The Space

Your guest room is located in a recently renovated 1870s farmhouse situated along the scenic Nubanusit River in Peterborough, New Hampshire. We offer modern amenities (free high-speed wifi, in-room TVs, independent climate control), casual elegance, and warm hospitality. Each room features a queen-size bed and attached private bath. We serve a delicious multi-course breakfast every day, including fresh fruit, a delicious baked good or our homemade granola, and one of our signature entrees like Blueberry Baked French Toast, Summer Vegetable Strata, or French Baked Egg. We use local eggs, fruits, and vegetables as much as possible, and offer locally-roasted fair-trade organic coffee. There are snacks and home baked cookies available for guests all the time as well as tea and hot chocolate.

Guest Access

Guests can enjoy their private room as well as all of the common spaces at the B&B (sunroom, living room, dining room, outdoor river deck and the Adirondack chairs by the river).

Interaction with Guests

Your hosts live onsite and are around the B&B much of the time. We love to visit with our guests, but guests can interact or not interact with us as much or as little as they choose. We have four guest rooms so it is likely you might meet other guests on the property as well.

The Neighborhood

Peterborough is a quintessential New England town which inspired Thornton Wilder's classic American play "Our Town" and has a pedestrian friendly downtown that is rich in the arts and cultural activities. Browse antique shops, shop in unique boutiques and art galleries, and enjoy great dining with a variety of cuisines available. There is something for everyone in our quintessential New England town.

Located in the Monadnock region, the undiscovered Southwest corner of NH, there are many opportunities to get outdoors. Hike Grand Monadnock (the most popular hiking in the U.S. with forty miles of trails and panoramic views of six New England States) and the rest of the Wapack Range, kayak the Contoocook river or some of our lakes and ponds, golf, bike, enjoy back-road scenic Fall Foliage, or just lay back and unwind in the serenity of the region.

Getting Around

People love to walk around Peterborough but it is a hard place to visit without private transportation. There are taxi services that service the region that can be arranged if needed.

Your Host



Peterborough, New Hampshire, United States · Member since December 2013

My wife Paula and I are your hosts at Little River B&B. We talked about being innkeepers for many years before buying and renovating our house to create the B&B. We love Peterborough and the Monadnock Region because it has a bit of most everything we love to do: hiking, kayaking, cycling, geocaching, live theater, art, unique dining experiences and many other things. We love hosting guests and helping make their visit to the area as perfect for them as possible. If you have a specific interest, let us know and we will do our best to help you find just what you need.
