This inn is a beautiful Victorian gem with many of the original details intact, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are spotless. The breakfasts are delicious. Pam and Jim will take good care of you and can offer excellent advice on things to do and where to eat. Highly recommend.

This is a lovely place for High Tea or a light lunch. Very quaint atmosphere with beautiful antiques. The owner is a very friendly hands on person, and wonderful chef. Throughly enjoy the High Tea, as well as a quick stop for soup and a scone. Worth your visit!!

We booked a room at the Silver Fountain Inn at the last minute. On top of that we had a very late arrival time. Pam could not have been more helpful. She left a note on the door with everything that we needed to know to access our room. As soon as we stepped in the door, we knew we... More

As patrons for many years, we still love this B&B! Charm and home like warmth fill every room. Pam & Jim clearly love owning and operating this home. Beds and rooms are vintage without being "old". Breakfast is a welcome wake up and always yummy! Parlor Tea always ready and relaxing. We say go. Kids too!!

My husband and I were in the middle of a stressful home building project and staying with friends and family while going through the process. We NEEDED a night away, but, were so exhausted from the experience that neither of us wanted to travel very far. We just wanted to relax! We were thrilled to stay at the Silver Fountain... More

Thank you and we're so glad we could provide you and hubby with a relaxing haven even though you live fairly local...sometimes it's nice to just to get away from it all but not spend the day traveling to get there! Glad you liked the scones...we are going to be selling/marketing them on line as well soon:) More

My sister and I stayed at the Silver Fountain Inn over the Halloween weekend and had a blast. They held a Murder Mystery Night that was GREAT. The Inn is beautiful and the owners treat you like family

What a comfortable 4-night stay! Pam (and her husband Jim) made our stay at their Silver Fountain Inn a highlight of our three-week fall vacation in New England! The Inn is a completely restored, yet very comfortable home of the 1880's. It's on a quiet, comfortable street and a perfect location for exploring upper New hampshire and southern Maine. we...

Five of us went to lunch on a THursday and it was great!! The hostess(owner) made us feel like it was our home. She told us to look at the open guest rooms even though we were just there for a couple of hours. We did not feel rushed what so ever. The only reason I gave a 4 star... More

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, quiet, comfortable room and breakfast look no farther. Great place, super people, and off street parking. Beautiful place with very friendly staff. 15 minutes to Portsmouth walking distance to town of Dover.

This is the 3rd time we visited the Silver Fountain under 3 different owners and Pam has done an outstanding job of continuing to provide excellent accommodations at a reasonable price. There are lots of stairs so if walking up too many stairs is a problem you might want to avoid the 3rd level or these older houses. Breakfast was... More
