Getting to Jefferson late in the afternoon, Darrel welcomed us for happy hour. The honey goat cheese roll with sesame seeds was delicious. We stayed in the carriage house which was stocked with water, sodas, and snacks--even brownies. Breakfast was delicious with homemade biscuits, friata , grapes in yogert with b rown sugar. The serving pieces were unique and all... More

Stayed there on a 2 days trip to Tilton. The place is quite comfortable. The antiques , furniture and detailed work makes it a work from history. The owner- Cheryl is very helpful. Since we were new to the place, she helped us with maps, directions and gave us a lot of information. The staff is friendly as well. Would... More

$147 is a lot of money for a hotel room on our budget, but we splurged on this B&B and were not disappointed. Our room (Henry Ford) was smallish but the trundle bed helped fit our 2 13-year-old daughters. Breakfast was served in a wonderful, old-fashioned dining room -- great ambiance. Beautiful grounds invokes a relaxed atmosphere with lots of... More

To be honest we normally like modern conveniences and typically newer/fancier places to stay. I decided to try the Black Swan based in part from the beautiful pics and in part from the great reviews throughout hotel sites. At first it was a little hard to get used to, but the charm and friendly staff at the Inn quickly won... More

We were fortunate to find this gem in the Lakes Region of NH. So impressed with the craftsmanship of this B&B. Photos do not do this justice. The owners were gracious, the room exquisite, and the breakfast was wonderful!

Stayed in the King Suite. We had a great visit strolling the grounds and walking down to the nearby park and back. Downtown is just a short walk away. Would like to see the old bathtub repaired so you could soak in its deep depths, but the shower is perfectly good. Fireplace in room is a great bonus. Great place!

This was one of the best B&B's we've stayed at. If you are looking for charm, beauty, peacefulness, wonderful hosts, and a piece of history...this is the place to be! We would come back to the area just to visit this wonderful Inn. Doug and Karen

you can't find a more nostalgic or mysterious or traditional inn than the Black Swan; the attention to the 1910 - 20's detail in each room sends you back in time. There's a piano in a first floor dark wood room with sunshine beaming in through the perfectly placed ornate wood windows. Trust me, you'll feel like you ate breakfast... More

We had a very nice stay at the Black Swan Inn. The hosts, Patricia and John were outgoing, friendly and accommodating. John, although obviously busy, stopped what he was doing and gave us a detailed history of the house and it's original owner. We stayed in one of the Carriage House suites, which is a separate building from the main... More
