Me and my husband absolutely loved our stay at the Buttonwood Inn on Mount Surprise. Paula and Bill are the most amazing and nice people you can ever meet. They made us feel like we are home away from home. They gave us very helpful tips on where to go and what to do in the area. Paula's breakfasts were... More

Our stay at the Buttonwood was great in so many ways. The location is convenient to North Conway and situated in a beautiful, private, wooded area. We love to hike and the Buttonwood was half a mile from a great hike up Mt. Kearsarge with very few people... not to mention all the countless hikes in the White Mountain National... More

We stayed at the Buttonwood Inn with another couple for 2 nights and we each had rooms with a private bath that was inviting and very comfortable. Breakfast was served each morning and Paula's scones were excellent! Bill was a gracious host! The yard was beautiful and the pool an added bonus. There is two trails in their backyard you... More

Bill and Paula run a beautiful place, a real home from home on our trip to the region. Can't recommend Buttonwood highly enough and we'd love to come back. Nearby we drove the auto road up Mount Washington, which is spectacular, and enjoyed plenty of shopping in North Conway too.

Bill and Paula have got it spot on. They are incredibly friendly, thoughtful and helpful, but equally know when to give you space to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the excellent facilities at the Buttonwood. We loved Paula's breakfasts, Bill's humour, and both of their attention to detail in everything they do. We only wish the Buttonwood wasn't thousands of... More

We've been back to the Buttonwood a number of times and for good reason. It feels like coming home, only better. Bill and Paula do such a wonderful job of making you comfortable and relaxed so much that you don't want to leave. The breakfast and treats are always delicious but it's the little things that make your visit so... More

Went up to North Conway with the wife and kid for a long weekend. Was looking for a B&B a little off the beaten path and Buttonwood Inn turned out to be the perfect fit. We were there for a few nights (stayed in room 5) and it was a great mix of people (young families, couples, etc). Our son... More

The Buttonwood Inn has been such a lovely stay. The bed rooms are quaint and the dining room and lounge settings are picturesque. Paula owner/chef has such an elegant style and can create delicious gluten free eats. Bill owner has been superb.

I confess; we are repeat visitors to the Buttonwood. And why not? Convenient to all the White Mountain locations, super comfortable, nice folks (both innkeepers and guests), outstanding breakfasts, and reasonable rates. This past weekend, we hiked two 4,000 footers (Buttonwood accommodated us with a "hiker's breakfast" so we could get an early start), I cycled to Crawford Notch and... More

The location and the house are very nice and clean but more than that, the hosts Bill and Paula are generous and always ready to help. The foods are delicious and vary every day. I appreciate the tea time with cookies or cup cakes depending on Paula'a inspiration. Always a nice surprise! At night Paul has made us a nice... More
