Discover a quiet wonderful New Hampshire inn - with a view that goes for miles. This inn is is not only a pleasure to experience, but solid, in good working order, and comfortable (including the bed). The owner, John, is super competent - an excellent cook (breakfast), beautiful gardens and spacious lawns, a swimming pool perfectly located to see for miles, plus two clay tennis courts. Coffee is ready at 6:00 a.m.; breakfast is between 8 and 9 a.m.
This Inn is in the middle of the country (trees and meadows) away up on a substantial hill, yet with access to a great well-mailntained beautiful country golf course (<10-minute drive), fine country dining at several locations within twenty minutes, plus swimming at Purgatory Falls (<30-min drive, plus a 15-min easy hike on a good trail; best in late spring or early sumer). Despite having 13 excellent rooms, the inn is quiet. John's marketing efforts (he appears to be the owner) appear to be minimal. Do not be turned off by John's abrupt manner; he runs a first-class establishment, means well, and beneath his somewhat gruff exterior is super friendly.
The nearby Hancock Inn serves an excellent dinner. The golf club does a fine job for both lunch and dinner. The internet WiFi (no charge) is responsive. Our three-night stay was thus a class act. John know the area, and goes out of his way to clearly answer questions, including drawings and concise directions
Best Day: A slow relaxing breakfast, bag a lunch at Wilton, swim at Purgatory Falls (just east of Wilton), drive to Peterborough, browse at bookstore (0n School Street), a quick nap in the shade at the adjacent park next to the river, dinner adjacent at the Waterhouse Restaurant (riverside table; fine dining), an evening show at the Peterborough Players playhouse, then return the The Inn at Crotchet Mountain via the Hancock Inn in Hancock, where we stopped for a nightcap.
