This charming inn with Victorian touches is situated in the quaint and quiet village of West Swanzey, five miles from downtown Keene and a stone's throw from the historic Thompson Covered Bridge. There are five beautifully decorated guest rooms, each with private bath, and each named for one of the nearby covered bridges for which the inn is named.
Our guests love our bountiful, scrumptious, breakfasts typically served in the formal dining room on bone china with sterling silver and linen tablecloth and napkins. Or on a warm summer morning, the screened-in porch makes a lovely spot for eating. Breakfast fare is abundant, with plenty of fresh fruit, and a variety of dishes from eggs to homemade bread and scones. We use fresh herbs and many locally produced ingredients and products. We encourage our guests to inform us of any dietary restrictions and requests in advance so we can be prepared for them.
The décor of this building is lovely with uniquely decorated rooms, tin ceiling, and many antiques. One of the bathrooms has a tin tub which is reputed to be the oldest tin tub in Swanzey. More about our history...

Maple Sugaring Season: The nights are still cold but the temperatures during the day are warmer, the perfect conditions for tapping the maple trees. The sugar houses have begun gathering sap and boiling it down to make maple syrup. Join us for a fun weekend during maple sugaring season at the Bridges Inn, where you'll enjoy a memorable breakfast with maple syrup.
