I've been coming here on my repreives from everyday life for a while now. Its a Gem and a real treat to come here. And... they have been refinishing the rooms... Quiet. Victorian. Friendly. Almost home. Great place for creative personalities and those who want a break from techno-"culture".
Decided last minute to head somewhere in NH for a 3 night ski weekend over President's Day. There are 4 of us plus a dog. Everything was booked in all of the usual places near Cannon, Bretton Woods, Attitash, Loon, etc. Looked in mid-NH and stumbled on the Black Swan Inn in Tilton. Located in between Gunstock and Ragged Mountain. They had availability for three nights (Fri, Sat, Sun), accepted dogs and were very reasonably priced. We took a chance and booked the 3 days. WHAT A GREAT PLACE!!! Owners John and Tricia are great!! The breakfasts were great!! The Inn is a beautifully restored Victorian Home. We had 2 beds and a private bath on the second floor with our own stairway. No one else around us. As a matter of fact the Inn had at least 10 other people staying in it and for most of the time we were there we felt we had the place to ourselves. My 2 teenagers (16 & 19) who can be a little high maintenance at times absolutely loved the place. They spent more time in the common areas than in the room. We skied Waterville for 2 days only because Gunstock and Ragged were sold out. I can go on and on about this place. Trying to get a group of families to take over the Inn for a long ski weekend. A couple of great casual restaurants just down the street. We'll definitely be back!! Thanks again John and Tricia!!!…
I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful getaway while I was was transitioning to another town more northern. From top to bottom it was fantastic! The owners and staff are super attentive and served lovely breakfasts. As well as offering yummy snacks. Very clean while being exciting and absolutely gorgeous. I’m very excited to go back sometime. They recommended some very nice activities as well as restaurants and it was nice to see such a beautiful historic piece of the town that has been looked after with such care. As a chef and industry worker I’m confident in saying that this landmark is a must see/stay! I look forward to going back soon!
We stayed there 2 nights in could not have been happier! The historic, well maintained rooms were spacious and authentic to it's era. With a simple ask, the owner was very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was homemade and soo delicious! We will be back soon!!!
The room was for 4 people but very very small and the bathroom toilette broke down during our stay. The carpet was unclean. The breakfast was ok but not many choices specially for the children. There was only one outlet to charge phone, computer etc. Not planning to come back.
