About Lynne Smithwood

This home was purchased by the Romac family in 1968 and run as a bed and breakfast since 1999. As the fifth family to own this historic property in over 300 years, we enjoy sharing our stewardship with guests. Each stay includes our famous 'ten cent tour' showing period features such as our indoor smoke room, beehive oven, and the dining room used as a tavern during the Revolutionary War as well as stories about the families who have lived in this home.

Why Lynne Smithwood chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

Stay in a home built when the Boston Post Road was only a dirt path in front of the house and where the mail was delivered weekly by horseback. Enjoy a fire in the original keeping room where bread was baked in an oven shaped like a beehive. Choose to have breakfast prepared from organic veggies and fruit grown on the property. Stay in one of three suites with private outdoor sitting areas or use the entire property for your special event. Our recently renovated barn is the perfect additional space for larger numbers

What makes this house unique

Guests are invited for a morning walk around neighboring ponds or hike the ski area adjacent to our home. Help pick veggies for your morning omelette or berries to topFitch House Waffles. A moonlit snowshoe through the fields completes a winters day. We can customize any stay to meet each guests needs, including our special packages with a variety of activity options. One favorite is our women's weekend including such activities as yoga, massage, skiing and hiking, an adventure to area museums and antiques shops or a guided bike tour through historic Concord and Lexington. Authors and book groups enjoy tea and fresh baked goods in front of the fire watching up to 22 different birds enjoy the feeders.

Worked out perfectly for our large family!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great time at the Fitch house. If you are expecting modern, you will be disappointed. Instead, it is a 1700's built home converted to a B & B. It has everything you need. The bedrooms are cozy and the linens are nice. The homeowner, Lynne, was fabulous. She met us at the house and gave us a tour and a complete history of the property. She truly opened up her house to us. She even helped my brother coordinate shipping his golf clubs back to FL. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and the house and outside areas are full of nooks and crannies for peaceful contemplation. If you've ever wanted to experience living in a 1700's house this is your chance!
