My daughter and I spent one night here on our way to Bar Harbor. Pam was warm and friendly, and our room was beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast in the tea parlor was great !Wish we could have stayed for more than one night!

Hubby and I are High Tea lovers, and have spent many hours searching out this elusive little goody all over New England. We are thoroughly delighted to have found the Silver Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor in Dover, NH - about 1 ½ hours northeast of Nashua or about the same distance up Rt 95 from Boston. For the very...

This Victorian home, built in the 1870's, is beautifully appointed. Our room was very comfortable with private bath and comfortable mattress. The grounds were kept up nicely. Nice selection for breakfast which was very good. Our hostess was great! Would definitely stay there again. Our daughter goes to UNH and althought this is not right in Durham, it is close... More

From receipt at a late hour to departure we loved our stay. It was obvious that our hostess loved her house and her business. A must stay in New Hampshire! Comfortable big beds, individual bathrooms, and great interesting breakfast.

I was looking for a place to give the wife a romantic weekend away - the Silver Fountain Inn was a fantastic success. The building is beautiful and the owners have kept it period authentic.

It was a pleasure to meet both of you plus being able to help you in a romantic get-away! We loved hearing about what you did around the Seacoast and are updating our site to include some of your findings. Jim and I take great pride in preserving our little gem in Dover and appreciate your positive feedback! More

I can't say enough positive things about our experience with the tea house. My mother and I hosted my sister's bridal shower here (about 25 adults) and from the beginning were very impressed with the owner's (Pam) communication. Pam was very accommodating with our requests and flexible the day of the shower. She was a delight to work with and... More

This was a gift from our family for a murder mystery weekend. Had a lot of fun in participating in it, but the best part was staying in this lovely inn. There was not one thing wrong with it.
