Our Story

We’ve loved every minute of our journey


John and Trisha Basiliere became new owners of this historic estate in 2013 and have dedicated countless hours and a true passion to bring a piece of Tilton history back to its original beauty and elegance! Both John and Trish have a passion for hospitality. In addition to owning the Black Swan Inn John has spent almost 45 years as a flute maker for the William S. Haynes flute company out of Boston and Trisha has had a career for over 20 years as a licensed massage therapist. 

The Black Swan Inn has an enchanting history and the enchantment continues thanks to the love your hosts put into the Inn.  John and Trish enjoy visiting with their guests and sharing stories of the inns rich history as well as hosting private events at the Inn including a variety of fun public events for the Inn guests and the community.


"We look to offer an alternative to the hotel chains, and always take pride in the personal service we offer, the attentiveness, and genuine concern for the comfort of our guests."- Trish Basiliere 

When they are not welcoming guests you may find them bringing joy to those visiting their other business 48 Main Café’ and Creperie in Meredith, NH.
