Inn by the Bandstand
The award-winning Inn by the Bandstand is the premier lodging establishment in Exeter, New Hampshire. This wonderful inn is an 1809 historic home located in the heart of downtown Exeter. Only two blocks from the prestigious Phillips Exeter Academy, eight miles to the seacoast and beaches, and 20 minutes from Portsmouth, this charming inn offers nine antique furnished guest rooms, all with private baths and a delicious full breakfast. We have all the modern conveniences with a touch of the past including wireless internet!
The inn is a reminder of days when the world moved a bit slower and the people were friendlier. It is surrounded by quaint shops, fine restaurants. You can explore our downtown bookstore, toy store, Chocolatier, Exeter Fine Crafts and many fine gift shops such as Serendipty which offers green and fair trade items from around the world. Stroll around the river walk near the Academy boat house or have a picnic in the park. We also have the American Independence Museum and museum shop, plus historical self-guided tours to broaden your knowledge and interest of this area and its importance in our nation's founding history.
