nice motel with lots of extras

Pros: Besides the location, the relaxed atmosphere was greatly appreciated.
Location: Hillwinds Lodge is near Robert Frost's house, the mountains, lakes, and our reason for traveling this time: Polly's Pancake Parlor.
Hillwinds was easy to find and close to our destination: Polly's Pancake Parlor. The room was very clean and quiet. We were on the 2nd floor and overlooked Gale River, a very pleasing sight.

Beautiful setting, thoughthful owners

This was my favorite hotel during a one-week stay in NH and Vermont. Our room had a balcony overlooking a small river. The room was large and comfortable with refrigerator and microwave. WiFi reception was good and they allowed free long distance calls in the US. Breakfast was good and served in a room that overlooked the river.
