the motel. The noise from the road quietened down at night and the queen bed was very comfortable. The room was very clean and well furnished and came with a very quiet fridge. I particularly liked the bedspread – a nice feminine touch!!

Breakfast at “Brittany’s” (which is attached to the motel) was good - both food and service, which is more than can be said when we ate there in the evening. The food was OK, but the service was poor.

We’d arrived via the Kancamagus Highway so we used the day in between our 2 night stay at Kancamagus Lodge to drive to and through Franconia Notch State Park, taking in “The Flume”, and various viewpoints, en route. Take the old road rather than the I-93 for as far as possible. We continued to the village of Franconia and visited the home of Robert Frost, where we received a warm welcome from the lady in attendance there, despite arriving at 4-50pm when the place closed at 5pm. Both “The Flume” and Frost’s house are well worth a visit.

Kancamagus Lodge itself is good value for money, providing comfortable and friendly lodgings, and ideally positioned for the Kancamagus Scenic Highway, and Franconia Notch State Park.

Thank you for the impressive review! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. As you stated, Nicole and I will try to accomodate any need a guest may have. If you have a question or concern, we are here 24 hours and live right here on the property, and we can solve any problem as long as we know that one exists! Nicole will be very happy that you noticed and liked her new bedspreads! Our central location to all the attractions makes it very easy to visit all the splendor the White Mountain region has to offer! We look forward to hosting you again next time you visit the U.S !

Had a great time here. took my dad up for his birthday and they were awesome as always. Killer breakfast at Brittany's and a nice sports bar so there is no need to venture away for decent eats. Will Absolutely be back.

Thanks for the review! I am glad you enjoyed your Dads' birthday weekend. Our two restaurants, Brittany's and Cj's Penalty Box are a great convenience for our guests and are a very popular place to eat for locals alike. I hope we get the chance to host your Dads birthday weekends for many more years to come! Thanks again for the review.

Since this lodge is right by the main road, it is expected to have noise but convenient to go in and out. It is a motel and of motel standard, so cannot expect much. The owner/manager and his wife are very helpful & friendly. There is an indoor pool next building, table tennis, & restaurant.
This place offers free wifi.

Thank you for taking the time to express your opinion. We are a "motel" in the sense that you can pull up to your room and unload your luggage directly into your room. We are a lodging property located on the side of one of the most popular and scenic byways in NH., the Kancamagus Highway. My wife and I are very proud of our Lodge because we are able to offer "RESORT" amenities at "MOTEL" prices! We have two of the most popular restaurants in Lincoln, located on our property, we have a beautiful indoor pool, we have steam bath saunas in our West Lodge rooms. We offer many activities for families such as our game room,ping pong, basketball court,swing set play area, playstation gaming consoles in our family rooms and two fire pits. I think we offer much more than a standard "motel", and I look forward to hosting you again at our Lodge in the future!

Excellent, efficient and very pleasant manager; fast efficient check in procedure; comfortable large clean room; very good breakfast restaurant next door. The bar next door has a rather nice swimming pool
While this place is right by the main road through Lincoln, it IS a motel, really so not a big negative

Thank you for the review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and had an opportunity to eat at our restaurant for breakfast, and take a dip in our beautiful pool. It makes me happy that you noticed that we strive to have a fast efficient check in, we know you would rather spend time enjoying our amenities and our beautiful location rather than waiting in line at check-in. The Lodge has been extremely busy and we are always striving to improve our guest experience from check-in to check-out and we appreciate all the feedback that we receive that enables us to improve our property. My goal is to eventually have a completely electronic "check- in" to further expedite the process. We look forward to seeing you again.

We liked the upper level with the balcony very much over looking loon mountain and I hear many people that prefer the west side. Leo (owner/manager) really pays attention to detail. The bar and resturant were very good Lou really pays attention to quality and detail.(you can really see a female influence) sorry Lou
Had a Great three day stay! GREAT POOL area! GREAT VALUE! GREAT PEOPLE! GREAT STAY!

Thank you for the "great" review! I am so happy you enjoyed the view from your balcony room. The private balconies are a nice place to relax after a day enjoying the White Mountain region. Our restaurant, Brittany's has been recently renovated and the owners' (Louie) wife, Kristen, was an integral part in choosing the design and color. The restaurant looks great and I am glad you noticed. As you said it is a "great" place to stay with "great" staff and "great" guests like you who take the time to post such "great" reviews!
