Had a terrific weekend at the Wakefield Inn in Wakefield, NH. Gretchen and Janel were wonderful hosts and everything was perfect. The room was fantastic, the food was superb and we were even able to have individual massages and take a cooking class with Janel! The location in the Lakes Region and also near Maine is great. The Inn is... More

Had a wonderful time here. The room (Sanborn room) was fantastic, the bed was comfortable, the staff was friendly and the food was great. Hope to have a chance to get back there. Definitely worth the trip!

Upon arrival at the Wakefield Inn we were not impressed by the appearance of the Inn and the state of the grounds but it was early November and they had had a busy season the place could have used a little paint and a leaf blower.We came a little early Janel said we could come at 2 instead of 3...

My husband, 6 month old son and I stayed at the Wakefield Inn for two nights. I have to say I had read the reviews prior to our arrival and was worried that we would be met with unwelcoming behavior and nothing was farther from the truth. Gretchen was very warm towards my son and was very accomodating in showing... More

We arrived at the Wakefield as part of a small party around tea time and were met at the door by, as we now believe, Janel, the owner. The first meeting was not friendly and at first slightly took us aback. The building looked lovely and we were shown to our rooms. My wife and I occupied the Thompson room... More

My husband and I took advantage of the Living Social deal that many other reviewers have mentioned. Overall, we had a lovely weekend. The inn is old and needs renovation but it was cosy in its own way. We stayed in the Sanborn room and it was comfortable enough though we heard lots of creaks and sounds of other guests... More

This is a charming, if a little quirky, old house, with historical connections and interesting architectural features. We stayed for two nights in the Tibbetts Room, on the third floor. With sleeping for four, in two seperate rooms, there was an unfinished feel about Tibbetts but the spare bed gave us plenty of space for repacking our cases prior to... More

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... More

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... More
