The Inn by the Bandstand is impeccable. We have never stayed at an inn that paid so much attention to its décor and hospitality as we did with this place. The inn sits on a corner across from an actual bandstand in the center of town. Exeter is a small town with colonial charm. The inn was built in the... More

What a lovely stay in an historic section of downtown Exeter NH. Innkeeper extraordinaire, Jamie, truly enjoys people and sharing the love of his inn with you as he takes your bags and shows you the property on the way to your elegantly appointed room. Lakeheath Lodge has fabulous downtown views (three sides), an en suite bathroom, gas fireplace, dresser,... More

This inn is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Beautifully renovated with kind owners who have thought of every amenity one would ever need. Great homemade breakfast everyday. The rooms are gorgeous. Zelda the inn dog is adorable. I enjoyed my birthday weekend soo much here. I highly recommend staying here when in New Hampshire!

This beautiful, historic B&B is outstanding. When you approach the Inn it is such a magnificent building in the center of Exeter. Check-in was fantastic with the innkeeper, Jamie, offering an early check-in and a beautiful up-grade. You can tell he loves what he is doing and is great at introducing you to the Inn. He has taken the time... More

My husband and I are from Michigan and had not been to New Hampshire, so on a recent trip to Boston we planned a stay in NH. We booked Inn by the Bandstand- bed & breakfast without knowing anything about it. Wow! What a wonderful surprise... this was a wonderful place to stay for 4 nights. Augustino and Jami were... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this exquisite Bed and Breakfast. I loved the historic feel of the town with its true New England charm. The staff were helpful in planning our stay, and were very friendly and courteous. Makes for a romantic get away. I plan on coming back and maybe purchasing a stay for friends... More

This is by far the nicest bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at Augustino as the most gracious host (Jamie was on holidays) and Kimmy was a fabulous backup and great cook . Breakfast both days was out of this world. One day we had waffles with fruit the next morning Eggs Benedict both with a professional presentation. They... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn By the Bandstand this past weekend and it was truly a great experience. We originally took a long weekend to go up to NH to take a check out the area because we were thinking of possibly moving there in the future - we found a Groupon a few months ago for... More

Review for the Inn at the Bandstand We just left the Inn at the Bandstand and had a memorable experience there. The proprietor, Jamie, does a wonderful job setting the stage for a quaint New England bed and breakfast. His attention to detail is noticeable from the moment you walk in. The music, local artwork on the walls, orchids and... More

They do things the way all places should! Very friendly staff, great breakfast and cozy rooms all make this a place I will return to when I am staying in the area! Very nice view of the bandstand and downtown.
