The House on the Hill is what you expect when you hear the words “New England B&B”: elegant, welcoming, tasteful and relaxed. Its breakfasts are great fun, as they change every day (one day it can be eggs any way you like them, another day French toast with fruit, always with muffins, toast, fruit juice, etc.). The surroundings are pretty and although it’s quite close to a road, there isn’t a great deal of traffic and what there is does not produce too much noise.
Its owners – he is French, she is American – are extremely friendly and helpful. During my stay they organized a visit to a nearby farm where they have horses (one of the people in my party loves horses and riding); I was given access to a laptop computer when mine would not connect properly to the house’s wireless network.
There are two very friendly dogs, which the owners of the place keep well controlled until they are sure that guests like dogs (we did).
The rooms are spacious and quiet. It might be nice to have some sort of blinds in the windows of ground floor bedroom (that’s where I stayed). Maybe there are blinds, but I was unable to see them. At other times sunlight coming in is not a problem, but in summer, when the sun rises early, it could be bothersome. The rooms and the bathrooms are very well decorated and spotlessly clean. And there is plenty of space to hang your clothes, plus assorted things such as board games, books and a decent TV set, with a DVD player and lots of DVDs, right in your room.
All in all, we enjoyed out stay and would go back to it. You would have to be a very difficult person not to enjoy this place. Delightful.
