We would have given six stars if we could have! Love this place. Everything about it is perfect, down to the last detail. Joslin, the owner, couldn't be kinder or more welcoming. The bedrooms and other rooms in the Colony House are beautiful and comfortable. Everything is super high-quality and designed with impeccable taste. The breakfast is just perfect. A... More

A beautifully modernized heritage house, furnished in a comfortable and non-fussy style. (No dusty tchotkes here !) The owner Joslin and the manager, her niece Lisa, enjoy introducing visitors to local attractions. The bedroom and bathroom are as clean and comfortable as one could wish. Reservations and check-in went smoothly. High quality breakfast. Top marks all round.

I had a performance in Keene New Hampshire. A Chautauqua Event sponsored by the Keene Public Library. They booked my lodging at the Colony House. Josline the Proprietor upon arrival was outside. She greeted me, "you must be Gwendolyn", with true warmth. That was the beginning of BEYOND HOSPITALITY. Gave a tour of the residence, showed us to our rooms... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. The house is beautiful and breakfast was delicious. It was our first trip to Keene, and we didn't know much about the area. Joslin and Lisa made several suggestions about things to do in the area, and we had a fantastic time. It's clear that they both love what they do,... More

My stay here was quite lovely. The room was very comfortable and the location can't be beat. I would certainly stay there again while in Keene. It was easy to walk downtown or to the campus of Keene State.

This B&B has been lovingly and stylishly restored with the history of the home in mind. Jocelyn, the owner, is friendly, interesting and accommodating. Her personal style is reflected throughout the home. I appreciate all of the fine detail and architectural interest of the home. This B&B has a great location just a short stroll from the main square in... More

Lisa and Joslin were fantastic hosts. They are incredibly warm and accommodating. They are really meticulous and focus on even the smallest of details - from snacks in the fridge, recommendations for town, and keeping track of your breakfast preferences.

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend, 2 night stay at the Colony House. It's located just two blocks walk from the main street in downtown Keene, where there are plenty of restaurants and stores. The price included a breakfast that was very nicely prepared and laid out. The room, though up a steep stairway, was very comfortable with... More

The Colony House is everything we had hoped for in a B&B and more. The house is lovely and beautifully restored. We were there for a family visit/reunion and took over all five rooms. Each room was very comfortable and the beds excellent. The linens and towels were top notch. Lisa and Joslyn were so welcoming and could not do... More

Joslin and Lisa did a great job. We planned a group getaway for eight occupying four rooms. A friendly greeting as usual! Hospitality at its finest. The rooms were clean and spacious, the beds ultra comfortable, the shower pressure and heat were of spa quality. The breakfast delicious ~ fresh fruit, breads, cereals, yogurts/granola and a fancy plate of thin... More
