Travellers' Choice
Located at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road, The Glen House offers spacious guestrooms that are reflective of the simplicity of Shaker design, while the lobby embraces the history of the Mt. Washington Auto Road. Although inspired by the past, the technology of today separates The Glen House from its predecessors. The Glen House hotel will be close to energy self-sufficient and carbon neutral, thanks to a geothermal system that will provide heating and cooling as well as two offsite energy-generating projects harnessing hydro and solar power. The Notch Grille, our full-service and family centric restaurant, features your favorite North Country comfort foods – with a twist. Offering breathtaking views of Mount Washington, The Notch Grille is proud to support our local farms, breweries and distilleries – including our own private label vodka made at Tamworth Distilling. Enjoy a meal or beverage on our outdoor patio by the fire pit after a day of adventure.

Our first Covid shot free get away and we couldn’t be happier with our choice to spend 3 night at this friendly,charming cozy place. Rooms were clean and spacious nice balcony with view of the mountains. Bedding was particularly comfortable. Restaurant was small but nice menu. We really enjoyed sitting in the bar area. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. We definitely would stay here again and we would recommend it to friends.

The hotel is very clean and views are awesome from the back side. I had a front facing room but what I liked about it is that the basic King (Bed) room had a window and was roomy. The bathroom was roomy and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. I missed the coffee maker/hot water kettle as I am a tea drinker I did get a complimentary coffee on arrival at 3:00 p.m. but did not get a complimentary water bottle. I also missed a fridge in the room though not so much since I had short stay. There is a water fountain and snack dispenser machine in the first floor. Another thing I missed was the body lotion/moisturizer in the bathroom though soap, shampoo, body wash and hair conditioner were provided. Plenty of towels too! Overall I had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed the hotel and the delicious black bean burger for dinner!

Thank you for sharing. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. Coffee service is available in the lobby from 5:00 am, until midafternoon, it is always available upon request. While we sell boxed water, it is for a fee. All rooms have a mini fridge located in the cabinet, I regret that you didn't see it. Please come and see us again soon. Regards, Tom

From check-in to check-out, everything was delightful! Magnificent mountain view, supercomfortable mattress, outstanding shower, restaurant and bar on site, and socially distanced access to the salt water pool!. The only "?problem" is that the staff are ALL almost sickeni gly cheery! 🤣 We'll definitely return in future.

We had an amazing time at The Glen House, the staff at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. The views from our room was amazing. Our room was extremely clean...I cant emphasize that enough!! We were not told that there was no housekeeping so after being gone all day we came back to dirty towels still, I had to go down to the front desk and get more towels, toilet paper and tissues. The Notch Grill is nothing special but very over priced. We had spots on our water glasses and dried up food on our bread plates, no bread the first night but we got bread on night #2. Our drinks were great on night #1 and poor night #2. We did like the convenience of eating and having a few drinks at the hotel. The workout room was perfect for me and the entire facility was clean and beautiful. We will definitely stay again with no expectations for the Notch Grill. Well worth the money for the room we had.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts concerning your recent stay. We are always delighted to know when our guests enjoy their visit. Like that vast majority of the hotels in the country, We eliminated stay-over service last year. This is for your safety and the safety of the team. I apologize if this was not explained at check-in. Our restaurant features a family centric menu, comfort food with a twist. The price range is $17 to $24 dollars, which most consider to be an affordable option. We look forward to seeing you again. Regards, Tom

We love NH and specifically the White Mountains area. Our well behaved and trained 90+ lb GSD had his first hotel experience and we were so amazed at how welcoming everyone was! Will be back! The rooms are the cleanest I’ve ever experienced, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The location couldn’t be better.
