The Buttonwood Inn certainly exceeded our expectations as our first B&B experience. Paula's cooking and baking was amazing, and the entire Inn was so welcoming and cozy. Bill was enthusiastic about giving us recommendations for trails in the area, local restaurants for dinner, and things to do in town. We loved our peaceful, cozy room, and we are already making...

We stayed at the Buttonwood Inn for three nights as part of our 23 night US road trip. It was the first time we had stayed in a traditional New England B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Bill and Paula were very welcoming, and we really did enjoy Paula’s afternoon baked treats and delicious breakfasts. Bill was very helpful... More

We loved our stay at this beautiful B&B, set at the end of a long drive in a quiet woodland setting. The house itself is huge & interesting & we were given a Cooks Tour of it when we arrived! Bill was passionate about his B&B & our welcome couldn't have been nicer! Paula, a trained chef, made us delish... More

We visited a few days ago beautiful quiet woodland setting and the property was an attractive historic building. Bill and Paula were welcoming and Paula's cakes were very good. I also agree that the decor was a little tired however and there were some disappointments. The evenings were quite chilly and the fire was not lit. Our bedroom was not... More

Thank you for your review and we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We were disappointed that you had to leave by 6:00 the next morning and would miss breakfast. The first morning you had our sweet breakfast. You both told us how delicious it was and that the breakfast sausage patty was particularly enjoyable. When... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Buttonwood Inn. We could not have asked for warmer hosts or more comfortable accommodations. In addition, the breakfasts were awesome! The Inn is nicely situated away from busy North Conway, but very accessible to what the city offers as well as natural spots like Cathedral Ledge and even Mount Washington. We... More

The Buttonwood Inn is truly one of the best B&B's in New England, as well as the country. The owners, Bill and Paula, are both gracious and talented. Bill knows the area very well and can direct visitors to all sorts of activities in the area, where there's truly something for everyone. Paula is an excellent chef and baker. Her... More

The Buttonwood Inn is everything an inn should be. I found the inn and the owners to be warm and welcoming. The inn is very quaint and feels like home. I especially enjoyed using the common areas (living areas) with the welcoming fireplace, current reading material, and DVDs available if one is interested. It is a very quiet location a... More

After seeing so many 5* ratings on this site we had high hopes but had mixed feelings on the experience. Location: A little out of North Conway up a hill so not really walkable but conversely only a short drive from local restaurants and attractions. Very quiet location. Hosting: Made welcome on arrival and had a short tour of facilities... More

The inn is located perhaps 2 miles out of town on a hill in a nice rural setting. We stayed there for 3 nights and had a great time. One of the best features is the common areas. It has large, well-kept grounds and 2 inside common rooms for the guests as well as a pool, a hot tub, and... More
