We stayed one night of our vacation at the Silver Fountain. What a treat! Pam could not have been more gracious. Our room was beautiful. Breakfast was memorable and delicious. Pam even shared her scone recipe with us,

My husband and I visited saturday July 18, 2015, and really enjoyed the experience. The home is an amazing shape, decoration is lovely, and the food was delicious. It was a hot day, so we opted for a cold tea- I had the Lavendar Lemonade hybrid, and it is my new favorite drink! He has a turkey sandwhich, and wasn't... More

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.

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
