We had a wonderful time at the Wakefield Inn. We agree with the recent review Jim/Barb that this is not a standard hotel. It is an old house with all the character (and flaws) old houses have. But, it was very clean, homey, warm, and an excellent place for a relaxing weekend in the country. Even though we stayed in one of the least expensive rooms, the bed was one of the most comfortable as compared to other B&Bs or hotels and we had a wonderful view. The sheets were great too.
The room was on the back of the house and was very quiet, but there is not that much traffic on the road so I don't think the rooms at the front of the house would be a problem. We loved the wonderful wood floors, the fireplaces, and the excellent food. We made dinner reservations one night, and were very glad we did. The menu is posted ahead of time on the website. The Inn is also easy to get to, and is centrally located. Don't miss the Via Lactea farm, just down the road. It took us 30 minutes to make a 5 minute drive because we kept stopping to take photos of the amazing scenery.
Also, it bears mentioning that this was our 2nd attempt to stay at the Inn - we had a travel complication/mishap the first time, and although the owner and manager could have charged us anyway for the late cancellation, they were more than accommodating in helping us reschedule. That says a lot about the character of the people running the place. We are so glad we finally made it out for a weekend at the Inn.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask if your room has a television (our room didn't and we didn't miss it at all) or an attached bathroom.

As my wife and I entered and saw our room (the least expensive offered) we looked at each other and said, "This is not the Hampton Inn." And it wasn't. We had stayed 5 days at a Hampton Inn and found it very nice. The Wakefield Inn is NOT a Hampton Inn and doesn't try to be. But it was a pleasant surprise and we are so glad we stayed there. The breakfasts (2 days) were very good and the dinner I helped prepare with Chef Janel was really fun and educational and, if I say so myself, very, very good. Give this place and the hosts a chance and you will be glad you did. Jim (and Barb)

Room Tip: I have no idea what the other rooms were like, but our bathroom was quite small, but clean and adequate. If we come back, and we surely might, we will opt for another room.

My husband and I stayed in the Wakefield Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and we had a wonderful time. We had massages in our room (Dave is excellent!), and thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class with Janel, who is friendly and fun to chat with. I now know how to make duck that isn't overly greasy, and enjoyed our dinner immensely. We spent the evening after the cooking class chatting with another couple staying there in the dining room.

The inn is beautiful, and the grounds doubly so. It was rainy while we were there, but we did get a chance to wander out into the yard, which has a garden and a koi pond.

The Wakefield Inn was a wonderful base for visiting our favorite places. The Yankee Smokehouse in West Ossippee is about a half hour away, North Conway about an hour, Laconia (Fun Spot and Keller Haus!) also about an hour. We also discovered Wolfeboro, which is very cute.

All in all, we had a fantastic time and will definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: The David Copp room was very, very quiet.

A charming surprise. While at first glance it is a little dissapointing, as it is in a sleepy village with nothing around, it proved to be warm and charming, and we recommend it to anyone looking for confort, rest and relaxation! The breakfast was absolutely first rate.

What a treat this place was. My wife and I went up here for a few days after our wedding to relax and it turned out to be such a pleasant and clean place with reasonable prices. Janel & Gretchen make sure you are taken care of with the food and amenities. The cooking class with the Chef and Owner Janel was AMAZING and so much fun. The messages in our rooms were perfect and the breakfast in bed really was the cherry on top. It's 15 minutes to Wolfeboro and right off Rt. 16. Easy access to all eastern New Hampshire sites. It's also less then 30 mins to the Castle in the Clouds which is a much see.

Room Tip: Sanborn Room is the best room to stay in. It's huge, private bathroom, bathrobes and fireplace.
