We visited this Inn while in town visiting family. They were very welcoming, the Inn itself was impeccable. They were very accommodating to GF sensitivities, and made our stay an amazing one.

What a fabulous place to stay. The owner and staff are so nice, just like the best part of your family. My wife and I stayed here for three days and we could have stayed much longer. The Colony House is about two short blocks from the center square of the most charming New England town of Keene, very clean,... More

Viewed all the rooms in person and I would recommend this one first. Very comfortable bed with a nice bathroom . All rooms located on second floor which requires navigating narrow staircase....

We wanted to immerse ourselves in Keene and get the 'vibe' of the area. The Colony House was the ideal base for our adventure. The gracious house is lovingly maintained, the guest rooms are comfortable and bright, the continental breakfast was extensive and the hospitality accorded by Joslin and Rae was warm and personable.

Comfortable but elegant! Far and away one of the loveliest B & B's I've had the pleasure of visiting. No details left to chance. This is a beautiful home restored in all it's glory. Bedrooms, living room, dining room right down to the butler's pantry are well appointed and welcoming. The food and all services were just perfect. The hostess... More

After chatty email conversations, I was expecting Joslin, the owner, to be personable and friendly, and we were definitely not disappointed! A charming hostess, who made us feel very welcome in her home. She is ably assisted by her delightful niece - between them, they are a mine of information about the area (the family has lived locally for centuries... More

Antiquated. Delightfully 'dotty' owner. Excellent, mostly home made, breakfast. No lift. Dated accommodation. Overpriced. Belongs to the family of the first Mayor of Keene, known as local historic building. Characterful.

We had a very pleasant, long weekend stay at Colony House, and I would return in an instant if I needed to spend time in the Keene, NH area. Everything from the room to the service to the food was wonderful and a good value. The word impeccable easily comes to mind.
