Description

Circa 1811. Celebrate traditional and contemporary New England at this rambling 17-room Federal estate on two acres that was built in 1811 by master craftsmen and recently renovated. Play chess by the huge hearth in the Great Room that resembles an old tavern with hand-hewn beams and a pickled pine ceiling. Look out on rolling lawns and distant hills while meditating in the spacious and airy sunroom with French doors leading onto the terraced lawn and gardens. Savor afternoon tea in the elegant parlor. Guest bedrooms and suites are named and furnished to reflect a local historic area or person. Sleep on a four-poster, brass or sleigh bed. Several rooms boast working fireplaces. A hearty country breakfast is served in the dining room. Retreats, seminars, meetings and special events are welcome.

Mother-Daughter Getaway

Dear Joan and Steve, This has been a perfect getaway for a Mother and Daughter. You've thought of everything for our comfort and enjoyment. Our room, the Strawberry Banke, was beautiful, comfortable and roomy. We truly enjoyed it. Our breakfasts were delicious and so beautifully presented. Thank you for providing such a gracious home.

Always a Pleasure

Joan & Steve, CH is a wonderful home that you two have brought life to. I have stayed with you many times and it's always been a pleasure. You have worked very hard to keep the inn up to date while not losing its 19th c. charm. You have seen the world through your guests. This "ol' farm boy" from Delaware has enjoyed each and every visit.

From Emily's Poems

Joan and Steve, Your hospitality and kindness bring to mind one of Emily Dickinson's poems: "These are the signs to Nature's Inns Her invitation bread To whosoever famishing To taste her mystic bread - These are the rites of Nature's House The hospitality That opens with an equal width to Beggar and to Bee." Warmest regards,

We recently spent 2 nights at Centennial House as part of a bicycle tour. I thought the House was delightful, the staff extraordinary in their care and attention to details for our group. The food was excellant and no detailed was left out. We would definitely stay here again.
