Carole and Ken spare no detail in creating an idyllic, decadent bed and breakfast experience. We felt we stepped back in time staying at this restored home just off of the historic Fitzwilliam colonial commons, carefully appointed with curios, antiques and artwork in every quaint room. Clean, romantic and cozy, every room has its own charm, and they have tasteful... More

We had two wonderful days with these intelligent, welcoming and generous individuals. Carole has done so ,any interesting things. And what a great cook!!! Breakfasts were healthful, varied, fresh and delicious, with freshly baked pastry, hot egg dish and fruit. The bed was comfortable (Blue Room) and there was a feather pillow! The shower in this room was rather small... More

Thanks so much for the kind comments you gave us. We enjoyed visiting with you both! We re sorry to hear that you thought the windows did not open! Each window in the Blue Room opens, but there is a button on the antique windows that you need to hold down to push up the window. It is our fault... More

I would highly recommend this B&B. The innkeepers are so nice and knowledgeable. The rooms are beautifull. The warm brownies at night are so yummy and the breakfast, OMG so good. I will definitely go again.

We had wonderful home made full breakfasts and a charming home filled with antiques. Our hosts knew the area well and were able to give me updates in the area I called home for my school years. The gardens are beautiful and the location is quiet and convenient to the entire Monadnock Region. Since there are only 3 well appointed... More

Carole and Ken went out of their way to make us feel at home in their house which is about two hundred years old. You can either eat breakfast at the main table indoors, or else on the back porch where you can watch birds, squirrels, and chipmunks taking their turns feeding in the garden. Some of their food is... More

In traveling all over NH, my wife and I ran the gambit of price and value regarding the available B&B selection. This place set the high bar. Everything was just about perfect, the host had taken care on all the necessary amenities while leaving the rustic appeal of their house unmolested. The personalities of the hosts was also perfectly in... More

My husband and I planned a week-long stay in the Monadnock area as a vacation-anniversary-househunting trip. Not wanting to schlep all the way from Nashua which had the basic chain motels, or head there from Keene, which is, well, too collegy for us, we opted for a B&B. To be honest, I did not check tripadvisor ahead of time. I... More

Stayed for just one night en route from Manhattan to the White Mountains, but we wish we could have stayed more. The owners were very hospitable and helped us with advice on where to eat dinner, provided us with maps and guide books to look at. The bedroom was lovely and large with antique fittings and a raised platform bed.... More
