What a Surprise

5 on June 27, 2017

Had a great time in the Franconia and Littleton area. On our last night, we stayed at Lovett's 1784 Inn. While checking in we discovered the wonderful innkeepers Jim and Karen Frietas had been our neighbors in Massachusetts 20 years earlier. Our stay was great and Karen cooks a superb meal!

A Great Stay

This was third time we have stayed at the Lovett Inn. We both love it here, great room to just relax in. Breakfast was delicious and the owners are outstanding. We will definitely keep coming back each time we are in the area.

What a wonderful Surprise!

After spending a long anniversary weekend with our family in the Littleton/Sugar Hill area, we decided to decompress by staying an extra night by ourselves. We chose Lovett's Inn in Franconia to chill out a bit. Upon arriving we were greeted by Jim Frietas who, with his wife, Karen are the owners of this beautiful place in the mountains. What really surprised us was the fact that we had been neighbors (with abutting property lines) in Massachusetts nearly 20 years ago. We had no idea they had become innkeepers, but what a wonderful coincidence. Our stay was lovely, with a sumptuous dinner (prepared by Chef Karen!) and breakfast looking out at the view. It was great catching up with Jim and Karen after all these years. We stayed in one of the cottages, number#9, spacious and well appointed, the bed was terrifically comfortable, hot water in abundance for our showers, and a nice jacuzzi in the room. Hope our travels bring us this way again - we'd love to stay here again!

Our weekend at Lovett's Inn

We enjoyed our two night stay at Lovett's Inn. The Inn is charming and very well maintained. Janet and Jim were so friendly and hospitable. We were served wonderful breakfasts every morning. We learned so much about the area from them and had good suggestions on places to visit. We were in the main house but there are also cottages in the back. It would be a great place for family reunion.

Wonderful stay at Lovetts Inn

We had such a lovely romantic getaway in February of 2017. Although it was quite cold, having the fireplace in our room was quite lovely. The heat in the room was wonderful as well. We stayed in the Morning Glory cottage. The room was very clean, Janet came in and cleaned while we were out venturing. She always waited until everyone was gone to knock on the door and clean our room. We did not eat at the Inn but it looked very good and the tables were all decorated with Carnation flowers. It was very nice. I would definitely recommend this Inn for couples looking to getaway.

Wonderful B&B in Franconia

Jim and Janet are excellent hosts in a perfectly located inn that provides all that is needed for an enjoyable experience regardless of your purpose. We have been going to this inn for 10 years and it strikes a wonderful balance in value and service. What makes this place our go-to inn are the innkeepers. From my experience, there are no better when it comes to making you feel welcomed and making sure you are comfortable.

Nice place and kind innkeepers

The rooms are comfortable and located in bungalows in a large garden. The drawback is you need to go in the lobby to get WIFI connection. My guidebook pointed out a good place for dinning, but the restaurant was closed at that time of the year.

We stopped at Lovett's Inn for one night on our way to and from a 4 day hiking trip hut to hut in the White Mountains. What a treat! The room was cozy and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. Jim was helpful and accommodating with suggestions for what to do in the area. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
