Herban Living Bed & Breakfast Suite

General Miller House, home of the Herban Living Bed & Breakfast

Colonial Simplicity in the heart of
New Hampshire's Monadnock Region

Located in the classic scenery of the traditional New England countryside in the heart of New Hampshire's Monadnock Region, Herban Living Bed & Breakfast Suite takes you into the historic setting of the General Miller House of Temple, New Hampshire. Rich with history and romance, this traditional colonial farmhouse was originally built in 1760, and is surrounded by over 150 private acres of forest and farmland.

Interior Living Room and Fireplace

The Bed & Breakfast Suite is located in the original two room portion of the house, and offers a private living room, full bath, private entrance, fireplace and separate bedroom with full-sized bed. (There's also a foldout queen-sized futon sofa in the living room.)

During your stay you'll enjoy delicious home-cooked breakfasts straight from the Herban Living Farm, a regional organic farm and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), supplying organic garden produce, fresh eggs, and reknowned goat cheese to local residents.

Secret backyard herb garden

Over your morning coffee, you can enjoy a stroll through your own secret garden filled with fresh herbs and ever-blooming perennials, or venture out on a hike through the surrounding woods on one of the many trails that traverse the surrounding woods and farmland. Or perhaps you'd just like to curl up with a good book in front of the fireplace.

Minutes away in every direction you'll have access to the outdoor splendor and serenity of Southern New Hampshire's famous Monadnock region, celebrated by poets and writers such as Nathaniel Hawthorne (a once frequent visitor to the General Miller House) and Henry David Thoreau.

Hiking (all levels), biking, lake and river kayaking, cross-country skiing, and outdoor adventures of all kinds and for all seasons abound, set within pristine landscapes and rustic farmstead scenery of Southern New England. And for the lucky Fall visitor, there's the unparalleled splendor of New Hampshire's forests in peak foliage season.

Herban Living B&B is also less than 15 minutes away from Peterborough, New Hampshire, with its numerous art galleries and shops, like the Sharon Arts Gallery or the International Museum of Folk Art, featuring local and international artists, designers and craftspeople. You'll also find a delicious array of world-class dining experiences in the area, such as Peterborough's Aqua Bistro Restaurant, or the Noone Falls Cafe.
