The Lyttleton Inn is a restored 19th century farmhouse that sits nestled in the Nashoba Valley, surrounded by the farming towns and villages of yesteryear, yet just steps away from the bustling town common. Seeing to the comfort of a traveller, whether for business or pleasure, is a New England tradition here at the Lyttleton Inn. Our guests discover delights in the most unlikely places; sumptuous feather beds, old-world baking, well-loved books and the gentle art of conversation. We invite you to come explore our wonderful Inn and experience the many activities of the Nashoba Valley region. Littleton is minutes away from two major freeways and the commuter rail, so the Lyttleton Inn is a perfect launch pad for day trips to Harvard, Devens, Lowell, Concord, Lexington and Boston. For the business traveller, the Inn is just a short walk away from the new IBM facility here in Littleton.
A blushing peach highlights the spare beauty of the second story chamber which features a double bed and a private bath. The architectural details such as a period mantle, large windows, and wide plank floors are embellished by needlepoint rugs and antique prints of the Gibson Girls. The antique mahogany sleigh bed is graciously appointed with an old-fashioned featherbed and sumptuous linens. A cozy reading corner lends itself to the perusal of a bounteous collection of all your favorite authors.
Refresh your soul in the peace of the Poet’s Corner. South-facing windows bathe this second story chamber with a gentle morning light. The honeyed-oak antiques and muted sylvan hues encircle the twin beds, nested with cozy flannel sheets and matelasse coverlets. Wide plank floors are warmed by hand-braided rugs, and tucked here and there are well-loved poetry books, waiting to be discovered. The room has a private bath with shower.
The spacious second story chamber looks out on an ever-changing vista of the four seasons of New England. The room features a majestic mission-style oak queen bed and is adorned with a featherbed and sumptuous linens. Period furnishings, Hudson Valley style oils and embroidered leaf curtains add to the woodsy feel. A roll top desk and topical musings new and old will satisfy the Thoreau in you!
Sail over the threshold into the world of Melville. The magnificent mahogany armoire sets the tides for an ever-changing azure room, anchored by a mahogany and wrought iron queen bed in full regalia. The room lays claim to a private bath with a rainfall shower.
Cross over into the melodious world of the Four Seasons suite, where the splendid 19th century mantle tiles set the theme for this spacious first floor two room suite. The lavish queen brass bed, antique furnishings, and a convertible twin loveseat with ottoman are all skillfully composed with your comfort in mind. The suite includes a private bath with a Jacuzzi and separate shower.

We were very impressed with the beautiful décor, the warm staff, and comfortable atmosphere of the Lyttleton Inn. There were books everywhere!! I would definitely recommend staying here.

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Lyttleton and look forward to going back. The room (Mariner Room) was cosy, very clean, decorated with antiques and lovely details, lots of books and, most importantly, a very comfortable bed. The owner, Mary, is absolutely charming and the breakfast and snacks were out-of-this-world delicious. The location was perfect for the purpose of our trip (attending a concert at the Bull Run in Shirley, MA, just minutes away then visit to Lowell and Harvard the next day). Two thumbs way up from us!

Very homely, relaxing B and B. The lounge and dining areas were very welcoming with tea, coffee, plenty of books and newspapers to read - a real home from home.

I've stayed at the Lyttleton at least 10 times now in the past 3 years and it's always like my home away from home. The Inn Keeper is so sweet and sincere and has really set the bar high for every other B&B. I have fallen in love with the Inn, the decor and the amazing three course breakfasts! I will stay at the Lyttleton Inn as often as I can!

The Dugans are transplanted midwesterners who have settled in the New England area. This is their third restoration of an antique structure. The Inn reflects their love of food, antiques, books, gardens, and leaky pipes!

The Lyttleton Inn Classic
Nothing stirs the soul like being greeted at the table by freshly-baked Cinnamon Rolls, redolent with spices, currants and butter, and served fresh from the oven. The main course is The Purist's Omelet, a testament to farm-fresh produce, three eggs are cooked to perfection, and gently folded over fresh spinach, portobello mushrooms, and smoked vermont cheddar. Crisp bacon and fresh fruit in season round out a bounteous plate. Fresh juice, hot coffee and signature teas are generously provided.
