Owners Lois Scribner and Howard Moffett welcome you to their historic 1790s home!
All Bed and Breakfasts in NH are waiting for the statewide directions regarding procedures for safe reopening during this Coronavirus Pandemic. The intention here at Canterbury Center Bed and Breakfast will be to restrict occupancy, practice social distancing and require mask wearing inside, in the common areas, stagger breakfasts or offer room service. But, for now we are waiting to hear what the state will mandate for our small sector of the economy. We are fortunate to have a very large Parlor where guests could be much further apart than six feet. Caution is the guiding principle.
Experience the beauty of a New Hampshire Summer at Canterbury Center Bed & Breakfast. Our historic guest house is conveniently located in the picturesque Center of Canterbury, centrally located in mid-state Merrimack County, New Hampshire, and easily accessible from Interstate 93 and Route 132.
We are an easy car drive from Canterbury Shaker Village and the NH Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH and offer a simple, quiet, restful environment inspired by the Canterbury's Shaker heritage and Canterbury's rural history. Our parlor now has a wood stove to make your evenings cozy.

Tranquil & QuietCanterbury is tranquil and quiet in the evenings.
There are no pubs or restaurants in town during evening hours
Lois or Howard can suggest restaurants for guests who do not know the area when they are looking for a supper venue in Concord or Tilton.
The quiet should last all night because there are no televisions in the guest rooms, so while it is possible to use laptops and devices to catch up on news etc, there is no late night TV noise to contend with.
