My husband and I stayed here after our small wedding ceremony and it was absolutely perfect! I truly cannot say enough good things about our stay there. We were so warmly welcomed and they helped us celebrate our special day. The breakfast was by far the best breakfast I have had in a long time (made with fresh herbs from their garden!), the bed and robs were so comfortable. The attention to detail in every aspect of the hotel and decor was unparalleled. The owners had that perfect hosting mix of knowing when to give us space and when to engage us in interesting conversation. This place is truly exceptional! I cannot wait to return and I encourage everyone to go and experience this top tier B+B!

Great hosts. Superb breakfast. The most beautifully done up inn I’ve ever been to. The owners have thought through every little thing a guest needs. Better than any 5 star hotel in America. The lady who makes breakfast has the most magical touch. She makes the most perfect eggs, avocado toast and muesli. Every dish is so perfect. And there’s freshly squeezed orange juice. Must visit!!

Stayed in the cozy Squamscott Suite. The wood beam ceilings and wooden floors, along with a stunning brick, gas fireplace (over 100 years old) made the ambiance quite inviting. The owners and staff are top notch, as well the Otis restaurant attached to the Inn. Don’t hesitate to stay here. You can feel the history of the Inn and Bandstand outside the front door!

Jaime and is superb staff provided 5-star + experience for our trip to New Hampshire. The breakfast: granola—yum! The staff was first class! Exquisite rooms, all the touches: cherry, champagne and a comfy bed made our stay memorable. Jaime recognized our military service—what an honor. The Inn has a beautiful garden and award winning chef ! Stay here...you are treated like family!
