We stayed at the Wayside Inn at the beginning of our vacation and once more at the end. The beds in both rooms were very comfortable. There is a certain charm to this inn, with the antique dressers and chairs in the bedrooms. On our first stay we were in a room with a king size four poster bed with...

I really enjoyed my stay at my very first Bed & Breakfast inn. The room rates were very reasonable compared to the many other inns, lodges, hotels around the area. We stayed here since it's in close proximity to Bretton Woods (around 10 miles or so away) and it proved to be very convenient at such a great price! If...

When we come back to the Wayside Inn each year we are coming back to "family and friends". The inn is cozy, the food is wonderful and the familiar faces (both guests and innkeepers and staff) are what keep us returning. We were engaged at the Wayside Inn 16 years ago and now our son is part of our annual...

For some years Judy and I have stayed at the Wayside Inn when traveling to the White Mountains. We have always felt welcome by Kathe and Victor. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated with hardwood floors and period furniture. Bathrooms are large. We especially like Victor's cooking at the restaurant with huge windows overlooking the river.

The Wayside Inn is one of those places that is good for the soul. The setting is beautiful on a mountain river. The inn is cozy and the innkeepers feel like family, both cordial and efficient. The delicious breakfasts and dinners are wonderful dining experiences overlooking the river. Nestled near Mount Washington, the Wayside Inn is always a relaxing getaway.

I've been going to the Wayside Inn in Bethlehem, NH, for over 10 years. It's my favorite place to stay when hiking or skiing in the White Mountains. The location is great -- with its central location, you can hike/ski Franconia Notch, Pinkham Notch, or Crawford Notch all within 20 minutes or so. The rooms are clean and comfortable and...

Stayed for 4 nights and could have stayed longer - friendly, cozy, quiet and clean. Our room in the main inn, was large with a very comfortable bed, overlooked the stream.

Everyone raves about the restaurant, its menu and its wonderful view. The Inn is old, historic, quaint and filled with simple charm. If you want fancy, its not your destination, but we loved it. We stayed in the original old part of the house in a room with rockers and a bay window with a glorious bright maple tree which...
