If you seek a quintessential New England setting, this is the place. The Inn is restored to grant this ambiance and more. The history of the location, the ample grounds to wander around are great.
You must say "Hi" to the Inn's goats. They are precious. There wonderful places to sit, read and relax. From the gazebo to the ample Adirondack chairs sprinkled throughout the grounds. you will find your favorite place to just hang out.
We choose the Carriage House suite room with Jacuzzi and fireplace. This was a spacious room and the bed was so comfortable. The main Inn rooms are beautiful also.
The maids are so nice and they keep this Inn spotless. Many thanks to them. They were like ghosts. You would leave the room for breakfast and when you returned the room was made up so neat. Magic!
The proprietors, Jeff & Bruce are so sweet and kind. My wife and I felt at home from check-in. This is a foodies delight. Delicious food!
You must make a point to stay here!

We found the inn on Travel Zoo and we were glad we went. If you love the charm of a well kept extremely clean 200 year old country inn, then you will love it here.
It is almost a step back in time with the wide pine floors, antique furniture and great inn keepers who made you feel at home.
My room was up stairs. I don't think there is an elevator so I don't know about wheel chair access but one room was on the ground floor. Call and ask.
It room was plenty large with a gas fireplace. I loved the bed linen and the mattress was very comfortable. The bathroom was bright with only a shower, which didn't matter to us. Nice towels and toiletries. The room was bright during the day and had enough lighting for night. We had a nice view of the yard from the window. There was a plate of cookies in the room to greet us.
We traveled with another couple who loved their wood fireplace. Their room was lovely too. We walked through the back yard, barn, visited the goats who are adorable.
Dinner was excellent--fine dining and it was part of our package. We had steak and scallops and great dessert. We truly enjoyed every bite. Great service too.
Breakfast was buffet and the server took our egg or French toast orders. Great food.
No televisions in the room but we had a better time without it enjoying good conversation. There was a television in one of the parlors along with games, books, and guests to enjoy.
Would I return?? OH YES!

This restaurant is gourmet food at its best. Delicious food made from local farms. The food is always fresh and top notch. This being said, the meal can be expensive but in my experience, you get what you pay for in life.

I live in the area and have been to the Colby hill Inn half a dozen times since it opened under new owners/management. While the food has always been good and inspiring, I have not always been impressed with the service and was frustrated by the long periods of waiting while dining there.
Went there last month and was completely and utterly impressed! Colby Hill In has stepped up in every way and our waitress , Sue, was very attentive and efficient in every way. The food was certainly the best food that we have had in then concord area in years!
CHI offers farm to table and there is something for everyone andall dishes are prepared with a twist away from the ordinary.
Do not pass this one up, it is extraordinary.
We will be back again and again.

Thank you so much for the kind review! Yes, we are extremely happy with our current team of servers: Sue, Kelly and Caitlin (and often myself). The full team is now taking orders directly at tables with their ipads so that the kitchen receives the order as the server is walking away from your table. We very much care about local residents coming here regularly, so please feel free to bring address anything with me - we want this to be a place you love coming to! - Kindly, Jeff

I went to the Argentinian wine dinner this past Friday night and was blown away by the wine, food and service.

The night started out with a scallop ceviche that was so fresh and filled with flavor. The presentation was beautiful with the plantain chips. I also had Pumpkin Gnocchi that was out of this world- I loved the maple syrup/cider reduction that was on it. Third and fourth courses were Lamb Empanadas and Carne Asada. Dessert was amazing, my favorite was the mini spiced chocolate pot de crème.

What really stood out to me about this dinner was that the actual owner/wine maker was there from Argentina and he spoke about his family and the vineyard. It was really neat to be drinking the wine and hearing the story of how it came to be. Another thing I really enjoyed was that Chef Bruce Barnes came out with every course to talk about the food and its relevance to the culture in Argentina.

I would highly check out one of these wine dinners that are hosted once a month. I cannot wait to go back!
