“Not for groups”
Reviewed 12 February 2006

The Carter Notch Inn made it clear "couples only and zero noise tolerance" is expected. If you are traveling in a group of 4 or more steer clear. We spent the 2/10-12/2006 weekend at the Carter Notch Inn as a group of 8. We are in our late forties and up. The innkeepers stated SIX times Friday night duing our arrival quiet was expected. We would have preferred they declined our reservations. Little did we realize what an uncomfortable weekend was in store! Friday night we were all in by 11 PM. Saturday evening we gathered in the living room for some wine and cheese and the Innkeepers apologized to newly arriving guests that it was "never this way". Upon returning at 10:30 PM we went quietly up stairs and were watching TV when they knocked on the door and said to keep it down. One of our party was in the room next door reading and did not hear talking or the TV. Carter Notch is a nice place for 2 and a place to read. Our group got the hint Friday night and tried but the weekend was uncomfortable and not worth a repeat - even as a twosome.

This beautiful B&B is nestled on a hillside in the quaint little town of Jackson Village New Hampshire. The innkeepers, Sally and Dick, are warm, interesting, and attentive to your every need. I highly recommend this inn (note, children are not invited).
p.s. The breakfasts are just scrumptious!

This was the most beautiful, romantic place we've ever stayed!

First off, don't follow directions from Mapquest - you'll go the long way. Follow the directions on the Carter Notch Inn website.

The inn is beautiful, warm and welcoming. It's decorated very nicely in a country motif, which is fitting for the house. It's an old home with loads of character.

We were very warmly welcomed by Sally and Dick. Sally gave us a tour of the house while Dick brought our luggage to our room. The common areas are well kept -- large, welcoming fireplace in the living room, TV, big wrap around porch, small room with an internet-connected computer and complimentary drinks (soda, beer wine) -- all on the first floor.

The second floor was nicely decorated -- several guest rooms and a common area with a sliding door leading out to a deck with the hot tub. There was a great assortment of books in the 2nd floor hallway, too.

The third floor had the remainder of the guest rooms.

The hot tub was a joy! We really enjoyed it after a day of sightseeing -- sitting in 102 degree bubbling water when it was below freezing outside was awesome!

Our room was spectacular -- it was room 6. We had a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi and a walk in shower -- the bathroom was bigger than most economy hotel rooms. The bedroom has a nice sitting area, private balcony, gas wood stove and king bed.

Breakfasts were awesome!! Absolutely delicious and very, very friendly. Dick and Sally have quite a knack for making folks feel right at home and relaxed.

We had such a wonderful weekend that we're going back in April!

To be brief, the aforementioned reviews of the Carter Notch Inn simply DON'T do it any justice. To put it simply, Sally & Dick are EXEMPLARY as to what Innkeepers and thier Inn should be. And as for delightful Henry, he speaks for himself !! Our pics were taken while it was snowing, making the Inn look that much more seasonably beautiful. We stayed for the 2005 Thanksgiving holiday,and Dick made reservations for us next door for a Thanksgiving buffet. We also shared a wonderful chat with Sally & Dick by the fireplace in the front room. We plan to return to the Carter Notch Inn ASAP. Thank you Sally & Dick!!
