Dover, New Hampshire is a great place to visit this summer because of the many things available to do there. The historic Woodman Museum on Central Avenue is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. The museum features art displays and exhibits highlighting local talent and the city’s history.
The setting is a unique assortment of stunning mid nineteenth century houses. Hikers can enjoy the beautiful Dover Community Trail, starting at Fisher Street and moving north through the densely wooded area toward Folsom Street. This challenging hike cuts through Silver Street continuing on to the Dover Public Library and finally Henry Law Park.
Silver Street is also home to the elegant Silver Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor. For those who appreciate old New England charm, this is the place to stay after your busy day in Dover. When you enter the courtyard, it takes you back to a different time with architectural features like Honduran mahogany paneling and marble baseboards. You know you’re immersed in elegance when you open the front door and notice the leaded glass windowed foyer and Austrian hand-cut crystal door knobs.
Once you’ve adjusted to the plush atmosphere, you can choose between ten exquisitely decorated rooms. The Chamber is the largest room, with a king-sized canopied bed, cherry wood armoire, large full bath and electric fireplace. Extras and add-on services give you a chance to sample the best of what The Silver Fountain Inn and Tea Parlor has to offer, including in-room breakfast, rose petals and champagne. Romantic getaway packages and bakery services are options as well. You know you’re in for something special when you stay at The Silver Fountain Inn, and don’t forget to make your Tea Parlor reservation!
