Karen & Murray Washburn's warm and welcoming country home is nestled on a New England hillside amidst woods, meadows and gardens. 6 miles from Hanover and Dartmouth College; 2 miles from the Connecticut River public docks; 10 miles from the Dartmouth Skiway. Mountain-bike and X-C ski trails from our doorstep. It offers cultural and recreational opportunities, or can just be a place to relax and unwind. We take one couple or one family at a time - you will have our informal, personal attention.

Our family of four adults (plus a baby) recently stayed a week at 231 Dogford, and we couldn't have been more pleased. This was the most pleasant B&B experience we have ever had, by far. The hosts, Karen and Murray Washburn, were gracious, friendly, helpful, and accommodating without being at all intrusive on our privacy. The house and grounds are most attractive, and the owners share their game rooms, porches, patio, and other areas very generously. Breakfasts are fabulous, with an excellent variety of beautifully prepared and delicious offerings. The setting is completely private and about a 10-minute drive from Hanover. The only (minor) negatives are that TV viewing is limited to NBC and PBS, and cell phone service can be erratic at times. The wi-fi works well, though. All in all, highly recommended for a relaxing family stay!
