Hubby and I are High Tea lovers, and have spent many hours searching out this elusive little goody all over New England. We are thoroughly delighted to have found the Silver Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor in Dover, NH - about 1 ½ hours northeast of Nashua or about the same distance up Rt 95 from Boston. For the very...

This Victorian home, built in the 1870's, is beautifully appointed. Our room was very comfortable with private bath and comfortable mattress. The grounds were kept up nicely. Nice selection for breakfast which was very good. Our hostess was great! Would definitely stay there again. Our daughter goes to UNH and althought this is not right in Durham, it is close...

Thanks so much - we enjoyed your company and have put a lot of back work in to the gardens these past couple years so we were thrilled you noticed!

From receipt at a late hour to departure we loved our stay. It was obvious that our hostess loved her house and her business. A must stay in New Hampshire! Comfortable big beds, individual bathrooms, and great interesting breakfast.

Loved your review title and thanks for the "must stay." We certainly enjoyed meeting you as well and hopefully we'll see you again one of these days. A friend of yours in town also said you had wonderful things to say - much appreciated.

I was looking for a place to give the wife a romantic weekend away - the Silver Fountain Inn was a fantastic success. The building is beautiful and the owners have kept it period authentic. Jim and Pam are gracious, the Inn is nostalgic, and the food was fantastic. This is definitely a great place to launch from if you...

It was a pleasure to meet both of you plus being able to help you in a romantic get-away! We loved hearing about what you did around the Seacoast and are updating our site to include some of your findings. Jim and I take great pride in preserving our little gem in Dover and appreciate your positive feedback!

I can't say enough positive things about our experience with the tea house. My mother and I hosted my sister's bridal shower here (about 25 adults) and from the beginning were very impressed with the owner's (Pam) communication. Pam was very accommodating with our requests and flexible the day of the shower. She was a delight to work with and...

This was a gift from our family for a murder mystery weekend. Had a lot of fun in participating in it, but the best part was staying in this lovely inn. There was not one thing wrong with it.

Awww, thanks so much for the gracious review, we often feel like we're losing friends as people check out, but we are so glad that you're considering coming back in the fall as then we'll get to revisit the weekend and "murder."

  • Window faces a busy street, bathroom behind the door. Move the chaise to get to either.
