Mt. Washington Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Shelburne B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 23, 2009

This was my first experience staying at a bed and breakfast and I really loved it. Mt. Washington B&B was cozy, inviting and authentic New England.

The Inn Keeper, Mary Ann, was very welcoming and accommodating. She gave us a tour, introduced us with some of the local attractions and then let us settle in. The next morning her and her niece set us up with a fantastic breakfast, raspberry and lemon pancakes with your choice of breakfast meat.

The room was a nice size as was the bathroom. The bed was fantastically comfortable. I don't think ive slept as soundly as I did here, in months. I was out like a light with no tossing and turning as usually happens in hotels.

The location was the best part. It was right outside of Gorham so as to still have a country feel, but not so far that it was a pain to run into town.

I really enjoyed my stay at Mt. Washington B&B. If you are looking for a vacation that feels like your at a home away from home, I recommend staying here. Sometimes it is nice to feel like you are on vacation... aka.. you want a hotel with a pool and restaurant etc.... but for a different vacation feel, try a B&B.

During our 2 week trip to New England we stayed in about 10 B&Bs and hotels. This was the best B&B. We received an upgraded room which was quiet, clean and comfortable.

Mary Ann was really friendly and helpful and produced a super breakfast the next morning. If we hadnt already booked for the next night we would have stayed an extra night there.

At 90 Dollars for the night we thought this was excellent value. Would recommend this B&B.

We spent one night while we were travelling viewing the fall foliage. We saw a moose eating leaves on our drive there and stopped to take pictures (as did many others). The B&B was comfortable and met all of our expectations. The breakfast the next morning was great! Maple syrup pancakes. Yum!! It was nice having a leisurely breakfast, talking with the other guests and Mary Ann. The surrounding scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed our brief stay.

I spent a week at the Mt. Washington B&B. It was fantastic! I was traveling throughout the White Mountains as part of a photo shoot in October. The autumn colors were superb and so were my accommodations. I put in long days driving, hiking, exploring, and shooting photographs. It was nice to return in the evenings to fresh brownies and hot tea. Mary Ann is a great source of information for obscure roads, peak autumn conditions, whatever.... She was always pleasant as were the other guests. The breakfasts were always tasty cooked with fresh, local ingredients. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Mary Ann's B&B is comfortable and clean. It has all sorts of nice touches, the hot drinks that are always available, the afternoon snacks, the cheery fire that crackles as you eat a really tasty breakfast. But, to me, the place is a gem because Mary Ann is so dedicated to her guests. She has a knack for figuring out which snack you'd like best, whether you're in the mood for company or quiet time, and what would make you especially comfortable; then she provides it without any fuss.

Mary Ann knows her corner of the world. We wanted a place to snowshoe, she told us of a great place not more than 10 minutes away. The next day, we wanted to cross-country ski, preferably someplace new. She directed us to a fabulous place 20 minutes away. Each night, we'd come up with a different type of restaurant we were in the mood for and Mary Ann knew just were we should go.

The icing on the cake was when we told her how much we liked her coasters and that we wished we had a set. She told us where to find them and, if they were out-of-stock, offered to send them along when they came in.

During our trip home, the first topic of conversation was when we were going to be able to come back. This from people who love to try new things really says something about how happy we were at the Mt. Washington Bed and Breakfast.

Mary Ann has a way of making you feel like family. She bends over backwards to make you as comfortable as possible. This was our second visit and we plan to make a December trip for our Christmas tree (kicking off our Christmas holiday right!) annually!! The rooms are cozy and the coffe/tea/hot chocolate bar is fabulous...complete with the star shaped peppermint flavored peeps!! We love her and her home!

My dad and I stayed here for 2 nights while hiking in the White Mountains. We found the experience charming, comfortable, and distinctly enjoyable, and would strongly recommend it to all others!

The guest rooms are quaint, clean, and well-decorated. Breakfast was delicious, and Mary Ann was helpful and accomodating regarding all aspects of our stay, including our wet return from a rainy hike.
