My wife and I have been so fortunate to have stayed at The Bridges Inn. We have come to New Hampshire from Adelaide, South Australia, to drop one of our sons off at College, he is now a student at Keene State. This has been an emotional time for us all but to have stayed with the hosts, Susan and... More

We were in the area for an art show which happily was just down the street from this inn. The owner Susan and chef/son David graciously greeted us and made us feel welcome. The Inn is very nicely decorated with many cozy nooks and whimsical touches. The garden out front by the parking area was in full bloom and lovely.... More

I stayed at this B&B in New Hampshire located near Southwestern Vermont this past weekend when showing my Step Mother Vermont. Overall, while it wasn't the absolute best B&B I've stayed in, it was pretty good and I'd recommend it to those traveling to this part of the US. Some things I'd want to point out about this B&B for... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, Conrad. Your narrative was more positive than your numerical ratings. We are glad you found the "overall atmosphere was very good and inviting" and that you liked the breakfast, staff, the old charm of the inn, as well as the nearby covered bridge. We are sorry that the twin beds... More

My wife and I made a reservation to stay at this wonderful Inn, on Halloween. It was a typical rainy Halloween night. Our room was nice and warm and cozy. There are many nice restaurants nearby. Breakfast in the morning was simply great. We were fortunate to meet several new people and had some great conversations with them. If you... More

Our daughter and son-in-law gave us a gift card to Bridges Inn at Whitcomb House Bed and Breakfast. We took advantage of this gift two weekends ago. It was fabulous. The ride was only about 2 hours from Danvers, MA. The B & B is lovely. It is a very old house w/incredible touches on the inside. The owner, Susan,... More

My husband and I hadn't been to New England when snow was on the ground in quite a few years, so we thoroughly enjoyed our recent weekend stay at the Bridges Inn. Although much of the country (including NH) was in the grips of the "polar vortex", we were totally comfy and cozy at the Inn. We stayed in the... More

I always come to New Hampshire in Autumn but this would also make a delightful winter stay as well. Cozy rooms including a sitting room with big windows and very delightful dining room. David makes top-notch homemade breakfasts and it;s so much fun to taste all the jams, jellies and preserves. Everything is served on beautiful china- fresh juice-hot entrees... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bridges Inn midweek for 3 nights this November and had a wonderful time. David is a wonderful host and made our stay both very comfortable and memorable. We stayed in the Coombs Bridge Room. The bed is very comfortable and I felt at home in it right away. The bathroom is private inside... More

Located just down the road from a picturesque covered bridge, Bridges Inn is a large, lovely home run by the best innkeeper ever, Susan. The rooms are lovingly decorated, comfortable and quiet. The breakfasts are delicious and individually made. I would go out of my way... More

The Bridges Inn is a beautiful house, charmingly decorated, with large comfortable rooms. We were there two nights; David made the most delicious and interesting breakfasts each day. He also was very helpful in giving us information and directions. Perfect location to see covered bridges and easy access to Keene. Our cousins stayed here the week before we did so... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quintessential bed & breakfast is lovely with distinctively decorated rooms, tin ceiling, and many antiques. Five guest rooms each with modern, private bathroom and air conditioning; free wireless Internet; and cable TV. Scrumptious, multi-course breakfasts. This historic 1792 building combines the splendor of yesteryear with the amenities of today. We're a stone's throw from Thompson Covered Bridge and near other covered bridges of the Monadnock region, for which the inn is named. Five miles south of Keene, open year-round. ... more   less
