Was a nice place. However the suite 2 bed was pretty hard. Ok if you like very firm. I didn't sleep well. I recommend staying in the Inn itself, if you want to experience the Victorian feel. The suites did not have that for me personally. The place did have great history.
We stayed at the Inn while attending a wedding and we were pleasantly greeted by the nice couple who run the Inn. Our room was so clean and beautifully decorated. It was also very roomy. The bed was so very comfortable and the temp in the room was just right. The rest of the inn was stunningly charming.There was room after room of historic items to see and the rooms were decorated so lovely. The breakfast was to die for. When we came down stairs we could smell the blueberry pancakes and bacon in the air. They were the best pancakes we ever tasted due to them being so light and fluffy. The tables were decorated with the best dishes and plenty of coffee and tea,and juice. The gazebo porch was an added bonus and it was so lovely to sit out and just enjoy the air and the beautiful grounds of the Inn. We will definetly be back to enjoy this inn and the very accommodating and nice owners.…
We were up in the area for my niece's wedding. My wife looked around for a place to stay. She came across The Black Swan B&B. This is such a great place. The whole staff are great. This is a Grand Victorian age home. I can't begin to describe the charm that this home holds. Located not far from shopping. But conveniently located to some of the greatest areas of N.H. You are welcomed with one of the greatest breakfasts that you will ever have. A family of fantastic people host this B&B. This is a must see place. Easy to get to. You will fall in love with it.
Stayed here for NH Speedway races. The owners, Trish and John, are very warm and friendly. They have done an amazing job at maintaining this hidden treasure and keeping the period of time true! Our room was charming and cozy. Trish’s love of cooking shows in the beautiful and delicious breakfasts we had, absolutely splendid! The 1940’s era music playing while eating breakfast in the dining room transported me back in time! Will definitely be coming back!
What a wonderful, charming, welcoming place! The hostess, Trisha, and her mom are genuinely thoughtful people. The house is amazing - historic, beautifully appointed, rich in architectural detail, and surrounded by well-kept grounds. Our room/suite was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We only had one night to enjoy the Black Swan, but our next visit will be longer.
One of the best experiences we’ve both had in a long long time. Great owners, a beautiful room, and a breakfast second to none. The grounds were incredible, and the surrounding towns displayed their own uniquenesses
This was my second time staying here. This time we stayed in carriage house. I was able to bring my dog. Had a king bed that was comfy. Ceiling fan was nice to have. Private bathroom/shower. I liked that it had coffee, small refrigerator and microwave. The rooms in main Inn don’t have that. No TV in bedroom but had a TV and sofa in the small attached living room. It was private and quiet. It’s not a beautiful room and It definitely needs updating which I’m sure owners will get to at some point. Didn’t seem like it gets used much, had some cob webs. Had everything we needed for a one night stay. Early check in was nice. Rooms were nice and warm on a cold February night. Breakfast was delicious in main Inn. Already booked this same room for next month.
We really wanted to stay in unique places on our road-trip, and Black Swan was perfect. The house is beautiful, with a fascinating story of its own, and Trish has really made it a special place in modern times. This is an elegant and intricate place, but an intimate and very comfortable stay. To top things back off, breakfast was delicious. Definitely consider Black Swan for your NH or Boston adventures.
Stayed one night in the small Thomas Edison room on third floor. Shared bathroom. For a longer stay I would definitely want private bath. There is a bathroom on first floor you can use also. This was our first time at a Bed and Breakfast. It was clean and comfortable. LOVELY dinning room for yummy breakfast (7:30-9:30). Make your own coffee/tea available 24/7. Our dog was welcome to stay at the Inn, which was a huge plus for us. Plenty of towels. Robes, Shampoo,conditioner and soap provided. Plenty of parking. We spent Halloween eve there and a Paranormal gathering was happening on the main floor (kinda cool). Although staying on third floor was nice and away from everything, it’s up 2 large flights of stairs. Beautiful screened in porch attached to house was wonderful to sit and have my coffee because it poured outside and porch was easy access and comfortable. Owners are hard working and super nice. I would absolutely recommend staying here and look forward to our next stay. Oh did I mention, it’s DOG FRIENDLY!…
Review: Upon arrival you enter a very elegant room with striking stained glass accents in round parlour room off living room with fire place. Which is what attracted us in the first place. Unfortunately we couldn’t avail ourselves to enjoy that space as there was some kind of meeting carrying on with about 15-20 people who we at first thought were staying here, but appears they were not staying at the inn. We first tried to sit on the porch but this group occupied that first. We were forced to go to a back patio which lacked any ambiance & was very noisy with street traffic. So because of that we thought let’s move to the living room 20 minutes later that group had moved to the living room and occupied every seat for the next hour & a half. No one was masked and we assumed they we all individuals so a much greater risk as they would be from numerous families. On the positive side; our room was spacious, clean, and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was just ok: French toast which consisted of store bought croissants sliced in half with some sort of cream sauce with blueberries & 2 slices of bacon. We assumed we were they only ones staying at the inn as other than this group we saw no one else and felt a bit rushed by this young lady as she asked us twice within 5 minutes if we were ready for breakfast. A lot of the other offerings were individually wrapped and not very interesting. Some English muffins & bagels. Nothing really home made. One down side about staying in this area not a large choice of interesting restaurants. There is a list of nearby restaurants in your room but you need to do your due diligence as there aren’t any real recommendations from the inn.…
