Pines Guest House
Ranked #1 of 3 Durham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 March 2016

Excellent place to stay if you have things to do in Durham, it's on a walking distance to the University of New Hampshire.

The couple that runs it is lovely and helpful. They even took me out for dinner as a farewell.

The only downside I can think of is if you're allergic to cats (they have 3, although they are well behaved).

Stayed: April 2015, travelled on business

Thank you for your positive comments on your recent stay with us. We enjoy treating our guests as friends or family and are pleased if they choose us for a return visit. Two of our cats have recently passed from old age, but although they have the run of the house, none of them are allowed in the bedrooms.

We had a wonderful stay at this charming old home. Absolutely beautiful, relaxing and just what I was seeking! I especially enjoyed the artwork through the house and Mary Margaret's stories about the art!

I work at UNH but live just over 2 hours away so I stay at the Pines Guest House approximately one night a week and I couldn't ask for a more welcoming, comfortable, clean, and interesting place to spend the night. Mary Margaret welcomes me with a warm smile and Roger with a witty remark. The house is by the river and the setting is beautiful with deer sometimes roaming in the field. Thank you for sharing your 1760 historical house. I have stayed here for years and the owners and the place are true gems.

We appreciate our loyal guests who have stayed with us for multiple times - even years! They become friends rather than visitors as we anticipate their frequent stays. They become a part of our lives and we always enjoy catching up on the latest developments. It's like a good friend coming to visit.

It was my first time on the East coast and staying at the Pines Guest House was a wonderful decision. Mary Margaret and Roger were so kind and helpful. Mary gave us very helpful tips on where to park, eat, visit, tour, and whatever else we asked about. Our trip couldn't have gone better and they played a large roll in that. The room was exactly what we wanted, it was very charming and well kept. The history to the house alone was worth staying in my opinion. The breakfast was always more than enough and very tasty. I would definitely recommend this place for an extended stay. Thank you and I hope we see you again in the future!

Thank you so much for your kind words regarding your recent stay with us at The Pines. As long time residents of Durham, we are able to direct our many out-of-town guests to places to eat and shop as well as local attractions. As alumni, we also are able to supply information for locations and activities at UNH. Our separate full kitchen is always appreciated by our extended stay guests especially by our foreign guests who enjoy the opportunity to prepare familiar foods. An on-site clothes washer and dryer are most appreciated.

The Pines gently coaxes you into an experience of refreshment and renewal. The houses itself dates from 1760 and spreads its charms throughout both public and private rooms. It is, at once, filled with art and remembrances of New England, and it is modern and comfortable. The hosts exude an authentic and caring hospitality: from the exquisite bowl of fresh fruit at breakfast to their attention to the details of your visit. I lived in Durham for many years and plan to return. As they say: this is a home away from home, and they are right. Thank you.

Room Tip: There is a delightful range of choices. Each is charming and most comfortable.

Such a beautifully poetic description of The Pines! We are truly a uniques experience and pride ourselves in maintaining a warm home-like atmosphere where our guests are warmly treated like friends. We believe our return rate is very high because of this and strive to maintain the charm of a old house with modern conveniences.
