As innkeepers of a large house with 10 guest rooms, we inherently want to run an efficient household. Bill's natural inclination to find cheaper ways to operate our B&B business is also based on his previous experience as an industrial engineer. It has paid off in us saving money and energy in various ways like turning down thermostats, turning off lights when not in use, using air conditioning when in the room, etc.
We belong to a group of 13 innkeepers, the Bed & Breakfast Inns Mt. Washington Valley, which was the first B&B association in NH to become certified as (individual inns - 100%) eco friendly establishments. While we are striving to save energy to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet and preserve the natural beauty of NH, our guests are still receiving the same high level of attention and accommodation at our inns.
Next weekend, June 13 & 14, we are hosting our first annual Green Inntervention Event where you can tour nine inns and participate in various activities, including our "Twisted Yankee Swap." Come up to the Buttonwood Inn and stay with us for this event, where summer is finally here with flowers blooming, sun shining, and birds singing.
