AAA FOUR DIAMOND
NEW HAMPSHIRE, OFF THE BEATEN PATH
"Its new owners have made Adair into an exceptional inn, with elegance, comfort, and noticeable warmth. Original artwork decorates the eight tasteful rooms. Spacious parlors and the gardens and lawns of the estate create an atmosphere designed for relaxation. A stay here is well worth the higher-than-average rates. Adair has lured Tim and Biruta Carr, owners of Tim-bir Alley restaurant, to move into the inn's two elegant dining rooms. Formerly in Littleton, Tim-bir Alley provides an exceptional dining experience.
NEW ENGLAND'S BEST
"The country-estate-style guest rooms on the second and third floors, all with king and queen beds, are stylishly decorated and comfortable. We enjoyed the front Lafayette Room, a commodious affair including a queen size poster bed, a large sitting area with a gas stove and a bath with oversize soaking tub.

"A grand house in the truest sense, Adair exudes serenity and good breeding. You're instantly seduced by the winding approach through rolling lawns and landscaped gardens..."
NEW HAMPSHIRE MAGAZINE, December/January, 2002. "Great Country Inns to Dine For"
"Although the food is frequently cited as some of the best in the region, you must really show some restraint with the entrees, because the most secret delights of this delightful inn are the incredible desserts like the mango chutney cheesecake or the pear and white chocolate bread pudding with brandy caramel sauce."
SKI MAGAZINE, September, 2001
"Of the 10 rooms named for local mountains, I favor Lafayette, a sunlit suitelet (it used to be two rooms) with a cherry four-poster at one end, a cast-iron fireplace at the other and an inviting loveseat in between. Bring on the novels and bonbons! Both of which might also be enjoyed, along with other pleasurable activities, in the two-person soaking tub."
TRAVEL AND LEISURE, December, 2001
"This scrupulously tidy inn, not far from the center of Bethlehem, was a favorite getaway of the urban rich before World War I. Request a room that faces the White Mountains."
CONNECTICUT MAGAZINE, November, 1999
"Weekend Getaways to Cozy Country Inns"
"Nestled in its own little world on 200 acres, this luxury inn calls to the weary traveler from a snowy hilltop. Our warm greeting from innkeepers Judy and Bill Whitman felt more like a great big hug .. each room is exquisitely decorated with antiques and reproductions and has its own private bath ... personal touches abound ... we didn't have far to go for a four-star meal. Tim-bir Alley, a restaurant that rents the inn's dining room, serves dinner in season. Dress is casual; the food is anything but ..."

"Californians Find Fall Foliage Fantastic"
"After further sightseeing in Franconia Notch, we drove to Bethlehem, on the periphery of the national forest, to the highly touted Adair Inn. This proved to be a trip highlight."
TRAVEL, Spring/Summer, 1999
"The 200-acre estate of Adair in Bethlehem opens its wrought-iron gates to guests with amenities ranging from superb dining to mountain views from each of the bedrooms."
YANKEE, January, 1998
"The Adair is a little piece of heaven in the White Mountains. Located in Bethlehem, New Hampshire, this is the inn Rick Litchfield chose for last year's reunion with his brother ... 'he wanted to be right in the White Mountains, and I wanted luxury. The Adair was the place'."
GOURMET MAGAZINE, July, 1997
"It is past tea time when we arrive at Adair Country Inn, an elegant place a couple of miles from the town of Bethlehem .. We sleep in "Dalton", a lovely king-bedded room with views of Mt. Washington, the tennis court, and gardens landscaped by the Olmsted brothers ..."
TRAVEL GUIDE, 1995
"... A country inn since 1992, Adair offers eight plush guest rooms, a backyard designed by the Olmsted Brothers, 200 acres of grounds, and service that earned a four-diamond AAA rating ... This is one B&B that does not cut corners; tasteful and spacious. It's worth the price."
