This was our 8th or 9th stay at Carter Notch Inn and every return visit is more enjoyable than the last. In fact it has become a tradition to visit a couple of times a year.

I have been coming up to Jackson for the past ten years or so and have stayed in several different inns. Carter Notch Inn is far and above the best.

The moment I entered this warm and intimate inn, I knew it was a place I'd want to come back to. The location is perfect... off the beaten track, a short walk ( approximately 3/4 mi ) to the charming village of Jackson, New Hampshire where it's easy to find a good place for dinner, and a short distance from...

In Chinese, we'd say "宾至如归" to describe a place which felt exactly like one's own home. We'd also use "无微不至" to account for something that is so meticulously taken care of. Carter Notch Inn fits both description very well and more. We stayed for 5 nights with Danny and Donna and had the time of our life. Countryside America was... More

Traveled from Georgia to summit Mt Washington and spend the night at the observatory. This was my first stop. Donna and Danny were great. I really can't say enough good things. Danny even got up a little early to cook breakfast since I was on a hard schedule that day.
