ABSOLUTELY PERFECT !!!!!

5 on August 02, 2016

Stayed at the Inn earlier this week for two nights in the Samuel Room. My husband and I have been visiting inns and bed and breakfasts throughout New England for over 30 years and we have been to some beautiful places BUT the Darby Field Inn was, by far, the most beautiful inn with the most magnificent in. That we have ever visited. The inn and grounds are kept in absolutely meticulous condition. The views from our balcony were more beautiful than my words can describe. The food was excellent. Our waitress for dinner was excellent and so much fun to chat with. Carol, you certainly have met your calling working at the inn. It is very obvious that you take so much pride in what you do and it shows. You always had a smile on your face and were so accommodating. Marc, you have a beautiful property and top notch employees. We absolutely loved every mi ute of our stay. Kathy and Ernie from Rhode Island.

Deciding to elope at the Darby Field Inn was the best decision I made second only to deciding to marry my best friend, David. The quaint, cozy atmosphere and gorgeous mount views from the Mt Washington suite made it hard to leave. The food was DELICIOUS, and Marc, Carol, and Leigh were an absolute pleasure to deal with. THANK YOU for making our special day so memorable. We can't wait to come back!

Thank you Darby Inn for making memories with our families. Everything was wonderful, the rooms, the food, the staff. We all enjoyed ourselves and the weather was perfect. The bride and groom look liked something out of fairy tales with your beautiful inn as a location. Thank you


New England Break

As a returning guest, we had an expectation of a similar standard of comfort, welcome, dining and location. We were not mistaken and in fact it exceeded our expectations. The staff were helpful and welcoming; the dining was to die for; and the location is exquisite. We used it as a base to explore New Hampshire and navigated the roads without GPS! Returning each day to a relaxing swim in the pool and a read on our private deck. The Darby Field Inn is a real gem. To all British visitors this is a genuine place to stay: "It does what it says on the tin!" Keith & Christine M


Top notch get away

One of the finest B&B's I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The chef and his food was absolutely heavenly. I will be back.


Beautiful respite

We spent 3 lovely days there. It feels nicely isolated, but is not far from North Conway and other areas. Very relaxing, idyllic, and the most hummingbirds I've ever seen!


Excellent week at the Darby Field Inn
