Colby Hill Inn Goes the Extra Mile!

5 on February 23, 2011

Hello, I keep getting blown away by the Colby Hill Inn. I proposed to my wife there in 2004 and have been back a couple times since then. The rooms are amazing! Fireplace and whirlpool tubs! The food is beyond amazing, from breakfast to dinner and even the homemade cookies they put out every day. But one thing that really impressed me this last time we went was that my wife left behind this furry head band in the living room and when we got home realized it was missing. I called and they said, "Yup we have it right here and will mail it to you asap." Three days later and here it is in my mail box. I highly recommend the Colby Hill Inn and if you are going to southern NH it is a must place to stay! All the best, Josh-

A real gem

Seven friends spent 2 nights at the Colby Hill Inn and we loved it! Very comfortable rooms, friendly and excellent service, and a delicious dinner where every dish was first rate.
