We were looking for a quiet get away weekend and we found the perfect place here at the inn by the bandstand. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was a delight and we also enjoyed the patio area with its pretty flowers and fireplace. The inn takes you back in history with all its glory.... More

Our children were kind enough to book rooms here for a 40th anniversary weekend and we couldn't have been happier with how things worked out. Probably going to repeat what others have said, but this inn deserves all the kudos. Clean, beautiful, comfortable, great location and great breakfasts, but the kindness of the owners and staff even outshines all that.... More

Very nice B & B. Nicely decorated, clean, well managed, and even better than was expected, The Inn at the Bandstand was a fun place to visit. Located in the center of town, this extremely attractively remodeled historic location was a great recommendation and met and exceeded high expectations. The Innkeeper and Owner, Jaime Lopez, has done a wonderful job... More

One of the most welcoming and high quality B&Bs I've ever stayed at. Everything thought of from wine and cheese in the evening and personally cooked breakfasts to sherry in the room and luxurious sheets and robes. Outstanding and attentive staff/owners who give a personal touch and communication with every single guest. Cannot recommend highly enough.

The Inn at the Bandstand is the best b&b we have ever been to. The entire staff is so genuine. The personal touches threw out our stay were so thoughtful. The B&B is beautiful! Great outdoor space! Oh! And the food! So good! Thank you so much!

Inviting town setting, well appointed decor, brilliant recommendations, and well-planned, unique food service. All this while the talented, hospitable owners were establishing their first season open. As a small business owners we can appreciate such... More

This exceptionally well-thought-out, well-run, beautifully furnished and comfortable boutique inn stands right in the center of one of New Hampshire's most charming old small towns and within easy walking distance of all its main sights (including the famous Academy). I spent a very peaceful three nights and could find no detail overlooked.

Gorgeous antique furnishings and artwork decorate all the rooms, There was so much attention to detail and comforts for the guests. There were even luxurious throws on each of the chairs in the...
