Looking for a fun getaway to surprise the special man in your life? Pack him up and surprise him with a night or two away at Chesterfield Inn. The area surrounding our New Hampshire Inn & Restaurant has lots to offer in the way of “guy” activities: from golf to mountain biking to kayaking to a night at the local pub!
You can start the day with a hearty breakfast in our sunny dining room. Our B&B offers everything from yogurt and granola to pancakes, omelettes, home fries, and sausage to make sure he won’t be able to leave hungry! And don’t forget the homemade muffins and scones!
Then off for a round of golf at one of our local golf courses. You can book our Special Discount at Brattleboro Country Club in nearby Brattleboro, VT or head to Crumpin Fox in Bernardston, MA, Hooper Golf Course in Walpole, NH, or Bretwood in Keene, NH. All of these courses offer unique challenges and extensive natural beauty.
In the afternoon, grab your hiking boots or mountain bikes and head into Pisgah State Park right here in Chesterfield. The terrain is vast (13,000 acres) and the trails well maintained with lots of ups and downs. This park is never crowded and remains one of the best kept secrets about this corner of New Hampshire.
After all this activity, you’ll need a shower and a nap back in your comfy room at the inn. In the early evening head over to McNeill’s Brewery in Brattleboro to sample some locally made beers. Brattleboro also boasts the Flat Street Brew Pub featuring Berkshire Brewing Company beers made in nearby Deerfield, MA.
After a relaxing evening drink, head back to the inn for a romantic dinner out on our terrace. He will definitely love the delicious rack of lamb or savory beef tenderloin, and a bottle of Catena Malbec from our wine list is sure to please. Retire to your room to enjoy the fireplace or a soak in your 2 person Jacuzzi. You’ll both sleep well after such an action packed day!

Now that the snow has finally melted, golf season has begun in Northern New England. There are several beautiful public golf courses within a 20 minute drive from the Chesterfield Inn and the closest is the Brattleboro Country Club in Brattleboro, VT. In partnership with the Brattleboro Country Club, the Chesterfield Inn is offering $20 off of an 18 hole round of golf at the club.
The course is beautifully maintained and offers challenges for beginners and experienced players alike, with short and long holes, elevated tee shots, and lots of hills to walk or ride up and down in your golf cart. The course is surrounded by the rolling hills of Southern Vermont, and has many places to sit and enjoy the beauty of the woods bordering the course. The club also has two practice greens and a large driving range if you’d like to warm up before your round.
So pack up your golf clubs and enjoy a relaxing weekend, golfing in the daytime, and returning to our luxurious New Hampshire Inn after a great round, to relax and enjoy dinner on our terrace.

If you’re interested in eating healthy local foods, and supporting the farmers who produce that food, or if you just like a parade with lots of cute animals, come to Brattleboro the first weekend of June from the 3rd through the 5th for the annual Strolling of the Heifers. This annual event, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, has been delighting guests of our New Hampshire B&B for years and is not to be missed!
There are many events planned for the weekend, but the centerpiece is “the Stroll”, a parade held on Saturday morning, which features about 100 cows and heifers, as well as other farm animals, farm machinery, bands, and local organizations. The parade ends at the Brattleboro Common, where you can enjoy samples of local foods and products, maybe pet a heifer or two, or watch a politician try to milk a cow.
This year, the “Stroll” is preceded by the Slow Living Summit, which will feature distinguished speakers who are all interested in, and striving for, a sustainable future. The Slow Living Summit will take place from June 1st – 3rd in conjunction with Marlboro College and the School for International Training.
So mark your calendars, book a stay at our romantic New Hampshire Bed and Breakfast in nearby Chesterfield, and come to Brattleboro for the weekend to enjoy all of the various activities involved with the Strolling of the Heifers!
