Had a wonderful experience. We only stayed 1 night but it was a nice change from the chain hotels. We were treated by one of the owners (the husband, his wife was away this weekend). He was very pleasant, talked a bit with him about the inn and have us great tips on restaurants and things of interest. The room was very nice, except the shower was a bit small (a regular showerhead would he better fit instead of the waterfall contraption). We slept really well in the very comfortable bed. Next morning we were greated with table service breakfast if croissant and blueberry pancakes with bacon (our choice off that mornings offerings). Very tasty, presently nicely and the husband did great job cooking (I hear it's usually the wife's job) It's a beautiful historic building with a lot of original features.

A group of 6 of us booked a first visit for all of us to New Hampshire for a 4 night stay and the Silver Fountain Inn was one of very few available b&bs at short notice. We soon realised how lucky we were! The building is attractive and in a quiet setting away from Dover centre but just a short walk away. The rooms are impressive and kept immaculately. As for the owners, well what can we say :) the pair of them are just such good fun and a pleasure to have met, and they are also only too eager to please. Jim and Pam, you made our stay so much more than 5 stars allows! The area is not far from so many beauty spots and the walk we made up Mount Major. This is a stunning walk with spectacular views once your legs and lungs recover at the summit. Not a walk for your dear old granny but plenty of families made it. Nearby towns Portsmouth, Portland and so many others are a treasure. For me personally, in the years I've been coming to the States (from England) and touring with my NJ based wife and friends, this was my favourite trip so far and I hope we go back there! One word then to sum up this property, the owners and everything they have done and do - fabulous.

This B & B truly lived up to it's title. Pam and Jim were wonderful hosts, friendly and welcoming. The decor throughout the Inn was a mix f charm and elegance. Great working air conditioning. Our room, on the main floor, was large, clean, comfortable and had a private bath. Breakfast was delicious. The outside grounds were well manicured with rocking chairs placed on the lawn under trees. Thank you Jim and Pam for all your nice touches. Looking forward to our next stay ! Michele Piri-Bungert

Let me first get out of the way my recommendation to stay in the City of Dover. It is centrally located to the Lakes Region, beaches, Maine, and not too far a drive to the mountains. Now to the Silver Fountain Inn. The moment you walk through the door you are transported back in time 150 years. The attention to detail is amazing. From the carefully preserved wallcovering, to the furniture selection, to the smaller items such as dishes and other carefully placed antiques, the atmospheric experience is immersive. Our first floor room followed suit and was not lacking any amenity. For those who imbibe, the room has a choice of wines available. Refrigerator, iron, hair dryer are all there, the presence of which does not affect at all the old world feel of the accommodations. Even with all the wonderful ambience experienced in the public areas and private room, the standout feature of the Silver Fountain Inn is its customer care. When you first encounter Pam and Jim and their staff, you'll know you are in for a great stay where you'll want for nothing. Breakfasts were great and they couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was enjoyable. When visiting Dover again, we will be certain to check availability at Silver Fountain Inn first.
