“Peacefull and Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

Spent late June here for a couple days 2012. Did a Groupon which included horseback riding, dinner and breakfast. Fantastic deal ! The property was very quiet and relaxing other than the occasional plane from the business across the street. A nice trail to walk and river to get wet in if you so desire. Dinner and breakfast were yummy so no complaints there. Pool and bar were also very nice. We enjoyed the fact the room did not have a tv just to get away from it all.Never fear Wi Fi is available on the property. All in all had a wonderfull time and would recommend it to all.

Room Tip: May want to try to get a room towards the back so you dont hear the airplanes across the street as m...

We stayed in Franconia Inn over 2013 MLK weekend. While our plan was to ski nearby Cannon Mountain, we chose this hotel for the restaurant and the family friendly amenities that they have on premises (ice skating, tube sledding, etc, cross country, etc...). We got a decent room that fit all four of us (2 adults, 2 young kids) but the quality of accommodations does not explain nearly $200 per night room charge.

The main issue was complete lack of sound isolation. To illustrate the point: When my son sneezed in the room, our next door neighbor, FROM HIS ROOM, was able to say "Bless You" faster than we did.

The second issue we had with the hotel was at check in. We were supposed to arrive between 1 and 2 am because we were driving from far away. We thought we pre-agreed with reception that we would be able to come in without a problem. We arrived to find locked doors and no ability to enter. It took a phone call to their night service and subsequent visit from the owner (nearly 45 min later) to let us in. The owner was super nice and apologetic, but nevertheless this was a problem.

On the bright side the restaurant is great both for breakfast and dinner and the tubes and ice skating rink are a lot of fun. The staff was nice and helpful, but unfortunately i do not think we will be coming back.

My husband and I with another couple of great friends enjoyed two nights at the Franconia Inn this week. We bought a groupons for two nights per couple, with one day Cannon Mt. ski tickets, a full breakfast each morning, cross country ski trail fees and $25 towards dinner each night. It was a fantastic deal, mostly because the food was outstanding. Normally we would of eaten somewhere different the second night but we enjoyed it so much the first night, we ate both dinners in the lovely dinning room.
The Franconia Inn is very well maintained for an old New England Inn. It also offers a lot of activities like ice skating, snow tubing, a hot tub, a pool table, game room, miles of trails to snowshoe or cross country ski and also lots of places to relax. We went snowshoeing, skied, relaxed in the hot tub, sat by the wood fire, enjoyed great meals and had the place pretty much to ourselves.
The rooms were comfortable, quiet, and clean. The staff was helpful and friendly!
I am not sure how it would of been if the inn was full of people and noisier. But I can surely say we enjoyed a wonderful couple of days!

BF and I spent New Year's weekend at the Inn. As others have said it is "rustic but very comfortable" -- not luxury accomodations but quaint, clean, comfortable and accomodating. No TV in rooms, huge big screen TV in basement of lodge, wi fi not strong but acceptable, the meal service is OUTSTANDING -- dinner service is wedding appropriate -- well prepared, served correctly and delicious (you never walk away hungry at either breakfast or dinner). There is ALOT to do either on premise or off. Within 1/2 drive of 2-3 mountains for skiing, hiking. Very reasonable for what you get -- it is my new Vermont (I have been going to VT for past 10 years for skiing/hiking but have found NH far less commercial). Oh yes, staff is just lovely (friendly, not intrusive). This is the type of place that one goes to - to be taken care of (but not pampered), left alone to commune with nature and left to feel yeah, that was a terrific lovely weekend to spend with my mate (or family). Enjoy.

Room Tip: We had a spacious room (a tad bit larger than cozy) and were perfectly comfortable with two adults...

We enjoyed a wonderful two day get away over Christmas. I would describe this as a a rustic but very comfortable and charming country inn. There is a wonderful fire place and setting area in the lobby, perfect for after skiing along with the chocolate cookies and hot drinks that are left out. We took advantage of the outdoor hot tub but be prepared for a 20 foot dash indoors. Our standard room was very comfortable with a queen sized bed, a lot of pine, and a great view of Franconia Notch. There are no TVs in the rooms (or phones), which was fine with us. There is a giant TV in the basement with a nice selection of movies. Unfortunately, we could not take advantage of the cross-country skiing or skating as winter didn't arrive until after we left. We really enjoyed the breakfasts and a dinner in the dining room. I would highly recommend this place for people looking for quiet and relaxation or skiers, hikers, etc but not if you are looking for luxury or to be pampered. Two minor complaints, the heat was inconsistent and the WIFI was not powerful enough.

I was there in the offest of off-seasons -- midweek in the late fall, after the leaves had fallen but before the skiing began -- and so I can't fully appreciate what it's like when the game room and TV room and restaurant are going at full-tilt. But I gotta say: This place was sweet. My room had an old-fashioned feel but all the modern conveniences, including a deep bathtub with plenty of hot water. My favorite part, though, was the inn's parlor, where I could curl up on the sofa near the large gas-log fireplace and read deep into the night. (And, to be honest, tap away on my laptop; there was good wifi.) A lovely stay, all too short.

This was our third year in a row... Innkeepers run a weekend special between foliage season and ski season... very reasonable rate that included dinner and breakfast... Great food as well... thinking of returning in the Summer as they have a nice outdoor pool and on-site stables for horseback riding...
