Carlson's Lodge
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Twin Mountain
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 February 2012

I went to the white mountains with a group that was staying at the Highland Lodge. Based on past experience, I wanted to stay somewhere more quiet. I selected Carlson's Lodge and was glad that I did. Carlson's is a nice, clean lodge with fireplaces blasting and a dog wandering around. Best of all, it was really quiet! The breakfast is really simple, but ok.

Just returned from a ski vacation to Bretton Woods and stayed at Carlson's Lodge with our two teenage children. I'm so glad we made the decision to stay there. I almost stayed on the Bretton Wood's property thinking we wouldn't want to drive to the resort but it's just a few minutes by car from Carlson's Lodge - even staying on site at Bretton Woods seems to require a shuttle bus. We had a corner room with a mini kitchen and our two teenage kids shared an adjoining room - each had their own full or queen (not sure which) bed. We have never had so much room on a vacation...usually one kid sleeps on the floor on an air mattress.

We loved the ping pong and pool in the basement of Carlson's...it was the highlight of our trip to play together at night as a family. Something we don't get to do often at home with our busy schedules.

The breakfast was great for convienence...cereal, toast, juice, coffee...really all you need to start the day. The breakfast room was so cozy and we enjoyed looking at pictures of all the guests who have stayed there over the years and the Carlson family.

We were there over the holidays and it was decorated so beautifully...each room and common area had Christmas decorations. Other reviewers have said it feels like being at home and it's really true! I am so glad I made the decision to stay at Carlson's Lodge. Carol the owner was so great making suggestions and tending to all our needs. She made recommendations where to eat, shop, etc. Her recommendation on renting ski equipment off site saved us alot of money. We were so appreciative of that.

I really have no negatives from our stay at Carlson's Lodge. It was the perfect place to stay for our family and it was really close to Bretton Woods ski resort. We loved it so much we may return in the summer to see some more of the beautiful sites in the area.

We felt most at home - - like we were sharing a room in their home. Yet it afforded the privacy we wanted for a relaxing getaway. The lodge is spacious with a design all its own. All over the lodge there are photos of folks who had stayed there with the dates on them. In addition, there were pictures of their own family displayed throughout the lobby. That usually means that it is a people-friendly place. Obviously this place is a home away from home for many past guests. So it gave us the confirmation we needed to trust our hotel choice.
Our room had everything we needed. It was neat and very clean. Didn't feel crowded. Plenty of room to move about and store luggage, etc. Bedding was comfortable. Slept great. Very quiet, cozy with wood stoves to warm the community sitting areas.
The owner went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and help us with restaurant choices--making phone calls for us, checking newspapers to help us decide. Where do you get that kind of hospitality and personal service?
She went out of her way to chat with us at breakfast even though she had just had surgery a few days prior to our stay. She is very dedicated to her guests and to her home.
A place where you can feel welcomed. Would definitely stay here again. Hope we get the chance.

We just stayed there this past weekend...Loved the charm of this family owned place. You dont need to spend alot to get what you need: The beds were comfortable, For breakfast its coffee / toast. cereal. . Which is fine to get yourself started. Only thing I would suggest, is bring your own pillow. These were to flat for my preference, . The rooms are clean, and big enough to relax in. There is also a game room in the basement level. The view out our window was of the mountains across the way.. Lots of wood trim and rails and a wood burning stove in the middle of it all. I would stay again when we go back to New Hampshire.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 107. front of hotel - top floor facing the mountains great view.

If you are looking for fancy and posh, keep on going. If you like clean, quiet, comfortable, and homey feeling, this is the place. And all with a great price.
Also an excellent location. Easy to get to area attractions.
We had a great stay at Carlsons Lodge. We stayed a week, came as strangers, left as "family".
We were there over Columbus Day weekend, they were full, and we never heard a peep from anyone.
Carol and her daughter Kate were nice, welcoming, and helpful.
The rooms were larger than I thought they would be and had a great view. The grounds were pretty with a few walking trails (snowmobile in the winter) out back.
Hopefully we will make it back there next year.
Thanks again for being part of a great vacation.

Room Tip: I might recommend a second floor room. It being a lodge, the floors are kind of squeeky. I don't...
