Thoughtful & Hospitable

“I spent the night at the Silver Fountain Inn by accident: they accommodated me on an hour’s notice after another hotel lost my reservation. That hospitality was echoed throughout my brief stay, during which the proprietors went OVER & ABOVE to make my experience pleasant. (I was astonished that one of them cleared the snow off my car, knowing that I was in a hurry to get to work in the morning.):

Here is one review by a recent guest who joined us for this incredible weekend long experience (From Tripadvisor):

Cozy, Great Location, Excellent Breakfast

“Jim and Pam were excellent hosts. We came for a murder mystery weekend, which was a lot of fun! We’ll definitely be back. The “Chamber” room was very large with a huge bathroom. The private entrance with private porch was adorable. The entire B&B has gorgeous, Victorian decor and the breakfast is not to be missed. The location is great for walking into town. Dover is very cute and there are plenty of great restaurants and places to shop.”
