At the Sunny Grange B&B, located in Campton New Hampshire, our guests are our top priority. We're happy to provide those extra touches to make your stay a special one. Each morning you'll enjoy a full breakfast. Our breakfast hours are normally 8-9:30 but we may be able to accommodate other hours with advanced request. Coffee is available anytime. Typically, breakfast also includes fresh fruit and fruit juices and a choice of hot entree like our cream cheese-stuffed French toast, Maine blueberry pancakes, eggs Florentine, or caramelized apple crepes. Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs. We're happy to accommodate!
We're glad to help our guests, whether it is arranging a dinner reservation, getting you information on that special facial at the spa, or arranging a special surprise for your loved one.

Our house is almost 200 years old and has been carefully renovated to preserve its original character while offering our guests the utmost in comfort and convenience. Each room is soundproofed for your privacy and includes a full country breakfast, all-day access to beverages and snacks, and an evening treat.
Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Tami Anderson for sharing her own secrets with BBOnline.com! Why do most travelers stay at your inn?
Most people come to see the White Mountains. We're ideally located at the southern end of the Whites so it's an easy 2 hour drive from Boston or an hour from the Manchester airport. From our inn, guests can make day trips anywhere in New Hampshire. To the north are miles and miles of National Forest and just south of us is the Lakes Region so people can have a little taste of everything NH has to offer.
What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?
We're probably best known for our laid back and welcoming attitude. We wanted to create a place where guests felt at home and didn't feel like they were intruding in someone else's space. Our decor is country rustic so it's not fussy.
The Sunny Grange is an old farmhouse and we wanted to keep that casual ambiance. This is also what we love most about the inn. It's over 200 years old and steeped in the history of New England but also has a modern feel to it. We're unique in that we serve cooked-to-order breakfasts. Tami went to culinary school for baking and pastry but we know that everyone's tastes are different so there are a minimum of three options each morning for breakfast ranging from sweet Grand Marnier French toast to savory omelets.
If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?
Come to see the beauty of New Hampshire. There is so much to see that no matter what your hobbies or interests, you will always find something to captivate you. The mountains are beautiful, the hiking breathtaking. There are scenic drives, great antique stores, covered bridges, canoeing, kayaking, skiing...if you like the outdoors, this is the place for you!
What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?
Our repeat business and guests' recommendations to friends are the greatest compliments we can receive. Over the years we've enjoyed getting to know our "regulars" and look forward to seeing them again and again and take pride in knowing that The Sunny Grange continues to be our guests' favorite getaway. As far as direct compliments, someone recently wrote in our guestbook that we were the most "genuine" place they'd ever stayed. That got to the heart of how we want people to feel. It's a place created with love and pride and we want our guests to enjoy themselves--it's as simple as that.
What’s the best kept secret about the area?
The Eddy is a great local swimming hole that's about 5 minutes from the inn. Sunbathe, skip stones, swim and bring a picnic!
If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?
1. Do a day hike. My favorite in the area is the Welch-Dickey loop just a few miles from the house. It takes most people between 3 and 4 hours with views for about an hour of that as you traverse between the two peaks. There are hikes for every skill level though, so don't be shy even if you haven't put on hiking boots in a while!
2. Drive the scenic Kancamagus Highway across to the state to North Conway. Stop along the way and see the Basin, take one of the many hikes along the way, or take a dip at the Lower Falls. In N. Conway, hit the outlet malls if you're in the shopping mood, then loop around and see Mt. Washington. You can drive to the top, take the Cog Railway or just get amazing views as you drive by.
3. See the Flume Gorge. Franconia Notch State Park should not be missed and the Flume is the crown jewel. You can choose to just see the Gorge from the boardwalk or walk a 2 mile loop through fairytale scenery. You can also purchase a Discovery Pass which includes a trip up the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway. Continue north to Littleton where you can check out one of my favorite independent bookstores, The Village Bookstore. Don't forget to visit Chutters, the world's longest candy counter!
4. Experience the Lakes Region. Rent a canoe or take a boat tour on Squam Lake, where On Golden Pond was filmed. It is the picture of pristine New Hampshire. Drive around Lake Winnipesaukee and stop at one of the many quaint lakeside towns along the way.
Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?
There are a couple of restaurants and bars as well as The Owl's Nest Golf Club and its facilities within a mile of the inn. There's also a general store and a church.
What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?
A local favorite is the Mad River Tavern which has been feeding hungry skiers and tourists for decades. I also enjoy driving up to Waterville Valley (11 miles) and visiting the Coyote Grill. We have recommendations for every palate and budget and depending on your day's plans, can also inform you of restaurants farther afoot!
Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference? How many rooms does your inn have?
We have a total of 6 rooms--4 of which are queen rooms with a private bath and 2 of which are suites. Suites have king beds, separate sitting rooms with a daybed as well as jacuzzi tubs and gas stoves.
Do you accept pets?
In consideration for our guests with allergies, we are unfortunately unable to accept pets. There are several nearby kennels.
