Best restaurant we have eaten at and by far the lovliest Christmas decorations you'll find.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of eating at the 1785 for about 20 years. The first time was because it looked nice. But then we were hooked. It wasn't until maybe 5 years ago that we started staying at the Inn and have never been disappointed. The staff is simply outstanding and the Innkeepers are the nicest people we have met. Visiting the 1785 is like going home again and seeing all the familiar faces and having some of the best food that you can ask for. Chefs Peter and Mike are the best and Becky makes the best breakfasts and desserts. Alan is our favorite server but they are all very nice. We also enjoy sitting at the bar after dinner and chatting with Billy.

Relaxing Vacation, Excellent Food

5 on December 02, 2012

A relaxing and peaceful place to stay. The restaurant food and staff were excellent. The inn hosts a few common rooms that are very comfortable to hang out it. The location is excellent, close to town and yet the best views there are to offer. We enjoy going in the winter/spring when we can cross country ski right out the door.

Great location in the Mount Washington Valley

The 1785 Inn is one of our favorite places to stay in the Mount Washington Valley of New Hampshire. Charlie, Becky, and the entire staff are very welcoming. The rooms are comfortable and reflective of an upscale country inn. The bar and dining room are outstanding - hands down the best in the valley. If you're looking for a place to stay that's close to everything the Mount Washington Valley has to offer, plus great food and people, this is the place.

Wonderfully charming

The Inn certainly has 1785 character. No TV's here! But spectacular views and location. I was able to nordic ski from the dooryard. The bartender Billy is fabulous and the food is top notch gourmet. No disappointments here.

Winter wonderland escape

4.4 on March 02, 2012

This historic and quaint inn was a wonderful weekend escape for my fiance and I. The inn has an on-site restaurant that serves dinner every evening, and the food was AMazing! The inn includes breakfast with your stay, and we were blown away. What I expected to be a continental style breakfast, was actually a full-service sit-down breakfast with unbelievable options from blueberry pancakes to eggs florentine. The staff was very friendly and our room was clean, warm, and cozy.

1785 Inn is fabulous

4.6 on February 29, 2012

We stayed the weekend of the chocolate festival in N Conway and our room price included, X_C ski passes for Sat and Sunday, as well as Chocolate Festival passes and breakfast. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The entire staff was courteous, helpful and very pleasant, including the owners! The meals were some of the best we've ever had, including breakfast, and the atmosphere is awesome. We will definitely go back. This whole package was one of the best values we have ever experienced and the whole weekend was well above our expectations.

February 2012, 3 day stay

The Inn is comfortable with warm hospitality and attractive surroundings. It equates all the expectations of an historic Inn with all its charm. The innkeepers and staff are attentive to your needs. The dining is very good over all with large wood burning fireplaces, beamed ceilings and beautiful views of the White Mountain range from the main dining room at breakfast time. The baked goods are quite outstanding made fresh daily by the Innkeeper. The rooms are clean and comfortable but nothing special in terms of decor. Many of the rooms are shared baths only. Skiing was quite good right outside the Inn. I think it's worth the trip and experience.
