Fodor's Expert Review Inn by the Bandstand

6 Front St., Exeter, New Hampshire, 03833, USA Fodor's Choice

This gorgeously appointed, luxury B&B in the heart of downtown Exeter exudes character and comfort, with individually themed rooms furnished with fine antiques, Oriental rugs, and cushy bedding. Most of the accommodations in this exquisite Federal-style mansion, built in 1809, have gas fireplaces, and the Exeter Suite has its original Colonial kitchen fireplace; the Abenaki Room takes an outdoorsy approach with exposed beams, antlers over the brick fireplace, and a boat-shape bookcase.
