The Dowds' Country Inn & Event Center Logo

A family owned bed & breakfast serving the Upper Valley for nearly 30 years.


The Dowds' Country Inn, known also as the Latham House, is an historic home that was renovated in 1989 into a quaint, country bed & breakfast. It has since grown into a 20 room establishment with a 200 seat banquet hall hosting catered receptions & banquets from weddings to company parties. In 2016, the Dowd family added a new extension to the building and opened the Latham House Tavern, a public house offering hearty american fare, a full bar, and eighteen craft beers drawn through traditional English Beer Engines. The Dowd family & staff seek to provide a home-away-from-home experience with home-spun, NH hospitality.
