Having enjoyed a truly wonderful stay in the Library room on our first visit we decided to try Laurel Cottage, beautifully situated in the extensive grounds of the Nehemiah Brainerd House. When we returned in mid October 2015, Maryann and Jeff welcomed us back like old friends and took time and care to ensure we were happily settled in. Staying... More

This B& B is decorated in a fashion very true to the age of the house. Our room was very comfortable and, since there were no other guests on the second floor, the shared bath was not a problem. Our hosts knew the area very well and were able to guide us to little shops where we could pick up... More

I stayed at the Nehemiah Brainerd House with my family during my wedding weekend (October 3, 2015), which was held at the Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station. We occupied the entire property - the main house, cottage, and carriage house. Our stay was fantastic. We took our wedding photos on the property in front of a majestic stone wall that over... More

Stayed at the Nehemiah Brainerd House last weekend. Had a wonderful time. We stayed in the library suite of this beautiful, 100+ year old home. Complete with an en-suite bath, it was very comfortable, immaculate and quite roomy. Our group occupied the entire property so we got to see the beautiful Spruce Cottage and contemporary garage apartment. NB's location and... More

We stayed in Spruce Cottage which is a dream. Jeff and Maryan made unerringly good suggestions about what to do in the area. NB despite the title it is not a B&B. No breakfast is served but the area abounds with wonderful places for breakfast. We fully intend to go back.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We're so glad you enjoyed your time here. A bit of clarification, The Nehemiah Brainerd House B&B has guest rooms in the main Inn, where breakfast is served and we have two stand alone guest houses; the Laurel Cottage and the Carriage House. Because the guest houses have their own kitchens, we do not... More

Jeff and MaryAn are wonderful hosts and innkeepers - the house is immaculate, beautiful and comfortable. The outside sitting area and grounds were the most beautiful setting we've had at a B&B. We so enjoyed getting to know Jeff and MaryAn and had many good laughs - though they are very conscious of the need of privacy for their guests.... More

A delightful experience. We went up to see a friend appearing at the Goodspeed Opera House. We discovered the Brainerd House pretty much by chance, but found it to be exceptionally well-located and run by a considerate and meticulous couple whose helpfulness and conviviality were remarkable. We were only there a short time, but certainly hope to return, stay longer,... More
