As usual, we were greeted at the door by their Bernese Mountain dog, who demanded pets, as a rite of passage. Truly a great way to begin destressing! We've been there many times, so went directly to our room with our bags and unpacked. It was only a half hour later that we formally checked in!! The innkeepers, Ed and Les, have a way of being available when needed, but otherwise manage to give you privacy. The rooms are fantastic, all with fireplaces, great views of the mountains, wonderfully decorated....I suspect that's Les's attention. The gardens are literally award winning, matched only by large university horticulture schools. You'll also note in the warmer months dozens of hummingbirds flocking to the feeders. Mark, who often serves breakfast is a lifelong local resident who was, I believe, a forest ranger in the area. He knows every back trail, road and scenic overlook, and is a resource not to be overlooked. OH... The starting point for the Davis hiking trail to the summit of Mount Washington is across the street from the inn. Also, there are private swimming holes on the property as well as lengthy hiking trails onsite. This Inn is an annual stop for us (and has been for many years).....or couldn't you tell!!

We have visited the Notchland Inn on two occasions; once in the February snows and the second in the greener time of July. This is a wonderful place to sit back and relax, have dinner, and go out and play tourist. The surroundings are filled with awesome sights in and around the Mt. Washington Valley. Hart's Landing is a place that can be missed in the blink of an eye. We have thoroughly enjoyed each of our visits to the inn look forward to the next.

Notchland inn was a perfect weekend get away for my boyfriend and I last summer. We live and work in the city and really needed a break from the city life which gets old fast during the summer. Up at the notchland inn we found just that. We had a quiet clean and comfortable spacious room and the breakfast was delicious!! We then hiked to the top of Mt Crawford which was amazing. 360 degree spectacular views from the top! It was a weekend in July and the trail was not croudes at all! Les and Ed were wonderful and offered great recommendations about restaurants in the area as well as the best spots for hiking in the area. We had a great weekend and would recommend it to anyone looking for a very low key and simplistic weekend get away in the mountains.

The Inn is perched on a hill just off of Rte 302 with views of the mountains. It's a solid granite building, built in the 1800s, with a rich history. Our room was on the second floor, overlooking the road -- we weren't bothered by any road noise, but we are both deep sleepers and it was the off-season so traffic was very light. The house is perfectly appointed; the innkeepers seem to have thought of everything. The bed was comfortable and provided a great night's sleep. We loved having a fireplace in the room and enjoyed being able to play cards by the fire to relax after a day of hiking. Breakfast was awesome -- super tasty and you have made-to-order options ranging from eggs to oatmeal to pancakes. We managed to spend a little bit of time on the grounds, where you can find a small cemetery and a number of hikes. We took some time to enjoy a glass of wine while the sun set, whiling away the hour on the front lawn. Dinner was a great treat and very intimate. We came to Notchland to get away for a quiet, restorative weekend and that's exactly what we got. I felt that the innkeepers really care about their guests and truly want you to have a great and happily memorable experience. We can't wait to return for another restful, relaxing, restorative weekend.

Notchland Inn was great as usual. Incredible atmosphere. Ed, Les, Mark and staff were their typical friendly and attentive selves. We enjoyed wood fires every evening in our cottage fireplace. Crawford and Felonie visited us a few times and were always near by. The breakfasts were great, the hand delivered weather report a nice touch. Mark is always a wealth of local information and very helpful with planning the day. We have stayed at many B&B and Notchland is #1.

Notchland was terrific. The buildings and grounds are beautiful and the staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable about everything local. Very convenient to several ski resorts (Bretton Woods, Attitash, Wildcat, etc). Also key is that their cottages are dog friendly, so we were able to bring our lab along.

We had a fantastic stay and especially enjoyed the working fireplace in our room. Ed & Les were excellent hosts! We got some great suggestions for a local hike. Dinner was excellent and a fantastic value. We can't wait to visit again. Regards, Chris
