We were three couples meeting up for a relaxing New Years Eve getaway. We have been to the Tartan Fox several times for local events and just to meet up with friends. We stayed in the Manor room this time. The rooms are comfortable, the bathroom floor is heated, there is cable TV and free wifi. The fireplace in the... More

This was my first stay at a b&b and I can't wait to come back! From the warm welcome at our arrival to the farewell at the end I could not have been more pleased. Most memorable was Enjoying the evening by the fire in the living room with the view of the fresh snow and the amazing breakfast with... More

It was so wonderful having you! Nothing more satisfying than creating a new B&B aficionado. Perhaps you will visit in the summer/fall and see what the other seasons have to offer in our beautiful Monadnock region. More

The Tartan Fox Inn was wonderful. Our room was immaculately clean, spacious, sunny and beautifully decorated with a modern marble bathroom, completed with heated floors. Mike is a charming innkeeper, welcoming us warmly to his inn and taking every care to ensure that our stay was flawless. The breakfasts were amazing! We have stayed at numerous bed and breakfast inns... More

We found The Tartan Fox from a google search and picked it after reading the reviews here. My husband had class at Antioch University New England and I was tagging along and wanted to stay someplace other than a traditional hotel. We chose right. The home is beautiful and welcoming. The owner, Mike, is friendly, outgoing, and makes you feel... More

So blessed to have happened upon your little inn online as we were driving to Keene! We felt so welcomed with your personal welcome note and I knew for sure we'd found the perfect B& B when I saw we were to "follow the string" to our room! How fun! When we returned after dinner in town, we were greeted... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three days at the Inn of the Tartan Fox during the prime weekend for looking at the beautiful New England fall foliage. Mike is doing a great job with updating the Inn exterior, and the breakfasts were "to die for"! We went out in the mornings with full bellies and really did not need lunch until... More

The Tartan Fox Inn is a very comfortable, quiet and cozy B&B in the rural/suburban village of Swanzey, just a short drive from the charming town center of Keene.

I usually look for either a cabin to rent or a B&B. This trip, I was looking forward to the luxury of having someone else cook for at least one meal.

The Inn of the Tartan Fox was quite lovely. The room and the en suite bathroom were clean and as depicted in the photographs. Mike, the innkeeper, is very personable and attentive. His gourmet breakfast was worth waiting for (we are early risers and depart early). The inn is small, but the rooms are spacious. The "parlor" is very gracious... More
