My boyfriend and I spent two days at the Franconia Inn in the middle of winter, and it was a really lovely little vacation.
Pros: Everyone at the inn was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was surprisingly good for being so isolated! The inn has a LOT of different things to do -- they have an outdoor hot tub (fantastic in the cold winter mountain air), game room, etc. There were even bikes you could take out and ride around in the vicinity, including a tandem bike!! The environs are gorgeous. Clean air, great views, and easy hikes are right in the vicinity. Unfortunately, there wasn't so much snow on the ground when we were there, but we were told that the skiing is very good as well.
Cons: The rooms could bear to be updated a little bit and the heating system is pretty loud (clanking radiators).
