Upon inquiring whether there was room for us to take part in the Easter brunch, I was warmly welcomed. The greeter suggested we might enter, after parking, through a back door. When we entered through that back door we were promptly seated and then totally ignored. After about 10 minutes we decided to leave. On the way out, we met...

Servers were very friendly and efficient. The food was very good; I ordered the butternut squash/pumpkin ravioli and would say it is definitely worth a return trip. The acoustics left a bit desired, as it was difficult to hear dinner companions over the crowd noise. But the food and service are definitely worth another visit.

We had lunch at Lantham tavern on Saturday. Food was good,very nice presentation, prices little higher that I would expect for simple sandwiches.$9.95 for 2 pretzels ?? You might be paying for the lovely updates they have done.

Just returned from a 3-night stay at the inn - one of our favorite places in NH! Over the years we have stayed in many of the Inn's rooms - all of them charming - with stenciled walls, quilts on the beds, reading lamps, and good showers. We munched pancakes, scrambled eggs, and french toast on various days for breakfast,...

Attended a family wedding with reception and 2 nights at this wonderful country inn. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating to our needs. As guests we enjoyed a delicious gourmet breakfast each morning and due to a late arrival on our first night we were allowed to wind down at the tavern with very pleasant staff. My only recommendation...

With just a little over a week after the opening of the tavern one can already tell that this tavern is going to be a huge success. Why? Exceptional customer service and delicious food. Tonight was our first visit to this new restaurant and we already know that this is going to be our go to place. The atmosphere is...

We stayed here for two nights while my wife was attending a horse clinic. Staff was very pleasant the entire stay. There was some construction going on outside and one of the workers actually came up and apologized for the noise, which really was so low volume that it wasn't a bother at all. Room was clean and serviceable, nothing...

Some of my family, and family friends spent this weekend at the Inn, and we all agreed we would come back in a heartbeat. Clean and comfortable... cranking AC in 80+ heat. The breakfast was soooo varied and better than any other "breakfast included" stays, except for maybe upscale resorts. Friendly staff and waitstaff. The inn sits on a pretty...

My husband, our family and I could not be more pleased with our wedding weekend at Dowds's! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were all very welcoming and easy to work with. Our family and wedding guests enjoyed the Inn and especially enjoyed the balcony outside of our rooms as well as the breakfast! We would highly...

I stayed at the Inn for 3 nights this September, taking one zero day as well. The folks at the Inn are very friendly, savvy about the trail, helpful with shuttling, and dish up a terrific breakfast. The room was quiet and secure, the shower was divine, and the location is far enough from Hanover to avoid the pricey fare,...
