“perfect peaceful getaway”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

We found the Highland House on a whim and couldn't have been happier with our discovery. Dale was a wonderful host and made us feel comfortable throughout the duration of our stay. The room was clean and neat. The decor was elegantly rustic, we loved the art. Also Dale's dog Zoey was adorable and we enjoyed hanging out with her! We look forward to staying at the inn again.

Room Tip: No swimming pool or fitness center.

Highland House is in a picture book setting and we couldn't fault the warmth of the welcome, the cleanliness of the rooms and the breakfast. They also catered for the small wedding reception and did a great job. The configuration of the rooms and their relationship to bathrooms is a bit unusual but we certainly enjoyed a great sleep in this beautiful, peaceful place. It would make a great stopover on the way from Boston to the White Mountains.

Room Tip: All are upstairs and everyone seemed happy with theirs.

Though I consider myself a world traveler, this was my first trip to New England and I was completely blown away. I arrived in central New Hampshire during the first 2 weeks of autumn color. The weather was perfect and the fall colors were spectacular. I stayed at Highland house, a 5 bedroom B&B just outside the picturesque village of Tamworth. HH was built in 1971 and has been lovingly maintained. The 5 guest bedrooms are all upstairs and offer unfettered views to the woods and mountains right out the front door. The rooms are large and airy, and like the rest of the house spotlessly cleaned. The bottom floor consisted of a large dining room and a lovely sitting room, and a very active working kitchen. The proprietor, Dale Bragdon is also a well known caterer and wedding planner, many of the weddings take place on the beautiful grounds surrounding HH. So food is not only good and bountiful but can be unusual and sophisticated. I was fortunate enough to be there during a fairly quiet time, before the full autumn season, so I was quite pampered. Dale was also my guide for a tour of the miles of hiking and cross country ski trails that begin a few hundred yards out the front door. Highland House is picture perfect, a gem, set in one of the most beautiful settings I have seen. I will definitely return for a longer stay.
