The Carter Notch Inn in a Beautiful Country Inn. The room was warm and comfortable with amazing views. Donna & Danny are welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was homemade and delicious. We had a wonderful, quiet vacation. Want to go back soon.

This was our second visit to Carter Notch Inn and it did not disappoint. Danny and Donna are the perfect hosts - welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable about the area and great cooks. Nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are excellent, view from the front porch is amazing. Very comfortable.

Our experience was excellent overall. Donna & Danny were very sweet. The inn was quiet, clean & quaint. However, the breakfast was heavy on carbohydrates, No eggs or whole grain anything. You felt like they were trying to cut corners with portiIons & little protein. This was irritating given the price and fact that most people staying there were hiking, kyaking, etc & need a decent breakfast.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review and we are very happy you enjoyed your stay. Per your comment of “no eggs or whole grain anything”, we would like to let those reading our reviews know that we alternate one day savory breakfast, the next day sweet breakfast. Our sweet breakfasts include a meat and our savory breakfasts include eggs. In addition to the breakfasts we serve, guests are able to help themselves to whole grain Cheerios, plus two other cereals. Donna’s homemade granola which includes whole grain oats, almonds, pecans and walnuts is also available every morning. When making a reservation on our website guests are given the opportunity to advise us of any special requirements, dietary needs, or foods they can’t or won’t eat for breakfast.

LOVED my annual stay at Carter Notch Inn!

Everything about Carter Notch Inn, from the rooms, service, magical location and our hosts Danny and Donna make it our annual choice for a friends union in the White Mts each year. I especially appreciate how accommodating they are to some of my dietary needs, AND that lovely complimentary wine on the porch in the evening. Thank you Danny and Donna for a great stay!

Innkeeper Response
Than k you for leaving your review regarding your annual stay. It is a joy to have the group come in and stay for a few days. Your strong bond of friendship is inspiring. We enjoy the groups company and conversation, always finding a few laughs along the way. Enjoy the remainder of the summer and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Danny and Donna are great host and helpful. The house is wonderful, and all the rooms are uniquely different and immaculate. Great different breakfast every morning. The surroundings are peaceful and pretty. Danny tells great stories, and great with directions and places to see and do. They sent us to some really nice restaurants. We stayed 2 nights and was sorry that we could not stay longer. Eileen
