Two of us stayed here while hiking the Appalachian Trail. This is a clean, family-owned property. Easy access to rooms, which aren't fancy but have all the essentials. We enjoyed sitting in front of our room (in the shade) and just enjoying life.

Sitting in the shade and enjoying life, it doesn't get better than that! We love to host our AT hikers and hear their incredible stories. Come back (you can drive if you want) and stay with us again sometime.

on a vacation trip in New Hampshire, a must stop for quiet and comfort. Situated near lots of attractions for all ages from 0 to 100 years old with places like Santa's Village, Story Land, North Conway Outlets not too far away, Mont Washington and so on. A place where you can relaxe between two exiting activities.

This motel is very clean, quiet, safe, and conveniently located. Story Land was just under 30 minutes drive away, Mount Washington auto road was around the corner, and food/convenience were a short walk. Would stay here again with my family.

I have come to central New Hampshire to hike in the White Mountains. Gorham is a prime location for what I wish to do.

I chose this inn based on location (proximity to Santa's Village) and friend recommendation. We were not disappointed! Room was clean and pool was enjoyable for my whole family. I will definitely be returning in the future and will recommend it to anyone vacationing in NH.
