This rambling and historic eighteenth century Inn is a peaceful and romantic country inn in central New England. Situated on 5+ acres, the inn is the perfect choice for a weekend getaway, celebration or romantic night! Period antiques, warm down comforters, genuine hospitality and interaction with baby goats who have tons of personality are the hallmarks of this New Hampshire bed and breakfast. However, under new ownership, the inn is quickly becoming a destination for dining for couples from as far away as Boston due to Chef Bruce Barnes' crafting a delightful range of world cuisines from the best of local foods. The restaurant features over 10 farms from within 15 miles of the inn as well as the inn's own organic gardens. Completely air conditioned, all 14 guest rooms offer private bathrooms and brand new mattresses and luxury pillows, some with fireplaces and two person whirlpools. Two luxury carriage house suites include jacuzzi's for two, rainwater showers, french door to deck overlooking the inground pool; the ultimate in relaxation.
Classic New Hampshire New England scenery abounds around this village on the Contoocook River with its own covered bridge. Just 90 minutes North of Boston, the Colby Hill Inn is an ideal getaway spot for seeing New England…or doing nothing at all! Relax around our in-ground pool in the summer or hike and bike the nearby trails from our front door. In winter, skiing and tubing are just minutes away at Pat's Peak or Mt. Sunapee. Nearby enjoy the Contoocook River, Lake Sunapee and countless antique shops and museums including the Shaker Canterbury Village. We're just an hour from Vermont, the Seacoast and a little over an hour and a half from the White Mountains.
