Inn By The Bandstand
Otherworldly kindness with a luxury finish
My word! This place! I slept beside a converted Colonial kitchen fireplace in a four-poster bed while my son, dreaming on his next morning's interview at Exeter, slept in the adjoining room under a quilt. Jaime greeted us so warmly that my son (we are from the West Coast) said "How is it that people here are so kind?" My son is notoriously underdressed for cold, and refused to put on his gloves and scarf to walk out onto the black ice -- so our host, at the door, gave him HIS OWN scarf and gloves. The decor is enchanting, the atmosphere magical. My son said he wants to tell his friends to go to Exeter just so they can stay at The Inn By the Bandstand.

AAAAAAA+++++++establishment. A wonderful more than 5 star experience. Feels like I was coming home. Lovely touches like complimentary fresh chocolate chip cookies, wine & port. Super kind, warm, more than helpful, friendly staff. Beautifully and tastefully decorated according to the period of the home. Thank you for the wonderful experience. You are the best of the best!

Inn By The Bandstand
After normally staying at chain hotels this Inn was an absolutely wonderful experience. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and "special" - almost part of the family. Jaime went out of his way to make sure there was nothing we needed. The home-cooked breakfast each day was amazing. I would highly recommend this Inn - perfect for a romantic get-away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I look forward to having the chance to stay there again!
