Henniker House is a bed & breakfast, meaning we’re different from a hotel, motel or hostel. We’re happy to share this historic residence here on the Contoocook River with you, and want you to feel at ease and enjoy your stay. A review of our policies will help ensure that your visit is a great one.

  • Ted the Standard Poodle enjoys being the only B&B pet. We can refer you to A Precious Pet Resort and Peace and Paws if you are traveling with your pet. A note to guests with allergies: Ted does not shed, and does not have access to the guest bedrooms.
  • Your reservation will be secured by credit card. Should you cancel with fewer than 21 days notice, a cancellation fee will apply. For standard dates, the cancellation fee will be calculated based on a single night’s stay or half of the scheduled stay, whichever is greater. For holiday/special event dates, the cancellation fee will be equal to the cost of the minimum stay.
  • Henniker House is entirely smoke free.
  • The house and property are for the use and enjoyment of registered guests only.
  • Small children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
  • Check-in time is between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. Please call us if your arrival time changes.
  • Check-out time is 11:00 am.
  • A delicious free breakfast is served in the solarium every morning of your stay.
  • Though we try, we may not be able to meet all special dietary requirements. There is, however, a refrigerator available for guests’ use.
  • Self-serve tea and coffee are available. Be sure to ask on check-in so we can show you the set up.
