The inn was okay. Not great, not terrible, but the service was horrible. There were small nuisances, like to sign in the room that mentions hors deauvres nightly between 5 - 7, yet nothing to be seen. Also, the inconsistent heat. But the biggest problem was the rude hosts and the scam they have set up with their "special discounts."

We booked our stay as part of a special discount described on their website - book within 24 hours of arrival, and receive a 10% discount (http://www.glynnhouse.co…). We tried to book it through their website, but it wouldn't take the reservation, stating that it could not book same day (even though that is the nature of the special) so we booked through expedia. The inn would not honor the discount, even though it states nowhere that it must be booked through them directly. The worst part is they were extremely rude to us when we just asked about the discount, raising their voice and, indicating we should have called to book it (even though nowhere does it state that), and literally insulting us. My wife cried on the way home because the whole scene was so disturbing...nice way to end a getaway.

Rude hosts. I've disputed the charge with my credit card company. For a mediocre place, not worth dealing with their scam. Worst customer service ever. Beware of their surprise charges on your credit card.

A regrettable minority of visitors believe Inn policies do not or should not apply to them. A very limited number of guests threaten property owners and staff with damaging reviews, if owner’s don’t yield to extraordinary demands. The review “Beware of Rude Hosts and Scam” was written because the reviewers insisted they should be exempt from policies - “special offers only apply to new bookings made directly with the Inn” - and threatened damaging repercussions if the innkeepers didn’t submit to their demands. Other comments in the review are malicious fiction.

This was our first B & B stay, and we are so happy we chose this place to stay at for our weekend vacation. The innkeepers are not only knowledgeable of the area, but they are incredibly friendly and have stories and experiences to keep you entertained for hours. Each morning, there is coffee and tea outside your door, incredible homemade food for breakfast, wonderful suggestions for activities during the day, wine and snacks in the evening, but also no pressure to partake. If you want a quiet romantic stay, you can have that. If you want to visit and talk and meet people, you can have that as well. We are so glad we stayed here. This was the perfect place for our relaxing weekend getaway, and we 100% recommend to anyone. Service and kindness you won find anywhere else. Enjoy the breakfast pastries!

Thanks so much to the guests from Carver, MA, who were gracious enough to share their experience at the Glynn House Inn with other travelers. Many of our guests return again and again because they enjoy our delicious breakfasts; insist on uncompromising service; and appreciate the genuine hospitality our innkeepers provide . The historic Inn affords the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. The Inn is also well positioned for those who enjoy spectacular scenery and outdoor recreation.

My Boyfriend and I cam up for snowmobiling, sort of a git to one another for Christmas. We had an amazing time, loved everything from the comfortable bed to the Wine and hors doeuvres social hour giving you an opportunity to socialize with other guests. While the only serve breakfast the food was amazing. Glenn the innkeeper was so helpful and had many suggestions of things for you to do during your stay. We loved it here and will definitely be back

Snowmobiling is a popular winter recreation activity in New Hampshire. Glynn House guests receive 20% + OFF normal rates too. Back at the Inn, our evening social hour has been popular for years. Guests enjoy chilling out in front of the fireplace, drinking a glass - or two - of wine, and sampling delicious hors d’oeuvres or cheeses. We’re delighted the guests from Oxford, MA had a wonderful time and look forward to their return.

My wife and I spent part of the Christmas holidays at the Glynn House Inn, and sharing in that stay were my 16 year old daughter and her 16 year old friend.

We had a terrific experience. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Each day begins with a choice of excellent breakfasts which were fresh, hearty and healthy. Over breakfast,our host Glenn Heidenreich was very helpful in suggesting activities for the day, places to eat, and even assisted us by booking reservations.

Our three days flew by and we look forward to returning. Even our teenagers enjoyed the stay and managed to put the cell phones away in order to participate in all that there was to do. The Glynn House Inn is conveniently located in a beautiful part of New Hampshire and offers a most pleasant base to explore the Lakes and White Mountain region. The owners could not be more accommodating and helpful to their guests.

Room Tip: Visit the website to appreciate the options that the variety of rooms will offer.

