Historical Traveler Reviews Spruce Moose Lodge and Cottages North Conway
Most Wonderful Host & Hostess
Leon and Nellie are absolutely the nicest people we have met.
They have two cute dogs, that are people frendly. The lodge is very cute and its like stepping into your own living room. Nellie likes antiques so the rooms have antique furnishings in some of them. They are also very clean.I especialy like having your own bathroom and not having to share with other people as like other B&Bs. We also liked sitting on the porch after a long day of sight seeing.
Leon is a very good cook, and Nellie sets a very pretty table. They are wonderful to there guest and they try very hard to make you welcome. I would recomend there Lodge to anyone. Once you have stayed there, it is very hard to find another like it. We loved the Spruce Moose Lodge and would stay there again if in the area.
Loved the Stay,

Relax at the Spruce Moose Lodge
We recently stayed at the Spruce Moose Lodge and had nothing but a positive experience there. The idea of staying at a Bed & Breakfasts is still fairly new to us however after visiting the Spruce Moose Lodge, we'll actively look for more B&B's in the future. The owners, Nellie and Leon are inviting and lots of fun. With their background in the food industry, they prepare a great, hardy breakfast customized to how you might like it. Each of the rooms are cozy and clean too - even the pet friendly rooms! And if you want more privacy they have a several cabins that can facilitate couples or larger families - great for Family reunions. And as they say, location is everything. Beyond all that the lodge offers inside their location, within a short walking distance to downtown North Conway and it's variety of shops and restaurants, makes the Spruce Moose Lodge and ideal location for any season in New England.
Great Place and Dog Friendly!
My husband, dog and I stayed here for three days so I could enjoy the shopping and my husband and dog could enjoy the fishing. We stayed in a cottage while my friends stayed in the B & B. The new inn keepers where very nice and willing to accomidate your every need. They even walked my dog when we were gone. The cabins were clean and each had a fireplace and air conditioners for the humid mountain nights. We enjoyed wine and snacks with our friends in the B & B at night and sat with all of the other guests. We met alot of interesting people. The inn was about a half mile from the hustle and bustle of town, so it was very quite. We enjoyed a walk into town every night where we could shop and get ice-cream. We look forward to our next stay there.
A WONDERFUL newly upgraded Bed & Breakfast... "4 stars"
We have just returned from a weekend stay at The Spruce Moose Lodge and Cottages in North Conway, NH.
My wife and I go away for the 4th of July each year so we get the opportunity to stay overnight at different places. The past two July 4ths we have tried staying at Bed & Breakfasts ( which we had not done before ) and so far we have loved them both!
Each B&B experience is a little different and personalized by the particular owners' style which gives each B&B its own special flavor!
At Spruce Moose, this is the first season for the new owners, Leon & Nellie Filip, who are so welcoming and have done such a beautiful job upgrading, and systematically adding their own very classy touches and from what we have seen this past weekend, they have done a beautiful job with it!
Leon and Nellie personally greeted us when we arrived and made us feel like we were the most important people in the world! They gave us the "grand tour" and explained where everything was located! ( Like complimentary cold drinks etc ...Very nice touch we thought ! )
They then escorted us to our room which was even more beautiful than the pictures on the website were able to show ( and SPOTLESSLY CLEAN as were all the rooms we saw.) Leon and Nellie are working overtime to eliminate the bad reviews ( you have possibly read ) which happened during the previouis owners management!
Anyway, we can personally reassure you that the rooms are immaculate now and you most certainly will join us in returning again and again to this "BE-U-TIFUL" B&B !
We cannot close out our review without giving special appreciation to Leon for the amazingly delicious breakfast he so professionally prepared to order and the "presentation" of it all was impressive.
Additionally we must compliment Leon & Nellie BOTH for all the extra hard work we see them putting into keeping the property maintained day to day!
Congratulations you two!
We give this a "4 Star" rating!
You will Not be disappointed at The Spruce Moose!!
