What a charming, lovely place! And the owners were very friend and accommodating. We are definitely going to be staying there again.

Gwen and Eric have a lovely B&B; a beautiful Victorian home on a hill with a beautiful backyard - complete with miniature horses, chickens and goats! Eric's tasty breakfast and friendly service was a great way to start our day!

Perfect for wedding weekend lodging

Our wedding party and families recently stayed at the Jefferson Inn--it was a fantastic way to spend some time with the important people in our lives. Erin and Gwen were incredibly hospitable and the inn was the perfect place to call home for the weekend. The setting, food, and overall quality of our stay were outstanding.

great place to stay

Had a great time at Jefferson Inn. It was beautiful, homey, and inviting! Owners happily shared local places of interest and their barnyard animals with our children. It was super relaxing, quaint, and quiet in town and super close to Santa's Village with Franconia Notch State Park less than 1/2 hour away. Breakfast was yummy and coffee delicious!

Spring visit for family gathering

We loved the sight of the chickens running through the yard while we enjoyed a lovely breakfast. An early Summer or Autumn visit would be prettier as the landscape was mostly shades of brown. Extra pillows would have been nice - but we didn't ask so they may be available. I hope to stay again and enjoy another of the beautiful rooms. Polly and Bud Baril

Feel like home!

We got married in that beautiful B & B. They were gracious enough to accomodate us.

The Jefferson Inn was a perfect location for our family to stay while dogsledding in Jefferson, NH. Over Christmas break, my mother (74) myself (47) and two "kids" (20 and 16) stayed at the Jefferson Inn in the Stalbird Stuite for 2 nights. The two rooms and bath were very clean and the beds very comfortable.(note the rooms are not exactly as pictured on the website, but still decorated nicely). Gwen, our innkeeper, was warm and easy to talk with. Breakfast was yummy and filling. Additionally there were cookies and tea each afternoon which were most welcome. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Jefferson Inn.

We recently stayed at the Jefferson Inn. We have stayed in the past and have always had a great experience! Gwen and Eric have always been very easy to deal with and are very respectful! The atmosphere is very welcoming and the rates are incredible! I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anybody!
