The State of New Hampshire imposes an 8.5% Rooms and Meals tax. This 8.5% tax is applied in addition to the room rates listed above.


A 7% Gratuity fee is added to your nightly rate to ensure our Housekeeping Staff is well compensated for their valiant efforts in providing a sanitary and comfortable stay.


Typically, a deposit of one or two nights’ room charges, depending upon the length of the stay, is charged at the time of the reservation. Any remaining balance due is charged at the time of check-out.

Minimum Stay Requirements

On weekends in peak seasons, a minimum of a two-night stay is generally required. On some long holiday weekends, a three-night stay may be required. Please call or email to inquire about any minimum-stay requirements for the specific dates you are considering.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations made within 48 hours will receive a full refund. Cancellations made outside of the cancellation window will result in no charges. If you cancel your reservation within the cancellation window, then you will be charged for all room nights reserved, unless we can re-sell the room nights to someone else.


Check-in time is between 3 pm and 8 pm. This is to allow us time to properly prepare your room after the prior guests depart. If you would like to arrive before 3 pm, you must notify us in advance, or risk that no one will be available to assist you. If you think that you will be arriving after 8 pm, please notify us so that we can make arrangements for you to get in.


Check-out time is at 11 am. You may, however, leave bags with us and utilize one of our downstairs bathrooms if you would like to change after a day of recreation or sightseeing.

Smoking Policy

Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside any of the Dexter’s Inn buildings. A smoking fee of $300 will apply to guests who smoke in their room. Guests are welcome to smoke anywhere outside.
