I cannot say enough great things about the Glynn House Inn in Ashland, New Hampshire.  Situated in an old town in the Lakes Region just off I-93 and close to Squam Lake, it's a perfect location less than 2 hours from Boston (we didn't hit traffic, thankfully).  The town itself is nothing to write home about- it's a fairly cute working class village with a couple of restaurants and a small grocery store.  

On to the actual inn:
Hosts: 5 stars-
Glen and his family were unbelievably welcoming, friendly, and helpful in getting acclimated to the inn and with arrangements for activities and restaurants.  They made us feel right at home, despite the many guests who were staying there during the weekend.

The room: 5 stars-
While retaining much of the old charm of the original house (uneven floors, for example), they did a wonderful job juxtaposing modern amenities and fixtures into the 19th century carriage house.  There was a nice sitting area, relaxing whirlpool tub, and comfortable bed in the room.  The room was also spacious and secure.  

The inn: 5 stars-
Absolutely fantastic.  Glen pointed out the beautiful curved window, the nice white oak accents, and other fixtures sprinkled throughout the house.  Beautifully maintained.

Breakfast: 5 stars-
Couldn't have been better.  My fiancee and I split the quiche and Belgian waffle, both of which were amazing.  I dare say that the maple bacon was probably the best bacon I've ever had (though I will be going to hell for eating it).  :)  

I would highly recommend the Glynn House for anyone traveling to the Lakes Region.  We'll definitely be back next summer.

Oh boy, did we need a gem like this. My husband and I decided to take a break from our packing before a cross-country move to visit this beautiful part of New England. We are grateful to the Glynn House Inn for everything from the smooth-as-silk welcome to the spotless and perfectly-appointed suite to our hosts' delightful and sound advice about both where to have a birthday dinner to the next morning's lakeside adventure were exactly what we needed.

Easily the best B&B my wife and I have ever stayed in.

Stayed here for two nights and then we had a reservation at another place up in Sugar Hill, you know the one that looks nice on the website but is actually a dump when you get there, and we hated the place in Sugar Hill so much we called at a very late hour to come back and thankfully we got the last room.

The breakfast is fantastic, the location is very easy to find and close to plenty of activities.

This place is the real deal!

We recently had the fortunate opportunity to stay at the Glynn house Inn at the end of August for our 1yr anniversary/engagement celebration.  I luckily came upon this bed and breakfast while searching 'gluten free' and 'bed and breakfast' when planning our weekend getaway.   After reading all of the positive reviews, looking at the website, and reviewing the Squam Lake/Golden Pond area, we quickly decided upon Glynn House.

We arrived at the 3:00 check-in time and were warmly welcomed by Glenn, one of the inn-keepers.  During our quick check-in, Glenn gave us a quick rundown on the complementary wine and cheese hour, a full selection of library videos that were available until 7, as well as restaurants and activities in the area.  He asked about any food allergies and made a note that I would be taking full advantage of the made to order gluten-free breakfast.  

Glenn took us up to our room and we were pleasantly surprised to find out that we had been upgraded to the Harrison Room.  The room definitely had a romantic feel and even had a shower in the sleeping area facing the bed.  We had full access to cable and were provided with the wifi-access code in case we needed it during our stay.

The two mornings we stayed, we took full advantage of the made to order breakfast and sampled the stuffed French toast and pesto poached eggs.  Breakfast always started off with a plate of fresh cut up fruit, juice, and warm muffins (gluten free for me).  Both breakfast choices were delicious (both the gluten free and regular versions).  The service was just as good if not better than most restaurants we have visited.

Just to note, some of the other reviews I read while planning commented on extra charges and the late check-in time.  Now, there are extra charges for room and food taxes that are separate from the room prices, but these charges are fully listed on the website.  I can also fully understand the 3 o'clock check-in time since they have to get all the rooms ready after the guests leave at 11 o'clock.

We would 100% recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone traveling through the area.  We were provided with a fine balance of friendly hospitality while also giving us all the privacy we were looking for our special getaway.

We had a very nice, albeit short, stay at the Glynn House.

The hosts are very friendly and knowledgable of the area. Our room was one that included the jacuzzi/hot tub, which was immaculate and big enough to accomodate my 6'8" frame with room to spare.

