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. The food, accommodations were excellent. Both Jim and Pam, the owners, are wonderful people. You wish they were family if not... More

We were just trying to find someplace to stay in Dover where our son and family live, and happened upon this B&B. What a wonderful surprise! We straggled in after a hard day of cross-country skiing and Pam greeted us at the door with a smile and let us into this absolutely lovely inn. The inn retains all its 19th... More

We had the wonderful pleasure of staying at this amazing bed and breakfast for New years Eve. There are not enough words to express how simply fantastic our experience was. Jim and Pam are so very kind and made us feel very welcome. Our room was extremely clean and cozy. Breakfast was a delicious treat filled with scones, juice, omelettes... More

Had tea at the Silver Fountain Inn today and I could not be happier with our experience.

The owner Pam was very friendly and inviting. The room was very nice with alot of antiques. It was spotless and well appointed. Pam had cookies and coffee out when we arrived. She had a large assortment of loose leaf teas which my wife absolutely loved. Pam asked what type of things we liked for dinner and was able to... More

What a beautiful Inn. Our stay was wonderful and the innkeeper and staff were great. This was our first time at the Inn, but it most certainly won't be our last. We felt right at home the whole time we were there. Pam, Jim and the executive chef Kaley were most accommodating. You can't go wrong staying here.
