Just come across this thread and couldn't resist adding my own thoughts to it
I've not yet read all of Lovecraft's work, but from the big chunk that I have, I would have to say The Dunwich Horror is my absolute favourite. The story is just so immersive from the start, I was totally drawn in. The first story of Lovecraft's that I'd read was Call of Cthulhu, but it was Dunwich Horror that got me on board for this ride!
Two runners-up have to be The Thing on the Doorstep, which was just awesomely creepy, and The Shadow Over Innsmouth, for the atmosphere.

It always will be The Dunwich Horror. Follow-up is At the Mountains of Madness.
