Wonderful experience!

5 on October 12, 2018

We stayed at the Buttonwood for a few nights in October. It was all around a very pleasant experience. From the scents of Paula's baking, the wonderful cozy atmosphere of the fireplaces and soft pleasant background music, to the cleanliness, and the quiet, and of course, the extremely pleasant and courteous hosts, Paula and Bill. This all made our stay one they will bring us back again.

Great Second Stay at Buttonwood

4.4 on September 04, 2018

We enjoyed our second stay at Buttonwood Inn with our nine-year-old son. The location is private, quiet, and scenic yet central to downtown North Conway and recreation; rooms and common areas are clean and comfortable; homemade breakfast and afternoon snack are excellent. Buttonwood offers an outdoor pool, in addition to a private recreation room for media and play. Bill and Paula are friendly, helpful, and accommodating.


Best B&B

Bill and Paula are the perfect hosts. The Inn is immaculate and the grounds are well kept. Special attention is given to every little detail. The sit down breakfast prepared by Paula every morning is over the top!


A quiet retreat

The Buttonwood Inn is a rare find in the ever changing world of personal accommodation. Bill and Paula are the perfect hosts and deliver exceptional value with both the rooms at the Inn and the service that they provide. If in this area and looking for the ideal retreat, the Buttonwood is the place to stay.


Beautiful Inn

4.4 on August 13, 2018

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Buttonwood Inn for two nights in August. Our room was very clean and well-appointed. The innkeepers were available for questions and friendly conversation. There were several common areas in the home that we took advantage of - to drink tea and relax or to watch a little TV. The food was delicious and overall we had a very pleasant experience. We hope to be able to return to the inn and the area of North Conway someday as there was much to see and do there and our stay was too short. Thank you Bill and Paula for sharing your lovely home!


Great place to relax

4.8 on July 26, 2018

We thoughly enjoyed our stay at the Buttonwood Inn. Bill and Paula were wonderful hosts. We were looking for a B&B to stay for our 30th wedding anniversary and we found the perfect place. Bill and Paula do everything first class from the food and rooms to the amenities. If we have the chance to visit the white mountains again, we already know where we would stay.


You will LOVE your stay here!

Welcoming, comfortable , tastefully decorated Inn with beautiful grounds. Complete with in ground pool, hot tub and hiking trails. Bills and Paula were the perfect hosts. Attention to every detail. Amazing breakfasts, helpful tips on what to do and where to go.


Fortunate to have found the Buttonwood Inn...

5 on July 06, 2018

Close to the village of North Conway, but enough outside of town to offer peace and relaxation. Enjoyed the large in ground pool and the beautiful room we stayed in. Bill's suggestions for local restaurants and use of the Valley Pass for discounted meals provided us with great dinners at a well-known steak house and a seafood restaurant that more than satisfied our appetites. We looked forward to Paula's gourmet breakfasts and afternoon treats. Definitely a place we look forward to visiting again.


A Gem

5 on May 27, 2018

My wife and I have been going to the North Conway/Jackson area for 25 years. We have stayed in many of the Inns and Hotels in the area. We happened on the Buttonwood Inn while searching for something slightly out of the way. The Buttonwood is a gem. The Inn is loaded with charm. The room was large and clean and very quiet. The breakfast was delicious as was the afternoon snack served at 5:00 PM. As we were checking out we already made our reservations for a foliage trip in October.

About the innkeepers

Bill and I both worked in the corporate world in New Jersey. Bill was an industrial engineer by training and managed staff in production plants and retail product facilities. I went to cooking school to become a chef and also obtained a degree in food service management. I worked in hospitality and took a detour for a time, working in the pharmaceutical industry as a marketing analyst. During those years working in corporations, I yearned to get back to my passion of cuisine and food preparation
