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

We enjoyed a one night stay in room #10, a large and very comfortable room. The room is nicely appointed and spotless clean. The bed was firm and comfortable. The area is very quiet and peaceful. We are on a mission to stay in every room in the Inn. Every one of the ten rooms is different and likewise clean... More

If you're traveling to N. Conway, absolutely treat yourself to a stay at the Buttonwood Inn. Off the beaten path in a quiet, lovely, tranquil spot, the Buttonwood has been our inn of choice for several years now. The inn is quintessential "New England;" the rooms are beautifully appointed, cozy and extremely comfortable (great linens, comfy beds, very! clean); and... More

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
