My friends and I celebrated a birthday at this beautiful Victorian Inn with a delicious High Tea. We were warmly greeted and provided with a history of this beautiful home by Kelly, who also served us our meal. Everything was delicious. A quaint, unique way to celebrate.

My friends and I had a delightful lunch and tea last week. Everything was delicious and the tea room was so quaint. After our meal, Pam, the owner, allowed us to visit the Inn's beautifully decorated rooms. We will be back.

Stayed here for a night en route to skydiving in Lebanon, me. Very very cute and classy place- loved the tea parlor, the room set up, the music playing in the hallway, the grounds. Improvements: no recycling option, not enough visible outlets for gadgets (everyone needs at least 2 these days), a little bit pricey, and lastly couldn't figure out...

Thank you for the review and sorry we didn't know you needed help with the a/c, the windows do open as well but some are harder than others in this old house most of them are still original.

I stayed at the Silver Fountain Inn with my boyfriend and it was absolutely lovely. We were greeted at the door by Pam and she couldn't have been more friendly and caring. Sometimes with older Victorian homes, the decor becomes somewhat overwhelming, but the Silver Fountain Inn was perfectly decorated. Nothing seemed frivolous and it all worked very well with...

We were welcomed graciously; our room was comfortable and nicely appointed; the breakfasts are generous and freshly prepared; and the location near downtown Dover is very convenient for walking to drinks and dinner. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the whole experience is calming and serene. Even the bath products smell wonderful and create a sense of luxury. Definitely...

Wonderful old home, built for a cotton magnate in the 19th century, room was excellent, breakfast lavish and wonderful...a little pricier than the Hampton Inn in Dover (which is perfectly acceptable just not romantic like this B&B). The owners, the Pridgens, were wonderful (Mrs. gave a lecture on the history of the property at breakfast). Will definitely go back, it...

We were visiting Dover for the first time for my niece's graduation. Often we choose accommodations thru AirB&B but we decided to stay at the Silver Fountain Inn & we loved it.

Went here to celebrate Mother's Day! Place is beautiful and the service is great! My husband and I had the asparagus quicker which came with a chive scone. OMG! The scones are to die for!

Let me preface this review by saying that this was my first stay in a B&B, so I don't have any direct experience to refer to. I also think 5* is Perfect which no place will be. That being said, my wife and I had a great stay at the Silver Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor. We started off by...

“Avoid the Duchess”
  • Appearances can be deceiving ... pretty, but lumpy bed
  • Window faces a busy street, bathroom behind the door. Move the chaise to get to either.
