Welcome to Evans Notch
Evans Notch Lodge and Cabins were established in 1938 by Cy Cole, who once owned much of the land at the northern end of the Evans Notch road (Route 113). Originally positioned directly on busy Route 2, Cy's efficiency cabins (and the motel rooms added later in the 1950's) offered a convenient and scenic rest stop for the growing number of automobile tourists vacationing in the White Mountain National Forest.
Today, Evans Notch Lodge once again offers your family or group of friends the perfect base camp for exploration of this beautiful 'neck of the woods'. After a day of touring or outdoor activities, come back to the Lodge and spend some time in the great room warming up by a roaring fire, or cooking together in the kitchen. Your group will have exclusive use of the entire property for the length of your stay, so you're also free to spread out and find your own quiet space in our motel bedrooms (year-round) and rustic cabins (May - October).
