Mt. Washington Bed and
Breakfast is a seven guest room, family owned bed and breakfast. The Federal
style farmhouse was built in the mid 1800's and was bought by Harvey and Susannah
Philbrook in 1853. The Philbrook's owned the B & B until 1929 when it was sold
to the Tanner Family. The Tanner's ran the B & B as "The Androscoggin Inn" until
1984. The current owners, the Mayers, purchased the B & B in 1999 and have been
running the Mt. Washington Bed & Breakfast since then.
The Bed & Breakfast is reported to have been part of the Underground Railroad.
The B & B sits on a hill overlooking the Androscoggin River and Reflection Pond
and is located in the Androscoggin River Valley. In the spring, or after significant
rainfall you can also see Giant Falls as it tumbles over the Mahoosic
Range in Shelburne. As
you relax on our porch, you can gaze at Mount
Washington - on a clear day you can see the Observatory's towers and the smoke
from the Cog Railway as it
makes its way to the highest peak in the Northeast (6288 feet!).
