We stay here every year for bike week. It is nice and quiet, away from the craziness of Laconia, but still so close. Takes only 20 min to get to Merredith HD. 30 to the Weirs. Sandra and Clay are the best hosts. Breakfast is delicious, and the rooms are amazing! You can't stay anywhere this nice for this price! See you all next year.. that will make 4yrs in a row!

We felt like a Spring break and so after reading the reviews for the Henry Whipple House it sounded like just the place for a 4-5 day beak, and so it was. Bristol is local to the Newfound lake and the White mountains are just a short drive away. That is the location now the bedrooms, immaculate and comfortable, the breakfasts are Michelin 10star. The hosts are so friendly and informative they both made our stay one to remember and a promise to return is deffinately in my diary. Well done Sandra and Clay.

My wife and I travel frequently and usually bring our 3 children along. Rarely do we find the accomodations so well suiting. Sandra & Clay were very friendly and the place is immaculate. We really appreciated the attention to detail and the obvious thought that they put into the suite. Next year we will return and look forward to staying here again. Our children really enjoyed it and had plenty of room. A+++ My wife and I highly recommend the Henry Whipple House in Bristol, NH.

Henry Whipple House is a wonderfull Bed&Breakfest to stay in Bristol area. The rooms are clean and beautifull. The breakfast is amazing!!! You also have acces to internet and parking are available. We went there for the Mooseman and Sara (the owner) make sure we had everything we needed. She is a good host. We all spent a great time there.

I was in town for one evening with a friend, and we were fortunate enough to have stayed at the Henry Whipple house. We were greeted by the Owner, who was a sweetheart. She explained how everything worked, how to get in and out, breakfast and such.

It's a beautiful old house, with seemingly endless rooms. My friend and I stayed in the "Weaving Room"... 2 very plush beds, and a large private bath. The room had it's own AC unit, which was great. The whole house is decorated stylishly.

Breakfast was probably the best part... Scones, Omelets, Fresh fruit. We had a chance to relax with the owner, and trade travel stories. All together, an excellent experience!

My partner and I stayed at the Henry Whipple House the night before a triathlon, and the room and hostess couldn't have been more perfect! The room had cable TV, a comfortable bed, and was decorated very well. The hostess, Sandra, was accommodating from the moment I reserved the room: she contacted me before our stay to inquire about any special breakfast needs I might have the morning of my race, she greeted us by name when we pulled into the driveway, and she made it possible for me to return after my race for a quick shower!

I would HIGHLY recommend the Henry Whipple House for anyone looking for a charming, comfortable, and perfect stay in the Bristol, NH area!

We have stayed at the Whipple House twice and enjoyed both times immensely. The first time was early summer and it was a great location in which to tour New Hampshire and Vermont. The second time was during spring break where we used it as a base to hike the mountains. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the gourmet breakfasts are delicious. We brought our teenage son and Sandra and Clay made him feel at home, and he had a great time staying there. Because Sandra provides multiple options for breakfast, he always left the table completely full and happy.
