My husband and booked an overnight here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were so pleased with our accommodations! The room was very clean and we loved the style. It was true to the era when the inn was built yet nothing felt old or dingy. The bed was so comfortable and the location was great being in the... More

We received a groupon to The Inn by the Bandstand , and all I can say is my title speaks for itself. There wasn't anything left undone by Jamie and Augustino the owners, who have sooo much to be proud of in such a short amount of time that they have owned this inn.....Everthing from the most delicious breakfast that's...

My husband and I stayed at the inn for two nights with my best friend and her husband. My husband and I were in the Somerset Cottage Suite, and it was perfect. Jamie and the staff were wonderful, breakfasts were hearty and delicious (and both husbands got extra shares which pleased them very much). Every detail was carefully attended to,... More

This inn is very nicely furnished and clean. The suite we stayed in had one of those gas fireplaces with fake wood that seems completely in contrast to the antique furnishings. The fireplace in the back yard has the same fake wood gas fireplace. The problem was the breakfast. We were served a little fresh fruit with eggs Benedict. I... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying 4 nights in the Kennsington Suite at the Inn by the Bandstand. Our stay exceeded our expectations. The inn is meticulously maintained with all of the historic charm you would expect. The room itself was spacious and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed a different breakfast each morning and each day were impressed by how... More

Jamie and Augustino were so gracious we felt as if we were the only guests at the inn. Every staff person went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. While the inn is well appointed the warm atmosphere is truly unique and sets the inn apart from others. We stayed two nights and wish we could have stayed... More

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at the Inn by the Bandstand in July 2014. The Inn is beautiful inside and out and well maintained. Parking is in the rear and accessed through the municipal parking lot. We were greeted by our host Jaime upon our arrival who graciously assisted us with our luggage and showed us to our... More

My husband and I were married in Exeter last Christmas and my sister and her partner, who live just a block away from the Inn, gave us a gift certificate for one night. We have been together for 19 years and have never stayed at a bed and breakfast, figuring that, as a gay couple we might be uncomfortable being... More

My husband and I stayed for only 2 nights. However if we had more time we most definitely would have stayed longer. Each suite is decorated to its own unique standard. The room was spectacular and the service phenomenal! Breakfast was beyond delicious and the fruits were fresh from a nearby organic market. The local shops were interesting and intriguing... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try out the Inn by the Bandstand when we found a Groupon for a two night stay, bottle of wine, and bike rental. The Windsor Suite was immaculate with a beautiful, comfy king size bed and luxurious jacuzzi tub. The Inn has the perfect mixture of antique furnishings and modern conveniences, including a fully-stocked... More
