A friend who works at a nearby summer camp recommended The Trumbull House for an overnight getaway. What a fine find! We stayed in the Yellow Room, which was a fantastic 'space' up at the top of the house. Really lovely food in the morning, and lovely folks running the place. Reminded us of our honeymoon in Ireland (stayed at many B&Bs). Highly recommended.

Lloyd is terrific. The breakfasts were amazing with several fine choices. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The living room and sitting area have everything you want including coffee and Scrabble. This place is a slam dunk!

Best Bed & Breakfast Hanover

The Trumbull House Bed & Breakfast was exceptional! The atmosphere, food, room, and service could not have been better! Breakfast was a delightfully delicious everyday with many choices to choose from. Stayed in the suite and was perfect for our party of four with two bathrooms. The Trumbull Bed & Breakfast made my visit to Hanover better than I could have imagined. Thank You!

Outstanding Stay

My spouse and I came from Virginia and stayed at the Trumbull House for 3 nights in early October. Our room was tastefully decorated, very comfortable with its king bed, quiet and private. The Innkeeper, Lloyd, greeted us every morning, and prepared wonderful breakfasts consisting of fresh fruit, warm muffins, omelettes or pancakes with bacon, and hot freshly brewed coffee. We enjoyed walking the beautiful grounds.

Great B and B close to Dartmouth campus

Very clean. Lloyd cooked breakfast to order every am and it was excellent. Coffee and tea available throughout the day. Only 10 min drive to Dartmouth campus. Great value in pretty New England setting

The third floor yellow room was a fabulous space that brought home comfort with character. I stayed for three nights and each morning I was able to choose a different breakfast choice. Lloyd was a gracious host who made me feel welcome.

Hometown Elegance

We live only about four miles from Trumbull House, pass it most every day, and are friends of the owner. We try to stay at least once a year because it really takes us away in the very best way. We love the rooms and have stayed in every one, including the detached space in the rear, the lovely décor, the library/study, the great books (on our latest stay our room had two books by Sam Snead), the excellent service, and wonderful breakfast. We always give Trumbull House our highest recommendation.

Beautiful weekend

The Trumbull House is a lovely home and has a beautiful location near Moose Mountain. Our room and all the other rooms there are lovely , private and quaint. Lloyd was a wonderful host and our breakfasts each morning were lovely. I would love to plan another trip in the Spring to utilize the grounds.

Our stay at the Trumbull house was lovely. It is beautiful and very clean and the breakfasts were outstanding. The grounds were also gorgeous. And they have the cutest dog that smiles at you when you say good morning! The innkeepers were wonderful and their warm hospitality and humor made our stay perfect. We will definitely be back.
