We attended a wedding that was held at the inn over the weekend. The grounds are beautiful with tennis courts, games, pool, outside patio and nice places to walk. It's located on a hilltop that provides a gorgeous view. The room we stayed in was inside the main building. This is where breakfast (it's included) is served. There are sitting... More

We have gone to Dexter's now for two years of family reunion summer vacation. The grounds are lovely and secluded with lots of activity for the kids. Breakfast is delicious with a new item every morning (e.g., breakfast tacos, quiche, waffles). Lake Sunapee has the best beach and the cleanest water, a real joy. Many trails in the area to... More

We just held a family reunion weekend for over 100 people at Dexter's Inn in Sunapee, New Hampshire. It was the perfect venue and every single guest raved about the place. We provided our own casual BBQ on the patio for Friday night and hired Dexter's chef to cater a lovely meal in the big tent for Saturday night. There... More

Over the last 10 years my family and I have stayed at Dexter's Inn several times and always look forward to returning. Dexter's Inn is a classic New England country B&B situated on a beautiful mountain top with spectacular views. There isn't a bad room in the entire Inn and the service and dinning room are both excellent. All this... More

My girlfriend and I sought a quiet getaway close to nature, and were met with a well-kept, traditional B&B, and an excellent, highly value-for-money weekend. John, who runs the inn, is phenomenal, patient (taught us rudiments of skiing and snow-shoeing, and gave impeccable directions), and very accommodating. The rooms are cozy, clean, elegant decor, and extremely restful. Their cook made... More

We had stayed at the inn several years ago, and although it was showing it's age, the Innkeeper was very personable and helpful, the chef personally served your breakfast and the room was comfortable and you cannot beat the views! Also there was a heated pool and a lovely outdoor seating area. This time, our room and the common rooms... More

Perched on a hill with stunning views this inn begins your stay with temptations. The main house is large and accommodating with dining, TV room, children's room and sitting areas. Breakfast is served as part of your fees and the potatoes tempt you to get more. Outdoors, a new stone patio leads to recreation areas including tennis and a pool.... More

I have a large group of friends--like family, but we have not been able to gather for many years, with small children, ever growing responsibilities and more miles between us.  We were able to organize to come together at Dexter's Inn this winter and it was the perfect location.  Casual common rooms to gather, breakfast and dinner right on site,...
