Welcome to Canterbury Center Bed & Breakfast

Update on Availability:   Lois regrets that the Bed and Breakfast will be closed from June 19th to July 2nd when she has to be in the UK for a visit with her father. She plans to be in Canterbury through July to October. Please be in touch by email to inquire about vacancies for the most swift response. Phone messages will be answered as soon as possible too but email reaches Lois faster. The fourth guest room, which will be named for Susannah Foster Parker, will be up and running by late May.

Where History Meets Hospitality

Owners Lois Scribner and Howard Moffett welcome you to their historic 1790s Canterbury home!
The historic guest house is conveniently located in the picturesque Center of Canterbury, in mid-state Merrimack County, New Hampshire, and is 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. We offer a simple, quiet, restful environment partly inspired by the Shaker heritage and the rural history of Canterbury itself.

Reservations can be made by emailing lois@canterburycenterbedandbreakfast.com or calling 603 783 0206


There will be some construction work occurring on site to create living space for them, and although this may not be picturesque, the guest rooms will be minimally affected.

Near Shaker Village & NHMS

The three guest rooms are delightfully and comfortably appointed and have their own ensuite bathrooms. Each is named for a significant person who contributed to the history of Canterbury.

Come visit and enjoy Canterbury Center Bed & Breakfast’s hospitality, its historic ambience and delectable breakfasts which will treat you to healthy, farm fresh, local and seasonal Canterbury produce. Lois is happy to cater to individual dietary needs and preferences.

We're Growing

Canterbury Center Bed & Breakfast is growing and we're open while under construction.  Lois regrets that the Parlor is not available for guest use during these months. The Parlor will be once again in the spring of 2018 when a fourth bedroom will become open for booking at the front of the house. 

Come stay and check out our progress!

Enjoy our farm fresh breakfasts and experience the beauty of autumn in Canterbury, New Hampshire at Canterbury Center Bed and Breakfast.

Tranquil and Quiet

Canterbury 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.
