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

We generally prefer inns and B&Bs over hotels, but the first visit to any inn or B&B can be hit or miss. In this case, we hit it out of the park! The two most important criteria for us are a pleasant welcome when we walk in and a clean room...by far the clean room is the most important. Inn... More

No need to "send out the hounds"! Innkeeper Mike has set himself a standard, and he BELIEVES in it. You will be made to feel special, breakfast will be an experience NOT to be forgotten, and Mike is a very astute conversationalist. The Fox is open year-around. Hiking, golf, bicycling, dropping the boy at college, skiing, checking the foliage, coming... More

Drove up to NH for 3 days with my husband and was happy we found the Tartan Fox on line. I did my usual reviewing and have to say that everyone was correct about it being clean, cozy and a wonderful stay with gourmet breakfast to boot!! Mike and Liza were so helpful and made us feel right at home.... More

My husband, daughter and myself had a wonderful stay at the Tartan Fox for 3 days. The owners are charming and Mike makes a gourmet breakfast that is so delicious that you never want to go home. Can't wait to come back.

While one might not be impressed by the exterior of this inn, once you get inside, you will change your mind. It is a nice place. On the first floor is the dining area and a large comfortable living room with a big fireplace. Very relaxing place to read or enjoy a board game. Our room was on the second... More

My boyfriend and I were in need of a celebratory, relaxing weekend away so booked a weekend at the Tartan Fox. We were very happy with the accommodations, breakfasts, and hospitality by Mike himself. Not having done too much planning ahead, Mike gave us a variety of recommendations for our daily adventures. We took advantage of the proximity to Monadnock... More

Quite BB Close to downtown shops Comfortable bed:) Very relaxed and friendly owner. Great flowers and trees around the house. Nice to have a AC unit in the room. I left to earlier to eat breakfast so no review on that.

My wife and I stayed over a long weekend in July 2014. We stayed in a first floor room, as that suited our needs. The room is quite handicap friendly. There are a few steps entering the Inn which there may be a way to avoid. The rooms were clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding. The hosts were especially... More

Upon driving into the driveway the yard to the bed and breakfast was so refreshing. There were many trees and flowers to enjoy. Inside the Inn was kept very clean and the room was the same. Very impressive with how clean and comfortable. There was a beautiful breeze coming through the windows so it wasn't hot even though it was... More

Although any review that is positive is a joy to read, I personally am always touched by ones from our NH neighbors. Your kind words mean so much to us, as there are so many lovely B&B's in New England, and praise from a neighbor is very special. We look forward to seeing you again! More
