MORE THAN 220 YEARS OF HISTORY
Staying at the historic Bridges Inn brings back memories of a simpler time. The Bridges Inn at Whitcomb House features antiques and furnishings which makes each visit memorable.
This historic house, called the “Old Mansion” and “Stratton Place” over the years, was built circa 1792 by Richard Stratton, the wealthy owner of a cotton and woolen mill in the village of West Swanzey. Richard Stratton’s son, John, married Susannah Whitcomb and they lived in the “Old Mansion.”

A New England Gem
The Bridges is the quintessential New England inn in every delightful sense of that image. From the luscious scenery to the period decor to the outstanding food, Susan, David and Nick provide a warm, welcoming and sincere atmosphere and experience that truly defines “hospitality.” There wasn’t a single aspect of our stay that could be improved upon (other than the fact that we rued not being able to have their breakfast three meals a day!) If your travels take you anywhere near Swanzey, NH, the Bridges is the must-stay destination in the area…your one regret will be that you didn’t stay longer!
Dennis A, Madison, WI
Perfect and delightful!
The owners were an absolute delight and easy to deal with. They were extremely accommodating to everyone’s needs, and their BnB is beautiful! Susan, Nick and David go above and beyond with the variety of breakfast food, from how tasty everything is to the presentation. We would highly recommend staying at the Whitcomb — best place in the area hands down!
