The Franconia Inn has been serving guests since 1863 and sits on 107 acres of land in Easton Valley. The three-story building is in the colonial style and has 35 rooms within the inn with a double bed in the Cozy rooms and a queen and single, two double, a queen, or a king in the Spacious rooms. There are also Standard rooms, which are somewhere in the middle.
All rooms have private baths. Guests can also consider staying in one of the suites, including the Honeymoon Suite with its Jacuzzi and view, the Family Suite that connects two rooms with a common bath, and the Inn Suite with a queen bed, queen sleeper sofa, Jacuzzi, balcony, kitchenette, and fireplace. Larger groups can stay in the Kinsman Cottage.
Because of the large property, guests can enjoy numerous activities right on site. There is fishing, swimming, glider rides, tennis, hiking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, ice-skating, and groomed trails. Inside, you can relax in the living room or private library, both of which have fireplaces. There are also verandahs in both the front and rear of the building. Guests can enjoy a country breakfast in the morning or make a reservation for dinner. After, spend an evening relaxing in the Rathskeller Lounge.
