My husband and I recently attended the Scottish Highland Festival, a three-day event in Lincoln New Hampshire at Loon Mountain. During our visit we stayed at this delightful Bed and Breakfast in Franconia. Upon our arrival we noticed, in their sweeping, beautifully groomed back yard a very large black bear, lolling in the sunshine. Far enough away to be safe, close enough to the edge of the woods to make a hasty retreat if anyone made an appearance, this impressive visitor seemed right at home.
Each of the next two mornings brought visitors- early Saturday morning a small group of deer, and on Sunday morning, a flock of turkeys. There is a large, comfortable back porch where we enjoyed our breakfast each morning. Against the back drop of the beautiful White Mountains, it was just remote enough to be peaceful, but close enough to the highway to make our way to Lincoln (about a 20 minute drive) for all the fun.
The common room is spacious and the breakfasts generous and home made- our room was immaculate and charming and provided a wonderful view. The bed was extremely comfortable! Everything was just as we hoped it would be. The hosts were friendly and engaging and were thoughtful enough to send us a thank you note after we arrived home.
We will definitely consider returning next year.
