Located in the famous White Mountains of New Hampshire, Carlson’s Lodge puts families close to outdoor adventures — skiing, snow tubing, zip-lining and more — at Bretton Woods (and beyond).
The budget-friendly hotel provides cozy rooms with one queen or two double beds, as well as rooms that include kitchenettes with mini-fridges, microwaves, coffeemakers, toasters and two-burner stove tops. All kitchenettes are conveniently equipped with cookware, as well. Be sure to consider the Two Room Family Suite, which is two connecting rooms — one with a queen bed and another with two twin beds. All accommodations are equipped with free Wi-Fi. A communal refrigerator and microwave are available for those who don’t have in-room kitchenettes.
Family-friendly perks at Carlson’s Lodge include a living room for families to relax in; a game room with Ping-Pong and pool tables; an outdoor, seasonal swimming pool; and a playground. The hotel also provides complimentary breakfast and free parking. Ask about massage services and guided hikes.

We just returned from participating in the Railway to the Moon Steampunk Festival at the Cog Railway. We stayed at Carlson's Lodge and there is just no other way to describe it than a cozy home away from home. The day we checked in I was trying to find out about set up times and details for the Festival. Ms. Carlson knew everyone and popped on the phone and found out everything. She even came to our room to give us additional info later. We began referring to her as "Mom" she is so warm and helpful and just is the "cherry on top" of a wonderful comfortable stay! We will definately be coming back!!
We chose this hotel because of good review, reasonable price and proximity to Mt. Washington. It was comfortable and the owner and staff very friendly and helpful. Although it was August it had a ski lodge feel.
