B&B for Vets

5 Very clean, friendly and accomodating B&B! Extremely grateful for this location participating in the B&Bs for Vets program AND for welcoming our two large and friendly dogs. When they advertise 'pet friendly' they are serious! Would definitley return!!

A Slice of (Literary!) Heaven

5 on November 03, 2015

Ten members of the Berlin Writers' Group flocked to Coppertoppe B & B for a Halloween writing retreat. Our gorgeous destination exceeded all expectations -- comfortable, luxurious, beyond fabulous. Our hosts, Sheila and Bill, made sure we were well cared for -- and well fed! -- and that the courting of muses possible. We're already planning our next visit! Highly recommended.

Innkeeper Response
We are inspired by your prolific enthusiasm both to host more writers and to get back to writing ourselves. Not that it is "easy" to craft good stories, yet it is possible and valuable. Thank you for being great guests and uplifting us.

Breathtaking view, warm welcome, wonderful food

We spent one night at Coppertoppe. There were 5 of us (6 including my dog) in the family suite and it was a comfortable fit at a very reasonable price. Throw in the priceless view (all rooms have a stunning view of newfound lake) and the tailor made breakfast (gluten free pancakes, frittata, bacon, sausage and fresh fruit) and it was a steel. Bill and Sgeila were welcoming and accommodating. When we arrived Sheila led my 7 and 10 year old boys down to the play room where they rediscovered their love of toy trucks. In the morning the boys went out to the lobby to watch cartoons and the adults and dog got to sleep in. The boys want me to mention the pond (frogs!) and the snack table (chips! Little cereal boxes! Juice boxes! And other more adult friendly snacks as well, including a wine rack. I particularly appreciated the fully stocked selection of teas and the bird nest right outside our window. Thank you!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for sharing your beautiful family with us. Your boys are great kids and were mannerly as well as friendly. As I told them, our toys get lonely if nobody plays with them. We were happy to be able to help your family have the visit you planned. Thanks for taking time to write a review. It's the best thing you can do for us and we appreciate your effort. Have a wonderful holiday season.

a wonderful birthday treat mid-week

Coppertoppe is a beautiful bed and breakfast with wonderful keepers. Bill and Sheila are so kind and thoughtful. They make cooked to order breakfast every morning and it is amazing! My boyfriend and I still rave about Sheila's pancakes. When I say they are thoughtful I mean soooo thoughtful. I have a dairy intolerance and Shiela made sure there was my specific brand of almond milk and the chocolate version of it. I also mentioned wanting cinnamon buns and she went out and got some. We stayed in the garnet suit which is beautiful and worth every penny. The bed is enormous, the view is picture perfect and the bathroom is like a privet spa. So amazing! Don't second guess yourself just stay here.

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy that you had a nice time and the weather cooperated. Autumn in New Hampshire is amazing and you never know what you will get. You were detailed in your response to our guest information questions, which makes it easy to cater to your preferences and needs. Thank you for taking time to write a review with particulars. It is the best compliment you can give us. Have a beautiful holiday season!

Loved the million dollar view from my room. Great value and very friendly inn keepers that aim to please. Breakfast is yummy and healthy. Well located near a beautiful lake. Fantastic place to take your dog.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking time to post a review. We appreciate your feedback and sharing with others. Thanks also for bringing a nice dog. We do so enjoy watching the dogs play and relax... as well as the humans. :-)

Absolutely wonderful retreat!

We had a wonderful weekend getaway with our 2 dogs. Sheila and Bill went above and beyond in accommodating us and our dogs. They made incredible breakfasts that were specifically designed to our taste and gluten allergy. The views are spectacular and Bill made sure the hot tub was at a perfect temperature for us to enjoy while it was snowing. Rowley and Griffey had the run of the Inn, their own beds, water bowls and lots of people to play with. Sheila also made special treats for them to enjoy. Overall, a wonderful experience and can't wait to return.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for posting a review on this site. Your comments are very much appreciated. We had so much fun with you and your dogs, we really look forward to seeing you again in warmer weather. Take care and enjoy the spring season.

I've been to the Coppertoppe five times and LOVE IT! Bill and Sheila are like family and I couldn't ask for a better get-a-way.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking time to post another review. We appreciate your feedback and the fun we share. You also have the nicest friends! Thanks for sharing them with us, too.

Wonderful eco-friendly experience for us (vegetarians) and our dog!

5 on January 13, 2015

My husband and I, along with our dog, enjoyed what we hope to be the first of many stays at Coppertoppe in January 2015. Sheila and Bill were so great; before we arrived Sheila spent a while getting to know all about us and our preferences, they gave us fantastic homemade breakfast meals that were healthy, full of flavor and just perfect for our vegetarian diet (there were also many great treats for our non-vegetarian dog!). They are just lovely people and we had great conversations all throughout our stay. We felt perfectly at home! The room itself was very roomy and comfortable. Sheila and Bill have put a lot of thought into their property and operations to be environmentally-sensitive, which we appreciate personally and professionally. There didn't seem to be a bad view, no matter where we were, and looking out on the near-frozen Newfound Lake during breakfast was especially lovely. All around, a great stay and we've finally found the qualities we've been looking for in a New England vacation spot - we look forward to making Coppertoppe a regular destination!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to post a review. It warms our hearts, and with temps below zero that is quite a treat. It was good that you experienced a variety of weather and enjoyed the views in sunshine as well as winter velvet. We look forward to your next visit!

Wonderful Stay at Coppertoppe Inn

4.6 on January 05, 2015

Attention to Detail is a concept that Bill and Sheila, proprietors, take very seriously. When I filled out the questionnaire before my stay, I figured that something would be missed. But everything was just perfect, from the carrot treats for my dogs, to the third pillow on my bed. The breakfast was so good and so substantial that I didn't even feel the need for lunch until late afternoon! The room had the most wonderful view of a portion of Newfound Lake - Sheila had mentioned that I would need to pull the drapes because the morning sun would be bright, but I chose to keep the drapes open and was wonderfully greeted by a joyous sun my first morning there. This inn had everything I wanted, and things I didn't even know I wanted - a peaceful stay! I am very content! Brenda

Innkeeper Response
Brenda, it was a joy to share part of the holidays with you and your darling dogs. Your stories were fascinating and your wisdom is priceless. Thank you for taking time to post a review. We hope you will come visit in summer when the pups can enjoy our giant lawn and rolling in clean, safe grass with no pesticides or chemicals. Take care and please stay in touch.
