If you are planning a trip to New England, why not stay at one of its most beautiful and historic Inns? This brick stagecoach Inn, built more than two hundred years ago, still welcomes guests just as General Joseph Whitton did as a veteran of the Revolutionary War. The Tavern Room, shown with its great fireplace invites guests to sit and chat just as the Whitton guests did two hundred years ago. Sit in its copious wing chairs by a crackling fire or write a letter to a friend at the two hundred year old secretary desk. Come spend sometime in this special place where history really does still live.

Our stay was very pleasant. Room was clean and breakfast was great! We were 2 flights up so next time we will book sooner to get on 1st floor.

If you're looking for a quiet getaway, the Merrell Inn is a quiet, unpretentious, homey safe haven in a very convenient location. I prefer leaving for activities and not living in them. The Merrell Inn was perfect.

I recently spent a weekend at the Historic Merrell Inn. I travel a lot, all over the world. I recommend this Inn. The Innkeepers couldn't be more welcoming or kind. The rooms are very cute and decorated true to the period of the inn. The Inn was quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable. The location is very convenient and easy to find. The complimentary breakfast menu was large with a choice of homemade eggs, french toast, blueberry pancakes, omelets, cereal, toast, muffins, etc. And there is free WiFi that works!
