We just got back from a week-long stay at the Eastern Slope Inn, and had a great time! We booked a studio room through RCI's last minute deals. Our room was in the Carriage House Suites, which is directly behind the main Inn. The room was very spacious... a few things to note about the room:
The first day we got there, there was definitely a strange smell... I think it was the cleaning solution they used for the carpet/couch upholstery or something. It aired out fine, but was a little irritating for the first night.
The bed was a queen sized murphy bed; not the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, but not the worst either. Definitely didn't have any trouble sleeping in every morning! We never pulled out the sofa bed, so I can't really comment on that.
There is a gas fireplace in the room; however, the fireplace is the heating source for the room, and only comes on when it senses that the temp is below the thermostat setting. It did a good job of heating the room, but you can't just relax with the fireplace on; once the temperature in the room hits the thermostat setting, the flames go out.
There is a very large jacuzzi tub in the bathroom (this was also the shower); nice for those who want to soak, but might make it difficult for people who can't step up very high to get into the shower.
There was a small kitchen area with a dishwasher, refrigerator, two burner stove, and microwave. We ate out just about every day, so we didn't really take advantage of this.
The hotel also had a nice indoor pool and jetted jacuzzi, as well as an outdoor jacuzzi that was more of a soaking tub. All were very clean and nice and warm, nice to soak in after a day of outdoor activities.
The location of the hotel is great! We spent the week xc skiing and showshoeing. There is a great xc ski area across the street, and a state park right down the road as well with great views of two rock/ice climbing ledges. It is only 20-30 mins to Great Glen trail area, which is also the base of the Mount Washington Auto road. The inn is a very convenient walk to many restaurants and shops in the village, and the outlet shopping is only 5 mins away. There were also quite a few ski areas within a 30 min. radius (we are not big downhill skiers, so we didn't explore these on our trip).
Overall, we had a great trip and would not hesitate to come back to the Eastern Slope Inn!
