The Dawson bedroom looks directly upon the riverside conservation land named for a former owner of The 1797 House, noted environmentalist Alexandra Dawson. You will have stunning views of the Connecticut River in all seasons and glorious sunset views bestowed by a fortuitous Westward jog of the river. Lovers of nature, farm fields and early American architecture will enjoy walks along the historic West Street common. We are pet friendly! And friendly to all.

Andy is an exceptional host - very accommodating, present, helpful and friendly. Betty the Beagle is so friendly and curious, a heart stealer; good luck not wanting to take her home with you. She and Andy were patient with my friend and I and my two pugs. The 1797 House is a hist…

A very thoughtful and helpful review, Emily. The door has been planed into a better fit after it REALLY got stuck on the room’s next guest. And I will renew my efforts to have the tidiest and happiest experience for all our guests.
