One of the best values in North Conway, Buttonwood Inn is clean, comfortable, cozy, friendly, and warm. The rooms are country cute, with several featuring extra twin beds and others with room for rollaways; several also have private Jacuzzi tubs. The inn also features a lounge area with fireplace and spacious backyard with Adirondack chairs overlooking a large pool with a view of the mountains.

Stayed 3 nights. Great breakfast. Got to visit with other guests at breakfast. Hiked during the day, came back to the Inn for sweet treats in late afternoon and a refreshing dip in the pool. Inn keepers had good suggestions for dinner. Went to local theater , tickets emailed to the Inn and were brought to our room. Will definitely be back!
We were fortunate to have stumbled into an opportunity to book at Buttonwood Inn while randomly searching for a place on trip advisors with a good rating at a convenient location. What we loved about it: #1 CLEAN, which leads to one's being able to completely let down and relax whether in the bedroom, the living room, or the dining room or the garden. It's an old country house with modern amenities, and I imagine it would require exceptionally detailed attention to keep all the nooks and crannies dust-free and I'm amazed--and grateful--they have gotten it down. We were able to truly relax our mind, body, and soul in the house after our daily activities. #2 Breakfast: Paula is a thoughtful and excellent chef. The menu changes daily (features a main course alternating between savory and sweet) and it's obvious she loves what she does. You will hear/see her working in the kitchen like you see an artist in her studio all day, but she is very accessible if you need her help, because the kitchen is centrally located in the house. You can communicate about your dietary restrictions when you check in (we didn't have any but we noticed other guests did), and she will accommodate accordingly so everyone can enjoy her delicious home cooked breakfast with fresh local ingredients. In summary, 10 out 10 scores for BED and BREAKFAST.
Bill and Paula were helpful with recommendations for local things to do and places to eat, and respectful of the guests' privacy. They thought of all amenities that guests might need, and we took advantage of whatever we felt like, including playing the piano and guitar in the den, singing away our favorite Broadway classics. I could see why people would come back here as regular guests over the years, which we have noticed from the guest book. Thanks, Bill and Paula, for making our stay exceptionally restful.
