Sue and Chet make you fill right at home. The breakfast they serve up is excellent and really starts your day off right. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Sitting on the front porch is a great way to relax at the end of your adventuresome day.

This is our second time staying at Kinsman Lodge. Sue and Chet are lovely hosts and they make you feel at home. The bed and pillows are comfortable. The soundproofing may not be excellent but it's an old house so it's expected. The bathrooms are shared but it's not really a problem as it is always clean. The breakfast is...

The owners, Sue and Chet Thompson are running a family friendly B & B with 4 star meals. The bed rooms are named after local places with comfortable beds.

This lovely wee spot is everything a B and B should be. Homely, comfy and welcoming. Sue and Chet are great hosts.

When we booked at Kinsman Lodge, we really didn't knew what to expect. We were also worried about the shared bathroom and it's cleanliness. We were welcomed by Sue who is absolutely adorable!

So comfortable. You can sit quietly on the porch or in the den, take a stroll, admire the garden and farm fields. Breakfast's main attraction changes each day but fruit, cereal, omelets and eggs to order are always offered.

We spent 2 weekend nights at the Kinsman Lodge and were very impressed. We were in town for the White Mountain Triathlon. Words can not describe how warm and welcoming Sue and Chet were during our stay. They want you to enjoy Franconia and gave us great tips while we were looking for hikes, stores, etc. They also made us...

Kinsman Lodge is the perfect NH inn. Friendly, welcoming hosts. Beautifully decorated farmhouse that has been in the owner's family for generations. Peaceful, quiet location. Delicious, filling breakfast. Porch for relaxing. I did not want to leave and I dream of returning here!

We just needed a place to sleep on a busy weekend in New Hampshire, but Sue & Chet made our short stay memorable. The warm, cozy atmosphere of their B & B made you feel at home. There were the Highland Games and Nascar that weekend in New Hampshire so rooms were not too plentiful but Sue made us feel...
