A spacious yellow Victorian with a wraparound porch, the Kearsarge Inn provides comfortable lodgings on a side street a few steps from North Conway Village. Rooms feature wall-to-wall carpeting, four poster beds, fireplaces, and ceiling fans. Four rooms on the first floor are large enough for families; in addition, the inn owns a two-room suite above the restaurant next door which features a gas fireplace, refrigerator, and space for six.

We stayed there the last couple nights, and really enjoyed it! It is a unique approach. There is a main building with some rooms and 3 buildings behind it with a few rooms in each. We were in room 15, and there was another room in the building. The room was spacious and very clean. There was a gas fireplace controlled by the thermostat. The bathroom was clean and the shower very pleasant. (they had complimentary soaps, but no hair conditioner, make sure you bring your own) We arrived late Friday night, and the management staff left our keys and instructions in an envelope in a predesignated location.
The location is ideal! It in the absolute heart of scenic and touristy North Conway. There’s a cute breakfast place about 100 yards away called the stairway cafe.
We were there for Story Land, which was about 10 minutes away. We would totally go again!!!
(FYI: to our neighbors in room 16, we are REALLY sorry for our toddler screaming all night Friday night. He doesn’t like new places.)
We've stayed at the Kearsage for close to 10 years. We visit the weekend after Labor Day for Mud Bowl. The Inn is in a perfect location - walking distance to the center of town, shops and dining. We've stayed in a number of rooms, all a little different, but always charming, clean and comfortable. Inn staff is helpful and friendly. Returning guest receive 10% discount. See you in 2020!
