“A great stay!”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Last weekend my girlfriend and I stayed in the Grant Jr. Suite at the Glynn House Inn after spending the afternoon doing some dogsledding in the area. In looking for a place to stay overnight after our dogsledding adventure, we settled on the Glynn house as it seemed to be a B+B that offered tremendous service, first-class accommodations, and a reasonable value. After staying there, our suspicions were confirmed: the Glynn House Inn was just what we were looking for.

When we arrived, Glenn welcomed us and took us for a tour of the downstairs area. There is a beautiful dining area, and a small sitting room where afternoon snacks and wine are served. We were impressed with the cleanliness and quality of the rooms and upholstery. We were pleased with Glenn's manners, friendliness, and professionalism.

Our room, the Grant Jr. Suite, was fantastic. We loved the fireplace and the double whirlpool put the room over the top! One nice thing about the Grant Jr. Suite is that it is a corner room so we had really nice natural light coming through both windows. Glenn, when he showed us our room, pointed out the space heater he plugged in so that we could immediately get the room to our desired temperature. This small gesture is a microcosm of the service and attentiveness of Glenn and the Glynn House Inn as a whole.

The wine and cheese hour was a great touch, and, had we wanted, Glenn would have kept on filling up our glasses! The next morning we went down to breakfast: a classy affair with fresh fruit plates to start, coffee and juice, delicious homemade muffins, and made-to-order entrees such as pesto poached eggs and stuffed pancakes. Our stomachs were full and our taste buds satisfied. Again, Glenn's attentiveness and table-side manner as a waiter were superb.

We were very impressed with our entire stay at the Glynn House Inn. We'll be recommending it to friends/family, and we'll certainly be back again. The only reason we gave the 'value' a 4 out of 5 is because, for us, the room was expensive; however, given the service, snack hour, breakfast, and beautiful rooms, the price makes sense.

Room Tip: It really comes down to whether or not you want a cheaper room without the fireplace/jacuzzi, or a m...

Wow! Our guest from Boston has written an incredibly detailed review of their Glynn House stay. Delivery exceptional service is one of our core objectives. We’re delighted our visitors felt that service and hospitality were first class. The Grant Junior Suite offers visitors tremendous value - elegant decor, lots of natural light, romantic fireplace plus a double whirlpool - all for $20 more than a regular bedroom.

The Romantic Glynn House Inn - situated in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains and Lakes Region - offers guests and exceptional experience. A full gluten free breakfast menu is always available. Bring your four-footed canine pal on holiday and reserve one of five pet friendly rooms. Venture away from the Inn and enjoy antiquing, art galleries, boating, fine dining, fishing, golf, hiking, historic sites, “tax free” shopping and scenic drives along tranquil country roads. Visit the Glynn House website for additional information about the Inn and local activities.

When we go away my wife and I like to be pampered. And that is how we felt at the Glynn House. We were greeted at the door with Glenn offering to carry our bags. Glenn brought us to our room and showed us how to use the fireplace and where everything was.
Breakfast, wow is all I can say. If you want service go here and stay for breakfast. When we went to eat breakfast in the morning we chose a table by the window. A perfect ending for the weekend. As soon as we sat we were given a delicious plate of fruit with a choice of juice. This was followed by Coffee and a Strawberry banana muffin. we then chose our main courses for breakfast. I had scrambled eggs with goat cheese and a side of salsa. My wife had the home made Belgium waffles. The entire breakfast had excellent taste and presentation.

If you want to impress a loved one, GO HERE.

Room Tip: The Harding room was perfect for a couples retreat.

This is the first time my wife and I had tried a bed and breakfast Inn. We had a great time this weekend at the Glynn House. The Inn is a tremendous Victorian style house. It was very clean and welcoming. It was the dead of winter and the Inn was warm and comfortable. Glen and his wife Pam were great hosts. They were very accommodating but not over bearing. Glen offered advice on things to see in the area and the breakfasts were tremendous. Pam is a great cook and the house keeping did a great job in straightening the room while we were out sightseeing. This was our 32nd wedding anniversary and my wife and I were so glad we found the Glynn House Inn. The Inn provided a very nice selection of wine and horderves from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM where we were able to meet some of the other guests at the Inn. Glenn provided advice on the local restaurants and even had their menus on hand. Our room was a two room suite that had a sitting area with a TV and Direct TV, wireless internet connectivity and a sleeping area that expanded into a bath area with a Jacuzzi and shower. The rooms were very clean and warm. It was a great winter get away and we were happy we chose the Glynn House Inn for our first Bed and Breakfast experience.....I am sure we will be back at the Glynn house again - maybe see what it is like in the summer!!

