Circa 1795. Above the Connecticut River overlooking the White Mountains, Samuel Hodby opened this tavern and provided a general store and inn to travelers. As many as 100 horse teams traveled by the inn each day. The ballroom, constructed in 1855, was supported by bent-wood construction giving the dance floor a spring effect. The classic Greek Revival exterior features solid pine Doric columns. Romance abounds in every nook and cranny. Rooms are decorated to the hilt with beautiful furnishings and linens. The Loft room, which overlooks the garden, includes cathedral ceilings and a hidden staircase. The Jonathan Commings Suite offers two fireplaces, a whirlpool and a mountain view from its third-story private porch. Turndown service and afternoon tea are only a couple of the amenities. Glorious breakfasts and gourmet, candlelit dinners add to a memorable stay.

Great Stay

It is not often that one experiences one's vision of a tranquil, beautiful step back in time. This is such an experience. Everyone was so accommodating and gracious.
