Great room - perfect for a night after skiing nearby! Wonderful hosts and amazing breakfast. Our kids (aged 8 and 10) loved talking to Sandy and Fred. Very clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated and updated. We are already planning another weekend to ski and stay with them.

This is one of the most delightful B and B we have stayed in. Sandy and Rock are wonderful hosts and the house is full of character. Franklin town is run down but Tilton has some great eating places .

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The room was spacious and comfortable, the breakfasts were especially enjoyable, and the hosts (Sandi and Fred) went out of their way to make us feel at home. In addition to serving some of the best breakfasts we've enjoyed in years of traveling, Sandi and Fred engaged all their guests in great conversation, something...

This is a lovely inn with friendly hosts, beautiful decor and large updated bathroom with lots of water pressure on the third floor. The breakfast was honestly the best I've ever had at a B&B. I will definitely go back there if I'm ever in the Franklin area.

We stayed two nights at the Atwood B&B in the Webster room. The bed was comfortable, room was nice and loaded with character. Our only complaint was the bathroom... quite small and the tiny stall shower had some plumbing/flow issues, perhaps understandable with a 200 year old house. The hosts were very gracious and breakfast was marvelous, especially the much-discussed...

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that the shower head let go during your stay. We had quite a mess on the floor below before that was resolved, but you were very considerate about the problem. It is true that the Webster bathroom (especially the shower) is a bit tight. We will put you in a room that...

The inn is very well done, breakfasts were superb......and what great homemade scones! The innkeepers were very accommodating, even carrying our heavy suitcase to the third floor for us. We would stay there again......Military discount......

Thank you for a nice review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. The scones have been a favorite for some time. Guests are disappointed if something other than the scones are present at breakfast, but I have to say, it sure would be great to have a good old fashioned blueberry muffin for once!!
