Franconia Inn is my go to place when I need to get away. The rustic, homey, atmosphere, along with the amazing views, pool in warm weather, hiking trails and horse back riding, not to mention that I LOVE that they have a pub on site for a drink and wonderful food, oh AND the more formal dining room for breakfast is AMAZING! I have turned so many of my family members on to Franconia Inn and every one of them love it. If you haven't stayed there yet then you have been missing out! The guest rooms are not elegant, they are though very comfortable and rustic feel, with quaint antique touches, and very clean. Enjoy!

What a little bit of heaven! WE were there in the summer so a few people were enjoying the nice pool; the screened in porch just ouytside out room was inviting with lovely wicker furniture; the food was celicious and the wait staff charming. More than that, the innkeepers could not have been more accommodating.. I would recommend the inn to anyone. It is quiet, not fancy, but immaculatgely clean and a place for a real getaway.

Great Location on Northern Side of the 'Notch'

Very nice stay. The restaurant wait staff for breakfast were excellent and breakfast was delicious with many carb choices, which I love! Front desk was efficient and helpful. The Inn is great in terms of much to do on the property if simply want to stay in or snowbound (game rm, bar, hot tub, pool, horseback riding next door literally as is the grass runway small craft airport! Tennis across the street, barbecue, fireplaces to hover over and read! All around great place. My only slight let down was the rooms are very simply and plain as is the bathroom for the price tag. No TV, and beds a bit too soft for my taste. I don't remember if there was a phone in the room but we use cell anyway. I recommend and would return but try to find a discount if possible, as again I think a bit overpriced for type of room, unless you get free breakfast deal which we did! Quick 15min ride to Notch and plethora of hiking spots in White Mountains!

Great Labor Day weekend

I had read some reviews that were unfavorable about the food...If there was a problem they fixed it. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! We were on the meal plan, myself my girlfriend and my 9 year old daugther this past labor day weekend. There are so many cool spots to visit in that area, Robert Frosts house, the views all over, gift shops, etc. The rooms were good.. but we were near a stairwell and it was a bit noisy, but with a few drinks in us and the AC and fan in room, it wasnt an issue. we stayed in the pool and hot tub all afternoon of our arrival. my 9 year old loved it and the ping pong table. The food was the hit of the weekend. on the meal plan, we could order anything we wanted for breakfast.. sides, beverages, etc. WE were stuffed. we only need to eat a snack for lunch while sightseeing. Dinner was a 4 course meal. the Pork tenderloins and Filet were excellent! Can t wait to go back!

We come every year in February and have always had a great time. The inn is charming, food is yummy. We see many of the same staff every year. Never had a problem. We even came an extra time in July for our anniversary. Very nice!!

Wonderful winter getaway - you never have to leave the property!

My husband and I visit every January for our anniversary and it is always a wonderful experience. It is a great value with prices you don't have to feel guilty about (especially after the holidays!). The Inn is well kept. The rooms are comfortable - and we always get a "cozy" room (their smallest). Their dining is exceptional. They serve both breakfast (hot) and dinner, and have plenty of on-site activities, so you never have to leave their property if you don't want to (a real plus during the winter). We love this place and look forward to going every year!
