My wife and I wanted to take a vacation, but we didn't have time to go far. The Silver Fountain Inn was a place we've driven past many times. The beautiful house and grounds always intrigued us, so we decided to give it a whirl for our getaway, romantic weekend. We could not have been more pleased. As beautiful as...

Thank you for the wonderful review and we thoroughly enjoyed you being here both for your stay and the Murder Mystery! We look forward to seeing you "around town" as well and we loved that you found such solace just a couple miles away:)

Since the last review, I’ve eaten here several times. On one exceptionally memorable stop on a frigidly cold day last winter, I had a hearty soup that warmed me up and really fortified me against the cold. On the most-recent visit, I brought a friend who goes to Florida for the winter. She wanted to have lunch in the Tea...

It was so nice to see you two again and glad we were a stop before Florida (although I am a little jealous). Our aim is to keep the all our foods and service high for that wonderful experience that people will want to come back for time and time again:) See you soon!

We stayed in the Silver Fountain in for just one night while passing through. The character and history behind this home is amazing and worth the visit. Our room was on the third floor, so make sure you can do stairs if you decide to stay here. Room was tastefully done and reflected the age and time of the building,...

Stayed for 2 nights on our New England tour.A beautifully furnished and decorated old home , although a little ornate for our taste. Dining room wouldn't have disgraced "Downton Abbey"', where Pam serves "English style" afternoon tea to non-residents and an excellent breakfast to residents. Our bedroom was on the top floor and had a very high bed, almost needed...

Wow, thank you for the "Downton Abbey" comparison! We enjoyed our short time with you and hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels and are back home safely:)

6 of us had lunch here on Saturday. The food was delicious, apple & cheese Panini was my favorite. The scone with Devonshire cream & lemon curd was to die for. There are so many flavors of tea to choose from I will definitely have to go back. The best part of the experience was our server, Kelly. She was...

Friends and I had a great lunch and afternoon tea at Silver Fountain. Great atmosphere, great food and a really great waitress named Kelly, who made us feel very comfortable and added to our fun. She was awesome!

Thank you for the great review, Kelly will be very happy to see another positive one! We look forward to your next visit with us.

Culver City, CA
Reviewed 13 October 2016

Our room was exactly as pictured: comfortable, lovely and restful. The breakfast choices were varied and delicious. Everything was immaculate but the best part was the warmth, friendliness and helpfulness of the owners, Pam and Jim, and staff (Kelly was great). It's a pleasant, short walk to the center of town. We would definitely return and recommend it.

Reviewed 30 September 2016

It is very difficult for us to write this review. We stayed here over seven years ago, when the Inn was under different management, and had a good experience. So when our favorite hotel in Dover was fully booked, we chose to stay here. The current innkeepers are two of the nicest and most conscientious we have ever encountered. They...

This is a great place to stay with friends, family or couples. There were 15 of us for our ladies weekend. The Inn is just lovely and the owners Pam and Jim are tremendous. Each room is beautiful and distinctive. Delicious breakfasts and teas!

Northampton, Massachusetts
Reviewed 31 August 2016

The rooms are decorated in keeping with the Victorian style of the house and feel cozy and gracious. The laid back innkeepers spend as much or as little time talking as you want. The breakfast is very good and you get a choice of eggs or pancakes. There is a restaurant that serves high tea until 3:00 p.m. in the...

“Avoid the Duchess”
  • Appearances can be deceiving ... pretty, but lumpy bed
  • Window faces a busy street, bathroom behind the door. Move the chaise to get to either.
