News and Views from the Carter Notch Inn

The Carter Notch Inn …Passing the torch of ownership! 

Built around 1879 by Cyrus E. and Marcia Gayle as a two room “annex” for overflow guests of their main inn, the Eagle Mountain House. As the Gale family grew, it was decided to enlarge the “annex” for use as the family homestead. Over the years other changes were made and at one time housed the serving staff of the Eagle Mountain House.

The Torch Is Lit In 1994 the “annex” was purchased by Jim and Lynda Dunwell, experienced innkeepers, who proceeded to restore, rebuild, renovate and redecorate the property making it into the charming eight guest room bed-and-breakfast inn that it is still today with the name Carter Notch Inn. Based on their past experience from owning and operating other inns in the Mount Washington Valley, they quickly established a very successful hospitality business. In 2004 Jim and Lynda decided to retire and sold the inn to Richard Green and Sally Carter from the United Kingdom.

The Torch Relay Begins Richard and Sally had been to New England on several vacation trips and decided they would love to own and operate a small inn. Upon seeing the Carter Notch Inn, they fell in love with it and the Jackson area. Over the next ten years Richard and Sally built up the business to the point that the Carter Notch Inn became recognized by the reviewers of Trip Advisor as the top bed-and-breakfast inns in all New England. After their ten years, Richard and Sally decided it was time for them to take on the challenges and rewards of a larger facility.

The Torch is Passed and Moves Into it’s Third Decade
