When someone mentions Peterborough, one thinks of the many artistic opportunities, retail shops, and historic buildings there. A relative newcomer to Peterborough is the Little River Bed and Breakfast, an airy, attractive, and light-filled lodging option on the banks of the Nubanusit River, on quiet Union Street just outside the downtown area. The current owners, Paula and Rob Fox, transformed an 1870’s farmhouse into a stunning B&B six years ago.
Each of the four guest rooms is individually decorated and features a Queen bed, attached private bath, and either a gas stove fireplace or river views. The rooms also include flat screen televisions, wireless Internet, and air conditioning. There are two common rooms, the first floor living room features a wood burning fireplace and big screen television, while the second floor sunroom overlooking the river has books for guests’ use, together with comfortable chairs in which to lounge and read. A great plus is the outdoor deck overlooking the river, which beckons guests three seasons of the year.
A delicious multi-course gourmet breakfast is served daily which may feature one of their signature dishes like French Baked Eggs, Summer Vegetable Strata, Blueberry Baked French Toast, or their famous homemade honey granola. The B&B is completely non-smoking and pet-free and is not recommended for children twelve years old and younger. Paula and Rob are very green-friendly; their B&B was designated an “Environmental Champion” by the NH Lodging and Restaurant Association.
There is a multitude of cultural, recreational, and shopping opportunities available in the region. If you are at a loss about where to go, the very knowledgeable owners can furnish you with recommendations to make your stay very rewarding.
