On a winding country road, just past Robert Frosts summer cottage. The Franconia Inn has been welcoming guests since 1886. Elegant American cuisine highlights the Inns quiet country sophistication. On location, year round, recreational activities.
Situated on over 100 sprawling acres in Easton Valley, the Inn affords a breathtaking view of Mount Lafayette, Franconia Notch, and the Franconia and Kinsman Ranges of the White Mountains. Our prime New England locale provides easy accessibility to the small villages of Franconia, Sugar Hill, and Easton, as well as to the serene charm of the more quiet country life
Tastefully appointed, the Inn's decor is comfortable, inviting, and elegant. Handsome fireplaces add a warm ambiance to our oak-paneled private library and spacious living room. Two dining rooms; one quaint and intimate, with its own fireplace, and the other airy and cheerful with a Bermuda ceiling, offer fantastic views of the White Mountains. Our front veranda faces east to greet magnificent sunrises over Cannon Mountain, while our back veranda faces west to catch the setting sun behind Sugar Hill.
Our lovely 3-story white clapboard colonial style Country Inn includes: 29 beautifully appointed cozy guest rooms, 3 luxury suites, a living room, library, 2 dining rooms, a Ratheskeller Lounge, and 2 spacious verandas. And Oh what a view! Feast your eyes on the White Mountain landscape in all of its resplendent beauty!
As the spring temperatures melt the winter snows, a marvelous transformation at our B&B takes place. Four striking red clay tennis courts and a large, sunny outdoor swimming pool emerge to once again invite eager tennis players and swimmers. Cross-country skis, boots, and poles give way to horses, saddles, and stirrups. Scenic bridle trails replace snow-packed ski trails, and our friendly ski instructor dons his equestrian hat as a skilled wrangler. Our ski shop reverts to the barn, and where heaping snow banks once towered, lovely gardens team with brilliant new life. Our snowy airfield with its lone windsock reasserts itself as a bustling grassy glider port, catering to first-time passengers and experienced pilots alike. Behind the Inn, the mighty river gushes with verve and vigor to add a splash of personality!
After a scrumptious dinner, saunter on downstairs to our rustic Rathskeller Lounge, or on to our game-room complete with ping-pong table, video, and pinball games. Be sure to check out our big screen TV movie room too!
