Meet Doug and Donna-Marie, new innkeepers of Buttonwood Inn.

Donna-Marie and Doug decided to change their everyday hectic “city life” routines and opted to live life pure and simple in the Mt. Washington Valley in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. After spending over 25 years respectively in educational leadership and transportation management dreaming of living a simpler life and sharing it with others became a reality when they bought the Buttonwood Inn. The Buttonwood Inn, a beautiful and charming 1800’s country farmhouse sitting at the base of Mount Surprise was a perfect fit. Their passion to live sustainably and environmentally friendly while sharing their zeal for a greener natural existence was a major reason to embark on this endeavor. Farm to table foods, pure well water, artisan clean baking, fresh eggs and vegetables from local farms are a small sampling of their clean and greener daily offerings.

Read what our guests think of Buttonwood Inn … “Donna and Doug thank you so much for making our anniversary special. Thank you for ordering the flowers and providing the treats. We love your Inn and truly appreciated Doug’s hard work getting the pool open and heated for us. Thank you for taking good care of us and feeding us delicious gluten free food. Loved coming back from an outing and finding Donna’s cookies and tea waiting for us. It’s been wonderful. We will be back” – Jana & Steven G.
