Located in a mid-19th century building on Main Street in Hampstead is the Stillmeadow Bed and Breakfast. Two acres of gardens adjoin the Colonial Italianate house, originally built by a newly married husband for his wife in 1850. The B&B is now owned by Margaret and Willie Mitchell, who settled in New Hampshire from Scotland five years ago.
The Mitchells have kept their B&B as historically accurate as possible, but added a host of amenities to please the discerning traveler. Their two suites and one room feature air conditioning, television, wifi, robes, slippers, hair dryers, and toiletries. The suites also have mini refrigerators and recliners.
The proprietors feature local produce and farm-fresh eggs at the morning meals in the well-appointed Breakfast Room. The parlor has a butler’s pantry with snacks and drinks for guests’ 24-hour use; coffee and tea is also always available in the Breakfast Room. Stillmeadow is a non-smoking home; pets are not allowed. Please contact the owners about their policy on children as guests.
Hampstead is a town well-known for the antique homes lining its Main Street and the many ponds and lakes that attract summer visitors. The town is ideally situated in Southern New Hampshire – just a few minutes to the beach, Massachusetts, bustling Portsmouth, and the state’s largest cities, Manchester and Nashua. Hampstead has many antique, gift, and craft shops, and a church with a Paul Revere bell. For outdoor recreation, Hampstead boasts a 360-acre town forest and is near the 26-mile long Rockingham Recreational Trail, ideal for hiking, biking, and snowmobiling.
The Mitchells are very fond of their adopted homeland, and can ably assist visitors with information on local attractions. For more information on Stillmeadow, please go to their website.
