Rick and Charlene are gracious hosts, and their home is just lovely. Rick really went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable - from helping our girls with their snowshoes, giving us tours of the stables and providing great advice on local activities to enjoy.

We were married at the farm 1 year ago. We returned for our anniversary and enjoyed our stay. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are clean.

This B&B was OK - just probably not for us. We couldn't ride horses or take a sleigh ride which was the main reason we chose this place. Rooms were OK - but not that clean and quite cluttered, as the whole place seemed to be. Rick and Charlene did try to help us find things to do, but really didn't seem that connected with options. The breakfast was not that great either but coffee was readily available.

Staying at the Farm by the River was like staying with family :). Rick and Charlene (and their dog, Heidi) open their family home with open arms. They obviously really enjoy their chosen paths of running a B & B. They are very gracious and accommodating hosts. I personally enjoy the charm of staying at a place that feels like a family members home. There are no "airs" about them or their home. I like the charm of staying with people that treat you like family! We certainly enjoyed our first stay!
Glad you had a good time at our inn and like the fact that we have a welcoming hospitality. We are celebrating our 25th year in business and as you know offer a unique vanue with the horses.

What a perfect place! The hosts are wonderful. The rooms are quaint, not fancy, not upgraded, but perfect just the same. We had a wonderful time here with our children and will absolutely be back!

If you love the country and horses this is for you, great people great location and great horses. Make it a point to visit the horse called Luke in the barn and bring carrots for him.

We had such a nice stay! Gorgeous property and very comfortable rooms. The garden sitting area is wonderful! We enjoyed delicious breakfasts, excellent staff,and goodconversation with the charming owners. The horseback riding was our favorite!

My husband and I recently visited the White Mountains in New Hampshire. North Conway was a great place to have a "base" from where we could make multiple day trips to waterfalls, the Conway Scenic Railway, the Kancamagus Hwy, Franconia Notch State Park and many other sites. The home was warm and welcoming and felt like we had our own "house" in the mountains to come back to. Charlene and Rick were wonderful hosts, friendly, and full of suggestions for places to visit. We also enjoyed a wonderful horseback ride on property (they have 22 horses and 70 acres that run along the Saco River). I would highly recommend the Farm by the River to anyone traveling in that area!

Felt as though it was dated and needed some work. Rooms were small. Owners very hospitable and accommodating. Location was great and easy to find.

My family and I stayed for 4 nights in this B&B and used it as our home station for exploring this region. The hosts are very accommodating, informative, and available. The rooms are comfortable and the bed we had was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was served outdoors when the weather permitted. The food was outstanding. We also went on a carriage ride one day and horseback riding the other. It was not the best trail, but it was relaxing. I have no significant complaints or concerns and I would stay again at this location. I am a hard grader which is why they didn't get outstandings in all categories, but do not hesitate staying with Rick and Charlene.

A terrifically relaxing and laid back b&b on a lovely farm. Rick and Charlene are lovely and were very accomodating. Although we were disappointed they didn't have riding hacks as expected (with trotting and cantering for intermediate riders), they put us in touch with very local places who did. Very charming place, great breakfasts on the rerrace overlooking the fields and horses, and lots of rocking chairs and sun lougers for chilling out in the sun or shade. Highly recommended.

Rick, Charlene and Holly were welcoming and very helpful and their B&B was comfortable, charming and peaceful. The pony rides were a highlight of course, with plenty of beautiful places to enjoy nearby: Echo Lake, Diana's Baths and plenty of really good places to eat.

My family and I enjoyed our stay, and my two sons loved riding horses for the first time.The trail ride went around the pretty farmland and down the forest paths close to the river. The Farm is close to downtown North Conway and other major attractions. Echo Lake and Diana's Bath are nearby and are a must-visit. The breakfast was excellent, our rooms were comfortable, and our hosts were friendly and helpful.

Room was fun - had great views as promised and was clean. Mattress and bedding was comfortable. Rick has all the info you need to know - just tell him what you are looking for and he'll point you in the right direction. The property and location and beautiful and convenient!

From when we arrived until we left the service was great. Our room over looked the horses it was beautiful. The elves left my daughter a note, food was great. Just enough. As Americans we over eat, it was just right and delicious. Loved the wagon ride to. The owners are so nice and gave us a piece of the farm to remember them by. We would recommend this bed and breakfast . Close to everything I guarantee your gonna like it

Rick and Charlene could not do enough for us from arrival to departure. Wonderful people and a great experience. We will definitely come again. Ginny & Mike

We have been coming to the farm by the river for the past three years, and each visit has been exceptional. From the moment you enter, you receive a warm welcome from Rick and Charlene, and you begin to experience the delightful atmosphere of the cosiest, friendliest B&B in North Conway! We always stay in the same room, and its always been clean and well maintained. Breakfast meals are filling and healthy. Its a great feature that they offer horse riding on site, and we loved the new addition of goats to the farm! Looking forward to the next time we visit.

