My husband and I went for a 2 night get-away to NH using an on-line voucher for the Glen Oaks Inn. Let me start by saying that if you are not into the "bed and breakfast" experience, this is not the place for you. If, however, you want a quiet area, a homey feel, and enjoy meeting and speaking with the owners, this is a nice B&B experience.
I very much enjoyed meeting Mitch and Linda. They were available in the mornings (for breakfast and then afterwards) and in the evening to answer questions on the area, provide advice on where to eat, and suggestions on what to do in the White Mountains. Their restaurant suggestions for dinner were greatly appreciated (we enjoyed both places they mentioned). Because of a change of plans, we had to request an earlier breakfast time for our second morning - Mitch was extremely accommodating and we did not have any trouble switching at all. I truly enjoyed our conversations with them; it is wonderful to speak with people who enjoy what they are doing for a living and love the area they live in.
The area where the Inn is located is very quiet. It is about 1 1/2 miles from Rt 16 which runs through N. Conway in one direction and up to Wildcat and Mt. Washington in the other. It is also close to Rt. 302 through Crawford Notch which has a lot of great hiking.
The Inn itself has a pool, a flat screen TV in one of the downstairs sitting rooms, and a lovely enclosed and screened front porch area that is perfect for reading or playing board games on a summer evening, (the Inn has board games for guest use). Our room was on the third floor and was small, but serviceable. It had a small, private bathroom with no bathtub, only a very small shower stall. We found the room very clean, and it had air conditioning. It also had an excellent ceiling fan above the bed that circulated the air in the room if you wanted to keep the windows open. Our room did have a small television mounted in the corner and visible from the bed - if you are used to large-screened tv's and enjoy watching tv in your room, this would have been a disappointment. We tend to spend very little time in our room on vacations in NH, so this was not an issue for us. The inn-keepers encouraged us to use the porch and common rooms as part of our living space, and had coffee and tea available all day and evening in the breakfast room.
We definitely enjoyed the breakfast at the Inn. The choice of one savory dish and one sweet dish is offered each day. I did notice that some guests substituted fruit for the breakfast meat - I would suggest speaking directly to the owners about your food requirements prior to your stay so that they can be prepared to accomodate you. We were also offered a baked good prior to our hot breakfast - I normally do not eat "goodies" but Linda's warm, white chocolate, raspberry scone was amazing!! It got raves throughout the room!!
Overall, we had a very nice time at the Inn, and I hope that we will visit again in the future.
