My husband, 4-year-old daughter and I made a return trip to the Buttonwood this year after enjoying our stay there so much last December--and it was just as wonderful the second time around. Paula is an excellent cook. Both she and Bill are wonderful conversationalists, and really care about the house as well as their guests. It feels more like visiting extended family than visiting "an Inn." House is clean and nicely decorated, but not "too nice" where you're afraid to touch anything. There are baked treats out each afternoon, and an ever-present assortment of teas and hot cocoa. The den downstairs is well stocked with board games and movies. And the rooms are cozy and comfortable. We plan to make the Buttonwood part of our annual pre-Christmas tradition.

Our spur-of-the-moment hiking trip brought us to Buttonwood Inn and we're so happy to have discovered it. The public rooms are a delight, our bedroom was spacious, super-comfortable and thoughtfully stocked with toiletries, carafes of water, flashlights, etc. Paula's breakfast, while way too big, were exquisitely prepared, worthy of a Relais et Chateau. Bill was very knowledgeable about area hikes. We can't wait to return during ski season, but really, we recommend visiting the Buttonwood Inn on Mt. Surprise anytime for a romantic getaway anytime!

The INN is a wonderful relaxing experience off the beaten path..yet close to all the features of North Conway and the Mt. Washington area. Our hosts made us feel at home. They provided helpful touring tips and dining suggestions. The INN breakfast was gourmet and professionally served. We would like to return in the future!!

The inn is just a few minutes away from the bustle of downtown North Conway and the seclusion of hiking trails up Hurricane Road. You can hear the buzzing of the bees during the day and see the stars out of your window at night. We were warmly greeted by Bill who gave us a tour of the Inn. There were people in the common area playing the guitar and singing and when we ran into Paula she commented that it was such a treat to have live entertainment right here! The room was cozy, clean, and had a little bathroom that was supplied with everything from q-tips to a hair dryer. For breakfast Paula prepared delicious food while Bill graciously served us. During our stay Bill and Paula became grandparents! While eating breakfast, Bill came around to all of our tables, smiling, as he shared a picture of their new addition with us! On their recommendation we found a nice place to eat dinner and found a great hiking trail near their home. Their "rec room" in the basement is supplied with numerous games, a gigantic tv, countless videos and the fridge is clean. I would definitely stay at the Buttonwood Inn in the future.

As it was our second visit to the Buttonwood, the souvenirs came back as vivid and sweet as it was 21 years ago. Everything was perfect, the room, the delicious breakfasts and late afternoon treats, the suggestions they kindly gave us to enjoy our vacations, the place itself so quiet in a such beautiful nature and at only 5 minutes from downtown North Conway, but most of all for the liberty we felt (we could use almost any space) and the kindness of the inkeepers Paula and Bill (they even introduced us the dogs as we requested). We highly recommand this place to everyone who loves nature and quietness

This was our first experience at a Bed & Breakfast. Both Bill and Paula are wonderful people as also very hospitable innkeepers. Our room was spacious and cozy. We enjoyed the sitting area in our room as also the large bathroom. The Inn is very clean and has a very homey feeling. We relaxed on the front porch and in the backyard and enjoyed listening and watching nature. The hummingbirds are amazing and plentiful. Bill has great suggestions for places to see and where to eat. Paula cooks wonderfully. Breakfast and the evening snacks were delicious. A great get away for a few days.

The first thing that strikes you about Buttonwood is that it's not located on a main drag. Situated at the end of a side road, it's QUIET here. Perfect for relaxing. And yet, it's actually located very close to the main roads, so you're getting the best of both worlds: peace and quiet, yet easy access to the downtown and local highways. Bill and Paula are excellent, accommodating hosts that saw to our every need. Paula puts together a fantastic breakfast, and once they realized that we are big coffee fans, that coffee carafe stayed full at all times, ready for us to indulge. They were also helpful in our planning some hikes to local areas of interest, even making sure that we had bug spray. There was also an easy to find notebook binder with ideas for restaurants and shops, AND discount coupons. The room was lovely, comfortable, and kept meticulously clean. The inn itself is lovely and has lots of things for guests to try out. Overall, the stay was very enjoyable, and we'll definitely be back, as we've added this to our list of "Favorite Inns".

My girlfriend and I came to New Hampshire for the weekend to do some hiking and relaxing to get away from the hustle and bustle of Boston. The Buttonwood Inn is more than we could have asked for. The location is ideal. Minutes away from North Conway and great hiking trails. The breakfast that Paula prepares is amazing and fuels you up for a day of adventures. The waffles melt in your mouth. Paula and Bill are amazing host and we look forward to going back in August
