The Atwood Inn

71 Hill Road Route 3A, Franklin, NH 03235-9361 USA (Show map)


Candles in the windows will welcome you to our charmingly romantic brick federal colonial inn (circa 1820). Seven spacious rooms, four with working fireplaces, all with private baths and comfy beds, are furnished with antiques. Awaken refreshed to a full hearty breakfast before setting out to enjoy the many activities the region has to offer. Complimentary refreshments await you upon your return (or whenever you wish). Stroll the wooded area around our property, enjoy our quiet, bird population. See our website at atwoodinn or contact us directly.

Highly recommended

The Atwood is a very pleasant, traditional bed and breakfast with many positive features. Proprietors, Sandi and Fred, are friendly, kind and helpful. We really enjoyed meeting them. The Inn itself is conveniently located for anyone visiting the NH Lakes region. Our room on ground floor was spacious, and the breakfasts were wonderful. Despite my daily resolution, I could not resist those homemade scones! And some refreshments were always available during the day. Inn is also very clean, and grounds are attractive. Highly recommended!

Awesome Stay

We truly enjoyed our weekend at The Atwood Inn. Both Sandi & Fred were very friendly and accommodating. Their recommendations for sightseeing and dinners were wonderful. We felt very comfortable during our stay because of the hospitality, cleanliness and the room accommodations. The breakfasts were delicious! You have to try her scones!

Antiques galore

Great antique 1850 house with tasteful antiques & reproductions. Friendly hosts who went out of their way to make stay comfortable. Peaceful country setting yet close to action of Newfound Lake

Historic and fun

we stayed for the 1st time at the inn but were surrounded by others who were return guests. The inn keepers were friendly and interesting and relaxed while offering suggestions and making their breakfast dining room a place to linger after the great breakfast was consumed.

Couldn't Ask for Nicer Innkeepers!

We found Sandi and Fred to be extraordinary B&B hosts. Both were very friendly and accommodating, making us feel comfortable and welcome to be their guests. We enjoyed the stories they shared with us of their family and travels. The room was pleasantly furnished though the two beds were on the soft side. Breakfast was served "community table" style which encouraged guests to get to know each other a bit while enjoying a meal of fruit salad, eggs, sausage, and Sandi's signature scones. We would look forward to another stay here!

Home from home!

We were told about the Atwood by friends. It was all they said it was – a real home-from-home! The rooms are clean, comfortable and cosy, and the welcome warm and sincere. And as for Sandy’s breakfasts – they are legendary. She cooks up an amazing plateful, different every day, then we had to find room for her freshly-made scones! If you are in the area, you must book a room. If you’re not in the area, MAKE A DETOUR!!!

We stayed at the Atwood Inn in July 2009 and again in August 2010 while visiting family on Webster Lake. Sandi and Fred are most welcoming and always go the extra mile to accommodate you. The breakfasts are delicious - especially Sandi's scones and she even shares the recipe with you! The rooms are spacious and we are very comfortable there.

Amazing B&B!

My husband and I had such a great time at the Maria Atwood Inn. It was classy, comfortable and clean. Sandi and Fred take very special care of their home and their guests. We didn't want to leave. The breakfasts are amazing and the scones are delicious. The innkeepers are so kind. Don't hesitate to stay here. This B&B is truly fantastic!

Awesome B&B

The Maria Atwood Inn is a treasure! I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay. Wonderful breakfast in such quality surroundings and furnishings. The hosts really go the extra mile for their guests.

Wonderful getaway to relax

4.6 on June 28, 2010

A beautiful place. Sandi & Fred could not be friendlier or more helpful with suggestions and directions to places of interest. A very large yard for walking and relaxing, more books to read than a library, quiet areas to sit and ... Not a single negative, or even average thing to report. Could not ask for a better place to stay
