A place to recharge

Our annual visit to the CNI never fails to provide an opportunity to rest, explore and revive after the holiday season.

This was my first B and B experience. I highly recommend Carter Notch Inn. They set the bar high. Hope to return again.

Wonderful experience!

I took my wife for a surprise getaway to New England for her birthday to see the fall colors. After much research I booked with Danny & Donna at Carter Notch Inn and they were great. They stayed in touch with me prior to our arrival and even were able to accommodate a special request of a champagne, cheese and fruit tray for my wife in our room. The breakfast every morning was outstanding with a variety of food. Danny listened to what we wanted to see and do and had maps ready every morning with the perfect itinerary and recommendations. I picked Carter Notch Inn because it seemed to be the only true B&B in the area, it’s quiet picturesque location, and it’s close proximity to so many beautiful drives and sights. We will stay there again. Danny and Donna are perfect inn keepers and make you feel like you are visiting friends. We couldn’t be happier.

Innkeeper Response
It was wonderful meeting you both. We're glad the leaves waited up for you to enjoy before falling quickly. We enjoyed our conversations and your excitement in telling about your experiences in the White Mountains.
