Candles in the windows will welcome you to our charmingly romantic brick federal colonial inn (circa 1820). Seven spacious rooms, four with working fireplaces, all with private baths and comfy beds, are furnished with antiques. Awaken refreshed to a full hearty breakfast before setting out to enjoy the many activities the region has to offer. Complimentary refreshments await you upon your return (or whenever you wish). Stroll the wooded area around our property, enjoy our quiet, bird population. See our website at atwoodinn or contact us directly.

Great antique 1850 house with tasteful antiques & reproductions. Friendly hosts who went out of their way to make stay comfortable. Peaceful country setting yet close to action of Newfound Lake

we stayed for the 1st time at the inn but were surrounded by others who were return guests. The inn keepers were friendly and interesting and relaxed while offering suggestions and making their breakfast dining room a place to linger after the great breakfast was consumed.

We found Sandi and Fred to be extraordinary B&B hosts. Both were very friendly and accommodating, making us feel comfortable and welcome to be their guests. We enjoyed the stories they shared with us of their family and travels. The room was pleasantly furnished though the two beds were on the soft side. Breakfast was served "community table" style which encouraged guests to get to know each other a bit while enjoying a meal of fruit salad, eggs, sausage, and Sandi's signature scones. We would look forward to another stay here!

We were told about the Atwood by friends. It was all they said it was – a real home-from-home! The rooms are clean, comfortable and cosy, and the welcome warm and sincere. And as for Sandy’s breakfasts – they are legendary. She cooks up an amazing plateful, different every day, then we had to find room for her freshly-made scones! If you are in the area, you must book a room. If you’re not in the area, MAKE A DETOUR!!!

We stayed at the Atwood Inn in July 2009 and again in August 2010 while visiting family on Webster Lake. Sandi and Fred are most welcoming and always go the extra mile to accommodate you. The breakfasts are delicious - especially Sandi's scones and she even shares the recipe with you! The rooms are spacious and we are very comfortable there.

My husband and I had such a great time at the Maria Atwood Inn. It was classy, comfortable and clean. Sandi and Fred take very special care of their home and their guests. We didn't want to leave. The breakfasts are amazing and the scones are delicious. The innkeepers are so kind. Don't hesitate to stay here. This B&B is truly fantastic!

The Maria Atwood Inn is a treasure! I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay. Wonderful breakfast in such quality surroundings and furnishings. The hosts really go the extra mile for their guests.

A beautiful place. Sandi & Fred could not be friendlier or more helpful with suggestions and directions to places of interest. A very large yard for walking and relaxing, more books to read than a library, quiet areas to sit and ... Not a single negative, or even average thing to report. Could not ask for a better place to stay

We stayed 2 nights at the Maria Atwood Inn when we were in Franklin for a family reunion. The innkeepers had warned us that it was "Bike Week," but as it turned out, we were pleasantly surprised. She put our two rooms together and we had a suite for our stay, which separated us from other guests. The breakfasts (shared with the really fun bikers) were outstanding, and the rooms really lovely. The bed was a little small and squeaked every time we moved, but other than that, the place was terrific. We would certainly go again.

A delightful little innkeeper and welcomed us to her wonderful home near the Lakes Region and Canterbury Village, but who wanted to go anywhere? We could have spent the entire day and another one just relaxing, talking and eating. Moose sausage for breakfast! It was the first b&b experience for my friend, and it will be a hard one to beat!
