A great family-friendly stay on the eastern side of the White Mountains! (Dog-friendly, too, for those who travel with canine friends.) Could be described as either a small country inn or a large B&B.
We've stayed here twice with our young children in a suite that gives the 5 of us plenty of space to not feel completely on top of each other. Rates are very reasonable for the area. Location is perfect (we were looking for something very close to Storyland and White Mountains National Forest). I like that it's off the main drag in Conway, away from the traffic. We've only been in summer, but it's also a very easy drive to many of the ski areas (Cranmore Mountain, Attitash/Bear Peak, Bretton Woods, etc.). Just under an hour to Santa's Village, and abut an hour to the other side of the pass to visit Franconia Notch/Cannon Mountain.
The included breakfast is simple, but hearty and exceptionally good. Even when the kitchen is slammed with a full house ordering all at once! There are always several families with young children, and the kids were certainly welcomed with open arms. The grounds are beautiful for strolling. And the pool and hot tub are a welcome respite after a day of hiking in the National Forest.
We haven't had much interaction with the owners/staff, but the few times we did they were all friendly and very helpful with great suggestions for food/activities and a great willingness to do whatever they could for us.
Cosmetically, the Lodge could use some updating (peeling wallpaper, old carpet, outdated decor, etc.), though many would say that adds to the rustic, home-y charm. There certainly were no functional issues and (aside from a very hard mattress in the suite's main bedroom) everything was quite comfortable. And the owners have said that the mattress in the room we were in is next on the list to be replaced. Yay!
Free wifi was nice and zippy, which is an added bonus!
