We really enjoyed the homey hospitality at this place. The feel of the place is really informal and relaxed. We immediately felt right at home.
We had dinner there also and felt like we were in an English pub. British fare that was quite good, and genuinely friendly service. Exactly what I think an English Inn should feel like. I'd recommend eating here, though we did hear of some really nice restaurants in the Peterborough area also. It made for a really relaxing evening.
One important thing to note is that there were locals dining with us (and chatting with us, too) which added to the "pub" feel and really underscores how nice and welcoming of a place this is.
The custom-cooked breakfast was a great way to start the day. This was a real breakfast, eggs, omelets, toast, etc. Not a "continental" breakfast found in other places.
The town itself was quiet and quintessential new England with white churches and a small crossroads-of-a-town. A really good base for exploring the area.
Our room was very clean and comfortable, well appointed. An English theme, but not overdone. We had a small sitting area and the whole room felt very comfortable. The building is over 200 years old, and while the charm of that is there, the bathroom was modern and the room didn't feel worn or dirty as sometimes historic inns like this can feel.
This place exceeded our expectations, we look forward to going back and spending more time there.
