Gilcrest Cottages and Motel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We just spent a weekend at Gilcrest Cottages. We were up in NH visiting our son who goes to PSU which is only 10 minutes away. We brought our two younger kids ages 11 and 12 and stayed in the Welch & Dickey cottage. We were very impressed by how clean and well kept the cottages are- they do a truly exceptional job at maintaining their cottages which I think is rare in this day! We were very comfortable here and our kids loved it too. Room for the kids to play on the lawn, and we played horseshoes also at their pit. Too late in the season to enjoy the pool....maybe next summer. What makes this even better is that the prices are very fair and reasonable for a very nice place to stay- which is why we will definitely be back. Gary and Julie were also very friendly and helpful and our kids loved their dog Pemi. :)

My Husband and I spent 6 nights in cabin 9 . The cabin was very neat and clean when we arrived. We had let them know it was our first visit to the area,and we found information on the area ,weith suggestion where to go and routes to take to get there with things to see along the way. We also got suggestion on places to eat . All suggestions we took were excellent. We were continually asked if wqe needed anything. It was a perfect spot with PERFECT PEOPLE. We will happily recommend Gilcrest Cottages to all our friends. We hope to get back,but well fondly remember this trip .

Room Tip: Let them know your needs and they will give you the perfect place.

Adorable cozy cottages and it was very clean and neat! Felt very comfortable to stay in! The owners are friendly and great to talk to and very accommodating... A few complaints: There were some tiny flying insects each night that were attracted to the lights; the bed was not that comfortable; and lastly, the water pressure in the shower was not great. Other than these small things, a great place to stay and I would definitely return with friends and family! It is a charming place and lots to do with the clean, huge inviting pool area and horseshoe pit!

This was our first experience at Gilcrest Cottages, as we were listening to my nephew's band at a local establishment. We love Gilcrest...very clean, cozy and I didn't even see a spider..YES!! and it certainly helps to have a wonderful couple that run the place..we will be back!

Room Tip: We loved the 2 bedroom, #9 little cottage.

This was not our first stay, and will not be our last.
Cottage #7 was a great size for the 5 of us, lots of room to spread out.
The cottages are clean, comforable and quiet. We used the pool, BBQ and the horseshoes too :-)
There is lots to do in the mountains, and the Gilcrest Cottages are within an easy drive to all of them.
Julie and Gary (and Pemi too) made us all feel welcome.

This was our first stay but won't be our last. We stayed in cottage #3 and it was perfect! Clean, comfortable and quiet...all you could ask for. Julie and Gary made us very welcome and were so helpful with dining suggestions.

After reading other positive reviews my husband and I opted to stay here during our vacation to the White Mountains. Our experience was fantastic. The owners are friendly and helpful. We had a question about temporary fishing licenses and Julie wasted no time in calling the info center to answer our questions. The motel is off the beaten path but still convenient to all the White Mountains has to offer. We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay in this quiet little nook on route 3. We would absolutely stay here again.
