~Tami Dowd, Innkeeper
The Dowds' Country Inn & Event Center is located "On the Common" in beautiful Lyme, NH. Our Inn sits on 6.5 acres of land-with extensive walking paths, fields, stonewalls, gardens and stone patios, and a duck pond. The building, constructed in 1780, was designed as a private estate for use as a farm.
In 1989, Innkeeper Tami Dowd purchased the property and renovated the farmhouse into a 20 room inn. She sought to create a relaxing atmosphere in which guests could escape the influences of stressful daily life.
Our 20 well-appointed guest rooms have at least one queen-sized bed - with other rooms hosting a combination of queen, twin and king-sized beds. All of our rooms are decorated with hand-made quilts, stenciled walls and country decor, and each hosts a private bath, seasonal air conditioning, telephone, voicemail, and high-speed wireless internet.
Our room rates include a full country breakfast, afternoon tea and N.H. State Taxes. Start your day with a cup of fresh brewed coffee, then enjoy an option off our breakfast menu; the omelet of the day, waffles, French toast or pancakes served with local maple syrup, fresh-baked muffins and hand-cut fruit, all served in our sunny breakfast room. In the afternoon, treat yourself to tea with homemade scones by the fire in our common area, the "Carriage House".
Enjoy the perfect combination of New England charm and modern convenience when you stay at the Dowds' Country Inn. Join us today for a true home-away-from-home experience.
