Nice rooms, but there isn't breakfast

2.8 on March 21, 2017

First the pros. The rooms are big, comfortable, clean, warm, and cozy. In the hallway on the side of the building where we stayed, they had a wood stove which was a nice amenity to return to at the end of the day. Our hosts were polite, friendly, and sought to be as accommodating as they could be. Discount lift tickets to Bretton Woods was a plus too. The location being really close to things was also very nice. It was a cozy place, felt like my grandmother's lake cabin. The cons. Communication could be improved in some areas. For example, I wasn't told that our suite was on the second floor and I plain forgot to ask, and ultimately this was not an option for us for disability access reasons, so it took a few phone calls to work out a solution on the first floor. Maybe it's my fault for not asking, but usually I've been told what floor a room is on. The other thing was daily housekeeping - normally we do not like daily housekeeping, and we weren't told that a cleaning person would be in our room on the first day while we were out. If we knew this we would have taken our valuables with us. Also I'm allergic to cats, and there's a cat who lives in the lobby so just fyi. Very friendly kitty but I have a rash on my hand now. But the deal breaker for me is the lack of breakfast. There is coffee, juice, and cold cereal served from 8am to 10am, and if you are leaving early to go skiing, hiking, or any other outdoor activity where you'll want an earlier start, you can't even access it - not to mention that it's not much. I know what a continental breakfast is, but why not Danishes? regular sized muffins? bagels? Fruit? Yogurt? It's best to just bring your own food, or get up even earlier and eat at one of the diners in town. We ended up just eating at the cafeteria in the base lodge at the ski area, which is disappointing considering what we paid for a place advertising an included breakfast.


Nice Stay

3.6 on March 02, 2017

We were almost alone in the hotel. It was the weekend before mid-winter break. The stay was very nice. Not too many restaurants were open during the early week. We had planned on skiing at Bretton Woods. The owner was really nice and personable, as was her helpers!


Father and daughters ski time

4.6 on February 20, 2017

Very comfortable and quaint. Got discounted tickets to BW and saved $60 on 3 tickets, no need to wait in ticket line - just went to the chairlift. We got a two room suite that had plenty of channels on the TV for the girls. Lots of neat sitting areas. My favorite part was drinking my coffee while looking out the window at Twin Mountain.


Nice experience!

3.4 on February 19, 2017

We staying in the lodge during a ski trip. The area had very little dining options on a Tuesday. The lodge had a roaring fire, game room, and was very quiet and comfortable. Owner very nice and sociable!


Courteous staff, decent rooms and a very serene ambience

4.2 on November 04, 2016

We were a family of two with 4 kids. As we were traveling from a long distance, we were really late but the staff kindly helped us out. Breakfast was in a very homely setup and style. Kids enjoyed it. All the places you would want to visit are pretty close from here and that helped us a lot considering that we had 2 infants. On the whole, it was a very pleasant experience.


A wonderful suprise in the White Mountains

The owners could not have been more helpful and kind. They made an excellent dinner recommendation and even called to insure they would be able to accommodate us. The beautiful gardens were an added bonus and we got the names of some of the flowers to add to our own gardens!


A great, quiet, pretty lodge.

A very friendly experience. Everyone was extremely hospitable in a family-run type environment. Nice and quiet, too. I would definitely recommend it.


Great stay at Carlson's Lodge

3.8 on August 31, 2016

This was our first experience at Carlson's. Pulling up my wife exclaimed "It's pretty!". The style is out of the 1960's, but all is clean and the owners friendly. It isn't a chair operation. Don't expect vending or an ice machine. The room had an air conditioner that we used the first afternoon- it worked perfectly- then wonders of wonders at night we opened the windows and enjoyed the crisp New Hampshire air! We had early starts both morning so we missed the breakfast offerings. The staff also suggested restaurants for dining options.


Great place

5 on August 26, 2016

Our two night stay at Carlson's was wonderful. The setting is just beautiful and from our room we had a full view of Twin Mountain. The Inn itself is very homey and warm. We felt welcomed and the people were very friendly and caring. It was very clean and well kept, a great blend of the old and the new. There are so many things to do. It's close to fishing, hiking, skiing, local tourist attractions, and very good restaurants. This is truly a gem


Extremely Nice B&B

4.2 on August 15, 2016

The room and B&B were very clean and staff worked hard to make trip very enjoyable including providing suggestions on where to dine and tour.
