Gourmet Getaway for one night

Husband and I are looking to celebrate our anniversary in a couple of weeks and would like to find a romantic, somewhat luxurious B&B in New England that has great breakfasts and dinners served right in the Inn. We are hoping to find someplace that has lots of good eats around for lunches, shopping and activities for a November saturday. Any ideas?

  1. Easy peasy - go to the Kedron Vally Inn. South Woodstock Vermont.
    Here's the link:
    It's lovely..... Happy Anniversary!

    1. Castle Hill in Newport, RI

      Castle Hill Inn & Resort
      590 Ocean Ave, Newport, RI 02840

      1. Oh, the White Barn Inn would be right up your alley in Kennibunkport Me


        1. I will send you a list of some B&B's in New England (http://www.passporttonewengland.com/) You might find something there. (http://gonewengland.about.com/od/bbs/...) These might help also, Good luck , Earle

          1. I recommend the Old Inn on the Green in New Marlborough, MA. Exquisite.

            1. I suggest the Inn at Sawmill Farm in West Dover VT or the Rabbit Hill Inn in Lower Waterford, Vt.
              Both inns have excellent food and are very romantic and very expensive, but you would enjoy either one.

              1. The Rabbit Hill Inn, Lower Waterford, Vermont !!!
                Awarded "One of the Most Romantic Bed & Breakfasts in Vermont"

                1. The Inn at Thorn Hill, Jackson, NH. The Mt Washington Room is gorgeous, but books a year in advance. We like the Mt. Adams. They have a website.

                    We stayed at the B and B on the grounds of the Mt. Washington Inn and had a great weekend experience including meals.....

                  2. Snowvillage Inn - close to North Conway and shopping is excellent as well.

                      I second North Conway area. Especially this time of year, it is so beautiful.

                      1. Second time today I have recommended the Mountain Top Inn in Chittendon VT. Great rooms and some cottages, beautiful grounds and food to match....

                        1. OMG! Thank you all so much for all the rec's. I am looking them over right now and hoping to decide by the weekend. We usually end up in New York City for the weekend, but we wanted something more low key.

                          1. I'd suggest the Whaler's Inn in Mystic. It's right downtown, and Bravo Bravo Restaurant is on the first floor, which is a contender for the best food in Mystic. There are a lot of nice shops, walks, and other restaurants, the Mystic River to enjoy. Other good places to eat are Azu and Captain Daniel Packer Inn. Whaler's Inn is not a B & B, but a small inn.

                            1. Hartstone Inn, Camden, Maine, or Chapman Cottage Inn, York, Maine. Both are reasonably priced--actually in off-seaon rates, have excellent food, are service oriented, and near decent shopping; Harstone is in downtown Camden near all the specialty shops, Chapman Cottage is a 10minute walk from York Village shops and a 15-minute or so drive from Kittery's outlets. I'd also second Inn at Thorn Hill, Jackson, NH--you can't beat the off-season rates, which include breakfast and a three-course dinner, and it has a spa, too.

                              1. Here is an intriguing one in VT I've always wanted to go to.
