Colby Hill Inn is an ECO retreat and Dining Destination in Henniker, NH.
We offer 14 charming guest rooms and operate The Grazing Room restaurant - one of three gold-level certified farm-to-table restaurants in the state. In addition to 56 dinner seats, we offer a Wine Lounge with an original fireplace for guests who may just want to enjoy some drinks and appetizers. We have created special places throughout our property to elevate your dining experience unlike any other, and our wine dinner parties are events not to be missed. We provide full in-house wedding and event planning services for parties up to 130 guests. We also cater to romantic couples, families, private meetings, people who are looking for outdoor recreation, and foodies who are seeking an innovative meal crafted from local foods and to use the inn as a base for some foodie touring.
Our six-acre property dates back to 1797 and includes:
former dairy barn dating back to the 1840s (now an event hall)
perennial gardens with a gazebo and rose arbor
outdoor patio with fire pit
a stone sculpture garden (with bocce court coming in 2022)
meadows with a creek
views of fields and rolling hills with amazing sunsets
organic produce gardens
an outdoor swimming pool
8 French Alpine goats (Gertrude, Lucy, Annabelle, Chloe, Emily, Penelope, Willow, and Jacques)
27 chickens and 1 barn cat (Roy)
We cater to romantic couples, families, private meetings or events, including weddings, people who are looking for outdoor recreation, and foodies who are seeking an innovative meal crafted from local foods. We sit on the scenic and historic Currier and Ives Byway. Since we are located in nearly the geographical center of New England, only 90 minutes from Boston and 35 minutes from the Manchester airport, we are the perfect location for exploring the best of New England. For the active guest, we are surrounded by opportunities for swimming, hiking, biking, skiing, and kayaking. Within an hour, you can enjoy a day at the beach. Of course, you may not want to leave the property at all - so, order a picnic and enjoy some solitude on a blanket, play some board games in the parlor by the fire, or ask to borrow some snowshoes in the winter.
My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding--our first night as husband and wife! It was wonderful, we stayed in Carriage Suite II (which was beyond amazing, not to mention very clean and comfortable)! Before heading out in the morning we had a scrumptious breakfast. The gentleman working there who assisted us when we arrived and waited on us for breakfast in the morning was friendly, professional, and respectful. Colby Hill Inn was very accommodating, and we're so grateful!
My family had a lovely stay at The Colby Hill Inn last week. The historic property is delightful and the grounds are gorgeous. A highlight for the kids was interacting with the resident goats. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. If I lived closer I would eat there often! Thanks for a wonderful stay Bruce and Jeff!
We had our wedding at Colby Hill Inn it was an amazing experience the Owners were very attentive and very accommodating. Their staff was wonderful and made sure we were well taken care of. Lastly, the food blew us a way we couldn't help ourselves as we had to sample everyone's food around us just to enjoy every bite. My now wife and I will be booking another room in the near future
