My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this year with a 2 night stay at the Buttonwood Inn in North Conway, NH. This was our first stay at the inn and our experience was wonderful, absolutely beyond our expectations. Bill and Paula were warm and friendly, yet professional. They made us feel right at home and were extremely accommodating.... More

This was our first non-winter visit to the Buttonwood. We attended an informative wellness workshop which was hosted by the inn As part of the package, Paula created a delicious healthy lunch for the attendees utilizing many of the heathy foods discussed in the workshop. The result was a very tasty & nutritious meal. Since we had only previously been... More

On the face of it this is a great place. The setting is beautiful and quiet, the inn quaint, sympathetically decorated (although I can see why some reviewers feel it is dated) and Bill the owner helpful. We were on our honeymoon and the inn was almost empty while we were there and Bill kindly upgraded us to Room 10... More

We are happy that you enjoyed most aspects of our inn, but were surprised to read that you did not feel welcome and thought we conversed more with the other guests. You sent us a thank you email from England after we emailed you the picture and recipe you requested. In the email you stated you had a wonderful time.... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Buttonwood Inn Memorial Day weekend. What I loved most was how close it is to downtown North Conway yet it was also tucked away in a tranquil setting. Bill and Paula were friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious and we took advantage of the hot tub, yard games, and nature trails around the... More

My fiancé and I have stayed with Bill and Paula at their lovely inn twice now. We were there this past summer to go hiking and again in the winter for a ski weekend. North Conway is a fun place all year round with lots to do, and we have loved our stays at the Buttonwood Inn for many reasons.... More

I loved my stay at the Buttonwood Inn. It is a 2-3 minute drive from the center of North Conway, which has cute little shops and restaurants. We were greeted very kindly and with hospitality, and were given a tour of our room. It was very home-like and the grounds were exceptionally taken care of. Beautiful views of mountains in... More

The Buttonwood Inn is our favorite place to go for a relaxing stay in the White Mountains. Tucked away in the woods, yet not far from all the activities in the area, the Buttonwood Inn is the only place my wife and I think about when it is time for a weekend getaway. The best breakfasts you can imagine await... More

We stayed for two nights for Valentines day, and had a wonderful stay. The location is great (it is in North Conway, so convenient to stores/restaurants), but is off the main drag in town, so offers a very quiet area to enjoy. Breakfast was great, and they have individual tables, to offer a bit more privacy compared to other B... More
