My husband and I were on our way home to western NY from a week's camping trip in Maine, and decided to split the trip into two days on the way home, staying at the Tartan Fox for fun. Our first visit to a B and B together, but we would definitely stay again. It was a super place. Room... More

Staying at the Tartan Fox is like staying at your Grandma's house - everything may not be new or in perfect condition, but the atomosphere is filled with friendliness and a welcoming spirit. Everything is comfortable and we had a wonderful stay. But clearly, what sets the Tartan Fox apart is Mike, the Inn Keeper, with his friendly conversation and... More

Heidi. So glad you enjoyed our 1832 Manor home, with it's antiques and unique beautiful woodwork. Mostly though Im abashed at your praise of our breakfasts. So very kind of you to leave such a glowing review. We do LOVE to cook, and it's nice to see our efforts were so very much appreciated. Hope to see you again!! More

Spent three nights. We stayed in the Manor Room which was bright, spacious, and had a comfortable queen bed. Loved the room, except our only minor inconvenience was no bedside lamps as we like to read at bedtime. Mike, the owner, was very friendly and accommodating. We had many wonderful conversations. Breakfasts were very good, especially the Eggs Benedict.

Chris. So glad you loved the Manor room. We will act on your suggestion and get a lamp next to the bed so folks can read in bed! Great suggestion. Look forward to your next visit. More

We were looking for a place to relax between our Grandson's Lacrosse events in Keene. The Inn of the Tartan Fox proved to be ideal. Neat, clean and relaxing. Mike served a terrific breakfast on Father's Day and sent us off for a great second day of LAX in this beautiful part of NH. Definitely will return should the opportunity... More

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.

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!
