WE’RE JUST FIVE SHORT MILES FROM DOWNTOWN KEENE

Built in 1792, this quintessential inn serves as a comfortable home-away-from-home, repeatedly satisfying tourists, business travelers, students, people visiting family or friends, and other visitors. The delicious multi-course breakfast, warm hospitality, and various local attractions inspire guests to return year after year. .

This charming inn with Victorian touches is situated in the quaint and quiet village of West Swanzey, five miles from downtown Keene and a stone’s throw from the historic Thompson Covered Bridge. The décor of this building is lovely with uniquely decorated rooms, tin ceiling, and many antiques. There are five beautifully decorated guest rooms, each with private bath, and each named for one of the nearby covered bridges for which the inn is named. All guest rooms are on the second floor; the house was built in 1792 and was not designed for accessibility.

YOUR HOME . . . AWAY FROM HOME

Our goal is to make you feel at home. The décor of The Bridges Inn is lovely, featuring uniquely decorated rooms, tin ceilings, and many antiques. One of our bathrooms has a tin tub, which is reputed to be the oldest tin tub in Swanzey.

Nestled in the beautiful Monadnock region, the Bridges Inn is near outdoor activities, dozens of unique restaurants, arts & cultural events, auction houses, antique shops, covered bridges, scenic countryside, and more.

EACH OF OUR GUEST ROOMS (WITH PRIVATE BATH) IS UNIQUE

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!

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!

Improvements to the Exterior of the Inn

We love to keep the Bridges Inn in tip-top shape both inside and out. We’re continually upgrading and improving the interior of the building. In Spring 2018, we concentrated on the exterior, tackling some much-needed work on the grounds.

Still Screaming for Ice Cream

The Monadnock Region has an abundance of ice cream shops, most of which we made it to this summer.
