The Inn by the Bandstand was booked for us by our travel agents and what a good choice. We were only able to stay one night as it was an overnight stop prior to catching a flight from Boston to Florida, but we were made so welcome by Jaime who made us feel that nothing was too much trouble.

We had the opportunity to stay at this Inn Friday evening and the decorations and attention to details was excellent. We would highly recommend for anyone to stay at this Inn when visiting the area. Breakfast was delicious and the Owner was extremely friendly and caring. All the best Heidi & Gunther Z

Absolutely loved everything about the Inn! Stayed on a Saturday night to experience the Exeter Holiday Weekend with two friends and could not have been happier! The Inn is a beautifully attended to old New England building that the innkeepers have lovingly decorated, restored, and furnished. The common rooms on the first floor and inviting and tastefully arranged. The bedrooms... More

We visited the Inn in October - we were just looking for a short getaway without the kid to get some R&R. We had no particular destination in mind and saw the property on a Groupon and it looked lovely so we booked. We were not disappointed. The Innkeeper, Jamie, was so welcoming and cooked us delicious breakfasts made to... More

The Inn at the Bandstand was nothing short of exceptional -- from the well appointed rooms, the food and especially the attentive and friendly service. Agostinho and Jamie were the perfect host. We would recommend the Inn to all. Mitch and Sally Grimes
