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.

Response from Patricia Basiliere, General Manager at Black Swan Inn Bed and Breakfast
Responded Jan 4, 2021
We feel that we had to respond to this review to let other people know that as a small family owned inn with being impacted by this Covid pandemic and all the challenges we have faced during these difficult times we take a lot of pride in how hard we have worked to make sure our guests are safe and happy with their visit to the Inn. We feel despite these challenging times for us and everyone we still strive to go above and beyond to accommodate each and every one of our guests 100%. We were not aware that you were so unhappy with your accommodations given all the nice things you said during your visit. Or these other things you mentioned in your review until we read this. We are quite honestly was surprised since these things were not brought to our attention during your stay for 2 nights. Any concerns that any of our guests have if we are aware of them we always will address any issues or concerns. We also would of been more than happy to move your family to a larger room for your second night since one had become available if you had just asked us at breakfast that next morning. We were not even aware of the issue with the toilet until the day you left. When you called to reserve a room for 2 adults and 3 children the only room that was available is set up to accommodate no more than 4 people but we made an exception for you and your family of 5 and explained at the time that no other rooms were available. We would of been more than happy to of recommended another hotel that would of been more to your needs.... So of course after showing you all the room we were under the assumption that this was acceptable when you checked in and were not aware of you were unhappy with the room and these other things until this review. We had a room key available but did not realize you never picked up your key that was left for you until the morning you checked out. In regards to the breakfast, we always have available other options when asked and make sure there is always fresh fruit and cereal and toast for picky eaters. Our freshly baked apple cake and muffins were offered and brought to all of our guests before the main entree each morning and we even accommodated your request not to have a breakfast meat served. I am sure you feel you had your reasons to express this and thank you for giving us the opportunity to respond because despite what you felt you had to share, we feel good about what we are doing for all of our guests and know that we are doing our best!
