We spent 2 nights at The Silver Fountain Inn, in a 3rd floor room, The Duke, that was beautifully furnished with a Queen carved mahogany bed, large dresser, comfortable sitting chair with an ottoman. The room was spacious. and elegant, with a private bathroom and shower. The bed was wonderfully comfortable, with beautiful and soft bed linens. The bath towels were very plush and large, and there were 2 terrycloth bathrobes in the closet for our use. Our family had booked all rooms at the Inn for my daughter's wedding, so we filled the building for the night. Pam and Jim were so hospitable, friendly, and just could not do enough to make us comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and served in the elegant dining room with damask tablecloths, white china, and flowers on the table. Fresh OJ, and coffee, and warm, just baked popovers to start! The night after the wedding our whole family stayed up talking in the living room with the fireplace lit, and Pam was there to offer fresh coffee or tea, and fresh chocolate chip cookies. She knew all 16 of us by name, and took genuine interest in how our day was. She was excited to hear about the wedding, and to see our photos. It felt like home, like a warm and loving home!
I would gladly stay at the Silver Fountain Inn again and again, and I will be happy to recommend it to all I know! This place is a real Gem!!!

Room Tip: each room is a little different but all are beautiful and spacious. This is an old Victorian house with Oriental carpeted stairs to get to rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor. Some rooms have a pull out or trundle bed to accommodate 2-4 persons.

This place is such a gem! The staff was accommodating, sweet and generous. The rooms are gorgeous! Wa ivienne and duchess. Bothve such charming and inspiring decor, so comfy and delightful. Breakfast was fresh and filled with so many little treats. Every nook and cranny to this place is memorable and pleasant. It is an absolute no brainer to stay here. The staff does one brilliant job. Bravo! Leanne & Jorge

Pam and Jim were the most charming and able hosts we've met in our years of B&B travel. They will do everything in their power, which is considerable, to make guests comfortable and content. The inn is a beautiful old house, ultra clean, easy to find, with plenty of parking. Breakfasts are superb. We stayed six nights and enjoyed every minute, including coffee and cookies after dinner and a friendly greeting every morning. We will be regulars here.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are huge.

having stayed in many B&B's this one is one of our favorites. The house is amazing, our room was beautiful and spacious. The breakasts were great,thencookies in the afternoon added a touch.Pam & Jim were outstanding host and hostess.We felt like we nknew them forever, so friendly. The town of dover was a cute town. The beaches in York, New hamphsire, and the beach in ALgunquit, Maine were breathe taking. Definitely will be going back real soon!!! It was an enjoyable get a way weekend for us!!

Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous. What a shame my son and I could only stay for one night. We do not know this part of the world, so our first visit. Great welcome, my room was so pretty (Eleanor). Really good breakfast. The whole place is spotless. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Pick this B&B
