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. (Our large room was heated by an attractive gas fireplace and the en suite bathroom had a heated floor!) Our host, Mike, did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and... More

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. Mike throws himself into the provision of a lovely breakfast, and strives to creatively meet any and all dietary needs. I was treated to homemade GF scones, berries in... More

We booked this trip last minute and were very happy that they were able to accommodate us. We stayed Friday and Saturday night in October and were very pleased with the Inn and Mike the Inn Keeper. Our room, the Stewart room was lovely and very spacious. The inn itself was beautiful with a very comfortable atmosphere. The breakfasts were... More

Mike and Karen it was a real joy having you at our Inn. Our Stewart room is always a great favorite, and we are very pleased that you were happy with it. We love that you felt that we were a great 'base of operations" to visit the Monadnock region. We are not a "destination getaway" in of itself, but... More

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.
