Very quiet B&B about 6 miles from the center of Errol, NH. Sonja & Charles are very pleasant hosts and fun to talk with. Our room was clean and comfortable. It had its own door to the outside and you could park right near the door. There is a big dinning room table with a window overlooking a flower bed and some water. We got to watch a Great Blue Heron wade during our breakfast. Breakfast was very good. We had coffee, OJ, fresh fruit, homemade banana bread, and a tasty omelet with veggies (We could also have chosen french toast, waffles, or blueberry, banana, or plain pancakes)
This gem of a bed and breakfast is a wonderful and quaint throwback to a simpler time.
I stayed here with my friend while we were competing at a local adventure race at Colebrook State Park.
The hosts of this bed and breakfast were extremely friendly and hospitable. Despite arriving late, Sonja and Charles greeted us at the front door and gave us a tour of the house as well as our room. They were welcoming, accommodating, conversational, and made us feel like we were at home without ever being over-bearing or intrusive.
The house is set back off the road just down the street from The Basalms. It has a rustic, quaint, old-world feel, and also serves as the town's meeting house and voting center.
It's in a remote, small town called Errol, and if you are looking for peace, quiet, and an opportunity to enjoy nature...look no further. At night it's pitch black, the sky is clear, the stars and moon appearing like a planetarium above, with only the sound of bugs to break the silence. During the day, you have wonderful views of the forest and mountains behind the house.
The room we stayed in is spacious and has a private back door entrance. The bathroom is large and the beds are comfortable.
Breakfast is excellent, and consists of homemade banana bread, fresh fruit, orange juice, coffee, eggs anyway you want them, pancakes (blueberry was incredible), French toast, waffles, and bacon, all made fresh to your liking by Sonja and Charles.
The house is just minutes away from amazing hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and/or ATV trails, depending on what time of year you're visiting.
If you are coming to New Hampshire and looking for a cozy, comfortable, inexpensive stay with lots of access to outdoor activities and old-world charm, I highly recommend A Peace Of Heaven Bed and Breakfast!
I am reluctantly giving this B&B only three stars because in my mind it’s not what we typically encounter as a Bed and Breakfast.
We did like the private entrance and our room was very clean and well appointed, however, the towels have seen a few too many washings. A usual B&B has public areas for guests but this is basically a room in someone’s home. We didn’t have an opportunity to talk with Charlie but did with Sonja in the morning. She is very friendly and loves to cook for her guests. She made blueberry muffin tops and fruit but that was just the starter. Apparently, she cooks a full breakfast made to order with eggs, omelets, French toast and bacon. Whatever you want. We declined because we just don’t eat that much. I fell bad with my three star rating but when you walk in and encounter and an ironing board in the hall with stuff on it and no where to go but your room it just wasn’t to our liking. It seems strange that there are no reviews in recent years.
Arriving to A Peace of Heaven, felt welcomed from the moment we drove in approaching the beautiful gardens around the house. The room was extremely clean and well kept. Appreciated having a separate entrance. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful; took it all in sitting on a bench overlooking the back pond. Sonja is a wonderful host; her breakfasts are memorable as well as her stories! Felt like we were staying at one of favourite relatives. Loved the collection of hummingbird feeders on the back porch; an opportunity to relax and observe these magnificent birds. Would highly recommend this tranquil and friendly B&B.
I've hesitated to write this review because I wish to do so with tact and respect. I would not write it, but if feels an injustice to not warn other travelers as there are not many other options once you get there, and all the other reviews are glowing, so we had no idea what we were in for when we arrived. (Totally recommend the Errol Motel, which is where we ended up with luck on our side.) And perhaps if the owners read it, they might become aware of an issue that I think may be new since the previous reviewers stayed there. So here goes. Having traveled to more than fifty countries between the two of us and 34 together, my partner and I do our research before booking places. Thus, we booked this B and B on a family trip to introduce my mom and her sisters to the joy that is B and Bs. It had glowing Trip Advisor reviews, so it never even occurred to us to expect anything but "A Peace of Heaven."
I walked in first and was hit by two things: 1. the worst odor I have ever encountered in my life and 2. a dark, cluttered, very lived-in living room. It is the first that drove us all out as quickly as possible. I'm not sure if there was a recent death or illness, but it would seem so. My apologies for any loss or illness that did cause this odor. Or, perhaps there is a dead animal lodged somewhere...I really don't know, but I do think some serious issue is causing this, and because they live there, they don't notice it (though I really don't know how that would be possible unless they have no sense of smell, which I know is a condition that exists). Let me be clear, it is not a sensitivity to smell on one individual's part. Believe me, I hoped that no one else could smell it as I entered, but there were 6 of us, and others could bare it less than I could.
One reason we chose this B and B is that one of my aunts is in a wheelchair and they have an ADA room. However, the bed was recently changed and was now a bit high for her to get into. This was the reason we gave for leaving, but in truth, it was the odor. However, a high bed could be a reason not to book it if someone is in a wheelchair and has limited mobility. They offered the living room couch as an alternative place for my aunt to sleep...
Another negative was mosquitoes. We really couldn't have sat outside and enjoyed ourselves.
The positives: the rooms themselves looked clean and well-kept.
