If you enjoy nature and the peaceful atmosphere of the mountains and forest, The Buttonwood Inn on Mt. Surprise offers that and more while being close to everything. We are situated on more than five secluded acres of field and forests, two miles from the village of North Conway. Our hiking trails on Bartlett Mountain are accessed out our back door where you can follow the myriad of intersecting trails for hours. Within five minutes, the peacefulness of the mountain trail will envelope you. The Buttonwood Inn has been a Select Registry member since 1999. In 2013, The Buttonwood Inn became a member of the Diamond Collection. The Daily Meal named The Buttonwood Inn as one of "The Top 50 US Bed-and-Breakfasts for Food" in May 2013. The Buttonwood Inn has been awarded the Best of New England 2010-11 and Best Food 2009-10. In October 2010, Travel Channel listed The Buttonwood Inn as one of the "Top 10 New England Bed and Breakfasts."

Thank you for your kind review and thank you for returning to stay with us. Paula, as a trained chef, enjoys making vegan and gluten-free dishes and treats, to stretch her "culinary muscle." Bill and I look forward to your next stay with us!

We had a fantastic stay at the Buttonwood Inn for 2 nights in October 2018. We chose the Buttonwood Inn to enjoy the fall foliage in the White Mountains. We have never been to most of New England before. The Buttonwood Inn is in a great location, close to downtown No.Conway

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are happy you had a great experience staying with us. We strive to make our guests feel comfortable and at home, while providing delicious breakfasts and afternoon tea treats. Bill also enjoys helping guests plan their daily itineraries to see all that the Valley has to offer, and, of course, discuss places to eat based on personal cuisine preferences. We hope you return!

My partner, Louis, and I stayed here for a single night Labor Day. We were charmed by the ambience of this place, which is much like the inns we stayed in years ago in the White Mountains, but completely up-to-date, including that rarest of things in the north country, pretty

is it pet friendly
My wife Paula and I have a Golden named Britt we rescued a number of years ago. Although we have always had at least one pet during our 42 years of marriage, the Inn itself does not allow pets in the guestrooms or any of the common rooms.
