Andy and Su run a great home. The location is perfect to enjoy York. Make sure you take the Cliff and Fisherman's walk. Both provided truly beautiful nature sites. Breakfast was outstanding. Andy and Su provide great meal tips and take him up on preparing a trip map for your adventures. His map and suggestions provided my wife and I with a great day in Kennebunkport.
Every year a group of us book the entire inn; Pam and Jim take excellent care of us, are very helpful and make us feel so welcome. We always hate leaving on Sun, and can't wait to return next year. Thanks so much, Pam and Jim!
My wife and I stayed at the Martin Hill Inn this past weekend for short vacation. Everything about our stay was wonderful! Right when we arrived, the innkeepers were incredibly friendly, accommodating, and helpful with all aspects of our stay. The room itself was cozy, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast served in the morning was top notch. You also can't beat the location - only a short walk to downtown. 5 stars all around!
We had a wonderful time at the Silver Fountain Inn during our 50th reunion at Berwick Academy. Pam and Jim were wonderful hosts to the members of our class who stayed at the Inn! We had wonderful breakfasts and it was like staying at a very welcoming home! Thank you Pam and Jim for making this such a special time for us. I am already looking forward to the 55th!
We were only able to stay one night, but would have stayed longer if we could. Our host called prior to our stay to assure that our accommodations were just right, down or synthetic pillows, other allergies, etc. What a nice thing to do! Our room was lovely, food was great and the location was perfect for us. Thanks and we hope to visit again.
My wife, Kathy and I spent the past Labor Day weekend with Pam and Jim at their beautiful B & B. We had come to Dover to visit our son who lives there. I found the Silver Fountain Inn on the internet. It was described as an excellent place to stay. We have stayed at many B & B's and excellent just doesn't cover it, heaven is more like it! From the moment we arrived, and were greeted by Pam's secret communication method, and stepped into what would become a place of comfort and friendship over the next few days! Aside from the charm and eloquence a warmth prevails that is hard to describe. We had a wonderful time in Dover with our son. We had also made two lifelong friends, Pam and Jim! When the time came for us to leave, we had a very difficult time to do so because we felt like we were leaving family. It was made easier with the knowledge that we will certainly see them and the Silver Fountain Inn again! BY THE WAY JIM, NEXT TIME DON'T FORGET YOUR PART OF OUR BONDING EVENINGS! I DID BRING THE REFRESHMENT! Love you guys, Rod and Kathy
This place is such a gem! The staff was accommodating, sweet and generous. The rooms are gorgeous! We had the vivienne and duchess. Both have such charming and inspiring decor, so comfy and delightful. Breakfast was fresh and filled with so many little treats. Every nook and cranny to this place is memorable and pleasant. It is an absolute no brainer to stay here. The staff does one brilliant job. Bravo! Leanne & Jorge
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Silver Fountain. We were in town for the weekend for a family wedding, and loved the proximity of the Inn to town. The rooms were lovely and looked just like they did in the pictures online. The owners were so friendly and welcoming. They even helped me put the finishing touches on a special gift I was preparing. Way above the call of duty! They made us feel like family. Breakfast was delicious and we would definitely stay here again.
My first time to stay at a B&B, and I would like to go back here again. Pam is such a gracious host. Breakfast is always good, the waffles, pancakes and french toast were so fluffy. Just how I like them! The room we stayed at is very clean, we got in very late....the AC was turned on already cooling our room. Weather wasn't so great but Pam gave us tips on where to go and what to do - they were all great! Would love to see more of New Hampshire and will stay here again.
Friendly and welcoming.Beautiful bed and breakfast. Comfortable rooms. Breakfast was good. Care and attention paid to every detail. Would recommend this bed and breakfast highly. Is definitely one of the best that we have stayed at.
Amazing facility! The Dido room was immaculate and the attached bath was clean and modern. The views of the private gardens (in springtime bloom) and the partial view of the harbor were wonderful. Quiet, clean and beautiful. Other rooms afford breathtaking views of the river and of Portsmouth, NH. Fantastic service! Due to a delayed flight, we arrived horribly late. The inn keepers were gracious and accommodating, we got settled in with no fuss or drama! During our 1 week stay, we never skipped fresh coffee in the morning or the elegant breakfasts prepared by the inn keepers. The food was nutritious and ever changing, we were always pleasantly surprised and never disappointed. The inn is easily accessible from the interstate and until the bridges are repaired in summer of 2013, a free shuttle (just a few minute’s walk from the Inn) will bring you into the heart of downtown Portsmouth. The Inn is only a few driving minutes from the Kittery Outlets, Old Town Kittery and the Interstate. Well worth the stay, if even for a night, and an exceptional value for the long term guest.

