Horse and Hound Inn
Ranked #1 of 5 Franconia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 January 2013

We stayed at the Horse & Hound inn for 2 nights in the autumn. The inn is in a very beautiful setting, off the beaten track. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful with advice on how to get the most out of the local area. We visited to experience the colours of the Fall and were treated to an exceptional display along the Kancamagus highway. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food and service were both excellent. Our room was lovely with a double aspect garden view. There are no televisions in any room which is refreshing. There is also a lovely library area, perfect for relaxing with a pre-dinner drink after a day outdoors. We would recommend this B&B for anyone visiting the area.

After a recent stay, I have to agree 100% with the other reviewers here on cleanliness, character of the building, friendly proprietors, reasonable rates and the excellent restaurant, however, there is one big catch....NOICE! However, if you are the "late to bed, early to rise" type, please disregard my comments here since this is the place for you! Look no further.

But, if you're like me, and seek quiet solace after turning in a bit early (by 10pm) after a long day of activity - seek alternatives.

As all the rooms are located directly above the restaurant, bar/lounge and library areas and the building has no natural sound barriers (other than the structural framing and beautiful pinewood flooring) - you WILL hear everyone's conversations downstairs (in interesting detail I may add) from your room (not to mention your fellow guests walking up and down the narrow hallways, chatting in their rooms, slamming doors, etc.). So in summary - we will be back!....but only for the food.

I wish the proprietors continued success (and perhaps asking them to consider budgeting for some sound insulation retrofits :) )

This Inn is a real jewel and after having stayed there now for the second time, we are sure to come back. The rooms are bright, clean and very cozy, Towels are very soft and smell nice, the bed is extremely comfortable. WiFi works well all over the house and a lot of magazines and papers are displayed in the lounge, as well as games that you won't get bored on a rainy day.
We arrived in threes and thought one has to sleep on a cot. The owners told us they'd have a spare room with just one single bed and no bathroom if we would like to sleep separate. They didn't charge us anything extra, what we thought was very kind.
The food is really good, we loved the rich breakfast and would recommend this Inn without any restrictions, the owners just make it very special with their hospitality.

This is a nicely located inn in a quiet area. When the restaurant at the inn is very busy it can be less than quiet, but overall a very nice experience. The food is excellent and breakfast buffet overwhelmingly great! Our room was very spacious and garden view beautiful with autumn color. Library is cozy.

We found the Inn a delightful surprise in a beautiful garden setting. The spacious common areas have an authentic country New England feel, furnished beautifully and full of character. Our bedroom was simple but stylish.Breakfast was great and Ken was a wonderful and helpful host throughout, Our only regret was that the restaurant wasn't open on the night we stayed there.

We found everything positive about the inn and would easily go to it again if in that area. The room was spacious, the breakfasts were tasty, the dinner we had met all of our expectations, and the inn-keepers and staff were very friendly and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
THE RETURN OF A CLASSIC. The Horse and Hound, located in the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire, first opened in 1946 as a tasteful inn, tavern and restaurant. With three fireplaces and knotty pine paneling throughout, the inn welcomed everyone from Hollywood stars to local outdoor enthusiasts and quickly established a reputation for great food, elegant lodging and warm hospitality. Now celebrating its 65th anniversary, the Horse and Hound was closed from December 2010 through June 2011 while undergoing a comprehensive restoration to its classic lodge style. Now completed, the cheerful tavern, gracious dining room, elegant lobby, handsome library/lounge, and nine restful guest rooms once again invite you to unwind and relax after an active day in the Great Outdoors. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to welcoming you back. FOOD, SPORT & STEWARDSHIP OF THE GREAT OUTDOORS. ... more   less
