The Ideal New Hampshire Cottage
Woodbury Cottage - just steps from the Bedford Village Inn and Restaurant in New Hampshire, yet a world away… The elegantly preserved Federal-style Colonial Cottage was completely renovated in 2004 and has eight main rooms, each custom furnished, with charming details - ideal New Hampshire lodging for the most discerning travelers. As you walk through this mid-18th century home, you can’t fail to see how well the historic details were preserved and the romance of the times captured in this charming New Hampshire cottage. Yet the needs of today’s guests
Three distinctive bedrooms and a one-of-a-kind berth, which we have named in honor of past owners, wait upstairs to delight you with a unique New Hampshire lodging experience. Each offers its own special personal amenities. Open beams and wide pine floors characterize the Tenny Room – what else would you expect from this charming New England cottage? Whimsical wall coverings and accent pieces of Americana surround its plush queen-sized bed with antique quilt and embroidered pillows. For a slightly more elegant setting, the Woodbury Cottage offers the Fearon Room with its warm creams and yellows that dramatize wide pine floors.
Among rich antique furnishings is a beautifully carved four-posted peacock maple queen-sized bed. The Victorian Berth is a little room in which Anaïs Nin might have been inspired – a dainty sanctuary of rose medallion wall coverings, hand-painted accents and a twin bed chamber a coucher daringly whispers secrets long anticipated. Finally, the Woodbury Cottage’s master suite: The Van Loan Room welcomes and embraces its guests with a polished match wood floor and a window seat from which to watch and dream. The king-size sleigh bed is crowned with a rose-colored canopy valance and presides over a coterie of carefully chosen accent pieces.
At the Woodbury Cottage, Bedford’s newest and most elegant guest cottage, long-held traditions of our hospitality and New England history offer an exceptional New Hampshire lodging experience destined to be remembered for ages.
Pass beneath its agéd lintel, that with mantle bears fierce pride
Its fires lit historic speeches- walls sheltered those who wished to hide.
Now again the craftsman’s hammer strikes the nail and laps the wood
The years move on yet lodger’s needs for peace and warmth are under-stood.
Retreat or mingle – dine or plan – relaxed or formal discipline,
Perspectives change and so can guests when sheltered from a savage wind.
Eight rooms to walk, see from their eyes a countryside of gentle mien
And hear in whispers from the beams the joys of coming home again.