Jade welcomed our wedding party and we relaxed enjoying the ambiance and wonderful food. The comfortable setting allowed us to gather, share stories by the fireplace, or flow into more laughter and stories at the dining table with a delightful breakfast. The accommodations couldn’t have been more in any way and Jade a delight to meet and work with. Our stay here was part of the memorable experience of our daughter's wedding and we appreciate your contribution. Thank You - MOB Fran
We visited friends in the Dover area who were unable to provide us with a room and they suggested Silver Fountain Inn. Great suggestion! The Silk Room, bottom floor rear, was large with plenty of furnishings, including a good size bathroom with a marvelous looking tub, queen size bed, and tv. The room was clean and quiet. We arrived after hours, found the key to our room, and quickly settled in. We found cookies and bottled water. The next morning we had breakfast cooked to order. The owners were very pleasant and informative. We had a wonderful time and recommend this B&B to everyone. Christopher D Chamberlin
We stayed in the Cathedral Room in the main house and it was a treat to return to at day's end. The breakfast was delicious and we were given excellent recommendations for places to eat for lunch & dinner. Worth a return trip!
By far the best BnB my wife and i have ever visited. Every aspect of our stay was perfect. Jade is doing an amazing job and we wish her all the luck in the world. The bed, room, and bath were very nice (we booked the Oak Room) but the breakfast and service was the best. We will definately make a return visit.
Terrific find! We just had a 2 night stay, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The innkeeper was fabulous, taking care of all needs. This is what you hope for when you stay at a B&B. Comfortable room with all the amenities, nice public areas, with complimentary Sherry and Port to sit in the parlour, or the porch outside. Fabulous breakfast. Only downside was that the bridge to Portsmouth (Rt. 1) is now not open (until 7/2013) to even foot traffic. However, there is a shuttle that is right across the street that leaves every hour on the hour, and is about 7-8 minutes. We highly recommend, and would stay again.
What an absolute treat it was to find the Silver Fountain Inn! Our room was comfortable and the home was amazing. Our breakfast was made to order :) Jade is putting her heart and soul into this home! If you are in the Portsmouth/Dover area, stay here. You will not be disappointed!
... an absolutely delightful Bed & Breakfast! Lynn and Rick were cordial and accomodating. We spent several nights at the inn on a long-weekend getaway, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The home is charming and cozy, with a delightful porch and garden. Coffee in the rocking chairs and salt air is a lovely combination. And a comfy sit in the parlor in the evenings before bed was very refreshing. Our room was wonderfully appointed and very comfortable. Only the fresh, delicious coffee could drag me out of that bed! Breakfast was always very delightful and unique. Lynn has wonderful recipes and is quite the cook! The inn is a great launching point for places of interest up and down the coast.
My husband and I immediately felt at home here -- clean, crisp bedclothes, spotless bathroom, gourmet breakfasts and fragrant garden. It was as though we were transported back to the late 1800s, right down to the antiques and the view of the harbor. Other plusses were the walkable neighborhood, proximity to a good lobster restaurant and the complementary cookies in the afternoon and sherry and dark chocolate at night. Add a stimulating but relaxing massage by Katina and the long weekend here was a delightful way to participate in our daughter's graduation from UNH.
Small room, tiniest bathroom ever served a purpose -- a good night's sleep and a safe, clean place to stay as we explored charming Portsmouth. The price was right and breakfast yummy. We will return to this beautiful area.
Charming rooms, very accommodating hostess, delicious breakfasts with local foods as much as possible and great conversations. We love to walk, often hiking through the snow around Odiorne Point in the afternoon before our arrival at the Inn where we are greeted with a hot cup of tea and homemade cookies. Conversation abounds of the latest movies and books and happenings in the port city of Portsmouth. Margot is a great resource for culture and dining options; she truly listens to our interests and needs, always making our stay like a home away from our home in Canterbury, NH.
This place is just wonderful! It exceeded all my expectations in every single way. I believe this is the perfect place for every occasion. I stayed here during a weekend getaway with my husband and it satisfied all of our needs: we got delicious gourmet meals, our room was quiet, the service was stellar, they recommendations were excellent and the spa services were perfect! The atmosphere and location are very convenient. We even had the opportunity to meet the owner, Lynn, who is lovely and made our stay very pleasant. I will definitely go back!
Su and Andy were excellent hosts. They were especially helpful when providing suggestions for restaurants and directions. We forgot a few items and they graciously mailed them to us! The property was exceptional!
We've stayed twice in this lovely inn in the past year, and our opinion hasn't changed - it's a gem. The rooms are big and well furnished, the dining room filled with antiques, good coffee at all hours, and a most welcoming landlady. We'll pick this inn again whenever we're in the region.
