Dated decor, plenty of upholstery cluttering all open areas, pretty flowers outside and plenty of plastic arrangements inside. Good for overnight passing through . Very good value and easy to find location

Stayed: September 2017, travelled with family

Hi Elizabeth S,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry that our decor had such a negative effect on your stay with us. We recommend that prospective guests please take a look at our website as well as our facebook page and pictures on TripAdvisor to get a feel of our business. We are a Lodge in the White Mountains as well as a family business that is not a chain, all of which is reflected in the decor and feel of the common areas. However if our look is not something you would enjoy, we don't hold it against you and will be happy to make suggestions for other places to stay in the area. While the look we are going for is something not overly modern we do offer modern amenities. We have flat screen TV's and wifi in all the rooms as well having updated all of the rooms within the last couple years with new carpet, new wooden bed frames, new mattresses (one firm and one plush in all rooms with two beds), new flat screen TV's, new drapes, and triple sheeting the beds instead of quilts.

Thank you,
Will

I have enjoyed several stays at Carlson's for a White Mountain experience - most recently, late this summer. Located in Twin Mountain, an ideal location, just below the Presidential range. The grounds are well landscaped, with plenty of gorgeous flower beds and lawn chairs, all with a mountain view, including the well kept swimming pool! The lodge itself is immaculate, cozy, and welcoming. The staff, including the onsite owner are both friendly and helpful, and ready to provide guests with information and suggestions, about things to do and see to enhance your stay! The rooms are very comfortable and homey, some even have kitchenettes. The beds themselves are super comfortable and cozy. The continental breakfast is offered each morning, and has some of the best coffee I've ever had! In my view, on a scale from 1 to 10, this makes an easy 10! All of this with a fantastic value!

Room Tip: A room in the front of the building, provides a great mountain vista!

Had a fantastic 4 days in this lodge. Decided to stay here since we wanted to do the Cog railway and get to a few spots around the Flume Gorge area. It really had a central location to most of the activities we did.

Our corner room was very spacious and clean. Breakfast was simple but sufficient. They also had a game room on the basement and a terrace that provided a lovely view of the surrounding mountains.

Our host was also very cordial and had plenty of recommendations on where to eat and other things to do within the White Mountains.

My husband and I visited this lovely lodge on August 21st and what a wonderful stay. The owner was so helpful, kind and her son was also a fine young man. Our bed was comfortable, the room and bath clean and a perfect place to stay. I would highly recommend this as a "must stay"!!

Carlson's Lodge was a great place to stay! Stayed in the king size corner room with kitchen. The owner was sweet, helpful, and extremely friendly. She really went out of her way to make sure you were comfortable. Old charm, big yard to relax, and beautiful mountain view in the front. Would definitely come back!!
