About

A comfortable 1840 farmhouse situated in a beautiful setting of woods and rolling meadows. In the heart of rural Washington County, we have hiking trails and a secluded pond - our spot is ideal for nature lovers, photographers, cyclists, hikers ...anyone who enjoys the beauty and charm of the country. We are between the Green Mts. of Vermont and the Adirondacks. Snowshoeing and skiing are all close by, unless a good book in front of the fireplace is more to your liking in the winter months. Our goal is for you to have the most enjoyable and relaxing stay possible. We want you to visit often!

Charming home away home

5 on August 15, 2016

Old house with lots of character and charm nestled in the outskirts of the Adirondacks. Laura was a very welcoming and warm natured hostess. Annie and Frank were adorable house mates (the inn keepers pups) as well as the half dozen chickens parading around the gardens. Breakfast was served at a time we specified (nice touch) and was the most delicious start to our day. The porch was a beautiful way to enjoy a peaceful moment and a cup of tea.


Don't miss Bunker Hill Inn!

Bunker Hill Inn is the ideal B&B experience--picturesque old house, bucolic setting, comfortable beds, good food, front porch with comfortable chairs, and a generally homey atmosphere overseen by the charming and attentive innkeeper, Laura Coldwell. I've stayed twice and will come back whenever I visit Salem. On my most recent visit, I did a 40-minute morning walk and never left the inn's property. It took me to a hilltop that gave a view out over mist-filled valleys.


Great Getaway in Beautiful Setting

My wife and I stayed at Bunker Hill last night. What a great experience! Laura is a wonderful host, and cooks a great breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable, and the country setting was really beautiful. We will definitely be returning!

Great place to Stay

This is a great B&B! Laura is an excellent Inn keeper and she made the stay very nice. She invited my daughter and grandsons over to have breakfast in the morning. Both breakfast meals (Two day stay) were excellent and filling. I loved the Belgium waffles and bought two jars of the Maple spread. The room was very clean and cozy. The stay at Bunker Hill made the weekend even better to visit family. Highly recommended.


Good option near Salem

Laura is a welcoming hostess into her birth home. Nice pastoral setting


The perfect getaway

Laura was the perfect host, as well as Annie and Frank. Our stay was very homey and the place was beautiful. It's nice and quiet so you were really able to relax - yet close enough to all types of quaint shops. My mom and I were there for our "girl's weekend." I'm planning on coming back with my husband and will be telling my sister and her husband about it as they love to go to Bed and Breakfasts.


Lovely Bunker HIll