A ‘big’ thank you to the family from Cleveland, Ohio who took the time to share their holiday season travel experience with others. We’re delighted the entire family group enjoyed the Inn and surrounding area. NH’s White Mountains and Lakes Region really do offer a huge selection of recreation options, spectacular scenery and great dining. Everything is really accessible too. Our room options – bedrooms, suites and a self catering apartment offer choices with different décor, amenities and price points to suit every discerning traveler.

My fiance and I recently stayed at the Glynn House for my 30th birthday. It was a beautiful Inn located in a small town in the White Mountains section of NH. The Inn was decorated beautifully for Christmas. Our room was on the main floor of the house and was very romantic with a fireplace and whirlpool tub. The bed was extremely comfortable and relaxing. Our Inn keeper Glenn was very kind and we enjoyed wonderful conversations with him during our check-in and the next day at our breakfast. The breakfast menu had great choices and we really loved their homemade raspberry and white chocolate muffins (I'm kicking myself for leaving before asking Glenn for the recipe!). Our stay was wonderful and I would highly recommend this Inn for any couple looking for a romantic getaway in the White Mountains.

The Glynn House Inn is a popular venue for birthday celebrations. Birthdays are special and warrant an exceptional experience. We’re delighted our guests from NH enjoyed their stay in the Monroe Suite. It’s a particularly elegant room with wood flooring and fireplace surround plus a bubbling double whirlpool bath and romantic fireplace. Our gourmet breakfast choices are ‘limited’ to 12 selections plus homemade muffins, fresh fruit, juices and hot breakfast beverages. Recipes are on are website. Thanks so much for telling other travelers about your birthday getaway!

My girlfriend and I are frequent B&B stayers. So much so that I can't recall the last time we've stayed at a conventional hotel. Glynn House is on our very short list of all time favorites. Superb breakfasts, lovely rooms, and a great location are all reasons we love this place, but most of all it is the personality and feeling that the innkeepers add that make it a favorite. Glenn, Pamela and Ingrid really love their job and it shows. Another nice touch at Glynn house is the preprandial wine and cheese in their gorgeous parlor in front of the fireplace (we go winters.) We love talking with other guests and somehow conversation is never scarce. Glenn is expert at keeping it going, but I think guests are so relaxed that it comes naturally, anyway. Honestly, I believe Glenn is happiest when he has thought of another way to make your vacation more enjoyable (reservations, activity suggestions, best hikes, restaurants, you name it.) We love the outdoors, and we love New Hampshire, and we would never think of staying anywhere else when we go.

Many thanks to our guests from Brooklyn who’ve taken the time to share their experience with other travelers. Our location in the heart of NH’s White Mountains and Lakes Regions is absolutely perfect for anyone who likes the outdoors. Our guests continue to rave about our delicious gourmet breakfasts – 12 + entrée choices, fresh fruit, homemade muffins and gallons of tasty coffee. Lots of guests, including this couple, tell us how much they enjoy the evening wine & cheese social hour. It really is a nice opportunity to meet other visitors who often have similar interests.

Our stay at Glynn Inn was great. We went there during Christmas, it was very quite which was good for relaxing. The suite we stayed was fantastic with a fireplace and a whirlpool tub. It was snowy too, so it was really romantic...Everything we need was provided by our kind host, Glenn. He was very nice, we had small conversations while having breakfast and we enjoyed it. The breakfast was really delicious, even my 18 months old daughter who is really a picky eater and doesn't eat much, finished up her plate. We need to take the recipe of that scrambled egg, we couldn't replicate it at home again lol... I already start recommending it to my friends, we would definitely stay there again, I am glad that we found this gem in New Hampshire.

The Christmas visitors who wrote this review nicely illustrate why young families enjoy the Glynn House too. Whilst they enjoyed a romantic fireplace in the luxurious Roosevelt Suite, their young daughter played with her toys on the rug in front of the fireplace. A breakfast menu with lots of choices makes it easy to satisfy the most finicky eater, even those less than two years old. Snow covered New Hampshire landscapes really are picture postcard perfect and easily accessible for visitors – like the couple who wrote this review – who reside in the Boston area.
