We have been coming to the farm by the river for the past three years, and each visit has been exceptional. From the moment you enter, you receive a warm welcome from Rick and Charlene, and you begin to experience the delightful atmosphere of the cosiest, friendliest B&B in North Conway! We always stay in the same room, and its always been clean and well maintained. Breakfast meals are filling and healthy. Its a great feature that they offer horse riding on site, and we loved the new addition of goats to the farm! Looking forward to the next time we visit.

We had been planning a nature-filled getaway for some time and finally came upon Farm By the River. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay here—from the second we walked in we were welcomed and taken care of. The rooms are perfectly quaint, clean, and cozy and the scenery could not be beat. Breakfast in the morning was to die for and even more so when it was served out on the patio overlooking the mountains. The horses and other animals were all very friendly and a great addition to the stay—especially the goats Max and Freckles that we even got the chance to play with. Tucked away on a quiet road where you can count the number of cars that pass by in an hour while sitting on a rocking chair on the front porch, the bed and breakfast is just minutes from the center of town and tons of delicious restaurants and great shops. RIght down the road are incredible waterfalls at Diana's Baths, Echo Lake State Park, and Cathedral Ledge to tucker you out so you can come back and enjoy some time laying on the outdoor hammock. Needless to say, we will definitely be returning in the future!

The Farm was recommended to us by my husband's best friend. She raved about it so we went in August after her wedding. The best, relaxing vacation we've ever had. Charlene makes the best strawberry muffins and we met some wonderful people. We loved it so much we went back that January for our own wedding which Rick officiated. It was beautiful and both Rick and Charlene made our families feel extremely welcomed.

What a glorious time we had! We intended to stay for two nights, but fortunately were able to stay an additional night. The inn is a short distance from the center of North Conway, but in a relaxed rural atmosphere. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the stable and goats are delicious and varied. The hosts offer tips on a varitey of topics rangeing from where to eat to the many activities and scenic places available. We biked, kayaked and hiked the area. Late afternoons were spent in the garden with a glass of wine enjoying the view. We are already planning a return trip.
