This was my 5th time at the Inn, and my 4th time staying in the Crawford Room; and as always, it was such a great place to get away to! All of the staff involved, from owners Ed and Les, to their long-time staff Mark and Mary Ann, make you feel right at home- and what a home it is......
The building is truly historic, and in a very scenic location, but best of all, it is a very quiet, relaxing location. The rooms are all unique but equally comfortable- great beds and comfy chairs, and best of all, all have a fireplace to curl up and relax in front of- you can feel yourself slowing down. The Crawford Room, my favorite, is large and overlooks the Notch; but Franconia is beautiful, and my Godson and his girlfriend loved the coziness of the Evans Suite- you really can't go wrong with any of the rooms.
The one exception to the quiet was actually why I chose last weekend to be at the Inn- it is the annual "Steam in the Snow" charter train that literally pulls up in front of the crossing at the inn for a few "photo runbys". Loving both trains and history, it was great being able to step in front of the Inn after a delicious breakfast, and hear the sound of a steam whistle echo all through the Notch- it was music to my ears- and brings you back in time.
Everyone I have ever brought to the Inn falls in love with it, and I suspect you will too if you try it.
