The Inn by the Bandstand offers very pleasant accommodation in a finely appointed historic house and oh so much more. My partner and I visited the Inn for the first time to celebrate our birthdays.Although standard amenities include wonderfully prepared breakfast daily, complimentary port wine in the guest room, coffee/tea service, robes, and more, inn-keeper Jaime went to greater lengths...

My two sons and I had a wonderful stay at this excellent inn. Jaime was an absolutely outstanding hosts and ensured we had every need met.

This was our second visit to The Inn By The Bandstand, but our first visit with the new owners. Our suite on the third floor was beautiful, warm & inviting. We had a lovely view of the village of Exeter & we enjoyed watching the town wake up & start the day. Both Jaime & Agustino were the perfect hosts,... More

We were given this trip as a thank you gift, so had no expectations to start. From the first contact, Jaime worked to ensure we would have the best stay possible. From directing us to places to enjoy on our trip up to Exeter, to the best sites and restaurants in the area, we were able to relax and enjoy... More

My friend and I each took at room for one night at the Inn by the Bandstand, a georgeous Federalist in the center of Exeter NH. The Innkeeper started our wonderful experience by picking us up from our pleasant one hour Downeaster trainride from Boston. Both Jamie and Agostino could not have been more kind and helpful throughout our stay.... More

My husband and 7-month-old daughter stayed here over the weekend and we couldn't be happier. The two innkeepers are super sweet and attentive (without being intrusive - a delicate balance that they executed flawlessly), the inn was beautiful, and the room was immaculate and funky. We stayed in the Somerset Cottage room and enjoyed the working fireplace and cool exposed... More

Stayed at this beautiful place this past weekend 12/28/13- 12/30/13. I didn't want to leave. Jamie and Kim were so nice. They made us feel so comfortable there. This was our first visit to a B&B. The rooms were absolutely beautiful. We were able to stay in 2 different rooms, the Devonshire suite and the Sommerset cottage. My husband and... More

There are enough great properties around the New England area. But I am sure few can boast about such hospitality. We felt totally welcomed by the hosts. They helped us with the luggage, shopping directions for Black Friday etc. The breakfast pancakes were excellent too.
