What a beautiful BnB! Large, recently updated room with in room bathroom, king size bed, tastefully decorated in a comfortable, homey fashion. Lavish breakfast prepared and served by our hosts, Nick and Andrew, who looked after every detail of our visit with promptness and a dry, British sense of humor. Book your room, you will not be disappointed!

My friend and I stayed at the Inn on a Monday night. It was perfect. The gardens were beautiful. The bedroom suite was excellent. Bed and futon very very comfortable. Lots of unique taseful decorating throughout the inn. Loads of beautiful big windows. Close to all area interests. Our hosts were charming. Breakfast was delicious. Will definitely return. Loved the entire experience.

This was our 2nd stay at The Birchwood Inn and again, we absolutely enjoyed it. The style and decor suit the authenticity of this historic inn. We love the tavern and the food is absolutely delicious authentic English cuisine....it is cooked and presented by its authentic and charming English hosts, Andrew and Nick...We brought our daughter in for a bite and she was so impressed that she is having Andrew cook the soup for her New England wedding!.... While there, don't forget to linger a while on the front porch for a beautiful and peaceful view of the New England scenery. Also take a walk through the nearby Revolutionary Period cemetery for an appreciation of our American Colonial Period. You will love your stay at this wonderful inn....We did!

Room Tip: Having only 3 guest quarters add to the charm of this inn. The Cambridge Room perfectly suited our needs.

Have regularly stayed at the Birchwood Inn, and have never been disappointed!
see my review August 2009 - we have been back every year since!!

This year we used the Birchwood Inn as our home base - Cambridge Suite - with Queen Bed and private bath, and I do mean "bath" !!

Bed is comfortable, and it's just awesome to wake up to a New England sunrise!
Room has views to wooded area to rear of the Inn and of more open country on the side elevation.

As a suite it is fairly self contained, with sitting area complete with fridge and hot drink maker! TV is now Flat-screen with DVD player. Décor is rustic, and in keeping with an Inn that is over 200 years old. Room is above the kitchen, but you never know it - well except maybe for the enticing aromas that waft up on Sunday morning - the Inn's Sunday Breakfast Brunch menu is not to be missed!

The Inn is now divided into three Suites - Canterbury, Royal Bath (to the front of the Inn) and Brighton (on ground floor, not in main building, but attached, with own entrance). We have stayed in all three over the years, and each has it's own element of the charm that makes the Birchwood Inn unique and offers you a true taste of Old England in New England!

The accommodation and the London Tavern (did I mention the Inn also incorporates a "pub"? - well it does!) are the domain of Nick, your chatty, genial host, who welcomes all comers in his inimitable English style, a style perfected, whilst working as a Red Coat at Bultlins back in the UK!

The bar is well stocked with English staples Bass and Newcastle ales (to name but a couple), and of course Guinness, from our Irish neighbours!!
Also a good stock of spirits - so cocktails are never a problem!

The Tavern's Restaurant is Andrew's domain and his weekly Chef Specials tasty treats with a regular monthly rendition of his tasty version of the English classic "Fish and Chips" and during our stay Lamb chops! All beautifully cooked and well presented.

In addition to the two English owners, the Inn has a compliment of American staff, and as on previous visits they are all very polite and helpful - always friendly and ready to chat with the guests.

We use Temple as our New England base whenever we are up that way, although off the beaten track it is beautifully rural, but only 90 minutes from Boston MA or 75 minutes to Hampton Beach NH. and about 3 1/2 hours drive from Canada!!

Winter gives a good selection of ski resorts in the vicinity, whilst the town is ideally sited to enjoy the glorious colours that come with a New England Fall!!
