“Great place to stay”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you are in the Keene area stay here you will not be disappointed. The owners Carole and Ken make you very welcome. The breakfasts are very good and the room we stayed in the Blue room was great.

We unfortunately left some of our luggage when we left and Carole went to a lot of trouble to forward it on for which we were very grateful. Do stay here if you get a chance it was delightful.

Room Tip: A great B&B whichever room you choose

I was so impressed with my recent stay at the Ashburn House B&B that I just have to share my experience. Not only was the beautifully appointed house immaculate, I had one of the best sleeps EVER! It was quiet, spacious, and very welcoming. I found deluxe chocolates and fresh bathrobes waiting in my room and tea/coffee/juice/water were available just outside the door. The owner was discreet & friendly and although he called himself the 'sous-chef' he served up a gourmet breakfast that I will long remember. He accomodated my vegetarian and gluten-free diet with ease and every bite of that fresh-squeezed, fresh-baked multi-course meal was delicious. He even sent me off with extra muffins and cherries in a baggie. My only disappointment is that I did not know about this place sooner. Ashburn House is definitely worth stopping for.

This was one of four bed and breakfasts we stayed at during our weeklong trip in New England to see the fall colors. On our arrival, Carol offered us a cup of tea or cider - I took her up on the cider. Ten minutes later she came back with apples, cheese, hot cider and maple sugar for apple dipping! Very nice! Room was great - water pressure could have been better but not sure what you can do in an old house. That is my only complaint. Carol and Ken had an open doorway to their kitchen which I liked. You could stand in the doorway and chat while they cooked. When Carol found out we were hiking Mt. Monadnock she brought us a baggie to take the remaining 4 muffins with us for the hike - boy were they great on what turned out to be a five hour hike (well worth the energy though!). I would definitely stay here again. Thx Carol and Ken for a wonderful stay!

We have stayed at the Ashburn House several times in recent years as our daughter studied at Keene State College. They hosted our family the weekend of her graduation just a week ago and we felt like we were visiting with dear friends. Their breakfasts are always special and delicious. We will definitely visit again with these lovely innkeepers. Thank you Ken & Carol for making our weekend special especially the wonderful breakfast on Mother's day!

The couple running this place were extremely dear and had impeccable timing, anticipating our needs at just the right moment, then disappearing when we were ready for privacy. The accommodations were fitting the era of the home and, at the same time, very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. We will definitely return next time we are near NH.

Stayed here for one night in August in the blue room. The room was beautiful and the decor matched the theme of the whole house. The owners are just the nicest people, made us feel warm and welcome. We spent the day checking out the local antique shops and then dinner at Kimball Farms in a town nearby. At night we went over to the pub at the Fitzwilliams Inn to have a few drinks and listen to the live band, that was really fun as well. Breakfast the next morning was incredible! We cant wait to stay here again.

Room Tip: We loved the Blue Room
