EXCEPTIONAL! The Ballard House Inn

5 on September 29, 2014

I stayed at The Ballard House Inn while on business. I stay in hotels and felt i needed a night of homey comfort. I received more than what I expected. My hosts Lynn and Brian made me feel like this was my home. The accommodations were very clean and very nice and tastefully decorated - I felt at home. In the morning Lynn and Brian prepared a very delicious two-course breakfast. It was a definite departure from the typical hotel and certainly a bed and breakfast that is worth going back to!

Brian and Lynn made us feel right at home, a very nice couple, who go above and beyond to provide extras not found at other B&B's.


Great view.

Traffic was particularly noisy and we are not used to a soft bed. Wonderful dinner recommendation, very helpful with our continued travels.


Review of Ballard House Stay Week of September 7th, 2014

5 on September 15, 2014

This was a quaint bed and breakfast. The entire facility was clean and inviting. Brian and Lynn were very nice and offered good suggestions for local attractions. The breakfasts were fantastic! Will recommend to friends and family.


Best B&B Experience Ever!

5 on September 11, 2014

Lynn and Brian exude hospitality -- they are charming, witty, caring and attentive. The House itself is a history lesson you can sleep in -- with a view that alone is worth the price of admission. Everything was immaculate -- obviously the result of a great attention to detail. Snacks and drinks are ever-present, and the breakfast was wonderful and relaxed --and I noticed that they cater to all of their guests 21st century dietary requirements. Let them direct you to nearby Rattlesnake Mountain. A 20-30 minute hike will give you a view that just may make you decide to settle down in New Hampshire.

Country inn with spectacular view and cozy sitting rooms


Relaxing and Wonderful stay!

5 on August 25, 2014

This was our first Bed and Breakfast - I may never stay at at hotel again! The 1783 Inn was gorgeous - 12" floor planks upstairs - beautiful details! All of the rooms - our suite and all the common rooms were immaculate! The porches were so restful - the lemon blueberry bundt cake, vegetarian lasagna for breakfast (filling and delicious) I can't wait to go back!


Charming

4.2 on August 22, 2014

My husband and I stayed here one night for a wedding. We were pleased with how clean and updated the room was. We were a little early upon arrival but were able to check in early and Brian and Lynn showed us around. We had some time to kill so we enjoyed some complimentary wine and sat out back on the porch swing. It was so peaceful looking at the amazing view. Breakfast was delicious and our hosts were great!! I wish we could have stayed longer!!


Perfect B and B in NH!

4.6 on August 22, 2014

What a fantastic stay! Lynn and Brian are exquisite and entertaining hosts. They provide a clean, comfortable and inviting inn. They take a genuine interest in your vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed our daily chat with them. Breakfast is wonderful! Lynn cooks the savory and Brian the sweet. We had a tasty egg dish with garlic home fries one day and blueberry pancakes with sausage on another day. Newton, the giant golden retriever, is a delight! When we came back in the evening we enjoyed a complimentary glass of wine and homemade cookies. We felt like we were at a relative's home as we ascended the stairs to our suite each night. Can't wait to go back to the see the gorgeous view from the back porch. Highly recommended!


Vacation in Meredith

Lynn and Brian are great hosts. Our room was perfect as was our breakfasts for our 2 day stay. We had a beautiful porch which looked down upon the Valley. The complimentary wine wasn't bad either. We had great conversations with fellow guests while we were there. We will certainly visit again.