We had been planning a nature-filled getaway for some time and finally came upon Farm By the River. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay here—from the second we walked in we were welcomed and taken care of. The rooms are perfectly quaint, clean, and cozy and the scenery could not be beat. Breakfast in the morning was to die for and even more so when it was served out on the patio overlooking the mountains. The horses and other animals were all very friendly and a great addition to the stay—especially the goats Max and Freckles that we even got the chance to play with. Tucked away on a quiet road where you can count the number of cars that pass by in an hour while sitting on a rocking chair on the front porch, the bed and breakfast is just minutes from the center of town and tons of delicious restaurants and great shops. RIght down the road are incredible waterfalls at Diana's Baths, Echo Lake State Park, and Cathedral Ledge to tucker you out so you can come back and enjoy some time laying on the outdoor hammock. Needless to say, we will definitely be returning in the future!

The Farm was recommended to us by my husband's best friend. She raved about it so we went in August after her wedding. The best, relaxing vacation we've ever had. Charlene makes the best strawberry muffins and we met some wonderful people. We loved it so much we went back that January for our own wedding which Rick officiated. It was beautiful and both Rick and Charlene made our families feel extremely welcomed.

What a glorious time we had! We intended to stay for two nights, but fortunately were able to stay an additional night. The inn is a short distance from the center of North Conway, but in a relaxed rural atmosphere. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the stable and goats are delicious and varied. The hosts offer tips on a varitey of topics rangeing from where to eat to the many activities and scenic places available. We biked, kayaked and hiked the area. Late afternoons were spent in the garden with a glass of wine enjoying the view. We are already planning a return trip.

This was our first experience at a B&B. Myself and my two horse loving daughters had a vacation that rivaled our trip to Disney World. Charlene and Rick made us feel at home and we wanted for nothing. We rode the horses daily and the guides Sarah and Nancy were wonderful. Echo Lake and Daiana's Falls were less than five minutes away and beautiful spots to see, swim and pic nic. Shops were around the corner as well. The breakfast was great and the beds were comfy. The scenery was breathtaking. We were sad to leave and can't wait to go back in the Fall. Myself and my eleven year old twins highly recommend The Farm By the River. We created many wonderful memories there and look forward to creating more.

Farm by the River was wonderful!!! Rick & Charlene were outstanding hosts, Heidi too, and the property was breathtaking. Had so much fun riding the horses and sleigh. Such a beautiful place. Can't wait to go back in the Fall!

I stayed at The Farm and had a wonderful time! The inn keepers Charlene and Rick were the best. They made the experience even more enjoyable. The breakfast they prepared each morning was also a highlight that deserves to recognized. I highly recommend staying here and plan on going back soon! http://www.farmbytheriver.com

We would highly recommend staying at Farm by the River. There are incredibly beautiful views from the property and also on the grounds. We enjoyed a wonderful sleigh ride for four with beautiful Belgian horses and would have done more had we had more time to stay but we will surely return.

My wife and I spent last Friday and Saturday nights at The Farm. We've been here, probably 4 or 5 times, over the past 10 years. Rick and Charlene never disappoint--they're terrific! We always feel right at home when we stay here, with a fire going, snacks in the living room, great recommendations for local food and activities, and clean, comfortable rooms. And Heidi, the canine Good Will Ambassador, is a sweetheart. We generally try to stay at B&B's for our get-aways, and this is the best.

Our stay at The Farm by the River B and B was amazing. Rick and Charlene and Heidi (their friendly Weimerander) were wonderful hosts. They treated us like family. They supply maps of the area and give great suggestions of restaurants and tourist places to see. We did not get a chance to go riding, but the next time we go we hope to be able to give it a go. We had dinner at Delaney's Hole in the Wall, which is casual but has really nice food. Diana's Baths (a nearby waterfall) is just a 5 minute drive and 15 mins walk away, I suggest going to see it if you have the chance. I would suggest Farm by the River to anyone who is visiting the area. This B and B is much more secluded than the others. My boyfriend and I will be returning in the future. Thank you Rick and Charlene for a wonderful trip!

This is our third B&B experience--all in New England. This was the nicest. By that I mean that Charlene and Rick went out of their way for us, the breakfasts were outstanding and we met some really terrific people. We totally felt comfortable and had a good time. It was a lovely place! Brenda & Al Fulgieri, New Hyde Park, NY.

For our first B&B experience, we were pleasantly surprised. Innkeepers Rick and Charlene helped to put us at ease and the country charm was plentiful throughout. Adjoining stables, horseback riding, carriage rides, and even sleigh rides when the snow comes. Overall a wonderful experience and we highly recommend the Farm by the River.

Farm by the river was suggested by the local tourist info and boy did they put us on the right track! The farm is beautiful, rooms are clean and their breakfast perfect. We were made to feel so welcome by Rick, Charlene and of course who could forget beautiful Heidi. We did a trail ride on the farm horses, what a fantastic way to start the day! The trail ride was offered at a discounted rate because we were staying there, excellent value. We met another guest who has returned 4 or 5 times and we can see why. Thanks again for a perfect stay.

This was, by far, the best experience I have had with my granddaughter. Charlene and Rick could not have done more to make our visit with them a very memorable one. The accomodations, the breakfast meals we shared, and of course, the horseback riding was exceptional. The innkeepers and their staff are the tops in making their guests feel like they are welcome and at home.
4.2 on May 18, 2009
we stayed only one night but had the best room in the place. the inn keepers and the staff are so friendly. I felt like I'd known them all my lives. I enjoyed by one night stay and the horse back riding so much I plan to go back in the fall.
