The Notchland Inn Review

Built in 1862 by Sam Bemis, America's grandfather of landscape photography, the house conveys mountain charm on a scale unmatched in New England. It's simply a legendary setting, in Crawford Notch, in the middle of the forest surrounded by the mountains. Innkeepers Les Schoof and Ed Butler have left wood-burning fireplaces in every room, encourage you relax in big library, serve five-course meals, and give the range of the place to Gypsy and Crawford, their immense Bernese mountain dogs.

    The Notchland Inn Review

    We stayed one night at Notchland Inn and liked it. I saw a review that better bedding is needed and I would agree. The owners were very helpful even though the suggestion to go and have lobster at The Lobster Shack Two Lights on a Sunday was a bad one. The line up was looong and food quality very disappointing. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet and homey get away.
