“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a rustic but very comfortable inn, kind of funky. Our room was comfortable. The restaurant was very good. We only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed longer. Overall, a fun place to stay and a very good value.

i stayed at the common man inn in plymouth for one night in october, and had a delightful experience. the decor is wonderful -- they've refurbished a mill of some kind and incorporated a lot of the old rooms into the inn in the form of a wonderful quirky bar and lounge area, a great cozy lobby with a fire, coffee 24/7 in a little bake shop, which also sells brekkers the next morning, and they've added on perfectly country-gorgeous meeting rooms onto the property. the hotel rooms are typical in size, but with a lovely country-woods feeling to them, lots of natural wood, and artwork. it was like a spa in the forest, i loved it! i felt very at home, and absolutely adequately pampered here, though i didn't partake of any of the spa services. i was there for an awards banquet, and the food was *delish*! i recommend it highly, and i'd def go back for a romantic getaway, a girls getaway, or a personal spa getaway :)

We have been to several Common Man restraurants and so were not surprised by the quality of the food - excellent. It was the Inn that took us by surprise. What a gem! This builiding is a renovated mill and has retained some of the old characteristics. It has been rebuilt with a rustic log cabin feel. The rooms are tucked into varous places along the winding halls. The halls are decorated with pictures taken around the time that the mill would have been in full swing. It is a real treat to walk through the inn, look at the pictures, and to see the antiques as you walk around. - The rooms are generous and well maintained. The pool area has a small pool and 2 whirlpools - one with a stone waterfall - not to be missed. This is one of my favorite hotels by far!

While the Inn was renovated in 2002; the owner worked with local historians to locate and display the photographs throughout the Inn. They transform you back in time.
Thank you for your kind review and we look forward to seeing you at the Inn in the near futrue!

My husband and I were looking for a night away before a new baby arrived. Common Man was perfect. We got a great - spacious - room with a fireplace. The spa was wonderfull - facial and massage - and the pool area was perfect. We had a fantasic - and very affordable - dinner at the affiliated Italian Farmhouse. Breakfast in the Cafe was a great way to start the morning. We will be back, hopefully for more than one night.

Another note - my husband left his hat in our room - just a few days upon returning they had sent it along. Great service.

The Inn is unique--a huge converted old building with a spa, restaurant, gift shop... and the big rooms worlds to themselves. This was a very quick work trip and we didn't sample much of what it's like to be there, but I wanted to say particularly how impressed both my husband and I were with the staff, from check in right through past our departure. He needed a quiet place to work early in the morning, and said the person at the front desk went above and beyond to set him up well. I left something behind, called a few hours later, and was assured it would be on its way to me the next day.

It just seems a place that everyone is happy to be--and about as far from a corporate hotel experience as is possible.

We stopped at the Common Man for a mid afternoon snack and drink and wound up spending the night; great decision. Very pleasant staff, clean rooms, good value- definitely worth a return trip when back in the area.

A trip to the Commonman Inn is always a great idea. Coupled with a chance to do a little leaf peeping and a visit to the Fryeburg Fair, a great idea became a chance to relax and rewind. The Inn was hopping with visitors excited to see some good weather. A visit on Thursday to Saturday works best for us to avoid the traffic heading north from the Boston area. A new room for us this trip, it was a loft. The amount of space exceeded our expectations and the phone call from the front desk to be sure all was satisfactory was appreciated. A family of 4 or 5 would fit very comfortably into the loft space, as would two couples sharing the rate. Dined at Fosters on Thursday evening after a soak in the hot tub and pool. Very comfortable, food was outstanding and drinks were ice cold. Up early Friday and off to the fair via the Kangamangus Highway, to check out the sites. Well worth the time and effort. Dinner Friday at the Italian Farm House, a short drive to listen to the poor souls who had to drive north 3-4 hours in traffic. Love being there ahead of all the traffic and watching people begin to relax with great food surrounded by a staff that knows how to make the trip worth it. Again excellent food, drink and service. A night cap back at Fosters and a sound sleep after a lond day. Saturday morning came too early but the drive home was completed by breakfast at the Tilt'n Diner, keeping everything in the "commonman" family. Thanks for everything, see you again very soon

Room Tip: Loft rooms are great for families. Easily accomodates 5 people (or two couples) with extra bathroom...

Fall is so beautiful in New Hampshire; especially in the White Mountains Region, thank you for including the Inn & Spa in your leaf peeping trip.
And of course for visiting our other locations throughout the state, what a fan, thank you!
We look forward to your return trip.