Each year, the Glynn House Inn hosts a large number of first time bed and breakfasts patrons. Virtually all are return to our property and other quality B&B’s. Why? Many first time visitors tell us their tired of “cookie cutter” chains offering impersonal service and boring food. They enjoy staying in an elegantly furnished, classic Victorian home. They appreciate the personalized concierge services we provide. They enjoy our gourmet breakfasts. Perhaps most important, our guests tell us they appreciate the genuine hospitality they experience. We’re so pleased the reviewer chose the Glynn House to celebrate their 32nd anniversary. We look forward to seeing them again.

My husband and I first stayed at The Glynn House in 2007 and have been back every year since (my husband proposed to me here in 2008! Complete with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries arranged through the inn.)This beautiful Victorian Inn is the perfect location for a weekend away. We especially love visiting in the Winter- it's so nice to come back to our room at the end of the day and sip wine by the fireplace.
Glenn, Pam, and Ingrid are such warm and welcoming hosts and do everything they can to make you feel at home. They are so kind and you can see what pride they take in the inn. No detail is overlooked. There are so many little touches (warm cookies fresh out of the oven when we check in, tea/coffee waiting outside the room every morning, robes in the room, little journals in each room where guests write notes about their stay- just to name a few). The rooms are beautifully decorated (we have stayed in the Monroe Suite and Grant Jr. Suite) and very cozy.
Glenn is so helpful with planning and booking any area activities (snowmobiling, sleigh rides, etc.-some places even offer a discount if you book through the inn) and can make dining reservations for you as well. He is very knowledgeable about the area and makes great suggestions. You really can just relax and not worry about a thing during your stay. If you prefer to relax in your room, there is a great movie library in the kitchen to borrow DVDs.
The innkeepers host wine and horderves in the evening where you can mingle with them and other guests in the parlor. Breakfast is just amazing- coffee/tea, fresh juice, fruit, warm muffins, and your choice of a sweet or savory meal. The stuffed french toast is my personal favorite!
When booking your stay, there is also the option to add special touches. We enjoy the welcome tray which includes wine, cheese, and crackers. Definitely check out the options on their website- it's a nice way to make your stay even more special.
The Glynn House is a very special place in a great location (so many options for activities, shopping, dining). We highly recommend this B&B to everyone we know and are already looking forward to our next visit!

The Glynn House Inn is a very special place for many of our guests - proposals, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays - are all particularly important events. Since most of us live busy, stress filled lives - a getaway in spectacular New Hampshire can provide a much needed opportunity to relax and ‘recharge batteries’. It’s always satisfying for the Inn’s owners to have guest return again and again. Thanks so much to the guest from Boston for sharing their experience with other travelers.

My hubby and I stayed last night at Glynn House Inn for our second time and we enjoyed every moment. The inn keepers are gracious hosts that truly enjoy what they do. Our stay lacked nothing,we had everything we wanted and the inn keepers even helped my husband surprise me with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in our room. That just reaffirmed my belief that Glynn House Inn is the best of the best in NH,there is nowhere else we want to stay. They helped us book a snowmobiling adventure at a discounted price and we had a blast.
The inn is located just minutes 10 from the Common Man restaraunt,in fact we walked to the restaraunt and as we walked back it was snowing,it was the perfect ending to a wonderful weekend.

We enjoyed ourselves so much that we booked our trip for next month before we checked out,see you on March 1 & 2 Glenn.

Thanks so much to the return guests from Southern NH, who were kind enough to share their experience with other travelers. Many of our guests find our ‘special touches’ are a nice way to compliment their stay. The champagne and chocolate covered strawberries package, which the reviewer ordered, is a particular favorite. During the winter months, Inn guests get terrific discounts on snowmobiling tours, which are also terrific fun. What better compliment to than having guests book their next visit before they walk out the door.

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!
