“My Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when I'm in NH! Aside from the very nourishing breakfasts, including Sandi's awesome scones and Fred's wonderful fruit concoctions, I always feel at home there and am usually reluctant to leave and head back to the 'real world.' Sandi and Fred are not just hosts of a B&B, they have become dear friends.

Thank you for your review. We love it when guests become regular visitors such that they actually do become friends. We always look forward to re-establishing the things that have happened in everyone's life during the time between visits. May we continue our pleasant contacts for the years to come.

This B&B is superb. The rooms are spacious yet cozy. Very beautifully decorated. Hosts Sandy and Fred are so friendly after breakfast and few hours conversation it felt like their family. Scones and cookies are homemade by Sandy and so delicious my boys couldn't have enough. We asked for place to buy some local maple syrup but weren't able to wait until afternoon for the market to reopen, since we had to head back home ( we were passing through on way from Quebec) so Fred handed us jag from their pantry. Sweetest gesture. We would definitely recommend this place for anyone who is just staying for one night or going for week vacation.

What a wonderful B&B. From the minute we walked in, we were welcomed by Sandi and made to feel at home. We slept in missed our breakfast call but Sandi was more than accommodating and saved us breakfast, so we did not leave hungry. Wonderful experience, would stay again!

Absolutely love this b&b and Fred and Sandy the owners made me feel so at home. Make sure you try the scones and homemade breakfast items. Every single room is furnished in colonial furniture. There is do much history in the b&b.

This Inn was great! Sandi and Fred are wonderful hosts. I would recommend this place to any friends and family. Breakfast and the scones (they really do live up to the reviews) were really good, they even cater to making gluten-free scones for us. Which was a great treat!

Room Tip: The top floor, has the best rooms and great rooms.

I loved this place. I was looking for a relaxing night away and the inn was perfect. Sandi and Fred were so nice and welcoming. When I arrived, Sandi asked what I wanted for breakfast and I asked for those scones I heard about from the reviews and she was so happy to make them, and they lived up to the hype! I wasn't expecting to talk to Sandi and Fred as much because I was looking for time alone, but they were so great that I ended up spending over an hour at breakfast just enjoying hearing their stories! They even loved experimenting with breakfast drinks that made for great memories. Overall, the inn was beautiful, spacious, and cozy. I highly recommend this inn to anyone whether it's for a night or weekend or weeks. You will not be disappointed.

Sandi and Fred are fabulous hosts in a warm and inviting B&B. This was our first visit and we hope we have many more. We felt like we were 'home', with all the amenities. Large, comfortable and beautifullly appointed rooms (we stayed in the Franklin Room), the dining room was available with snacks and drinks through out the day. We loved lingering over the delicious breakfast and getting to know Sandi and Fred and learning the history of the Inn. Thank you!

Room Tip: Front rooms are close to the street with a small amount of noise from cars. Did not bother us, but c...

Thank you for your kind review! We thoroughly enjoyed getting acquainted with you. It was a very pleasant interlude during a slow time at the inn and we look forward to seeing you again some time.
It was unfortunate that you had to leave so early for your flight - we missed having breakfast with you that day.
