We were very glad to stay at Colony House Bed & Breakfast. Very friendly, Very helpsome. Good breakfast. We wanted to hike in the area and the host phoned someone to get information, so that we would experience the best hiking routes.

I felt right at home at the Colony House during our week-long fall foliage visit. The B&B is within walking distance of nearly everything in the city of Keene, including its well maintained walking paths and several restaurants and shops. The hostesses prepared a delicious and hearty breakfast every morning that far surpassed my expectations of "continental" style from other... More

This meticulously restored historic home along with Joslin and Lisa's attention and care is the epitome of hospitality. Room was comfortable and well equipped. Bathroom was gleaming. Lisa asked for our breakfast preferences and then made delicious home-cooked breakfasts. This is now my home away from home when I come to Keene.

The renovated historic home is a delight, especially in the common areas. But the best is LISA who looked after us thoroughly even with a late arrival. The bedroom was tight fitting but very attractively furnished. Excellent shower.

The Colony House is tastefully restored and furnished. It is like stepping back in time but with all of today's modern conveniences. The bedrooms are located in the addition, which were once the servant's quarters. Don't panic, rooms are spacious and quite comfortable.
