Welcome to Canterbury Center Bed & Breakfast

Where History Meets Hospitality

Lois regrets she will be away in the UK August 14-25 and also unable to take bookings September 2-9. Thereafter she will be back in Canterbury and welcoming fall visitors willing to bear with the construction adjacent to the guest house.

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. 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


The Canterbury Farmer's Market is about to open for the 2017 season, and breakfasts will continue to feature produce from both the local farms and orchards.

Lois regrets that she cannot take new bookings in the middle of August. Existing bookings will be honored but Lois will be away August 14-25 in the UK assisting her elderly parents. Thereafter, Lois and Howard will be at home in Canterbury during the foliage season, through to mid October. 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. During the summer and fall, Lois is regularly purchasing produce from the excellent fresh foods available at the weekly Canterbury Farmer's Market.
