If this isn't enough, how about many miles of year round trails leaving from our property for your recreation and relaxation?

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 ninety four years ago, Lovett's became a country inn , and before that it was a farm supplying produce to other hotels in the area
For almost 240 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.
Custom menus designed and freshly prepared for your event, including hors d'oeuvres, entrees and desserts
Let us do the work, so you can be a guest at your own party-
After a fun day in the mountains, enjoy a dip in the pool or just lounge around it.
In the Main House , in the cottages and around our beautiful grounds, you will have free access to high speed WiFi during your stay.
The fully stocked bar in our intimate pub is a great way to enhance your event experience. Our pub bar can stand alone or add to your guest's convenience when combined with outdoor bars for larger events.
In the summer months, enjoy a quick hike or bicycle ride off the back of the property on the miles of scenic trails abutting Lovett's Inn. During the winter months these are groomed X-country skiing trails and snow shoe trails.
