“Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

The Cabernet Inn is an attractive inn on the north side of North Conway. Our room and bed were on the smallish side but certainly adequate.
It was a nice surprise to have considerable choice of breakfast options.
One drawback was that the hosts were surprisingly unhelpful in giving us options on what to do during our brief stay in North Conway.

Room Tip: Getting out of the lower parking lot when the inn is crowded is tricky. It is better to park in the...

My husband and I have been staying at the Cabernet Inn for years and every stay has been excellent! Bruce and Jessica are amazing. They make it feel like our home away from home. The rooms are so comfortable and clean, breakfast is amazing, and it's in a great location. Just north of the downtown area and so close to amazing skiing, hiking, and shopping. We love our annual visits and will continue the tradition as long as possible!

Room Tip: We have stayed in many rooms, but if you splurge a little, the premium rooms are extra private and h...

This B&B was absolutely amazing. The room was a great size and clean as could be. We stayed for 3 nights to explore the White Mountains region and the town of North Conway. We couldn't have been more happy with the inn and the service. Bruce and Jessica were extremely helpful and gave us some helpful advice on where to go and what to do. Had a different breakfast every morning and each one was delicious. The location is perfect to get the all of the White Mountain locations and very close to North Conway shopping and food. We stayed in Room 2 which is near the road, so we heard the minor traffic during our time in the room, but not enough to bother us much. The shower was also a bit noisy, but nothing to serious. Those minor issues are the only things I could come up with as cons to this place. If we are ever in the area again, we'll definitely be staying here again because of the peacefulness, location, and service.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road will be a little quieter, since the inn is located close to the road.

We unfortunately could only stay two nights. We found the Inn to be Very comfortable. Our room was very clean and nice. The breakfast was fabulous with several choices. The hosts were more than friendly. They had good knowledge of the area and had tons of information available on everything from menus of local eating places to where to go and what to see.
Thanks for a really nice relaxing time.

We stayed here for three nights as part of our New England tour and I was thrilled that the inn lived up to my expectations. It is beautifully presented, very clean and Bruce and Jessica are very welcoming hosts. Jessica's breakfasts are delicious, the walnut, maple syrup and cream cheese French toast is to die for ( forget the calories, you're on holiday!). We found restaurants within an easy walk but the main part of town is a short drive away. We were very kindly upgraded to the Winter Solstice room which features a fire for colder evenings, very romantic. Lovely house and perfectly located for seeing the natural beauty of the White Mountains, Bruce even has a leaflet with his own suggested itinerary for seeing as much of the natural attractions as possible, a great help.

We spent a couple of days at The Cabernet and enjoyed it immensely.
Bruce and Jessica were very friendly, but not too intrusive. This was great for us as we were taking a break from a stressful period at home so not necessarily looking to be wildly sociable!
We are pretty familiar with the area, but had not stayed at The Cabernet before. We were treated to an upgrade upon check in which is always nice! Bruce checked us in and gave us some great info and an excellent introduction to the Inn
Breakfast was excellent and there were choices to please all palates and most dietary needs (Jessica will also tailor a menu to those with more complex needs).
We enjoyed some great days riding the mountain roads and a soak in the Jacuzzi on our return. Our room was very comfortable and we truly got to relax! Thank you
We look forward to visiting again - thinking we like the idea of snowshoeing from the back door!

Room Tip: We did peek at other on occupied rooms and they all looked great (didn't go in), but if it's...

Awesome. Perfect weekend.

I narrowed down this trip to 3 different lodging options.. I wanted something where I didn't have to really think, and where we could have a quiet weekend away. I read all the reviews that gave it 5 stars and wondered how anywhere could get that sort of rating. It is totally well deserved.

We have never stayed in a B&B and didn't really know what to expect. Bruce greeted us at the door, gave us a quick tour, and showed us to our room. We got ready for dinner, met Jessica, and chatted with them a bit about dinner options in the area. They gave us a recommendation that was exactly what we were looking for.

The inn is immaculate and equipped with anything you could need. Menus to all local restaurants, directions to wherever you want to go, a full living room stocked with movies, board games, books...

No TV in the room (YAY!) so you can completely relax. The jacuzzi for 2 is amazing. The ginormous walk-in shower was a nice touch.

Breakfast.. holy cow. I love french toast. LOVE french toast. Jessica made her Texas style french toast and it was by far the best breakfast I have ever had. Ever. Everything about breakfast both days was perfect.

Most importantly - we completely felt welcomed and at home. That was weirdly one of my concerns and I worried for nothing. It was awesome.

The area itself is great - Bruce and Jessica had some terrific recommendations for hikes, shops, whatever you need.

We'd stay there again in a second. Definitely stay at the Cabernet. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks so much Bruce & Jessica!!

Room Tip: If the temps are cool enough, go with the fireplace and jacuzzi room downstairs... even if it isn...
