As a full service Inn we offer a bright and welcoming fire place dining room, an intimate Pub with live acoustic music on the weekends, a quiet, relaxed sitting room and comfortable sports/ game room to watch your favorite game, or play pool. Our grounds offer stunning views of Cannon and Lafayette Mountains and include an in-ground pool, outdoor fireplace, plenty of open space for family activities and events and a tranquil pond fed by adjacent Lafayette Brook. If this isn't enough, how about many miles of year round trails leaving from our property for your recreation and relaxation? This makes us one of Franconia's most scenic and fully-featured accommodations and we look forward to welcoming you. We are located only two miles from the base of Cannon Mountain, just minutes from Franconia Notch and endless amounts of outdoor fun.
Tucked away in the White Mountains, in the historic town of Franconia, New Hampshire, there has been a home here since before the United States would elect George Washington as its first President. Just a mere eighty nine years ago, Lovett's became a country inn , and before that it was a farm supplying produce to other hotels in the area
For over two hundred and thirty five years now, this old house has inspired relaxation and provided the quiet comfort that the White Mountains are known for. The Inn is filled with antiques and furnishings that bring a warmth and comfort that wraps itself around you.
Named after the earlier owners, Lovett's Inn balances the natural beauty of New England with antique decorative accents and a cottage design to make you feel right at home. More than just a synthesis of old and new, Lovett's Inn is meant to be both a second home and an homage to the uniqueness and beauty that New Hampshire and northern New England has to offer.
Chef and co-owner Michelle uses seasonally fresh ingredients to create delicious and satisfying options for breakfast.
Come in and savor the freshly prepared hearty and satisfying meals, served in style in our casual, fireside dining room. Reservations recommended. for parties of more than four.
After a fun day in the mountains, enjoy a dip in the pool or just lounge around it.
