We stayed in the Elder Eldad's room on Thanksgiving night. The room might have been a tad bit small for a king size bed but it was spotless clean, very comfortable bed and cute antique decor. The batroom was very tiny especially the shower but very clean. I suggest changing the shower faucets as water either comes too hot or... More

Our family of 5 stayed in the John Adams Suite and it was perfect. The kids loved the beds in the eaves and the entire space was very private. The owners were very friendly, breakfasts varied and filling. There is a lot of history in this Inn. Vannevar Bush, one of the creators of the atomic bomb, once stayed here,... More

The owners Ruth and Jim, really have a knack for making you feel welcome, my family stayed there over Labor day weekend and had a very good experience. The Inn is near the town of Jaffrey and the Monadnock region with plenty to do , good local restaurants, especially in Peterborough.

My boyfriend and I rented the "Colonel Prescott Room" for a weekend stay for a friend's wedding. The room is large and decorated in red in a country-wealthy Colonial style. All the fixtures are modern. The surroundings are very quiet; it was a pleasant escape from city noise. Cell phone reception and the hotel wireless are spotty, but the host... More

On the positive side, the inn's exterior as well as the rooms are very attractively decorated. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast they provide is very hearty. However, for the amount charged, we definitely felt the amenities were lacking. Most importantly, the bedding (mattress and pillows) were very uncomfortable. Also, there was no daily maid service...
