“How to truly get away for a weekend........”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

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.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the Notch, rooms such as Crawford, Franconia, Pinkham, and Bear are the best...

The Notchland Inn was a perfect place for our family to be together for a few days of Christmas. Common rooms were beautifully decorated for the season with a mix of traditional (two incredible trees) and whimsical. Each of the large guest rooms had a fireplace, beautiful views of surrounding forest and mountains, and really cozy decor. Breakfast time is a range from eight to nine-thirty and coffee is up at seven-thirty. Nice to bring it to the room to drink in bed. Prix fixe dinners with two choices for every course,were amazing. There was a surprise gift on Christmas morning. The wonderful innkeepers are there it you need something or want to talk about the area or the inn but are unintrusive if you just want to sit and be quiet. It was such a peaceful, beautiful place to relax and enjoy family.

Room Tip: I would say any room.

My wife and I spent our 7th wedding anniversary at "The Notchland Inn" during the week end of October 25th thru the 28th. This happened to be when the Inn was doing their "Ghost's and Gobblin" themed event. What a blast, we got to let our hair down and wear costumes, travel around the local area, visit other inns and bakeries that were participating in the event, sample a lot of yummy treats, and meet great people !! The night time ghost reading at the grave site and the ghost walk in the woods to the falls was fun, every one had a blast! The Inn its self is just wonderfull, and the cottage "The Willard" was breathtaking. We especially enjoyed the fact that we could travel and stay at the inn with our two small pups(Kokoa and Farley) whom enjoyed meeting the Inn's two big dogs (Crawford and Felonie). The dinners and breakfasts were truly enjoyable, great food and service.

The Notchland Inn is a destination in itself. Relax by the fire, read the paper,enjoy dinner without having to schlep to a different location and stand in line. The rooms are spacious and very nicely decorated. Large windows give a view to the mountains around the inn. The dining room has a view of a small pond with lots of bird feeders and plenty of activity between the birds and squirrels. They serve a pris fixe dinner in the evening with delicious food. I had an excellent cream of mushroom soup, a crab cake which was deliciously flavored, salmon cooked perfectly and a wonderful blueberry crisp. They have a rule that you can have seconds on dessert until they run out. I wish I could have tasted the chocolate cake, but I was too full. N. Conway is a quick 22 mile ride down the road and all the mountain sights are relatively close. The site is very quiet and peaceful. They do have wifi now, but the mountains block cell phone signals, which to me is a big plus. There are lots of hiking trails nearby. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Don't want to go into detail, but I was disappointed; the many reviews here are a mystery to me. I think Crawford Notch is beautiful, but Hart's Location does not compare in beauty to a little north of here in New Hampshire.

My wife and I took a couple of days to visit the White Moutain area in NH and we stayed at the Notchland Inn which turned out to be a great find. The owners Ed and Les along with their Bernese Mountain dogs Crawford and Felonie are very friendly and very helpful. Ed took some time with us a breakfast (the food was ample and excellent) to answer questions that we had about the hiking trails in the area. Ed first asked about our hiking abilities and then proceded to show us on a map what trails he thought would be best for us. We choose the Black Cap trail, Arethusa Falls trail, Mount Willard trail, and Diana's Baths trail all of which turned out to be well worth it. We had dinner at the Inn on our first night and it was over the top which we both gave it a five star rating. The food was well prepared and very tasty. The service was right on and we would recommend that you make reservations if you want to have dinner there. Our spacious, clean, and comfortable room (Bear) was on the second floor at the corner of the house which had a king bed, fireplace, couch, and a shower stall bathroom. No cell phone reception and TV's are at the Inn which makes it very peaceful. We now understand why this Inn gets rave reviews and is listed as one of the top rated Inn's in New England.

Notchland inn is definantely not for everyone. The Inn is very old which for us is very charming. The bathroom however could use some upgrading but with keeping in mind the historical authenticity. It seemed to be a bit overpriced considering everything. The breakfast was very nice but the decor seemed to be too modern to match the rest of the house. We did not feel like we should have had to retrieve our own firewood daily.

Room Tip: Be aware that this Inn is far from town. There is no cell phone coverage and no TV. We love dogs b...
