Cosy B&B we felt at home

4.0 on March 25, 2015

We had a very nice stay in Mary Anne's house. She' s a very good host....she made the best pancakes we've ever tried. Unfortunately, our stay was short, we hope we can come back in the future. We saw during breakfast very interesting little birds, we had never seen before...We can't remember their name

We had a very nice stay at the Mt. Washington Bed and Breakfast. The house was charming and comfortable and the innkeeper Mary Ann was very friendly. We slept well, ate well, and had a terrific visit.

Bicknell's Thrush tour

5 on June 19, 2014

We came for the Bicknell's Thrush tour. Mary Ann checked the time for us, and prepared a very good breakfast-to-go. We returned after the early morning tour up Mt Washington (got the bird!) to an even better full breakfast. We spent the rest of the day doing more birding and touring the area, eventually returning to a comfortable room, a good night's sleep, and another great breakfast. Mary Ann is a friendly, helpful host.

New England Charm

4.4 on September 23, 2013

The Mt. Washington Bed and Breakfast was such a special treat for us. The inn is quaint and the service excellent. MaryAnn, the Inn Keeper, is a fantastic cook; breakfast was out of this world. Location is good for summer and winter sports. Sarah and William B.

Great inn

5 on September 13, 2013

We have stayed twice at the Mt. Washington B&B, and it is great. It's a great house, old (historic!) but in very good condition, with lots of personal touches. The innkeeper, Mary Ann, is one of the friendliest people I have met, and bends over backward to accomodate her guests. Excellent breakfasts as well, and a great location for exploring Pinkham Notch on the quieter side of the White mountains. Highly recommend.

Mt. Washington Bed & Breakfast A Hidden Gem

5 on March 11, 2013

The Mt. Washington Bed & Breakfast is my preferred place to stay when traveling in New Hampshire. It is clean, quiet and it feels like returning home for the weekend rather than just checking into hotel accommodations. Mary Ann's cooking is top notch and she does everything possible to make sure your stay is both pleasant and memorable. The Mt. Washington Bed & Breakfast is a hidden gem of the White Mountains!

Loved everything about it

5 on January 05, 2013

My husband and I stayed here last July and had a wonderful time. We were supposed to go four years ago but my husband ended up in the hospital and the trip was postponed due to his health. Mary Ann was awesome. She held our deposit for us, and kept in touch with us all of that time. When we finally met her in person, she seemed like an old friend. The breakfasts were fabulous and the suite was very comfortable and quiet. It was our first time back in New England in 27 years, and exactly what we had missed all of that time. I highly recommend the Mt. Wash. B & B and hope to return soon.

Incredible Value and Charm!

What a wonderful B & B! Can't wait to plan my next visit! Mary Ann provides all that you expect of a northern New England B & B. Went to do some snow shoeing and skiing in the area. Every amenity is exceptional with the personal care and attention one would expect at a 5 star resort.

Wonderful Time

4.6 on October 14, 2011

We stayed at Mt. Washington B&B for a couple nights. We three sisters stayed from the Pacific Northwest. First of all the rooms were quite comfortable. We spent our day "Leaf Peeping" so were only around for early morning and evening. Mary Ann gave lots of interesting info about the area and recommended the backroad driving philosophy and we agreed with her. We saw the heart of the area and received a real taste of the countrysides. She recommended places for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed her advice there as well. Her breakfasts and snacks are wonderful!! We were even thinking about returning for an extra night after our Vermont tour, but didn't end up in the Shelburne area. We highly recommend her hospitality and say "Thanks" to her for a fun time for our first visit to New Hampshire.
