Extremely friendly host and nicely restored/maintained historic inn. The inn is on a busy road, not a quaint neighborhood or even in town, so be prepared for headlights and pretty loud road noise if you have a room at the front of the inn. Odd combination of scones and wine when we arrived in the late afternoon/early evening, though cans of Budweiser were available in a mini-fridge. Cheese and crackers might have been a better match. I wouldn't mention it if it weren't overpowering, but if you love vanilla scented Glade plug-ins everywhere, this could be your place.

Response from KevinS9260, Guest Relations Manager at Federal House Inn
Responded Feb 7, 2020
Hi GNH1964, We appreciate you taking the time to write your 1st review! We are indeed located on a road on the quieter Rummney side of town right on Tenney Mountain where you can ski in the winter time & visit the Polar caves in the summer. We can be found between the Last Chair Brew Pub ( Where they brew a variety of craft beer on site & another Bar & Grill across the street. We understand you might be noise sensitive, light sensitive, and perhaps scent sensitive as well! We are sorry for your sensibilities. We do in fact serve teatime and sometimes pair it with scones or cookies. We find tea & scones to be a civilized pairing. Yes, there is also afternoon wine for folks to partake should they wish it. We apologize we did not have a more perfect match for you! We also have complimentary bottled water, port, and the beer you mentioned. The cans are for folks who wish to take something out to the hot-tub since we do not allow glass for safety-reasons. We are surprised you did not notice the complimentary fresh cut roses or lilies both in your room and in the common areas. We are once again sorry regarding your sensitivities to smell, light, & sound. Thank-you again for your lovely 1st review on Trip Advisor! We appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts on our meticulously restored 200 year old Inn that has been in business for close to 50 years. Thank-you once again.

This is the kind of inn you will remember for a lifetime, not just for its physical comfort and sense of history but for the warm-hearted, gregarious nature of its host, his excellent skill as a breakfast cook, his helpful suggestions for local adventures, his interest in the wellbeing of his guests -- and his sheer humanity. We were as much refreshed by our conversations with him as by any amount of hiking in the nearby White Mountains. This innkeeper is one of a kind -- and so is the inn!

We stayed at the Federal House Inn while managing a music festival over Veterans Day weekend. From the moment we checked in, Kevin made us feel welcome with engaging conversation and a variety of refreshments. It felt like we were staying with a good friend. The best-in-class hospitality in the White Mountains!

We stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Kevin was the best host and welcomed us and brought our luggage upstairs and offered many amenities. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was so helpful with suggestions for our exploring around the area. Kevin is a delight! The rooms were clean and beds comfortable and the Inn location was easy to find and easy access to interesting places to visit.
