Situated along the scenic Nubanusit River just one mile from downtown Peterborough, Little River B&B offers its guests a peaceful getaway as well as easy access to the quaint, yet lively town of Peterborough. Once a part of the MacDowell Artists Colony, this
1870s farmhouse was fully renovated in 2006 and has been continually updated since. Some of the updates include individual heating zones in guest rooms, a full fire safety sprinkler system, high quality insulated Marvin windows throughout, a re-graded and repaved parking lot and much more. Little River B&B offers four comfortably elegant guest rooms with modern amenities and ample additional guest space. For the innkeepers, there is a well-equipped open kitchen, laundry area, and plenty of storage, including a walk-in attic. The newly-built private and detached owners quarters are exceptional.

In the B&B, each of the four guest rooms currently features a Queen-size bed, attached private bath and either river views, a gas stove fireplace or both. Additional guest spaces include a light-filled dining room with an exterior deck overlooking the river, a living
room with wood-burning fireplace, and a bright and airy second-floor sunroom. The B&B has potential to expand to up to six guest rooms with a two bedroom suite (with private bath) on the third floor and an attached garage that could be turned into a private entrance suite. Built new in 2014, the architect-designed Carriage House (owners quarters) has great natural light, views of the river with its changing wildlife.
Peterborough, a quintessential New England town located in southern New Hampshire, is known as “Our Town” because Thornton Wilder spent many summers locally writing at the world-famous MacDowell Art Colony and Peterborough provided inspiration for his
classic American play. The downtown is pedestrian-friendly and filled with independent shops and restaurants. The town and region are an arts and culture destination with its live theater, music, galleries, antique stores, etc. But there is more, the region is named
for Mount Monadnock, the most climbed mountain in North America.