It was like staying with old friends
We recently stayed at the Spruce Moose lodge on a family trip to North Conway. We choose the location based on a freinds recommendation, and we were not dissapointed. I can only describe the expereince as staying with old friends.
when we pulled into the parking lot, the owners were already waiting for us as they played with thier dog. We were given the grand tour of the location before being shown to our room, which was not only spacious, but they had gone ahead and had the air conditioning running so the room was nice and comfortable for us. Plus it had a huge hot tub, which was nice after walking around all day.
after coming back from a long day at the local attractions and shopping, we decided to relax in the "great hall" as it was titled, and the name fits. Its like a smaller version of the main lobby of the Mount Washington Hotel, where we have stayed several times before. we relaxed, played chess while listening to music from the 40s. Our son was so relaxed he fell asleep right on the couch.
when we got up the next morning we were treated to a breakfast that my wife and I swore was prepared from a proffesional chef, but to our suprise it was prepared by the owner. We had blueberry pancakes with fresh blueberries, a huge ham steak, coffee, juice, breakfast potatoes and cofee.
the hardest part was leaving. I know it sounds corny but it's true. it was one of first real family getaways and the owners of the spruce moose made it a family vacation to remember.
we will be making it a family tradition for years to come.
Spruce MooseLodge- Great Place to stay!
We stayed at the Spruce Moose April 29-May 1, in the Dakota Cottage. It was not at all like the negative reviews we read on this web site.
The cottage was very clean (no dog hair!). The beds were comfortable, with decent linens and pillows.
The anteroom was perfect for my 9 year old son.
The cottage was very cozy, with a wonderful fireplace that kept it nice and warm and also added to the comfort of the place.
There was a full kitchen that we did not take advantage of, with a table for four. Even coffee was provided with the coffee maker.
The location is very convenient. The cottage was private and spacious. The owners recommended several restaurants that we all enjoyed.
The new owners are in the process of some major upgrades to the main building, and I will be back to see how it all turns out. They are very enthusiastic about this new venture, and with their previous background in the food industry (they were the owners of the Hot Rize Bagel Cafe in Merrimack) I am sure that the breakfasts will be wonderful.
I know that in the main building (the true "B&B") each room has a private bathroom.
The Great Room in the main building has some beautiful artwork, including quite a few Audobon prints and limited edition (Signed & Numbered) photographs that may soon be available for sale.
This is a place that I would stay again!
Cozy Bed & Breakfast, Great Location, Had an AMAZING Time There!!!!
I had the fortune of spending a weekend at this wonderful bed & breakfast. I stayed in one of the cottages with a jacuzzi. The atmosphere of the room was nice. It had a very New Hampshire feel to it. The room was equipped with a decadent fire place (which definately added to the cozy feel of the room). Reading the negative reviews above startled me because my experience was nothing like that. The place was VERY clean. From what I understand, the Spruce Moose Lodge has been taken over by new owners. I spoke to them for a little bit they were EXTREMELY cordial. I will defiantely be returning to this place. Next time I go there, I will be staying in the Governor's Bungalow.
Not For Me!
My family & I recently stayed at the Spruce Moose (Governor's Bungalow) for a Polar Express Weekend Getaway. While the cottage had some nice holiday touches (Christmas tree & lights, hot chocolate & fresh baked cookies) and the owner is very personable, we were disgusted by the lack of cleanliness > moldy, foul smelling bathroom, cobwebs in almost every corner, and filthy food caked on dishes, to name just a few. For $350/night, we have much higher expectations! We will not be returning!!!
Run don't walk away!
We stayed in Governor's Bungelow. It was dirty, full of dog hair on the floor and on the suppposedly clean towels! Yuck They was mold all over the bathroom tub and growing on the ceiling! The cabin was in desperate need of a new floor. The floor had sharp edges and was coming up at every corner of the cabin! You could not turn the water off all the way in the bathroom, due to the disrepair of the faucets. We found cobwebs everywhere! I would never let my kids stay here again! Not cheap either!
This inn is now called the Spruce Moose Lodge & Cottages. My family stayed in one of the cottages. It was neat and orderly. Nothing special, however, they do accept pets. For us, this was one of the reasons we stayed there. We brought our two dogs along and found it very convenient. It is located within walking distance of North Conway Village. But, is off the main road so traffic noise was not an issue.
It appears to be a family run business and everyone was very nice to deal with. Will stay there again.

I couldn't hear Deliverance playing so I thought we were safe. After a 5 minute wait for our table our waiter blew us away with his service and attention.
