Our Payment Policies:

We offer old-fashioned, New England hospitality with hand-crafted breakfast, sheets hung out to dry, and a fire kindled on the hearth in season.  In short, we hope you will stay awhile and get acquainted.

Our rates:

Our regular rates reflect our intention to offer a well-priced, excellent hospitality year-round.  They include a home-cooked breakfast and presuppose enough lead time to properly prepare to receive you.  Please see below for surcharges for late bookings and extra people in a room and minimum-night stays for peak periods. To these prices, we must add 9 percent for the NH Rooms and Meals tax (License No. 61867, NH Department of Revenue Administration).

Garden/Nest for two guests:

$175 for one night;

$150 per night for two nights;

$125 per night for three or more nights.

Cove for two guests:

$150 for one night;

$125 per night for two nights;

$100 per night for three or more nights.

Last-minute bookings, Minimum-Night Stays and Extra People:

Last-minute bookings:  We offer true hand-crafted hospitality, which means we need some lead time to create for you a memorable stay.  We can welcome all of those among us who are too busty to book well ahead, but we will add a surcharge to cover the cost of running out for more bacon at closing time..  For bookings within 48 hours of check-in, we will add $50/night

Minimum Stays:  We require a two-night minimum stay during our busiest seasons, which include:

  1. Massachusetts February school vacation — Friday, February 14, 2020 through Saturday, February 22, 2020

If you cancel your reservation with fewer than 14 days’ notice, a cancellation fee will apply and be charged to the credit card number you used to hold the reservation.   The fee will equal one night’s stay or half the cost of a multi-night reservation. The cancellation fee for special event/holiday weekends equals the minimum-stay cost.

The NH Prometric Testing Center is located at 2 Whitney Road, #24, which is less than a mile away with a Dunkin Donuts conveniently across the street.   Guests often stay with us the night before their tests, so they know they will be ready and rested for what can be high-pressure exams.  We offer Prometric customers a 10 percent discount, with some evidence of test enrollment.
