The Goddard Mansion Bed and Breakfast offers an intimate
and rare atmosphere of elegance and friendliness. 

It was the year 1905. Teddy Roosevelt was President of the 45 United States. Robert Peary and the Wright brothers were making their mark on history. It was a special, prosperous time with little suggestion of the changes to come. In Claremont, N.H., Frank Maynard, an affluent industrialist, completed his summer home, an 18-room mansion with porches all around, acres of lawn, and of course, a gazebo. To spend a summer at this lavish dwelling would be to relax in the elegant surroundings reserved for the elite.

Guests can enjoy the living room and its four and one-half foot fireplace and baby grand piano, as well as the sitting room and the library. 

Today, a stay in Mr. Maynard's mansion is more accessible. Restored to reflect the easy but refined lifestyle of early 1900's affluence, it has become a bed and breakfast. The Goddard Mansion (renamed for a late owner of both the mansion and Goddard Bakery, the bakers of Sunbeam Bread) is ready for your holiday from the world. 

All of its guestrooms are unique and memorable, and many have a panoramic view of mountains in both New Hampshire and nearby Vermont. Each room is decorated differently, and they range from the light and airy French Country Room to the surreal Cloud Room. The Victorian and Laura Ashley Rooms describe themselves, and the entire family can spend the night in the Family Room, with its extra beds. 

After a blissful night's sleep, you will want to begin the day with the Goddard Mansion's very special breakfast.

You'll enjoy a natural breakfast with such delights as homemade muffins served with preserves made from fruit grown on the property, fresh fruit and whole-grain cereals served family style in the Tiffany-lit dining room.

You'll get a fresh start on a fresh day exploring New Hampshire and nearby Vermont.

The Goddard Mansion Bed & Breakfast is located in the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee region of New Hampshire, an area filled with both summer and winter recreational and cultural opportunities. You can spend your days just sitting on our porch looking at the mountains, or you can hike or ski down those same slopes, depending on the season. You may swim or play golf, bike or play tennis, all within a few miles of "home." Explore some back roads and maybe an antique shop or auction. Take along a picnic lunch, because you'll see lots of good places to stop. And in the fall, the foliage will provide the camera buff with shots that will be treasured forever. In the winter months, both cross country and alpine skiing are available within a short drive.
