123 North Main Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 6 Wolfeboro B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 August 2009

Like another reviewer we accidentally stubled on this inn near the center of Wolfeboro as it doesn't have a website. We were a little apprehensive not knowing the Inn or Wolfeboro. From the moment we stepped across the door to the moment we left we could not have been more welcome, our hosts Bob and Barb were simply delightful and looked after us so well.
Barb's breakfasts are just fabulous, the rooms are immaculately presented and the whole house is charming.

If you are in the Wolfeboro area be sure to check out 123 North Main you will not regret it.

Bob and Barbara Branscombe have created a very special place at 123 North Main. Barbara is a former antiques dealer, and it shows in the museum-quality furnishings and art that discretely adorn both the common areas and the guest rooms. Bob and Barbara have mastered the innkeeper’s art of making complete strangers feel like long-lost friends. My wife and I were traveling with our 12-year old son, and we might have expected caution about their furnishings to make them standoffish with him, but instead they treated him like their own favorite grandson. If you want company, Bob and Barbara have a wealth of personal stories to share, advice, and information about the area. At the same time, they encourage you to enjoy the ambiance of their home in privacy when you’re ready to be alone. They personally attend to you during the lavish breakfast served in the sunny little room overlooking carefully-landscaped grounds that extend behind the house and trail off into what looks like a deep forest. It’s surprising then that you can turn right around and exit the front door only a short walk from active downtown Wolfeboro. I managed to leave a single sock behind in our room, and it was returned to me the next day through the mail, accompanied by a friendly note – indicative of both the personal touch and attention to detail these folks bring to their business. 123 North Main is not inexpensive, but that’s because it doesn’t have to be, and we found it to be an excellent value.

This is our third year up in Wolfeboro. We look forward to coming to this charming town all year. The only thing missing was a high end Bed and Breakfast. Little did we know that it was under our nose the whole time.This year are stay was made complete when we entered the wonderful home at 123 Main Street. We were greeted by a most charming, accomodating couple, Bob and Barbara. The home and rooms are immaculate! Breakfast in a very inviting sunny veranda was top notch! The gardens are out of an English countryside. Coffee or tea available all day with daily fresh baked goods displayed in a cozy library. By the end of the weekend, we felt like we were leaving our family. We already booked room #1 for next year. Don't miss a wonderful Bed and Breakfast experience and a chance to meet two really special people.

I have been staying at 123 N. Main St. intermittently for approximately 6 years now. I prefer B&B's two hotels, and I have stayed at B&Bs around the world over the last 30 years or so.

Bob and Barbara, the proprietors of 123 N. Main St., are friendly and gracious hosts who keep their place immaculate. I am very fussy about cleanliness and off smells and the like. I feel completely at home with Bob and Barbara, because they are even more perfectionistic than I am. The rooms are charming and could not be cleaner and neater. Year after year, everything seems new; I'm not sure how they accomplish that, but it's true.

But the best thing about 123 N. Main St. is Barbara's breakfasts. With Bob serving as waiter in a sun-filled breakfast room, you have your choice of two gourmet breakfast menus each morning. To give an example: on my last stay, I chose fresh orange juice, fresh coffee, delicious croissants accompanied by Barbara's homemade strawberry rhubarb preserves, broiled grapefruit topped with a mini scoop of sherbet and mint leaves, an Italian frittata with artichokes, and an exceptional ham steak.

If you are going to Wolfeboro, you would be well advised to book a room with Bob and Barbara well in advance. This is the best B&B in Wolfeboro area (I know this well from experience), and it fills up quickly well in advance of peak dates. If you are lucky enough to get a room, you will not be disappointed.

The beautiful, spacious rooms and private baths were surpassed only by the friendliness of our hosts, Bob and Barbara. They were attentive to our needs and made sure that we had everything we wanted. Barbara's breakfasts were amazingly delicious and beautifully presented. The B & B is just a 5 min. walk from town. It was a wonderful location for our girls' weekend!

Barbara and Robert have spared nothing in making this a relaxing, delightful place to stay. Our room was large, immaculate and beautiful decorated. The location is great, five minute walk to the center of town. The GOURMET breakfast was excellent and very well presented. Sweets, coffee and tea were left out in the common area (you must try!). We would recommend this place to all our friends and family.

Accidentally stubled on this B&B located in a historical house near the center of Wolfeboro. Amazingly clean and pleasantly appointed house. The breakfast was delicious.