There are several options for your stay, including a self-catered apartment which will likely be my choice the next time around. No complaints with our room, mind you, but for an extended time I'd like the privacy and setting of the apoartment.

One minor disappointment was the lack of the advertised wine and cheese happy hour in the evening which never materialized. Perhaps it was because there were only 3 rooms occupied that night, but it was something we were looking forward to.

Breakfast choices were plentiful and nicely prepared and presented.

In all, a very nice place with fine service and staff.

Great place to stay a few nights or a extended period. The staff is great lead by Glenn who is a great host and swell chap. He has great knowledge about the surrounding area and can offer suggestions regarding restaurants or day trips. The suites are fantastic and most offer a jacuzzi tub and propane fireplace. The breakfast is leaps and bounds above others Inns in the area. No cheap pastries here, the muffins are fresh, the eggs are great and there's plenty of juice coffee and tea to go around as well. They also offer a gluten free menu by request.

Just returned from a very bad experience at the Glynn House.

We stayed in a Suite in the "Carriage House"   It started badly and just got worse.... Upon our check in the Innkeeper showed us the Suite which I immediately noticed smelled strongly of paint fumes.  He explained that the pipes had recently burst and they had just finished painting the rooms that day.  There were no other rooms avaialble so we took the room.  Although the Innkeeper believed there was no odor, it was very bothersome to us and gave us headaches.    Initially, the gas fireplace seemed to work, but when we returned to our room after dinner, it would not relight -- and we could not get it to work for the rest of our stay.   The Innkeeper explained later that they had had a problem with a gasleak and unfortunately there was a problem.  The bigger problem to not having a working fireplace was that the Suite was freezing cold -- the heat either was not working or was just working very slowly..... so the little time we spent in our room (which was minimal due to paint fumes) we spent literally wearing our winter coats and scarves.    We travel with our dog and this Inn advertises as a "dog friendly" Inn --- on this visit we had no problem --- however dog owners should be aware that they do have a young dog that, on our Fall visit, was allowed to roam off-leash and is aggresssive toward other dogs --- this made our previous visit quite uncomfortable.  
Had the InnKeepers been willing to really listen and understand my concerns and offer something like a discount on the room (as it was not what we had signed up for) -- we probably would have left happy guests planning on returning --- however, their only offer was that we could RETURN AGAIN (!) at a discounted rate.  

On this trip we had brought friends with us and I was so embarrassed that I brought friends to what was such a disappointing and uncomfortable expeirence.  We will not be going back.

I just got back from the most amazing weekend spent at this B&B. My husband and I picked out this place because it is reasonably priced, it has private bathrooms, and it looked gorgeous on the website. Turns out those are the least of the great things about this place.

Pam and her daughter Ingrid welcomed us warmly, and we immediately felt at home. We arrived just a tad too late for the complementary wine and hors d'oeuvres,  but heartily enjoyed them the second night. Instead, with a wise tip from Pam we headed over the Common Man, a quirky, rustic restaurant and bar with surprisingly good food, just a couple blocks away.  

The room,  admittedly the cheapest in the place, was nevertheless cutely decorated, with a comfortable bed, well-controlled heating, and a modern bathroom. Also, my husband enjoyed the bowls of pretzels and candies outside the room when he felt noshy after the bar.

The next morning we were treated to a fantastic breakfast. Poached peaches, fresh muffins, and the most perfectly poached eggs. MMMM! Not really having planned ahead, we asked Pam for advice on a good hiking route--nothing too strenuous, but will pretty views. She gave us a map and directed us to the perfect hiking trail in the White Mountains. An easy 3 miles to a waterfall, it was just what we were looking for.

That evening brought an unseasonal snow storm, and we were glad to have the restaurant in walking distance so we didn't have to drive. Even if we hadn't gone out, Pam has a bookshelf full of complementary movies we could have snuggled down with. In the morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see the 6+ inches of snow shoveled off the path to the main house, and from around our car, by the time we went to breakfast. We left Glynn House Sunday morning, thinking we would never have to look for another B&B so long as we live in New England.

In short, this was probably the best hospitality experience I have ever had.  I can't wait to go back!
