I recently stayed at the Horse and Hounds for a series of day hikes in Franconia Notch. The H&H inn was a joy to return to after a long strenuous day of hiking. The rooms are immaculately clean, the surrounding grounds green and lush, and...More

We could not fault our meal at the Horse and Hound. There were four of us and we each ordered something different and all dishes were amazing. Would definitely come back.
